About SouthernLadyEstates

Sales 4,927
On Etsy since 2012


Welcome to SouthernLadyEstates!

I have been a collector of antique and vintage items for almost 40 years. I began avidly collecting the year my husband and I became engaged. I guess it is in my genes. My parents have been in the antique business almost 30 years and my aunt over 40 years. I was also very fortunate to marry into a family that had an appreciation for the beauty and charm of handcrafted items. My mother-in-law and I would always visit auctions and estate sales on our visits to her home.

I have always been fascinated with the search for treasure, whether it was old broken pieces of pottery near a farmhouse or even arrowheads along a lakeshore. I think part of the intrigue is uncovering something that was once considered lost and imagining the story behind the items.

Some of my fondest memories are of my grandmother who loved to sew, crochet, and garden. She always prepared a beautiful Sunday dinner with linens. I am sure that is why I am drawn to linens and you can always find some in my shop. One aunt often enlisted my help to polish her silver. I never minded the work because I enjoyed seeing something so dull become so beautiful.

As much as I enjoy treasure hunting, my real treasure is truly my family. I have a wonderful husband of 39 years who is an exceptionally talented artist, three beautiful talented daughters and 5 active grandchildren, who I enjoy so very much!

Thank you for visiting my shop! I try to add new items daily, so please check back often and email if you have a request.

Additional policies and FAQs
I will only use your shipping and billing address, and contact information
- To communicate with you about your order
- To fulfill your order
To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (if it is a gift, whom for and any message or information regarding them), if you contact me directly or note so on your order.

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfill your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years. I do not share your email or use your personal information in marketing or other practices without contacting you first. The only time I might perhaps contact you after the completion of the sale is to send you a shop coupon or other sale notification. I do not use or sell your personal information.

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
