Vintage Bauer Strawberry Canisters

I couldn't believe my eyes when I spied these canisters on the shelf at my local Goodwill earlier this week.  They are in perfect condition and have the Bauer name on the bottom.  There was a Coffee one but it had a large crack and I decided to leave it there.  The best part was the price.  Flour and Sugar were $2.99 each and Tea $1.99.  Better than that it was Senior Day with it's 25% discount.  Total price $5.97 for all three.  I put them in my cart and rushed to the front to pay for them. 
The wood was dried but I used a little vegetable oil and they look good as new.  Don't they look perfect sitting on the counter above my sink.  My vintage kitchen counter tile still shines after almost 60 years. 

I'm linking to Vintage Thingie Thursday.  Please check out all the wonderful Vintage Treasures.

You were wise in getting these. I have not seen them in a long time. To find them in this condition is a blessing.

Fantastic Find, Pam, and they do look perfect on your counter which is amazing, too! I use all of my vintage Canisters...love the way they look and the idea that they have been so well used for someone's Home Sweet Home Kitchen.

Your Bloggy looks pretty in purple and all Springy! Love the header picture. Very nice!
