“Sex and the City” star Sarah Jessica Parker has a love for buying vintage. Parker showed off three of her favorite vintage home decor finds that she’s picked up over the years and even let followers in on a secret most vintage hunters like to keep to themselves: She let follwers know where she likes to hunt for pre-owned goods.

“3 beauties. All old. Used. Pre-owned,” Parker captioned her June 5 Instagram post. “I’d like to think at one time someone was as charmed by them as I am.”

In her still life, she included a vintage screen “that weighs far more [than] her dainty silhouette would suggest,” she joked. “Dragged through the bustle of Clignancourt and the narrow streets of Paris, down the corridors of and through security at Charles de Gaulle airport by one very grumpy @hickey a hundred years ago.”

She also included a parsons-style stool upholstered in a charming pink, purple, and teal plaid, noting, “she enchanted me.”

And finally, SJP wrote that she found her Wordsworth quote embroidered tableau that reads, “But to be young was very heaven” on Etsy.

Sadly, as Parker responded to a commenter, the embroidery was a one-of-a-kind find on Etsy. “There was only one,” she wrote back to a follower who asked where they could find it. “It was a vintage embroidery from Sweden. A one off! So sorry!!”

According to Etsy seller Cape Cod Modern, who sold this same piece a while back, the embroidered piece is the end result of a Flavia Weedn-designed kit sold in the 1970s. Though they’re hard to find, there are a few other Weedn pieces on Etsy at the moment, including this one, a vintage pillowcase that’s labeled as a rare find.

“I walk by. They catch my eye,” Parker concluded her caption. Time to hunt for SJP-inspired vintage goods on Etsy for the rest of the day.
