Tin can containers with advertising have always been popular.

Tin containers are loved for decoration, especially when enjoying the many colors and designs from their advertising. Some are very collectible. But they’re nearly all quite utilitarian. They make perfect storage containers for a very wide variety of items from bags of flours to cookies, yarns to crayons, and just about anything you might think of.

Tin Trays decorated with advertising or painted beautifully  are a beautiful addition to everyday usage and/or entertaining. Available at Bahoukas in Havre de Grace.
Tin Trays offer everything from advertising, to tourism messages, and symbols of the states.

Tin trays have been used for their primary use – carrying things. But tin trays have also been used for wall decorations or to hold things on shelves and tables. They come in pretty much every shape and size. Many collectors love them for their advertising as well.

Here at Bahoukas we also have a wonderful assortment of decorative, tin signs. Some have old advertisements on them, others are just great images, like the surfboards in the one pictured to the left.

Stop in and see the many tin collectibles we have at Bahoukas Antique Mall and Beer MuZeum. Then think about the creative ways you might use them in your home or office, or which ones you might add to your collection.

And yep, we’ll be watchin’ for ya!
