About

The House of Kitsch Lives On

Ever since my mother started to drag me around from garage sales and flea markets, as a small child, I developed a fascination with antique and vintage treasures. Now I see myself as an urban archaeologist. My passion is saving really cool vintage items from disappearing into the local landfills, due to being mishandled by thrift stores, or thrown away by people who don't have an appreciation for what I perceive to be valuable artifacts. However, I don''t have the space to keep everything I love....but I do have the pleasure of finding new homes for old treasures.

Dollymae's House of Kitsch is a subsidiary of my company, Daggerdoll Productions.
I run a multifaceted organization that combines all of my passions under one umbrella name brand- Fine Art Photography, Vintage Ephemera Reproduction Art, Shabby Chic Upcycles, and Vintage Goodies Resale. You will find variations of "Daggerdoll Productions," in one format or another, here and there on the world wide web, and at local craft shows.

My goal is to enable buyers to purchase fun items and artwork, while at the same time, assuring you that we are making the world a better place by saving treasures from the landfill, providing eco-friendly artwork, and adhering to "Green" policies in all aspects of Daggerdoll Productions.

Welcome- here at House of Kitsch my goal is to enable buyers to purchase fun collectibles & antique items, while at the same time, making the world a better place by saving treasures from the landfill. I would also like to point out that I keep my shop as "Green" as possible by using recycled supplies for shipping & packing.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Happy shopping!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
All sales are final, unless an item has been grossly misrepresented. Integrity is very important to me. With every listing I provide accurate pictures and descriptions along with disclosure of any imperfections or damage to the best of my knowledge. Please read through listings carefully as I want you to be fully aware and satisfied with your purchase. Please keep in mind when buying vintage that most of my items are 40 years old or even greater than that. These items have been pre-owned, and are bound to have minor issues. I never sell anything that is broken or obviously damaged. I describe every flaw after a thorough inspection, under the best lighting conditions, and sometimes with a magnifying glass.

Although I pack with extreme caution & care, accidents can happen. I am not responsible for whatever USPS does during transit & delivery. However, I feel it is my responsibility to assist you in handling a claim with USPS. If your item is damaged or lost while in transit, it is up to you, the buyer, to initiate the claim process with the USPS. It will also be up to you to provide all information, packing materials and damaged goods including photos for me, the seller, and your local post office. There are no guarantees on a favorable outcome. But I have been successful in the past at helping my customers sort out their problems with USPS.

In the unlikely event that a buyer is extremely unhappy with a purchase, and does insist on a refund, I will do everything possible to achieve a positive resolution. However the buyer is responsible for return shipping costs, and will not be refunded until the item has been received by me (the seller) in the original condition when purchased by the buyer / customer. I never want any of my customers to experience a negative experience at House of Kitsch. Please keep all lines of communication open, no matter what the problem or issue. I am happy to receive your convos-before, during, and anytime after all transactions.
Payment
I accept Paypal, and all major credit cards through Etsy direct checkout. I also accept Etsy Gift Cards.

Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
Shipping
Processing time: 1-3 business days

Estimated shipping times: Actual delivery time will depend on the shipping method you choose.

International Customers: Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. I'm not responsible for delays due to customs. And please keep in mind that tracking for items shipped outside the USA is unavailable.

I always ship with USPS. It is the most affordable for you the customer.
Because a great deal of my items are of a fragile nature, I use a lot of packing material, & that increases the weight of the package. Please take this into consideration when you look at individual shipping charges. My mission statement is to keep the world green. So therefore, all of my packing materials are recycled. Your package might not look perfect on the outside, but I ALWAYS do my utmost to safely pack your item in as secure a manner as possible.

I include free insurance on all items with a value over $50. If you desire to purchase insurance on lesser priced items, please let me know before purchasing and I will accommodate your needs, by reserving the listing for you, and adjusting the shipping price to include insurance.

In keeping with my shop's GREEN policy, I do NOT include packing slips. Please send me a note during the checkout process, should you require a packing slip.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you are looking for one of my items, or if you complete a transaction, and receive a message that "Item Is Unavailable" please contact me immediately. I will then double check my inventory to make sure that what you are shopping for is IN STOCK and AVAILABLE.

I am a proud member of the following teams: Vintage Explosion, Etsy Pickers & Sellers, and Vintage Lovers - with a guarantee that all the items in my store are TRUE VINTAGE, and of the highest integrity.

All of my items are thoroughly researched and described as accurately as possible. I take great pride in giving full disclosure, either good or bad, in my item descriptions. I provide the best photos I am capable of taking, and make sure to give you great close ups, especially if there is a flaw that I am pointing out. All vintage items are OLD, so there will be flaws, and it is to be expected. Sometimes that is part of the charm of a vintage piece. But I do not believe in passing off any treasure, no matter how beautiful, if it is broken, cracked, or damaged. Buy with great confidence at House of Kitsch. And if you ever have any questions, I am happy to receive your convos.
