For the mid-century lover in your life, what better way to honor their obsession than bestowing them with vintage wares for the holidays (hint, hint)! Buying vintage items has many benefits besides warming the hearts of collectors: it’s eco-friendly! Here’s a sampling of some beauties that I found while combing Etsy for retro kitsch.
Available at Nachokitty on Etsy, the 1950s souvenir glass set of San Francisco’s cable cars and Golden Gate Bridge, Lake Tahoe, and the Redwoods are sure to please.
These 1950s sake and tea coasters from VintageRetroDesign on Etsy will delight any mod man or woman looking to liven up their cocktail or tea service.
The perpetual calendar…a perfect addition to the mid-century metal desk from EmmyLucy on Etsy.
The best thing about ordering through Etsy sellers…they ship the items to you! However, if you are looking for the actual, 3-D shopping experience, check out some of the fabulous mid-century merchants around the Seattle area, including:
Antika in Greenwood
Classic Consignment in Ballard
Fremont Vintage Mall in Fremont
