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!)

    Hi Sarah from the UK.

    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!

  • I can’t believe it’s already been three weeks since our trip to the Silobration. 😍😍 I was so glad my husband could go along with me & I love this shot of us—standing in muddy puddles & soaking wet, but happy as can be. I am so blessed to do life with this guy by my side for over 16 years now. 🙏❤️
  • Rise & shine, it’s coffeeeeeee time! ☕️☕️Can you believe Thanksgiving is only two weeks from today? TWO WEEKS. Time to get yo stretchy pants ready!! 🙌🏻 I’d love to know what Thanksgiving traditions you have in your family. I’m looking for new things to do with the kids & I’m curious if you do anything special or unique to celebrate the day?! 🦃
  • You guys told me you love before & after shots, so here’s another one for you. Swipe right to see how I styled our breakfast nook when we first moved in three years ago. This was actually after I painted the walls, they were dark brown before, and I was pretty happy with how it looked. 😬Obviously we have since updated a few things in this space—I added faux shiplap (it was my first big project & I was so proud I did it all by myself!) and then I added a new light fixture, a different table, shelves, etc. .
.
The thing that strikes me the most with these two photos is the difference in my style. At the time I was struggling to figure out what I liked & how I could make that work with a tight budget. It didn’t happen over night, but slowly things have evolved in this space & it looks totally different today. And if you think about it, that’s kind of the cool thing about life. Nothing we do is ever perfect when we just start out. There are bumps in the road, struggles, growing pains, etc. But as time goes on we (hopefully) evolve to be better than when we began. And even though it’s nice to get to the pretty after photo, especially if you’re impatient like me, it’s also kind of nice to appreciate the journey. Yes, that’s cheesy as heck. But it’s TRUE. I love looking back at these photos of when we first started out because it reminds me of the journey & how hard we’ve worked on our home. It’s still a work in progress,  but I’m grateful for it all!
  • Today was crazy/surreal/awesome all at the same time. I spent the day working on a project that totally took me out of my comfort zone, but it went so well & I’m happy I decided to push myself & do it. (Watch my stories to see what I’ve been up to!) Then when I got home I had this smiling baby waiting for me at the front door. My husband snapped this picture of us & I just love the look on her little face. This girl is attached to my hip all day every day, so she was very happy to be back with mama. 😍😍 Now it’s time for pizza & cozy clothes!! 🙌🏻🙏
  • I’m still a little ways off from jumping into Christmas decor, but I did pick up a pair of these eucalyptus & pinecone wreaths from Target yesterday. I loooooooove them & now I’m getting a teeny tiny itch to add a few more pops of Christmas into this room. BUT I’m going to hold out a little longer. Anyone else still holding onto pumpkins or have you started to deck the halls?!
  • #flashbackfriday to one of my favorite snapshots with my girl. I can’t believe this was almost a year ago 😭😭 This sweet pea is my little BFF & I shared in stories today about how she teaches me to be brave. I hope you watch it if you’re facing something big in your life right now. It’s a simple, yet powerful reminder that fear is choice & you can face anything in life if you simply make the decision to be brave. #goforit #getthatcandygirl
