Nothing haunts us like the vintage we didn’t buy.
Vintage furniture shopping is difficult, to say the least. Finding a store with a good selection can feel impossible, sorting through endless troves of furniture only to leave empty-handed is disheartening, and finding a way to transport the piece you found is an even tougher challenge. For us, vintage shopping online is a no-brainer. It saves time, effort, and you can shop wider selections from multiple sellers. So we’re breaking down our top places to find unique vintage online.
For mid-century, vintage and popular brands, shop AptDeco! The vintage selection ranges from single resellers, to avid vintage collectors who are looking to offload their incredible collections. The prices range from super affordable to not-so-budget-friendly, giving you the best of both worlds. The best part is that delivery and assembly are taken care of by a white glove delivery team so you don’t have to worried about any missing screws, scratches, or carrying a sofa up a fifth floor walk-up!
For more expensive designer brands, check out Chairish. Chairish is a design-lover’s dream, with a curated selection of the most luxurious brands at slightly less, luxury prices. While you’ll still pay a pretty penny for most of these, it’s a great place if you’re looking for specific vintage or antique pieces.
1st Dibs is the priciest of these three options, but has some truly unique, one-of-a-kind pieces. If you’re prepared to shell out some cash, you’ll find the vintage piece you’ve always dreamed about. Furniture isn’t the only thing they sell either; you can shop jewelry, fashion, art and decor, too.
You can find just about anything on Etsy, including vintage furniture. The selection isn’t as large as the previously mentioned sites, but if you’re looking for a specific piece this is a great place to check.
Local Vintage Store Social Media Accounts
If you have any local vintage stores, there’s a good chance they also post their product selections on social media or their website. Often times you can buy products just by DMing them, so you don’t have to worry about rushing into the store to claim it.
In New York City, a few of our favorites are Dobbin St. Co-Op, Home Union, Dream Fishing Tackle and Furnish Green.
