Anyway, even on ebay there are so many worn out and incomplete sets. But I had decided that it might be fun to buy something and just look for the rest of the pieces as I shop around. That is part of the fun, after all.
I had to leave my desk for some reason or another and never returned to bid...
Later in the day I had to run a few errands that took me to he down Town Plano area o I decided to stop in at one of the Antique Malls I frequent....they had nothing in regards to canister sets....but I did get a vintage train case (yes, another one...I am addicted) and this one matches the vintage suit case I bought last week at an estate sale. More to come on that....
Anyway, since I was in the neighborhood, I stopped in at the little Thrift Store that has turned into a gold mine for me (maybe one trinket at a time but I have found some wonderful things there). I browsed around and made my way t the ONE shelf they have in regards to housewares and found my coveted Lincoln Beauty Ware Mid-Century Canisters that I have bee searching high and low to find. The exact set I have wanted....not settling on something I really did not want....I found THE SET I WANTED....with the exception of ONE canister, the coffee canister, it was complete with lids, the black finales on top, and the labels (one corner is missing on "Tea" think). I piled each canister into my arms and went to pay.
The cashier saw that the price was marked for a set of 4 and called up the lady in the back and asked her if they were mis marked or was there another canister lurking in the back....so off she went to search. She came back holding the "Coffee" canister!!!!
