I’ve been buying with AES of LA since 2019 – I grabbed my Seventies tubular lucite espresso desk on their website for a freakin’ music – and it’s been my best-kept classic useful resource (till now, I suppose). AES focuses on auctions and property gross sales in LA (who woulda thought?) and their stock is unbelievable, high-quality, and all the time altering.

Transport or supply might be organized with AES, however I’d additionally suggest looking for comparable public sale and property sale operations in your individual neighborhood. So many of those companies have a decrease public profile as their predominant clientele are pickers, retailer house owners, and property sale fanatics…however y’all, if you will discover them, there are GREAT offers to be discovered. In case you occur to discover a comparable firm in your individual space who additionally shares their stock on-line, please drop it within the feedback – I’d like to verify them out. 🙂

Amsterdam Trendy

A brick-and-mortar classic retailer that ACTUALLY shoots and posts EVERY SINGLE PRODUCT of their stock? IT’S A LITERAL DREAM. On Amsterdam Trendy’s website, you’ll discover pages upon pages of well-curated classic lighting, furnishings, and decor (critically – there’s 23 pages of simply seating) in nice situation. (And if it’s not in nice situation, you may work immediately with Amsterdam Trendy on refinishing or reupholstering – these items that want just a little additional love are all clearly marked and pretty priced, too.)

Keep in mind these dreamy mid-century eating chairs from Sara’s home? Sourced from the one-and-only Amsterdam Trendy, child!!!


The unhealthy information: AptDeco at present solely serves the Northeast US and the San Francisco Bay-area. The excellent news: numerous you reside in these areas, so this can be an excellent alternative for you! (The opposite excellent news: perhaps if we ship them a ton of site visitors, they’ll develop sooner and develop to extra areas!)

AptDeco’s mannequin is a dream, although – all sellers and consumers are vetted AND their crew affords free white glove supply and meeting on every order. They measure every merchandise upon pickup, alert the client to any variations between the itemizing and the precise product (so if there’s an unmentioned scratch or if the piece is even an inch greater, you’ll be capable of again out painlessly). It’s the classic shopping for resolution we’d like proper now and I CAN’T WAIT TIL THEY’RE IN LA.


I imply…you already comprehend it. I already comprehend it. All of us already comprehend it. However, like, how might I write a submit about the most effective on-line classic websites and not embody Chairish? As they’ve scaled, their choices have grown, too – now you can discover a ton of SUPER reasonably priced decor (I rounded up my under-$50 picks a number of months again) together with one-of-a-kind items from sellers and common people worldwide. Their search can’t be overwhelmed, both – with the ability to kind by dimensions is INCREDIBLY useful.

Their delivery prices have come down a TON, too – Chairish’s particular charges nearly all the time beat the non-public delivery quotes I obtain – and a bunch of sellers have arrange their accounts to immediately settle for affords which can be 20-30% off the listed value (that’s a professional tip, straight from me to you!). In case you’re on the hunt for the proper ending piece, poke round Chairish for a second – you could simply discover it 🙂 (Working example: the crimson balloon chair from Em’s lounge, which later discovered a second life on this teen bed room. SO GOOD.)


Earlier than beginning at EHD, I spent a couple of yr flipping rugs and furnishings on Craigslist to pay the payments (actually leaned into the entire #funemployed factor, you realize? You’ll be able to compensate for the entire saga right here, if you’d like!). Whereas the stock has dropped off just a little bit – Fb Market is kiiiiiinda consuming Craigslist’s lunch with regards to secondhand residence items – there are nonetheless a number of steals to be discovered! I guess it’s been a minute because you final checked the furnishings listings…who is aware of what may very well be sitting there, ready for ya?


eBay: the ultimate frontier. It’s the web’s authentic public sale website (launched in September 1995, are you able to consider?!) and in case you’ve by no means given it a superb look, you could be lacking out. They’ve majorly upgraded the expertise over the previous couple of years and sellers at the moment are in a position to provide unique offers to those that have favorited their gadgets – like, I just lately received an electronic mail from a vendor providing me 60% off the value listed on eBay. INCREDIBLE. Begin saving your favourite gadgets and let the reductions roll in, child! (And when you’re at it, you may also seize deeply discounted new gadgets – keep in mind when Sara adorned her complete residence for Halloween with eBay finds? It’s a treasure trove proper below our noses, guys!!!)


I imply…Etsy is just about the gold commonplace of classic buying on the web, IMO. The search performance is superb AND there’s nonetheless some stage of serendipity – like, is there something higher than stumbling upon an ambiguously-titled desk or chair that’s priced WAY beneath market worth?

In case you want a jumping-off level, Ryann shared a number of (or, like, 46 – that’s a number of, proper?) of our all-time favourite Etsy sellers proper right here.

All the pieces However the Home

Yesterday truly marked my fifth anniversary of buying with All the pieces However The Home – this Navahand rug was my first buy of many and whereas it’s not a match for my present residence (it’s chillin’ in my closet as we communicate), I don’t assume I’ll ever be capable of half with it. (It doesn’t harm that the rug appraised for about 6x the acquisition value, both. :))

Whereas the delivery prices can get just a little excessive, the HUGE financial savings on furnishings and decor greater than make up for it (and in case you’re out there for a new-to-you classic rug or piece of artwork, there’s no higher website). I nonetheless keep in mind how excited I used to be to seize this lithograph for $18 – the identical piece is promoting on eBay proper now for, uh, WAY MORE. New auctions are launched day by day and the stylistically numerous stock is REALLY GOOD, guys. EBTH is considered one of my favourite apps to cruise each evening earlier than mattress – can’t suggest it sufficient.

Fb Market

Today, that is the place I’ve essentially the most luck. I’ve written at nice size (understatement of the century, in all probability) about the most effective ideas/tips/search phrases to actually maximize your FB Market buying expertise, so go give {that a} lil’ look in case you REALLY wanna immerse your self within the ~classic fan membership~.


First: yeah, WE’RE ALL TIRED OF REELS. Second: OMG. The proliferation of Instagram reels has made my love of vintage-sourcing on Instagram an absolute NIGHTMARE. Third: to amp up your IG expertise, go to Chairish, hit an arbitrary class (“furnishings” is nice), tighten up your search radius (I like 50-100 miles, however generally I am going just a little additional than that), and see if any of the sellers whose stock appeals to you occur to have an Instagram web page. Take a look at who they’re following, too – I’ve a finsta (faux Instagram) that completely follows classic sellers and it’s a very enjoyable feed to scroll.

If that looks like an excessive amount of work (as a result of, uh, it kinda is), I’ve additionally collected a bunch of my favourite classic IG accounts proper right here – perhaps it’s time for an replace to that submit?

Jayson Residence

BIG SWOON. Do not forget that attractive classic chaise from Em’s lounge? It was sourced by the wonderful people from Jayson Residence and y’all – THEY HAVE GREAT FINDS. The curation right here is so spectacular and there’s one thing for each fashion – classic shearling sofas, mahogany cabinets, rattan settees, African stools, Suzani textiles, framed artwork…it’s all in right here. (As a aspect word, Jayson Residence’s enormous summer season sale ends on 8/1 – extremely suggest giving it a scroll earlier than it’s over! There’s tons of eye sweet, even in case you’re not out there for something specifically.)

We’re enormous followers of Kaiyo over right here – it’s the place Ryann sourced that unbelievable gingham wingback chair in her lounge. They began out in New York, however they’ve just lately expanded to LA and y’all – I’M EXCITED ABOUT IT, from a shopping for AND promoting perspective. As a vendor, you submit images to Kaiyo and in case your items are accepted, they’ll come and decide issues up for you. (Anybody who has ever posted a furnishings itemizing with a caveat like, “it’s essential to carry this out, please deliver assist to carry it” after which had a purchaser present up like, “I don’t have any assist, I assumed you and I might carry this 300 lb credenza collectively,” – REJOICE. NO MORE TOMFOOLERY. Kaiyo will simply deal with it. Plus – and that is my favourite half – you may decide to get an instantaneous money provide after your items have been picked up OR you may wait and receives a commission out after your piece sells (like consignment for the twenty first century).

And from a purchaser’s perspective, each piece is inspected and cleaned, and delivered with white glove service. Enormous, enormous, enormous fan of this enterprise mannequin. We’re fairly spoiled with these superb companies out on the coasts – hope that they will make their means inland quickly!


WELCOME TO THE RABBIT HOLE. I’ve a crippling LiveAuctioneers dependancy and I’m not sorry!!! Their tagline is “let’s go treasure-hunting” and WOW, THAT COPY IS SPOT ON. I recommend doing a superb quantity of preparation earlier than leaping into any auctions – like, you must register for each, plan your max bid, calculate the quantity you’re prepared to spend on purchaser’s premiums (that’s the public sale home’s lower), put out feelers for delivery prices, and so on. – however the work is well worth the reward. Over time, you’ll uncover your favourite auctioneers and public sale homes (Billings‘ quarterly auctions are my private favourite!) and it’s simply REALLY FUN. (Ought to we do a much bigger submit on auctions? Asking for myself, as a result of like…I kinda wanna write extra about this entire course of.)


That is LA’s best-kept secret and I can title at the very least one VERY costly classic retailer who used to supply A LOT OF INVENTORY from Loveseat. Like, A LOT OF INVENTORY. (I received’t title names, however like…if you wish to take a guess, perhaps you’ll be proper?) Loveseat began out in LA, expanded to San Diego, and their auctions at the moment are accessible down in San Antonio and Austin, too.

Loveseat’s grown to supply primarily useless inventory or returned gadgets (so like, in case you’re within the temper for a brand new $80 couch or $40 fridge, that is completely the location for you – you’re welcome for the tip) however they do nonetheless sometimes have some superior classic and one-of-a-kind items up on consignment. Test-in as soon as every week and see what’s listed. There are some actually spectacular offers available, you realize?


I gotta be trustworthy: I’m reluctantly posting about OfferUp. The app is sort of a nightmare, the advertisements are bizarre, the spam listings can get uncontrolled, and the consumer expertise is sort of…unhealthy? However man, there are some steals buried on there – I’m speaking $19 marketing campaign nightstands, $10 wrought iron chairs, $100 eating units, and extra. Proceed at your individual danger. (I normally have enjoyable looking for about, uh, 10 minutes, earlier than rage quitting after seeing native furnishings shops spamming sofas in all places. Generally I discover one thing nice; different instances, I pressure shut the app and contemplate chucking my cellphone throughout the room. Am I doing an excellent job of promoting OfferUp? Are you excited to strive it???)

One King’s Lane

So, uh, One King’s Lane classic choice isn’t low-cost. It’s stocked filled with merchandise from distributors who know what they’ve and who’ve priced these objects accordingly…so in case you’re on the hunt for a deal, this is probably not the most effective website for you.

It’s like Em’s basic recommendation: you may’t have low-cost, quick, AND good. You’ll be capable of seize stunning, ready-to-ship items right here – however you will have a little bit of flexibility in your funds (that’s my good, euphemistic means of being like “yo, stuff right here prices like, $7,000“). If you’re one of many people who’s been blessed with a versatile funds, although, GO WILD. It’s actually enjoyable to purchase a bit from a educated vendor who can educate you one thing about the place your furnishings resided beforehand, you realize?


Pamono, pre-August 2021: Europe’s model of Chairish. Pamono, post-August 2021: acquired by Chairish. You might have seen a proliferation of European sellers on Chairish over the previous few months, and this is the reason. That stated, the OG Pamono website is an actual deal with – it’s SO academic (the content material on the entrance web page is gorgeous AND informative!), the structure is simple to make use of, customs charges are included within the costs, and delivery charges are clearly acknowledged upfront (it averages out to about $900 bucks to get furnishings from Europe to LA, which is definitely a reasonably spectacular deal – my uShip account might by no means compete!!!).

In case you’re somebody who loves tendencies, I can’t suggest Pamono extremely sufficient – it’s a pleasant little classic microcosm the place you may get an actual really feel for what’s arising subsequent. There are such a lot of listings on Chairish that these little Euro-centric items can get misplaced, so it’s very nice that they’ve their very own place to shine. (And in case you’re attempting to nail your designer vocab, there’s really no higher place to study. Huge fan!)

HELLO, FRIEND. Rejuvenation relaunched their Antiques and Classic class earlier this yr and I couldn’t be extra excited – might you think about the affect it’d have if extra main retailers devoted time and manpower to preservation? Like, Rejuvenation’s restoration studio (a crew!!! For classic!!!) restores over 3,000 vintage and classic items a yr – it’s a reasonably gargantuan endeavor and IT’S SO COOL.

There’s one thing for everybody right here – rugs, lighting, furnishings, and extra – and in case you’ve been staying up-to-date with Em’s Instagram tales, you could have seen that she’s been digging across the Rejuvenation warehouse. She’s sourced a number of SUPER particular items from the antiques and classic part and I can’t look ahead to y’all to see how she kinds them within the Farmhouse…we’re all in for a deal with. 🙂

Ruby Lane

Ruby Lane is sort of like Chairish with a twist – when you can’t make a proposal on a bit immediately on their website, however you can ship a word to the seller immediately to barter a deal. As an added bonus, a number of retailers additionally provide free delivery (they’ll word this within the merchandise description) and layaway plans (the period of time on these varies, but it surely’s a pleasant choice!).

Objects on Ruby Lane are usually fairly pretty priced (so that you’re in all probability not going to have a type of “holy crap, I simply discovered a $4,000 desk for $60 bucks!” moments) and the UI can really feel just a little dated, but it surely’s nonetheless an excellent useful resource to discover. (And once more, in case you’re a type of people with a versatile funds…properly, Ruby Lane’s your oyster, pal. Take pleasure in!)

Scout Design Studio

SIGH. That is one other considered one of my secret sources and I’m 50% excited to share it and 50% unhappy that I’m rising competitors for myself. C’EST LA VIE. I’ve lengthy liked Scout Design Studio for his or her new furnishings and decor items (like, that completely wiiiild Greek bust in my lavatory was a Scout buy!) however their classic part is one thing else.

We’ve received burl case items (which can be extra reasonably priced than their fashionable counterparts!), brightly-lacquered credenzas and sideboards, basic marble commodes, consoles, artwork, and SO MUCH MORE. All the pieces might be custom-made, too – I extremely suggest taking pictures them a comply with on Instagram to see their finds as they arrive. Scout does an excellent job of toeing the road between reasonably priced and out of attain, too – nothing right here is affordable, however items do really feel actually pretty priced. I’m saving up for a number of issues as we communicate!!

Sotheby’s Residence

I imply…it’s Sotheby’s, guys. $17,000 tapestries, $8,000 candlesticks, $150,000 rugs, $87,000 water pitchers…you get it, proper? Pour your self a pleasant (or, uh, common) glass of wine (I’ll have the $11 Sauv Blanc from the Walgreens subsequent to my home, thanks #Nobilo4ever), snuggle up on the sofa with an iPad, and luxuriate in a enjoyable little escapist scroll.

City Americana

THE BEST ANTIQUE MALL ON THE INTERNET. (Except you realize a greater one, during which case – I’m all ears, child!!! Lay it on me!!) We’ve truly visited City Americana as a crew – it was considered one of our final outings earlier than Em headed as much as Oregon – and it’s considered one of my favourite spots within the LA space.

City Americana does a REALLY spectacular job of documenting all of the stock in its facility. It’s a reasonably gargantuan endeavor (particularly when you will have that many little retailers, stuffed with continually shifting items!) and I simply can’t consider one other mall that places this a lot care and energy into supporting its distributors. Additionally, they’ve supply accessible inside a 100-mile radius AND they’re lightning quick at pulling up delivery quotes! Properly-priced items bought by very nice and considerate individuals? Completed. I AM A HUGE FAN. 1 MILLION STARS FROM ME.


Final however not least: our candy, dependable, high-end good friend. You’ve seen Em’s newest 1stDibs discover – that candy, patinated Swedish blue cupboard – and there’s WAY extra the place that got here from. I’ve just lately develop into obsessive about their Public sale part as there are some superior offers to be discovered (who knew?!) however my actual favourite web page is their iconic designs part, which is a veritable treasure trove of well-known merchandise – I deal with it just like the random article part on Wikipedia, the place I arbitrarily click on on a product title after which get to study all about its historical past (and its pricing). It’s enjoyable! It’s free! I prefer it!

THAT’S ALL SHE WROTE. (“Thank God,” – you, in all probability, after making your means via this entire novel. We’re means over 3,000 phrases, which is, uh, a LOT.) Anybody have any ideas? Emotions? Good Etsy retailers to suggest? A favourite property sale enterprise, maybe? A vintage-selling Instagram account you like to comply with? I’M ALL EARS, CUTIES. Comfortable Friday – see ya down there, yeah?? xx
