Today was a beautiful day for a trip to Acadia National Park! (These newly listed Maine stones were picked long ago on a Maine beach trip.)
Ice today in the Penobscot River. Before refrigeration, ice was harvested here for “ice boxes.” And ice buckets I’m sure. This one is from the 1960's. Available today from VintageMaineia.

About

Part-Time Selling with Attention to Detail

My husband and I got our start selling vintage online in 2002. We moved on from de-hoarding my family to curating our Maine-based shop.

In 2009, we moved from near Etsy's headquarters in Brooklyn to Maine. We love it up here!

I enjoy the process - acquiring the item, making friends with it and enjoying it a bit. Researching is so much fun! Then photographing the piece and listing it to its best advantage, but noting any flaws as well. When it sells, I get a little closure as I carefully pack the item up and pass it along to someone who will love it, or even repurpose it into something amazing.

My avatar is a painting by Charles Henry Richert of his wife on their honeymoon in circa 1900. He was my grandmother's uncle. Here is my Pinterest art gallery of his work:

Frequently asked questions

Where do you obtain your items?

We source all of our items here in Maine.

Are your items new?

Most are vintage (pre-loved). Vintage items are for those who appreciate the character and uniqueness of bygone eras. Most vintage items will show some signs of use and wear. I try hard to be complete in my descriptions and fully disclose any known flaws. Please respect the amount of my time and effort by reading my descriptions thoroughly and viewing all of the photos.

What if I have a question about an item?

We are happy to answer any questions you have about condition, quantity, or size before purchasing an item. Please convo us.

I can't see the whole item. Can you provide more pictures?

Please contact me via convo to request more pictures.

Do you have more items?

Please contact me if you are looking for something. We may just have it, or we may be able to obtain it for you.

What if I change my mind?

Of course, you may change your mind, but in that case, you can expect to pay the shipping. In today's world, we need to see photos of any issues. The USPS requires them for any insurance claims, as well.

What kind of Money Orders do you accept?

Only US postal money orders issued by the USPS. They can be cashed when I drop off packages at the post office.
