Vintage art always feels unique, personal and it carries a lot of history and whimsy — which is what makes it so fun to hunt down. One of our go-to sources? Etsy, though it takes a lot of sifting. To get you started on where to look, we gathered some great sellers of vintage art; they carry everything from maps and oils to old-school movie posters. Prepare your walls, because it's going to be hard to say no to what you'll find when you start looking through their selections...

Mighty Vintage is all about finding something different, so you can bet that the art in stock will bring something special to your room. Timea, the owner, focuses on finding things that are extraordinary and strange, quirky and playful. In her profile she shared, "Sometimes I take friends along for a hunt, and I find one of those weird pieces and hold it up with glee, and one of them just goes: 'What the hell do you want with that?' I just grin and as soon as they see it in the shop, they get it." Her shop has a bevvy of fun pull-down art, from flower prints to shark charts.
