About

Let's Sell This Old Stuff

I have always loved things old even before I WAS old. That little seed was planted very early but never came to sprout until just recently. Looking around my house and seeing all these things gathered (hoarded???) one has to think, "why not jump into the fray and move these things to a new home and have fun doing it." Then along came Etsy. Perfect fit!!!

Hence, my vintage shop.

Also, having been a professional seamstress for 20 years so I will be offering from time to time tons of vintage sewing supplies.

I'm looking forward to making new friends through this new venue and making others happy by offering and selling items that they will enjoy.

Frequently asked questions
How long will it take to ship my item?

I will ship ASAP. When an item is listed I search for a box immediately to determine the shipping costs. The item will then be ready to be labeled and shipped usually within one day.

I carefully wrap and take extra precautions to pack securely. Most of my packing supplies are clean and new. But sometimes the situation calls for a special size box that only can be found elsewhere.

This home is smoke free and pet free.

What shipping options do you mostly use?

I use USPS priority if the item is over 13 ounces. Anything under that weight can be shipped First Class for much less cost. If the item needs to be shipped across country, say Denver and west, then the cost could possibly be lowered by using the flat rate boxes provided by USPS. I would need to have a contact (email) from you before the order is placed to change the shipping option for you.

Or, I would ship using the lowest rate and then refund the difference if it's over a dollar. I conduct my shop in an honest way using the principle of "how would I want to be treated as a customer."

You have my promise that even after purchase I will attempt to find a lower shipping cost and make a refund over $1.50.

What about insurance?

USPS priority shipping provides at no extra cost insurance up to any item valued at $50 or less. For anything over that value shipping priority there is an additional fee for insurance. If you want insurance for an item valued over $50 please email me before ordering to calculate this extra cost. IF YOU DO NOT WANT THE EXTRA INSURANCE FOR A PURCHASE OVER $50 JUST LET ME KNOW IN THE 'NOTE TO SELLER'. Priority shipping also provides free tracking.

Insurance is not free for First Class (any item under 13 ounces.) So please let me know before ordering if you want insurance so that could be calculated in the final cost. IF NO INSURANCE IS REQUIRED PLEASE ENTER A COMMENT IN NOTE TO SELLER "NO INSURANCE IS NEEDED."

How do you ship perfume?

I learned very quickly from others that extra precautions must be taken.

Each bottle containing liquid will have the cap securely taped. I will protect the finish on the lid by covering first with tissue. I take precaution not to put tape on the label.

If the perfume is in the original box and if I think they should be separated I will put the bottle in its own zip lock bag separate from the box. Sometimes this is not necessary. Then I use bubble wrap and pack securely.

If the bottle is empty I still use the same precautions with the cap. I will also use a zip lock bag and bubble wrap for protection.

Perfume is usually sent First Class.

How do you obtain your items?

I first started gathering things from around the house to declutter. Most things in my home are "early marriage."

Then Goodwill stores became a favorite place. Now I favor garage sales and estate sales. Whole house sales are the best because the the whole scenario of a life lived is represented.

At first just getting an inventory beyond my own stuff was the main thing. Now I have become much more selective and particular in my gathering and am starting to see areas that I want to have a focus. I am developing an eye for the unusual, (in my price range, that is) and rejecting items that have flooded the market.

The saying goes "what you have comes to you" and I am sometimes given items.

Do you take returns?

I do not take returns. However, I would try to make things right if there is a problem. I try to honestly describe and list as best I can. I will point out all the flaws as I see them. At times a detail may be over looked which may seem like misrepresentation. I would appreciate knowing if it seems that way to you.

I realize that judging the size just by a photo and measurements don't always paint a true picture. Please zoom in and look at the photos carefully and please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions.

What about sales tax?

Sales tax will only be charged to individuals living in Connecticut. Etsy will automatically apply CT sales tax to your order if you live in CT.

At this time Etsy collects sales tax in PA and WA and remits. I will continue to collect in CT and remit to the state.
