Keeping it Old School: Vintage Finds from Sweetshorn


Lately, I’ve been obsessing over all things vintage. There’s something about objects that have stood the test of time that is just incredibly appealing to me. I’m not sure I can pull together classy vintage fashion looks, but I ‘m fairly certain I can make a home sing with vintage pieces. I got lucky at the thrift store this past weekend and walked away with an old iron birdcage and a bronze owl figurine (both of which I spray painted red) for just $2.50. I’m not sure of their origins, but I know I can feed my vintage cravings in Etsy seller Sweetshorn’s shop. It is filled with fabulous retro housewares, decor and more.

Among my favorite finds? A green Mikasa creamer vase, a pair of white ceramic quails and a hot pink needlepoint pillow. Even I can’t figure out why I’m attracted to that pillow, but I can see it making a real splash on a deep gray couch or paired with soft pink bedding. And the best thing about Sweetshorn’s shop? Everything is extremely affordable, with prices starting at just $12. There are a couple of exceptions, like this $699 Arne Jacobsen stainless steel tea set, which is one of the first few made in 1967 and totally worth the price if you’re a collector.

Why It’s Green:

  • All items are vintage

Price: $12-699 for a wide variety of items. Vast majority are under $60.
