This is an understated but pretty scarf, and goes with just about everything! I will use this one often!

Modern Domestic

The way I run my shop is not much different than the way I practice design. I take a user-centered approach. I specialize in domestic housewares. My husband and I both grew up in the sixties and seventies and we are both very nostalgic for items we remember around the house and from our childhood and that has certainly influenced my curatorial style; something you might see right out of a 1950s House Beautiful magazine. My children really get a kick out of seeing something in our house or in the shop that might also be featured in an old home magazine! I am interested in curating a shop that taps into the user’s emotion, an emotion that I know I feel when I come across nostalgic finds. A recent client told me that she has been searching for bedspread “like the one she had when she was a 20-something”…she had never been to Etsy but her broad search led her to my shop. She started emphatically communicating with me, thinking that just maybe, she had found it and sure enough, it was the one. A large percentage of my customers have stories like this and nothing makes me happier than to have this very real, very emotional connection. It really is a different approach and flips the focus from the designer to the user. Therefore, many of my customers are not collectors but purchase nostalgic items for everyday use.

ModDom specializes in and sources mid century modern domestic, retro and vintage items for the home. Some items are commonplace and we stock them for nostalgia! Other items are unusual, possibly quirky, sublime, sophisticated and one-off: don't miss these mid-century rarities. On some occasions we will feature the handmade: could be a folk-art piece or a re-purposed vacuum. Stop by often and see for your own eyes.

If you have any comments, questions, feedback or suggestions I’d love to hear from you.

Warmest Regard,

► NEW TO ETSY? Here's a helpful guide to making your first purchase:

I accept all purchases by credit card, debit card or bank account via Etsy Direct Checkout OR PayPal. You don't need to setup a PayPal account to checkout; you'll just need an email address and a password.

Please pay for your order within three working days. If three working days have passed without communication or payment from the buyer, the transaction will be reported to Etsy to allow for the reimbursement of fees and the item will be Returned.

RESERVES I am more than happy to reserve an item for you when you need more time to consider your options. There are no fees for reservations. I do appreciate a convo if you change your mind abbot a purchase and cannot hold an item for more than 7 days unless we've chatted and have prearranged our agreement.

► ETSY'S DOs and DON'Ts (

• When you purchase an item on Etsy, you agree to pay the seller for the item. Do not purchase items for which you do not intend to pay.
• The buyer must send payment directly to the seller (not to Etsy).
• It is the buyer's responsibility to pay the seller. If you choose to pay via PayPal, please send payment right away.
► SHIPPING METHODS: Items are shipped primarily USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate Small, Medium or Large boxes depending on the size of the item and USPS Media Mail and Parcel Post when appropriate. Expedited shipping is available upon request; please convo for a quote to your area.

Furniture, and other heavy items are available for local pickup or pre-arranged delivery only. We can deliver items to destinations within a 120 mile radius of Columbus, Ohio 43224. Please contact me for a quote.

I charge as close as I can to actual shipping cost. If I am off by more than $2.00, don't worry, I will notify you and refund the difference back to you in the form of your original payment.

► INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: Please convo for a quote to your area. I adore shipping items all over the world! I mark customs forms "merchandise" and the buyer is responsible for import fees and taxes. I am sorry, rules prohibit me from gifting items.

I usually ship international items via First Class International to SAVE you money. These packages do not have a tracking number other than the customs declaration and may not be easily tracked after leaving the USA.

I am NOT responsible for international packages that have proof of shipment and have left my possession and are uninsured by you (you haven't expressively requested nor paid for insurance) and then lost, damaged or stolen during transit. If items are returned to me by the shipping service due to address or delivery errors, I will ask that the transaction be cancelled for a full refund to you so that neither of us will be out money. Re-shipping items negates the original shipping cost and usually requires a repayment of shipping for address corrections. Please also note that items take anywhere from 7 days to 3 months for international delivery. Refunds are only offered when items are back in my possession.

► INSURANCE: Insurance is NOT included. I recommend that buyers of fragile items add it, but it is optional. I am diligent in protecting your purchases for shipment; however, if damage occurs during shipping, USPS insurance ensures your refund.

► PURCHASING MULTIPLE ITEMS? I am happy to combine shipping costs, please just convo me for an adjusted rate!

► WHEN WILL YOU GET IT? I usually ship items within 5 days of the transaction and depending on the service and where your item is headed, delivery occurs within 3-7 days after shipping! After an item has shipped, if you paid by PayPal, you should receive a confirmation from Paypal. If you paid by another method, you can check back online within the order to see its shipping date. A tracking number is only a available for priority or insured packages. For holidays or birthdays, please shoot me a heads up and I will prioritize your shipment - I don't want to miss your important deadline!

Refunds and Exchanges
Items are predominantly pre-owned, vintage and retro and are purchased as-is; there are no refunds or exchanges. I make every effort to carefully describe and illustrate any damage to vintage items, as they are rarely in perfect condition. If you have any reservations about an item, feel free to ask questions or request additional pictures before purchasing.

If your item is damaged prior to or after shipping due to errors in handling, shipping or delivery, I will happily refund your purchase. If the item is in your possession when this occurs, I will ask that you photograph or return the item for accounting purposes.
