1001 Vintage - A Favorite Shop on Etsy

Over the summer I discovered 1001 Vintage, a shop on Etsy, based in Amsterdam and Madrid. Collectively, these items are the discovery of vintage art, design and interior decor enthusiasts.  I fast became a fan of this shop and their collection of exquisite pieces and I find myself occasionally window-shopping on the site and yes, I did cave and purchase two gorgeous artifacts. I wanted to share with you just a few of their items. They are intriguing because of their color or texture, or an interesting shape, each one reminiscent of the period they were crafted in. Take a look.

These are some of my favorites. Could you pick any favorites? The decanter is quite unusual as well as the striped pitcher (above) and the candle holder reminds me of crushed ice. These pieces would look good just on their own without taking into account the utilitarian aspect. To see more of their collection of beautifully crafted pieces visit 1001 Vintage on Etsy.

Like I said, I did buy a couple of items for my home over the summer. One is on my mantle, which I will share with you next week. It was scheduled for today but instead I decided it would be a good idea to do a post on 1001 Vintage first.
