Vintage String Dispensers

I have a couple of vintage string dispensers that I keep in my craft area for baker’s twine or string. They are a cool little way to display a string supply and they make me happy. They are pretty easy and inexpensive to find at flea markets and on Ebay or Etsy. Mine were about $10. If you do a quick search on vintage string holders there are some really cool options, here are a couple of my favorites.


A. Cast Iron string dispenser. Never have to spend the 3 seconds looking for the end of the string again. Think of the time you will save! You life is about to change.
B. Vintage Wooden String Holders. These aren’t real practical but I want to put them in a glass vase on my desk.
C. This gorgeous brown paper /string combo is amazing. I’ve never seen one like this before, but it is perfect.

    I love B., they look so rustic and old school! They remind me of old kite handlers.

    Yes! I remember my great-grandma always had a supply of twine and brown paper, and used it to wrap everything from winter clothes to Christmas gifts. That dispenser is an amazing find!

    Oh what I would do with that supply of craft paper and twine. A girl can dream right?

    I also love the vintage paper cutter. I think it would be very useful if you had a lot of things to wrap and ship. Wonder what sort of shop it came from?

    C. Is gorgey! I wish I could have that too! I also wish I had the space for it.
