About

Knick-Knacks, Bric-a-brac, and what-nots, OH MY!

We first started selling on eBay about 15 years ago but eventually found and fell in love with Etsy. We both LOVE to shop at garage sales, thrift stores, and antique stores but since we cannot practically keep everything we find (unless we wanted to appear on an episode of hoarders!) we decided it would be fun to open up shop and offer what we love to others who may love it as well.

Much of what you will find in our shop will take you back to your childhood or remind you of a special loved one as you squeal out in delight "Oh! I used to have one of those!" or "My grandma had that!". Or, If you are a quiet person you may just squeal these thoughts silently in your head! :o) No matter how you reminisce you will find all kinds of knick-knacks, bric-a-brac, and what-nots to help you do that here at The Vintage Dresser!

You may wonder where the name of our shop originated. It isn't just something we dreamed up, there actually is a vintage dresser than inspired it. When Nancy (the mom of our duo) was pregnant with Tania, she purchased an unfinished dresser for the nursery and painted it light green and antiqued it. That dresser has served us well. It went from Tania's nursery to her bedroom as she grew up. When she married and had a home and daughter of her own, the dresser went to live with them. Through all of Tania's various moves, the dresser has tagged along. She's used it in her nursery and later in her daughter's bedroom as she grew up. It's been used for storage in her craft room and now resides in her guest room. So, as you can see, The Vintage Dresser has special meaning for us!

Over the years we've sold our wares in many and varied craft shows, bazaars, consignment shops, gift shops, and on-line. But now that we've found Etsy, we feel we're at home. Whether we're creating hand painted and hand crafted items, or scouring the countryside for retro and vintage goodies, we love filling our shops with treasure for our customers to discover!

If it is required, we always include the amount in the total shipping specified for the item. Please let us know BEFORE YOU PAY if you want to add insurance and a revised total due will be sent.

We do combine shipping, please “convo” us for a shipping quote for multiple items or for a revised shipping amount for purchases already made.

We try to ship the next business day after receiving payment and will let you know if that is not possible.
