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 almost 20 years (!) I used to have additional selling locations, but Etsy has taken the place of all that!
I actually have 3 shops on Etsy...another for jewelry

... and one for sewing supplies, patterns, lace, material, etc. I seem to collect a lot of that type of thing too:

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 of our 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.

I sell antiques and collectibles on a retail basis and etsy is a great new and different outlet for me. I try to describe items as honestly as I can, but please keep in mind that vintage means old and often used!!I

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
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. Return postage will be the buyer's responsibility.
