Lately, my husband and I have been considering opening an etsy store for vintage housewares and refurbished furniture. I regularly come across beautiful pieces that I have to pass up because we have no place to put them all. An etsy store would definitely allow me to feed my addiction and make a little money at the same time. But — let’s be honest — vintage shops on etsy are plentiful, and it can be hard to stand out in the crowd. So I’ve been doing a lot of research and looking into shops with great collections. And among those, I am a big fan of Seesaw Vintage.
The shop is run by Angela Hardison, Raquel Raney and Lindsay Tingstrom, otherwise known as the ladies of Seesaw Designs, a creative studio in Scottsdale, AZ. Given our common graphic design background, they are women after my own heart, and that would probably explain why I am in love with their impeccable taste in vintage ephemera. They have a truly discerning eye (eyes?), and I find myself wanting to favorite every other item.
Here are some of my favorites from their shop:
1. Vintage Smocked Gingham Round Pillow ($24) 2. Vintage 50’s Riihimaki Riihimaen Cream/Sugar Pair ($20) 3. Vintage Triangle Midcentury Candle Holder ($18) 4. Vintage Sugar Jar ($26) 5. Vintage Catherineholm Fondue Pot – Lotus Pattern in orange ($38) 6. Vintage Brass Flying Bird Hook ($20)
And if you needed further evidence of their great taste, here are some photos of their studio space. Loves it!
