Vintage Calumet cans -- Ruby (Red) Tuesday --Free to family members
I sent this message to local family members Monday night, so far no takers. Those more distant are welcome too but I would have to mail them. I would wipe the Nebraska dust off the lid(s) if requested.
"Calumet Baking Powder, pamphlet, 1909, Reliable Recipes, nice $18.00"
"Calumet Baking Powder, pamphlet, 1907?, pic of Indian on cover, mint $20.00"
My message to the kids:
"We have three of these and don't have room for them any more. They were Grandma H's. Do you want them (free!!)? One even has the 29 cents on the lid."
Even better than that, they are actually SOLD on eBay! This one (link) has the asking price of $6.99 (buy it now) with $5.09 shipping, USPS. It has the 29 cents on the lid.
I bet you could find one of those in my Pepsi store don't you think? :)
Hope you're having a great week Jim. I'm glad you liked my new blog - sort of post a pic and go - no words - easy!
Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)
or you could give one to each adi, katrina and amber the cat!.......happy ruby tuesday,
those cans just hit the spot,eh?
The cans are rare. Why do they have a Indian advertising for baking powder?
Some hidden formula?
I agree with Raven. Heirlooms are valuable because they have a history connecting the generations.
Bet your mother made some tasty bakery with her powder!
My mother would always bake a cake for Sundays and waffles and horns for everyday coffee.
She didn't have a mixmaster (at least not when I was a preschool child9.
I sat on a kitchen stool watching her stirring sugar and butter white for the cakes.
Oh, our moms were women of rare class.
The red boxes bring good memories at least to me.

I don't think we have one of those. Mom may have had one.
