Epic Etsy Finds & The Shops Behind Them: Pursuing Vintage

pursuing vintage disclaimeramazing vintage and handmade home decor made easy- find all the best ertsy shops through the epic etsy finds and the shops behind them series

I'm starting a new series where I share with you the epic Etsy finds I come across and the Etsy shops behind them. There are some truly amazing Etsy shops out there. Some of them I come back to time and time again because they always have new merchandise that I'm excited about. You know that vintage home decor is kind of my things. I just love an authentic aged look at the story behind each piece. I also love whimsy and a globally inspired collection of goods. So I hope this series brings you closer to the amazing shops I frequent.

The first shop on my list is Pursuing Vintage. The name is epic, right? So naturally the selection would be, too. The shop owner is Kristen and she's the blog author of PursuingVintage.com. Her blog covers a variety of home decor trends, vintage finds and inspiration. She's really well spoken (written?) and I love reading her posts. Her shop is an extension of that blog where she shares trending vintage home decor.

Did you catch my Boho Home Decor "Must Haves" from last week? If you want to start looking at Imari or chinoiserie in general, she's a great place to start. She has several Imari pieces and loads of ginger jars, blue and white ceramic, and vases. She also has an extensive collection of brass to choose from- what's not to love? As is always the case with these types of shops, quantities are limited and stock always changes, so snatch up what you want while you can.

Here are two pieces I have in my home that I shared on my Instagram:





Keep up with Pursuing Vintage:

I hope you find this series helpful. We all know we can find what everyone else has at Target, but for a truly eclectic, collected, homey look you'll want to sprinkle in one of a kind pieces. I'm on a mission to bring you the best places to find those kinds of pieces so keep a look out! You can sign up for email updates so you'll be notified the next time I have an epic Etsy shop to share with you.
