Gently used Vintage for your unique style

1 Part Vintage is my happy place. It's where I sell wonderful vintage items perfect for creating a warm and inviting home for your family and friends. And it's where you can explore the wonderful world of gently used housewares. I rescue vintage housewares and decorative items, clean and polish them, and hopefully inspire you to give them a place in your home. These beautiful pieces create visual interest and offer memorable connections to the past. The vintage items offered are very good to excellent condition (gift worthy), with timeless appeal.

Beautiul Vintage Handkerchiefs are used to create my Vintage Hanky Pillows-soft, comfy, one of a kind pillows, that preserve the talents of yesterday's textile artists. They are sewn in my home studio, a collection of re-finished, repurposed and passed down furniture pieces . I sew using my mother's vintage 1960's Singer Rocketeer sewing machine and have my serger sitting on my Grammy's 1928 sewing machine cabinet, where she sat to make my mother's baby clothes. I love this connection to my family's past.

I'd love for you to stop by often to see the vintage items that are looking for a new home. You can follow me on Facebook @1partvintage (http://www.fb.me/1PartVintage).

Thank you for visiting 1 Part Vintage.

My Best,

Welcome to 1 Part Vintage! I'm so glad that you've found my shop and hope you enjoy looking through the wonderful vintage items I've selected for you. I search for quality pre-owned vintage housewares, many that represent America's manufacturing heritage, and carefully select pieces that have retained their usefulness and that have timeless design appeal.

All items are inspected for flaws and documented in pictures, so you know exactly what to expect when you receive your purchase. A certain amount of patina is expected and desirable on most vintage goods. Items are given a good cleaning so you get an enjoyable, new to me experience.

Enjoy your visit!

Returns and exchange details
Your Satisfaction is very important to me. I do allow returns within 14 days and request that you notify me of your desire to return an item within 7 days of receipt. The buyer pays the return shipping and your refund will be issued as soon as I receive the item.

Any defects are clearly described and photographed so look over the photos carefully before purchase. Your satisfaction is important to me and returns will be accepted within 14 days. The buyer pays the return shipping and credit will be minus original shipping fee.
Please pay via PayPal or credit cards through Etsy's Direct Checkout at the time of purchase. Items will be shipped within 1-2 business days.
I ship via the U.S. Postal Service and use Etsy's calculated shipping service, so your cost is based on how far the package must travel to get to you. I don't offer free shipping because an in state customer shouldn't expect to pay the same as an item being shipped clear across the country. I think that's the fairest way to do business. I do not charge any handling fees and do my best to estimate shipping weights at the time of listing. I do credit shipping overage that exceeds my packaging cost, on the rare occasion that happens.

Items are shipped to you in appropriate protective packaging. Should you receive an item that has been damaged, please send me a photo ASAP. Include pictures of the unopened box if significantly damaged and the likely cause of the damage to your purchase. If the damage appears to be a result of improper handling, a claim should be initiated with the US Postal Service.

I guarantee your purchase will arrive to you in the condition described and I work to quickly resolve any damage issue that happens as a result of insufficient cushioning. I acknowledge that for certain delicate items, the shipping may be perceived as high, however, experience has taught me that packages are handled pretty roughly as they go through the system. Therefore, extra packing is required to guarantee arrival in one piece. As most of my offerings are one of a kind, replacement is not usually an option. Please recycle the packing materials whenever possible.
Additional policies and FAQs
Vintage Hanky Pillows should be hand washed in cool water with a mild soap. I do not recommend wringing or scrubbing the hanky surface. Air dry and press on the wool or cotton setting of your iron. The pillow insert should be removed prior to laundering.
