In doing some research for this post, I ran across this:
It's a Tupperware bread box (obviously) and it's called a BreadSmart. It's so retro looking. I've got to have one! But I've only seen them on international Tupperware sites... France, Germany, Belgium. How come we don't get them?? I've seen a couple keychains of them on our eBay. I guess I'll have to save my euros to get one shipped from France.

I love to collect vintage Tupperware catalogs, brochures and postcard invites. It's fun to see things I have and use in my kitchen that women also used years ago. My mom used to have Tupperware parties and we had all sorts of Tupperware in our house. Such a strong childhood memory for me.
Tupperware used to carry the Good Housekeeping Seal. I checked Good Housekeeping's list of products and brands and Tupperware isn't listed. Not sure why. Did you know that if a product carries the Good Housekeeping Seal, Good Housekeeping promises a refund or replacement of a defective product within two years of purchase? I didn't know that. Of course, they have a long list of exclusions, but still a nice thing to know. I guess I've always seen the seal as just their recommendation.
Now this is kind of neat. Cordienne, Tupperware's fancy word for cordkeeper. You still see parts of the cord, but its not a tangled mess of cord. And again with the fancy words... Cordienne, Floralier.
I noticed on the back cover that Tupperware used to be a division of Rexall Drug and Chemical Company, along with West Bend and Duracell. And that Tupperware used to be listed in the Yellow Pages. Nowadays, there are Tupperware kiosks in the mall and virtual Tupperware parties.
