Announcement   SHOP UPDATE- 4/20/17- We have added a TON of new Mantiques to our inventory, and will be listing them in over the next 2 weeks or so! Fathers day is right around the corner, and these items will be PERFECT!!!

Update 1/7/17- Just re-opened the shop after a very long hiatus. I was injured last year in a terrible accident, and had a rash of "not ships". I assure you, it was merely due to physically NOT being able to ship the items, and I apologize for any stress, or distress this caused ANYONE! I am sorry for this. It has never been a problem in the past, and will not be in the future! That being said....

I really enjoy hunting down rusty gold, farm fresh rarities, and retro nostalgia. I do fill want lists, and go out of my way to bring vintage & antique treasures back to market. I am very internet savvy, a good communicator, and care about making this a very serious business. I try to focus on NOS (new old stock), and go out of my way to clean items and point out any known flaws. I am a very honest person and run my business as such. When possible, I will even include HISTORIES at the bottom of my listings, so you will know even more about your purchase! I pack things very well, and will answer questions through CONVO'S with both customers, and other shop owners! I have over 16 years of knowledge, and when I don't know the answer...I try to reach out to people within my "sphere of influence" to help me.

Please come back often, as I have over 1000 items to add to the shoppe.

Have a great day, and thanks for stopping!

About

Self Prescribed Doctor of Vintology! THE Vintologist takes the SouthWest by storm!

Listen, I was a "PICKER" before "PICKING" was made sex by the TV SHOW!! LOL~ I love climbing through old barns, attics, basements, garages, storage units, etc..and combing flea markets, thrift stores, estates sales, etc...JUST TO FIND that perfect trreasure hidden behind something, buried beneath something, etc..and BRINGING IT DIRECTLY TO YOU, OR DIRECTLY BACK TO MARKET!!! I love finding forever homes for long forgotten pieces of art!!

After 20 years + in the banking industry, and after working at an auction barn for a while as well, I thought "pickin" sounded ALOT MORE FUN! 10 years later I'm still going strong! Even before I opened my shop, I would buy and sell on a competitors site, but never found it to have the reputation that ETSY does! Most of the people here on ETSY have a vast knowledge of what they are selling, and more importantly HOW TO SELL! I not only enjoy the "HUNT" for items, but also enjoy the interaction with both the customers, and the other ETSY sellers! What got me started was going to a VIDEO GAME AUCTION at the fairgrounds in Davenport Iowa....bought 3 machines, sold two for a 400% profit, and I was off an flying! However, you have to have "THE EYE" and without it, and either a MENTOR, or training, you are just not able to make a profit...and let's face it, in some ways, that is what we are here for! Need to keep the lights on! :)

I do EXTENSIVE RESEARCH on each item I sell, and even try to post histories, or additional information at the bottom of each of my listings! I encourage my customers to send me "want lists", as well as sending me an email prior to purchase, with ANY QUESTIONS about my item that I missed in the listing. I am in this for the long haul, and want nothing more than to make my customers very happy! I have even recently started repurposing cool stuff, and hope to open a handmade shoppe within the next year! I already have a seperate shop just for Holiday/Xmas stuff called retroholiday.etsy.com Thanks for checking me out, and please follow me, as I have 1000's of items to list!

Best Always- Vintologist a TRUE AMERICAN PICKER!

Hi there and thank you for shopping with us. Typically we ship out each week on Saturdays with a Thursday cutoff. HOWEVER, we will always do what we can to underpromise and over deliver!! If you have a specific need for it to go out more quickly such as a birthday, holiday, or wedding gift..... Please please please convo us to let us know. You can also utilize the "notes to seller" section on your ETSY invoice. Please do not email us through paypal as this will only slow down the process.

Thanks again-

Our main shipping methods include FEDEX Ground, and the USPS Priority Mail. FEDEX includes tracking, delivery confirmation and insurance up to $100.00. Anything over that, requires additional shipping charges. USPS Priority Mail includes tracking and delivery confirmation but does NOT include insurance unless specified by the buyer prior to purchase. If done AFTER purchase, we will be happy to accomodate you through re-invoicing you for the difference in the shipping cost! We will consider other shipping methods on a case by case basis.

Yes, we do love our international friends and will ship world wide, with the exception of the Phillipines. Please convo us your postal code for exact shipping costs!

Will also meet you for local pickup if that helps in any way! AS LONG as it is paid in full, and through ETSY. We do not accept cash on local deliveries.


Thank you very much! Vintologist

Refunds and Exchanges
We are sorry but due to the very nature of selling vintage items, we do not accept returns, nor issue refunds. If it has NOT been shipped yet, I will consider refunding on a case by case basis. We go out of our way to measure, and fully describe the item. Buyers remorse is not a reason for refund! Im sorry, but one you buy, it takes the item off the market, and we potentially cold have lost another sale! Lastly, If you want the item insured, please let me know, and I will compensate if necessary within the shipping costs! Tracking is always included, and when shipping with FEDEX, insurance is provided up to $100.00 value.
Additional policies and FAQs
We do fill want lists, and DO LOCATE items, with the predetermined understanding that once found, and once it falls within the parameters set forth, that you DO agree to purchase the item! Because I am a picker of 10 + years, I can find almost....anything!

Any questions, PLEASE CONVO US!!! Thanks so much! D
