While not everything I’ve found in the past is carry-on friendly, I’ve usually managed to tuck a few smaller finds into my suitcase (or ship what doesn’t fit).

Cross-country travel may still be on the back burner right now, but that hasn’t stopped me from getting my vintage fix, albeit locally while social distancing or using contactless delivery services. That said, I’ve started noticing more and more vintage vendors taking to Instagram to sell their wares.

Des Moines-based Funky Finds Vintage and Retro is what owner Suzie Fredregill describes as a time capsule of the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s. “When you step through our doors, you may feel like you’re back in grandma’s kitchen, Aunt Betty’s living room, or Uncle Bill’s basement tiki bar,” she says. It’s easy for customers to replicate this feeling in their own space, whether they choose to purchase clothing, furniture, barware, or something else entirely. “We love the vibrance and energy of the era, so we sell the entire lifestyle,” Fredregill explains. “We are all eclectic by nature, and our homes should reflect who we are. Live what you love!”

Located in Lexington, Kentucky, The Domestic is home to roughly 30 vendors that sell everything from “furniture, houseplants, and hand-knotted rugs to vinyl records and Louis Vuitton bags,” owner Candace Reichbach explains. “Our vendors keep an eye out for quality and substance as opposed to just age, so our vibe is very eclectic.” Don’t be shy about Instagramming your in-store experience if you do stop by. “I love when a customer finds just the right piece that adds to the soul of their space,” Reichbach adds. “We welcome customers to share photos with us on social media, so we can, in turn, share that inspiration with our followers.”
According to its website, Revival Antiques is “considered by many to be the best kept secret in the South!” Its location in a historic general store only adds to the shopping experience. “Many customers feel as though they have stepped back in time with a visit to our store,” the company’s website states. “We call it ‘antiques in their natural setting.’” The shop is home to items such as classic Staffordshire dogs, oil paintings, and rich mahogany chests.

Cedar & Cotton is a Black woman-owned vintage store based in southwest Baltimore. “We love not only the sustainability, versatility and timelessness of well-made furniture of every era but also the stories that vintage pieces hold,” owners Nasira Latif and Raina Smallwood say. “Our advice for acquiring vintage furniture—and everything else—is to only select pieces you absolutely love and feel connected to in some way. We follow this rule when sourcing for the shop and always encourage our customers to do the same.” They take an especially thoughtful approach in refurbishing pieces for the shop as well. “When refinishing or reupholstering vintage furniture, we often incorporate fabrics and themes of Black & African culture,” Latif and Smallwood explain. “This is a small gesture in paying homage to the unnamed furniture makers of color of yesteryear, who never received any recognition for their masterworks.”
The Vintage Retriever in Holden, Massachusetts, features a cheerful golden retriever logo and is a one-stop shop for home decor and gifts alike. Here you’ll find everything from vintage windows to chic jewelry. “Our shop has a vintage, rustic, earthy aesthetic complete with lots of textures, natural wood, original paint, and live plants,” owner Julie McNamara says. “New items like stoneware mugs, hand-dyed scarves, mason jar candles, and woven tote bags blend atop authentic antique workbenches and factory tables.”

In addition to handmade pieces, “hundreds of vintage doors, cast iron sinks, mantels, and various other architectural salvage and vintage goodies” can be found within the 8,000-square-foot showroom, she explains. “We try to make our showroom an inviting and youthful place,” Bernardo adds. “It’s full of vintage furniture and turn of the century hardware store displays, but we pair that with old school hip hop or reggae playing on the speakers. A wall to wall mural brings life to our old car dealership turned showroom and workshop.” For Woodward Throwbacks, it’s all about showcasing amazing vintage pieces in a modern context. “We like to say that ‘reclaimed’ doesn’t have to mean rustic,” says Bernardo.
Minneapolis’s Hunt & Gather is a “vintage amusement store that is people’s happy place,” owner Kristi Stratton says, adding that the shop is “groovy, quirky, edited, and always freshly stocked.” Offering everything from succulents to oil paintings—and much more, Stratton says Hunt & Gather is absolutely the coolest shop you will ever step your foot in, but you’ll just have to go someday to find out for sure.
Located in Laurel, Mississippi, Peddlers’ Junktion features home accessories as well as clothing from dozens of vendors. “We have quite an eclectic mix of goods—everything from period vintage to classic antiques to primitive,” owner Elana Lawson says. “I personally love primitive pieces that you know have a great story just by looking at them. You can never have too many baskets or old quilts; they are works of art with functionality.”
At 90,000-square-feet, Relics is Missouri’s largest antiques mall and is full of hundreds of vendor booths of all kinds. “Think up a theme, and it is probably represented in a booth at Relics,” says Beverly Robb, Relics’ owner. The store also has a large event center attached and a smaller gathering space within it. “Relics has a wide range of prices and products and a staggering array of choices,” Robb adds. “From the $1 items, like a vintage silver plated serving fork in our Fun Flea Market Section, to carved antique European cabinets, as well as many mid-century modern pieces of furniture (both European and American), you would be hard pressed not to find a coveted item.”
The Antique Barn is much larger than its name suggests, spanning 16,500-square-feet and featuring more than 50 vendors. “You can find everything from high-end English antiques and custom reclaimed furniture to farm finds and rusty yard art,” the retailer proclaims on its website.

After years of operating a brick and mortar store in Lincoln, Home and Closet Vintage is now based entirely online, making the shopping experience accessible to those located all across the country.

The store’s aesthetic? “A mix of Scandinavian, American Western, and organic looks,” owner Clinton Collins explains. “We also have a full service upholstery shop and produce a number of furnishings [in house] as well.”

Plus, many of Retro Vegas’s products are available for rent, which means hosting that “Mad Men” dinner party just got way easier (when themed dinner parties are a thing again, that is).

“At Salvage Style, nothing’s too precious, but everything’s got character, color, texture, and a story to tell,” Amy Hughes says of her Maplewood, New Jersey-based business. Think woven baskets, vibrant Parsons tables, and plenty of wicker. “I buy and sell what I love—furniture with handsome wood grain, quality construction, handmade details, and an organic modern vibe that‘s rooted in history.” The storefront alone is certainly worth a visit. “Housed in a plant-filled, 3,000-square-foot former auto garage from the 1920s, I share my showroom with a photographer, interior designer, and vintage fashion retailer,” Hughes explains. “When the weather’s nice, we swing open our giant carriage doors and spill out onto the sidewalk for open-air flea markets.”
“Back Again Mercantile is inspired by the love of history,” owner Mark Wingert says. The Albuquerque-based retailer is filled with storied items, including vintage furniture and pieces handcrafted from recycled wood. “The newer pieces incorporate styles from the past to be utilized in the present,” Wingert explains. If you manage to drop by IRL, you just might be vying for items with a Hollywood set designer or two. “One of our favorite customers is in the movie industry and looking for production props for sound stage sets,” says Wingert. So you know the vintage wares here are authentic.
Back in 2019, Maggie Holladay founded Claude Home, whose stylish showroom is based in New York City’s East Village. “Born out of a passion for vintage furniture and a love of classic designs and forms, Claude brings expertly curated pieces to the homes of collectors around the world,” Holladay says. “With an emphasis on sustainability, Claude gives vintage pieces a second life.” Claude’s high-end pieces are available for shipping and range from bouclé sofas to delicate onyx accents.

Fargo Antiques and Repurposed Market, otherwise known as “The FARM,” features over 60 vendor booths, which means they offer tons of variation in styles, types of merchandise, and design aesthetics under one roof, according to event coordinator and mall vendor Deanna Dahlsad. The selection ranges from 100-year-old antiques (including crocks and jugs, postcards, and other ephemera) and quintessential vintage collectibles (everything from classic kitchenalia, mid-century pottery, and advertising memorabilia) to salvaged and custom painted pieces, Dahlsad explains. “As you may have guessed, farmhouse and country decor is huge here, so we have plenty of those finds,” she adds. “This includes prim cupboards covered in chippy paint, galvanized metal chicken feeders, horse hames, antique snowshoes, rusty truck tailgates, and old barn wood salvaged from actual local barns, of course!”
Columbus’ Splendor Revival offers vintage, secondhand, upcycled, and contemporary products—all with “an undercurrent of boho glam,” as owner Katya Philmore puts it. She’s always looking for unique pieces that spark conversation and bring happiness into a space. “I believe that beautiful, juicy bits of our lives unfold in ordinary moments,” says Philmore. “When we fill our sacred spaces with objects we love, joy surrounds us in big and small ways.” Philmore is particularly drawn to colorful pieces and those with eye-catching textures. “A little bit of vibrancy can really bring warmth and playfulness into a space,” she adds. “The home accents I carry are always evolving, as I look at outfitting a space like accessorizing an outfit.”
ReModernOK specializes in home decor primarily from the 1950s through the ’70s. “We believe mixing is the key,” owner Joe Jeldy says, whether that’s in the form of period, color, metal type, and more. And at the shop, the belief that “oldies” certainly are “goodies” holds true. “Our main belief is to communicate to the customer to use less overall but buy iconic designers from the period,” Jeldy explains. “We believe those pieces will really never go out of style and hold their value.”
Portland’s Appetite is “a vintage home decor shop that combines furniture, home decor, plants, and in-house made fabric pieces, like pillows and plant buckets, to create a welcoming and collected presentation,” says Erin Albin, who co-owns the shop with her sister, Megan Oser. “Our customers often tell us they’d love to live in our shop!” Those with a soft spot for brass decorative accents and details will certainly want to take a look at what Appetite has to offer. “The shop is usually stocked with everything from brass armadillo figurines to brass planters,” Albin says.
At Philadelphia’s Retrospect Vintage, one can easily score a brass and glass side table for under $60 or an ornate, mantel-sized mirror for under $100. “One of our biggest goals is to bring the most unique selection of furniture, wares, and home accessories we can find to our shop,” the staff notes. “With every piece being hand selected, we look for pieces that reflect our ideal space: modern, cool, and comfortable with a touch of that vintage feel.” Fun fact: The store is actually owned and operated by Goodwill Industries of Southern New Jersey and Philadelphia and has buyers who select the items for the shop.
Husband and wife team Kristy and Duran Searles operate the Kingston-based store Painted Karma, which offers a mix of handcrafted and refurbished furniture pieces, as well as textiles, artwork, and home accents. “Like art, the beauty of handcrafted furniture is its ability to tell a story and stir emotion,” Kristy says. “Each of our antique and vintage pieces is restored to maintain the integrity of its history, while giving it new life and aesthetic value.” She adds, “We recognize that your home is a reflection of you and your style, and often generic furniture does not capture the look you have in mind. At Painted Karma, our philosophy is to consider modified or custom designs to illuminate your spaces with artistic and individual flair!”
Columbia’s Re-Invintage features both new and reclaimed pieces as well as paint for DIY furniture projects. “Throughout the years, our core belief in maintaining the integrity of each piece has never changed,” the retailer’s website states. “We respect and preserve as much of the original piece while it takes on a new life.” From the looks of their store photography, modern farmhouse and French country appear to be their main aesthetics—look no further for homespun table linens, galvanized metal accents, and oversized lanterns for both indoors and outdoors—amongst one-of-a-kind salvage windows and antique corbels.
“’Where new meets old meets local’ is our motto,” says Jenn Harlan, owner of Younique Finds in Rapid City, South Dakota (just a half hour away from Mount Rushmore). “My husband, Hunter, and I travel nationwide to bring back original antique and vintage items.” Accessories are full of personality—you’ll find vintage crates, signs, retro accessories, and light fixtures alongside artwork from over 20 local artists. Pieces skew a little more rustic in style. “Due to where we are located in South Dakota, we choose to pick and bring into the store many farmhouse items, such as Hoosier cabinets, rustic pine cabinets, old washtubs, and many items we find on old farms,” Harlan explains.
Nostalgia, based in Knoxville, Tennessee, is a 6,000-square-foot shop filled with pieces from more than 30 vendors. “Our merchandise varies widely from furniture to clothes, records to home decor—and everything in between,” owner Amie Swanson explains. “The overall vibe we like to go for in our store is lighthearted and ‘jaunty.’ We really just like to have fun with what merchandise we carry and hope our customers enjoy our lighthearted atmosphere.”

I was super impressed with the selection of vintage brass accessories and pottery on site, and most of these smalls are shippable.
The shopping bags at Salt Lake City’s Copperhive Vintage read, “I Love Dead People’s Stuff,” a sentiment that may resonate with those who can’t resist a good estate sale. Unlike many of the other stores featured here, this shop also offers a vast selection of clothing in addition to finds for the home. Many furniture items lean boho (picture peacock chairs and other wicker and rattan pieces), but there is definitely a wide variety of objects to be shopped here.
Mid-century modern fanatics in the Williston, Vermont, area and beyond will swoon over Heirloom Decor Shop’s selection of chairs, sofas, credenzas, and accent pieces.

The Old Lucketts Store in Leesburg, Virginia, is a favorite shopping destination for those living in the DC area and far beyond. “At Lucketts, we buy what we love, from vintage corbels and orchard ladder to architectural parts from old homes and gorgeous new upholstery and dining tables,” owner Suzanne Eblen says. “We look for items that can help make our customers’ homes unique and beautiful.” Eye-catching pieces are drawn from the surrounding region. “There are 20 vendors here that scour the countryside of Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and beyond,” Elben explains. “They seriously know how to find killer stuff, and they have been doing it well for over 24 years!”
Seattle’s ReRun Room features vintage furniture and home decor as well as items from local makers, including jewelry, artwork, and other giftable pieces. “Sometimes I think of ReRunRoom as a foster home for vintage furniture,” owner Jess Rainbolt says. “We bring in interesting pieces, give them some TLC, and help them find their forever homes, where they can be enjoyed for years to come.” So what can shoppers expect to find? “We don’t stick with one style or category,” Rainbolt explains. “There’s everything from Victorian bamboo folding shelves to ’80s leopard print lounges—if a piece is interesting, fun, or beautiful, we’re into it!” While mid-century modern items continue to be most popular, Rainbolt’s personal aesthetic is leaning more toward postmodernism, ’90s contemporary, and very bright colors, so you’ll start seeing more of these items popping up soon. The magic is in the mix at ReRun Room.
Mike O’Bryant of MOB Vintage sells an amalgam of vintage pieces. “Whether it is furniture, home decor, toys, vintage electronics, or collectibles, I tend to find items that are odd, unique, and bring back sweet nostalgic memories,” he says. “I have been in this field for about 10 years now, and what I’ve noticed is that my aesthetic is, shall I say, fluid. It changes with the season!” While his brick and mortar store is technically located just outside of Washington, D.C. proper on Kensington, Maryland’s, Antique Row, O’Bryant has also exhibited at D.C.’s Georgetown Flea Market, which operates on Sundays year round.
Eloquence Antiques & Artisans, based in Morgantown, West Virginia, features 100 vendors and is “where Flea Market Flip meets ‘Fixer Upper’,” according to owner April Black. “I wanted to create a space that combines local talented artisans with unique antique merchandise,” she says. The store features chalk painted furniture, stoneware, stained glass, and much more, with new items arriving daily. “You never know what you are going to find when you walk through the door,” Black says. “I believe that’s why customers love coming back every couple of weeks to explore new finds, and sometimes they even have to rent a U-Haul to take all their goodies home! It’s definitely becoming a destination for many out-of-state customers.”
With a name reflecting its home city of Milwaukee, Brew City Modern features eclectic home decor from the 1950s through ’70s. The retailer’s slogan, “We’re not just furniture,” pays a nod to the lamps, pottery, and other decorative items for sale. “My aesthetic is a fun vintage and colorful yet modern kind of vibe,” owner Eric Lewis says. “I’m never afraid to add a pop of color to any room!” Based on the glimpses I’ve seen of BC Modern, this rings true of the shop, too, which features all sorts of vibrant finds.
Jackson Hole-based Mountain Dandy is known for its modern aesthetic and features stylish furniture, barware, artwork, and so much more. “The products that we sell in the store are all products that we either love or use,” says John Frechette, who operates the store with his partner, Christian Burch. “The items that we choose for the shop are items that we love, and then, in turn, hope that the customers love. This has made the process and the shop more enjoyable for us as owners because we aren’t trying to predict trends or try to read what customers want so much as curate what we like.”
