About

We specialize in quality vintage and antiques from hand painted porcelains to jewelry and home decor

I originally started my vintage shop because I inherited so much "stuff" from my MIL that I felt I needed to sell some of it. I already had a mosaic shop here on Etsy where I sell home décor https://www.etsy.com/shop/memoriesinmosaics so I knew this was the right place for our new store. We started with some costume jewelry pieces and a few hand painted dishes. I enjoyed it so much that my husband and I started going out to estate sales, auctions and antique shops to buy more things to sell. My favorite pieces in my shop are the hand painted porcelains, however, we carry anything from a sterling silver Victorian brooch to handmade African Elephants carved from wood.

My husband and I try to acquire quality pieces for our shop and often travel to various states to seek out just the right items. It's fun and gives us something to do together so it can't get any better than this!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
We accept Paypal and Etsy Cards. Payment is to be made at time of purchase. I will be happy to set up a Layaway plan. Contact me and we can set up a payment plan that will work for you.

I DO NOT accept money orders or personal checks.
Shipping
We DO NOT SHIP EXPRESS MAIL for items totaling more than $100. All orders are shipped within 2-3 business days of purchase unless it is a larger item that may require additional packing. SHIPPING is determined from furthest point of my home. I will refund overpayment to your account.

We use USPS Priority Mail and UPS for most of our shipping. I prefer to send breakables Priority Mail rather than Standard to insure a safer arrival. We include insurance for items over $100, but will do so for anything upon request and payment for those services in advance. Each piece is carefully wrapped to insure the safest arrival possible. Many of the more delicate porcelains are wrapped in tissue and bubble wrap and are cushioned with packing peanuts and air bags.

Postal rates are up again for this year from 8.6% on 8oz and under to a 9.8% increase on all Priority Mail. The hardest hit is the International 1st Class rates at 21.6% more this year.
Refunds and Exchanges
We allow returns for CREDIT IN OUR SHOP if you are not satisfied with your purchase and we ask that you contact us a soon as possible. You will have 7 days from the date you receive your item in which to return it. The buyer will pay for the shipping and insurance (pieces worth $100 or more). Once we receive the item in the same condition we originally sent it we will refund you the full purchase price in a store Credit excluding the original shipping. We want you to be happy with your purchase and try to show good photos and have honest descriptions with each listing. Please feel free to ask any questions.

*** I cannot be held responsible for items sent INTERNATIONALLY. Once it leaves the U.S port there is no way to track the package. I can provide you with a tracking number but it will only show the stops in the United States PORTS.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you have any questions about any of our pieces, please feel free to convo us.
Condition is in the eye of the beholder. We do all that we can to describe each piece and include photos of any flaws, however, one person's idea of wear may not be anothers. Excellent=no flaws but some wear from age, Very Good=possible slight flaws and more wear, Good=flaws or minor damage.
