Please note: Delivery may be delayed because of the pandemic, especially international orders.
My shop is full of VINTAGE items, not NEW. PLEASE READ THE FULL DESCRIPTION AND LOOK AT ALL THE PICTURES for a complete overview of the item you are considering. Also please read my shop policies which are included with each listing.

Most items are one of a kind finds, some are like new. You will see imperfections that are from age and use. I try to describe all flaws but occasionally miss some. I believe these flaws only add more character and vintage appeal to an item. I offer layaway (see Policies) and will consider all reasonable offers.

With all that is going on in the world with Covid-19 shipping can be delayed, especially international shipping.


PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE check that your shipping address is correct when ordering. There have been a number of old addresses left on accounts. This only delays the already slower shipping and causes your package to be bounced around from post office to post office.

My treasures include vintage collectibles, jewelry boxes, garden décor, enamelware, glassware, kitchen items, serving items, rustic country, sewing supplies, dolls, jewelry, books, home decor, farmhouse cottage, primitive, country decor, Victorian....see my About page for more!

WHY I DON'T OFFER FREE SHIPPING ON ALL MY ITEMS:

As a vintage seller most of my items are too heavy to ship for free. To add the shipping cost to an item adds too much to the price, and, if you live in NY, as I do, it creates a bigger problem. If I were to add the shipping to the price of every item, I have to add what it would cost to ship to California. I do not know who is going to buy an item so I have to add the highest shipping. Someone in the Northeast, for example, then ends up paying CA shipping prices, all under the guise of "free shipping".
You will see that I have free shipping on jewelry and a few other small items. At this time, that is all I can do to keep offering great vintage items at competitive prices to everyone nationally and internationally who wants to buy them.

******When buying multiple items please send me a message for a combined shipping quote BEFORE PURCHASING!

DAMAGED ITEM REFUNDS

*****As of July 2020, I have had to change my policy on refunds for damaged items. Because of a few, this will affect many. I apologize for that.

In the past I have issued a refund to the buyer right away for a damaged item and then submitted the insurance claim. The postal service has become more strict on their claims and many times require the damaged item be brought to the post office for inspection. Since I do not have the item any longer it is up to the buyer to do that. I found that once the buyer receives the refund from me there is not much incentive to make the trip to the post office. They already got their refund, which leaves no option for me to get mine from the insurance claim.


Therefore, the buyer now has the option to submit an insurance claim directly to the post office and wait for the refund from them OR I can do it and we both wait for the refund to come to me and then I will refund the buyer. If the post office requires to see the item, the buyer will have to follow through on that to keep the claim in process.

If you opt to do it yourself, you can go online at www.usps.com and submit a claim. You will need your tracking number (found on the receipt), the receipt for value of purchase and at least two pictures of the damage.****

A Life-long Passion for Thrifting Makes Me an Etsy Entreprenuer

I have picked and thrifted all my life to fill my 1900's farmhouse and to surround myself with the cozy atmosphere that old vintage items give. I live in an 1870 Victorian home now and I have filled it with all of my treasures from over 30 years of collecting.

In an effort to downsize I decided to open a shop on Etsy to sell some of my things. I found it so hard to let go of them that I ended up deactivating listings after things were selling! The only thing to do was to start picking and thrifting again to buy things specifically to sell in my shop. I love all kinds of vintage from farmhouse, cottage, shabby chic, retro, and Victorian. You will find it all here.

The name NaNa's Things comes from my experience of having some of my grandmother's things and NaNa is the name that my two granddaughters and grandson call me. It is pronounced Naah Naah.

My house is my shop and every room has something Etsy in it! I am working on containing it all in one area. I photograph a lot of my items as extra pictures in the listings in different parts of my home. The photos you see above are of the different rooms that help enhance my items.


I am a vintage junkie and have been for many years! NaNa's Things is a collection of items I have collected over the past 25+ years, along with some vintage items I find on my many picking sprees. Some items I am selling as is, others I have recycled, repurposed and made into something new.

I am not an expert in vintage items but have been collecting for 30 years so I choose, date and describe items to the best of my ability, research and knowledge. If I am offering a counterfeit item, please let me know as I will really appreciate it! You can expect some flaws in the items due to age and wear.

If you buy something from my shop and LOVE it when you get it home, please leave me feedback...it is so encouraging to us Etsy shop owners! Just go to Your Account at the top of the page, click on Purchases and Reviews in the drop down menu and the item will be there. Thank you in advance!

DAMAGED ITEM REFUNDS

*****As of July 2020, I have had to change my policy on refunds for damaged items. Because of a few, this will affect many. I apologize for that.

In the past I have issued a refund to the buyer right away for a damaged item and then submitted the insurance claim. The postal service has become more strict on their claims and many times require the damaged item be brought to the post office for inspection. Since I do not have the item any longer it is up to the buyer to do that. I found that once the buyer receives the refund from me there is not much incentive to make the trip to the post office. They got their refund, but I do not.


Therefore, the buyer now has the option to submit an insurance claim directly to the post office and wait for the refund from them OR I can do it and we both wait for the refund to come to me and then I will refund the buyer. If the post office requires to see the item, the buyer will have to follow through on that to keep the claim in process.

If you opt to do it yourself, you can go online at www.usps.com and submit a claim. You will need your tracking number (found on the receipt), the receipt for value of purchase and at least two pictures of the damage.*****




ATTENTION INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: I apologize that I can no longer ship fragile items 4 pounds and under First Class International. It does not carry insurance and therefore incurs additional fees for me. You can choose Priority Mail International for shipping.

INTERNATIONAL buyers: Please note that you are responsible for any extra fees incurred by your customs/tax laws.

I use recycled boxes and packing materials whenever possible.

**If an item is returned to me because of insufficient address or someone is unavailable to accept it, I am willing to resend it to the correct address for an additional shipping fee. If you do not want the item, I can refund the original purchase price only, minus the original shipping.

***If an item is delivered to your address and then stolen, I am not responsible in any way for it. Contact your local post office. The USPS will not honor a loss claim submitted by me for an item that shows delivered in their system.
Additional policies and FAQs
All items are as described and meet Etsy's criteria for vintage items. PLEASE look at the photos carefully so you fully know what you will receive. I may not describe all minor flaws because these items are vintage and most come with flaws. When an item is recycled or repurposed by myself using newer materials with the old, the description will convey this.
