“Thrifty & Vintage Finds” Link Party #128 – West End Garage

by Dagmar Bleasdale on July 26, 2016

West End Garage, Cape MayWelcome to “Thrifty & Vintage Finds” Link Party No. 128

Greetings from beautiful Cape May! We are spending a few days here with family, like we do most years in the summer.

Grandma rents a big house two blocks away from the beach, and the whole Bleasdale Clan comes and goes as they have time.

This year, the teenage girls all brought their boyfriends, so the group is expanding again. The house is full, and the teenagers will be camping out in the backyard.

While Don and Landon enjoyed the ocean — L wants to stay in the water for hours — I usually explore Cape May. I like just walking around town, and the West End Garage is always on my wish list.

West End Garage, Cape May

I visited it today and came home with – nothing. There were a few items I liked, but they were nothing I couldn’t live without and cost more than I wanted to pay.

I did have my eye on this gray cat pitcher, but decided not to buy it.

Did you buy something fun lately?

If you found an amazing deal lately, a vintage or thrifty find, then I’d love you to link up. You could get featured next week.

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

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

I decided to feature Rita, who blogs at Panoply. She found a lot of amazing vintage items again, and this one was my favorite: the framed cross stitch sign.

I started to collect them and hung two outside of our bedroom, and I would have picked up this one as well.

I love the illustrations in vintage kids books and can not pass them up either. I’ve collected about 40 or so myself.

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

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.

What a great place. I have not been to Cape May but looks like a great place for me to visit when I go back up north to visit my family. Have a great week.

Thank you Dagmar. I love the name of that antique store. Too bad the prices weren’t great.
