Thrifty Love {link party #25}

Friday, April 20, 2012

Last week I asked for your thoughts on gifts from the thrift store. Those that answered seemed to not care if a gift was bought at a thrift store or not. That's great! Love it!

This week I ask, if you sell your thrifted goodies, ebay or etsy, which do you prefer? I am just getting started over at etsy for my thrifty things but am wondering if I should be doing ebay instead. I like how they do auction and you can list low and let it climb. I do not like the thought of things just sitting there in an online shop therefore also just sitting in my home taking up space. Yikes space, who has enough of that?

I want to share something with you before we get to more Thrifty Love. I know some of you are new around here and may not know that I have partnered with Worthy of the Prize (WOTP) in their effort to help adopting families raise money for their adoption. With the purchase of each Chosen necklace I donate $10. WOTP also donates the entire proceeds from their chosen fit band! I'm telling you this cause our current family's month is almost up. You can help them rescue their child by purchasing these products. If you don't have funds to make a purchase right now you can also help them without spending any money at all! Simply follow Worthy of the Prize's blog. If they reach 530 before the month is up they will double their funds that the family has earned this month! They are at 512 at time of writing this post. It's one simple way to help a child longing for a family!

Now for those Thrifty Love features!
Helen and her Daughters shares these lovely pieces
and many other vintage goodies too.

Life on the Rock shares this peculiar Sesame Street record
that looks a lot like It's a small world to me. She also shares some
thoughts on ebay vs etsy in the comments of that post.

Charming Zebra shares this beauty! Is it great or what?

Now here are some of my goodies which by the way are listed in my etsy vintage shop. And more items being added soon but I must say that shipping is a killer! UGH!

How fun is this vintage daisy tea set?

Vintage Hallmark cup for Mom. May be perfect for Mother's day!

And a vintage Peanuts Gang coffee cup with a baseball theme.

Show us whatcha got!

  1. Hey! Thanks so much for linking my last thirft post. Im glad I could help you out with my Etsy vs. Ebay info :)

  2. Thanks so much for featuring my vintage typewriter. It's receiving a lot of attention at our house. My kids keep playing with it. (And they're all teenagers.)

    I love your daisy tea set. It's so unique and cute!

  3. Hi Hope you're having a nice weekend. I have sold mostly on ETSY and I like it maybe because I'm so used to using it. Etsy for some reason is so much cuter and I feel like I really have my own shop. My items have been selling, just mostly have to be patient. I have used Ebay (auction) once for what I knew was a very rare item and it did real well. I need to use Ebay more to get over the learning curve of using it so I can list faster. Some items i don't want to list on EBAY because there are multiples of the item so sometimes on certain items I think they would get lost. So simply put EBAY auction for rare high demand items-

  4. Thanks for hosting. I haven't tried either but I know several of my blogging friends sell on Etsy.

  5. That retro teaset is awesome! it is so much fun! Thank you for sharing with us at TTF. Have a great day!

  6. That tea set is fabulous!!! Great find! I have no advice on eBay vs. Etsy as I've only sold on Etsy, but I've really enjoyed it so far. It just takes some time to build a clientel with Etsy. I am heading over now to follow Worthy of the Prize! ~Heather
