Etsy, the popular new site used by artists and crafters, is also a gem for vintage finds such as furniture and accessories. The prices on Etsy are usually quite reasonable — especially compared to shops specializing in vintage and antique furniture — and the treasures are endless and unique.

One great modern-style furniture seller is sprucehome; you can see some of their items pictured above and below. Their prices range from $40 for a vintage pillow to $1800 for a refurbished, reupholstered sofa. They even offer free shipping on most pieces, which is a great bargain!
Another neat seller for fun and elegant accessories is highstreetmarket. They offer lamps, books, bookends, art, and dishes all at reasonable prices.
