Adorable. Thank you. Love her! : )
Vintage Items Are My Passion!
My shop is dedicated to the memory of my dearest relative and friend, Aunt Mae. Without her patience in teaching me about the world of antiques and collectibles "Minted Vintage" would never have happened.
I knew in my heart what my life's work was to be. I was hooked and still am...all these years later I'm still buying at auctions, estates, house sales, thrift shops or anywhere there may be something I will be able to offer you, my dear customers and friends, to turn into your own cherished treasure.
My aunt passed away in 2002 at age 86 and I miss her every day, but know that she would be so proud of all I've accomplished in my work over the years. I have a large amount of quaint antiques, artwork, vintage jewelry and curiosities I have collected and now want to sell. I hope you'll find something that catches your eye...that "must have" special item!
Each time one of you passes through my shop just to visit or make a purchase, it brings back memories of long ago and the love I have for this business. From the many travels my aunt, my mom and I have made over the years, I hope your eyes will sparkle when you spot that special bargain too!
My mother now has Alzheimer's and lives with me, so I am dealing with her care but still try to work daily at what I love to do best...buying and selling things from the past.
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile and for your patronage. I appreciate it more than words can say. And one last thing. Please know that every piece selected to be in my shop has been placed here with much thought, love and lots of care...all just for you.
I am the owner of Minted Vintage and have been selling jewelry, antiques, collectibles & more since I was 15 years old. I am also Wisconsin Registered Auctioneer #2256-052. Am always on the lookout for oldies but goodies ~ all just for you!
We believe in honestly describing our items so that there aren't any surprises when it arrives to you. We want you to be pleased with your purchase! We work hard to make sure that happens on every sale.
We offer FREE INSURANCE for all orders valued at $25.00 and up through our Inkfrog.com account. See below for more information in the Shipping Policy area.
So please head on in and have a look around!! Your treasure hunt awaits you and we appreciate you stopping by!
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
We accept Visa, Mastercard and Discover credit cards. Call Linda at 262-598-8477 with your card information. We will need the billing address for the credit card and the 3 digit security code on reverse for processing. We also accept Paypal but ship to confirmed Paypal addresses only.
Occasionally we have a request to place an item on RESERVE with payment to follow in a set time. We have no problem with that but do request a $5 down deposit (non-refundable if you do not follow through on your purchase) and an approved set date for your final payment to arrive. The $5 will be applied towards your purchase price of course and you will only owe the remaining balance. Please email us concerning any RESERVE requests before making a purchase.
We also will consider lay-a-way on higher priced items of $100 and more. The payments would be 1/3 down to hold it and 1/3 and then the last 1/3. The longest we allow payments to linger is 3 months total. You can make payments sooner however and is always welcomed. Once your item is paid in full we will ship. If you do not make the rest of your payments after the initial first or second, funds are NOT refundable and you forfeit your item which will be returned to the shop. THERE ARE NO RETURNS UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES ON LAY-A-WAY PURCHASES.
~ FREE INSURANCE ADDED TO ALL ORDERS $25 AND UP ~
We feel it is very important to have a package insured when shipping. To show our thanks for you choosing us to shop with and your order reaches $25 or higher, we will pay the insurance cost no matter how large your order is through our Inkfrog.com account ! We add Delivery Confirmation at no charge to ALL orders regardless of price. Orders under $25 are not insured. If you wish insurance on a smaller order please Convo me and I will send you an adjusted invoice BEFORE you make your payment. Please note that we are not responsible for any shipment valued at $25 or under once it leaves our possession and you choose not to insure.
We use USA First Class Mail for orders weighing 13 ounces or less. We have found it to be just as fast as Priority Mail. If you wish Priority Mail however, please Convo me and I will send you an adjusted invoice. Do NOT make payment if you want a Priority shipment as the amount quoted in our listings is for First Class unless noted. We will use Paypal to invoice you a bill.
ABOUT INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: We are quoting shipping prices to USA ONLY in our listings. If you are an international buyer and see something you really want to purchase, please Convo me here through Etsy and we will try to work out the shipping cost and insurance for you. Sorry, the free insurance offer is for USA shipments only. We place the actual value of your items on the customs form, so please do not ask us to do otherwise.
We will not ship outside the USA if your order cannot be insured and will not be held responsible if the package doesn't arrive. Inkfrog.com will allow us to insure your package to certain countries if it stays within the 13 ounce or less weight and ships 1st Class International. We will advise if you qualify. Again, email us if interested in an item or items. Most of these items are going to weight at least a pound or more.
BULKY USA SHIPPING INFO: We normally ship Priority mail at noted price in each listing. We also use Fed-Ex, Parcel Post, UPS or whatever is noted in the listing itself or at our discretion. Fed-Ex orders all require a phone number which we will ask you to provide.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you do happen to have a problem with something please get in touch with us prior to leaving a negative feedback. We will try to work it out but this MUST be done within 24 hours of receiving your package. After the 24 hours has passed no returns will be accepted and shipping costs are not refundable under any circumstances ~ when sent to you or if you return to us.
If you do not receive your item or it's damaged please get in touch with us right away so we can look into a claim. This is ONLY for items we insured at $25 and up. We are not responsible for any shipments valued under $25 you choose not to insure. We are not held responsible for any international shipments, unless insurance is purchased and is allowed to your country through Inkfrog.com.
Additional policies and FAQs
IMPORTANT: Your items are stored in a smoke-free, climate controlled environment. Please note that sometimes we purchase items from estates sales and if there is a smokey odor I will most definitely note it in my description.
