About

Nomads with Baggage

Carol and I have spent much of our lives traveling the world. A few years back we realized that we both had far to many beautiful things, so we decided to set up a store where we could hopefully connect beautiful objects with people who would appreciate them.

It took us several years of sorting, research, and determination to finally set up our store here on Etsy. We are still a fairly new store so bear with us as we expand our stock. Currently our stock is made up of merchandise from over fifteen countries.

For potential customers with allergies we are a smoke and pet free store.

Please drop us a note if you have any questions or want to know the history of any of our pieces. We hope to add more to our store each month as we continue being nomads with baggage!

Best wishes,
Alexis & Carol

Welcome to Nomads with Baggage!

This lovely little shop was the harebrained idea of Alexis & Carol and was thought up sometime back in 2008 after we realized how large our stock and personal collections of vintage and antique items had grown. Now we have the opportunity to share them with you. Collectively we have been to more than 30 countries and are excited to share some beautiful finds with you.

Alexis is a Classical historian and archaeologist, she also designs jewelry copying and inspired by pieces from the ancient world, specifically Ancient Greek, Roman, Etruscan, and Egyptian. She will be adding handmade jewelry and art to our store.

Carol is the avid collector and antique hunter, she acquired most of the pieces in our store and has an excellent eye for everything from vintage clothing to fine china.

Thank you for looking at our store! Please check back as we are always adding new pieces.

Best wishes,
Alexis & Carol


P.S. We would like to thank our shop models Celia, Matina, and Sandra.

If you have a minute we hope you will take a look at Sandra's store Duck Duck Wool!

Payment
Currently we accept Paypal and money orders. We now accept direct credit card payment. Payment must be posted within 7-10 days of purchase. If payment is not made or posted within 10 days of purchase we reserve the right to cancel the order. Contact us if there is a problem!

Items will not be posted until payment is processed.

If you accidentally purchased an item (and we have all clicked the wrong button at least once in our lives) you have 24 hours to contact us and cancel the order.
Shipping
We ship using USPS. All items are insured for their full cost (especially fine jewelry). We are not responsible for any items that are damaged or missing through the post office.

Shipping cost is difficult to calculate for multiple items given the diversity of things we offer in our store. If we have over estimated in our calculations for an individual item or combined shipping you will be refunded. If we have underestimated we will send you a notice of how much you owe.

At the moment we are not offering international shipping, but feel free to contact us and we can try to work something out.
Refunds and Exchanges
Buyers must contact us about returns within 3 days of arrival and post the item back to us in 30 days. We will only offer a refund if the buyer finds there is a serious difference how an item was portrayed in our store and what they received. We sell vintage and antique items. Some of them show their age and we indicate this in each and every post.

Please feel free to contact us if there is a problem.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you are interested in an item we will be happy to place it on hold for 24 hours. Just send us a note!

In instances where we are approached by an individual about repricing an item any offer we make will be valid for three business days from the date of the offer was made.

In very rare circumstances we can set up a layaway system for customers. We will work out a schedule of payment with our customers. Customers who miss one scheduled payment without contacting the store within a 72 hour window regarding the payment will forfeit the item and any payments they have made. Customers will be notified each time a new listing has been created for the next scheduled payment in a layaway situation. Each time a listing is generated for the next scheduled payment in a layaway situation a .20 cent fee will be added to the listing to pay for the listing. The item will not be shipped until it has been paid for in full. If you have any questions contact us.

Please note: For all Virginia customers there is a 6.00% sales tax on items!
