Announcement   A warm welcome.

Offered here are true vintage items, perhaps items you once had or remember your mother or father having when you were very young. These items often unlock delicious and much savored memories.

You will also find some true vintage items that have been rescued, then reconsidered, re-imagined and redrawn with passion and delight. They live in the "Vintage Reborn" section.

I also have a number of beautiful vintage and artisan crucifixes, crosses, stars of David and other religious medals in rosary necklaces, necklaces and bracelets.

And you will find handmade, ARTISAN jewelry: expressive, unique, vibrant, engaging and alluring: always eye-catching.

Each and every item is special, and only items that tickle me, whisper in my ear and move me line the shelves of this little shop.

Nothing more. Nothing less.

Come. Visit. Listen to the little bell above the door jingle lightly when you push the door open.

There's a fire burning, and the kettle is on.

Stay for a cup of tea.

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT SHIPPING COSTS:

The quotes for shipping are are based on experience, however, they sometimes end up being higher than the actual cost to ship is. I WILL REFUND ANYTHING OVER $1.00 IMMEDIATELY after I package, weigh and formally calculate postage.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING:

PLEASE READ MY SHOP POLICIES REGARDING INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING.

I ship within the United States and to Canada, France, Australia and the UK.

I have just added FRANCE and BELGIUM to the "ship to" list, so, if you are from France or Belgium, and want to order something and don't yet see a shipping cost, please convo me so I can provide one to you. Thank you.

I do not ship to Italy, Russia, China, Japan, Korea, Viet Nam, Mexico, the Middle East, Spain, South America or any other countries.

WRAPPING AND SHIPPING:

Your treasures will be carefully packaged and shipped as quickly as possible. I ship often and always tell you a) when I will ship and b) send you a shipping transaction and tracking number AFTER I ship (the same day). If you have any problems, please notify me so I can swiftly address them. Thank you!

You will find shipping costs on GLASS and CHINA are reasonably high. This is because they weigh much more than other items, and I am sure you would prefer to receive them in one piece rather than a hundred. Should the cost of shipping be less than stated, the overage will immediately be refunded to your PayPal. Due to the HUGE rise in shipping costs, I have had to raise my shipping prices on all items to keep in concert with this. I will ALWAYS refund any overage in shipping cost. Always.

PROBLEMS:

IF you have a problem, please contact me immediately. My history is superb in terms of communication with customers. I strive to please you on all fronts and NEVER ever ever misrepresent my items! I will always give refunds or exchanges for reasonable reasons.

If you are a customer who just adores leaving negative feedback for spite, please do not purchase from me: it is not worth my time, or yours.

If something is lost during shipment, I am not the post office: I did not lose it. I always provide a tracking number and a shipping notification when a package is sent. I pack carefully and check and double check addresses before I ship. I do not ship anything in a very small package that has a larger tendency to GET lost. Therefore, if a package is lost, it is not my responsibility to refund you any money.

OFFERS: Reasonable offers are always entertained and responded to.

A NOTE ON VINTAGE: Vintage is...vintage. It is old. It is likely used. It is likely more delicate than new pieces, though also, very likely, made better. We do not clean antique jewelry. That is left to the new owner. Please be aware that used items may carry with them visible reminders of their journeys through a long span of time. I think of these as fine wrinkles, gained through a lifetime of experiences.

I only wish I could hear what they had to say about them.

Omigosh! This was the FASTEST shipping I've ever seen, and the packaging was so very, very pretty. I LOVE my new earrings; they are even more gorgeous in person. What beautiful workmanship! These are truly a treasure!

Shipping
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING:

*I ship ONLY to the United States, Canada, France, the U.K. and Australia. NO shipments to Russia, Italy, The Middle East, Spain, Argentina, China, South America, Japan, Korea, Viet Nam or the Netherlands, so please do not ask.

I do not ship to intermediaries, which includes shipping companies, friends, relatives, etc. so they can ship items along TO countries other than specified. If I am tricked into shipping to an intermediary, or this information is not revealed, I claim and hold NO RESPONSIBILITY for ANY PACKAGE once it is posted from my shop. If it gets lost or stolen in shipment, I am not responsible and you will NOT be reimbursed. If you do not like it and want to return it, I will NOT provide a refund. There will, in fact, be NO REFUNDS in these instances or any instances relating TO using an intermediary of any kind to receive a shipment from me.

WRAPPING:

Your treasures will be beautifully wrapped, carefully packaged and shipped as quickly as possible.

PRICING:

You may see what appears to be a broad difference in pricing on some vintage items. These prices are not arrived at by serendipity. Individual item prices are based on age, rarity, artistry, size and condition. Feel free to convo me anytime if you wish to discuss this.

**SHIPPING:

Please be aware that shipping costs WILL vary. They are calculated by weight. Some tin items, for example, are heavier than others. Glass is always heavier: some of it heavier than other pieces. Tablecloths are also generally quite heavy. I weigh everything before I list it and calculate a shipping cost from the weight alone.

If there is a discrepancy of over $1.00 in what you paid for shipping, I will refund the money to your PayPal account immediately.

I will generally notify you when you buy something, and give you a general idea of when I will be shipping your item (usually the next day). If you have any problems, please notify me so I can swiftly address them. Thank you!

I provide shipping notifications that include a tracking number to every customer directly after I ship an item.

INSURANCE:

If you wish an item insured, please contact me and I will find out what insurance costs and ask you to pay for it.

FEEDBACK:

I am absolutely intent on providing my customer's feedback that is as positive as humanly possible, and providing it quickly. I'd appreciate it greatly, if you are pleased with your purchase, that you leave me positive feedback as well. If you have a PROBLEM with a purchase, a conversation or...anything...I ask you to contact me FIRST before resorting to leaving negative feedback. If you do not contact me first for reasonable conversation, I will not sell to you again.

If giving people negative feedback is how you get your jollies, please do not buy anything from me: I don't need the headaches.

I retain the right to refuse service to anyone who is extremely unpleasant, bullying, foot-stompingly demanding or flat-out insane. IF someone of that ilk still buys something at my shop without heeding my note to them that I will not in future sell to them, I retain the right to CANCEL the transaction. I will then refund your money. If you CONTINUE doing this for either spite or fun, I will STILL cancel the transaction and return your money.

Eventually, even you will get tired.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are unhappy with your item, please contact me to discuss, and in almost all cases, I will ask you to return it and issue a full refund for the original item. If your request is unreasonable, I will not issue a refund, however "buyer's remorse" is not a good reason for a refund.

I am very very flexible: I want my customers to be happy.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please feel free to ask me to HOLD an item for you if you know when it is you are going to be able to purchase it - a time not to exceed one week. Always happy to accommodate. If I do not hear from you and have been holding your item for a week and have not heard from you, it will be taken off reserve.
