One challenge of DIYing your own flowers for your wedding is coming up with vases or containers in which to display them. The cost of renting vases is often included in florists’ fees, but without a florist, you have to figure out where to buy or rent them yourself. Luckily, I have a secret weapon. My lovely and talented mom is a vintage reseller who has sold literally thousands of items from her Etsy shop and through local sales groups. She has the process of finding the best stuff down to a science, so I knew she was the right girl for the job.

I told Momma T that I wanted to amass a collection of milk glass vases to go with our vintage theme,上班时光, and within a few months, she had collected more than we could ever need! She has also been collecting vintage odds and ends like books, picture frames, suitcases, and more, all that I will share as they come together. Vintage details can add a lot of character to wedding displays, so I asked her if she would share some of her vintage hunting wisdom with you all! She was glad to provide the following tips—Momma T, welcome to the hive!

There are two basic approaches to finding vintage goods for your wedding. The approach you take will depend on your type. Are you a “shopper” or a “digger”? A shopper enjoys browsing artfully arranged selections of merchandise. Shoppers know what to expect to find in a particular shop. A digger delights in stopping along the way wherever a trove of junk may be found. Diggers know there’s treasure somewhere in that heap. Either way, there are tricks to finding the fabulous pieces that will make your wedding special without breaking the bank.

Tips for Shoppers

Etsy

If you’ve gotten to the point of planning a wedding, you probably already know about Etsy. It’s the go-to for awesome art and hand-crafted everything. But did you know it is THE place for vintage? You’ll find an astronomical selection at great prices posted by thousands of vintage sellers.

Individual Etsy shops may specialize in a particular type of item, for instance milk glass, hankies, or lace doilies. Others will carry an eclectic mix that may inspire you. Use the search to zero in on your specific needs and contact the seller with questions before buying. If you find a single seller has several items you’d like, it doesn’t hurt to ask if they have a multiple item discount. Etsy is easy shopping on your lunch hour or during a late-night insomnia spell.

Local Antique Markets

These markets may be permanent, mall-type businesses or a one-day event. Both types will bring you a large number of dealers in a single location. Prices will vary depending on the dealer, and haggling may be accepted. You should always allow plenty of time to shop an antique market and bring a friend to help carry your purchases!

Antique Shops

Don’t be afraid to check out a fancy looking antique shop. Amongst the high-end furniture, you may find some lower priced tchotchkes. High-end dealers are usually glad to get rid of the little odds and ends and may give you a great deal if you find a few items to combine.

Wedding Specific Marketplaces

Many of these exist online, like the hive’s own Weddingbee Classifieds. These are a good way to find curated items that are often “wedding ready,” but be ready to pay a premium for a ready-made collection. Prices are often higher here than in other locations. Keep in mind that shipping charges are always a factor when ordering online!

Tips for Diggers

Yard Sales

Check Craigslist for sales in your area—make a plan to get up nice and early on Saturday to hit several sales. Be ready to go off your route if you see signs for another sale! Yard sales are always hit or miss, but worth the effort when you find the perfect piece for a great price. Yard sales are a great place to find vases, glassware, linens, and the unexpected!

Flea Markets

Again, get there early! Plan to spend some time and dig, dig, dig! Prices are always negotiable, so put on your bargaining hat and a smile. Shop flea markets for suitcases, frames, and unique pieces to repurpose.

Thrift Shops

Thrift shops can be a bonanza or a bust, so try to stop in often and see what’s new. Besides the bigger Goodwill or Salvation Army type stores, look for small charity or church shops. Small shops usually have limited hours, so you’ll have to schedule your visits. Most thrift shops have bargain days and special sales, so ask for the schedule. If you’re a student ask if there’s a student discount. Try talking to other patrons—they may know of more thrift shops in the area. Diggers unite! Thrift shops may be a good source for tablecloths, glassware, and silver-plated pieces.

Facebook

Facebook groups are a growing way of buying and selling. Look for groups in your area by searching your town name and “yard sale,” “garage sale,” or just “sale” in the Facebook search. Since groups can be started by anyone, you may find several. There may even be very specific sales groups in your area for “vintage” or “wedding” specific goods. Once you find a group, you can post and ask about other area groups. Join them all! You can always quit a group later if it doesn’t suit you. Group members can scroll through the offerings like a more intimate version of Craigslist. Since the sellers post under their Facebook profiles, it’s not as anonymous as Craigs. You can get to know some of the regulars and who sells the type of things you need. A unique perk to these groups is there’s often the opportunity to post ISO (in search of) for specific items. You’ll have to pick up the items you buy this way, so find out where the seller is located before committing, and of course use caution when meeting.

So what do you think—are you a shopper or a digger?
