Because newer isn’t always better.

Despite being Ikea’s #1 fans, we get that sometimes you just need a piece with a little bit of old-school character (sorry, Frakta). Antiquing can be unreliable and expensive—plus, you can’t do it in pajamas from the comfort of your sofa. Enter: Etsy, whose online marketplace has hundreds of vintage shops brimming with unique finds to take home. To narrow down your search, we scoured the site for some of the stand-out Etsy shops specializing in vintage pieces.
For the fashion lover: Millpondvintage has several vintage art collections, but the fashion shop in particular is worth checking out. There’s everything from retro fashion prints to Vogue covers from the early 1900s.
Specializing in vintage finds sourced mainly from French flea markets, ChaseVintage has gorgeous accent pieces for your home. Add a European flair to your space with rustic wood cabinets and wire-frame baskets—a chic twist on today’s ever-popular straw baskets.
For an Etsy shop that combines the charm of vintage pieces with the cleaner look of more modern ones, try GlitteryMoonVintage. Most of the items have a chic brass or clean white finish and will fit seamlessly in with a more contemporary style.
Mamakea features an eclectic line of home goods, ranging from woven vases to bohemian planters to a pair of brass gold pheasants (you know, the essentials).
Calling all creatives: Georgia-based Etsy shop AllegriaCollection has a slew of accent pieces they recommend using as props for all your film and photography needs. The shop’s constantly-changing inventory offers a wide variety of decor styles to accommodate any aesthetic.
To find a larger vintage piece—such as a piano bench from the early 1900s or a country-style wooden kitchen stool from the 1800s— head to Goseek. The items are all affordable and you’re sure to find something to suit your personal style.
TheBlueTwig’s Virginia Kemp started by scouring New England flea markets for wall art to outfit her own home before turning her hobby into a business on Etsy. You’ll find a carefully-curated collection of unique art prints on her store ranging from photography to abstract art.
