Circa Lighting

Popular among interior designers but largely unknown to those outside the industry, this Savannah, Georgia–based lighting resource turns out stunning, high-quality reproduction fixtures. Its more than 500 period-specific styles all have a sense of old-fashioned glamour, from gorgeously weighty brass longshoreman-style lanterns to weathered mirrored Mexican star pendants and cut-crystal art deco table lamps.

Curiosity Shoppe Online

This engaging site is dedicated to offbeat gifts with a retro-rustic charm. Its folksy-looking home page groups together items under an inspired theme; at press time, it focused on the great outdoors. For example: dessert plates featuring classic camping imagery (a pup tent, a roaring fire), a teensy bronze hedgehog necklace, knot-tying and learn-to-whittle kits, and a gouache portrait of a coonskin-capped pioneer.

Foundation for Contemporary Arts

This 50-year-old nonprofit arts organization recently put its vast library of for‑sale prints, photographs, and posters online. There's an impressive inventory of works by well-known names for surprisingly low sums—perfect for the burgeoning collector who wants to get her hands on a Robert Rauschenberg lithograph, a Kiki Smith woodcut, or a signed Matthew Barney exhibition poster.

London Lace

This site (and Boston store) is steadfastly dedicated to one thing: gorgeous antique-inspired lace window treatments. For the past 28 years, owner Diane Loesch-Jones has been working with centuries-old Scottish lace-making mills—two of the last remaining in the world—which weave an abundance of affordable panels and valences, many specifically for her store.

Stylish, eco-conscious merchandise is the focus here, and every item, whether it's a Perfectly Imperfect organic-cotton trapeze top, Nature Girl sulfate-free shampoo, or a one-of-a-kind chandelier, is produced using energy-efficient, environmentally sensitive methods. To further promote a green lifestyle, Modify posts topical weekly blog entries—and includes a glossary-like primer on all its vendors.

P.O.S.H. Chicago

Overseas flea markets aren't the bargain-rich hunting grounds they once were, which is what makes P.O.S.H. so notable: Its owners manage to find the most incredible pieces in European and South American markets—gilded coronation dishware, elaborate brass candelabras, colorful seltzer bottles, striped linen tea towels—then return home and sell them at startlingly fair prices. Antique English hotel silver is a particular specialty; a quick glance at the domed serving platters and finely etched teapots is enough to compel you to throw a six-course dinner party.
