About

Welcome to our shop of useful tchotchkes and wonderful doo-dads!

Welcome! To my partner's dismay, I always decorate my house with doohickeys and thingamabobs. He was pleased when I decided to share the wealth with you!

I'm also a writer, an artist, and a poet, and you'll often find me with my nose in some beautifully musty used bookstore aisle or spending hours in a salvage yard or hardware store or a grandpa's untouched barn!

My mother died a few years ago and she left me this AMAZING treasure trove of ... well, treasures! She was an amazing artist, recovered antique dealer, and renowned Native American beader, so some of her stuff is sprinkled throughout. I've finally started going through our storage unit! I've had to keep my Collection Obsession in check and Etsy is the perfect place to do that. I'm putting new things up often and I trust you'll come back for more. Ciao!!

    I grew up loving anything that was older than me and I started collecting as a toddler, I swear. I specialize in the early '50s through late '70s, though lots of yummy stuff from other eras will end up clogging up my house. And your screen.

Returns and exchange details
ALL SALES ARE FINAL. By making a purchase at The Domestic Darling you are acknowledging that you have read our policies and agree to them. The only exception is when the listed measurements are incorrect or if the item is not as described. Please ASK QUESTIONS BEFORE PURCHASING. We work hard with our customers to ensure satisfaction and to make you happy!

Please remember that you are purchasing vintage. Notable flaws or imperfections other than normal vintage wear and tear are included in the descriptions of our items. If it's clothing, imagine yourself wearing it! Remember vintage clothing often runs a bit small. Consider measuring an item of clothing that you already own and compare those measurements.

Our vintage has been lovingly maintained and gently used. Keep in mind that you are buying “As Is” and the problems, if any, are shown and pointed out carefully in pictures.

Thus, we would appreciate you getting in touch with us right away if there is a problem. We ask that you convo us about the item within 3 days of receipt and we'll assess the transaction on a case-by-case basis.
Payment
We accept Direct Checkout and Paypal. If you don't already have a Paypal account, it's easy-peasy to set one up. See paypal.com for details.

If payment does not arrive or we haven't heard from you within 3 business days, we reserve the right to re-list. Talk to us as soon as you can and we will gladly work with you on the issue.

Props and accessories are not for sale unless otherwise noted.
Shipping
IF BUYING MULTIPLE ITEMS, PLEASE CONTACT US PRIOR TO CHECK-OUT, AS WE OFFER COMBINED SHIPPING.

Shipping methods are at the discretion of the buyer.

Items are shipped 2x a week within 3-5 business days. Priority Mail will have insurance. Items damaged in transit are covered by insurance, so please contact us in this rare situation.

International buyers are welcome! All duties or tariffs are the responsibility of the buyer. We do not have any control over these charges or delays due to customs inspections.
Additional policies and FAQs
Book conditions and clothing conditions details are specified on the ITEM DETAILS page. All jewelry and most of the other items have been left in an "as is" condition. It is up to you to really give them a good cleaning, if they need it!

This is a smoke free, pet-FULL shop! We'll try OUR best to ensure that no puppy hairs or kitty fur balls go out of our door. Some items may have a slightly vintage-y smell to them. Some have been in storage for a length of time, so some odor is normal. We package your items uber-carefully and recycle packaging when possible. ViNtAgE ~ it's a green thang!
