Etsy Finds Volume 3

A few months ago I moved in to a new apartment.  While I don’t have a lot of space (it’s NYC after all), I definitely have more space than I did at my last apartment which I shared with 2 friends.  Now that I’ve finally had time to settle in and I’m back from lots of summer travel, I’m starting to think about a few pieces I want to buy and a few décor decisions I need to make, like window treatments.  Most importantly, I need a small dining table and chairs and a new rug.  I’ve started looking around at the retail store offerings, and I feel a little disappointed.  While I don’t want to spend too much money on these pieces, I definitely do want to invest in items that feel special and unique and have a little character.  It seems like I see the same styles over and over again at the large big box stores and even though the prices are low, I just can’t bring myself to buy something so basic.  One solution I’ve found is scouring Etsy, Chairish, Viyet, and Highboy.  I love Chairish, Viyet and The Highboy because they offer designer pieces that have been gently used and are offered at pricing much below their original retail value.  Exploring Etsy feels like a treasure hunt and the prices are unbeatable.  I rounded up some of my favorite finds today in the event someone else might be looking for something special, too!

  1. I'm having the same issue decorating my new apartment. All of the retail options are so boring and everything looks the same kind of. I've been scouring Housing Works for more unique pieces but I don't want the whole place to be vintage. Etsy is a great option! Thanks for curating these picks - if you come across any vendor that makes awesome coffee tables lmk! Very unexcited by what I've been seeing at stores. xoxo


What say you? I'm all ears.
