Hey guys! I’m back with the second You Can Afford it Friday round-up with vintage art under $50. Vintage pieces don’t have to cost an arm and a leg, and they look great mixed in with more modern pieces. I like to buy stuff that already has a beautiful frame, but sometimes throwing a vintage piece in a newer, modern frame can help it fit in with the rest of your collection.

[1] Floral needlepoint, $46 [2] Landscape needlepoint (comes with another piece), $18 [3] Daisies on wood (wallpaper not included), $6 [4] Flax lithograph, $22 [5] English greeting card, $12 [6] Chromolithographic plate of grass plants, $18  [7] Painted ceramic of Italy, $13 [8] Henri Rousseau book plate, $5 [9] Oil still life, $49
