Guest Groups: 20 Summer-Inspired Vintage Wares

Vintage products have constantly remind me of summer, likely because it’s the time of year once I venture out to do exactly the most yard sale and thrift shopping. Fortunately, there are tons of online stores now that offer a fantastic curated selection of vintage merchandise just a mouse click away, any time of the year. So as an ode to summer, I’ve rounded up a number of my favorite vintage finds for the home, all motivated by the warmest period of living, relaxing and entertaining. –Alli out of Hooray


Classic Candles Candles – $20

Pretty old pitchers have several uses, and look equally as good sitting on the kitchen counter as they do pouring drinks on a hot summer day.


Antique 1856 Lowe Fern Print – $12

I can already envision this summery botanical printing grouped with other foliage-inspired art for a candy, outdoorsy feel.


Vintage Gold & Black Laquer Bowl – $14

This bowl looks like something shiny you would find at Kate Spade — but with a slightly worn, well-loved look. It might be the star of a summertime dining table setting, and could seem equally as great storing odds and ends onto a bookshelf.


Tabletop Processor – $57

A roundup of summer-inspired vintage wares could not omit the timeless retro fan. Whether or not you actually “use” it, this still adds a gorgeous nostalgic and utilitarian sense to a space and it’s a vital summer accessory.

Pottery Barn

Framed Vintage Sailboat Print – $349

Even though it’s a reprint of a classic found photograph, this bit of art still has a lot of nautical and vintage charm. I would hang it independently or with other vintage finds like postcards or keys.


Vintage Gooseneck Lamp – $45

This desk/table lamp is so damn cute, and good for small desk tables or areas. The vivid shade gives a nice pop of colour for summertime, and throughout the rest of the seasons.


Simplex Schoolhouse Wall Clock – $85

I’ve never owned one, but I’ve always had a thing for vintage schoolhouse clocks. They’re nostalgic and industrial, and enjoyable to pair with more contemporary, chic bits.


Mid Century Child’s School Chair – $52

I adore these old schoolhouse chairs: they’re industrial and hardy, and equally cute. They are kid-sized but might also be perfect for using as a small side table to get a stack of books or magazines.


Found Decanter Lamp – $498

This lamp makes a significant statement in a subtle way. I really like that every one is made of old found decanters and seems summery all year old.


Wood Basket Carrier – $29.99

This tray has numerous helpful possibilities for entertaining or for everyday usage. Not to mention it’s charming, vintage and amazingly sturdy.


World Globe – $39

I enjoy vintage globes in almost any space because they’re a fun accessory that never goes out of style. Even if you’re entertaining, they act as a conversation piece — you just can’t help but twist them and test your geography skills.


Vintage Ice Bucket – $9.50

An essential for fun, this ice bucket adds a fun retro touch that is perfect for summertime or any time of the year.


Wood Dovetailed Box – $20

Next to vintage lovers and globes, older crates are one of these items I could easily hoard — just think of all of the storage possibilities these could supply. This is the perfect size for sorting paper, email, or to even as a rustic table centerpiece.


Faux Bois and Brown Tensor Lamp – $25

How cool is this vintage desk lamp? It has a nice industrial shape, and I really like the faux bois base. It might have a big effect without taking up a whole lot of space.


Fern and Fungi Art – $18

I really like the sense of history that vintage parts of art add to a space. This one has a lovely old feel to it, and brings a bit of the outdoors in your home.


Aqua Painted Mirror – $16

What is not to love about these teeny resin lighting? They are in the ’70s and upgraded with some fresh paint. I could picture them in the guest bath, or just about any area of the house.


1950 Italian Faux Bamboo Cart – $225

This may be a tiny ornate for a few, but I believe this retro Italian cart is pretty stunning. The faux bamboo legs look modern and, mixed with some glossy glassware, it might be a wonderful piece for fun.


Vintage Golden Ceramic Dishes – $26

Both simple and fancy — I adore how tasteful these are!


Vintage Modern Aqua Ice Bucket – $28

Another ice bucket that is just too cool to pass up. I really like the shape, along with the burst of aqua is a welcome option for summer.


Copper Steel Outdoor Lighting – $39.99

I would really like to use this vintage light in so many distinct spaces — patios, front porches, all-season rooms. It has sweet, subtle details like the scalloped base frame and textured glass.
