Ebb and Flow

Our family has always enjoyed learning about vintage items and then collecting them. We opened an online store around 20 years ago. The internet connection was dial-up and I learned and wrote all the html to build the site. Our first digital camera only held 8 good pictures, and so getting the photos online was the most time consuming part of the online store. It was a lot of fun.
We had other jobs and other tasks over the years, but always in the back ground was the desire to work with the collectibles again. When the opportunity arose, we had a physical shop in a vintage flea market here in town. Meeting with the customers in person and making new friends was awesome!
Recently the flea market closed, and not wanting to close shop completely, we decided that Etsy was a good fit for our family. I enjoy crafting and would like more time for those activities than being a web master would afford. Having the Etsy platform there for that support allows me the time to get items in our shop and still be able to take care of my family.
So this is the latest in our collectibles adventure, it is all interesting and fun, please join us in preserving and enjoying a bit of the past~

Welcome to Thomas Family Collectibles~ We do our best to represent items for sale accurately. We do research thoroughly to the best of our ability. We have had both online stores and physical stores for collectibles on and off for more than twenty years and we bring all that we have learned to the table. The handmade items are made in my home which is smoke free but pet friendly. Feel free to ask questions, there are several locally oriented items that we will have in our shop. I feel that makes them interesting as they might not be as easy to come across elsewhere. We enjoy what we do, we hope you enjoy our shop~!
Recently it has come to my attention that the meaning of ex-library book or ex-school book may be different in other areas. So to clarify what that means to us: This would be a book that may have a different binding than was sold in retail outlets. Some special library bindings are mono-colored with a pattern. The name of the book is on the spine. The condition of these usually include ink stampings on the outside, inside (maybe in several places throughout the book) as well as perhaps on the page edges. (top or bottom) There would be a pocket for the check out card and the card may or may not be there. At times the stampings include an impression on the title page. There may be tape anywhere, especially along the spine to affix the shelving number for the book. The books are well used, especially the childrens books in that they might have fingerprints, small tears, smudges, torn pages and at times writing. We make every effort to list the condition of each book and being human at times miss something.
We use these terms in descending order of quality of condition: excellent, very good, good, acceptable and poor. The photos and description are to aid the buyer in deciding if the condition is acceptable for them to purchase, please make use of all the information available in the listings to you. Books are such a joy and we love spreading the joy of a new (to you) book to everyone~

Returns and exchange details
We do not give refunds because the items are well represented by detailed photographs and descriptive text. The homemade items are just that and the vintage items are generally used. Please be sure you want the items you purchase and understand what they are before payment and shipping. Read all descriptions, view all photos and review shop policies before purchase please.
If your item is damaged by the postal service the insurance included with the priority shipping should have been enough in amount to cover the items cost. If your item is damaged during handling by the USPS then you will need to take the packaging and the item to them for a claim with the tracking number I provide for you. This is their policy. On items that cost more than what Priority covers, we pay for the additional insurance ourselves.
We are following Etsy guidelines and accept payment options that Etsy will process through this platform.
All transactions must proceed through the Etsy platform.
Currently we are able to ship once every two (2) weeks. Feel free to ask when shipping will be happening next if you need an item quickly or for a special date. It does not take us 2 weeks to package items, rather we only are able to go to the post office once every 2 weeks, so your order may fall on any day during that 2 week time and may be shipped more quickly.
We are not responsible for items broken or damaged by the postal service. We will package carefully to the best of our ability any items to be shipped.
Any brokerage, taxes, duties, customs or receiving costs are your responsibility upon receipt. We accept no responsibility for such.
I do refund shipping and handling overages generally over a dollar when they are incurred during regular business interactions.
Additional policies and FAQs
Our policy regarding free shipping:
In our customer relations we try to offer best value.
We would rather have you pay the actual amount it costs to ship your vintage items to you.
If we did offer free shipping, an average including the farthest possible shipping point in the US from us has to be taken into consideration. Anyone living closer than half way is going to pay too much.
We would rather keep item cost low and be transparent with the shipping.
We appreciate your patronage and want to extend an honest service to you.
Thank You.
