From old to new to old again

I grew up in a very small town in upstate New York. My family has been in that area for nearly 300 years. There's lots of old stuff! Old houses, old barns, and old everything in them. Because vintage and antique was the norm, new stuff was a real novelty and highly valued when I was a child.

But after I grew up, I moved away - and then I kept moving. I have moved about forty times. New got really old. I think all that moving really cemented my love for the vintage treasures I remembered from my childhood. More and more, I wanted to create a home with a sense of history, with connection to my past and my heritage. I have my grandfather's diaries, furniture made by my father-in-law, Spanish textbooks written a hundred years ago by a great-great uncle I never knew, my mother's sewing notions. I guess it's no surprise that I have a deep interest in genealogy.

My love affair with vintage housewares has grown until my own home cannot absorb all the things I find. When I go looking for vintage goods, I have a feeling of rescuing them. I want them to go to loving homes, to be used, preserved, appreciated. Maybe one of these treasures will make its home with you. ;-)

Thanks for dropping by MyKitchenCupboard. I just love vintage items, especially the things that remind me of my childhood. I hope you found something to make you smile with a warm memory of your mother’s or grandmother’s kitchen.

Please visit my facebook page, where I like to post things about the history of the items in my shop:

I use my Pinterest page to announce new items in the shop:

If you have an interest in sewing, please visit my other shop, MySewingChest, where I offer vintage patterns and sewing notions:

I accept payment with credit cards, Etsy gift cards, and PayPal. If you are unsure if PayPal is the best option for you, Etsy has a helpful article here:
I ship items within 1-3 days of receiving the order. I ship to addresses in the United States.

About your address:

If you are paying through Paypal, then it is best if your address on matches your address on PayPal. If you have two different addresses, please indicate to me which address you would like me to use for shipping.


Many of the items I sell are breakable, so packaging them to prevent breakage during shipping is my first concern. I use USPS Priority Mail boxes whenever possible, or I re-use cardboard boxes, so you may see logos, tape, etc. from companies you recognize. Please recycle boxes and packing materials as appropriate.

Some items will be wrapped in bubble wrap, boxed, then placed in a larger box with more packing material. I have found this is the best way to keep the item safe. I feel comfortable packing some smaller breakable items in multiple layers of bubble wrap and a single box. I pack less fragile items in boxes or padded envelopes. Again, my goal is to get the item to you in the best condition possible.

Combined Shipping

I will gladly combine items in one shipment to save shipping costs whenever possible. Because of the wide range of sizes, shapes, and weights of the items I offer in MyKitchenCupboard, I prefer to give a shipping quote on your specific order. If you plan to order two or more items, please convo me so I can give you a shipping quote.


I use the United States Post Office (USPS). I use Priority Mail for most items because it gets the item there quickly, and the service includes tracking and insurance.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to be fully satisfied with your order, and so I am careful to describe and photograph any faults I can find in a piece. If you have any questions about the condition of a piece, please convo me BEFORE placing your order.

* If an item is damaged during shipment, in order to facilitate an insurance claim I require photos of the damage before a refund can be given. Claims of damage, as well as photos of same, must be received by me within 7 days of the receipt of the item by the buyer.
* If you wish to return an item or items because you have changed your mind about them for some reason, I will take the items back and refund your initial purchase price only, not the outgoing shipping.
* Refunds are given only as long as item is received in the same condition as when I shipped it to you. Items that are returned in a condition other than that in which they were sent out are not eligible for refunds.
* Return shipping fees are the responsibility of the buyer, and all returns should be sent with a tracking number of some sort (such as delivery confirmation or insurance.)
* Customers who return items without a tracking number do so at their own risk; items that are lost or damaged during return shipping are solely the buyer's responsibility.
Additional policies and FAQs
Condition of Vintage Items

Vintage items are, by definition, used items. Please know that you can expect to see signs of wear and age. I do my best to spot defects such as chips, cracks, stains, and tears and to show these issues in the photos of each item. I also describe the condition as clearly and honestly as I can. I never want you to be unpleasantly surprised when you receive a package from MyKitchenCupboard.

If you have any questions at all about the condition of an item, please convo me BEFORE buying the item. I can reserve the item for you for a short period while we are discussing it so you won’t lose the item if you decide to buy it. In addition, I may be able to send additional photos of any area you are particularly concerned about.
