The Path Less Traveled.

Five years ago, I ran into a bump in the road. Okay, it was a wall. I lost a long time job and was diagnosed with cancer. A friend, the "best" kind, pointed me towards Etsy and I have worked hard to not look back.
The core of my shop is giving life to abandoned and forgotten vintage finds and furniture. My husband, sons and daughter all help me with the shop. I will paint anything that stands still. We work with customers to paint vintage finds into their own custom designs.
We also create some simple, vintage and modern designed furniture and art. My favorite are sculptures of found natural objects and modern collages from literature and photos. I also incorporate my own photography into some of our decoupage projects.
My husband, Josh, sometimes creates tables, stools and benches as well as recycles sporting goods items like skateboards or boogie boards into new home decor. You will occasionally see skateboard coat racks or clocks made from a boogie board and more.
Our shop is a living thing that is evolving, changing with the seasons, our creativity, and the vintage discoveries we uncover.

Don't miss our son's Etsy shop for exceptional mens vintage fashion and gifts:

At The Velvet Branch, we don't just love vintage, we pay homage to it. There is a grandness to items so well built that they have lasted decades and stand the test of time to serve decades more. We don't remove all traces of age from our vintage items; that would be criminal in our minds. The reflections of age are preserved and sometimes enhanced in our shop. Of course, we sand wood to eliminate worries of splinters, we use the best of supplies and materials and we take great care in their application as well but you won't find our items to be perfect. In our hearts of hearts, we just want to bring a bit of American history to your home and possibly update it with a new color paint, upholstery or such but.... we are leaving the vintage in. Love it.

Once you have contacted us with your desired purchase, we will seek out the best and most cost effective way to ship your item. A number of our pieces are large and potentially heavy and we do offer free local shipping to the North Carolina Triad and Triangle areas.
Greyhound offers affordable shipping of heavy items if you don't mind picking them up at your local station. Another plus is that the bus station is open late when other places are closed and they often have a dolly for use.
Let's talk!
Our responsibility ceases after merchandises are delivered to the transportation company. Many of our items are one of a kind, custom painted and vintage finds.
If merchandise damage during shipping is a concern, The Velvet Branch recommends shipping insurance for all orders. Insurance cost varies upon weight and value of each merchandise, please convo us for the insurance cost.
International orders: these must be insured and Customs clearance needs to be taken into account for shipping time.
Refunds and Exchanges
In the unfortunate event that any item needs to be returned or exchanged, we will need to be contacted within three days of delivery to make arrangements.
it will be the buyers responsibility to cover both shipping and return shipping costs. Custom items may not be returned or exchanged. NO linens are returnable due to general sanitation standards. We will make all efforts to ensure satisfaction to our customers.
We hope you understand that fragile and breakable items will not be eligible for return as we can not ensure their safe arrival on return since we are not able to repackage them ourselves nor oversee it to be done properly. Therefore, we can not be responsible nor risk their shipping.
Additional policies and FAQs
We are hunters and gatherers of items with history and potential. If you are looking for that special something and need help, contact us. We may be able to help you. We would love to be of service to you.
