~** ViNtaGe Style **~
ViNtaGe S*N*O*W CAN Collection
I Just LoVe ALL the Wording/Graphics
On These Spray Cans!!!
**Decorative Snowflakes ~ Fragrance added!!!
*Snow Blitz Flakes
What I Look For In a ViNtaGe SNOW CAN:
#1. FAB GRAPHICS
(Lending a "feel" of an era gone by...)
#2. NO Bar-Codes
(Validates it's vintage...)
#3. A Natural Time-Worn Patina
(Gives it one-of-a-kind character)
You won't find "Bar-Codes" on 8 of my 9 Cans!!!
JuSt LoVe the Old California Mfg. Markings!!!
A*N*D the connection that I lived there at one time...
I LoVe Imperfections!*!*!
Sooooo Much MORE INTERESTING Than Brand New!!!
A Natural Time-Worn PaTiNa ~ Along with the Dent in the Cap
