Fast delivery great shop
I started selling items on etsy for fun and now I'm addicted to searching for unique vintage items wherever I can. I enjoy building my own personal collection and transitioning out older items I have had for years. I especially love toys from the 1980s (when I was a wee thing) and those I don't keep for myself (I only have so much shelve space) I sell here.
My basic process involves 4 simple steps:
1) Seek (the best part - ahhh the anticipation)
2) Find (yay! I found something cool!)
3) Clean (the more awesome something is the more likely it was buried in the garage for 10+ years)
4) Decision time: keep or SELL :)
I love searching for fun items – especially those that remind me of my childhood. Most are found tucked away in my childhood home. My mom gave me the “you never know what you might find” attitude. I also help her manage her etsy shop: PastEncounters
Jon is my husband and while he collects his own set of vintage items (namely nintendo items) he helps out from time to time with shipping and other bits and pieces. And of course with finding those items with experience!
Accepted payment methods
- Other Method
Payment will only be accepted using Paypal. You can use your credit card through Paypal even if you do not have a Paypal account. Simply check out with Paypal but select to pay with your debit or credit card when prompted. There is more information in this Etsy article: https://www.etsy.com/ca/help/article/361
The exception to Paypal is if you are local (Toronto) and would like to arrange to pick up the item. In this case you must first contact me and ensure that pick-up/meeting centrally is possible (Toronto is big and I don't drive). If it is mutually agreed upon that pick-up/meeting centrally will work you may pay in cash - simply choose "other" under payment options AND then use the coupon code TORONTO to indicate you would like to arrange for pick-up.
Send me a message with any questions.
Shipping will be done within 3-5 business days of payment being cleared. Please note this this may be affected by statutory holidays.
All INTERNATIONAL purchases/orders made after May 31 2015 will be shipped by airmail (hence the change in shipping costs). The time for surface mail delivery was often much longer than estimated by the carrier. Please message me in advance if you would like another shipping option BEFORE purchasing an item.
BUYERS ASSUME ALL RESPONSIBILITIES FOR TAXES, DUTIES AND ADDITIONAL COSTS ONCE THE PACKAGE HAS BEEN SHIPPED.
I combine shipping whenever possible. If shipping costs differ by more than $1, money will be refunded to your paypal account.
For shipping boxes I am mostly reusing boxes I already have or creating them from boxes I already have.
If you are local (Toronto) and would like to arrange to pick up the item you may pay in cash - simply choose "other" under payment options AND then use the coupon code TORONTO to indicate you would like to arrange for pick-up.
