Etsy got its start as a small, crafty corner of the internet for enterprising creatives. But it’s since evolved into a global marketplace for millions of unique, one-of-a-kind pieces sourced from Bali to Boston. Thanks to the best Etsy stores, you can pick up a handmade ceramic vase, three-foot stalks of dried pampas grass, made-to-order jewelry, an authentic Turkish kilim, and a vintage dress from the 1940s in a single shopping trip.
The vintage clothing and accessories collection in particular has exploded in the last few years. Many independent thrift stores actually host their e-commerce on Etsy, so you can shop curated secondhand goods from Instagram-loved thrifting destinations and untapped sellers alike.
While shopping vintage on Etsy may not replace a Sunday afternoon spent digging through the racks at Salvation Army (a therapeutic treat for the true vintage lover), scouring antiques online is a safe and socially-distanced alternative fit for these unprecedented times. So go on, jot down your measurements and browse the best Etsy stores to find vintage gems.
