Announcement   !! ATT We're here on the Gulf Coast prowling for treasures as we settle into our winter location in sunny Sarasota, Florida. Half our inventory is in Florida and half in New England, so please contact us BEFORE you click BUY to be sure we can ship any purchases by the time you will need them. If you are viewing our shop on your PHONE screen, please click "ITEM DETAILS" so that you have all the info you need. We provide very detailed info, but lots of buyers overlook that very useful feature!

Questions? PLEASE CONVO FIRST!

But no matter where we are, we always have a tantalizing variety of 18th to 20th-century wares: Textiles, Original Art, Ethnic & Vintage Clothing, Jewelry, Theatrical Props, Collage Elements, Nautical Memorabilia, Books, & Ephemera...

In Florida, we've got lots of vintage & antique paintings and prints along with 19th cent. Chinese country furniture and Mid-century Euro-American Furnishings & Accessories.

Everything here on Etsy in our PROPZ shop IS available, but shipping could be delayed if it's in storage. We don't want anyone to be disappointed, so PLEASE convo FIRST :- ))

We wish you happy hunting as you troll through our select collection of Antique & Mid-century accessories, apparel, kitchen items, fabrics, books...you never know what we'll have. The colorful crescents on our shop banner are a close-up of our own everyday kitchenware-- vintage Fiesta dinner plates!

You'll find many other antique & vintage things for sale: Many are listings that allow you to purchase them via ETSY, whileothers are special items too awkward to ship and so are not offered anywhere else.

Much of our inventory-- like vintage garden & cookery books, Oriental carpets, Victorian quilts, and antique paintings-- are items you'd really want to SEE & TOUCH before buying. Thus, we'll encourage you to come to see these things on MysticMercantile.com in Mystic,Connecticut and at Hollychase.com --or at one of our other short-term, pop-up locations in coastal Maine, Cape Cod, Sarasota, Florida, or even Turkey!

So if you like our style as PROPZ on Etsy, you'll love our PROPZ on Hollychase.com

Shop policies

Last updated on March 2, 2016
Whether you're searching for that one-of-a kind block-printed Turkish headscarf , an embroidered Romanian blouse, a spectacular Paisley shawl or a funky printed apron from the 1950's-- PROPZ may well have it in stock.

Did you say ACCESORIES? Whether they're for you to wear or for your home, office, stage, screen, or photo-shoot, we have them---

Antique & vintage enamelware kitchen dishes, Steampunk oddities & Hawaiian souvenirs, Bavarian porcelain, baskets, kimonos & Oriental carpets...

Martha Stewart and Mad Men can meet Aladdin and Madama Butterfly here at PROPZ!

Think of PROPZ as a combination of a rainy afternoon in your grandmother's attic, an adventure in a Middle Eastern bazaar, and a day spent in your favorite museum.

Payment
Direct Check-out, PayPal, or personal checks in US Dollars.

We prefer Etsy Direct Check-out or PayPal, but don't despair!

If a check / cheque is the only way for you, please contact us by email so you can tell us that is how you wish to pay. Please be sure to give us a phone number so we can telephone you.

Any check you send must be received by us and must have cleared our bank before an item can be shipped. Although it takes more time, we will try to accommodate those who may not own a computer or who are uncomfortable with online payments.bbbbbb
Shipping
Since everything we sell is unique, shipping charges may vary. Weighing and measuring every item and then guessing at the packing weight just does not work for us.

So, the shipping prices listed here on Etsy are our educated estimates. We have items that weigh a few ounces as well as books, pottery, and furnishings that weigh much more.

For most items, we'll insure your purchase and use USPS, flat-rate Priority, Standard Post, and Media mail-- depending on the item. According to your shipping address and how fast you want to receive your purchase, shipping costs can vary. If you like, we can do a customized quote for you before you click BUY here on Etsy. To do that, we'll need the zip code of the destination.

We also encourage local pick-up of purchases if you are in the general areas of Sarasota, Florida or Mystic, Connecticut.

All shipping costs have increased, and US Postal charges are now based on distance. For those items that are heavy or awkward, we may quote an ESTIMATED price when we aren't sure just how far we'll have to send an item. ( We do this for the sake of Etsy's format here).

So if a shipping price seems very high, please email us first to see if we can figure out a way to reduce the charge for you.

In other words-- 5 pounds going via standard mail to Atlanta from Florida is going to cost much less than the same item going to Seattle-- but we may have to quote for Seattle when we load our data into our Etsy listing.

If you are outside the USA, we'll need to give you a custom shipping quote. It may take a day or two to gather that information, but for some small, lightweight, or unbreakable items, we MAY consider shipping internationally. For any international purchase, we'll need to quote for shipping & handling on a case-by-case basis.
Refunds and Exchanges
All items will be described in detail and sold as represented-- in other words, AS IS. Please read our full descriptions of size, condition, and materials.

As a general policy, we do not make refunds.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you have questions or concerns, we'll be happy to email you or speak via phone after we've exchanged initial emails.

We may accept certain consigned items, and we do sell to the trade as well as retail.
