About

Come for tea and shop for treasure!

The Living Room Market is an online-only venue now! Having been based in a brick-and-mortar shop for 9 years, I am hoping to release a goodly flow of fun secondhand treasures to this online venue! So check back frequently! I want to be one of your favorite online connections for treasure-hunting, nest-building, gift-giving, and day-dreaming. (In addition to a fondness for fun and first-rate secondhand, I find delight in providing quality organic tea to fellow tea lovers.) www.thelivingroom.market.

Through The Living Room Market, my goal is to go with Christ into the marketplace, learn what He wants me to learn, do the work He’s planned for me to do, and be part of His life-changing love -- for me and for all around me.

My inventory target is quality, secondhand home decor, housewares, collectibles and gifts, as well as art and crafts by local artists. I also carry fine tea, along with a boutique selection of herbs and aromatherapy products.

Things:
Some things are necessary and some things are useful and some things are just nice to have around, but all things are mostly an excuse to interact with people and build relationships. Sometimes I forget this, and if you think I have, kindly remind me.

Tea:
I included tea in my business plan because of The Golden Rule: I enjoy a good cup of tea made with just a little bit of care (no, don’t bring me a pot of hot water with a teabag on the side!!), so I would like to make that available to my shoppers, as well.

Money:
I need to be practical and pay the rent and honor utility providers, etc., so that’s where the buying and selling comes in. God puts limits on us to teach us all sorts of stuff…about reality, about humility, about what’s really important.

People:
I'm grateful to all the people who make this business possible, blessing me in so many ways. I'm grateful to God who makes it all possible and worthwhile through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Fun:
Not all days are fun, but there’s joy in every day. Sometimes, joy is a difficult choice to be thankful for blessings that are yet unseen. Other times, joy swoops you up and carries you along. This business has been an adventure, even though it’s been a lot of hard work and lots of lessons. Again, it’s the people that make it worthwhile.

Prayer:
Our foundation. The reason we’re here. If we can pray with you, or for you, please let us know.

Returns and exchange details
Except for tea and newly crafted items, The Living Room Market offers secondhand items, as is, with all their built-in, banged-up history. We do not offer refunds unless the item you receive is significantly not as we described.

If you have concerns or questions, please contact us.
Payment
SHIPPING IS AN ESTIMATE to be adjusted once the destination is known. If the Shipping Tab actually says FREE, please realize that is an Etsy setting we can't adjust. Please read shipping polices below.

We accept payment through the Etsy system, whether or not you are picking up your purchase in person. That way, there is a proper record of the transaction for your protection, and Etsy receives their fee.

Purchases shipped to a Washington State address are subject to current Washington State sales tax.

If you are having your purchase picked up by a freight agent, please arrange pick up within 1 week. Otherwise, we will need payment for storage fees ($5/day) since our space is limited.
Shipping
Small items that will easily ship via Fedex Ground or USPS should be on their way within 1-5 business days. Our shipping costs cover the actual postage + packing + insurance + signature delivery. Please send us your phone number so Fedex can call you if there's no one to sign when they come.

For medium-large items that we can pack and ship by Fedex Ground, expect up to 5 business days for them to be on their way. Once we have your zip code, we can get a better idea of the cost and may need to adjust it up or down; if up, you will have the option to cancel your order; if down, we will refund your payment account if the difference is at least $2.

For larger pieces that we can't pack and ship, your options are:
1) local pickup (bring your own packing supplies and muscle)
2) hire local delivery (we can make recommendations for you to hire)
3) hire an agent to both pack and ship anywhere via Less-Than-Truckload freight. You can get quotes from Vintage Transport, Hansen Brothers or Box Brothers, or others. We will gladly cooperate with the agent you hire.

We will store your purchase for 1 week without charge while you arrange for local pickup, local delivery, or long-distance packing and shipping. After 1 week, you will need to cover a storage fee of $5/day.
Additional policies and FAQs
DAMAGED GOODS:

If your purchase arrives with damage, please take photos of the packaging and the item, and save all the packing for the shipper to verify what happened. It is MUCH BETTER if we contact the shipper directly once we have your photographs and description of the damage.
Privacy
This shop does not share any of your information with anyone. Etsy's privacy policy may differ, and always supercedes.
