The hand mirror was beautiful and arrived in plenty of time for its intended purpose - a birthday gift for my 14 year old niece. She was thrilled with it.
I'm here to bring rare & choice vintage and handmade goods to you lovely people!
My inventory is a brazen mélange of fine vintage and handcrafted works that celebrate our shared nostalgia for the “Good Old Days”: a time when craftsmanship, durability and charm, characterized even the most common objects.
I love finding high-quality, eclectic pieces that have survived the test of time; items rich with character that inspire the heart and mind, and infuse you home with history and a generous dash of soul. The mission of "Bon Vieux Temps" is simple: introduce delightful vintage & revitalized decorative accents (created by yours truly) that add charm to our Modern work & living spaces.
At Bon Vieux Temps, I believe it’s essential to be a resource for people who want to shop conscientiously. I am proud to exclusively practice eco-friendly techniques with exclusively non-toxic materials.
I take pride in bringing a passion for Science, Biology & Humanism to the work I do. Bon Vieux Temps is a uniquely sustainable store, where the innovative re-use of safe, reclaimed materials into hand-painted, handmade and restored vintage goods, allows me to maintain friendly prices for fellow lovers of the "Bon Vieux Temps"!
I am always happy to answer your questions! Send me a Convo on Etsy & I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Refunds and Exchanges
With that in mind, I dedicate a significant amount of time to describing and carefully capturing photos that accurately reflect the condition of every item in my collection.
Each item in my store is sold in its original, as-pictured vintage or handmade condition. I welcome all questions about any item that you have your eye on, before you make it yours. All sales are final, and I cannot accept returns. If any customer ever feels that an item they bought was misrepresented in the listing, please let me know, and I will set things right. Please carefully research the item you are interested in before purchasing, and feel free to ask questions; I am always happy to help!
>> CANCELING an ORDER:
If you ever need to cancel a purchase, please let me know ASAP.
I can sort out a full refund if the item hasn’t yet been shipped your way.
>> MISSING or DAMAGED PACKAGES:
Rest assured that every item is very carefully packaged, before being shipped. If you would like to add insurance to an order (i.e. in cases where it isn't automatically included), Convo me to let me know. I cannot be held liable for loss or damage to packages.
All handmade items are bound to be slightly unique, which, more often than not, adds to their appeal. Please contact me if you believe that any handcrafted item has been damaged; I promise to do all I can to make you are a happy customer.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am always thrilled to receive special requests to hand-make or custom color my handmade or vintage items, whenever possible.
