Ten Affordable Etsy Finds For Your Small Apartment

Confession: I fell down a long, dark Etsy wormhole last night. It began at 11pm, when I was casually browsing for an affordable étagère before bed. Next thing I knew it was 2am and I was rapidly scrolling, squinting at my iPhone through one strong eye with such determination that you'd think hunting for vintage decor was either an obscure Olympic event or a recent medical discovery promised to reverse the signs of aging. 

Some time around midnight I had depleted my spending allowance for the month (yes, I have some self control) on a rad Danish coffee set, so I'm leaving it to YOU to scoop up the other gems I discovered.
