discovering vintage items on Etsy

Do you love Etsy?  Tracery’s Doug and Bess are both big fans of the site.  We haven’t made any Etsy purchases for clients…yet…but we’re starting to check it out more and more.  There’s some really great vintage items showing up on the site besides, of course, the handmade offerings that the concept is built upon.


Doug recently moved into a unit in a 1940’s bungalow court just outside of Mountain Brook Village near Birmingham.  He has added a couple of Etsy purchased vintage items to his decor, including the white ceramic owl figurine and a very fun Fenton glass hobnail covered dish–which sort of resembles a crown!  [both pictured in the cabinet above].
