10 Different Places to Buy Affordable and Beautiful Art

We believe that art should be accessible to all, no matter how much disposable income you have. In this article, we’ll share 10 of the best places to buy art either locally or online.

1. Online Art Marketplace

eBay, Artsy, and Saatchi Art are all great places to find one-of-a-kind artwork. All of these sites offer great deals, along with a variety of categories and styles to choose from. You can also browse Craigslist for some incredible artwork, but bring a friend if you’re buying in person.

2. Thrift Stores

You may be surprised by what kinds of art pieces you can find at thrift stores. It’s worth taking a chance and digging through the stacks to find hidden treasures. Even if you’re looking to upscale your dining room, you won’t have a problem locating unique and beautiful paintings.

3. Art Galleries

Local art galleries are a great source for unique pieces. Even just browsing through the galleries can be inspiring, as you’ll be able to find a few pieces you love. Whether you’re in Los Angeles or in Seattle, you can visit various art galleries that showcase works in styles that you admire.

4. Yard Sales

Yard sales are great for finding offbeat pieces that have a personal touch. You may find something you love for a fraction of the price. There’s even been instances where people have found original prints of famous art pieces. If you shop around, you could get really lucky.

5. Etsy

Etsy is full of talented artists that are offering their work for sale. Just check out their portfolios to find a style that speaks to you. While Etsy has a reputation for being expensive, many artists offer their finished paintings or custom painting services for a reasonable cost with free shipping.

6. Flea Markets

Flea markets are a great way to find unique, one-of-a-kind pieces. And you might even be able to haggle the price down. When shopping in flea markets, stick to vendors that have a reputation for being trustworthy. Or, expect that the art you’re buying may not be legitimate.

7. Antique Shops

Antique shops are full of both old works and reproductions. It’s a great place to find an interesting statement piece to display in your home. Antique shops are another location that could be expensive, but you have more leeway when it comes to haggling down the price.

8. Local Art Fairs

Local art fairs are an incredible source of unique, handmade pieces. Plus, most of these pieces are surprisingly affordable. Most local art fairs are filled with people who are either painting for fun or trying to make a career for themselves, so you’ll find plenty of inexpensive art pieces.

9. Pawn Shops

Pawn shops are great for finding unique items that you otherwise wouldn’t be able to find. Just remember to shop around and make sure you’re getting the best deal. If you have things on hand that you’re looking to sell, bring them to the pawn shop first and use that money to buy art.

10. Artists in Your Area

Check out the websites of local artists in your area. You might be surprised how many talented artists are just around the corner. Or browse Instagram or DeviantArt for up-and-coming artists. It’s always a good idea to support local, as you’re generating more money for your community.
