Since quarantine, we have turned to Etsy to make up for the missed opportunities to scavenge at the flea markets where we enjoy the thrill of finding something unique for a good deal. We love this underrated treasure trove for one-of-a-kind antiques and handmade pieces from all over the world. It is also an amazing platform that cultivates creativity and enables artists and designers to connect with customers globally. In an effort to promote sustainability and support small businesses during this pandemic, we did some serious virtual flea market shopping and here are our Etsy favorites:
1. Vintage Ceramics
Give your flowers and plants a unique home.
2. Woven baskets
Woven baskets are so versatile – you can use them as a planter holder, storage, laundry basket or even shopping bag.
3. Wooden blanket ladder
Make hanging bath towels look artsy.
4. Original artwork
Although there are plenty of digital prints readily available, original plantings say more about you as an art fan.
5. Linen bedding
Naturally-cooling linen bedding for hot summer nights.
6. Vintage designer furniture
You can find rare vintage furnitures by renowned designers like Charles Ray Eames, Giotto Stoppino, Hans Wegner, just to name a few.

Don’t you wanna cuddle in this blanket already?
9. Handmade mugs
If you’re a mug hoarder, Etsy has so many cute ones to offer.
