Tin Houses or House Tins

I told you that I collect tins shaped like houses. I like all tins, but I just have a fascination with the ones shaped like buildings. Here are some of my collection.




I know this one isn't a house, but I couldn't resist getting it.

  1. What a neat collection, Ms. Patrice. Do you have them all lined up on a shelf. Some friends of ours collect vintage items and they have a shelf all around the top of their sun room to display their things. It's so neat. I'm gonna be on the lookout for house-shaped tins when I visit thrift stores from now on!!!

  2. I love your tin house collection Patrice. Do you use them as decorations for Christmas too? They would make a nice Christmas village. JB

  4. Love them! Year ago I used to collect unique tins. Over time, I found myself parting with them and now wish I still had them. I do have a lot of Christmas ones, but no houses. I'll have to keep my eyes open for some. Those are too adorable.

  8. I like houses, all sorts! I have seen two of your tins, but now I can't remember where. I had a lovely tin dollhouse in the early 60's. I wish I still had it.

  11. I think those tins are so cute- I just don't have anywhere to put any collectibles, so the few antiques I have gathered over the years are mostly all in boxes. :(
