I just love this adorable little vintage tin recipe box from Ohio Art. I don't know its exact age, but I'm guessing the 1950's. It measures 5" long, 3" wide and 3-3/4" deep (basically standard size for these old recipe boxes meant to hold the 3" X 5" cards). It shows some age and wear, as you can see in my photos. Just adds to its vintage charm, in my opinion (except for that little bit of old price sticker glue you can see on one end, which would probably come off but I didn't try). The hinged lid works fine and closes properly (I should apologize for that little bit of paper caught in the front, but I only saw it later and didn't want to take the photos all over again). There are a few old recipes inside and I'm offering it as-is, with those included, although there aren't very many.

The box is bright yellow with a slightly darker yellow lid, and it's decorated with white and yellow daisies. Just SO cute, it would look absolutely darling in a vintage style kitchen. The bits of wear on it just help show off its authentic age and give it that genuine nostaligic feel, not like new pieces that are just made to look old. I could go on all day about how sweet it is, but I will make myself stop. :)

Asking $5.00 obo. Everything I have listed for sale is "or best offer", so feel free to make an offer.

If you're interested in this item, you can respond through Craigslist, text, or call me at show contact info (ask for Cheri) to arrange pickup.

I sell a lot of items on Craigslist, so please take a look at my other stuff (sometimes free items as well). I come from a huge family of serious hoarders, so... Well, some people have yard sales, but I'm not able to do that, so I do this instead. It clears out the house and helps me get the last of my kids through college. All you have to do is search the word SALMAGUNDI on Craigslist, and all of my items should come up for you.

Thanks and have a great day!
