♠  VINTAGE TOAST RACKS  ♠

 

I’ve mentioned before that I have an Etsy shop where I sell vintage decor and handcrafted items.  One of my best-selling items are vintage toast racks. Whenever I come across one in good quality I pick it up.  You might be thinking that I sell these rack to use to hold toast but you’d be wrong.  After buying my first toast rack and styling it as a stationery/letter holder, that’s how I’ve been promoting them ever since.

Most of the racks I’ve round have been silver-plated but you can find them in brass, milk glass or even decorative ceramic styles like this blue and white beauty. #yesplease

Toast Racks are the perfect chic storage piece to hold thank-you notes, bills or small electronics like your cell or linens. During the holidays, they are a great way to display Christmas cards without taking up a lot of room.

They come in all shapes and sizes and prices can range from as little as $5.00 up to hundreds of dollars.

When shopping for vintage toast racks on Etsy, use these search terms to narrow your findings:  toast rack , letter rack, card holder, letter holder, Victorian rack

I’ve made shopping easy for you and rounded up a few of my favorite toast racks, all under $20!

 This one is for all you blue and white lovers.

This one is perfect for a desk and can hold more than just stationery.

If your style is art deco, you’ll love this one.

And I love this brass swan piece.

We’re heading off on a road trip tomorrow and I plan to stop at a few flea markets along the way.  Fingers crossed that I score a few toast racks.
