“Thrifty & Vintage Finds” Link Party #50

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

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

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

Welcome to party #50!

Since there were only DIY entries on the last party, I’m featuring someone else who linked up to party #48 who found something vintage or thrifty.

I’m featuring Diana, who writes Adirondack Girl @ Heart. I’m so envious of her thrifty finds!

Say hello to a $2 stained glass window…

…and four tins full of buttons for $4:

I have been looking for two stained glass windows since we moved into the Blue Cottage because I want to hang them on our porch. And you know how much I love vintage buttons. Four dollars for four tins is an amazing deal.

Thanks for linking up again, Diana, I love seeing your finds!

I found my latest vintage finds at the Newburgh Vintage Emporium.

After thinking about it long and hard, I decided to give up my booth there because I just don’t have time to drive there all the time. It’s a 1 1/2 hour drive and I can’t count the times I’ve raced back from the Emporium, trying to make it in time to get L off the bus. And I didn’t find the time to paint furniture as much as I thought I would.

2015 will be the year I’m working smarter, and this was the right decision in the right direction. I’m looking forward to more time for blogging and am even open to other job opportunities.

I will be posting the items I had in the booth in my Etsy store, and I already started.

So I finally got to be a customer at the Emporium and bought a bunch of vintage Valentines and vintage photos.

I looked through a whole stack of them and bought the ones that spoke to me.

Your turn! If you’ve picked up a thrifty or vintage find lately, I’d love to see it!

I’m thrilled about any link, but if you want to get featured, please only link up thrifty or vintage finds, and link back to this post. I also feature DIY posts if you transformed something that was originally a thrifty or vintage find.

And after you link up, it would be great if you share this party for more exposure. The bigger the party, the better.

How to link up:

  • Link up posts about your thrifty or/and vintage find.
  • Please add the party button to your post {see code below} or a link back to this link party post so others can be inspired to join in the fun. Only posts with a link to this party will be considered to be featured.
  • No links to giveaways, or shop or Etsy sites please.
  • By submitting a link you are authorizing for your project to be featured. Featured links will include a photo and a link back to the originating site.

Thanks so much for the feature, Dagmar–I appreciate it :) An hour and a half is a very long distance to travel. I was in a shop 30 minutes away and I thought that was far! It’s all about balance, isn’t it? I love your valentines, btw, but those photos are awesome, especially the one of the car.

Don’t you just love a beautiful vintage (cheap) find?! Most of the time, my husband does the pickin’ but this past weekend I did a little myself : ) Always amazed at what folks will sell-or better yet-toss it out! Thanks for hosting this party-I love seeing what other people find!

Hi Sue, thank you for coming by! I love showing off my little finds, and I also enjoy seeing what everyone else found.
