TEA TINS DISPLAYED: The Sutliff Museum, located on the second floor of the Warren-Trumbull County Public Library, is currently showing a display of new and old tea tins. The term “tea tin” is a misnomer because tea containers can be ceramic, wood, cardboard or metal or tin. The oldest tins in the collection are from the 1920s and 30s. The museum is open from 2 to 4 p.m. Wednesday to Saturday. Tours may be arranged at other times by calling 330-395-6575. Visit www.sutliffmuseum.org.
