When Etsy launched its #StandWithSmall campaign to support the small businesses and independent creatives on their platform, we had to give some of our favorite retro Etsy shops a shoutout. You can #StandWithSmall, help out digital mom and pop shops, and spiff up wherever you’re sheltering-in-place when you buy home decor on Etsy.

Please be sure to check shipping schedules and return policies before purchasing, as these things may have changed due to coronavirus restrictions.

Atomic Ranch curates the best of Mid Century Modern Design to share with our readers. Some of the products you’ll see featured in this story are affiliate links, which means that if you click through and make a purchase, AR will earn a small commission at no extra cost to you.

The Dynamo Kitchen Clock

Made of solid teak and cast resin, this funky little number is practically guaranteed to be cooler than any clock you grew up with. It’s ready to buy in aqua or orange, but the seller also has included a note in the product description that potential buyers can get in touch if they have a different color combination in mind.

The Sydney II

Narrowing the gorgeous options down to showcase one piece by Modern Retrograde is hard, but ultimately rewarding work. Go ahead, you try it! And then report back and tell us what you fell in love with. Over here, we’re keen on the color palette and perfect-for-corners narrow shape of the Sydney II.

Vintage Pyrex Atomic Eye Inspired Hand Printed Tea Towel

From one Pyrex lover to another, how cute are these? The “Atomic Eyes” print is a personal favorite, but we’re willing to bet that StampHaus probably has your favorite vintage Pyrex pattern too. There’s even a mix and match option if you’re torn between “Butterprint” and “Friendship.”

Mint Green Semi Flush Ceiling Light

Spending so much time at home means those little things we didn’t like (dome-shaped flush-mount lighting) have become big fixations we can’t live with anymore. Obviously, an upgrade is in order. Stop and shop IlluminateVintage for lovely lights that have a vintage vibe.

Pug in the Living Room

Every single print by artist Linda Tillman is full of nostalgia, color and iconic designs. There’s also a good chance you’ll find a pet featured somewhere in the composition. We fell for this adorable pug and the Curtis Jere Birds in Flight wall sculpture, but you’ll want to browse through her work to find your favorite breed or MCM motif.

The Nellie Side Tables (Pair)

Mid Century Modern design and the Amish are two concepts that rarely make sense together, but Modern Cre8ive makes it work. The Nellie side tables are handmade of solid black walnut locally sourced in Amish country. In addition to shopping a small business that uses local sources, you can feel extra good about your purchase knowing that a portion of profits are donated to Direct Relief, Charity:Water and Save The Children.

Retro Geometric Wallpaper

Wallpaper is the home-improvement equivalent of bread making. Challenging, but not impossible if you follow the directions. It’s a feast for the eyes and wallpaper will last longer. We love the groovy geometry in the patterns available at CrashPadDesigns.
