Vintage hunting on Etsy



Two more weeks until outdoor antique market season officially kicks off around here. Woo hoo!

On Sunday April 24th you'll find me on the 401 headed west to Aberfoyle for my favorite outdoor market. I can already feel the anticipation building. You know that feeling when you are about to hit the market? Do you have it too?

If you are a new visitor to my blog, welcome! I'm just back from a blogging break. Feeling energized and ready to spend time here again. I've been busy with my freelance work (interior styling projects and writing for The Toronto Star both of which I love doing!) these past months but I've vowed to carve out more time for my blog. 

So back to the antiquing...I go year round. I have a few I regularly make a trip to visit. If you live in the Toronto area two good markets I visit all year are Freelton Market, on Hwy. 6 just south of the 401, and Southworks in Cambridge. For whatever reason I head west and I'm not as familiar with the markets east of the city. 

Etsy is also a great space to shop for vintage. So I thought I'd share some Canadian Etsy shops you might want to check out including a few finds I'm loving. By the way, you can also check out my Etsy finds here!

Granted this vintage Dansk flatware set is a little out of my budget at $1499 but they do have some beautiful vintage finds in a range of prices (especially mid-century/Scandinavian) and are located in Toronto.

Good Folk Vintage

 Another Canadian Etsy seller Good Folk Vintage is based in Vancouver. Love these brass cranes.

 
Gazaboo



How about this pile of vintage frames? These would be great for some DIY projects! From Canadian Etsy shop Gazaboo in Mallorytown Landing between Kingston and Brockville, Ontario.

Tiny Beaches Shop


I have a bit of an addiction to lamps, especially the pretty vintage kind. Love this sunny yellow "citron" enamel lamp from Toronto Etsy shop Tiny Beaches Shop.
