Announcement    BUY ANY 3 ITEMS IN THE SHOP AND RECEIVE 20% AT CHECKOUT.
Due to heavy parcel volumes and delays with both USPS and Canada Post, I would advise you to upgrade to tracked package so you can at least follow your package in the mail system. Review the shipping information in the listing carefully and if you have any questions, please feel free to ask. Thank you for your understanding.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING AND SERVICE INTERRUPTIONS - Canada Post is not accepting mail and parcels for a lengthy list of countries due to a temporary service disruption. If you place an order and your country is on that list, I will contact you to discuss next steps.
CANADA TO US MAIL - I am starting to notice longer delivery times for first class letter mail from Canada to the US. Items now take 14-20 days to arrive so please be patient, but do feel free to stay in touch with me. First class letter mail DOES NOT include tracking so please be patient while waiting for your treasure(s) to arrive. Thank you for your understanding during this extraordinary time.

Handcrafted unique home décor and gift items made on my farm here in Canada. With a deep appreciation for vintage and antique items I strive to re-purpose older items and give them new life.

I have two other shops here on Etsy and I would be delighted to have you visit.
TheOldBarnDoor is filled to overflowing with vintage postcards, ephemera, photography and unique home decor pieces.

I am privileged to live on land that is part of the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee, adjacent to Wendat, and Anishnaabeg territories, and to the Kanien’keha:ka community of Tyendinaga.

About MyBack40

Sales 202
On Etsy since 2015

Like Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz

You know that great line from the end of The Wizard of Oz where Dorothy looks up at her friends and family and says something to the effect about “looking for her heart’s desire she wouldn’t look any further than her own backyard.” Well, my life is sort of like that…except I discovered I didn’t have the right backyard. So, after a 25+ year high pressure career, my husband and I chucked it all, sold the house in the big city and bought the farm…really…we bought a farm.

My main passion, after my husband and my animals is vintage and antique collectibles. I find enjoyment in finding new homes for many of these treasures and repurposing them to give them new life. When time permits I can be found at my crafting table with a wide variety of projects underway - often inspired by my latest finds.

I believe in animal rescue, laughing often and loudly, eating local and healthy, following your heart and making your dreams a reality.

My first shop on Etsy is devoted to vintage postcards, ephemera, photography and decorative pillow covers made from my photographs and snippets of antique postcards. I'd be delighted to have you drop on by for a visit

Payment

Delivery
I will select the most cost effective shipping method possible.

Rates from Canada are, unfortunately, somewhat higher than those in the US. I strive to ship the next business day after payment but it may be up to 3 business days if things on the farm are really busy (lambing season, hay season etc). I will gladly combine items purchased to reduce the overall postage cost and I will mark the item shipped on the day I mail your item.

CUSTOMS:
International customers are responsible for duties, taxes and customs fees assessed by your country. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; sellers have no control over these charges. You may contact your local customs office for more information.

When filling out customs forms, Canadian, U.S. and International government regulations prohibit sellers from marking merchandise values lower than the selling price, as well as marking items as gifts. Unfortunately, I have no control over the time it may take for your item to go through Customs before it arrives to you.
