About

My Summer Vacation...or How I Opened my Etsy Store.

Work hard at what you love, do it with kindness, integrity, to the best of your ability and your efforts will be rewarded. AND you will enjoy your work. That's how I feel about my Etsy store. I work hard and turned my passion into a fulfilling business. Seemingly frivolous on the outside, but for me, it was a much needed distraction. Play and purpose during a difficult time. I was a new stay at home mom. I'd spent my adult life chasing disasters, working for the American Red Cross. Following tornadoes and hurricanes all over this interesting country of ours. I had a difficult time transitioning from a high stress, adrenaline pumping job to my new roll as a stay at home mommy, at middle age, no less. I loved being at home with my baby. A joyful bundle of love and giggles. But frankly, I was suffering a bit with post partum baby blues. I started my store on a whim. Friends had said I have a good eye. They'd say "what a cool piece. Where did it come from?" My response was always the same, "a tag sale, or a Church bizarre"

My mom and dad have always been thrifters. My dad, oddball treasures like rocks, strange dolls, taxidermy, and artifacts. My mom, on the other hand, would buy yards of Laura Ashley fabric, salt cellars, or pretty canisters to hold coffee beans or sugar. Everything in our house was de-canted. De-canted? That is to say, no ordinary bags of sugar or plastic bottles of dish soap. Oh heavens no. We had pretty little containers for everything. A salt cellar hung on the wall. Butter was kept in a vintage stoneware crock on the counter top. Even dish soap was in an elegant etched glass bottle. Our home was filled with second hand painted furniture and re-upholstered pieces. My mom and I recovered the same sofa 4 times in ten years. When I moved into my first apartment, that same sofa went with me. With yards of white duck fabric, we recovered it again and splatter painted it in hot 1980's neon colors. Turquoise, hot pink, black and yellow. I was sooo cool, at 18, with a stylish apartment. Ahem, it was the 80s!

Essentially, I've always thrifted and repurposed. My hobby is now a small cottage business. I'm still a stay at home mom, to a tiny joyful sprite. Etsy is my outlet to connect with others with similar taste.

Etsy allows me to provide an exceptional level of customers service. I strive to exceed my customers expectations. It's my pleasure, actually.
Sit a spell, won't you and have a look around?

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept Paypal and Direct Checkout. Or you can contact me for other possible arrangements.

I am happy to hold an item for you for up to 3 days. Just shoot me a convo. After three days if you haven't purchased your item I will take it off of reserve. Layaway is sometimes available on higher end items. Contact me to discuss.
Shipping
Delivery confirmation is available on US orders if requested; it is not available on international shipments. Insurance is included on all items shipped Priority Mail up to 100.00, but if an item arrives broken or is lost by the US Postal Service the insurance claim must be filed by the customer. Insurance on items which are valued at more than 100.00 is always available at the request and cost of the buyer. I prefer to ship USPS Priority Mail but if you have another preference and I can make it work I am happy to oblige. Heavy or bulky items usually ship via Fed Ex Ground. I try to ship items within (3) business days, most times sooner. Occasionally it may take longer but I will let you know if there is a hold up. International items shipped by First Class International are not trackable and do not include insurance. Priority Mail Insurance International can include insurance for an additional fee but please note that all insurance claims for international shipping must be filed by the buyer according to the US Postal Service. I am happy to ship international, please convo me for pricing and more info. I do not charge any handling fees for shipping and local pick-up for free is available whenever possible. I live in the SF Bay Area.
Refunds and Exchanges
•Refunds and Exchanges

All items listed are described, photographed, and authenticated to the best of my knowledge, ability and resources. Flaws in vintage goods will be noted - but, remember, by nature these are VINTAGE items and have probably had a bump or bruise here and there. I do occasionally miss flaws but will never intentionally mis-represent an item. If you feel the item has a flaw that I did not point out, please let me know.

Please contact me within three days of receipt if you are unhappy with your purchase. We will resolve the issue in a mutually acceptable way. Returns must reach me in the original condition they were sent out in order to receive a refund as returns/refunds will not be given on damaged items. All shipping charges are the responsibility of the buyer.
