"Shopping" at House of Mom

Seems I have always had a knack for finding things that are different, unusual, useful, old or, sometimes, just out there. If it catches my eye, strikes a chord, stirs curiosity or awakens a memory, I gotta take it home! The running joke is, that if you need it or can't find it anywhere else, ask mom to find it or go "shopping" at house of mom.
Everyone (and I do mean everyone) who has ever been to my house that is looking for something, usually finds it here or knows they can count on me to find it, much to my husbands
My kids have all furnished their homes in one way or another through "house of mom". Family and friends who need items for functions, decorating or holidays can always find it at "house of mom".
Since it seems to be the thing I am best at, I thought that perhaps I could help everyone else who is looking for that special ________ (fill in the blank). What a wonderful thing to be able to do!! I can enjoy the hunt for the items, and get the joy of finding new homes for them!! And if you don't see it in my shop, ask me, I just may have it!!

ITEM CONDITION: Due to the nature of Vintage and Antique items, ALL items sold in our shop are in an "AS IS" and "AS FOUND" condition. We have no knowledge of the life an item or items have had prior to our obtaining them. We cannot guarantee they have been in a smoke free, pet free or other allergan free environment. We do clean all items that we can. Linens and wearables are hand-washed in Woolite, line dried, pressed (if possible) photographed, and then placed in zip type storage bags along with an unused dyer sheet to ensure that they arrive to the customer fresh, clean and ready to use. Hard goods are cleaned whenever possible, however, sometimes the "patina" is what adds to the uniqueness of the item and we leave it alone. Books, paper and other such goods, are all treated to a charcoal and baking soda deodorizing process to ensure any acquired odors from smoke, mustiness or other scents are removed as much as possible. They are then photographed and placed into a zip type bag or other appropriate holder to ensure they arrive as scent free as possible. We advise all customers to please make sure they have received all information, additional photos if needed or received replies to any questions they may have had prior to purchase.
ITEM PRICING: We price our items according to current market, condition of item and rarity. If a purchaser wishes to buy a quantity of items, please contact us, we should be able to discount some of the items. We can and will consider fair offers on items seen on our Etsy shop. We do mean a fair offer though, please do not place "low ball" offers on items, as this is how we augment our income.
