The colors on this scarf are more understated than the photos, which show it to be quite bright. The more gentle tones work great for me and the entire piece is quite an amazing work of art. It looks as though it should be matted and framed instead of worn. Very "museum-quality"!

It will be so easy to make a statement with this very artful scarf - I think it will be a conversation starter. Shipped speedily by this very nice shop owner, who was also very quick to communicate when I had a question.

Elegant, with an "old-world" feel, I love the blue/light green color combination in this scarf. A great addition to my collection.

This is a gorgeous scarf, with bold colors and a pattern that is whimsical. I appreciate this shop owner's detailed description of all the scarves that are offered, making it easy to choose what will work. Communication is great, and shipping was fast....a big "thumbs-up"!

About

Antiques are my passion.

Auctions are the most fun thing for me to do--I just love that you never know what you might find at one...ask my family about some of the strange things I've hauled home over the years. It took me a few years to build up the courage to start selling some of my treasures, but I've never looked back.
I've been selling locally in the same antique mall for over 20 years (!) I used to have additional selling locations, but Etsy has taken the place of all that!
I used to have multiple shops on Etsy, but that got too confusing...this is it!!
I have a wonderful husband who puts up with a lot of "stuff" in our house...he also does a lot of the post office runs.
Both grown daughters have shops on etsy.
Emily was the first:

Then Amanda:

They are both more successful with their Etsy shops than I am, and I'm so proud of them both.

Payment
Communication is the key here.
If you are unhappy with your purchase for any reason, please contact me before leaving your feedback, since I'm sure we can work it out.
Shipping
Effective 2013 the U.S. postal service has raised their rates dramatically, so unfortunately, I've had to also raise MY shipping rates to you.
Note that at times my shipping charges to you may be higher than the postal charges. That cushion helps to pay for shipping supplies.
Refunds and Exchanges
I am happy to refund your original purchase price and postage charges if you feel that I have misrepresented an item.
I will refund your purchase price but not shipping charges if you just decide you want to return it, so make sure you measure carefully!
I will refund the appropriate amount once I have received back the item in good order.
