Thank you! This is amazing! Someone really put their heart and soul into this lunchbox/handbag! I will display it proudly. Thank you for the attention to packing, and the quick ship!

Great item shipped quickly and carefully
American southwest, North woods, Asian, European finds from the late 19th / early 20th century.
I started Bella Laine upon returning to my little hometown in Michigan after a long and happy career in product design & development on the west coast. I returned to help family, and decided to stay for awhile.
I am sorting my way through way too many family pieces, and selling the extras. For a little spice, I've added some of the Asian, Mexican, Southwest and European pieces Ive picked up on my travels, or find in auctions. To add a little panache, and because I LOVE design history, I research just about every item, and give you the "provenance" or history of what you purchase. I love my new life!
I hope you enjoy your purchase as much as Ive enjoyed the process of selling it!
Owner, Curator, Buyer
I grew up in Michigan, got my BFA, then fled west with a case of wanderlust. I traveled to Latin America and Asia for my work as a designer. My shop reflects my love for those cultures, mixed in with southwest and Euro influences right here at home!
I sell on etsy, and also in my two shops here in Michigan. Some of the shop items are also on-line. Sometimes a product is sold in the shop while still listed on etsy. I try to take the selling page down as soon as possible, but occasionally I get a sale on-line for an item sold in the shop. It is rare, but part of business when selling on-line and in a shop. My apologizes when this happens.
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
I cannot take responsibility if the shipper damages your item. You will need to keep everything together, take pictures, and file a claim with the shipper.
I use clean recycled padding and packaging whenever possible. If you prefer new padding and a new box, please let me know.
If you need your package to be received by a certain date, or want it sent Expess, Priority, Fed Ex or UPS just convo me to let me know.
I welcome International buyers. Please email/ convo me you country so I can change the selling page to show your correct shipping costs. Please note: after my package is received in your customs, your country is responsible for it. If it is lost you must give them the customs # I provide to track it. I can not be responsible for the package outside the US. (Also, please check your duty /tariffs on line for your item. Sometimes your country will add additional costs for duty on certain items.)
Refunds and Exchanges
I DO NOT ACCEPT RETURNS on most vintage items, unless there is a significant difference between my description and photos, and the actual item. So please read the description, inspect the photos and use the Zoom feature. And feel free to convo me with any questions or concerns.
I do research almost every item. I try to use sources such as museums, and other trusted sites and I pass on my research to you. Even though I have a degree in Fines Arts and Design, I am not a Certified Appraiser, so I don't know if the research I find is always 100% accurate.
Vintage and/ or any pre-owned, pre-handled item will by nature have flaws, tears, chips, flecks, warp, discoloration, old maker's marks, and scents found in the real world. If I overlooked a small flaw, please know it was unintentional and will NOT qualify your purchase for a return or refund.
If an item appears to be broken in a way I did not list, or seems significantly damaged, then it probably has been damaged in shipping. YOU need to make the claim, but please convo me immediately. If it is a significant amount, please call the post office and make your claim ASAP. it usually takes them about 1 month to reimburse.
Also, YOU MUST KEEP THE ITEM TOGETHER WITH THE PACKAGING FOR A POST OFFICE CLAIM. The US Post Office or UPS may want to see everything before paying on the claim.
You will not see any item with the same eye as I…it is just not possible. So I ask for reason when buying vintage items from me and please remain aware I do not offer a return or refund option on vintage items.
Thanks so much for your understanding!
