Etsy Finds: Vintage Goodies

Don’t get us wrong – we love spending hours scouring the local antique markets to find a unique vintage piece that can either be restored or up-cycled into something new. But, sometimes it is nice to have someone else do the work for you. The “Vintage” section of Etsy’s website is a favorite place for us to score killer deals and insert some age and character into our spaces.

There’s no need to play into the typical baby stereotype of a pastel palette and plush toys.  For the child that is sure to grow up just as design conscious as his parents, we’ve included a fantastic new interpretation of a rocking horse (11) which serves as art just as much as it does fun. Aptly named “A tip of the Hat and a Twist of My Mustache”,…
