About

Family tree charts and notebooks for geneology of ancestry and descendants, stationery, printable cards, art, gift ideas and vintage items.

Family tree chart genealogy posters are my best seller, often purchased for birthday gifts, Christmas, Mothers/Fathers Day, new baby, bridal shower, wedding, family reunion, housewarming, anniversary and friendship. My illustrated designs are fun, nature-loving, art-appreciating style. Check out my all ancestry/descendant charts, notebook and editable, printable, digital-file-templates at http://www.etsy.com/shop/FreshRetroGallery?section_id=7206830

Like an eclectic shop? You are at the right place! Two adjectives in the name FreshRetroGallery set us apart and describe what’s available. Family tree charts, books, printable files, original paintings, ceramics, toy motorcycles, friendship bracelets, metal art upcycled pieces, clip art, stationery, and postcards are “fresh” — new, unique designs and handmade. The “retro” vintage line of home decor, useful housewares and mixed media art supplies are blasts from the past. Together they make our “gallery” an interesting place to browse and shop.

FreshRetroGallery is located in the small town Solomon, population of about 1,100 people, just off I-70 in the Central Midwest USA. The Solomon and Smoky Hill River join in this beautiful Kansas agricultural valley. My birth heritage is Appleton, Minnesota, and my husband Stan’s is Milbank, South Dakota. Our European ancestors are from Norway and Germany.

The lower floor of our home is our work space. My photo studio at the south end doubles as a second guest bedroom.

Stan cleans antiques, retro pieces and old materials to bring back their fresh sparkle at a vintage porcelain kitchen sink. His workshop is full of “finds” that will be potentially useful again as well as unusual, obsolete and forgotten items that make striking conversation pieces. He makes metal art and other items for the home from vintage materials. He “picks” and creates things with a “look” and for green-thinkers who reuse to responsibly preserve our environment. Antiques, retro items and collectibles bring history and character to boring spaces. They help make younger generations aware of a past lifestyle that contrasts today’s throw-away society.

My drawing room is filled with art supplies and inspiration collections. I sketch ideas and create at an old drafting table. An antique oak courthouse desk is where I work out digital designs using my iMac which also helps me make the gallery live.

In a room we’d previously used as a playroom when our children were young, a savaged table-tennis (ping-pong) table has been recycled for shipping, handling and storage beneath. Our son built extra storage shelving. My paper cutter for trimming mailing labels sits on top of an antique department store wood and glass display case that holds old board games and puzzles which may eventually be listed for sale.

The natural, aged parchment look of very old important documents which are worth saving forever inspired the paper choice to complete the design of my 19 x 13" ancestry charts and my 22 x 8" descendant charts. This fine paper is also available in 60-sheet packs, and 20-pack stationery sets of 8.5 x 11" sheets with matching A2 or No. 10 envelopes which are convenient to use with my instant download printable card designs you can print from your computer at http://www.etsy.com/shop/FreshRetroGallery?section_id=7206829

Check out the upcycled wine bottle metal art for home decor and event centerpieces at https://www.etsy.com/shop/FreshRetroGallery?section_id=7206857&ref=shopsection_leftnav_3

My limited edition series of Christian postcards are sold in 20-packs at http://www.etsy.com/shop/FreshRetroGallery?section_id=7206831

When you make a purchase at FreshRetroGallery, you are a blessing to us! You deserve the highest degree of attention we can give. We do our very best to send all orders immediately. Thank you so much for shopping.

Frequently asked questions

Can you split a set of family tree charts or notebooks and send it to two different locations?

I can’t split a pair that comes as a single order quantity. If you want to me to send to two locations, please order one set for each address; use a separate order for each so you may set up the proper shipping address in each order.

Or, I can send one set to you for you to split, re-package and re-send to two different locations. Mailing tubes are available at most USPS offices and stores which sell office and shipping supplies.

Is insurance plus signature confirmation available?

Your order will be sent by USPS the least expensive way possible. Standard shipping and handling prices are low because optional services are not automatically included unless you choose to add them. For protection against damage and theft, insurance plus signature confirmation add-on is available. Please add it to your cart before you place your order. You will be required to sign for delivery when you add this option.

If the sig/insurance option doesn’t show up as an upgrade while you are checking out, you may order it for one flat rate here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/228648397/insurance-and-signature-confirmation-add?ref=shop_home_active_1 .

For other special arrangements or questions, please contact me prior to placing your order.

If I send you a free-shipping-custom-listing-request, question or comment, when will I hear back?

I'll get back to you as soon as possible; usually within about 2 hours, 7 days a week; at least, within 2 business days. Auto-reply is set up during vacation when noted.

FREE SHIPPING on Family Tree Charts and Family Tree Notebooks is a deal available only when you contact me to request a "custom listing". I'll send you a special link to order from. Minimum is 5/10 in USA and International minimum is 6/12. Please request this before ordering because the offer is not available with a standard listing where shipping is automatically added. Thank you for purchasing large quantities for:
• wholesale-to-resell-retail gift shops or boutiques
• personal gifts, reunions or party favors
• genealogical groups or societies
• educational projects

How much time do you need to prepare an order for shipping?

Orders received before 7 am CT/CDT are usually processed the same day M-F; weekend orders on Monday. My schedule rarely requires full 2-day processing.

Visit You > Purchases and Reviews to check order status, view the receipt and track packages.

Shipping transport time estimates are First Class USPS. Heavier items and media require a few more days. With USPS, 8-week delays in the USA can happen—we don’t know why. Estimates are not guaranteed except for Express Mail upgrade (available in USA for select items); if you don’t see the option, please contact me BEFORE ordering to find out the cost and have me set it up for you.

Please double check the shipping address—it has taken 14–32 weeks for undeliverable packages to be returned to me.

Will multiple quanities be sent in one package? Is there a better deal on shipping if I order more than one item from your shop?

Multiple quantities of the same item will arrive together in the same package.

Multiple items which don’t fit well together are sent in separate packages and may not always arrive on the same day.

Special combined-shipping price in the event that multiple items are purchased at the same time will automatically be calculated in the shopping cart.

Shipping includes postage, packaging and handling. I reuse boxes and packaging materials as much as possible.

Please contact me before you order if you have questions.

What about International shipping? [FreshRetroGallery is located in Kansas, United States of America]

Standard First Class International Mail used for light packages such as Family Tree Charts normally takes 6–10 days to most locations worldwide after the 1- or 2-day processing “shipped date”. Heavier packages normally take 1–3 weeks, however, some may be delayed as long as 10 weeks. These delays do not happen often, but it can happen. The reason(s) for delays which can occur in United States and International Postal Service is unknown. Some delays may be due to customs legislation where your package may be opened for inspection. Shipping upgrade to Express Mail International service for a set of family trees normally takes 3–5 days to most destinations after the 1- or 2-day processing “shipped date”. Tracking is not available outside USA.

This is a gift for friends/family who live far away. Can you send it to them directly?

Yes, it’s sensible to have gifts sent direct! Please use the gift recipient’s shipping address for accurate delivery.

You may leave a note for me when you check out to specifically request special gift tag arrangements—I will be happy to add your personal note and names on the tag for gifts being drop-shipped.

I don’t include detailed price information in any package I send; however, International orders require the US dollar price on the outside of the package on the Customs label.
