Vintage Tupperware



My latest garage sale find




Vintage Tupperware.




At the flea market near my house, one lady has a whole store of vintage tupperware and pyrex dishes. I could spend so much time there.


It seems every decade has beautiful items, except for the 70's. Lots of gold, brown, avacodo green and orange items that haven't quite come back into style. Maybe we learned a hard lesson that decade, lol. BUT there are starting to be adults now that remember these items as part of their childhood...and are willing to overlook their ugliness for that moment of nostalgia.


I, on the other hand, bought them to store powdered sugar and brown sugar ;o) Okay, maybe they do make me feel a little warm and fuzzy on the inside. But I do have my limits...no crocheted doll toilet paper cover, no owl wall hangings and no orange shag carpet.


Paid $1 each for these. There was a 3rd one but the lid wouldn't go on.
can be seen at debbiedoos and Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays at Coastal Charm! Go check them out :o)

  2. hahaha - I'm laughing at your comments about crocheted doll toilet paper cover (I didn't have one, but Mom did.), owl wall hangings (does a framed picture count?), and orange shag carpet (my bedroom floor in the 70's). Yep, I guess I'm that old.

  10. I love the really large Tupperware canisters. They are the best! Yep the colors of the 70's weren't all that pretty but they were vibrant!!

  11. My mom still has her "burnt organge" tupperware canister set. The thing I remember most about them is that you never knew you were out of sugar until you opened the lid :0)

  16. Oh my gosh! Did you take me back in time! I was a newly married young lady in the mid 70's. I thought I was so cool with my newly purchased brown refrigerator and my avocado green stove! Eeek! To my dismay...or maybe sentimental heart..I still have one orange tupperware flour container in the back of my pantry. Hey...it still locks the air out! Tee Hee!! Thanks for sharing your great finds! Hugs!

  17. I have a whole set of orange ones. They are currently holding nuts and bolts in my husband's garage. My Mom sold Tupperware in the 70's so we had our fair share of green, gold and yellow.
