Sonya-Dime Store Thrift

Oh...My...Goodness! I seriously can't stop thinking about these tapes. And now need to focus on having some land in my path while thrifting!! Yay for that collection, how fun!


I remember those. We used to spell out names with the tape and make designs on top of the gifts. Are the tapes still sticky?

One of the things I love about your blog is the memories it brings back. I haven't thought about that tape in f o r e v e r!
Fun collection,


Oh Laurie, I remember those tapes,
especially the pattern tape. : )
I remember helping my Mom wrapping
packages and that tape really did
stick well. I miss the metal
I just remembered a certain pattern
of holiday tape. It had a white
background with little snowmen on
it and it was my favorite.
Thank you for the memories.
Please show us your collection of
vintage barrettes, holiday pins,
and/or vintage decals.


Hi Laurie, oops....I see that you
already showed your vintage
hair clips. : )

I don't remember this tape as kid but I am definitely wishing for some of that snowflake tape. I always try to picture the person whose job it was to design the graphics to go on Scotch tape -- sounds like fun to me.

I don't remember tape coming in metal containers. How cute! I bet they made the tedious job of wrapping packages alot more fun!

I think this tops everything!!

The irony is, I was just thinking of an old tape commercial, back in the late 70s, early 80s. It was an invisible man who showed up this new scotch tape that goes on invisible, so you can't see it. Do you remember that commercial?


I love this! You collect the weirdest stuff that i would never think to collect! LOL! WHere the heck do you find stuff like scotch tape? The estate sales in this area never have good old junk. I'm thinking the family must toss it all in the trash before the sale.


You know I collect both the Christmas tapes and the christmas hook boxes! We must be long lost twins! Love the LePage's with Santa, I've never seen those before!!!!


Some of the best collecting. And very interesting at that. Oh how I wish I would have been a saver 20 years ago. But it is never too late to start re-collecting.
May your Holidays be as bright as your Blog personality.


i also wanna say that i love that big jar! You just find the coolest stuff :)
