The Best Places to Buy Metal Label Holders and Pulls

The best places to buy metal label holders, pulls, vintage locker tags and numbers to make an ordinary piece look extraordinary.  

I've created many multi-drawer and unique pieces using metal label holders and often get asked where I purchase the products I use.   It may surprise you that a lot of my crafting supplies come from "big box" craft stores and are really affordable.  If I'm in need of something a little more unique, I'll search online or hit up local vintage shops and markets.   

To make it easier for you to create your own unique projects, I've rounded up a list of my favorite places and sources to buy metal label holders, pulls and locker tags.  

The best places to  buy metal label holder, pulls and tags

Michael's carries two label holders that I love and use quite often.  The best part?  Both can be bought with their 40% off coupon making them super affordable.

eBay can be hit or miss, but you can find some unique items at very reasonable prices.  I recently purchased a set of these vintage brass locker tags, which were perfect for updating Dollar Tree Storage bins

You have to be careful when shopping for metal label holders and pulls on Etsy.  Some sellers simply resell items that can be purchased from less expensive stores like Amazon, Michael's and Hobby Lobby.  With that being said, there are stores that sell authentic vintage items and one of my favorite shops is A Vintage Parcel!

D.Lawless Hardware metal label holders
D.Lawless Hardware has a great selection of metal label holders and pulls at affordable prices.  You can't beat the price ($0.60 and less!) and quality.

I've used the Antique iron label pulls (usually purchased from Michael's with a 40% off coupon), black bin pulls, antique bronze drawer pulls and the bronze drawer pulls, which I used for my IKEA bookcase hack.

House of Antique Hardware
A little on the pricey side, but if you are looking for larger label holders and pulls, House of Antique Hardware and Signature Hardware have some great options.

Odds & Ends
Along with label holders and drawer pulls, I also use a lot of numbers, tags and other odds and ends in my projects.   Most large craft stores carry Jim Holtz idea-ology, Recollections and Woodpile brand, all of which have a good selection of unique items.  Local vintage markets are also a great place to pick up antique pulls, numbers and locker tags.
