I’m totally calling this trend out myself! Taking a break from production, I walked down to my neighborhood corner store and found a little design gem, also known as Jolly Time popcorn cardboard tins! Instantly fell in love with the size and graphics, I bought 3! Now, I’ve done a bit of research and looks like popcorn companies introduced popcorn tins in the 1940s. Um, how fantastic are they??? Of course, I asked the store owner where he purchased the 10oz cans and of course, a food wholesaler. I can’t seem to find today’s version (cardboard tin) for purchase anywhere online. You can find the antiques online through collectors and Ebay but watch out for the hefty price. With our pop culture’s love for typography, decades of 1940 thru 1960s & reusing vintage, I can only imagine weddings will too. ¬†Use them similarly as the tea leaf tins, as flower vases, boxes or simple decor prop elements. If you can find today’s version, they’d make super wedding favors!
