November 19, 2013Tuesday Etsy Roundup – The Vintage Western Edition
by Eartha Kitsch
I have a bit of a fascination with old timey Western items and even though I live in Nashville, they’re not as rampant here as one would think. Sometimes (yes, oftentimes) I find myself turning to the wonderful world of Etsy to find the best Western themed treasures. I’d like to share some of those with you this week. From Country and Western to just plain old Western, it’s all a-okay with me!
First up, this glorious wallpaper from seller EdgarandEdgar:
Everything about this wallpaper is dead-on perfect Western but I especially like the lasso detail running throughout. The seller is offering the paper by the yard and I so wish I had somewhere to use this. It would even be pretty framed. Hmm..something to think about and you know that I will!
Next up, a pretty little dancing dress from seller MollysVarious:
Did you just hear me let out a yodel? I loooove this dress. The pattern and the full skirt are wonderful as are the pretty colors. It’s made by H Bar C who has made some incredible Western clothing items throughout the decades. I’d be twirling ’til the cows come home in this one!
And speaking of cows, how about something for the wee cowpokes from seller SanDiegoJewelryShop:
Have a look at this incredible deadstock boy’s shirt and pants set! It’s absolutely gorgeous and still has the original manufacturer’s tags and price tags on it. I don’t have any wee ones but someone please buy this set for your child to wear in the Christmas pictures this year. I mean, I’m pretty sure it would never be topped.
How about something for a tiny cowgirl from seller PotatoCakeVintage?
Come on! How much more adorable can you get? I love this bandana print and the blue ruffled smock comes off to reveal an equally cute little red dress. If I had a little girl in the family, this one would be in full wardrobe rotation.
Next up, some cool enamelware from seller boiven628:
I’m pretty infatuated with this set of plates. My Mom has a huge set of these dishes and she uses them only on Thanksgiving Day and let me tell you – these plates are large so they can really be heaped high with vittles! I’m dying to have my own set of these for my little ranch.
Another great Western themed item that I found is from seller HuntersAlley:
Soooo cute, this coatrack! He’s so cheerful looking too! He makes me wish that I had a spare corner in my entry hall as he’d be a great help in corralling all of those wayward coats that seem to gather there.
Alright, I can obviously go on and on about Western pieces all day and night but since we’re headed towards the holiday season, I’ll leave you with this final piece from seller thetrendykitchen:
Straight out of Dixie Dude Ranch comes Santa Cowboy! Consider my collector’s mind blown because this one happily combines two of my favorite things: Western items and Christmas. Wheee! I heart this guy and his overly rosy cheeks.
