RosePetalResources' Shop Policies


Rose Petal Curiosity Shop is where you'll find fabulous gifts from a long ago time. Our shelves house a bit of history from the entire world. These marvelous finds of "life in the past lane" are still charming us as much today as ever before.

We invite you to stroll down memory lane, imagine or remember what the good ole days were like; and experience the brand new, “Nostalgically New”, harmonic blend of old mixing with new. Let the past bring meaningful treasures to the present. All our gifts, whether vintage, handmade or a twist of both, we proudly bring to you for your gift giving pleasures.

I am fairly new to collecting ladies compacts and learning about their endless history. When purchasing compacts, I first look for what most appeals to me visually. Next I’m intrigued with finding out its age and the history of the maker. Lastly, but certainly not least, I love holding one of these beauties in my hand, running my finger tips over the surface and reflecting upon how many women before me held this very compact as I am now and I wonder what their lives were like. Micro artifacts of feminine vanity, wealth, grace, art, history and more are captured very expressly in compacts of yesteryear; and that will never cease to amaze me.

Our favorite quote:
"People may forget what you say or do,
but they'll never forget how you made them feel" - Maya Angelou

Rose Petal Curiosity Shop was developed by my husband and I. We have a passion for finding treasures for family and friends; and decided to extend our services to others by selling on Etsy. Explore our nook like you would book. Enjoy!


We currently offer PayPal and Credit Cards for purchases. (6% Sales Tax must be added for residences of PA).


OUR Promise: We will promptly ship the same day that full payment is verified; or the very next business day. We use excellent packing techniques to ensure your purchase arrives safely.

OUR METHODS: We generally ship smaller items First Class Mail. We will send you the tracking number. If you would like insurance for an additional fee, please contact us and we will let you know the Post Office cost.
Large items and some higher priced items will be shipped Priority Mail. If you want insurance, please contact us before purchase.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING- We will ship to almost anywhere. Most of the items we sell are light weight and can be shipped in small boxes or envelopes. These packages can be shipped First Class Mail which is the least expensive. However there are some drawbacks to this choice. First there is not any tracking information and once we mail the package at the Post Office neither you nor us can track where it is in the process. We also do not have any idea how long it will take for delivery. The usual time is from one week to one month, but on rare occasions it can take longer. Not knowing and not having any information can be stressful for both of us. Secondly there is no ability to insure the package with First Class Mail. Since we have no control over the postal system, we cannot be responsible once we deliver the package to the Post Office. Having said all of the above, we have ship many items internationally without an incident.

To track First Class Mail you need to add Registered Mail at an additional cost of $11.50. This service also includes insurance. If you want the package sent registered mail, please let us know

Any duties or fees assessed are the responsibility of the buyer.
Our policy is not to mark custom forms as gifts, because we do not have personal knowledge it is a gift as required by law.
