I had blue and white speckled canisters on my kitchen counter for the past several years. Although they were in perfect condtion, when I saw these predominately red ones, I had to have them, as all the of the decorative items in my kitchen are red. I kept them on my wish list and then I purchased them with my 10% off coupon and boy, was I delighted that I did. I love them! They arrived very securely packed so there were no nicks or chips. I get so many compliments on them and they are very useful as well. I use the largest one as a cookie jar. Overstock definitely made me a happy shopper once again!
