Michelle L.


I live and work in the best treasure-hunting territory in the world: Los Angeles, California.

I began Shop MichL after I came into possession of several storage units filled with amazing antique treasures. Soon I was haunting estate sales, buying collections, and finally crossed a line into obsessive curb-shopping and alley-catting. I dig through the boring, the broken, the dingy, the distressed. I find the gems. There is no depth to which I will not sink to bring the best of vintage to YOU.

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
I accept PayPal, Etsy Direct Checkout and Etsy gift certificates.
If I overestimate shipping by more than $1.00, I IMMEDIATELY REFUND THE DIFFERENCE YOU. (If I underestimate - oops, that's my problem! You are protected either way.)

I ship by UPS ground, USPS First Class or Parcel Post, depending on the size/weight. If you need it quicker, just contact me before buying, and I'll adjust the listing to include expedited shipping.

For International Buyers: I love shipping internationally! Please contact me, and I will happily give you a quote for shipping to your exact location.

I normally ship to the exact address on your PayPal or Etsy Checkout invoice, because that protects us both against incorrectly shipped packages. If you need something sent to a different address (for example, if the item is a gift), I'm happy to do it. But I do require an email or Etsy convo from you, specifically requesting the change. If an item is sent back to me from an incorrect address that you provided, unfortunately I will have to charge you to reship the item.

I pack very carefully and insure fragile items. (So far, I have not had even a single breakage. Yay!) But sometimes...well, stuff happens! If you do receive an item damaged in transit, PLEASE TAKE A PHOTO OF THE ITEM INCLUDING THE PACKAGING, which will be needed to put in an insurance claim.
Refunds and Exchanges
Vintage items are sold as is, often including marks of age and well-loved use. I try to provide great pics and descriptions - but, of course, please contact me with ANY questions you may have before purchasing! I answer all inquiries as fully as I can.
