The tins I find the prettiest are the ones I have bought from kids selling door to door. They usually have chocolates in them. I have one that is so pretty. It is a teal color with decorative print and has a hummingbird sitting on a long on the lid. I just love it. It is a small tin only about 4" around and about 6" tall. It is my favorite. I have another small one that looks like a lattice garden. It is a small one too. I have a few from Wal Mart but I like to collect the more unusual ones.
I use to buy a few products from the candy/cheese companies out of Wisconsin. Some of them
I would buy simply because the tin was so pretty. The Danish butter cookies sold at walmart,
they have the big decorate ones at Christmas AND although I have not noticed the small ones
in the store, they sell the small ones online AND you don't usually know which decorative tins
you'll get. I ordered half a dozen of the small ones online a couple of years ago and every one
of them had a different decor tin.
Anyway, I do understand the attraction to the decor tins because many are very pretty.
