The Vermodernist Etsy Round-up: Shop with No Regretsy!

Vermonters are known for their diehard support of local businesses and a general appreciation for the "localvore" movement.  A great way to shop local for all of your mod and vintage needs is to hit up Vermont shops on Etsy.  Here are just a few shops we've had our eye on that will hopefully ensure that you shop with no regret-sy.

The Getup Vintage
Boasting two physical locations in Vermont, 27 Langdon street in Montpelier and 170 Bank street in Burlington, The Getup Vintage Etsy shop features clothes for both men and women (with the bulk of the items being for women) along with shoes, purses, and a few sundry items.

This little number particularly caught my eye and, at the time of writing this post, it is still available for purchase:


This Etsy shop is run by a Burlington-based couple and features a variety of vintage items including signage, barware, kitchenware, jewelry, some lighting and industrial pieces as well. The shop also takes requests for custom items so if there's something you've been looking for and haven't found they may be able to help!

Check out this great mid-century cocktail shaker up for grabs:

Etsy has always been a place for people to sell their handmade-wares. Nicole's Threads is based in Johnson, Vermont and sells retro-inspired handmade shirts, dresses and jewelry using vintage and upcycled fabrics. There are some great color, pattern and style options.

I particularly liked this one that would be great for spring:

When you're cooking your retro meals, a fun apron will complete the scene and Susannah Allen creates handmade aprons in a variety of styles from fabulous vintage fabrics. Based out of northern Vermont, I feel that Lucy and Ethel could've hatched a good scheme wearing something like this:


Vermont-based Vintage Vertigo has a hodge podge of retro fabulousness. There are some accessories, toys, books, and housewares. However these particularly caught my eye. I'd never seen 1950s electric footwear warmer/dryers!


If you've never shopped on Etsy before, you can narrow your search for items based on geographic location, type (vintage, handmade, etc.) and payment works similar to eBay and other shopping sites. Etsy sellers are also notoriously great with their shipping and packaging often throwing in fun little bonus items just as an added surprise.

Enjoy shopping local without having to leave the locality of your living room and help support some fellow Vermodernists!
