Announcement   I love animals, all animals. SO my Etsy shop was built on the idea that 10% of the proceeds would go to an organization in my state of Nebraska, called Hearts United for Animals (HUA). This year (2017) and onward, I'm changing that number to 20%. HUA is a no-kill shelter for dogs and cats, located in Auburn, Nebraska (a small town in southeastern Nebraska). They save dogs, they find and shut down puppy mills, and they give the animals a safe, warm, and loving large home. No animal is euthanized there unless their pain takes over their quality of life .They live on acres of pet friendly pet homes, and the very oldest live in the house of those who established HUA So know, when you are shopping with AnnsWhimsey and AnnsWhimseySupplies, you are also giving to Hearts United for Animals.

Annswhimsey is a place of hundreds of restored vintage art prints, vintage hankies, books, magazines, sports, music, antiques, jewelry, handmade, and unique gift items.

Please note: PLEASE USE THE MENU ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE PAGES When navigating my shop, OR, if you find an item you like and want to see similar items, just continue to the end of the product description and you will see "to see other items like this click here". Just follow that link. We have nearly 1000 items so we try to make it easy for you to find what you want!

About

I Love Antiques, Paper, Scrapbooking, Books, Music and on and on and on

One day a friend of mine, knowing how there's hardly anything I don't like to try --- art, digital design, antiquing, collecting, sewing, crafts --- said "YOU should be selling on esty". In two weeks I'd opened my shop and had my first 100 items listed. (I think it's called obsessive compulsive LOL!). I called the shop Ann's Whimsey because every new craft I hear of strikes my fancy, every new idea strikes my fancy, and for that matter, every new person I meet also 'strikes my fancy' as a potential friend. In "real life" I own a medical transcription company, for 20 years a resume' development and job placement company, and I'm a nationally published writer. I've always owned my own businesses so starting a shop in etsy was something I didn't find at all intimidating. I'll be learning something new about etsy and about what to sell every day I'm here -- and that's another thing which strikes my fancy --- never quit learning!

I would like all of my shoppers to know that 10% of each sale goes to Hearts United for Animals which is a no-kill shelter for abandoned furballs here in Nebraska. I love animals. Every one of my children, 'brought home children' (in-law kids), and grandkids love and care for animals. If you ever have time to read about a truly wonderful organization and to look at some beautiful four-footers who have been saved, just take a look at http://hua.org/ --

I've always loved anything antique. I've always been a collector. Along this journey through life I've collected just about everything at one time or another, but my best "finds" have been my hubby, three kids, & five grandkids).

Please follow me on twitter, facebook, and pinterest!! AND please follow our blog --- we feature treasuries, present slide shows, and you never know what you're going to find there :+)

    Nothing breaks my heart more than knowing there are dogs and cats who are abused, neglected, or wandering about looking for a home. 10% of my sales go to Hearts United for Animals, a no kill shelter in Nebraska.

    The Boss

    And this is my favorite four footer and he IS the boss. He "helps" me as I work (snoozing underneath the desk) and keeps me on schedule (for things like his meals, trips outside, his treats) & ALWAYS lets me know when the mailman is here!

Shop policies

Last updated on 03 August, 2017
Please ask questions if you are unsure of anything about an item you wish to purchase. I ship within one day of your order being placed (and sometimes the same day if your order gets here before the mailman). As of January 2016 our postage increased significantly. I do NOT pad my postage ... it's just the Post Office's way of telling us they are in charge!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
  • Other Method
Returns and exchanges
I refund payments
#1 --- ONLY IF I HAVE GROSSLY MISREPRESENTED an item. Please contact me with any questions (there are no silly questions) before buying.
_________________________________________________________________

#2 --There are absolutely NO REFUNDS on any PAPER ITEMS as they can be easily reproduced. unfortunately in our digital age, these items are sometimes copied --- and it's a case of a 'few bad apples spoiling the barrel'.
___________________________________________________________________

#3 -- I issue a refund once you have contacted me, and I have received the item back. Postage is non-refundable.
Payment
Payment is through Pay Pal or Etsy Check Out (credit card). I DO ship worldwide so don't feel I'm overlooking you. If you are interested in purchasing an item and are not from the U.S., just contact me with where you are from, what items you wish to purchase. I will let you know what the shipping would be and if agreeable to you, I'll then set your items up with the proper postage for your country.
Shipping
Please read my item's description. IN the description you will find my shipping charge for this item, and how much I charge if you buy it with another item. Etsy has chosen not to share this information with shoppers, so you will find this IN my item description.
______________________________________________________________________

If you are purchasing prints, they are shipped on an acid free mat board and protected from moisture with an acid free plastic.

___________________________________________________________________________

If you are purchasing hankies, you pay postage on the first hankie only. Any others purchased at the same time ride "for free".
Additional policies and FAQs
If you need an item really fast, contact me to let me know you are willing to pay for priority mail. I will let you know when I've changed the postage price, and you can then go in and purchase the item.
