Announcement   .
I enjoy adding unique items from Estate Sales and Vintage Flea & Antique Markets to my shop daily. So check back again often.

Most of the items I sell are from estates or auctions. All items are old (antique or vintage); therefore they are "Not Perfect". Some may be shabby chic and recycled by me. Items that are cottage chic and repainted are distressed and made to look that way. Most jewelry is vintage, antique or handmade by me.

I try to describe my items as accurately as possible and include pictures. I try to point out any damage and note condition problems such as blemishes, cracks, chips or paint wear. Remember VINTAGE items have all the dings and flaws that make them the antique that they are today...

Any props used in photos are not included in the sale.

About

Ever since childhood I have considered myself an "Artist" of some sort.

It all started when my Aunt Shirley bought me a "Plaster of Paris" figurine to paint. I learned to make it my own through color, texture and finishing. That led to buying my own kiln and teaching ceramics. I was 10 years old.

Then at age 12 instead of playing outside during summer break, I signed up for a sewing class at my local Singer Sewing store. This led later on in years to making dolls and selling them at craft shows. We got Pretty Big and used to do Country Folk Art shows that travel around the country.

When I recently retired from NJ to Sunny Florida, I left behind my Shabby Chic decor. I truly missed the gorgeous "Whites and Creams" and the distressed Farmhouse look as I now have dark Tommy Bahama furnishings. So now I can still enjoy the LOOK for a little while before selling those special pieces that I am missing so much.

So now I have a garage and spare room full of gorgeous finished and unfinished Shabby Chic creations.

I also enjoy recycling old vintage jewelry but it has been put on the back burner since developing my LOVE of Shabby Chic upcycling.

    I have accomplished the Art of finding Beauty in the most simplest and ornate of old vintage pieces. I have developed my "Signature Style" of Fancy Schmancy Vintage in the old ugly pieces turned into Fancy pieces by "ME".

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
  • Check
Payment
My preferred method of payment is PAYPAL.

I accept payment by MC, VISA, and PAYPAL The easy process of paying by PAYPAL is done in under one minute. It allows you to use credit cards, debit cards, e-cheques, etc. It is that simple, secure and efficient. Whatever Etsy allows, so do I.

I also accept money orders (USPS only)
Shipping
I ship through USPS and I use confirmation shipping (USA only). You will receive a tracking no. Please contact me if you prefer insurance on your item under $25. Most items over $25 will be sent insured in the US. (domestic only)

To qualify for "Combined Shipping", you must make a ONE TIME payment for all items so they can be shipped together. I will get back to you once everything is packed as to the price.

International orders, no insurance will be given. It is the responsibility of the buyer if anything is lost or damaged. Not responsible for any additional Custom charges that your Country charges you.

If you live in a country and my "EVERYWHERE ELSE" price is much lower or higher than the actual price for the shipping, I will convo you as to what the adjusted amount will be. I will do that as soon as your order is packaged and weighed and before the item is shipped out It is very hard to give a quote on an item to a particular country unless you place the order. It is best to place the order and use the "everywhere else" amount and we can go on from there. If you have any questions about this, convo me please.
Refunds and Exchanges
Please ask all questions as Returns are not Accepted.
Items are sold as is.

I do not accept any returns, exchanges or cancellations.
