“Thrifty & Vintage Finds” Link Party 86 – Vintage Shoe Molds

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

Welcome to “Thrifty & Vintage Finds” link party No. 86!

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!

This weekend, my sister-in-law and I took a trip to Pennsylvania, and I got to go thrifting at an amazing place! I can’t tell you where yet, but I’ll write about it soon.

I left with so many thrifty and vintage finds!

Can you guess which item caught my attention in this tray?


Yes, that little silver cup with the word Bremen on it. I so often come across vintage items like this postcard from my German hometown, it’s spooky.

Vintage Shoe Molds

You wouldn’t believe the price on these pairs of wooden vintage shoe molds. I bought them all, five pairs. I haven’t decided yet if I’ll add a couple to my Etsy store or use them all for decor in our cottage.

And there was just something that drew me to those vintage keyhole plates that I want to add to a furniture piece.

I’m adding those brown bottles to my collection, and the mason jars were so affordable that I bought a whole bunch to add to my other ones.

Which one of these items would have been your favorite?

Did you show off your latest find last week? If you linked up, thank you!

Thanks so much of all of your wonderful entries again! I had a really hard time to pick just one featured blog again. Sadly, a few blogs I would have liked to feature didn’t link back to this post.

I decided to feature Diana, who blogs at Adirondack Girl at Heart. She showed off her latest vintage finds, and I just LOVE this lamp!

Thanks for linking up again, Diana! I’m interested in this lamp. I don’t see a cord, does it have one? Feel free to add this button to your post or blog if you like.

If you weren’t featured this week but would like to be, just link up the same post again, and any new ones.

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 more exposure for all of us.

I found a great idea for the watches from another blogger but can’t remember which one. She makes the old watches into bracelets by taking glueing a vintage rhinestone earring ( with the clip back taken off) They look so cute. I have also taken the insides out of watches and put crystals or little charms inside and then putting the back on. This is simalar to the charm lockets that are popular right now. I actually put my grandkids birthstone colored crystals in mine. Hope this gives you some ideas. I love you blog!

Hi Sheryl, thanks for your comment and all of those fab ideas. Guess what – one of the watches works just fine! I would it up, and it fits my small wrist just perfectly. I now wear it all the time!

Such great finds this week, Dagmar. Those shoe forms–amazing! And I love the vintage price tags, too. I’ve never found any, but would love some. Thanks for featuring MY finds :) Yes, there’s a plug–

I love all your finds. I think my favorites are the shoe molds! Thank you Dagmar for hosting!

What an amazing ” haul ” – wow
Thanks so much for the party :)

Lots of great finds! Love the Christmas ornament and paper ephemera.


Barb October 6, 2015 at 10:25 AM

Love your Christmas ornament!!! One of my favorite books is a volume on old ornaments. Look this up, you might be surprised! My favorite find while “junking’ on a Saturday morn. was a silver glass blown mushroom. I felt the same way, how did it make it all these years. If things could talk! Can’t wait to hear your Pa. story!


Rita C at Panoply October 6, 2015 at 7:06 AM

Okay, Dagmar, I don’t anything can top your find of the Bremen cups – I would’ve been so excited too! What great little tokens of ‘home’ when you come upon them. And those shoe forms are pretty awesome too. Thanks for hosting us.


Dagmar Bleasdale October 6, 2015 at 10:18 AM

Oh, I haven’t even shown you my biggest find yet! It didn’t fit into the picture :) It’s coming!
