I'll be adding more Granny Chic items soon, I found the most gorgeous granny square afghans today and want to share them with you. What is Granny Chic?
Well basically you mix modern with older items such as: vintage afghans, pillows-the one's with pom-pom trim are my fav', items with big bold flowers such as paintings, doilies, embroidered items such as tea-towels, tins etc. As in what you love from the past is added to new. One thing that differentiates it from Shabby Chic is you do not 'do' anything to the items. Plus Shabby Chic is more 'soft' and romantic with lots of lace etc. Granny Chic style actually started with the fashion industry! Such as wearing something from your grandmother's era with today's style of dress. The 'style' began about 4 or 5 yrs ago and spread into home decor. Exciting times!

About

An Eclectic is genetic, not contagious.

I live east of Kansas City, Missouri but I was born and raised in the Ozarks (near Branson). I never knew there was a label for my mom's decorating 'style'. She would see something, love it and 'have to have' it and somehow the new love married with her other loves. Go figure, right?
I inherited (or caught) this Eclectic bug but I put my own twist to dear ol' mom's Eclectic bug. I create vignettes, small color splashes around the room.
My personal 'formula'.
For example: Consider a creamy cat planter cuddled up with floral plates of the same creamy hue as their base color. Now, add a 'bright' flask of say, perfume. The flask/bottle picks up a color from one of the floral plates. A chain reaction, unique, vital, alive, animated versus .....predictable, flat and stale.
When browsing my shop consider what you already have and add something with like-color vs limiting your imagination let's expand and take a dare!
Catch the Eclectic 'bug'.....lasso them into a vignette. #1. Create a focal point #2. Herd the different characters around the star of the show. #3. Don't forget the walls. Mirrors, wall-pockets and sconces are perfect go-to pieces for a 'base'.

Thank you for reading my story and have a great day!
Annette

Hello dear customer!
Thank you for stopping by and taking a few minutes to browse and hopefully get ideas and inspiration.

Every item is chosen by myself and if I don't love something, I walk on by. My goal is to find quality items but since they are all vintage, some will have age related wear. I will apprise you of significant 'flaws' : cracks and chips over one inch (very noticeable) and missing parts.

*** I consider 'fleas bites', smudges, crazing, patina (discoloration), as age related wear.

I love vintage ( items over 20 years old). My handpicked items range from the 50's to 90's.

I use Etsy's awesome NEW calculated shipping options, I ship within 1-3 days. If you choose Express Shipping, it will ship within 1 day.

Thank you so much for stopping by my shop!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
Payment
I qualify for express deposit of payment! Means: my shop has grown :)
Shipping
USPS Priority includes tracking number and insurance.
Insurance assures total refund if breakage in transit occurs. Take photos of item in, and outside, the packaging.

I suggest when shipping breakable items, less than 15 oz or less, to choose Priority Shipping which supplies insurance in case of breakage.

No insurance means: customer pays postage both ways if a refund on the item is desired. Rare occurrence!

I'm happy to combine postage (bundling) to save on shipping charges.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to send me a convo via Etsy or an email to annetteprince [!at] gmail.com

Refunds and Exchanges
Vintage and antique items are used and have imperfections which we feel only adds to their charm, and I do my very best to describe the items as accurately as possible. If your item is not as described, please contact me within 3 days of receipt. I will work with you to resolve the issue. Please note, return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. Thanks!
Refunds and Exchanges
Refund will be issued via PayPal

Convo me before you:

* purchase more than one item

* also, if after you receive an order and something is 'off' convo me before entering a less than 100% review so I can have a chance to make amends or clarify. Thank you :)
