The unicorn mobile from Emma’s nursery in fairy tale land somehow made it to Mr. Gold’s shop in Storybrooke.

This was confirmed in “Going Home”

I’m sure someone has already mentioned this, but I just noticed that Owen had a Star Wars blanket at the beginning of Welcome to Storybrooke. Which kind of make me happy, because my favorite movie is (again) being referenced on my favorite show. In fact, it was referenced twice in this scene.

There’s a hat box in the back of Mr. Gold’s shop that looks suspiciously like the one Jefferson carries in Hat Trick

The framed prints visible in the hall appear to be John Tenniel’s illustrations from the Alice books. The illustration here is one from Through the Looking Glass

The spare room where Jefferson stashes Mary Margaret when he has her tied up is yet another room in Storybrooke with forest themed wallpaper (see this post and this post). 

Also note the tea set lamp. 

Jefferson’s living room features an old optical illusion called a phenakistoscope. When that disk spins, it appears as if the horse is running. You can read up on them here.
