Item received exactly as advertised. It was shipped and received super fast, and was packaged very securely. Seller was a great help during this transaction and I would purchase again from her.

Even though there is a flaw in this ring, no one really notices unless I draw attention to it. It is a big piece of mother of pearl with a nice band and a great setting. The price was right and I am happy with it. Well packaged and it arrived in the blink of an eye. Thanks ladies!!

We can't resist shiny objects

We started our shop to indulge our own lust for vintage jewelry. It gave us an excuse (did we really need one?) to hit flea markets and estate sales and keep jewelry top-of-mind (like it wasn't already) every day. We're humbled by the wonderful response we've gotten from Etsy buyers and really enjoy the personal contact with people who love vintage as much as we do.

We decided that running the shop together was a way to give it the love it needs without making life crazy since we both have other work lives and endless interests. We share the buying. I tend to do the jewelry photos (Susan) and research the pieces. Laura does the bulk of the pricing and descriptions. If one of us has less time to devote in any given week, the other person picks up the slack.

Our tastes are similar but not identical, and we provide a good reality check for each other. The funniest thing that happens is when we both fall in love with the same piece and decide we can't possibly sell it. We actually take turns with it, each having "custody" of the piece for half the year. A little crazy but it works.

There are three things that we here at LemonCage love to do: discover vintage treasures, create unique art, and pass on special items of both kinds to happy customers.

We feel that when you purchase a stunning vintage item, you are not just buying a pretty object. You are acquiring a piece of history unlike any other and adding your own personal chapter to it!

For us, artwork and hand-crafted items are so much more than just decoration for your home. They also represent a unique connection between the artist and purchaser, and nothing makes us happier than when a cool customer takes a liking to something we have created from our imaginations!

We hope you find something you like at LemonCage, and thank you for stopping by!
