Vintage Deal of the Day: November 7, 2009




{Mail off a delightfully pretty hello note to a dear friend or loved one with a postcard from this elegant set, complete with its own charming metal tin, of 18 cards (three each of six designs) featuring Victorian inspired images of birds and flowers. What could be more pleasant, especially as the chilly “indoor” weather sets in, than spending a few moments now and then to correspond the old fashioned way with someone near and dear to you via one of these gorgeous cards? Set of 18 “Birds & Blooms Pink Postcard Tin” set currently on sale for $12.80 (US), from Plasticland.}


Like most of us, I have my very favourite – call them “tried and true” – vintage sources that I turn to time and time again, both for use in my posts and for my own personal collection, of which etsy is most definitely one such site. A number of my “Daily Deals” posts have featured etsy pieces, and I have no doubt that oodles of future ones will as well (etsy is, after all, entirely fabulous!), but I’d like to feature items in my “bargain finds” posts from an assortment of other sources as well.

The wonderful postcards above hail from Plasticland.com, a site that never cease to put my will power into overdrive, as I cruise its pages resisting the urge at every turn to order a little something for myself. In general Plasticland’s prices are fairly reasonable and their sale section can really be a good place to score a deal (the same is true of ModCloth.com).

I’m curious though as to what some of your favourite online sources for a stellar bargain are? No matter how large or small the site, if you think it’s a great place to score a deal on a vintage (or vintage looking) piece, I’d love to hear about it!

  3. Actually I never really shop vintage online. But now I see what kind of treasures you find I think I might need to reconsider and start browsing around! :-)

    Hope you'll have a wonderful sunday.

  8. Oh no! I have such an awful weakness for lovely notecards. I'm looking although I need to be buying gifts for others about now!!

    For deals, I like the Victoria's Secret online shop. I can get some very reasonably priced clothing items (some classic and vintage-style) and the fit is perfect.

  10. @ Emma, you are not alone in that weakness, sweet dear, I have an entire plastic tote bubbling over with adorable/classically pretty notecards and other bits of stationery. Luckily though I do send out a lot of handwritten mail, so over time it will all be but to good use :)

    Many thanks for your suggestion of checking our VS, that's a really good idea. I like a lot of their shoes and agree that their prices can be reasonable. Terrific tip!

    @ Miss Go Lightly, I did have a great weekend, sweetie, thank you for you kind words! I hope yours was fantastic too and that you're having a marvelous week!

    Oodles of hugs & joyful Wednesday wishes to you both!
    ♥ Jessica
