Hello there... Welcome to the Market Tales Vintage Shop!

My shop features items I enjoy using and collecting, typically ceramics, vintage earthenware plates, pitchers, unique and functional pottery, garden items, as well as handcrafted and vintage baskets.

But sometimes, an object captures my attention that is unlike anything I've seen. Then I just HAVE to acquire it to list in the shop, with the thought that someone will also LOVE this item. My job then is to learn more about the item, have fun photographing and listing it in the shop, so it can be united with its new owner / collector.

Vintage items that stand the test of time and can be reused and loved by new generations save our precious resources, and minimizes our environmental footprint.

Vintage shops help us from being a "throw-away" society, and hopefully inspires all of us to re-use, re-purpose and recycle.

If you have any questions, please do send me an Etsy convo message or if you are not yet part of Etsy, email me at MyMarketTales [!at] --- or through the Twitter link on my shop page.

I appreciate your visit to my shop --- do come back again soon!

Visit my blog at for articles focused on items listed in this shop, and tips for new Etsy Vintage Shop owners, as I learn the ins and outs of selling on Etsy.

Kind regards,

Please note, I take photos from multiple angles of my vintage shop items, and they are are sold "as is". I will give as much accurate information as possible, through the descriptions and photos. Different monitors / screens / mobile devices may show the colors a little different from the actual product.

At this time, all sales are final. Unless I made an error in shipment, I do not offer returns or exchanges or store credit. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns (or to request additional photos) before you purchase your items.
Credit cards, debit cards are accepted through the payment portal. I also accept Etsy gift cards and Paypal.
At this time, I am shipping to the United States only --- but I will eventually add international shipping. Please do contact me for orders and shipping costs outside the U.S. and I can send you an estimate of the shipping costs.

In an effort to be kind to our planet and our resources, I reuse and recycle boxes, and use a minimal amount of packing material while packing your items as securely as possible. If you are giving your purchased item as a gift, please let me know and I will do my best to package it accordingly. I am happy to include a note and or gift wrap your item. In the event that your item is damaged through shipping, please photograph the items and let me know as soon as possible at MyMarketTales [!at]

Your items will ship within 3-5 business days after payment is received (and unless I am out of the area, I will typically ship in 1 to 2 days).

I mostly use US Post Office (USPS) Priority Mail, which will include delivery confirmation and insurance. For larger, bulkier items, I will use USPS Parcel Post, FedEx Ground (Home Delivery) or UPS -- United Parcel Service ground service.

Post Office Parcel Post, FedEx and UPS Ground can take a week or more for shipments to the East Coast. If time is an issue, please convo me and I will research the best and most economical way to ship your items.

Your orders are shipped from Central California. If you live in the West Coast, your items may ship for less, so do contact me and we can check if a reduced shipping cost is possible, before your purchase --- or if I can provide a better rate by combining items to ship to you. Sales tax is charged for addresses shipping only within California.

*** Please note the shipping prices are for the Continental USA only --- if you live in Alaska or Hawaii, or sending a gift to someone in Alaska or Hawaii, there will most likely be additional shipping costs. Please do contact me so I can adjust the shipping charge accordingly and reserve the item for you. ***

Thank you!
