My Dad started taking me to garage sales and estate sales when I was 4 years old. He instilled a love of "lost" things in me. Finding a gem in an unexpected place makes me smile!

About

But I want it NOW!

I have always been an old soul. Since I was a little girl, I have preferred old to new; while my friends brushed their Barbies' hair, I carried an old metal lunchbox around full of my rock collection. My Dad instilled a love of vintage and antiques in me. He would tell me stories about his time in the US Army and being in his 20's during the 1950's (my favorite era). I can remember many a night that my Dad would push aside our diningroom table, put a Glen Miller record on and show me how to swing dance.

I opened Veruca's Vintage with hopes of one day opening a brick and mortar location. I love vintage and antiques, and in opening my etsy shop, I am able to treasure hunt, use my creativity and get to know people who appreciate all of those same things. I truly believe I have finally figured out what I'm supposed to do for the rest of my life.

I am lucky to have a wonderful family that supports me in my creativity and etsy endeavors. My Mom is my best friend in the world and I have two wonderful, big sisters. My oldest sister Patti has been my partner in crime for two years running at the World's Longest Yard Sale.

I am married, with a darling daughter named Ashlyn, who has started calling herself a "collector" and loves junking and curb surfing with her Mama. In addition to buying and selling for Veruca's Vintage, I also repurpose, upcycle, and do all kinds of crafty things. I also love to decoupage and give sad, broken vintage furniture a new look.

International buyers are responsible for any customs or duty fees that may apply.
Shipping
My shipping charges are actual. I do not charge a handling fee and use recycled shipping supplies whenever possible.

I am currently working on transitioning my listings to the calculated method. For those that I haven't transitioned, shipping is based on an educated estimate via calculating shipping from my zip code to a zip code on the west coast (92101). On these listings, I ship via the most cost effective method.

Any overages in actual cost versus estimate over $1.00 will be refunded in a timely manner. I am totally willing to combine shipping, convo me before you place your order, and I will adjust shipping on items accordingly!

Calculated shipping doesn't always get it right. If your shipping quote seems unusually high, please send me a message. I am more than happy to look into it.

If you would like overnight shipping or expedited shipping via fedex, (at buyer's cost) please shoot me a message before your purchase so that I'm able to adjust shipping costs on the listing accordingly.

Items will ship no later than 5 business days after payment is received. Please convo me if there is a need to receive your shipment quickly, and I will do my very best to accomodate you.

For international shipping rates, please convo me for a quote!
Refunds and Exchanges
Please keep in mind that you are purchasing vintage items that each have their own unique previous lives. These lives include aquired bumps, dents, rust, nicks, scratches and sometimes smells. I do my absolute very best to disclose all of these things in my listings. If you are unsure of anything or have a question regarding a listing, please convo me before purchasing. I am more than happy to answer any questions you may have, and/or provide additional photos.

I will accept returns ONLY if an item is broken during the shipping process, or if you feel that the item was GROSSLY misrepresented.

All items are sold "As is".
Additional policies and FAQs
Your feedback is greatly appreciated! If you are dissatisfied in any way once you've received your purchase, please contact me before leaving your feedback. As a shop owner, I truly want you to be fully satisfied and content with your purchase.
