I have always loved crayons and coloring - as a young girl - as a teenager - and still as an adult! Yes, I'm one of those people who have gotten on the coloring trend again! I've already bought new crayons, tons of colored pencils and three coloring books for adults! It is so much fun and very calming. This tin was given to me by my Mom for Xmas many years ago. I can't remember if it had crayons in it - or candy! The box of crayons are some I found in an antique shop (again many years ago). I think they could be from the 1930's or 1940's. Either way - I love them. I will never color with them - they are just for gazing at!
