When online stalking is a good thing!

What Can You Put In A Tin?

One little metal tin with a hinged lid. Seven clever Etsy shop owners. What can YOU put in a tin?

What Can You Put In A Tin?

If you’re tired of playing cat’s cradle with your tangled headphones, keep them contained in this cheerful holder. You’ll find it at Tiny Tins which is chock full of fun metal containers in a variety of sizes.

Brag Tins provides this accordion style 12 page scrapbook; all you need to do is add pictures! The scrapbook fits right inside the coordinating tin keeping your photos safe in your purse or as an eye-catching display on a desk.

Perfect for gift giving, this tin comes filled with five Lees Bees all natural lip balm in flavors like Hazelnut Latte and Ginger Peach. As a lip balm junkie myself, I love the idea of having them all in a tin instead of having to dig through my cluttered bag.


Mau Creations
suggest using this little tin in lieu of gift wrap. Sporting an original design depicting Mau the Ninja Kitty stealing sushi, it’s definitely got more personality than the tired gift bags I tend to re-use.

Got a road trip planned for the summer? Keep your kids occupied with a portable amusement kit from ArtyDidact. Intended for children 3 and over, each kit contains an assortment of tiny toys, random objects, and vintage game pieces meant to inspire imaginative play.

Forget trying to squeeze the last bit of lotion from a bottle or dealing with liquid restrictions at airline security. Serenity Soapworks offers you a solid lotion bar in a handy dandy tin. There are plenty of great scents to choose from, and if you can’t decide on one, take advantage of their discount for buying three!

Look closely…there’s no paint here. This tin has been covered in detailed polymer clay canes of the artist’s own design. Whether you keep pills, change, or jewelry in it, it’s as beautiful as it is functional. Available from Polymer Clay Shed.

Happy Stalking!
Curator V.

Adorable :) I love having little tins and boxes around, even if I never end up using them for anything more than decoration!
