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.
