Etsy features a smattering of unique crafts, accessories, and home goods. Although a large portion of the products found on Etsy are handmade, the website is also home to hundreds of unique vintage shops. Browsing these unique vintage shops is akin to having a personal shopper; each item is handpicked by an up-and-coming fashionista who does the hard work for you! The following shops serve as examples of the cheap vintage wear you can find on Etsy, though they have seemingly remained under the radar. Browse these incredible shops before they become wildly popular and regularly priced!
The Jennie Shop
The Jennie Shop houses re-vamped pieces that take dowdy vintage to cutting-edge cute. Although the seller is new to Etsy, this shop will undoubtedly increase in popularity with time. In addition to floral high-waisted shorts, amazing 70’s style dresses, and colorful re-hemmed printed skirts, the owner of the shop creates beautiful embroidered bracelets from thread at a complete steal (less than six bucks!) Also, her small collection of vintage shoes is adorable and cheap, though they are more suited for the more fashion-forward type. Clearly, this girl has style.
Cookie K’s Vintage
This shop features shoes, purses, wallets, dresses, housewares (an Yves Saint Laurent vintage hand towel, anyone?), and even lingerie! Despite the popularity of this seller, the prices are reasonable. The philosophy of the seller is to showcase items that she would wear herself. Most impressive is the featured collection of vintage shoes, the majority of which are in the twenty to thirty-dollar price range. All of the clothing pieces featured on the site are inexpensive and cute, mostly with a 70’s theme. The best part of this shop is the “fresh for fall” section; if you are clueless as to what is in style this season, you can pick up a few pieces here to look instantly stylish!
Rusty Charm is an unbelievable cheap shop for vintage jewels. Shop here for vintage brooches, bracelets, earrings, necklaces, and other random pieces. Almost every piece of jewelry featured on this site is less than twenty dollars. This jewelry featured on this site is perfect for a glam night out, and no one will know that you paid only ten dollars for a vintage pair of topaz and clear rhinestone earrings. It may take you a long time to search through the baubles featured on this page, but you never know when you may come across the perfect pair of earrings for that random sweater you wear twice a year! Although the high number of sales may not qualify this website for the “under the radar category”, the prices are so low that it seems as though the shop had just opened!
