Organizing with Old Stuff

I adore antique, vintage, retro, old things.  Pieces of history with character that bring back memories or stir my imagination.  Where did this jar come from, what stories could this crate/bowl/chair/etc tell? Here are a few of my favorite old things I use in my kitchen.

Old jars hold my cupcake papers, black beans, popcorn (no microwave corn for me, please), and straws.

Vintage jars are great for holding snacks. Pecans and almonds stay fresh and crunchy!
