Whether you are a DIY person, a lover of handmade, a crafter, or just love handmade things, Gifted Memory is where you'll find what you need. Finding that unique gift that only speaks to the person you give it to, can truly be considered a gift from the heart for it represents your appreciation for all the nostalgic, for homemade goodness and happy memories.

My husband Dave and I are retired and live in York, PA. We have 4 grandchildren. We love sharing with them the things we find from “those days” and expressing our appreciation for the handmade traditions of preserving and recycling the things we love. We are “Vintage Addicts” and proud of it!

Our gifts are driven by a pure passion for the nostalgic and making "Nostalgically New" gifts for you.

Returns and exchanges
All our items are inspected prior to shipping. If you are unhappy for any reason; please email us as soon as possible. We promise to work diligently to resolve all issues. We will allow a return on this item within 7 days of receipt; shipping costs are not refundable. Return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer.
We offer PayPal and Credit Cards for all purchases. 6% Sales Tax must be added for residences of PA.
OUR Promise: We will promptly ship the same day that full payment is verified if possible; or the very next business day your order is completed, usually. We use excellent packing techniques to ensure your purchase arrives safely.

OUR METHODS: We generally ship smaller items First Class Mail. We will send you the tracking number. If you would like insurance for an additional fee, please contact us and we will let you know the Post Office cost.
Large items and some higher priced items will be shipped Priority Mail. If you want insurance, please contact us before purchase.
If the cost to ship is less expensive with UPS Ground, we will ship with UPS

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING- We will ship to almost anywhere. Most of the items we sell are light weight and can be shipped in small boxes or envelopes. These packages can be shipped First Class Mail which is the least expensive. However there are some drawbacks to this choice. First there is not any tracking information and once we mail the package at the Post Office neither you nor us can track where it is in the process. We also do not have any idea how long it will take for delivery. The usual time is from one week to one month, but on rare occasions it can take longer. Not knowing and not having any information can be stressful for both of us. Secondly there is no ability to insure the package with First Class Mail. Since we have no control over the postal system, we cannot be responsible once we deliver the package to the Post Office. Having said all of the above, we have ship many items internationally without an incident.

Any duties or fees assessed are the responsibility of the buyer.
Our policy is not to mark custom forms as gifts, because we do not have personal knowledge it is a gift as required by law.
