About

Old is New Again!

We're a wife-and-husband team who started out just trying to make some room in our stash of art and craft items only to discover that we loved providing other people with 'just what I was looking for'!

We will never misrepresent a new item as being vintage; the age, beauty and quality of older items is what we love, plus keeping functional vintage items in use keeps them out of landfills and cuts down on the need to waste resources producing new things!

Accepted payment methods

  • Money Order
Payment
We accept PayPal and money orders.
Payment through PayPal/indication that a money order will be sent is expected within 48 hours of a purchase unless we have been contacted prior to the sale for other arrangements. Money orders must be received within 7 days of purchase unless other arrangements have been made. If, after the stated time frame, there has been no payment/indication of payment to be sent or other communication, we reserve the right to cancel the purchase.


***If you wish us to reserve an item we'll be glad to do it, but please note that an item will be taken off reserve if a week has passed with no purchase and no communication from you that you wish us to continue the reserve.***
Shipping
All packages will be sent first-class with delivery confirmation (when possible); other shipping methods are available by request. Gift wrapping is available at no extra charge upon request. We usually ship Mondays and Thursdays but are always glad to make an exception!

Our shipping costs are based on the average estimate of shipping the items; if actual cost differs greatly, we will refund the overage. If a large quantity of items are ordered, we will work to find the best method at the best price for shipping.


Don't see your country? Let us know what you'd like and we'll get a shipping estimate for you!

**We regret that due to customs restrictions, we are unable to ship hats and other accessories, cards or photographs to Italy. All allowed items are shipped via Priority International Flat Rate only, which allows up to 4 pounds.**

To our international customers:
Any customs fees, taxes, tariffs, duties, or similar that may be incurred at the time of delivery would be at the discretion of your country's tax regulations. We have no way of calculating how much these fees would be, should they occur, and we cannot be responsible for those charges. For any additional information refer to your local customs agency. Returns will not be accepted due to customs fees.

***Due to an increase in customs fraud and VAT fraud, we no longer ship to the UK. Exceptions may be made for previous customers; please contact if you desire an exception.***


**We regretfully cannot ship certain items to any country where those items are prohibited (i.e. Italy) or to any country currently in a trade embargo with the United States.**
Refunds and Exchanges
Not happy? Then neither are we! Contact us and we'll see how we can fix things.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please note: Our shop is online 24-7, but we aren't! If you send us a message but don't hear back from us immediately, please don't worry; we do sometimes like to leave the house for groceries and such! We do check email at least once a day and will get back to you as soon as possible.

Our business is located in our home, which is the dwelling place of three marvellous cats, and absolutely no smoking is allowed. It's bad for our patterns and worse for our kitties! There are peanut products consumed regularly, so do keep that in mind if you or an intended gift recipient has an exceptionally strong peanut allergy.
