Before the holiday rush and stocking up on gifts for others, why not give yourself a treat?
Fall is the perfect time to find vintage and handmade treasures that make your kitchen, closet, or desk a little more festive. And fall festivity has something about it, doesn’t it? It’s a little more rustic, a little more spooky, a little more academic and nostalgic… 🍎
I rounded up some of my favorite autumnal items on Etsy right now, including vintage and handmade, so you can shop small and shop ethically when sourcing your next special piece! Whether it’s a wool plaid skirt or a set of earth-toned kitchenware, I hope you’ll find something you love below.
Here are 13 flawless fall finds on Etsy right now…
Download the template and create your own tunning celestial ornaments! A simple print, snip & glue, and your space will be a bit more magical. Note: This is a downloadable file and not a physical product.
A sleek and stylish handmade lightweight earring with a one-of-a-kind look created during the hand-crafting process. Avery designs her pieces to be versatile enough to wear everywhere.
Is there anything more charming than a brass apple? Place it on your desk, on your windowsill, or anywhere else you please (I actually have one of these on my desk, too). It looks especially sweet styled with this stack of vintage books.
Whether you display it as an aesthetic accessory or get sudsy in the bath (great for stress relief), this aromatic soap bar is the perfect fall treat. Includes notes of clary sage, orange blossoms, lavender, hemp oil, and more.
A set of neutrally hued mixing bowls in a vintage color palette that’s very much become a modern ~aesthetic~. They’re in great condition and would look simply sweet in any cupboard.
Who doesn’t need a luxe blouse in their wardrobe? This drapey dream in a smooth champagne hue can be dressed up with luxe chains and worn with dress pants or jeans. I love the versatility of a piece like this, especially for fall layering.
Shopping around Etsy for masks is officially a hobby of mine, and I love Trium’s luxurious and stylish options. They’re made in natural linen with cotton lining and include a luxe little chain to keep around your neck.
Academia vibes are hot right now… but aren’t wool plaid skirts always a good idea? Fall is the perfect time to get nostalgic with school-inspired looks, from preppy cardigans to mary Janes.
Give your desk a rustic steampunk makeover reminiscent of your favorite spooky detective show. Sherlock, anyone? This handcrafted desk organizer is also a lamp and docking station, making it a highly functional accent.
Let’s get one thing straight: There’s no age limit for loving stickers! If you’re not stocking up on cute fall stickers that make you incredibly happy, what are you doing? (Sorry, I have strong feelings about sticker collecting…)
Confession: Fall makes me want to go back to school, spend hours studying new things, and fill my desk with rustic office supplies! I bought three vintage clipboards to display my goals for the season—and give me a writing surface when I’m on the couch scribbling my to-do lists.
With a sublime earth tone color scheme, these adorable mugs are as appetizing as the coffee, cider, and cocoa you can drink out of them. I also love this Etsy shop! I purchased some wall decor from them in July.
This book might be in Russian, but you needn’t understand all of the words to appreciate the beautiful illustrations. Mushrooms are a quintessential element of woodland fall aesthetic. You can scan, print and frame these pages or keep this on the coffee table as a conversation piece.
Buy these things …before I do! 😉
