This was a tremendous find for a Christmas present for my husband. It is in great shape and is exactly as described by the seller. It was packaged with extreme care as it was wrapped in tissue paper with a thank you note from the seller, before being placed in a box for delivery. As I just live in a neighboring state it arrived within three days of when I placed my order. The personal touch by this seller is evident. Thanks Rosemarie!

About

Happiness is gving previously loved items a new home for more years of loving use.

Welcome to my shop!

I love antique and vintage treasures. And it seems, the older I get, the more I love them. Little of my home décor and furnishings are new. I’m surrounded by seasoned antiques and well-loved items from yesteryear. A big reason I like older items is because things today just aren’t made like they used to be. Back then, pieces were crafted to last for years, or even for generations.

I also prefer more traditional furniture and décor. (Modern is not for me!) I love Queen Anne and Victorian styles in dark woods of mahogany and cherry with a simple color palette of navy and white. My home is decorated in a nautical style that is 1800s whaling captain meets Newport, Rhode Island, yacht club.

The transition from purchasing antiques and vintage treasures for myself and acquiring them for sale was rather serendipitous. My beau, an industrious yacht broker, expanded his entrepreneurial talents into the “Storage Wars” and estate sale arenas. (He’s a busy man!) When he started that second business, I thought it would be fun to attend estate auctions with him. After the first time, I was hooked.

I saw so many beautiful items that I knew someone else would love, as I did. Rather than see them destined for flea markets and garage sales – or worse, the trash! – I decided that these treasures couldn’t be cast aside. I had to give these previously loved items an opportunity to have a new home.

And thus, my Etsy shop was born. But what to name it? Well, after growing up near Newport, RI (a yachting mecca), and now living on the coast of South Carolina, I love all things nautical. My home exudes that passion, so I decided my shop’s name should, as well. I chose Anchor Line Vintage because it not only reflects my passion for the sea, but it also represents ties to the past – vintage items that anchor us to our history and those who came before us.

Because of this tie to the past, I try my best to create listings that include the history of the item – the country of origin, the manufacturer, what the piece was used for, or interesting trivia of the time period.

It is my pleasure to offer you the antique and vintage treasures that I find at auctions and estate sales in the Lowcountry of South Carolina. I am happy to know that through my shop, previously loved items are passed on to other families for more years of loving use.

Frequently asked questions

What if my purchase arrives damaged or is lost in transit?

I do my best to package all orders with appropriate foam, bubble wrap, packing peanuts, etc. Unfortunately, there are rare occasions when the post office delivers a damaged item.

Should your item arrive damaged, please save the item and all packaging and convo me with a picture of the damaged item attached.

For shipping to U.S. & Canadian addresses, insurance is included with USPS Priority Mail, or added for other forms of USPS shipping. (Exception is for Media Mail Rates. Please see product listing for the type of shipping used.) Insurance claims can be done online at USPS.COM, and I will assist you in any way I can in making your claim - whether for a damaged item or one that never arrived.
