Not bad. Very nice colors and design. There was some moderate wear and tear on the vase. There was a sizeable crack on the paint near the bottom. I am rating this only fair. Rather disappointed.

Buyer did not read the description which clearly stated this had wear and was vintage, not new. He also did not look at the additional photos which showed the condition well. When contacted and asked to take a quick pic that showed any issues not described or photographed, he was unwilling or unable to do so.
In the begining...
I was just a collector. I hunted down and stalked Asian design pieces that I had to have. I couldn't resist a good deal on vintage Chinese or Japanese items. I filled my house with travel mementos and finds. Friends and family picked up on my interest and would also bring me fun things that they spotted for me.
And then Julian & Jane were born... Kids and antiques are not a match made in heaven. Stuff got broken- there were tears all around! There was also trying to find room for all the baby gear and then toys. That initiated the thought that I was done amassing and needed to slim down my collection.
The Richarmed Life has enabled me to share my collection with the world. I've shipped from Iceland to New Zealand and everywhere in between! It's been fun to still be able to snatch up terrific vintage finds and have them find homes with people who also see their beauty and value. Right now many of my listings are family items- the past year has seen us closing and remodeling the homes of several grandparents!
I'm a Florida girl. I love traveling the world. I enjoy finding treasures when I'm abroad. I'm a collector at home too. My house is completely decked out Chinoiserie-style! I design and sell jewelry for a living. Check it out at RIcharme.Etsy.com!
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
- Money Order
If you want an item but can't pay right then, please contact me. I am happy to reserve items. I will reserve an item for up to a week. If there is a situation where you need longer, please convo me and let me know and I will consider extending the reserve.
Once an item has shipped, I cannot cancel an order.
I do ship international- please contact me with your exact country and I may be able to lower the shipping cost. US buyers, I ship from Clearwater, Florida so if you are nearby, let me know and it might be a lower rate.
Lastly, due to the jump in the USPS's breakage rate in the last few months, insurance is automatically added to the shipping cost. You do have the option of opting out and saving maybe a dollar or two, but I do not advise this as I do not accept returns and shipping costs are non-refundable.
Refunds and Exchanges
I cannot refund shipping. If an item is lost or damaged in the mail, please use the tracking info to make a claim with the USPS. Remember, insurance is included in the shipping cost. Once an order has left my hands, I am not responsible for it.
Additional policies and FAQs
As with most vintage items, some wear is normal. I do take good photos and mention condition issues. As a rule, I do not clean my items as some would be considered damaged if the natural "patina" is disturbed. It's up to you how sparkly you want to make your vintage find, but I do always mention if an item could use a scrub.
