I just this pattern! I waited and waited - for a little more than a month. Finally the item arrived in perfect condition. Fine!
Cariboo is a team of two enthusiasts who share a passion for all things old & collectible. We source constantly from estate sales & flea markets
With combined effort we're ever busy scouring every local source available to our disposal - yard sales, estate sales, auctions, thrift shops & flea markets (to name a few) - in search of unique old items large and small.
100% locally sourced:
Items are sourced locally right here in BC Canada - from Victoria to Prince George and everywhere else in between.
We believe that repurposing & upcycling local vintage & antique products is the sincerest form of recycling. All packaging materials come from recycled sources, including both the boxes as well as bubble packing.
Scott & Nat, the enthusiastic owners!

Frequently asked questions
We support combined shipping, and in most cases, the buyer only has to pay for the shipping on the larger item. However, this is not automatically applied through Etsy to the customer. Feel free to contact us when buying multiple items and we'll be happy to combine them into one shipping cost.
For example, an empty suitcase is quite costly to ship to the U.S.A. If the buyer wishes to purchase something else from our shop that fits into the suitcase, there will be no additional shipping cost for the second (or third) item. It's the SIZE that makes the shipping cost high, not the weight. A 30"x20"x10" box that weighs 2 kilograms is the same cost to ship if the same size box weighs 10 kilograms.
Shipping to Canada
We ship from Vancouver, Canada via 'Canada Post' in most instances. When we ship to other locations in Canada, all items that are deemed 'parcels' automatically come with tracking included. About 99% of our products fall into this 'parcel' category.
To keep shipping costs low, we usually opt for Canada Post's "Regular Parcel" service, which will typically take between 2-7 business days to arrive. And of course, tracking is included. For large packages a signature may be required when receiving - or else CanadaPost will leave a note for which you'll have to pick it up at a local postal shop location.
IN A RUSH? If you prefer the 'Xpresspost' (but more expensive) option, please contact us and we'll calculate the difference.
Shipping to USA
Being located in Canada, primarily we use our national provider 'Canada Post' to ship to the USA. Once entering the US the parcels are then handled by USPS.
ALL shipments to the USA are provided with 'tracking' so our customers can keep track of the delivery status. Any shipment WITH TRACKING, regardless of size/weight to the USA is a minimum of $16 (CDN). That's why our minimum price for shipping (of any item) is set to $12 USD.
Generally, delivery is usually between 4-6 business days. The buyer may be available to select a faster shipping method in the cart and on the Checkout review page.
International Shipping (from Canada)
It's difficult to accurately estimate shipping costs to different countries for each package. So, we enter in an arbitrary cash number (in USD) which represents a 'best estimate' of the shipping cost. This may seem high, but it does include tracking. By default all of our packages come with tracking, no matter where they're being shipped to.
Offering 'tracking' for packages being shipped internationally brings up the shipping costs significantly. That said, it also speeds up the delivery time by weeks. Packages shipped without tracking will typically take 6-8 weeks to arrive.
Feel free to contact us in advance, and we'll be happy to provide an accurate rate tailored for your item(s). Shipping overages will be refunded when applicable.
