Always a Treasure Hunt...

I have been selling online for about 20 years. I started on an auction site and finally found a nice quiet place here on Etsy where my store looks like MY store and not an auction. I love setting my own prices, meeting wonderful people and of course selling my merchandise. I love finding vintage and recyclable treasures and I love designing custom fabric garlands for special occasions.

Until I started selling on Etsy, I just randomly found and sold items, now I have finally found my niche and I love it! I find myself always hunting for just the right item to share with fellow Etsians. It's becoming my obsession!

Welcome and thanks for visiting my shop! I appreciate every visitor, even if you're just browsing! My items will probably have no rhyme or reason. I may list things haphazardly and sporadically. I love all things and try to find something crafty in everything I touch.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Money Order
Payment is expected within 3 days. If it is going to be longer, please let me know.

I accept PayPal to ensure secure money transfers. You can also send a check or money order but it will take longer to ship your item. Once your payment has cleared I will ship within 5-7 business days. Sorry, I work full time and have to get to Post Office on the fly.

If you need to cancel a purchase or change something, please Convo me immediately. I will do my best to work with you. It is important you are happy. However, once an item ships it is NOT refundable.
Please be sure your Etsy address is correct so your package arrives safely and timely. If you have a special shipping request, please contact me BEFORE you make your payment. I will adjust your order to reflect the changes.

Please purchase insurance because I cannot be responsible for any loss you encounter and I do not automatically offer insurance, although I do often get a delivery confirmation so the merchandise can be tracked. I do everything in my power to make sure your item arrives safely.

I will ship Parcel Post or First Class with USPS, and occasionally use UPS but not very often. If you prefer one over the other, please Convo me.

I usually ship merchandise as items are sold, and you will usually receive the item within 7-10 days of purchase. I do not ship internationally as a rule but am willing to bend on this for actual shipping cost.
Refunds and Exchanges
I do not offer refunds unless the item description was misleading or totally incorrect. Please email me BEFORE you purchase to ensure you are getting what you want. I can take extra pictures or measure something for you.
If you are totally unhappy with your purchase, I will exchange for another product or give you credit for a later purchase.
Additional policies and FAQs
Many of the vintage items that I am selling have been stored away for many years so they could understandably have that wonderful antique shop smell, thinning fabrics or other small imperfections. When possible, I hand wash them, line dry and press with a light spray of starch. Vintage items are rarely perfect, so I will describe the items to the best of my ability and if you receive your product and it isn't perfect it's because I didn't notice it and not because I misrepresented it. If there is any large amount of staining or repair that is needed, I will note that in the description. If you want to know anything else about something you're interested in, please convo me.
