Vintage tin can of Golden State powdered milk. Golden State Dairy Product is from San Francisco California. Circa late 40s early 50s. Sold for $30.95 in spring 2009. Part of a lot I bought (details here).
This is a piece I bought online from a "brocante" to resell. I paid, including shipping, about $14, sold for $39.99 so not a huge profit but I knew it would sell. It's a beautiful decor piece for a kitchen. Just as is, or with dried flowers in it. Or fresh flowers too as long as you insert a small glass jar in it to avoid rust.
French enamel pieces are doing quite well on eBay (see what sells here). In fact old antique and vintage enamel seems to be selling good, French or not. Especially containers and coffee pots.
And I have withdrawal symptoms! It's been two weeks I haven't hit a yard sale because of the weather. And I am now in a frantic state! Last weekend was so bad, it was pouring early in the morning, and by the time it cleared I had other plans (like finding an apartment for our September move... I'd rather go to a yard sale!!!)
Vintage tin can of Stork powdered milk from the Osceola milk producers in Cleveland Ohio . Circa late 40s early 50s. Sold for $26.25 in spring 2009. This one had quite a few scratches, and rust inside. Had the original lid. This can was part of a lot I bought in France (more info here)
