What to do when you find a cotton bowl in a box

A cotton bowl from the 1950s, with a “pink” box.

Cotton candy Faygo was a confectioner’s dream, with an orange box with a cotton ribbon in it.

In Canada, the box was sold as a “cotton bucket,” which was also called a “nurse’s bucket” and was often filled with cotton.

The Cotton Bowl in Canada (1955) is pictured.

What to do if you find one in your backyard or yardThe cotton bowl was a popular way to keep cotton, yarn and other supplies in the home and garden, even for children.

If you find it in a cardboard box, it’s a good idea to put it back in its original packaging.

It may be easier to just keep the box on a shelf, like a cabinet or dresser.

When you’re finished, take the box out and put it in the garbage.
