About me: Always ahead of the pack and on the trendy edge of thrifting, professional freelance writer Michelle Greysen, now shares her love of thrift! Having had an antique store for many years, Michelle still has many busy online antique & vintage shops, blogs about antiques and lifestyle, offers estate clearing services and shares with readers her love of all things thrifty! When she is not distracted with Thrifty Diversions she is a professional freelance writer, blogging, publishing, working on a book or two and generally staying out of trouble (and thrift stores).
My collections: Welcome through my front door here at Thrifty Diversions and onto discovering my mall of e-shops, my blogs, my vintage treasure hunting and my joy of writing about it all!
Many of you have followed me over the years. First as customers in my antique store, Inktiques, and then onto my blogs and into my now five and counting online stores full of vintage treasures. What started out as my own collecting hobby, grew into a full on store for many years and now continues as a small empire online via my desk. My busy world of professional writing and my busy hobby of a love for antiques and vintage have always crossed over. So much so that my store Inktiques was dedicated to antiques in the ink world! Even though the store is now closed as I moved cities and lifestyles, I am always avidly collecting, writing daily and as thrifty as ever.
My interests: The growth of one online store after another started of course with my love of vintage and collector books and all things collectible in the ink world, Inktiques. Living in wide open spaces brought about my second love of collecting retro vintage from the prairies and my second store evolved, Canadian Prairie Antiques. I have always had a love of vintage clothing and when I opened my own cottage in a small town I also opened another online store of beautiful dress up clothing naming it for my LandLocked Cottage. Naturally a crafter and quilter myself I couldn’t not collect all things vintage in the crafting sewing world to share with you all and that is how my fourth store came about, Writers Craft Too. Thrifty Diversion shop became a collection of funky mid century mod kitschy retro and now DearNellie Stationery brings collections of vintage inspired and artisanal ephemera.
Now it is time to rein it under one (web) roof and give the shops a friendly front door to pass through on your way into discovering all that I find and share when I step away from writing and head out for some Thrifty Diversions! I look forward to sharing my great finds, my knowledge as an avid collector and dealer and my adventures at estate clearing. The most exciting news is of course it was only a matter of time before my writing and my picking crashed together into a future book on the thrifting lifestyle now in the works.

Shipping Policy: Buyer PAYS the SHIPPING cost. I ship on Wednesdays of each week.
PLEASE email me to gladly reserve an item while I quickly get you a shipping quote or figure out a volume discount rate - then only one paypal transaction is necessary (if you do purchase without a shipping amount that is fine but then you will need to complete a second shipping payment following the quote) - sorry but with such a variety of items and multiple buys the quotes are specific to the unique order and each customer so impossible to pre-determine - it may take a little longer but it is to find you the best (multiple buy) shipping rates.
Refunds and Exchanges: I do not clean or repair - all vintage authentic and sold as I find them - lovely!
As I offer vintage merchandise all sales are final but if you are not happy please contact me.
Return Policy: As I offer vintage merchandise all sales are final but if you are not happy please contact me.
