The Gift of Thrift: All in the Tin


This Gift of Thrift found at a thrift shop for $1 was just begging to be gifted. All I had to do was fill this made-in-England-for-Hallmark container with some cinnamon stars and gumdrop bars, tie a bow on its top, and it was ready to go!

  1. Absolutely made to be gifted :) And prettier than a dollar-store bag for sure.

  2. I'm out of town and headed for a thrift store this morning. Tins of homemade cookies would be a perfect addition to the baskets I'm giving to family this year. Thanks for the suggestion!

  3. Did this for years (before everyone was on special diets) but never found such a beauty! :)

  4. Recipe for the gum drop bars???? They sound delicious. I have a huge collection of tins. It's probably time I part with some of them...
