About

Vintage finds recycled, reinvented and reloved!

I have received many notes from customers who tell me that something they purchased reminds them of time spent with a loved one who is no longer around. The vintage treasure connects them with the past happy times again.

It all starts with the search for vintage items that are ready for a new life as a favorite decor item. This is much harder than it sounds as I am sure most of these are still tucked away in a grandmother's closet. I do check thrift stores, flea markets and sometimes eBay as well.

Sounds funny but one of my favorite things is the cleaning and ironing of the vintage linens. It took a while but I did find a secret formula for getting stained and dingy items sparking clean and white.

I also have a passion for vintage silver and love to bring a tarnished piece back to a bright silver finish. It does sometime take a long time but I feel it is good therapy! I try to do this when my daughter is not around since she loves the tarnished silver pieces as they are.

This is very rewarding for someone who appreciates the time, energy and creativity of the past generations of crafters. The prospect of being able to renew the life of these treasured items is exciting for me and I hope for the purchaser as well.

I do my best marketing on Etsy so my items will be found and sell. I can't make more if I don't move out the ones I have in my shop!

    Having always loved textiles and vintage items I now find great pleasure in rescuing and restoring treasures from the past. Finding a new home for a vintage treasure is truly a passion and I hope I never have to stop!

Frequently asked questions
Gift wrapping and packaging

For standard packaging all items are wrapped twice in blue tissue paper and tied with a ribbon and a shop sticker.
For pillow covers a mesh washing bag is also included as well as extra pom poms if item has this trim.

Custom and personalised orders

Please feel free to ask me about any custom size or color pillow covers you might like. There is no extra charge for this, just the standard price I would normally price the item at.
I have a lot of embroidered and crochet items as well as vintage linen and damask that I can use to create a beautiful custom item for your home or gifting.

Shipping

Shipping charges are set by weight so a heavy linen tablecloth costs more to ship than a small pillow cover or some napkins.
I always ship the lowest rate so if you need faster shipping please contact me before you purchase and I can let you know the options for that item.
Please note that international shipping can take up to 6 weeks for surface mail. There is an option to upgrade if you need it faster but you must contact me before purchasing.

Quality of my vintage linens

Please be assured that all my vintage linens offered for sale are in excellent condition (unless otherwise noted) and have been restored and pressed ready for use or gifting.

I would not offer any items that are in original as is condition, stained or damaged. If I feel there is minor wear or repair that would not affect the enjoyment of using the item I would show it in a photo and note it in the description.
