Dagmar's Home "Thrifty & Vintage Finds" Link Party

Welcome to the next “Thrifty & Vintage Finds” link party!

If you found an amazing deal lately, new or vintage, then play along and link up!

This week I’m featuring sweet Kelly from This Old Colonial Home, who I actually met first through Twitter and then in real live at the HGTV Bloggers Block party. She is a doll and I’m thrilled she linked up last week.

She bought a mirror for $20 at an estate sale and painted it a distressed white. It now hangs in her entryway.

I’m so excited to show you my thrifty and vintage finds from our Cape May vacation!

Remember that I told you about my new favorite place in Cape May? The West End Garage is a huge place with many different vendors, similar to the Newburgh Vintage Emporium where I have my booth.

West End Garage, Cape May, NJI’ll have to write a whole blog post about how wonderful this pace is — there were so many things I would have loved to bring home.

I ended up buying these items, and they are already in my booth at the Emporium: this metal box full of vintage buttons. I got a great deal on it, so it made sense to buy it for my booth. If it doesn’t sell, I’m not one bit sad — those buttons would be great for all kinds of DIY projects.

I also bought this big, vintage pulley. Pulleys add a rustic touch to your home and are another thing that’s been popular for a while, so I don’t think this one will be in my booth for long.

This vase was another cool find: it was made in the old East Germany! So it has some interesting history.

If you’re ever interested in something I’m showing you here, let me know so I can let you know the price and shipping costs.

Have you picked up a thrifty or vintage find lately? I’d love to see it!

And after you link up, share this party for more exposure for all of us. The bigger the party, the better.

So I checked out the West End Garage when I was in Cape May last week. It was very cool. They had a lot of fun items – like a chandelier made out of door hardware! (I posted a pic on Instagram.) My only complaint is their prices are bit steep, but I was inspired nonetheless.

Hi Kelly, I’m so glad you got to check it out! I was very picky there and just bought a few items that I thought were a good deal. Everything in my favorite booth was overpriced. :(

Thank you so much for featuring me, Dagmar!

I never even knew about The West End Garage in Cape May. I will definitely check this place out when I’m down there in a few weeks!! Can’t wait!
