Announcement   Notice: If you are an international buyer, please read my policies regarding shipping. I do ship international.

This is my store to liquidate my life's collection of antiques and collectibles. While I have enjoyed these things for years and years, it is time to downsize and find them a new protector. Most of these things have been around since before I was born and they will be around for long after some of us are gone if they are properly cared for.

In January of 2013, my father passed away. As the only lawyer in the family, I am also his court appointed personal representative and have included many items from his home as well as his mother's home. Grandma died in 2001 and as her only child, he inherited her home and estate but was unable to do anything with it so it sat just as she left it until his passing this year and my brother, five sisters and I began the process of sorting through and processing both estates. You will find many things in this store from those estates as well.

Take a few moments to look around and if you see something you are interested in and have questions, please contact me. I welcome any type of discussion.

I also have an etsy shop Jean A. Wells Handcrafted Artisan Jewelry. Be sure to check it out as well at http://www.jeanawells.etsy.com.

Also, I want you to know that my home has always been a non-smoking home, as was Dad's and Grandma's, but I do have dogs and they make their presence known on just about everything here.

A word about shipping. I opened this store on November 15, 2012, and since then, the post office has had one increase in postal rates - they continue to rise and in some cases drastically. International shipping rates are all over the place and while I am happy to ship international, it will be necessary that you contact me first so that I can determine the shipping charge to your country and adjust the listing accordingly. I do not like paying shipping charges and just assume that no one else does either, but they are a necessary part of on-line shopping. I will always ship the best way to save the most money or as you request. I will combine shipping whenever possible to save money as well.

Please note that the shipping charges provided do not include insurance. If you want insurance, send me a message and I will the cost of the shipping to include shipping insurance. Otherwise, I cannot be responsible for its condition once it leaves my hands. I can assure you that everything is as I represent it when shipped but I will not be responsible for damage incurred during shipping. If you have questions, let me know.

About

Here you will find my life's accumulation of antiques and collectibles. It is time to find them a new home.

I have decided to down size my possessions in a big way. I have always enjoyed my collectibles, but it is time to find them a new home. You will find a wide, wide range of items here. I have major collections of marbles, carnival glass, opalescent glass, jadite, other glass, and lots and lots of miscellaneous to be liquidated.

I welcome questions, comments, and just plain old fun conversation.

Take a look around and I hope you find something that will be a blessing to you.

    Welcome to my vintage shop. Here I will be liquidating a life's worth of antiques, collectibles and curiosities. I am nearing retirement and need to down size so that I can make some big, big changes in my life. I hope you find something great.

Shipping
I DO SHIP INTERNATIONAL; however, you will need to contact me so that I can calculate the correct postage to your country.

Also, please be aware that Etsy is running a test that effectively hides the shipping costs until you put the item in your cart. It is ridiculous, the sellers don't like it, but we had nothing to say in the matter. I am working as quickly as I can to hand type the shipping rates into the description of each item, but it will take me some time. In the meantime, please either 1) put the item in your cart where the shipping will be revealed or contact me through Etsy messaging and I will let you know what the rates are. Be aware though that if you decide to remove the item from your cart, you will not be directed back to my shop but rather to the Etsy home page. I sincerely apologize for this inconvenience, but again, I had nothing to say about it. Hopefully, etsy will figure out it is not working for buyers or sellers and stop it soon.

Shipping quotes provided in the listings are WITHOUT insurance. If you want insurance, contact me prior to purchase and I will add it to the shipping costs. If you do not request insurance and the item is damaged or lost during shipping, I cannot be responsible for its loss.

I use recycled and repurposed shipping supplies including bubble wrap, packing peanuts, boxes, padded envelopes, etc.

International customers: Contact me prior to purchase and I will determine the cost of shipping to your country, revise the listing and reserve it for your purchase.

I am HAPPY to combine shipping. My items are not uniform in size, shape, weight, or anything else, so it is virtually impossible for me to publish combined shipping. If you are interested in more than one item, PLEASE contact me prior to purchase and I will determine the combined shipping costs, revise the listings and reserve them for your purchase.
