Thrift Find: Treasure Chest

I found this cute little treasure chest (a.k.a. a tin box) at the flea market a couple months ago and am still infatuated with it. I love the colors. I think it's supposed to be a Christmas tin, but really I think I'll keep it out all year. Right now it's holding various ribbons and buttons.
I just thought of this as I was writing this post, but if any of you have a Flickr account, add me as a contact if you want and I'll add you! Check out my photostream: http://www.flickr.com/photos/oohvintage/ and add me!

I love unique finds from the flea market! We have a huge flea market here that I used to have a booth in and I always strived to have the most unusual and coolest things. I miss my booth, honestly. lol

That's a beautiful box! You are so lucky! Flea markets are something that is not common here in Singapore and something that I would look forward to when I travel overseas! Thanks for sharing your awesome find! :)

What a lovely treasure you've found. I wish we had a flea market here. I'll have to get out and hit some thrift stores soon instead.
