Shopping for vintage furniture can feel daunting, especially if you’ve never done it before and aren’t sure where to begin. It can also feel a bit limiting if you’re focused solely on thrifting in person and aren’t having luck at any of your local stores. 

Thankfully, online shopping isn’t just for new furniture these days: There are dozens of places to buy and sell vintage and antique goods (and we aren’t only talking about Craigslist). From stores you love like Etsy and Urban Outfitters to newer shops like AptDeco and Everything But the Home, we rounded up 12 of the best places to buy used furniture. 

If you’re ready to get started, check out our helpful guide on how to shop for vintage furniture online here. Here’s to giving some vintage pieces a new home!

1. Apartment Therapy Bazaar

In case you hadn’t heard, we launched our own marketplace to buy and sell vintage and used designer furniture. Think of it like a curated, high-end version of Craigslist. You’ll find everything from lighting and rugs to furniture and decor, including finds from top brands and designers like Arne Jacobsen and Herman Miller (as well as plenty of ABC Carpet & Home and IKEA).

2. eBay

Sometimes antiquing is all about browsing until you happen across that perfect item that speaks to you. But if you happen to be looking for something specific and you know what it’s called, eBay could be the antique hub you’ve been looking for. The site contains literally everything if you know how to find it, and you can score some seriously good deals, too! 

3. Jayson Home

Whether you’re looking for an African stool or a French ice bucket, it matters not. When it comes to amazing vintage (and global!) finds, Jayson Home has it all. There’s even an expansive sale section if you’re hoping to save a penny or two on your vintage finds. 

4. Etsy

Etsy is a must if you’re looking for vintage anything, with hundreds of shops devoted to sourcing and selling antique finds. We’ve rounded up our favorite shops for furniture, lighting, art, and rugs, but you can find pretty much anything if you look hard enough. The rattan shelf above is from Full Circle Finds.

5. Urban Outfitters

Aside from being one of our favorite places to shop for trendy and unique furniture and home decor, Urban Outfitters also has an impressive vintage goods section called Urban Renewal. It features a mix of distinctive pieces sourced from around the world and vintage finds that have been given a second life. There are new finds being offered each week, and in the home section you’ll find tons of furniture, textiles, and rugs — like this one-of-a-kind chair that’s been reupholstered in vintage fabric.

6. One Kings Lane

One Kings Lane has plenty of new products, but their vintage section is quite robust. Beyond furniture, you’ll find lighting, rugs, art, textiles, and books. The site even has blog posts dedicated to vintage dealers, antiques shopping, and top finds if you’re interested in learning more about all things vintage.

7. Revival Rugs

Revival Rugs is one of the best places to find vintage rugs online. You’ll find handmade, authentic vintage rugs available direct to consumers. We’ve seen a variety of Turkish and Moroccan rugs in all different colors and sizes; plus, all rugs are professionally cleaned before they’re shipped to you. Revival also sells a line of Revival-Made rugs that are designed by the brand and made by hand.

8. Rejuvenation

You might know Rejuvenation for their wide assortment of lighting, but West Elm’s sister store also has a can’t-miss section devoted to antiques. Each piece has been thoughtfully restored, whether it’s a light fixture, reupholstered piece of furniture, reframed artwork, or revitalized furniture (like this 1940s-era dining table). Keep an eye out for discounts too, as Rejuvenation tends to run frequent sales.

9. Chairish

One of the more well-known places to shop for vintage goods, Chairish features an expertly curated selection of home furnishings and art. It is utilized by consumers, designers, and dealers alike — so prices tend to be on the very high end of what you’d expect from vintage furniture. However, Chairish takes care of all the shipping, unlike other sites where you work that out directly with the seller.

10. AptDeco

Similar to Chairish, AptDeco is a marketplace for buying and selling vintage goods that takes care of the shipping and delivery for you — although it’s only available in the NYC area. The delivery team inspects each piece to ensure that the quality is up to par, and if you’re not satisfied there’s a money-back guarantee. It’s easy, safe, and totally worry-free.

11. Everything But The House

Love hunting for hidden gems at flea markets and estate sales? You’ll love EBTH, which lists secondhand items you can bid on (bidding always starts at $1). Everything is authenticated and handled by the EBTH team, guaranteeing a level of transparency you won’t find everywhere else. Be sure to keep checking — products are bid on and sold every day.

12. 1stdibs

Offering everything from vintage Cartier jewelry to fabulous finds for the home, 1stdibs’s online inventory is huge. What’s more, it’s offered without reserve pricing. Use the site’s extensive filters to find exactly what you’re looking for, or just browse for that next obsession.
