Singer Tins

I fell in love with vintage Singer sewing machines long ago. Once you get interested in something, you begin to collect all things pertaining to it! Here is a subset  of my Singer Sewing collection, my tins. I don’t remember where I got most (any?) of these or if any of them are available anywhere. But they are fun and I thought I would share them with you today.

The wheels really turn on this one and the top opens for storage.

There is also a little secret compartment in the front!

This repro oil tin was made for Singer’s 150th anniversary.

It looks like an oil can from the top, but the whole thing lifts off for storage.

I have Singer 101, so I had to have this tin with one on the lid!

Here are pictures of the side graphics.

I have a couple tan 301s and black 15s just like those pictured on the lid of this tin!

The next one most likely held attachments originally. It was empty when I bought it.

The last two seem to be pretty common. I purchased mine from Joann’s or some place like that a long time ago.

Mine are not pristine because I have used them a lot over the years!

Have a great day!

    Love your collection Katy! I have a few Singer items that I have collected to or been given. Always keep my eyes open when I go to Estate sales too 🙂

  2. I love these! So, now I need to start searching for machines and tins. LOL

    What a fun collection! I think I have a couple of the same ones, but some I’ve never seen before – like that truck! Awesome!

  4. That truck!! Thanks for sharing, so fun 🙂

  5. I remember these tins from the 90s and the Old America stores that carried them. (I believe Old America stores are now called Hobby lobby)

  6. Oh no! I am a collector at heart and now you’ve introduced me to a new potential habit. These are so cute!! That was a great idea for a blog post, I’m glad you thought of it. 🙂

    These are great! I’ve never seen them before. I have a 1952 Featherweight which I love. I didn’t know about the tins. Have a great day. Hugs,

    Thanks for sharing your lovely collection.

  10. Hubby and I found old Singer oil cans at an antique shop a few days ago, along with a singer machine with a treadle base. (I left that at the shop, but about killed me to do so!) I totally relate to the ‘once you start collecting’ bug! You have some really great tins there!

  11. What a great collection of tins you have there Katy!!
