VI - What made you start collecting these?

I always liked pretty vintage things and when I stumbled upon some beautiful tins at an old relatives house I was delighted. So I started collecting them, and I never paid more than five dollars a piece. Most of them I got as gifts from friends and family and I use them to store anything from  jewelry to food.

VI - What's your favorite tin out of your collection?

I love this blue tin that once belonged to my grandmother. I use it to store crisp bread and biscuits.

VI - What's missing from your collection, that you dream about having? 

I don't really feel that I am missing anything in particular. I buy whatever I like without giving it too much thought.

VI - What do you think makes a great collector or a great collection?

A complete collection means nothing compared to a collectors taste and ability to pick out the best pieces.There are plenty of tins at vintage stores so you have be quite picky, unless you have a huge storage space for your collection.
