About Adirondack Girl @ Heart

Welcome to Adirondack Girl @ Heart! I’m so glad you’ve come for a visit. If you love vintage and antiques, like I do, then you’ve definitely come to the right place.

I’m all about buying and selling anything old and beautiful, and I love sharing my knowledge and experience with other antique sellers.

Let Me Introduce Myself

Diana and a friend at the Country Living FairI’m Diana (on the right), and I live in upstate New York, right near the Adirondack Mountains. I love nature, being out in the woods, and paddling my kayak–hence the name, Adirondack Girl. But the passion that I write about here on the blog is my love buying, selling, and collecting vintage and antiques.

My 20+ years in the business have enabled me to provide valuable information to help readers make informed decisions when buying and/or selling their own vintage and antiques. I post weekly on the topic and have written two eBooks: 25 Vintage Items Often Overlooked & Undervalued at Garage Sales and What to Sell on eBay.

Vintage & Antique Finds

I showcase the objects I purchase during my various vintage excursions to garage and estate sales, flea markets, and thrift shops, and provide the low-down on what I paid for each item, along with a suggested retail value. 

You can locate all my vintage finds posts here.

  2. Shaker Heritage Society: As a vendor at the Shaker Heritage Society gift shop, I sell vintage, Shaker-related projects–signs, magnets, watercolors, and more, many of which I’ve written blog posts about. I also sell vintage projects at their annual, 2-month long Christmas show.

My Sidekick

Diana and her husband in Paris with the Eiffel tower in the backgroundOne day I hit a fabulous garage sale and my husband happened to be with me. I filled his arms with treasures; he paid for and delivered them to the van. Back and forth he went.

Later on, I called him my “good luck charm,” and he beamed at me. I had literally made his day. Up to that point, I had primarily attended sales by myself or with girlfriends, but after our lucky day together, he became my regular “side kick.” He’s the best.
