About

The Wonderful Patina of Age

My vintage Etsy Shop, The Pig’s Meow, is solely run out of my personal residence. I have a room dedicated to the storage of all my items, which also includes a packing and shipping area and a photo booth. Once I determine an item is to be sold, whether it comes from my personal collection, an estate sale, auction or flea market, it is inventoried, photographed and wrapped in bubble wrap and boxed so that the condition of the item remains protected.

As mentioned above, I find vintage items from many sources and I try to ensure they are in good condition. I love vintage items, and my home contains many unique treasures that I have showcased in the pictures above. I hope this illustrates that I am dedicated to preserving these wonderful finds. Items that have survived the passage of time, items that bring back wonderful memories, and items that we can pass on to the next generation.

I personally shop, inventory, answer questions, and ship all items. My husband and I do travel periodically and in that instance, I ask our adult daughter, who has her own Etsy Shop, to ship items for me. She does an excellent job and I have received many comments on her great packing. I always have a computer, so I am never away from my shop, but I am sometimes away from my inventory and need her help. So when you visit my shop, rest assured you are dealing only with me and I take full responsibility for the representation of my items.

Welcome to The Pig’s Meow. We offer many types of vintage items, so check back often because you never know what I might find as I attend auctions, estate sales, second hands stores, etc. I only offer items that I believe to be in the best possible condition and I look for original boxes or packaging. I love finding that special item for you !!

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover

Payment
I offer PayPal and Direct Checkout that allows several credit cards as noted during the checkout process. Indiana residents will be charged a 7% sales tax.
Shipping
I ship within the United States and consider international shipping on a case by case basis. I ship Priority Mail through USPS where possible, with a tracking number. Heavier or bulky items I ship Standard Parcel Post to keep the shipping reasonable. I will combine shipping for multiple purchases if it is feasible to ship items together. My shipping estimates are only intended to cover reasonable shipping and handling costs. I do refund overage on shipping charges when excessive and on combined shipping of multiple items when applicable. I normally ship within 1-3 days of purchasing unless noted otherwise.

If you are an international customer, please convo me for a shipping quote before you purchase. Please note: any customs fees and applicable taxes are to be paid by the buyer. We do not devalue items nor will we mark the package as a gift, all in accordance with US law. Also I will only consider shipping international if I can obtain shipping insurance, which is not available for all countries.
Refunds and Exchanges
All sales are final however refunds will be made only with prior authorization from the seller on a case by case basis. For example, if the item is materially misrepresented from the item description and pictures, I will refund or exchange the item. I strive for 100% customer satisfaction, so I ask that you contact me within 2 days of receiving the item to resolve any dispute. By material misrepresentation, it would have to be a listing error that would materially impact the value of the item. An example would be a chip or crack on an item represented as not having such a condition. I try to make detailed descriptions and accurately represent the condition of the item. If there is an unusual condition, I will normally add a picture to accurately show the condition. I do not want to intentionally misrepresent any item because your time and money is very valuable, as well as mine.

If an item is damaged during shipping, please send me a picture and we will discuss returning the item for a refund. I do carry insurance on most items and I will notify you if that is the case. If a claim is necessary, I will require a signed statement that will be filed with the Insurance Company. In that case, please do not file a claim with PayPal or Etsy. The refund will be processed through the Insurance Company.
Additional policies and FAQs
I sell vintage items that are used by nature and have a wonderful history to share. Other than cleaning an item, I do not make repairs or change the condition of the item from how I find it. I leave any restoration or modifications up to the new owner. I do try to accurately describe the condition of the item, but please realize they are being sold AS IS, so please review the pictures closely.
