Luxe retro finds can be expensive! But if you’re willing to shop for look-a-likes, you can save a pretty penny. Today we introduce a new series called High/Low. It’s a guessing game of sorts…each High/Low post will pose a question, and today’s question is this: 1stdibs or Z Gallerie? That’s right, we’re asking you to guess which is the high-end retro 1stdibs find and which is the more affordable new, retro-style Z Gallerie item. Check out the photos below and then scroll down to the bottom of the post for the answers. They just might surprise you!

How did you do? Notice how lots of Mid-Century finds have an ’80s look?! And while Z Gallerie may not have immediately come to mind as you were shopping for ’80s treasures, this retailer always has a plethora of shiny, luxury products with retro style. Happy shopping!
I love ZGallerie. They always have such cool stuff that goes with my stuff. I’ve been getting their catalogs ever since I bought a vase from them that you mentioned in a previous post.
😀 I have a couple of those vases in my dining room. Sometimes you can really find bargains there! Thanks for your comment, and for reading!
