Got these fabulously retro canisters to show you!!
They would brighten up any kitchen and give it a real vintage twist!

First up are these completely iconic Cornishware pieces.

The timeless blue and white stripe design was first produced in 1924 by T.G. Green & Co Ltd. 
They are highly collectable, and expensive(!), but you'll be able to pick up a bargain with these!

These are slightly more unusual, and I'll have to call them 'Retro Style'.

Produced in France, they are actually authentic looking reproductions of old tea and coffee canisters. The range are called Damier Rouge, after their distinctive red checkerboard designs, and they look very stylish as well! 

I also have three of these splendidly groovy 1960s canisters!!

In a very original olive green colour, they also have a fantastic circles, squares and stars pattern.
They would make a brilliant display in a funky looking kitchen!

I'm keeping fingers firmly crossed for the weather to behave at The Customs House Sunday Market in West Bay, Dorset on 13th May. I'll be down there and displaying these on a stall in the courtyard of this magnificent building. 
So come on down and grab some retro bargains!
