Mr. SixBalloons and I hit up a great garage sale in downtown Vancouver this summer. It was held just outside a large apartment building on a busy urban street corner. The seller tweeted photos and updates before and during the sale, so it felt like a garage sale from the future. Haha.
Among her many awesome items, I had my eye on these Country Festival Bluebird glass cannisters. Have you ever seen anything like it? This pattern is normally seen on Corningware pieces, which I've begrudgingly passed on before.
This pattern is so cute and whimsical. I definitely don't want to add more to my already good-sized Corningware collection in the blue cornflower pattern, so I'm glad I was able to get these practical pieces instead.
The cork stoppers are also in good shape, which is nice. I am thinking of keeping rice in the tall one, and perhaps steel cut oats in the shorty. I paid $3 for the pair - the pricing at this sale was great!
I wonder if these were produced by Corning. There are no markings, but the print and the pieces themselves are beautiful and in great shape!
