Online shopping enthusiasts, rejoice! If you love hunting for a good vintage score but hate digging through the dust-covered corners of an estate sale or spending the whole day dragging your finds through a massive flea market, we're happy to report that there is an easier way. Look for beautiful vintage-inspired dinnerware on Etsy. Normally known as a destination for all things crafts and DIY, there’s been a major uptick in sellers offering old-school dinnerware and glassware.

“Shoppers are increasingly gravitating towards nostalgic, vintage pieces when decorating their spaces — in fact, searches on Etsy for retro decor have spiked 28% [in the last twelve months compared to the year prior]," says Etsy trend expert, Dayna Isom Johnson. “This holiday season is no exception, as many embrace ‘kitchen kitsch’ — one of my favorite trends that is all about incorporating fun, retro kitchen accessories, like glassware, that are equal parts stylish and sustainable.”

Etsy’s Vintage Verification Process

Another bonus of vintage shopping with Etsy is that they handle the tricky part of verifying an item for you. When sellers open a shop or list an item on Etsy, they agree to follow the site’s policies and terms of use, but they also agree to a vintage policy. The big qualifier is that any item labeled vintage is at least 20 years old. Vintage sellers could also be asked to provide specific info to Etsy like what an item is made of, how they’ve determined its age, or even showing pictures of key vintage indicators.

So curl up in your favorite sweats, grab a glass of wine and enjoy scouring Etsy for some of these stunning finds. Here are a few sellers to get you started.


The rich amber color of these 1960’s pedestal dishes add allure to your table. Their faceted bowl and ornate stems make them substantial enough to use them as dessert dishes, but they work for wine, too.


A night of margaritas with friends gets even more fun with this mismatched set of old-school glasses. The different colors, shapes and heights make it easy to distinguish your glass in a crowd. Add some salt and lime, it’s time to party!


C’est magnifique. A spectacular vintage find from France, fill this sculptural decanter and set of eight glasses with your favorite spirits. The mix of primary colors and simple geometric shapes bring midcentury modern flair to your home bar.


Don’t be afraid to add a little fun to your glassware collection. A mixture of blush pink and an iridescent sheen makes these martini glasses feel like a little escape from adulthood. Serve up your favorite drink with an equally fabulous garnish or a twist.


Proof that cocktails can come in all shapes and sizes, these low-profile glasses feel vibrant on your dining table thanks to their green and orange hues. Their unique bowl and stem size lets you easily use them to serve food instead, like a chilled gazpacho or homemade ice cream.
