About

I absolutely love old stuff

I'm in love with old stuff. Relatively old stuff, very old stuff, even slightly old stuff.

It is a decades-long affair that has never grown old, never gotten boring, never become less of a consuming passion.

Every piece whispers a story of hope to me; I find something admirable about each and every one of these old survivors.

I am an equal-opportunity antique-er. I love 'em, from the worthy battered and slightly broken to the pristine designer or famous maker pieces. My criteria focuses largely on a) the concept of 'line,' I buy what appeals to my (admittedly eclectic) sense of design; and b) a rather expansive imagination on how to repurpose something in a whimsical or slightly startling way.

My oldest daughter also says that "If it is heavy, my mom will buy it." I am not sure if the contents of AntiqueAddictions confirms or denies that allegation...

In a sense, I sometimes think I'm running a shelter for old stuff. Like abandoned puppies or kittens, plain or pretty, they just want a home, to be cared for and appreciated and utilized. They are rugged survivors and worthy of continuing their old lives in new homes.

Yeah, I guess I do anthropomorphize my inventory. I believe I already mentioned "consuming passion'?

Then there's the fact that all this old stuff is already here, and requires no additional physical resources to make or create. No trees to cut down, no earth to tear up, no coal plants feeding production lines. Doesn't get 'greener' than that.

And just look at the pages of Etsy! So many creative people are fueling their passions and their own economic engines by re-inventing or repurposing old stuff! And so many creative people are enhancing their lives and refreshing their ambiance with the old stuff they find here.

Buyers, sellers, the planet ... old stuff is just a win-win-win all around. And when you add Etsy into that mix, it become a global win. Thank you for visiting Etsy, and thank you for visiting AntiqueAddictions.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept Etsy credit card payments and gift cards, Paypal and personal checks.

I WILL NOT SHIP to an unconfirmed US addresses. If you need something shipped to an address other than your main payment service address, please go to 'edit address' in your payment accounts, and "add" your new address and CHOOSE it from the drop-down menu BEFORE you pay for your item using either Etsy or Paypal thanks.

TIMING: We usually ship within 1-3 days. Larger items may take a couple more days to find or manufacture boxes. Items being freighted can take up to 4 weeks to be picked up by the shippers.

We occasionally do antique shows and other venues and reserve the right to cancel a transaction if the item has sold before we get home to our computer to check our Etsy store.

SHIPPING METHODS: Larger items ship in US via usps Parcel Post and Greyhound bus or even national freight lines. If you wish faster shipping on smaller items, convo me with your zip code before you buy so I can change the cheaper PP rate to Priority.

International: Smaller items can be shipped at 1st class rate, which can not be insured or tracked (under 13-oz). If you want insurance and tracking, convo me the name of your country before you buy so I can add the rate for Priority International to the listing. There is a limit to the size of box USPS will accept. And buyer is responsible for paying for all the taxes, fees and custom duties that their country charges on imported items.

Greyhound Bus: If you buy a large item that requires Greyhound shipping, please send me a convo with your phone number, as Greyhound requires it, thanks.
Shipping
See above for our shipping times, which vary depending on what payment method you use.

All items we ship in the US have tracking or Delivery Confirmation. We purchase our shipping labels through Etsy, so they should have a record of your tracking number with your payment to us.

WARNING: You should talk to your postmen about what they do with packages. Do they leave them by your door? In your hall? With a neighbor? Inform him, in writing, NOT to leave them on a porch or by your door if the security of those place is unreliable.

We set a very high bar on our packaging.

We use: USPS: 1st Class, Priority, Parcel (US only). We also ship via Greyhound Bus Lines: Furniture items can sometimes go Greyhound (you must pick up at your closest bus station that accepts freight, not all stations do). Freight: We often use Plycon, and they pick up items from us to take to you. Buyers negotiate directly with Plycon, and pay them for shipping, not us.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: large items can NOT be shipped to you. You are responsible for all customs fees / taxes charged by your country, and we can't change the values on customs forms. Delivery time varies country to country, and we are not responsible for delays or damages incurred in shipping abroad. We recommend you insure your purchases.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: Our jewelry rates reflect 1st class shipping, which can not be tracked or insured. If you want insurance, convo me with your country and I'll change shipping to reflect Priority and insurance.

Combined shipping rates (on items that can be safely shipped together, and that are purchased the same day) are available.
Refunds and Exchanges
Almost all of our items are antique or vintage, and pre-owned. Very RARELY will we have a 'mint' item, one that has never been unpackaged. We expect buyers to understand that all pre-owned items will have signs of use and wear.

We are thorough in our descriptions. If you have further questions or need more photographs to clarify something, please ask before you buy. All sales are final unless we have inadvertently made a substantial misrepresentation in the description.

In that case, notify us immediately. You then have 3 days to return the item in the same packaging, and when we have determined it is the one we shipped, a refund will be made. Return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. A re-stocking fee of 18% will be charged on all returns.

DAMAGED OR LOST ITEMS: In the event of a loss on your insured item, notify me and file an insurance claim. DO NOT RETURN the item to me, the carrier will need to inspect it on-site. Keep the box and ALL packaging material for them to pick up. We will do everything necessary to expedite the claim. REFUNDS on losses are made ONLY AFTER we have received the insurance payment from the carrier or you have, and it can take up to 6 weeks. In 15 years of online antique and collectibles sales, we haven't had many shipping losses, but they can happen.

We have a great deal of successful experience in safely getting merchandise to our buyers!
