The 5 Best Vintage Rug Shops On Instagram

Last week I was searching for an authentic Persian rug for a client's dining room. Since I can't really go out shopping right now, I went on Instagram to @mesavintage, one of the accounts that I know sells vintage rugs. When she didn't have exactly what I was looking for, she introduced me to a handful other amazing vintage rug shops. I wanted to share some of these sources with you so I present: The 5 Best Vintage Rug Shops on Instagram.

To my knowledge these shops are operating only on the Instagram platform, so you will probably not find them if you are doing a Google or Etsy search for vintage rugs. They all have beautiful collections and very reasonable prices. Most of the time shipping is included or you can pay an extra fee. If you are searching for an authentic vintage Persian or Kilim rug, I think these shops are definitely worth checking out!

I've found these Instagram dealers to be very attentive and willing to help out. If you have an idea of what you're looking for, you can send them a direct message with the style, colors, or size you want. Typically they will message you back right away with options and more photos if requested. 

I hope you love these shops and find the sources useful. If you know of any other small vintage rug shops, please leave a link in the comments below so we can all check them out! 

1. @MesaVintage - Janell is a collector and dealer based in San Diego, CA.

I'm always trying to grow my own personal rug collection as well. You can check my shop here to see what I currently have for sale. Lately though, I've been keeping pretty much everything I buy. Follow along on Instagram to see my most recent rug finds. They are good! Thanks for reading! -Nicole Mendez, Curator.
