Thrifty & Vintage Finds Link Party, Dagmar's Home

Welcome to “Thrifty & Vintage Finds” link party No. 113!

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.

On the way to Richfield, CT, I saw several signs for tag sales on Saturday. Landon and I drove there to meet Don at the house he’s currently renovating. I love to see the work in progress and like to imagine what I would do with the properties.

I’ve clearly seen too many Fixer Upper shows — I would love to jump in and do that kind of work. Maybe one day.

After Don gave me the tour of what they are working on, he took L with him to fix something at his sister’s house afterward, which gave me time to drive back to one of the sales.

It happened to be the yearly barn sale of a little museum right on the main street of Richfield.

I bought these six items:

Vintage Bird House

The little hand-painted wooden box is for needles, and I added it to my strawberry-themed corner in the kitchen.

The $1 tin container is now sitting on our mantel, holding the little vintage bird house and dried hydrangeas I dried last year.

I paid $7 for all of these items, which was a pretty great deal.

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

I decided to feature Diana again, who blogs at Adirondack Girl at Heart. She found so many amazing items again, and sells many of them in her Etsy store.

This souvenir paperweight from Torquay, England, was my favorite of her finds – it’s so unique, and I love the wood.

Thanks for linking up again, Diana! Feel free to add this button to your post or blog if you like, and I hope you’ll link up again.

Hi Dagmar,
I’m visiting for the first time. Glad to be here. I love strolling the aisles of a good flea market. I find so many items to take home and repurpose, make over and transform! I’m sharing my industrial stool makeover at your party. Thanks!

I think it was $7 well spent. I really like the Dumbo graphics and the little green boxes. Have a great week.
