One man's trash . . .

Since I was tiny, I've always enjoyed vintage things. I can remember watching hours of "I Love Lucy" reruns into the wee hours of the night making it nearly impossible to wake up for elementary school. But the affinity for things seems to come with the genes, my mom and I have always been collectors . . . and well . . . I though it was finally time to help spread the love of things gone by.

Although still a newbie to Etsy, I've really enjoyed sharing treasures with other people through MODERNfiction. The items in my shop have all been hand picked by me by thinking of just a few things.
#1 . . . I love this item and would want it personally
#2 . . . Other people would love it and want it too
Those rules are the most important ones anyhow! I hope that you love MODERNfiction and the lovelies that line her shelves as much as I do.

Thanks for checking us out and please come back to see what's new!

    I can't seem to remember my age, but I've always had an attraction to vintage things. A little wear around the edges adds the best character to people and things. Being a graphic designer, photographer, glassblower and a treasure hunter keep me busy!

Welcome to MODERNfiction

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Buy with Apple Pay
  • Pay with Sofort
  • Pay with iDeal
  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
I accept PayPal and personal checks and would love to have payment within one to two days. As soon as I receive the payment, I will ship the item.

I do my very best to ship the same day as the purchase or the next day.

I am more than happy to combine shipping on items when possible. Please notify me before purchasing if you are interested in more than one item. Some items are already priced to combine shipping. Some are not eligible for combined shipping due to the size or fragility. It is easier for me to give you a more accurate ( and CHEAPER) quote on combined shipping if I know which items you are interested in.

I try to pack all items in good, clean boxes in nice packing material. I have a lot of experience shipping fragile items, so please purchase with confidence that your package will arrive safe.

Please notify me if you have any special requests or would like a tracking number.

I generally ship through the post office, which tends to be the cheapest option. Items often arrive in two to three days unless mail is running slow.

Refunds and Exchanges
You have 5 days to return the item from when you receive it. It must be in the same condition that it was when originally sent. Please contact me before returning an item.
I prefer no returns on international purchases.

Unfortunately, I do have to subtract the fees that Etsy and Paypal apply from the return purchase price. The buyer pays return shipping.

I can not refund items damaged in the mailing process. Please contact the USPS under those circumstances.
