4. Servalier Astro Bowls – 1972
Originally introduced in the 1960s, the Servalier line came in all sort of fun colors and featured an “instant touch” seal that required you to use only one finger to get Tupperware’s famous, air-tight seal. These days, a vintage set of four astro bowls sells for $15-20 – considering the great colors and fun design of the lid, we’d much rather use those to brighten up our kitchen instead of the standard, clear food storage options out there today.
3. Cake Taker – 1970s
Based off of Tupperware’s successful Pie Taker from the ‘50s, the Cake Taker is a similar storage and transport product that made it way easier for people to bring cakes to different parties and events. This one from the 1970s is worth $20-25 today and is still just as practical as ever! If someone showed up at our house with a homemade cake in that carrier, we’d be pleased as punch!
2. Condiment Relish Caddy and Salad Dressing Bottles – 1970s
The Tupperware Condiment Caddy was introduced in the ‘50s, though these sets are from the 1970s as another way to conveniently carry your condiments from room to room as the party moves around. Vintage caddies with the lids and spoons in good condition go for $12-15 – such a steal! Similarly, these salad dressing bottles have push-button seals, making them great for just about any liquid you want to pour or keep sealed as needed. Given the seal the ensures they won’t leak, their $10 value seems like a great bargain!
The FlatOut! Tupperware line was and continues to be a hit, considering that each product in the line flattens out to take up way less space in your kitchen when not in use. The older products have brighter colors which can be fun to collect, and a 4-piece, vintage set goes for $25, so you could add a nice pop of (functional!) color to your kitchen for a reasonable price.
Okay, so while there’s definitely still a market for vintage Tupperware products, it’s not quite like collecting other vintage kitchen items – which can get expensive really quickly. Tupperware has stood the test of time, and vintage products still perform just as well these days as modern creations. For a pop of color, think about starting a collection and breathe “new” life into your kitchen!
