Antique pieces are hard to find. You’d have to hit the flea market or go to specialty stores just to hunt for the authentic ones. And for some cases, antique stores and sellers are even harder to find. That’s why online shopping is a godsend. It brings you almost everything you’re looking for without you having to leave your comfort zone.

List of Online Antique Stores
So if you’re into vintage shopping, you’re in luck. We’ve rounded the internet with this complete list of online antique stores for your convenience.
1. Amazon: If you are looking to buy or sell antiques online, one of the best places to start is Amazon. This website offers a range of antiques for buyers to choose. Some of the most interesting pieces of antiques you can find on Amazon include a flower carved wooden jewelry storage box, a HALONA bronze Victorian Pendant necklace with SWAROVSKI Icicle crystal and a none functioning metal phone with a receiver and microphone. All these are great items with a priceless value that you can add to your collection. The website also allows sellers to list their collectible items for sale at a price of their choice.
2.Ruby Lane: Another great place where to buy collectibles online is Ruby Lane. Unlike Amazon, Ebay, Craiglist and other websites that deal in endless ranges of other products, this website specializes particularly in antiques. Right now, top featured collectibles on the site include a beautiful antique shell cameo of Hebe and the Eagle, a Masriera neck ring and other pieces. All the items above are legitimate and can be tested to prove.
3.Webstore: Webstore is an upcoming online auctione store. However, this site functions in the same way as Amazon, Ebay and other similar sites do in terms of the items being offered. It lists a wide range of items besides antiques and collectibles. Webstore is a great market place for buyers and sellers alike.
Sellers can list their items on it for auctioning. Then buyers will place their offers where the highest bidder is the one who will take home that item. This is a great place to obtain priceless antiques and collectibles. Examples of antiques listed on there currently include a classic silver cigarette case, a vintage tapestry handbag and a rare old antique candle holder painted brown.
4. Artfire: Although Artifire lists items under 6 different categories including jewelry,entertainment, craft supplies and tools, artpieces are the most common offerings here. The website gives talented artists from around the world an opportunity to display their pieces of artwork. For buyers, it is a great place where to find classic handmade jewelry and other fantastic collectibles.
One very hot item on there right now is a sunset pelican diamond glass pendant made of Iridescent art glass and sterling silver and believed to be from the Victorian era. Made for gifting purposes, this priceless pendant can be another great addition to your antique collection. There is also a classic handmade champagne bottle opener, which is believed to be more than 50 years old, listed on the site.
5. Etsy: There is no doubt about the fact that Etsy is another great online destination for a wide range of vintage items. Vintage features two special categories i.e Art & Collectibles as well as vintage. Clicking on the art&collectibles tab opens a page with fantastic pieces of vintage items. From amazing sculptures and paintings to beautiful fiber arts and memorabilia, this page offers an endless list of vintage items.
If you want objects that are even more vintage than these, all you have got to do is click on the vintage tab, which is located at the far right end of the top of the home page. This will take you to a page with even more diverse range of classic objects that you can add to your antique collection. From vintage floor rags and classic jewelry to some of the very old paintings in the world, there is so much you can obtain here if you are a fan of classic stuff.
6. Craiglist: Craiglist too does list fantastic stuff when it comes to antiques. Many buyers and sellers rely on this online site that lists nearly every product or service on offer to look for a vintage item or sell one. They have a special category of antiques where you can obtain special coins and notes, jewelry, paintings, or pieces of furniture from many decades back on Craiglist. It is a very popular website for vintage stuff worth checking out.
7. Ebay: Just like Amazon and other similar websites, Ebay lists different categories of items ranging from electronics, cars as well as collectibles and art. There is also sporting goods, clothes and shoes, home and garden and more. Collectibles and art is one of the most popular product categories on this online marketplace. Many users go to Ebay to list or purchase antiques. There is a wide variety of vintage furniture, coins and notes as well as pieces of artwork to be found here.
In addition, there is an endless assortment of sports memorabilia, classic table and wall clocks, vintage stamps and many other incredible objects from many years back. In fact, Ebay is one of the best places with a wider variety of antiques. It serves better than some online antique stores that you know.
8. Bonanza: Bonanza is not a very popular online marketplace, but believe me, this site scores higher than sites such as Amazon or Etsy when it comes to artwork pieces and collectibles. Although this site offers various categories of products, some of the best items you can buy there are antiques. Bonanza lists more pieces of artwork, collectibles, antiques and souvenirs than many sites do.
Whether you are looking for the rare 1 dollar coin, which apparently is worth 1000 dollars or other classic item that is worth much more today, you can be sure that you will find it here or at least find a quality lead. Usually, many sellers who list their antiques probably do not understand the actual value of their items, hence they do sell them cheaply. I have personally bought a very priceless piece of jewelry on bonanza.com for quite less.
9. OLX: OLX.com is a first growing online marketplace for all products and services. Initially, it was known as Dealfish and the site mainly used to list career opportunities. Now the site has numerous listings for different categories of products and services. It is a great online market place to check out as well when you are looking for some antiques to add to your collection.
Or maybe you are in search for a special coin that is so hard to find that you can’t seem to obtain it from the sites above. You never know, you could just bump into that coin on OLX, because many buyers have not yet discovered this site, which has plenty to offer when it comes to vintage items.
