About MicroscopeTelescope

Sales 2,326
On Etsy since 2014

Vintage meets Science

My excitement for mid century furniture began a few years ago while curating unique pieces for my own home. MicroscopeTelescope blends my love affair for globes and finely crafted furniture with my boyfriend's love of science, space & typography. We are always on the hunt for our own house, but can't fit them all, thus, MicroscopeTelescope was born!

I love the thrill of finding vintage items, scouring thrift stores, surpluses and estate sales. Each piece holds a unique story and history. Opening MicroscopeTelescope allows me to continue to hunt while sharing the pieces I have found with others!

Welcome to my shop! I hope you find something in the shop that you love!

I decided to open an etsy shop because I love scouring thrift stores and estate sales and I am obsessed with vintage items. I love that vintage pieces are unique and hold the story of it's previous owner. My own home is decorated with several globes, brass candle sticks, mid century furniture, cameras and unique and funky electrical gadgets. I only put items in my shop that I would love to have in my own home. Many of the items are not in perfect condition, but that's what makes vintage so great! Please read the shipping policies & item descriptions carefully and message me if you have any questions. I would be happy to help.

The best part of vintage is that the item has a past and is not a perfect copy of another item. With that in mind, we do our best to accurately describe and photograph the items condition. Please expect wear & imperfections and look at ALL photos AND description carefully. There may be dents, scratches or blemishes on items and I do my best to detail any major marks in every listing. Please look at both the full description AND the photos for the condition of the item. If you have a question about the condition of a particular item, please contact me before purchasing.
