If you lived in the early 20th century and were prone to headaches, you probably carried one of these in your purse or coat pocket…….
This tiny tin of one dozen aspirin tablets was always at the ready to fend off a simple headache or a case of fatigued muscles. Bayer Aspirin tins are easily remembered by most of us “of a certain age,” but did you know there were other aspirin distributors?
Do you remember……....???
OK.........But do you remember……....???
Perhaps it wasn’t a headache, but a stomach ache that one should be prepared for.
Of course you remember……….!!!
Whatever the malady, these vintage tins make great collectibles because of their appealing graphics. I usually grab these tiny treasures at estate sales where I find them in sewing baskets filled with hooks/eyes or pins or in old toolboxes filled with brads and nails.
I like to display them in a small bowl...........
In an old fruit jar…......
Or even use one in a “junky” centerpiece!
Do you have any medical mini-tins?
Do you display them?
