Damaged items: We lovingly and thoroughly pack our items to ensure their safe arrival to you. If your item has obvious damage in shipment - refuse to accept it from the carrier.

Shipping policies

We ship with weight-and-size calculated rates to all states within the continental US (48 States). All orders are usually shipped within 5 business days, but may take up to 2 weeks. If processing is slow, you will receive an email informing you as to the status of your item.

We use USPS for packages under $200, and UPS for packages over $200 or for oversized packages. You will receive a tracking number as soon as the item has been sent to you. We'll make every effort to expedite shipping upon request.

Additional policies

Please note that all items are accurately labeled and represented to the best of our ability, and pricing is based on careful and extensive research. Unfortunately, the well-loved and much-travelled nature of vintage and antique items makes it difficult to certify the age, origins, and material of many objects. Unless otherwise specified, we do not guarantee authenticity. If you require further information about any listing, please do not hesitate to contact us!
