About

Scouring Michigan for Unique Vintage and Antiques

I love the search involved in finding bargains and unique items. I search thrift stores and estate sales. I am not one to spend much time at garage sales, but I will stop occasionally.
Even though I was quite the tomboy as a child, I have come to love vintage and antique jewelry. No matter what the item, I have a lot of respect for the quality of the older pieces. Porcelain, glass, prints, all grab my attention. I am always amazed to find something really old, especially items from the 19th century, that are still intact.

The hardest part about this business is seeing your own toys in an antique/vintage store. I am at the end of the Baby Boomers group but I am always amazed to see my old play things on a shelf. Partly because it reminds me of my age and partly because I wish I had saved some of those now highly valued toys!

Besides selling on etsy, I sell at an antique mall in Livonia, Michigan called The Town Peddler.

    I love the hunt for unique vintage and antique items. I have fibromyalgia and a host of other chronic conditions but shopping and selling keep me moving. They are my simple distractions. I live in Michigan.

Welcome to Simple Distractions. Be sure to check back often as I add newly found treasures regularly.


Please check my shipping policies for shipping outside the US.

Payment
I accept Paypal payments within 3 days of purchase. I accept credit cards also but PLEASE contact me first. I am charged for you credit purchase and I may need to adjust your invoice to include those extra charges. I generally get things shipped next day, however, I promise to get them out within 3 days. If you need to change or cancel your order, please do so within 24 hours.
Shipping
I ship using USPS unless requested otherwise. Shipping is expensive and when possible, I will refund differences greater than $2.00. When shipping outside the US, I have to estimate shipping and I generally OVER estimate shipping costs. When that happens, I will refund the difference same as already mentioned. If shipping is more than estimated, I will contact the buyer to let them know if they want to pay the difference or cancel the order.

I do my best to get shipments out the next business day. That is my goal; but I will get them out within 3 days of payment or shipping will be reduced to half the cost. ;)
Refunds and Exchanges
Refunds are given when the product is returned. I do not allow refunds unless the product is defective in some way. Buyers remorse is an not an eligible reason for returning an item. Return shipping will be paid by the buyer unless I made an error in shipping the product. b I have a good track record of appropriately packaging my items.
Additional policies and FAQs
I do my best to pack well as most of these items are fragile. It is recommended that you request insurance for items that are breakable. I have had a couple of items arrive damaged and the USPS promptly repaid me for the damaged goods.

If you live in Southeast Michigan and want to arrange pick up to save on shipping costs, please contact me so we can work something out.
