Vintage Windows: 1920s Craftsman leaded stain glass windows, $30-179

Did you buy a vintage Craftsman, Spanish, California Bungalow or Mid-Century home that was unceremoniously stripped of its beautiful original details? All is not lost! My best kept secret, outside of visiting Pasadena Architectural Salvage, is a few keystrokes away!

Etsy, everyone’s favorite homemade goodies virtual superstore, also has one of the best stashes of 1900s-50s windows, knobs and lighting fixtures. Best part? Most items are in great condition and a fraction of the price you’d pay elsewhere. So go ahead, give your baby some original sparkle!

Vintage Windows
Even back then, windows came in pretty standard sizes. Craftsman homes are known for stained glass accent windows and Etsy is chock-full of them. There’s also a nice collection of early 1900s farmhouse windows and French windows that would work great in Spanish homes.

Glass door knob set, $10

Vintage Doorknobs
I’m a sucker for a glass doorknob. The ubiquitous knob was found on interior doors from the 1900s-1930s. At $10 a set, you could probably change all the knobs in your house for about $100.

1940s hand blown glass and 1950s Mid-Century pendant lamp, $75-99

Vintage Lighting
Perhaps nothing makes a bigger statement about your vintage home than lighting. Does your lighting scream IKEA? Or, does it remind visitors of a home that’s been loved for a hundred years?
