My friend, Shannon, gave me this container for my birthday. The color is bright blue and amazingly the rubber is still in tact. The reason I say amazingly is that the year was 1983. The gift is 31 years old. That was before I was married or before I had children. That was before my husband got a PhD. We were at the lake house with the lake in full view. The candles were lit and the night was young. I opened the gift and loved the color. The deep blue would go with any cottage kitchen or any farmhouse kitchen. I lived in a townhouse at the time and the container looked great there, too. This morning, I cleaned the coffee out and not just any coffee, dark roast Community Coffee. The container is now ready to put on the market. Look for it soon at Rocky Springs Vintage and Art on Etsy and Ebay.
