Paradise is Sometimes Messy. Really Messy.

We met eight years ago and fell in love. How? Still trying to figure that one out, since we resemble our cars in the differences in our backgrounds and perspectives But we work together seamlessly, especially when it comes to vintage.

We're happiest hunting together at flea markets and estate sales, where we search for unique items, bring them home, and then step around them until they are repaired, cleaned, photographed, listed, and stored for one of our Etsy shops. Whew!

Each of our three Etsy stores has its own personality, and we hope you'll explore all three, which, together, we call Paradise Vintage:

Welcome, fellow retro lover. Thank you so much for exploring our shop.

Because shipping is very expensive and, if not correctly estimated, can negate anything we might make on what is sold.

We charge what it will cost us to ship and no more. We ship the least-expensive method, via USPS, and we use a calculator Etsy provides to determine the estimate provided, which is based upon the item's weight, and, more importantly, its dimensions (items larger than 15" on any side are often drastically higher to ship).

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Buy with Apple Pay
  • Pay with Sofort
  • Pay with iDeal
  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
I accept Paypal and major credit cards via Paypal. Same-day payment is most appreciated! I will ship orders upon confirmed receipt of payment.
We ship once per week, unless you tell us you need us to process your your item immediately.

We do our very best to package products for safe shipping, and reuse clean packing materials to keep costs down for seller and buyer--and to minimize environmental impact.

Shipping within the U.S. is based on the most recent USPS published rates. We use Priority Mail, which includes up to $100 in insurance for your protection.

We're happy to ship internationally! Please convo before purchase and include your zip code for an exact international shipping quote.

International buyers are responsible for duties, customs, and taxes.
Refunds and Exchanges
We value our customers and want you to be happy with your item.

Please, if you are unhappy for any reason, contact me through Etsy Convo before you leave feedback, and I will make every effort to resolve your concern to your satisfaction.

Generally, exchanges are only considered if the item is believed to be significantly different from its representation in the original item description.

Everything we sell is at least 20 years old and most items are much older, so signs of wear are not unusual. However, we do attempt to describe and photograph any noticeable signs of damage or wear.

Please convo me before ordering to obtain additional measurements or a clearer idea of condition if you still have questions or need something in "perfect" condition.
