it's been a long time since i have featured anything other then fabric on this site, but i'm ready to spice things up a little. it took some arm twisting but i am going to part w/ this insanely cute vintage enamel flour canister. i bought her to sell on the site but once she landed in my kitchen, she felt at home b/w my other bread box and flour canister...sadly, my husband has a point...we don't need three of these (but i loved how her color popped against my DR draperies *sigh*) okay, back to the point....she is for sale. vintage enamel flour canister in a very rare color, robin's egg blue, with black raised letters. 10" H x 10"D...14" w/ handles, old but fab condition....these are going anywhere from $135-$175 in antique stores and online.
