Etsy.com – Affordable MCM for EVERYONE

In retrospect to my last blog, (Vintique-New Favorite Destination) it wasn’t exactly fair to my readers who are not southern Californians. I’m not patting myself on the back here, but I have readers in Spain, Alaska and Ireland for goodness sake! Certainly people outside of my direct area would love to know where they can get affordable MCM stuff too! I would not like to be known as yet another egocentric American. For my loyal readers near and far, ’tis for you a lucky day indeed. Behold!  There is something called Etsy.com. Anything you can imagine wanting is on Etsy.com.  Generally and comparatively speaking, I find Etsy prices to be lower than that of Ebay’s. Etsy is the new black my MCM friends…so jump on the bandwagon and let’s go for a ride!

Did you say you wanted to refinish some crusty old chairs? Check out AtomicLivinVintage for amazing retro fabrics.

You need legendary Eames chairs in electric blue? Search Eames Chairs or lookup LustFoundVintage. You’re welcome. (These are NOT cheap, but if you’re a collector, I will assume you’ve got more means than I. Good for you.)

What’s that you say? You need to buy your favorite MCM blogger Franciscan Atomic Starburst Cream and Sugar Set for Christmas because you know she’d love them and know they’d match her pretty new plate? $30 dolla will make her holla! Check out TheCottageCheese.

Do you have boobs like Joan from Mad Men and really need a red-hot MCM dress to wrap them like presents for the upcoming holiday season? You’re in luck at VintageBeats. There ain’t no shame in your game….work it, girl. I’m jealous.

Do you have a best friend who knows Disney’s “We are Siamese if you please..” by heart? I know I do! Here’s vintage Siamese wall art for you crazy cat people. See Thrifitti. Like when hear baby cry, there be milk nearby. Enter MIDOBSESS at checkout and get a 10% discount for midcenturyobsession readers! Thanks, Thrifitti!

So do it! You know you want to. Do it. Do it. Do it. Go to Etsy.com and enter mid-century  _ whatever__. I can tell you….it will be there.

About midcenturyobsession

My love for midcentury surfaced after inheriting a couple pieces of my very fashionable grandmother's MCM furniture. I'd always loved clean lines...and became obsessed. I'm currently in the process of redoing our entire home in Mid Century style. My husband would tell you "She's off her head." (Irish-speak for NUTS.) I am the wife of a Dubliner, a mother to an adorable little boy and two clownish french bulldogs Pig and Pearl. I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice. If there is anything I learned earning my degree, it was that I didn't want to pursue criminal justice. My heart just wasn't in it. I played 2 years of volleyball on a full scholarship and graduated a 4 year college in 3 years. I lived in Dallas for a very long time and left friends behind to be closer to family for my son. A native Californian, I have to say it's great to be back home.

  2. We are Siamese if you please
    We are Siamese if you don’t please
    Now we’re looking over our new domicile
    If we like we stay for maybe quite a while

    Do you see that a thing swimming round and round
    Maybe we can reaching in and make it drown
    If we sneaking up upon it carefully
    There will be head for you a tail for me

    Do you hear what I hear a baby cry
    Where we finding baby there be milk near by
    If we look in baby buggy there could be
    Plenty of milk for you and also some for me

    Totally cute. Love the tee-tiny reading room. I bet it smells delicious. If only they had a recently used pencil sharpener…
