VintageShelfAndWall's Shop Announcement

VintageShelfAndWall offers functional, vintage pieces of art.
We specialize in bookends, lighting, clocks and wall pockets, for every decor and budget.

What is a wall pocket? It is a vase that hangs on the wall. They have been around since the turn of the 20th century and have held everything from important papers and matches, to flowers and feathers. They can be used for decoration only or they can hold pencils and craft tools.

Please remember that vintage equals used. I would never offer a piece for sale that I would not buy myself, but some will not be in perfect condition. I will address any imperfections in the description.

Shipping prices have been estimated. Please read my policies for more information.

International customers please contact me for a shipping price.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you will find something that will be useful for you, as well as lovely to look at.


I will accept Paypal as well as direct payment with credit card. I will also accept money orders, but the item will not be shipped until the money order clears my bank. I will notify you when the purchase has shipped.


Items will be shipped in 1 to 3 business days. I will notify you of any delay. Shipping price is for USPS priority for items weighing greater than 13 ounces, unless stated otherwise. Please contact me prior to purchase if you would prefer parcel post, which will cost less but take 5-7 days to receive. Because many items are fragile, all shipping charges will include insurance as well as delivery confirmation. Shipping charges have been estimated, not knowing the destination. Any charges in excess of two dollars will be refunded.

Each item is packaged with care. Sometimes clean, recycled packing materials will be used.

My shipping prices are based on weight and size of the item. I charge very little for shipping supplies. Shipping is expensive and I will not negotiate shipping prices.

If you purchase multiple items I will ship together if possible. If shipping is less than you were charged by at least two dollars, I will refund the overage after shipping.

If you use Paypal ALL ITEMS WILL BE SHIPPED TO THE ADDRESS ON THE PAYPAL INVOICE. If you need it shipped to another address, please let me know at time of purchase.

I will contact you via your email address with a tracking number the day the item is shipped.

I will ship internationally, contact me for a shipping quote. You will be responsible for paying any applicable customs fees, taxes or duties in your country. I will not be held responsible for any item held by customs. All shipments will be marked merchandise.

I will combine shipping on purchase of more than one item if possible. Weight over 4 pounds or dimension of box greater than 12 inches greatly increases price. Please contact me prior to purchase if you would like a shipping quote. Any shipping over $2.00USD will be refunded.

Refunds and Exchanges

I will accept returns if you contact me within 7 days of after delivery. I will refund the purchase price as soon as I recieve the item in the same condition it was sent in. The buyer is responsible for return postage, please use delivery confirmation.

Please notify me as soon as possible if item has arrived damaged. Even when packed with care accidents can happen, that is why I insure all packages. Proof of damage is required to file a claim with USPS or ShipSaver. Without proof of damage I will be unable to provide a refund.

Additional Policies and FAQs

Good communication and your satisfaction is important. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
