Announcement   Keep up with my hunt for vintage gold by following my Facebook page (Gezellig Home).

Thanks to Emily Henderson (of HGTV fame) for including one of my pillows in her best-of-Etsy roundup!

"Gezellig" is an un-translateable Dutch word that embodies the spirit of home--it means cozy, comfy, warm, inviting, friendly, and welcoming, all at once. I hope you find something here to make your home more "gezellig"!

I've listed only U.S. shipping rates, but I'm happy to ship internationally. I will also reduce shipping rates if multiple items can be shipped together. Please convo for a quote on shipping.

Welcome to Gezellig Home and Garden! Please come in, kick off your shoes, have a cuppa tea, and make yourself at home. Our goal at GH is to make you feel comfortable!

I chose the Dutch word “gezellig” for my shop because it embodies my design vision. I first heard this term when my mother-in-law, who is of Dutch heritage, came to visit our first apartment as a married couple. She stepped in the door, took a look around the place and proclaimed it, “gezelligheit!” At the time, I didn’t realize what high praise she was offering to her new daughter-in-law. I thought she meant my little place was passably clean, but she meant that our new place was cozy and comfortable. :)

Perhaps my desire to create an inviting, warm home is in my genetic and cultural DNA, then, because I live in Holland, Michigan!

My passion for vintage housewares derives from this desire to create a home where family members and guests feel a sense of belonging, a feeling of togetherness. Gezellig comes from the word gezel, meaning a companion. My hope is that the pieces I offer here on Etsy, come to feel like friends in your home.

Refunds and Exchanges
Nothing I sell is new or even “like new”--that’s what I love about vintage stuff!--so everything I sell is sold “as is." As a result, I do not accept returns. I try to photograph and describe each item carefully to give you a clear sense of the its condition, and I would be happy to answer questions or provide more information about any item before you buy it.
