Organizing: Vintage Tins Turned Refrigerator Magnets

I always look forward to Spring and the promise of warm-weather outdoor flea markets. After what feels like a long winter, I can hardly wait to get out on a blacktop covered in tables stacked with vintage finds.

    Hang on! Is your fridge stainless and magnets stick?? Where did you get the neodymium magnets? I love this idea!!

    • #3 - Cathe Holden says:

      Yes, our last SS fridge would NOT hold magnets. Our new(er) one will! The appliance folks are getting with the program!

      You can find those magnets in lots of places, Michaels, Target, Hardware stores…. look in the office supply section. They are the little shiny silver ones that pack a punch.
