Welcome to DON'T THROW STONES. I've been selliSng antique and vintage items online for about 15 years and collecting for over 40 years. Shop with the knowledge that I sell items that I myself would buy and place in my home.

I have 2 other Etsy shops. I sell hand-crafted items and up-cycled vintage at Kay Creatives (https://www.etsy.com/shop/KayCreatives). I sell treasures from the desert Southwest at Sierra Madre Boutique (https://www.etsy.com/shop/SierraMadreBoutique).

~ DUE TO THE PANDEMIC - SHIPPING MAY BE DELAYED ON THE PART OF SHIPPING CARRIERS.

~ MY ITEMS are sourced from regional estate sales, yard and garage sales, and second-hand shops. Therefore, as "found" items, I cannot attest to their pedigree (whether their prior owners were smokers, had pets, etc.).

~ MY IMPERFECTS have some flaws that are either tiny chips in crystal, or nicks in ceramics that could be corrected/buffed out by a professional jeweler, but they do not detract from the use of the item.

~ MY CUSTOMER CARE: (1) I/we do have a non-smoking home. (2) I wash all china and glass that I acquire before I ship to my customers. (3) To do my part in helping keep our world a bit cleaner, I frequently pick up used boxes and packing materials from one of my local U-Haul stores. (4) When shipping glass and china, packing is not “pretty,” but it is effective. Bubble wrap, brown wrapping paper, Styrofoam peanuts, etc. protect items as best as possible for shipping and handling.

~ SHIPPING COSTS: All 3 major carriers (USPS, FedEx, UPS) now charge not only the weight of an item, but the size of the shipping carton, what they now call “dimensional weight shipping.” Shipping costs have risen 12-16% over the past 3 years.

~ SALES TAX: Etsy collects sales tax for those states who have imposed them. We sellers do not attach these taxes to our prices. They display on your final bill as a collected charge from Etsy.

~ ETSY’S INTERESTS: Etsy takes 5% commission on the sale of every item; 5% on shipping prices; 15% of off-sites ads - so they now reap 25% of all Etsy sellers' sales. As a result, I have had to raise the prices on all my items by $10. Sadly, this is the first price increase I have had to make in 5 years.

Don't Throw Stones - Purveyor of Antique & Vintage Home Goods

REDUCE - REUSE - RECYCLE!

Buying vintage helps save our planet. I scour garage and yard sales, second-hand shops, and estate sales for beautiful, perfectly reusable, antique and vintage items that I sell here in my shop. Shop with the assurance that I sell items that I would place in my own home. If you are looking for a particular item, message me and I'll see if I can hunt it down for you.
