About ahummingbirdheirloom

Sales 1,251
On Etsy since 2018

The love of vintage has strong family roots - from our family to yours!

Welcome to A Hummingbird Heirloom on Etsy!
Also available at www.ahummingbirdheirloom.com

Hi! I’m Catherine and thrilled that you have found my vintage heirloom shop!
I love to share my enthusiasm of curated vintage and heirloom treasures!

I am environmentally conscious, with a passion for history and strongly believe in sustainability.
Let’s face it vintage is one of kind and each vintage piece can be as unique as its new owner!

Browse the shop; from vintage and heirloom home décor, to beautifully coloured glassware and everything in between, see what unique vintage finds speak to you. Bring some vintage character into your home or give as a gift to another vintage enthusiast!

A Hummingbird Heirloom is operated with you, the customer, in mind. I find vintage and heirloom pieces that are in excellent vintage condition and appeal to a variety of tastes and budgets.

Where are these vintage and heirloom treasures found? Barn sales, estate sales and the like. Anywhere and everywhere. Wherever I can find vintage and heirloom treasures that are still in great condition. I enjoy finding these pre-loved treasures a new home, in an effort to enjoy their beauty and to reduce our carbon footprint.

To maintain the great condition, items are shipped in a sturdy cardboard box with layers of bubble wrap and packing material.

If there is something in particular you are looking for, drop me an email through the ‘Contact Us’ page.

Happy Vintage Shopping from A Hummingbird Heirloom! I look forward to providing you with excellent customer service and a new vintage or heirloom treasure to enjoy!

Frequently asked questions

FREE Shipping? (Not Textiles)

Items (excluding textiles) that include FREE shipping, will be shipped to anywhere in Canada for FREE and most of the USA, but excludes Alaska and Hawaii. Please contact me for shipping quotes to Alaska and Hawaii. Items are shipped boxed and packaged carefully and ship with TRACKING! You are excited to receive your parcel, what better way to know how long you have to wait, than being able to track for FREE!

Vintage Condition

Vintage treasures have been pre-loved and consequently may have slight imperfections. Descriptions and pictures will portray items honestly. Pictures are PART OF THE DESCRIPTION, ZOOM in and take a closer look. If additional information or pictures are needed, send an email and I will be happy to help!

Does A Hummingbird Heirloom offer a layaway plan?

At this time, no layaway plans are offered. If interested in an item, please contact the shop and we can reserve the item you fell in love with for 48 hours. After 48 hours the reservation will be removed. If more time is needed, again contact the shop and we can work with you.

How accurate are the descriptions? Are the photos edited?

A Hummingbird Heirloom makes every effort to ensure descriptions are accurate and completely honest. We are value transparency and honesty in ALL we do. We want you to LOVE your purchases! Our photos ARE NOT EDITED! What you see is what you will get! The only photo editing we do, is to crop the photos, so you can see the items clearly. Please bear in mind, that colors are subjective to the device you are using and the color scale set up on that device.

How are sizing measurements done?

We measure in feet and inches. All sizes are approximate and are stipulated in the item descriptions.

How are items packaged?

A Hummingbird Heirloom stresses the importance of good packaging. We want your loved items to arrive to you in the condition you purchased them. We use good sturdy boxes, most of which are purchased new with 200lb test weight. Occasionally, recycled boxes will be used for larger or oddly shaped items but we will ensure all items are packaged extremely well! We also believe in recycling, where possible, so often shredded paper will be used to help cushion your treasures. In addition, fragile items are wrapped with layers of bubble paper to ensure they make their journey unscathed.

How are damaged shipments handled?

At A Hummingbird Heirloom, we take great pride in our products and how they are packaged. Unfortunately, damage may occur during transit, regardless of how well items are packaged.

If damage occurs, we will require pictures of the damaged item(s), all the packaging materials and the box(es). These pictures will be required for insurance claims, as all our packages are shipped with insurance. With these pictures and the pre-transit photos; determinations can be more easily made by the Postal service, in regard to insurance.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation!

Gift wrapping and packaging

Due to the nature of our business, most items are delicate porcelain or glass and will be wrapped with lots of bubble wrap. After carefully wrapping, we can add lots of colored tissue paper (our choice of colors) and a card. During checkout, let us know what message you would like and we will write YOUR message inside. Your gift recipient will receive your thoughtful gift and upon opening the shipping box, a gift card with YOUR message will be on top of colorful tissue paper, and their carefully chosen gift will be nestled in packing peanuts/shredded paper and wrapped with bubble paper.
During the Holiday season a Christmas themed card will be used. Other times of the year, a generic card will be used.

International Customers

All orders destined for international customers, are shipped with TRACKING! You are excited to receive your parcel, what better way to know how long you have to wait, than being able to track!
