    Grandpa's soap used to come in a vintage looking package.
    Williams soap has slightly modernized, but still has a vintage look. The older package had a round circle for writing the price or applying a price tag.

    I just love Tick Tock Tea. The tea itself is really nice but even if it wasn't I'd probably buy it specially for the box! :)

    And it even comes in a nice green package for the green-tea!

    I use that too - it's so handy for air travel, what with all the restrictions on liquids there are now. Doesn't their website say you can use it to wash clothes too?!

    The container on the right of the picture from the '30s is the modern.

    Arm & Hammer hasn't changed too much.

    Thanks for reminding me about baking powder Lady Day! It turned up a few more items. The corn starch would look more vintage without the no mess label. The McCann's is a metal container with a metal press-fit lid.

    Also, I did a bit of research and it seems all products in the Clabber Girl brand family look vintage.

    I am not in Atlanta, so I don't know, but you could probably contact the company directly and ask them:

    Hope that helps :)

    Vermont's own Bag Balm - nothing better for dry extremities.

    Note though: old tin is done with handlettering.

    Current tin uses Copperplate Gothic instead.

    I find this an odd one, as the bottle and style are unchanged from their orginals or so they say. Anyway, I will continue to use it whatever they put it in.

    Last fall I found a Rumford Baking Powder cookbook from 1923 in a library book sale. I purchased it and packaged it with some (modern) RBP and gave it to my mother for Christmas. She and my Dad are both from Rhode Island, and they both used to go on school field trips to the big factory apparently.

    How can a bottle with such a pretty label, contain such a foul tasting product, its a thick syrup made of coffee and chicory that you add to hot water, - Nasty


    You may want a bottle in the kitchen for decorative purposes only!

    It's plastic, but it's got a vintage style to it.

    BUMP!!!

    I bought this box of Captain Crunch today at the store. The package seems to be from the late 60's to sometime in the 70's. Can anyone pinpoint it exactly?

    Thanx!!!
