Etsy can be overwhelming and you might sometimes think, How many more distressed wood "Believe" signs do I have to search through to get to the good stuff? One tip? We like to get specific with our search terms and so "vintage Scandinavian" or "vintage Danish/Norwegian/Finnish/etc." are phrases we often use. And they deliver: There is so much vintage Scandi-cool goodness on Etsy. Here are some pieces we found that are so awesome, we almost kept them secret.

Can't get over the amazing color of this 1960s glass vase.

This glowing amber trio of lights is just what your empty living room corner needs.

We love the color scheme on these 1970s retro coffee cups by Swedish ceramics designer Margareta Hennix. (Note that the listing is for one cup; the vendor is selling each piece of the set separately.)

Gah! These egg warmers are so cute! The tops are like little cotton socks for boiled eggs.

Gotta have some teak in there somewhere.

Classy and classic.

We feel happier just looking at this mug. Perfect for making glum winter days warmer.
