Somewhat of a Ephemera nut.....the past is where I live most.

Inspired by the warmth and story that the Antique and Vintage tells, I have grown to love all facets of early Americana.

My personal specialty is early paper and vintage photography. I have been collecting all aspects for many years. My father had the most influence on the importance of these items, which seem to be becoming obsolete. Letterheads, correspondence, black and white photos and more. Each photo tells it's own story and it's in those stories that I lose myself.

The Antique's and Collectibles I sell will be American and Swedish and Norge-American (brought over in the first and second wave) furniture, Arts and Crafts and Mission design, folk and itinerant culture, paintings, Vintage garden, period lighting, textiles and rugs, original Native American artifacts, decorative arts and everyday objects.

These early objects bring me the soul and esthetics of our ancestors in their wonderful simple forms, graphics, and early paint or old surface.

This charm is paramount in my selection of inventory.

Your satisfaction is important to me, so please ask any pertinent questions before your purchase.

****All vintage or antique items are sold 'as is'. I am not an expert on everything I deal in. I *do* quiz my sources & research items as best I can, but, for example, I may be off by a small margin when dating an item. When I truly have no idea or am flat-out guessing, I will state this.

I ask in all listings to inquire about the items in advance of purchase so there is no disappointments or issues. If further photos are needed I will gladly send them.

If there is a serious issue with a purchase: Please contact us to discuss it. We're happy to accept returns under certain circumstances but we ask that you pay the return shipping and a 10% restocking fee will be charged. The items must be in the original condition that it was when we sent it to you. Once we receive the returned item, we will refund you the price for the item. Sorry, but we can not refund shipping costs. ~ Thanks for understanding.

Most items are shipped insured with tracking.

Please inspect your package immediately upon receiving. If there is damage PLEASE SAVE all packaging, as often the carrier requires a visual inspection of the package to determine if the claim will be covered.

Contact me immediately to file the claim with photos.

Again, Please contact me with any questions before you purchase.
Never forget that reasonable offers are accepted.

I accept Paypal, money orders and checks. Paypal should be made within 3 days, and money orders and checks should be received within 7 days. If you need more time, please email me at ( I will ship your item within three days of receiving payment.
