“Thrifty & Vintage Finds” Link Party #62 — Vintage NYC Postcards

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

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

I know, I know, I usually post my Wordless Wednesday post on Tuesdays, but I couldn’t fit that post and this weekly link party in this week, so my “Thrifty and Vintage” link party won out.

If you’ve never been here for it, it’s about time! I hope you’ll enjoy my latest finds — and if you blog about thrifty or vintage finds, I hope you’ll link up. You might get featured next week!

As promised in my post about my visit to the Hasting’s Flea, I’m sharing which vintage items I bought. Did you guess correctly?

The first thing I was intrigued by was this 100-year-old postcard of the Brooklyn Bridge.

Vintage NYC Postcards

Vintage NYC Postcard. DagmarBleasdale.comI love the colors and actually bought five of these postcards for $10. One is of the Columbia University. I got it for Don because his father went there.

The next thing I found were these German brass tacks for $4.

007bThe vendor didn’t know what they are, but Don took one look at them and told be they are used in carpentry. What’s the chance of that!

If you are taking off doors or windows, you’d put one tack on the door or window, and the corresponding number on the frame to keep track of them.

My last fun find: you didn’t think I’d pass up these vintage linen dish towels! I paid $5 for them.

024bThey look so cute in our farmhouse kitchen!

Thanks for everyone who linked up last week!

This week I’m featuring Two Plus Cute. She loves books and found a whole bunch of them:

thrifty find: books

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 lovely if you would share this party — pin, stumble, tweet away! The bigger the party, the better.

I can’t wait to see your finds! For now I’m off to print out 10 pictures of L for his timeline project…

  • Link up posts about your thrifty or/and vintage find.

Omgomg I got featured! Thank you.

To be honest I never thought anybody would feature a book post so I never added a party link. *guilt ridden*

I go add the feature button asap and can’t wait to see all today’s link ups. :D
