The Vintage Home

For a long time I only really thought of Etsy as being a place for handmade goods, even though I sell some vintage items myself. Recently I've been discovering a lot of really great vintage shops with fair prices, so I thought I'd share a few of them here. Most of the shops specialize in housewares and home decor (there are of course also a lot of shops that sell vintage clothing and shoes, but personally I find the fit and feel of the fabric is too important to order something over the internet, especially when it can't be returned....) Ok, here goes:

Located in Detroit, Bright Wall Vintage has a lot of great mid-century pieces at nice prices.

Good Vintage has nice kitsch and home decor pieces and currently has a lot on sale.

Little Byrd Vintage is located in Portland, Oregon where my sister lived for six years. She's the one who told me about the friendly, good-hearted Spirit of the Pacific Northwest and this seller must have it because she is currently donating 20% of all profits to the Oregon Food Bank.

Located just a few hours north of Portland in Seattle, Lil Thrifty Girl has a lot of items on holiday special. She has cute stuff but for some reason only nine sales, so let's get her some business!

Another shop located in the Pacific Northwest is Modish Vintage. I love, love, love, love pretty much everything they have. Did I mention love?

Though I don't (yet) own any, there is something about the eerie milky greenness of Jadite that I love. Luckily for me, there is the shop in Allentown, Pennsylvania Jadite Kate. The shop prices are a little bit high and if you want something very basic like a teacup or a serving bowl you might find it cheaper in another shop. But the pieces she does have are truly unique and well worth the price. Plus, the shop is just so darn pretty. I can't get enough of it!
