Swank Band-Aid tin
This has got to be the coolest Band-Aid tin EVER. Makes having a boo-boo fashionable, huh? Andrea found this at a booth at the infamous Lakewood Antiques Flea Market here in Atlanta. We were kinda on a budget at the time, but after taking one look at this thing, there was no question in buying it. It was just too cool to pass up. There's no date shown, but I'm guessing '60 or '61.
Just look at how the image of the woman wraps around the corner there. I love the fact that the designer(s) used only 3 colors and that they decided to not color her hair. And check out the font used for "sheer." I love it. In fact, that same font is used on the back:
Check out the cool hip family there. Mom knows what's going on. She got style when it comes to covering up boo-boos.
This tin currently resides on my desk at work. I look at it practically every day.
