About

Laura's Last Ditch: Like Grandma's kitchen, only bigger!

Grandmother had the best kitchenwares. But I don't simply criticize today's junk. Instead, I hunt practical, quality vintage kitchen utensils, small appliances, and cookware few others offer. Some of my vintage kitchenwares look pretty; others are homely little things, yet I squeeze more into my shop so you can find something just like Mom's or Grandma's--something made to last.

How did Laura's Last Ditch get its funny name?

I hunt for vintage kitchenwares people cannot find, then delight them by locating them--sometimes in the oddest of places. Let me help you in your last ditch effort to find something special.

Now let's raid some kitchen cupboards!

Frequently asked questions

More shipping info

Shipping options in order of speed from fastest to slowest:

Priority Express
Priority Mail
First Class Mail (in many cases, it's just as fast as Priority Mail)
Parcel Select / Media Mail / FedEx Ground

Sometimes I substitute shipping methods for something of equal speed or faster.

Tracking is included, except for flats (items mailed in an envelope, such as instruction manuals and recipe booklets).

I reclaim packing materials in order to keep shipping costs low and save natural resources. Printed receipts included upon request.

More info on refunds

Refund is for purchase price less s/h, unless my error necessitates the return. I accept returns for any reason, even if you've simply changed your mind (the only exception is props buyers, though, as it's easy to abuse the privilege).

Lost or damaged shipments

Lost items: full refund or replacement (if available) if tracking info says item didn't arrive within a reasonable amount of time, which varies by destination.

Damaged items: full or partial refund (I may request return or proof of damage). I double-box glassware and especially fragile items. I reserve the right to provide a replacement rather than a refund.

Gift orders or special requests

Should you require gift wrapping, a gift note, or have another special request, such as a longer return period, please ask.
