DandelionGirl's Profile

About

I inherited the shopping gene from my mother - she always took the kids out for walks - at the shopping centers and night markets! Mom's version of "exercise can be fun" has had a lasting impact on all of her daughters!

Hence, I am an avid shopper - totally into retro, vintage and kitsch! Strong believer in the 3 Rs - reduce, reuse, recycle. I find older items fascinating - they bring back happy memories of the days spent shopping with Mom.

I live in Virginia with my husband and I'm a mom now to 3 wonderful cats (goodbye sweet Nestlé - 12/22/08 - you will be in our hearts forever). My cats have no interest in shopping, so it looks like the gene stops here! We are a non-smoking family.

DandelionGirl is a way for me to showcase and find good homes for some of my own treasures collected over the years…

DandelionGirl is a way for me to showcase and find good homes for some of my own treasures collected over the years as well as fresh finds from antique, consignment or charity shops. Perhaps you’ll find something you love here!


* WHAT I SELL *

Most of my items here will be vintage home and kitchen items, kitsch and the occasional supply. Since vintage items have had past lives, most are not going to be like new even though they have been pre-loved. I’ll try to point out any flaws, take good photos and have good descriptions. I may occasionally miss something however.

I hope to have a good mix of cute, fun, pretty, funky or just plain nostalgic items of good quality. I do clean my finds where possible and will note otherwise where it may be beyond my abilities! I will rarely use the word "Mint" for my items - even if never used before, vintage items tend to have some wear from handling or even storage.


* SHIPPING *

I ship by USPS Priority Mail or USPS Priority Mail International. Occasionally, I will ship via USPS First Class Mail or USPS First Class Mail International. Once in a while, I may use UPS - I live in a small city and the UPS Store is quite far away.

I use a mix of new and recycled packing materials and boxes – I do make sure they are clean though! Shipments made almost daily except for weekends and holidays. Once payment is received and cleared, I can get your item (items!) sent on its way within 24 business hours, at most 48 business hours. Please note that eChecks will take at least 4 business days to clear before shipment is made.

All U.S. items are sent with Delivery Confirmation.


* INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING *

International customers - I'm happy to ship to most countries but please note that you will be responsible for any duties and taxes your country imposes on items you purchase from me.

I put the actual cost of the item on the customs form and I do not inflate it by adding the cost of shipping. Please do not ask me to mark the "Gift" box on the form.



* HOW TO USE GOOGLE CHECKOUT *

While this option isn’t currently supported on Etsy’s site, you can still make your purchases through Etsy and then mention “Google Checkout” in the message to seller. I’ll send you an invoice – once you receive the Google Checkout invoice we can go from there! Any issues with checkout - convo me!
