Welcome to Poetry of Objects. As you know vintage is often well loved. Our items are purchased at estate sales, auctions and flea markets..any with flaws will be noted in item descriptions. Handmade items will be listed with quality workmanship. All items are carefully packaged for shipment. My goal is to give you the service that you as an Etsy buyer deserves. We want you to be satisfied.

Paypal is currently the only method of payment accepted in our shop. Rest assured though, you do not have to have a paypal account to pay with paypal! You can use a debit or credit card. If you have questions regarding paying with paypal, contact us and we will try to help you.

Immediate payment is expected. Sale may be cancelled, and item relisted if payment is not received within 24 hours of checkout. Thank you.
Please make sure your paypal and Etsy account reflect your proper address or contact me with this change as soon as you purchase an object. I often make shipping labels as soon as I receive an order. I pay for the shipping at this time. If you change an address after ordering an object, I will need to charge you again for shipping as I will need to printout a new label with the addtional cost, as shipping is very expensive. Thanks so much for being aware of this.

1. All items over 25$ are insured and this is included in the price.

2. Books ship media mail. This takes a bit longer for deliver. Please convo me if you'd like faster delivery on books, there will be a shipping cost adjustment.

3. All other orders ship USPS First Class Mail or Priority Mail unless they are on the large/heavy side, then they may need to ship Parcel Post. I also use Fedex occasionally.

4. We ship as soon as possible. Sometimes this can take up to 4 days, if we need to build a custom box for your item. All shipping costs are priced from the east coast to the west coast and are estimates. If there ends up being $2 or more of an overcharge on shipping and handling you will refunded via Paypal. If we haven't caught this, please let us know!

5. INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING is expensive! However, we do love to ship our items to you, if you see something you'd like to have! If an item CAN be shipped internationally (sometimes larger items are just too difficult/expensive to ship), the shipping cost will be included in the listing

Any remaining postage left over after shipping wil be refunded through paypal. Shipping may be subject to change regarding storms and winter weather. I ship by USPS using, first class, priority mail, both domestic and international, using my packaging, padded envelopes, or priority boxes and flat rate boxes. UPS ground will be used if the items is too heavy to go usps and will take approx 5 days.

Please contact me with special shipping requests or shipping upgrades before you pay for your item. I do combine shipments and would like notficiation before packaging your items so that I may include all in one box if possible.

Insurance is optional on non-breakable items. All items domestically are shipped using delivery confirmation. Shipping without delivery confirmation is not an option. I will send you a notice of payment received and a shipping notice when your item is sent.

International shipments: Using first class or priority, or flat rate box if applicable. Many items are very large and quite costly to ship internationally. Figuring out shipping costs can take a few days and I will contact you as soon as possible about your quote.

Recycled packaging is used as well as new, along with USPS boxes and envelopes.International buyers are responsible for custom fees.
Refunds and Exchanges
Please be sure you love an item before you purchase it! All sales are final.

Items are sold in "as is" condition. Vintage collectors expect to have a certain amount of 'use' displayed in their goods. We make great effort to accurately describe an item and the condition it is in.

Each piece is unique....the flaws as well as the beauty of an item create that poetry of an object that we love.

Please contact us prior to purchase if you have any questions.

Our goal is to provide you with several pictures of each item and a thorough description in hopes you have all of the information needed to feel confident in your purchasing decision.

If you are not satisfied with your purchase please talk with us about it and we'll try to work something out with you. We'd rather hear from you than have you unhappy with your experience.
Additional policies and FAQs
Gift Services: Custom gift wrapping is available along with a card for your special occasion, just contact me.

All items are from a non-smoking home. Vintage linens are washed and ironed by me unless the item would be damaged by washing.

Let me know if you are wishing for a particular item. I come across many vintage finds and would be happy to keep you in mind when I'm out poetry hunting.

Reserve items: Please contact me if you would like to Reserve an item. I am willing to reserve an item for a limited amount of time with a time committment from you. If you are not able to keep your arrangement I will need to relist the item for sale. Please do not purchase an item if is labelled RESERVED for someone else. Unfortunately, I will need to remove the purchase and relist it for the intended buyer. Thank you so much for understanding.
