I just found these photos that I took a couple months ago and I decided it was about time I shared another collection on here. The last one I shared was my coin collection, and here is my tin collection!
I’ve been collecting candy tins for a few years now. It all started when my friend Jessy gave me three Mario mushroom tins for Christmas. Then of course I had to buy the star one, and the Nintendo controller, and the Zelda shield! (I may have gotten a little crazy.) I will totally justify buying the most random thing if it comes in a cute tin. Like an emergency inflatable brain, or bacon gumballs. (Which are, by the way, AWFUL!)
If I had to pick a favorite, it would probably be the bacon gumballs tin. But isn’t the maple flavored toothpicks one adorable? . I want to buy a new Mario star tin, mine is looking pretty beat up. (Thanks baby Juniper.) I also have a few lunch boxes that I guess count as being a part of this collection. A Fruity Oaty Bars one my sister-in-law gave me that is super awesome, and two Star Wars ones that my mother sent along in our Christmas package.
Right now I just keep them in a basket on the bookshelf, out of Juniper’s reach. (This is her favorite collection for obvious reasons.) But I’ve been trying to come up with a nice way to display them. I may end up hanging a few small shelves in the living room for these and various other tiny treasures.
There are a handful of tins that I would like to buy (Wasabi gumballs, Ghost Busters, and of course I need to get the pink and green Keroppi ones) but the one I want the MOST is this Random Crap Mini Stash Box from Urban Outfitters. I love that thing! (The Top Secret Mini Stash Box is pretty dang awesome as well.) Oh! And these Portal Cookie Cutters come in a tin! Then I could make awesome cookies AND add to my silly collection.
