About

Dusty Digger Lise's History

In 2006, my dad died and I had to clean out my parents' house. Under their bed, I found thousands (yes, thousands) of photos. Through those photos, I glimpsed a family link to history -- World Wars, homesteading, prairie towns, early baseball. etc. History jumped alive for me. Suddenly, and maybe for the first time, it was relevant. It was real. It was where I came from.

As I researched and savored my family photographs and history, I found myself gravitating toward similar snapshots in time that I found in antique shops, junk shops, flea markets, and estate sales. It may be other people's history, but it is still Americana. I grew to especially love old magazine ads, but also other old paper - books, photos, maps, postcards, etc. In the case of magazine ads, often the magazines I find are in poor repair (spines broken, covers ripped). Most are two steps from the trash. Sometimes IN the trash. It is satisfying to rescue them, blow off the dust and save what I can. And if I can only save small pieces -- well, that's why I also offer ephemera packs.

In that spirit, this shop offers these items to Etsy buyers to collect, enjoy, or use in some new project.

P.S. My shop name is DustyDiggerLise, and I come by it genetically:
That little muddy munchkin standing in front of the car in my avatar is my mother.

Payment
I'm happy to cancel an order as long as I have not already shipped it.
Shipping
Right now, I ship to U.S. only.

COMBINED SHIPPING? YES, when items can be shipped in one package. Once you have paid for shipping on the first item, additional similar items ship for free.
This policy applies to MOST of my inventory -- vintage ads, illustrations, postcards, swap cards, photos, and maps.

*My aim is to charge actual shipping plus a nominal amount to cover packing materials. If I can save you money, I will.

ABOUT BOOKS: Books under 16 oz (after packaging) are generally sent via US First Class or Priority. Heavier ones go via Media Mail to save postage.

IN A RUSH? I don't do special mailing (overnight shipping, Fedex) but I'm happy to get it to the post office quickly. The post office usually delivers my items 2-5 days after I mail them, and most often 2-3. I live in central US, so that helps!
Refunds and Exchanges
Items in my shop are vintage. I describe or show any flaws that I see. Please see all photos, and read descriptions. I'm happy to answer questions.

Of course, after you'd received an item, if I've missed describing something, do let me know. It's VERY important to me that you feel respected and happy with the transaction. I hope that helps you buy with absolute confidence.

If an item arrives damaged or unsatisfactory (a rare occurrence, but it could happen), I am happy to work with you. Just follow these guidelines.

1. Please let me know within 14 days of receipt of your item.

2. I may ask for photos of the damage and/or for the item to be returned before issuing a refund.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you are looking for a particular item, especially a magazine ad or swap card, feel free to convo me. I have many not yet listed.

Custom Order: Need an ephemera pack (cutouts / clippings / paper scraps) on a certain subject? I may be able to put together a pack on your desired subject.
