9 of the best online vintage marketplaces to follow on Instagram

Though Instagram is still a place to share your selfies, candids and photo dumps, for the entrepreneurially-minded, it’s also become an online destination for launching and running a business. Recently, many online vintage marketplaces have cropped up on Instagram, using the social media platform to sell handpicked secondhand gems.

While some of these use Instagram purely for marketing (so you’ll be redirected to their website or Etsy page to actually buy anything), other vintage and antique brands are taking it one step further and selling their found treasures purely through Instagram – and then the race is on for who can rush to the seller’s DMs the fastest to nab the latest pretty, shiny trinket or a stunning piece of mid-century furniture.

But who has the best vintage gems? We’ve rounded up nine of the best accounts to follow on Instagram to make sure you’re seeing the best vintage and antique pieces first.

If coloured (particularly pink and blush) glassware is your thing, FINNA is the place for you. From plates, bowls and wine glasses to trinket dishes, candlesticks and vases, it’s all here, dating as far back as the 1890s – and for really decent prices, too.

Rosemary & Peach

Every piece for sale by Rosemary & Peach gets listed on the brand’s Instagram grid with pricing and sizes – and what a joyous grid to scroll through it is. Colourful painted ceramic pieces (particularly hailing from Spain and Portugal) make up the majority of R&P’s stock – when you see a piece (or several) that you like, just send a DM and it’ll be marked as sold as soon as your payment clears.

Grandma’s Attic

Tastefully selected vintage ceramic and glass homeware fill the grid of Grandma’s Attic, which you can shop straight from Instagram.
