If you live outside the United States and would like to make a purchase please contact me with your address and I can calculate shipping costs for you by weight. It may take up to a week to mail packages as I live a distance from the nearest post office and usually ship once or twice a week when I go to town.

I also enjoy a good deal. If you see something you like make an offer. I can occasionally be talked down. Once in a while I put stuff on sale and even if you find my prices too much, book mark things you like. Check back occasionally.

I love great deals and unique finds. My favorite part is the research behind them. Occasionally I find little histories and stories with them, and these I include with the pieces. If you have info on my items and would like to share or correct me please do. I love the info, but sometimes don’t have all the answers. I have a bad habit of shopping thrift and antique stores and coming home with loads of stuff that is just retro and vintage yummy but frankly not the things that go with my 1920’s style house. (My husband remodels historical homes and that’s the happy compromise for ours.) Thus he is very happy that I have an outlet to support my obsession. I am more than thrilled to share my finds with new happy homes. I am always finding more old and unique items so please check back with me. My husband thanks you!

Old vintage clothing sizes do not always reflect the United States Standard clothing sizes which have gone smaller to reflect the larger expanding population. For vintage clothing I calculated the sizes of article laying flat as follows and then compare sizes to the US standard clothing charts here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/US_standard_clothing_size#Conversion_from_catalog_sizes

Bust= arm pit seem to arm pit seem across chest multiplied by 2
Waist= half way down shirt from side to side multiplied by 2
Waist of pants= laid flat side to side multiplied by 2
Hips= bottom of shirt side to side multiplied by 2
Length= arm pit seem to bottom of article of clothing (unless otherwise stated)
Length (of pants)= waist to edge of cuff
Sleeve= arm pit seem to edge of cuff or sleeve
Shoulder= from sleeve seem to sleeve seem across collar bones, smaller number indicates from sleeve seem to collar seem
In seem= crotch seem down inside of leg to pant cuff

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
  • Check
Payment
I prefer Paypal, but will happily take money order and check as well. Items will be sent after your payment clears. If you need to pay at a later date simply let me know, no hurries. I also will reserve items. Let me know if you’re interested.
Shipping
I typically send parcel mail, first class if cheaper, and media mail for books. Sometimes this can take up to a week. That's the fun living in the remote country as a single mom working sometimes 11 hours straight. I try my best to send them in a timely fashion and should you need it mailed sooner please let me know. Parcel post usually takes an average of 6 to 9 days. On more expensive items or larger orders I add insurance which is covered in shipping costs. I have come to realize that calculating shipping is a science which I haven’t completely mastered. If your shipping costs exceed the actual shipping costs over a dollar I will refund the difference to you. If I don’t let me know. Please note that if your order does not arrive with in two weeks of ship date please check with your local postal provider. More than not orders are waiting for customers at the post office. If the post finds that they are unable to safely deliver your package they will hold it between 3 weeks and 1 month at which time it will be returned to me. If this should happen I will not be responsible for the cost of shipping or re-shipping your order. If your post does not have your package please let me know.

If you are an international customer please let me know so I can calculate your shipping fees separately. I am more than happy to ship through out the world but please realize that heavy items do cost a bit more and while I do have the option to ship for a lesser cost, that cost will not be covered under insurance. If you decided not to spend the cost for insured parcels and they are damaged or lost in the mail it is not my responsibility to cover the cost of the loss.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you've ordered an item and it is damaged or lost in the mail please let me know. Larger and more expensive orders are covered under insurance. If you are not happy with your order please contact me. I will do my best to make it right. Many of my items, due to vintage and one of a kind finds, can not be exchanged unless it is for a different, but similarly priced item. Please contact me for verification.
