About

Vintage. Retro. Antique. Old Stuff.

Whatever you want to call it, I hate to see things go to waste, especially old things. Everything had value to someone at some time. Items are not made or purchased for no reason now and they weren't then, either. We often fail to appreciate what was in favor of what is.

So I consider it my duty to salvage treasures, bring them back from the brink of extinction and make them available to others who will continue to love and treasure them for years to come. Well, it's either that or become a hoarder. Not Good.

I'm carrying on a tradition started by my Vermont Yankee grandfather and continued by my Swamp Yankee dad. What can I say? It's in the blood.

Shipping
This shop ships via USPS first class, priority, standard post or media mail - whatever is least expensive for the weight, size and type of item. (Media Mail, for example, can only be used for media materials like books or records. Standard Post is used for larger, heavier items.) We try to keep our shipping costs as low as possible and costs are estimated based on the weight and size of the item as well as the packaging materials. Items are shipped within three business days.

A little about USPS shipping (added January 8, 2015)

The USPS does NOT automatically insure First Class Mail. Many items from this shop are sent via First Class Mail - things such as postcards, advertising pamphlets, and recipe booklets. Generally anything that weighs less than 12 ounces and fits in a flat envelope. It is less expensive to send these items via First Class rather than Priority or Media Mail.

Insurance can be added to First Class mailings for an additional fee. Please notify the shop if you'd like insurance or signature confirmation added.

The USPS does not automatically insure items sent via Media Mail either. Please notify the shop if you'd like insurance or a signature confirmation added.

The USPS DOES automatically insure items sent via Priority Mail up to $100. Insurance can be added if an item is valued for over $100. There is an extra fee for a signature confirmation.

As a general rule, items sent to their destination via the United States Postal Service get there in the end. Sometimes we have to be patient if an items was sent via Parcel Post - it costs less to send a Parcel, but it takes forever. Sometimes packages don't arrive at all. We are not responsible for the items that don't get to their destination and we do not provide refunds for items that are lost or damaged unless they are insured.

Example of comparison of shipping costs:

Large or bulky envelope (padded envelope) weighing 8 ounces - classified as First Class Mail Parcel: $3.22
Large or bulky envelope (padded envelope) weighing 8 ounces - classified as Media Maii: $2.69
Refunds and Exchanges
We do not accept refunds or exchanges. Please read all descriptions carefully and ask questions about the item before purchasing.
