Southeast Girl and Northwest Boy find Treasures Together!
Mix together a gal from sunny Florida and a guy from British Columbia's wet, west coast - add a heapin' bowl of vintage collectables from Victoria, B.C. (Canada's retirement capital and a collector's haven) and you have a recipe for enough vintage goodies to share with everyone.
Our shop features mid-century books, clothing, accessories, toys, magazines, decor, craft and art supplies, paper ephemera, photos, kitchenware, holiday decor, catalogs and much more. In fact, we have a backlog of a couple hundred vintage funky & functional, classy & kitschy items just waiting to be unleashed upon the world. So check back often - you never know what will show up next from Skookum Industries!
Our customers range from collectors of all stripes worldwide (we've sold items to more than a dozen countries), Hollywood prop houses for use in television and films, museums and institutions, publishing and media companies, and the core of our clientele - regular folks like you with a keen eye for the cool!

Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
Most of our groovy items are shipped via Canada Post within 3 business days of the order being placed. Many shipped even sooner.
Strong, secure, clean recycled, re-used and re-purposed shipping materials are used whenever possible (almost always, in fact!)
Although most of our paper and smaller items arrive within 1 to two weeks please be aware Canada Post shipping may take longer, especially outside North America and on parcels heavier than 500 gms (1lb). Up to 4 to 6 weeks for larger items - and even up to 8 to 12 weeks for Australia and New Zealand - so your patience is appreciated. Shipping from Canada is also more expensive - we do our best to keep shipping costs to you as low as possible, and do not charge for handling or shipping materials - only the actual shipping charge from Canada Post.
Quicker shipping (even overnight in many cases!) can be easily arranged - but please be advised faster shipping charges will be cost more and need to be arranged in advance.
See individual items for shipping information. Combine orders for additional savings - please convo first for actual shipping cost when combining orders for most accurate rates and full savings. Shipping insurance and tracking numbers available by request.
If the actual shipping cost turns out to be $2 or more under what we charged you for shipping you will be refunded the difference via PayPal. If the actual shipping cost turns out to be more than what we quoted - you come out ahead!
