The Best Vintage Finds Online Right Now Wit & Delight

They say you have to really learn to love the hunt in order to enjoy finding secondhand decor for your home. Shopping for that one-of-a-kind piece from the comfort of your couch is a rather new phenomenon and really, it’s never been easier to find treasures without diving into dusty bins of junk. You just need to know where to look and what to search for.

I often do my searching when I need a five-minute break of mindless work. I keep a list of what I’m looking for on hand, filled with items jotted down after seeing an inspiring space on Pinterest or Instagram. When I go to search, I’m typing in things like clay earthenware from Mexico (I can’t get over this one), Brutalist furniture, Danish lamps, vintage photography, sets of chairs, travertine tables, and the list goes on. 

My point is this: Don’t give up, get in there, and scroll, scroll, scroll. To get you started, here are some special gems I’ve found recently, all of which I WISH I had room for in my own home.

    The very first product you feature here seems to be a new item, not vintage. It’s the only item that seller has available, and they’ve sold two identical ones: https://www.etsy.com/shop/simplySUEL/sold

    Almost certainly not secondhand.

      Melissa, thank you for pointing this out! This is a good point. We missed that when putting everything together and have removed the first product from the post.
