We all have heard countless interior designers share their excitement of finding the perfect vintage pieces for their decorating projects. We have seen quite a few stories about their trips to their favorite flea markets, where they seem to discover things that are timelessly beautiful and, more importantly, one-of-a-kind. But some of us don’t always have access to the best markets in the country, nor do we have the kind of luck that helps us find that perfect piece to make our homes look beautifully curated. Shopping vintage can take quite a bit of skill and persistence. At Rue, we are like you, we don’t always have the time to hit the flea market on an early Saturday or Sunday. So, we looked to our favorite online vintage resources, to find the best picks on the internet. As an added bonus, we kept our budget under $300.
So, where did we search? Jayson Home & Garden has a whole category dedicated to antique flea market finds. They have perfectly worn classic lined consoles and chairs but we fell in love with this whiskey leather suitcase. Etsy also has countless vintage sellers. Two of our favorites are Branches Furniture and Folding Chairs. And don’t forget about Ebay. It’s a tough site to navigate because of the millions of items being sold there every day. Our top searches are “moroccan rugs”, “mid-century highball glasses” and “reclaimed wood”. You are likely to find quality pieces with those search terms that will add sophistication to any design. Lastly, our ultimate source for antiques is High Street Market. Kelly Galvin Robson’s site not only has the best online selection of vintage but it is also extremely well priced. We have made quite a few purchases on High Street and have never been disappointed.
Here’s our selection! Share with us your favorite online vintage resources!
