15 Awesome Vintage Finds from Etsy

Well, I did it again. I’ve been antique shopping on Etsy. It’s an obsession you guys. But in my defense, Etsy is practically the best virtual flea market in the world. Really, it’s like all of the best antiques and unique vintage finds you could ever dream up and you get to shop while sitting in bed wearing your pajamas and drinking coffee. It doesn’t get much better than that, right?! RIGHT. So today I’ve rounded up 15 awesome vintage finds for you. All of them are totally authentic and one of a kind, so if you see something you want, you better snag it fast before it’s gone forever!

Vintage pocket watch

I absolutely adore this small vintage pocket watch! I think this would be so cute sitting on top of a pile of old books or in a small vignette.

I love this set of vintage suitcases, the colors are just perfect! Old suitcase like this can be styled in so many different ways. I especially love them in an entryway or mudroom.


I adore this little vintage ironstone cream pitcher, it dates back to the 1940’s! I think this would be so cute with a single hydrangea or small bundle of flowers, or even just sitting on your kitchen shelves.

If you love unbound vintage books as much as I do, you’ll want to check these our. This set of 10 books is gorgeous and the price isn’t too bad either. This little shop has tons of vintage books!

Vintage french bread board. Amazing farmhouse style kitchen decor.

Looking for a one-of-a-kind bread board from a little bakery in the south of France?! Well set your eyes on these purdy things. I’ve shared them before and I think they are just sooooo dreamy.


Ok, this may very well be the cutest vintage fan I have EVER seen. Seriously, how adorable is this?! I’ve never seen one with a white cage like this and that soft blue color is just so pretty. I think this would be adorable in a little girls room or an office space.

I love these vintage sewing machine drawers. The details on these are just beautiful! I’d definitely paint these and use them to display old books and some greenery.

I think this vintage street sign is so cute and would be fun hanging in a kitchen or even a playroom. This shop has tons of antique street signs.

This vintage typewriter is similar to the one I recently bought (you can see it in this post) and the price is awesome. If you’ve been looking to add an old typewriter to your antique collection, this is definitely one to check out.

Vintage 7 UP crate

I love this vintage 7-up crate! You don’t see a lot of white old crates like this, so this guy is pretty unique.

This antique French market basket with the original wooden handles is soooooo pretty. This could be used year-round and styled in so many fun ways. And TONS of character and history too!

Ok, I may be drooling a little over this vintage fireplace mantel. This thing is so cool! Did you ever see that episode of Fixer Upper where they put a mantel like this on the wall in a bedroom?! SO many fun possibilities with this.

I’m on a roll with the French finds today! This set of wooden spoons is from France and they are seriously calling my name. I’ve always wanted to have a bundle of antique wooden spoons to display in our kitchen.


I found this super pretty vintage ceiling tin and it’s very similar to the one I used to make this DIY coat rack I shared with you guys a few days ago! I love the detailing on this one.

Of course I had to track down a vintage scale. I just couldn’t help it, you guys know I’m obsessed. And I love this little minty green one. So cute and definitely one of a kind!

I could literally go on and on because Etsy is full of some amazing stuff, but I’ll stop here with these 15 items. I hope you found something fun! Or at least enjoyed browsing through my antique finds. Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today, I always appreciate it. I hope you have a FABULOUS holiday weekend! TTFN. (ta-ta for now!)

    I must say your emails make my day and you are truly blessed with a great sense of style I live in a 200 year old cottage in a small Essex village and your posts give me so many ideas.

    Thanks

    Hi Sarah,
    I love all your finds. I actually went to my local Good Will the other week and FOUND the same vintage Way-Rite scale for nine dollars! I immediately scooped it up and took it home with me!

  11. Hey thanks
    The images are beautiful
    i accept that “old is gold”
    Hence vintage watches are great home decor and valuable as they reflect the forgotten and buried memories. https://smarttck.com/animal-themed-ladybug-pocket-watches-with-necklace/

  • Literally can’t stop smiling today because I’m SO excited to finally spill the beans about my candle with @antiquecandleco_ 😍😍 After months of working to find the perfect scent, we are thrilled to share that WARM CARAMEL CRUMBLE by Sarah Joy is coming this fall! 🍂🙌🏻 This candle is all about warm, gooey caramel, cinnamon-spiced maple, rich vanilla & baked green apples. It’s basically like heaven in a jar & I CANNOT wait for you to have this bake-y goodness in your home this fall! 🥧👏🏻
  • I finally got the botanical prints + old door project finished 🌿🙌🏻 What do you guys think?! It was kinda tricky figuring out where to hang these prints, but so many of you voted for this spot in stories & I think it’s perfect 👏🏻👏🏻 The floral prints are from @walmart & I LOVE them. I have an obsession with botanical artwork & these are my new favorite. This is all on the blog today & I also linked up a bunch of other botanical prints from Walmart here: http://liketk.it/2Ea9s #liketkit @liketoknow.it #ad #LTKhome
  • Spent the day in jammies, snuggling my sick kiddos + watching all of their favorite movies 😍 I hate seeing them sick, especially since we’re only a few days into the new school year, but I sure do love these simple days when they need me the most. Nothing else matters more than this right here ❤️👏🏻 http://liketk.it/2E8FG #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • Did a little switcheroo in my vanity area & added in a new rug 🙌🏻😍 I actually took it from the back deck, so it’s technically not new, but it sure adds a lot of pizazz to this spot, right?! Much more cozy now 👏🏻👏🏻 Do you move things around in your home from one room to another? I do it all the time & it’s an easy way to freshen things up without spending any money! http://liketk.it/2E70b #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKhome
  • My little kitchen island is one of my favorite things in our home + I always get so many questions about it. It was actually made from reclaimed barn wood & we’ve had it over 10 years now 😍😍 I bought it when we moved into our first home & it’s been with us ever since. I kinda have an emotional connection to it now—it’s been through so much with us. Do you have furniture like that?? I’ll probably still have this island in my kitchen when I’m an old granny! 👵🏻❤️
