Six years ago, I sold this piece to the set designer for Mad Men. It is being auctioned now with other set pieces for about 10 tines what I sold it for, thanks to Don Draper throwing his trash in it in season 7.
Sometimes a theme emerges! My shop just turned into a winter wonderland....

About

I bought my first antique in 5th Grade

If your heart beats faster for vintage, you are welcome here. My style is all about the joy of contrasts. I like sweet things, but only with coffee!

That's why I stock a big fat section of floral cottage decor AND another category of hard-edged, industrial decor. And clothes. and jewelry. And books and papers and my personal favorite...vintage prints, paintings and artwork. I think carefully about what I stock in the store and really love each piece you see here.

I absolutely believe in vintage. My own house if full of it. It is made better, lasts longer and has much more individuality than anything from a big box. It is a joy to me to help you find the kind of personally expressive things that make you feel more like yourself in your own skin and in your own home.

I come from a long line of antique collectors and vintage buyers. I grew up surrounded with McCoy pottery and thick 1940s cotton tablecloths. I've been buying my clothes from thrift stores since I earned my first babysitting money. It's been my story ever since I can remember. It makes me happy to share it with you.

Ideally, every transaction will go smoothly, but realistically problems do happen. Always convo me if something goes wrong so I can make it right if possible. I rarely have losses or breakages and will work out situations on a case by case basis to your complete satisfaction. Always convo me before leaving feedback.

If the item does not fit, isn't what you imagined, or you just plain change your mind, you are responsible for the cost of return shipping, so be sure to check measurements carefully BEFORE purchasing. No refund is available on an item that is returned to me damaged.

Returns must be set up within ONE WEEK of your receiving your item. I cannot refund after this time frame, so be sure to check your packages promptly and convo immediately about any problems.
Payment
I still accept money orders from the US as well as paypal and credit cards.

I reserve the right to cancel a reserve after five days with no communication.
Shipping
Most items are shipped via United States Postal System via Priority Mail.

If your country is not listed as an option, I have probably not listed it because the shipping would be unusually expensive. If your heart is set on it, I am happy to ship it to you if you are willing to pay that shipping cost.

Ground and First Class is available on large and international orders respectively.

Shipping overages on orders of two or more items are refunded. (It's is usually a shipping bargain to buy more than one item!)

I pay any shipping costs that exceed my stated price.

Most items are insured. Refunds are for the price of item, but not shipping costs as per the USPS. Please inquire if you experience a loss BEFORE leaving any feedback so that I can resolve your dilemma to your satisfaction.

Upgrades for faster shipping or different carriers are available on a case-by-case basis. Please inquire.
Additional policies and FAQs
Other questions:
"I want to buy more than one item, but the shipping seems high?" I will refund anything that exceeds the actual price of shipping when you purchase more than one item.

"Can you adjust the shipping specifically for my country?" Yes

"Can you provide other pictures or measurements?" Yes

"Can I request a different shipping method (ie. expedited, first class, etc.)?" Yes
