Something I've been wanting for a very long time is a vintage cookie jar. I've searched high and low, in antique malls, on on ebay - but I don't want a freaky clown or a goose with a bow around its neck holding on to my Oreo's or snickerdoodles. I loved my grandmothers' cookie jar (a train - The "Cookie RR" to be exact). It was always a surprise to lift the lid and find something in there. Sometimes homemade, sometimes store bought but always yummy. I want that kind of tradition in my house (yes, even after the holidays when I really don't feel like I want to eat another cookie ever again).
After a fun trip to my favorite antique mall last week I was re-inspired to keep looking for a cookie jar. When I got home and checked Etsy Vintage I was pleasantly surprised at the offerings there. Here are my top picks. Should it be whimsical? Have good typography? Be understated? Help me decide! Leave me a comment as to your favorite one.
