A country estate sale....the best kind. Found this apron here!
Hello! Happy Thanksgiving!


Consider traveling in a covered wagon to the wild west. Just as travelers would discard things that were not useful to them anymore, there was always someone who comes along afterward who needs it, wants it, or has a use for it. And what a find when it crosses your path.

Things are still this way today. There are treasures from yesteryear that just haven’t found their new owners and hopefully Cindy’s Prairie Treasures will hold the vintage items of your dreams. You may even find some repurposed pieces too.

In my treasure hunting adventures I have a shopping buddy.....of course, no fun by yourself, right? Julie has her own shop here on Etsy. She is a leatherworker and you can see her items at

We have a lot of fun. I remember us being out in rural Indiana at a barn sale in the middle of nowhere. We found this large trunk. It was gorgeous but very large. We were in a convertible this day and not really prepared for what we found....we could barely lift the thing. So here we are trying to get it in the back seat of the convertible, having fits of laughter that developed into silent know the kind. Finally we get it in there, turn around dusting the dirt off of our hands and realize that there have been people sitting in their cars watching us do this.....and they are all laughing out loud! We took a bow of course and hopped in and headed out laughing all the way.

So this shop will keep us out in the fields, barns, and yard sales....laughing all the way. I hope you enjoy our finds.

Frequently asked questions
Large item shipping

We know that shipping for large items can be expensive. Federal Express and Greyhound are the carriers we use. Greyhound is significantly less expensive however you are responsible for picking the item up at your nearest Greyhound station. There are additional charges involved in some cases such as packing materials or crating services and insurance. We will happily refund you for any shipping charge overages and we always welcome local pick up.

Don't forget, you can rent a truck with UHaul for $25.00. We are happy to work with your own courier as well.

International Shipping

Please be advised that many countries charge tariffs and taxes. We are not responsible for any of those charges so please check with your local agencies prior to placing your order. We do not offer refunds for any international orders and tracking is only available within the United States. Please be aware that sometimes the USPS duplicates tracking numbers. If this is the case with your order things usually get righted with 48 hours.

Unclaimed packages

All packages are insured and have a tracking number.The tracking information provided from the USPS will tell me that it is delivered to a post office but not to an individual person. If the purchaser fails to claim their package at the post office or does not receive their package and does not contact me within 14 days I will be unable to refund any part of the purchase.

Layaway Payments

We are happy to set up payment plans (layaway) for no additional costs however any payments made will be non-refundable regardless of whether or not the payments are completed or the merchandise is ever delivered. In other words, if you are unable to complete your layaway because of a change in your financial situation there will be no refunds for any payments made.
