Thrifty & Vintage Finds Link Party, Dagmar's Home

Welcome to “Thrifty & Vintage Finds” link party No. 103!

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 also feature DIY posts if you transformed something that was originally a thrifty or vintage find.

I had time to check out the Katonah Thrift Store the other day, and found a few goodies!

I picked up this pretty vintage plate made in France.

I try to stay away from buying more dishes, because I already have so many, but this plate was in perfect condition.

It cost $3, more than what I would usually pay for one plate, but I can’t pass up a vintage plate with dainty flowers.

I also bought this tiny pitcher, for 50 cents. I’m going to add it to my collection.

For another 50 cents, I also picked up this wooden planter box. It’s a perfect canvas for a painting project. I’ll probably whitewash it eventually, or add a stencil to it.

For now I’m using the box to hold some of my vintage plates on our new shelf/table in the kitchen.

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

I decided to feature Donna, who blogs at Distressed Donna Down Home. Among many other fabulous things, she found this large crock.

I have my own collection of them, and Donna made me laugh out loud when she wrote: “Picture me rolling this across the floor at Goodwill to checkout.” I’ve been there :)

Thanks for linking up again, Donna! I also had an old Blazer years ago, BTW, and my 18-year-old Honda CRV finally retired last year. I love those workhorses — they are perfect for hauling all of our thrifty finds!

Feel free to add this button to your post or blog if you like.

I agree with Rita! Looks great! I am always drawn to plates, but have yet to purchase any. I’d like to create an area in my dining room like in your photo, but its currently full of empty boxes for my eBay side hustle. Maybe I can make room if I can get more organized! :) Thanks for the inspiration!

Love your tiny creamer, Dagmar, but the entire vignette looks great. I’ll be around, and will join the party once I have something worthwhile to add to the mix. :) Thanks for continuing to host.
