Affordable Vintage Style Bar Carts

Assisted Living: Hunting For an Affordable, Vintage Bar Cart

CasaSugar Community member SpencerFran recently wrote into the CasaSugar Q&A group, saying, "I'm looking for a bar cart for my house, but don't want to spend a lot of money. I'm on the hunt for a vintage (or vintage-looking) one, and I'm not sure where to go? Any suggestions?" I've come to her aid!

Steel industrial modern bar cart — $2,185
Powdercoated white steel bar cart — $149
Brass and glass bar cart — $1,169
Midcentury-inspired mirror and silver leaf bar cart — $999
1960s rattan and leather bar cart — $490
20th-century factory steel cart — $195
Vintage rolling side table — $140
Midcentury-inspired walnut bar cart — $550

The best places to shop for affordable vintage bar carts are flea markets, antique fairs, or garage sales. Vintage furniture is prevalent at these spots, and you can purchase directly from the owner and not get charged for labor and production costs. Be sure to polish up on how to shop at flea markets before you go. Good online resources of vintage carts include Etsy, eBay, and 1st Dibs, as well as other auction houses, but items tend to sell quickly at these spots. Unfortunately, new "vintage-looking" bar carts often have a high price tag.

I've done some of the legwork for you and rounded up a few bar cart selections from around the web, including vintage designs, vintage-inspired pieces, and new productions. As you can see, they range from $140 to $2,185, and these are the more affordable ones I discovered. Another idea for you is to add castors to a standard side table that has a vintage look. Or, use a table without wheels if you're not intent on being able to roll it around. Hope this helps!
