Excellent transaction. Fast shipping. Thank you.
My love of antiques and vintage items began as a child, as I explored my grandparents' home and the attic! Lovely vintage china, still used and cherished, trunks filled with hand sewn quilts, old-fashioned hats and clothing, photographs and tintypes of long deceased family, my father's school papers... My stepmother was an antiques dealer and loved to go "junking" and I happily accompanied her.
Nowadays, I am accompanied by my younger daughter and husband as we poke through thrift stores, garage sales, and consignment shops, looking for treasures to include in our personal home decor and to pass along to you. I especially love vintage china patterns and anything ironstone. My ironstone and cream platter collection is bursting at the seams!
When I find an item to offer in my store, I spend a lot of time researching its origins so that I may provide you, the buyer, with as much information as possible ~ including the pattern name, who made it, and when. I try to be as thorough as possible, but many times I simply cannot find all information I would like to know about an item and when that occurs, I will tell you!
Please, stop by for a visit and make yourselves at home!
I'm Lauralee ~ wife to Jeff (32 years), mother of Katie and Christa, Oma (grandmother) to Hayden, Hannah, & Harrison. I live "way down south in the land of cotton". I love to collect treasures from the past, most especially ironstone and pottery!
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
- Money Order
- Other Method
I will also accept your personal check or money order (will wait 10 days to clear the bank before shipping).
For U.S. shipping, I will try to use the least expensive method available, usually USPS or USPS Priority Mail. Delivery confirmation is provided. Priority Mail insures items up to $50 at no additional charge. If you need additional insurance, please convo me.
I pack all items very carefully and use lots of bubble wrap! I want to make sure you receive your purchase in the same condition it was in when I packed it so I am generous with packing materials.
Your order will ship within 48 hours of payment. Please convo me if you would prefer to upgrade to priority mail or if you wish to purchase insurance.
International orders are shipped via USPS First Class International Mail (which does not include insurance or tracking), unless an item is too large or too heavy (more than 4 pounds) in which case it must ship Priority or international Parcel Post, according to USPS regulations. Sometimes packages are delayed by customs. Any customs fees/tariffs imposed are the responsibility of the buyer.
Please verify that your Paypal address and Etsy address are the same. If they are not, I will need to confirm your shipping address via email. This might delay shipment of your purchase.
