Welcome to Back Home Again

My journey on Etsy started in 2007, when Etsy was the “new kid on the block”. I originally designed and made tote bags made from vintage fabric and table cloths, occasionally selling unique vintage finds. These days my health doesn’t allow me to spend hours cutting and sewing so my focus is vintage clothing and home goods.

What I love most about selling on Etsy is matching a vintage item with the perfect partner. Knowing that my customer has found the item and feels the same excitement for it that I did when I found it. In essence, it’s about bringing things Back Home Again!

We are a small business, not Amazon, so we don’t offer free shipping. It’s impossible to accurately calculate shipping, especially when you order multiple items.

For the most part we ship USPS with delivery confirmation. For larger or heavier items, we ship Fed Ex Ground. We are currently shipping on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. If for some reason we are unable to ship on these days, I'll be sure to let you know.

Got any other shipping questions, just message me!
Additional policies and FAQs
We all want to do what we can for mother earth and buying vintage is a great place to start. However, one of the challenges we have is making our shipping as eco-friendly as possible.

We’ve created a GREEN shop and shipping strategy based on reduce, reuse, recycle.

>>>The vast majority of the time we reuse packing materials. This includes shipping boxes, shredded paper, mailers and bubble wrap. I am constantly searching for shipping supplies to reuse.

>>>You’ll find a packing slip with your packaged item. The paper we use to print your packing slip is 100% recycled from food and beverage containers.

>>>We currently use biodegradable peanuts for fragile items. They are made from starch-based, annually renewable resources, disintegrate in water and leave no harmful residue.

>>>Natural cleaning products are used for fragile hard goods as well as clothing. Vinegar, baking soda and lemon are my “go to” for cleaning. Vintage clothes are laundered and hung on the line to dry.

>>>Etsy is the first major online shopping destination to offset 100% of carbon emissions from shipping. For more information go here….
