Vintage Finds: Plantation Dainties

"Now you stand still while I get you in your Plantation Dainties, Miss Scarlett!"

I almost gotcha with the title, didn’t I? You really thought you were going to see Scarlett O’Hara-type undergarments, huh? No, but you will see some can. 

Undergarments. Maybe it says something about the way I think, but that’s absolutely what came to mind when I saw this can at an estate sale:

Not underpants

The thought of it amuses me so much I have it on my work table to enjoy every day.  

If I did ever happen to procure actual Plantation Dainties candy, I would be certain to serve them on this plate:

Deliciously dainty

      Oh wow! What a great find, Lisa! Thanks for letting me know. I do like the metal lid of the older version better, but I’m tempted to pick up a can to see if they’re any good.

      Oooh, I also like the black can – even more “sophisticated” looking. Maybe for a cocktail party rather than book club.

      If you click on it, it will take you to the shop where I found it. A must-have for a collector such as yourself.
