Delivering a little VINTAGE LOVE to your inbox!

September Finds

Hey everyone! Welcome to our first Vintage Variety Show! Each month we’ll be sharing some of our vintage home decor finds we’ve gathered all month long from flea markets, yard sales, auctions, and sometimes, the side of the road.

This series will contain pictures of the raw finds, ideas for decorating with them, and sometimes even projects we’ve created or repurposed with our thrifty treasures. Expect lots of vintage eye candy and an inside look into what we do with all of this junk!

Depending on what DIY projects we have planned, we usually have a list of items that we are on the lookout for. Old yard sticks and rulers are almost always on that list. They are so versatile and can be repurposed in a lot of our crafty projects. We can go months and not find any (that are in our price range) but this month we had good luck!

We prefer to pay $1 or less for each of them. Many times we’ll get a big discount if we buy the whole lot. Here are a few ways that we’ve used them in past projects.

We combined an old frame, handles and some yardsticks to create a tray.

Just added some cut yardsticks to the bottom of this old crate.

And this is by far one of my favorite projects that Corey has come up with… this is a new item and will be available at our booth at the Holiday Hobnob Market this year!

I’m kind of obsessed with vintage coolers and thermoses. The hubby picked up the Vagabond version at an auction and I thrifted the mint cooler from a flea market. The larger cooler is great for storing things. We have an old one in our living room that holds my yarn for crochet. The little mint cooler was a cool color and would look great on a shelf in a kitchen.

I love using globes in my home decor. In fact I have a room dedicated to my collection here.

This one has a little damage around the globe seam but I recently saw this on Pinterest and will definitely be using some of my washi tape to repair it. So clever. What doesn’t washi tape fix, really?? Grab some washi tape here. (affiliate link)

She also painted the base and guide which looks so super adorable! Check out the project details here.

Old toy trucks are hard to come by in our thrifty price range. But when we find them, it is such a thrill! As we prepare for our holiday market, we add holiday trees to the truck beds and turn them into holiday decor.

I don’t know what I will do with that vintage camper. It was just too cute to pass up.

I’m always, always on the hunt for cheap furniture flips. This little table fit the bill. Thinking of trying some of Velvet Finishes paint on it soon.

And, finally, here are a few random goods I like to curate. Of course, I love to decorate with little thrifted items around the house. These items are headed to market though.

Pennants (both old and new) are a great way to decorate a boys room. Get the scoop on this room here.
