I must admit that I am in LOVE with everything vintage these days. I would much rather buy something kitzchy and vintage than new any day. One thing I didn’t realize is that I can find really great online vintage stuff on Etsy. Who knew!
Plus, until May 1-14th, there is a Canada Free Shipping event which gives you free shipping within Canada. We all know that we Canucks rarely, if ever, get free shipping so this is AWESOME. Make sure to check out the Editor’s Picks for this event. There is tons of amazing stuff from Canadian vendors across all of the Etsy departments.
However, we are here to talk about VINTAGE. Cambridge Dictionary says that vintage means “of high quality and lasting value, or showing the best and most typicalcharacteristics of a particular type of thing, especially from the past”. Many people think of Etsy only for handmade items but they are also a great place to find vintage items.
Here are some of my favourites and they ALL fall under the Canada Free Shipping event!
Vintage Northern Electric Baby Champ Mid Century Radio – I have something for vintage radios. This one is lovely and would look great at the lake on a dresser!
Vintage Chair by Canadian Office & School Furniture – This chair is as cute as a button and it is listed at a GREAT PRICE.
Vintage Beehive Pitcher, Smokey Black Blown Glass Jug– This pitcher is gorgeous! I’m not sure if I would use it for a pitcher of cocktails or to hold flowers.
Vintage Bar Tools – No Mid Century Modern bar is complete without vintage bar tools like these!
Vintage Cake Plate – I *may* have a bit of a thing for metal cake plates. I currently have 2 and I have to sit on my hands to keep from buying more. I love that this one is a bit of both worlds. It has a metal top with a cut glass base.
Metal Floral Drink tray – I love the look of this tray and how each of the drinks spots are recessed. This makes it perfect for a dresser tray to hold small items.
Cottage Chic Wall Hangings – These pottery wall hangings are amazing. I might need these for the cottage!
Vintage Sterling Amber Ring – 1940s Sterling and Baltic Amber, Large Amber Ring, Size 8 – For those of you that prefer jewelry to home wares, this ring is for you (or maybe me if I beat you to it). It is GORGEOUS!
Vintage Sterling Labradorite Ring – Last but not least, look at this amazing ring. I will be checking my ring size because this may need to be mine.
