The Chip King Toronto - Vintage Potato Chip Tin

The Chip King Toronto - Vintage Potato Chip Tin


Ding, Ding, Ding!

Back in the day, hearing a ringing bell going around your neighbourhood was a joy. There were lots of businesses that operated by going around the sprawling suburbs ringing a bell and vending their wares curbside such as the Dickie Dee, the guy who sharpens knives, and The Chip King.

This is a great old kitchen tin with excellent color and graphics. It was manufactured by The Chip King Company out of Toronto, Ontario Canada. It is 9" x 8 1/2" and is not an easy tin to come by.

This tin is in somewhat poor condition with some dents and dings, fading, and rust on the lid as pictured.

Shipping from Canada

All Canadian and USA orders ship in sturdy packaging through Canada Post's regular service.

Overseas orders 1lb or 12" or under will automatically ship via Air Mail at 7 - 10 business days. Orders over these dimensions will ship via SEA MAIL which takes 6 - 12 weeks with orders usually arriving within 7 weeks. This method is slow but very economical and reliable despite the slow pace.

Overseas orders over 1lb or 12" can be upgraded to Air Mail service but this can be up to double the shipping cost. For most accurate rate, contact us.

Our policy is to refund any overcharge on shipping.

Returns and exchange details

Due to the nature of vintage items being used, we cannot guarantee that any item will be in perfect working condition. Oftentimes vintage items need a bit more creativity to operate than a brand new item and can have unique quirks like a stiff button, or wiggly latch. We do our best to thoroughly test and describe the condition of every item we sell.
Returns will be handled on a case by case basis, and partial refunds will not be given under any circumstances.

Returns must be shipped back at customer's expense and original purchase and shipping will be refunded after a case is opened with Canada Post.
