Truth be told, we love the hunt of hitting the weekend antique market and unearthing a treasure just itching to be shown off. But easy and effortless, the whole process is not (think early morning call times, sunbaked blacktop, and dust-lots of it!). Thankfully, we have Etsy, that godsend of retail destinations where we can shop the curated selections of independent shopkeepers and antique enthusiasts the world over.
Getting ready for the hunt at a reasonable hour while still tucked in bed with a cup of coffee is much more enjoyable than getting up at the crack of dawn to brave the endless aisles of antique markets. If you're in the market for a vintage or antique piece but don't have the time for the chase, you're in luck. We've rounded up 10 of the best shops out there with treasures aplenty. Add these to your favorites list.
Furniture, antique oddities, and plenty of selection make this Americana-inflected shop a perennial favorite.
