Vintage Maxwell House Coffee Cups

Vintage Maxwell House Coffee Cups came from an Estate Sale says Owner RetroChalet

Today we’re answering a question from Jane Dickson of Missouri.  She asks,  “Where do Etsy Sellers get all their goodies?”  Well Jane many creative artists on Etsy use upcycled goodies in their art. Speaking that they use vintage buttons, fabrics, old spools of thread, vintage paint brushes or easels, etc.   Both the artists and the supply sellers are on the hunt for vintage goodies.   Add the fact that vintage sellers are looking for a steal so they can resell antiques and collectibles on Etsy as well so here you go.  All these vintage and retro treasures are found at flea markets, thrift stores, and the best of all, Estate Sales.

Vintage Labels

RetroChalet recently bought a huge lot of old medical labels, using them in their art and reselling in their Etsy shop for other crafters to use.

The best source to find estate sales is a website called EstateSale.Company . This newer site lists estate sales from all over the country — pulling interesting listings from Facebook, Twitter and the web. There’s also a featured page where the user can browse some photos from upcoming sales and decide if it’s a sale they wish to attend.  Nothing like finding treasure you can make things with, resell as supplies for other crafters, or sell for vintage as well. Join the Etsy revolution, shop an EstateSale today!
