This DC Etsy Shop Is a Mid-Century Modern Lover’s Dream

When you fall down the Etsy rabbit hole, you fall down hard. One minute you’re shopping flapper dresses and the next thing you know, you’re reminiscing over My Little Pony lunchboxes from your youth. But sometimes those binges lead you to real treats—like this local Etsy shop filled with mid-century modern treasures. Caribe Casual has only been on Etsy since 2015, but it’s stocked with pottery, lighting, and an Eames side table that I’ve been eyeing for days. Plus, because it’s local you can skip those pesky shipping fees that sometimes lean into the hundreds of dollars and prevent you from hitting the “buy” button.

Here are some of our favorite pieces:

Italian “Marmelata” Jar – $15
