About FolkloreAndYore

On Etsy since 2013

As I have gotten older, I find myself looking backward more often

The stories behind each find: who and when it was made. How it was passed from one generation to the next. The research of this hobby of collecting vintage and the joy that it brought, turned it into a job that I love. With the passing of loved ones and looking at and holding something they treasured, makes you appreciate things beyond your own taste. "Where did they get it?", "Why did they keep it?" The answers to these questions paint a landscape in our minds of a time long gone. Simpler pleasures, a slower pace, a feeling of community. Talking with other shop owners, large and small, many started out similarly. Maybe outgrew the space in their home, wanted to share it with others, needing or wanting to turn it over so they could continue their quest. It is a very fascinating field. The people I have met, either as customers or other collectors, are inquisitive, easy going and like to talk...which fits well with me. Decades of working the same 9-5, dreading a Monday, well...never again. Do what you love, love what you do...I never thought that was possible. I do now.

Welcome to Very Old Stuff's Etsy online shop! We have been selling online since 1998 and have a proven positive track record of sales in that time. We also occupy a large booth at a local antique mall. We are a registered business in the state of Indiana. Although we are new to Etsy, our same fast and courteous values will apply here.

Accepted payment methods

Paypal Mastercard Visa American Express Discover Apple Pay Klarna Giftcard
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
Almost everything we sell is old and used. Most found at estate sales and auctions that we frequent. Once in awhile we will find "new old stock" but not regularly. We try, to the best of our knowledge, to describe each items general physical and working condition. Please contact us if there is something specific you would like to know about it. With that in mind, refunds are limited. If we grossly describe the item incorrectly or it is damaged in shipping, we will gladly refund your money and shipping charges. For anything other than those reasons such as changing ones mind, buyers remorse, thought it was larger...we will consider each case individually. We want you to be happy with your purchase.
Payment
Through our online stores, the only payment method we accept is through Paypal. Paypal protects both you and I when using the service. All Paypal related fees are absorbed by us.
Shipping
We ship to United States only at this time. Our normal shipping service is UPS Ground. Although we do at times use USPS. We normally only ship to the confirmed Paypal address of the buyer. If you need it shipped to different address, please contact us before before purchasing. I normally will have your package on the way to you within 24 hours but sometimes it will take 48. Of course with weekends and holidays, it will take some additional time. Insurance is required and is included in the charges shown for shipping.
Additional policies and FAQs
We are always looking for toys, ephemera and other unusual items to sell at our retail location and have bought large lots of them at a time. We pay competitive prices based on recent internet sales of the same items. If you are looking to sell your collection or item, please contact us on our website: http://www.veryoldstuff.com
