Your Bit of History
My background is in historic preservation, urban re-development, and architecture history so it's a natural fit that I need things with a historic tilt around me at all times. Add to that a decade working in various architecture and interior design firms and there you have it, a career is born.
I have an interior design firm for client work and this fun Etsy shop with vintage items I use in my projects as well as sell for other people to add to their collections.
A touch of history can go a long way, reminding you of where you've been and how exciting where you are going is about to be.
Thanks for visiting our shop and keep coming back, we're always on the search!
Accepted payment methods
Here are the shipping options we consider and some details:
1. For small items we mostly use USPS and sometimes UPS or FedEx. For higher priced items we insure them and request tracking information but do NOT request signature confirmation since we know people don't hang around at home waiting for our delivery. If you prefer to have a signature confirmation please just let us know. It usually costs about $2.50.
2. Local delivery: We can deliver most items within the Boston area for a small fee that we establish with you, along with an agreed upon date and time of delivery.
3. For larger heavier items we prefer to use TSC Moving (www.tscmoving.com). Here is some information about how they work: "All items are fully insured, carefully blanket wrapped and delivered inside your home or office. The timing of the delivery varies depending on when our next scheduled trip is to your area as well as delivery location and timing of that trip. Delivery times range from a few days, if we can deliver on the same truck, to around 6 weeks or occasionally a little longer when demand is above average."
If you opt to use TSC we let you know when the next truck is scheduled to be in your area so that you have a sense of when the item would be coming to you. After that TSC will send you an email to confirm when the item is scheduled to be delivered and your availability to receive it. They will work with you to come up with a time or arrangement that is suitable for you if their proposed timing is not an option for you. Please note that the
4. For a more cost effective method of shipping larger heavier items, if you are outside of our delivery area, we use Greyhound Express. We pack up your item and bring it to our local Greyhound Station. You then will need to pick up the item at your local Greyhound station after you get a call that the item has arrived. This can take up to about two weeks. We've had success with this method of shipping but it is not as personalized as TSC and insurance issue can get tricky, so we do not suggest it for high priced items.
Some more important notes:
It is the buyer's responsibility to work with the shipping company on all damage claims. We do our very best to make sure items are packaged as carefully and appropriately as possible.
IF YOUR ITEM ARRIVES DAMAGED PLEASE KEEP ALL SHIPPING MATERIALS, TAKE MULTIPLE PHOTOGRAPHS DETAILING HOW THE PACKAGE WAS WRAPPED AND THE DAMAGE, AND THEN LET US KNOW. We will help put you in touch with the proper insurance channel depending on how the item was shipped but it needs to be between you and the shipper to sort out any claims.
All prices listed do NOT include tax. Buyer is responsible for claiming sales tax.
