About TheLittleRedOwl

Sales 87
On Etsy since 2012

One of a kind finds & furniture to turn your house into a home.

I opened The Little Red Owl in September 2012 after starting my blog ( in November 2011.

I feel passionate about home decor, design, frugality, and thrift store finds. I love having unique, one of a kind items and furniture in my home. I believe this gives me a home that is all my own AND I believe YOU can achieve that as well. A home and one's surroundings can directly effect mood and I want yours to be positive-I want you to love your home!

I opened this shop as a way to share my philosophy with the world and hopefully save some people from boring big box decor.

I work out of my home in Northern Kentucky, located close to the Ohio River. My craft room is my workshop, shipping station, photography studio, and warehouse. Although my craft room serves many functions, it is extremely organized and works for my small business.

I use high quality primers, paints, and stains on my upcycled furniture and I do my best to ensure lasting quality on all pieces.

My vintage finds are items I am drawn to immediately. I go with my gut and only sell items and furniture that I would buy for my own home (sometimes making it difficult to part with the goods I find :)).

My husband helps with the heavy lifting and shipping runs for my shop and is always there for moral support.

One thing I strive for is excellent customer service. My day job involves a large amount of customer service and I know how important it is to treat your customer's properly-like you would family.

I have been so inspired by my family. My parents and grandparents have unique items and furniture all over their home. Their belief is that anything you own should be taken care of to the best of your ability-no matter if it is old, new, a hand me down or a find.

I also believe that reusing items and upcycling furniture is good for the earth-it cuts down on new items being manufactured and makes us appreciate what we have.

That's the long and short of it. Enjoy looking around and stay a while if you like.

Hello and Welcome.
My name is Amy and I am the face behind The Little Red Owl. I have a passion for all things HOME. I love to decorate, paint, DIY, and home make anything. I believe that a person's surroundings have a huge effect on their mood and attitude-why not surround yourself with things you love?

In my shop you will find upcycled vintage wares for every room in your home. I only sell items I would put in my own home and items I am immediately drawn to.

I have been up-cycling hand painted furniture for over 10 years. I am happy to do custom orders so please contact me if there is something you are interested in but do not see in my shop. I think you will find my shop offers a unique style.

  • Other Method
Returns and exchanges
I will be happy to refund the purchase price minus shipping fees for an item returned to me in shipped condition within 10 days of confirmed receipt.

I always want you to be happy with your purchase so if something does not seem correct or you have issues-please convo me anytime.
Payment is generally expected in 2-3 days, if other arrangements need to be made-please convo me before purchasing to see if there is a solution.
I accept payment through PayPal, Etsy gift cards, and direct payment (credit cards).
Ready-Made items are shipped within 1-3 days unless otherwise stated. Custom orders vary depending on whether or not the furniture piece is in my shop or is something I must locate before customizing. Generally 7-14 days will be the turn around time.

I ship large furniture items only within the United States and via Greyhound shipping. Generally this means you would make a trip to your local station to pick up the item once it arrives BUT Greyhound does offer door to door service in most cities and I am more than happy to accommodate that for the additional cost (this is minimal, around $20-$50 more usually). If you are interested in this just convo me and I can work up a quote for you.

Also, Shipping large furniture can take up to 2 weeks depending on where the item is shipping to-I can give you a better idea of the time frame once I have your information.

Keep in mind when items are being shipped internationally it may take 2-6 weeks for your purchase to arrive depending on your countries customs laws.

I purchase insurance and signature confirmation on all shipped packages when available.
Additional policies and FAQs
As furniture pieces and vintage items are used-normal wear and tear can be expected. I do try to represent each and every piece as accurately as possible. I will list any imperfections in the listing. Please convo me anytime if there are questions regarding a specific listing or item.
