Love this ring! Great price. Looks nice, but because it's adjustable and costume jewelry quality, where the adjustable part meets it's sharp and hurts my finger. I want to try to find a way to wrap it with something so I can still wear it. Thank you!

Beautiful hankies! Exactly as described. Liz was easy to communicate with and addressed my needs and questions promptly. Fast shipping and lovingly packaged. I would definitely shop with MissingHeirloom in the future! Thank you, Liz! LLWILS

Heavenly angel tree topper now permanently resides in her original box. This platinum blonde beauty is nestled in tinsel. The box itself is its own work of art in blue and gold.

About

Vintage Awesomeness for your Nest

I 'cool hunt' where ever I go. I am always on the lookout for the 'wonderful', the 'wow', and the 'oh my gosh you're joking!'.
I hunt for the sublime and equally as much for the ridiculous. Because we are never just one or the other - sometimes; but not all the time.
I am the last of the baby boomers - just old enough, that I missed out on computers being part of every day life (until now). My work was done at a drafting table - my favorite materials - ink on linen. Nothing can replace that drawing experience.
I bought and sold vintage while I was in grad school - it paid my tuition until I was picked up as an Research Assistant.
I wanted to be a work from home mom so I added a hand crafted goods component to my already existing design and preservation business. Of course the vintage wasn't far behind.
I wish I had started selling online and had found Etsy sooner (handmade shop bittersweetdesign est. 2008).
But I am here now and loving every sale that goes to a happy home, be it the far reaches of the world - or in my own backyard!

    A 'box lot' at an auction was enough to keep my brother and I occupied and happy. It still works that way for me! I rescue animals, odd lots, dishware, plants, houses. Most times I find there is a use for everything :)

Shop policies

This is an Etsy Seal of Approval Vintage Shop - Everything labeled vintage in this shop is 20 years or older.

Some definitions to help you in your purchase:
(MINT) - As close to "new" as possible for its age. No problems.
(EXCELLENT) - Normal wear expected for age. Any problems are not easily visible.
(GOOD) - Normal wear expected for age. Shows very minimal wear
(USED) - An item that was used everyday. Not abused.... but used, shows more noticeable wear and love.

I have had my earth bound shop for 19 years and many of my customers have become good friends. I have a varied and unique collection of items in my shop, from handmade to vintage and antique.

Also - keep in mind I do have a brick and mortar shop - there will be times when items will disappear from my Etsy shelves and not appear in the sold area - this is because I have had to make them inactive, or deleted them - (if they were one of a kind) because they have sold out of my shop. Please convo me if there was something that you saw and couldn't live without!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards

Payment
Payment is expected immediately upon checkout, if this is not done, the item will be relisted and the current sale cancelled. I accept all forms of payment - however, items will be held until payment clears. Please convo me if you plan on paying by anything other than paypal or a credit card through paypal.

If you reside in the state of Virginia I have to include 6% sales tax.

I am happy to reserve a listing for you and/or take a deposit on an item for 'layaway'. Reserving a listing will typically require a non-refundable deposit - of which I can send you a bill for you to pay through paypal.
Shipping
Upon cleared payment your item(s) will be shipped immediately - unless I convo you and tell you otherwise. For custom orders, I will also let you know when to expect shipment.

The majority of my vintage items, as well as some of my handmade items are shipped by priority mail with delivery confirmation and/or insurance. Some may go via parcel post due to weight. If you have specific questions regarding shipping costs on an item - please convo me!

International Customers - Please do not ask me to mark your packages with other than what they are - item-wise or price-wise. I do not intend to do anything illegal regarding shipping overseas. Also - I am more than happy to ship anything anywhere - If you see something in my shop - I will be more than happy to get a shipping estimate on that item for you.

DEC 18 - DEC 21 --- > Regular shipping - or if you need it, expedited shipping. Let me know.
DEC22 - DEC 23 - expedited shipping only! Please contact me and we will make arrangements.

Please know that I will refund any egredgious excesses in shipping costs.
Refunds and Exchanges
I have been in business since 1990 - doing hundreds of juried shows, craft fairs, vetted antique shows, and flea markets. I opened my brick and mortar shop 20 years ago - and I have never had an item returned. I strive to describe everything as thoroughly as possible, and to represent it as honestly as possible

Please know that communication is key.
I am confident that the items I sell are what they are represented to be. Therefore I encourage questions & concerns PRIOR to the purchase so there is no buyer's remorse.
Returns will negotiated on a case by case basis. At most returns will be accepted for store credit only.

Thank you for taking the time to read my Shop Policies.
