Announcement   Hi, Welcome

This shop started out as vintage items and has evolved into a combination of vintage and hand made items. All vintage items basically came from an aunt. They were in my mother's attic and then went into mine. That is why I am so slow in posting them because some have memories attached. They have their own section. The other sections are for the hand made items.

***VINTAGE ITEMS, they have been stored away and forgotten for many years. They are now looking for a home where they will be cherished once again.

***HANDMADE ITEMS, I use only non-toxic glues and cleaners, they are water based, which means that when fully cured they will be water resistant, but NOT waterproof. Many of the metals that I use are coated - to protect the metal from the acidity of the skin and to protect the skin from metallic elements, also, all metals are lead and nickel free. So please do not use harsh chemicals, a soft moist cloth will do. I use Renaissance Wax (used by museums for restoration, cleaning and protection) to guard the finish on the metals.

***BIRTHSTONES - I have come to realize that if I ask 10 different "experts" for a list of monthly birthstones, I will receive 10 different lists. Finally, I just took a sheet and followed that list. So if you think that your birthstone is different from what I show, just let me know and I will accommodate you.

POLICIES

*Easy returns. Items can be returned within 7 days of receipt for a full refund, if in original condition. Return shipping to be paid by purchaser.

* Payment can be done through Pay-Pal, direct check out, Etsy gift cards, checks and money orders. Items paid by check will be shipped as soon as the check clears.

**INTERNATIONAL shipping - purchaser is responsible for all tariffs and customs fees that may apply. Please check with your local Post Office BEFORE purchase.

***Thank you for visiting my shop, I hope that you found some interesting items and that you will come back to browse again.
