The item was delivered and is in perfect condition. My only suggestion is on the package material. There was quite a bit of styrofoam which is very hard to recycle in our state. Bubble wrap or other material would be a better choice for disposal on such a large item.

About

Vintage got soul

I am curious as a cat, so I started my Etsy shop as an experiment. I wanted to play around with ideas, wanted to start something new, something of my own. I have this huge love, or rather say, addiction for good, ol’ stuff. And I wanted to know if this love was enough to make a living. An Etsy shop is just the perfect way to find out if your ideas are worth a cent, without investing a lot of money. Soon I discovered that there is one thing I like even more than cleaning out granny’s attic: the biz. I have always been searching for something creative to do - having a business is by far the most creative journey of all. One thing led to another; after having had a shop for 1.5 years, I quit my day job as an assistant at an NPO and gave it a shot.

When it comes to vintage, I like many things. Of course, I can’t resist those sleek design classics and immaculate high-quality pieces that are meant to last forever. But it must be vintage with a twist. Pieces that are quirky, a bit extraordinary, strange even and colorful, mostly catch my eye and I just have to drag them home. Sometimes, I take friends along for a hunt, and I find one of those weird pieces and hold it up with glee, and one of them just goes: „What the hell do you want with that?“. I just grin and as soon as they see it in the shop, they get it. I love those moments!

Still, it is important for me to choose only the very best for my shop. There is enough vintage in this world to pick the cherries. I do not like the idea of mass consumption, where everything must be cheap and fast and for one season only. I look for timeless pieces that are made to last. They survived the last decades and they will last much longer.

Having a business is a lot of fun but definitely an everyday challenge. My mom has been a big supporter from day 1. She used to drive around town and collect bubble wrap and boxes from furniture stores for me so I could pack my items without spending a lot of money. She’s the first one I call when there is exciting news about the business (and she also expects me to call every time I sell something). I also found a lot of support and true friendship in the Etsy Berlin Street Team. I can only recommend joining a team. You meet a lot of inspiring and funny people who just give you the last push when you need it.

What I really enjoy about having a shop is the communication. In my former life, I studied languages and trained as a translator and interpreter. Having an Etsy shop just gives me the perfect background to communicate with people all around the world in my favorite foreign language. It just makes my day if I can help someone to find something special. Talking about vintage is often a very nostalgic and emotional thing and you can connect over it instantly. I have heard so many good and heartwarming stories – I could write a book some day. That moment when you feel that a thing becomes connected with a person and turns into an emotion, a memory, is just the best.

I was very happy to be featured on Etsy as a collector: https://blog.etsy.com/en/2014/featured-collector-mighty-vintage/

Hello vintage lovers!

At Mighty Vintage you can feast on your vintage addiction!
I love everything old and well-made. Clothing, home decor, books, furniture, accessories, you name it.

If you have anything special in mind, don't hesitate to send me a convo!

Each item is unique and one-of-a-kind at least 20-years-old vintage. Thus it must be expected that items have normal wear for their age. Any larger flaws will naturally be noted.

Items are storaged in a non-smoker and pet free environment.

In order to prevent any problems with size, please follow the measurements carefully to ensure the best fit. For comparison you may measure a piece of your own wardrobe

I am required by law to provide the information below to my customers about my return policy. As the English and German texts are rather weighty with legal information, let me also sum up the main points here to avoid confusion:

DO YOU ACCEPT RETURNS?
Yes, returns are accepted. Please check the specific conditions in the section return policy.

Greetings from Berlin
