This collection all started with finding the vintage Tupperware salt & pepper shakers. (718-11 and 718-15). I love the patterns and colors.
Tupperware was created in 1946 by Earl Tupperware and was primarily released to the public through the famous “Tupperware” parties in the 1950’s. The Wonderlier (round storage bowl sets in those fantastic colors) tended to be the best sellers, however there we also Jello molds, cake carriers, pitchers, storage containers, condiment dispensers, etc. Pretty much anything that you needed to house or store, there was a Tupperware container that would hold it. Each Tupperware piece comes along with it’s own ID number and stamped with the famous circles emblem and Tupperware branding.
In your local thrift stores, you can find these pieces for $1.99 at the most for the smaller pieces and under $5.00 for the larger sizes. Here are some examples of their current prices. The salt and pepper shakers were purchased for $1.00 each and can now be found online for $15.00 used. The blue Tupperware canisters were $4.99 and are easily over $30.00 on many online websites. The Jello mold was purchased for less than $2.00 and goes for over $15.00 online.
Tupperware was “Made in the USA” and comes with a lifetime guarantee. Now, what’s not to love?
