Can you suggest any stores where I can find gothic home decor that doesn't look uber cheesy (like it came from a cheap Halloween store). Preferably online, since we're in completely different countries. I adore lace, apothecary jars, anything glamgoth, anything witchy...
Hmm, I think sites like Etsy and Amazon are probably your best shot since there are literally all sorts in there. Some online goth clothing shops have home decor sections as well, but some of the items definitely fall under the Halloween store category. Funnily enough, sometimes costume stores have really nice quality decorations all year round! There’s also Not on the High Street, which has a lot of small independent stores selling their products and I’ve found nice little gothy things from there, for example, small skull bottles. (It’s a UK site but some stores ship abroad.)
When searching through big sites like Etsy it’s good to keep your keywords in mind. Don’t try just goth and witch, try occult, Wiccan, dark, antique, Victorian… People use all sorts of words to describe their products and you sometimes find them under obscure tags. You can also look for things like old apothecary jars online/at second hand stores and then decorate them yourself with text, fairylights, glitter, or dried flowers… A little DIY goes a long way and is often cheaper too.
Sorry I can’t be more specific, but hope this helps!
