SOLD! Large Decorative Floral White Metal Trash Can with Handles

I have searched and searched and searched but have not been able to find a trash can of this size and decorative painting posted for sale anywhere.  I would have expected that there must be others out there, but I can’t find any on Etsy, Amazon, eBay, Worthpoint, Wayfair, Lowe’s, Home Depot, or anywhere else.  I really doubt it’s a home-painted piece because it seems to have been done commercially, but then again?

I have, however, found dozens of the much smaller 2 gallon trash cans with decorative designs on sites like Wayfair, with prices of $179.00!

I personally wouldn’t use this for trash. It’s far too pretty!  It seems a better use would be for dog food (or bird seed – an easy way to keep the mice out); the tight fitting lid should help keep even large amounts of pet food fresh… and it’s certainly easier to get at than dealing with bulky bags.  Alternatively, use for a clothes hamper, toy or blanket storage, or whatever else strikes your fancy! 

It has an offset bottom to keep the can itself off the ground.

Dimensions:  It’s big:   18″ in diameter at the top, and about 23″ high.

Condition:  Structurally, it’s in good solid condition with no dents or holes, and just a tiny amount of rust on the bottom.  Visually, it’s great condition.  The white is white, the flowers are very bright and colorful, and it’s just an over-all fun and nice looking can with a tight fitting lid.  It’s super clean inside.

FIRM Price:  $75.00, plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax of $4.13 for a total of $79.13.

Unless we’re having a sale, which would be listed here, our prices are firm.  

Our Apologies, But Holds Over 24 Hours Must Now Provide a 50% Deposit: As we’ve gotten busier, I’m spending a great deal of time juggling multiple requests for the same item.  Most of the time, something comes up in the customer’s life that prevents him or her from getting here, but sometimes I never do hear from them again. And in the meantime, other customers who are asking about the item end up moving on when the chair or art or garden statue or whatever isn’t immediately available.  So without a deposit, I’ll now have to implement a First Come, First Served policy. 

Shipping & Delivery:  Free local pickup.  We can deliver within Lewiston-Auburn for a $10.00 delivery fee, or Gray/Portland (along the 202 Route, or just off it) early Wednesday mornings for the same $10.00.  Shipping would be rather expensive for this piece.

For other options, please review our most recent blog on Possible Delivery Options in the Next Week (use the search feature), or our Shipping & Delivery page at

Buying Details:  We are very low tech.  Payment can be made via PayPal, good check (please allow 1 week to clear if not known to us) or cash.
