“Thrifty & Vintage Finds” Link Party #64 — Vintage Tape Tin

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 I’d love you to link up! You might get featured next week!

I hope you’ll enjoy my latest finds.

Tag sales are now often starting on Fridays here, and I drove to one nearby last Friday. It was a sale at a local lake house with several vendors, and I found some fun things!

I already have two of these brown bottles, and this one is joining them on our bookshelf.

Should I keep this vintage tape tin, or sell it?

This dish I’m keeping — it makes such a sweet soap dish.

017aThe big picture isn’t vintage, but it totally fits our cottage style. I don’t have space for it in our kitchen, but I think I’m going to hang it over our bed. We have a new king bed and no artwork over it yet.


On my way home, I stopped by another small tag sale and totally scored: a set of vintage postcards for 50 cents! Three of them are of of the Apollo 11 moon landing from 1969 — and I can’t wait to surprise my friend who is a huge NASA fan with them.

And today I went to the first day of the huge rummage sale in Katonah that’s going on all week.

I bought a vintage sled for $3; a soccer ball, baseball helmet, and ice skates for Landon for $1 each; and several other fun items I didn’t have time to photograph yet. I just love finding these kinds of deals.

It was really hard to decide who to feature from last week! Thank you all for linking up!

This week I’m featuring Jill from Jill Ruth and Co., a new blog to me. She found some really fun items that would have caught my attention as well. My favorite of her finds is this mason jar full of button:

Check out her amazing sewing room full of vintage treasures!

If you have an extra glass jar, why not upcycle it and make this? I made it the other day in minutes with a postcard, some marbles, and a tealight.

What would you call this: DIY glass jar lantern?

Thank you for linking up, Jill! Feel free to add this button to your post or blog if you like.

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…

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.

Wow, thanks for the feature! I’m honored! I think I may need to go dig out some of my postcards now. That’s a cute idea with your lantern. :)

Love all of your finds, Dagmar, especially the “soap dish” and the table cloth. That picture will look lovely over your bed. Thanks for hosting!
