*PLEASE READ* When I decided on my item from this shop PayPal had just ceased doing business with this country. In all honesty I was very hesitant in paying in another fashion. I decided to go ahead with sending funds via Western Union. It was very simple to do straight from my phone. Yes, there is a slight fee to buyer, but I have to say that it was well worth it!! Burak was awesome in staying in contact with me from before purchase all the way through my item arriving. My item was securely shipped, and I received it sooner than expected. I would not hesitate to order from this shop again. Thank you Burak for a wonderful Etsy experience!

Welcome to my little museum of wonders! I live in Istanbul and I am a long time treasure hunter. I hope the vintage items offered here inspire fond memories, pleasant surprises and a unique experience. I will do my best to make you a happy and proud new owner of my items.

PAYPAL is unavailable as a payment method. If you would like to order, please contact me first to discuss alternative payment methods.

I will ship to the registered address on Etsy.

I can reserve items for you if you wish.

New to Etsy? Here's a helpful guide to making your first purchase:
I use registered mail for shipping and purchase a barcode which will provide basic tracking as well as online viewable delivery confirmation. This is a very safe method for international shipping at a reasonable charge. Most national shippers provide real time tracking at their websites once they accept the mail piece.

I'll ship within two business days of cleared payment. Mail pieces leave the country in 3-5 days so the speed of shipping largely depends on the traffic and customs work at the receiving end. It usually takes BETWEEN 2-4 WEEKS FOR DELIVERY to most locations.

Delivery estimates for specific countries based on my observations of tracking:
USA: 2-4 weeks
Canada: 15-20 days
Australia: 15-20 days
UK and Europe: 10-20 days

I combine shipping whenever I can and most of my items have very low "with another item" shipping prices (for some items zero). I don't try to cover shipping costs for multiple purchases and this is my way of offering discounts, as I get to share shipping expenses when several items are purchased.

The post office uses calculated shipping based only on weight and does not have flat rates for mail. The maximum weight allowed for boxes in registered mail is 4 lbs/2 kg, after which I would need to use parcel post which uses flat rates (that vary according to destination). Charges for regular mail increase gradually with each 1/3 oz and jump up with each pound. Also, shapes of the items determine the size and weight of the packing material and boxes.

Very large or heavy items might not have lower "with another item" prices set. In case you buy several such items and the actual shipping price exceeds what you have paid, I will reimburse you the relevant amount with a Paypal refund.

Generally, post offices HOLD registered mail if their first delivery attempt is a failure. Then you might need to either schedule redelivery by phone and through their webpage or go to the post office to PICK UP the mail personally by SIGNING.

Registered mail is very safe but it is not fast. EXPEDITED SHIPPING IS AVAILABLE. This is a fast and efficient service of the national carrier with a delivery estimate of 2-5 days. Please contact me for quotes. Its prices are high but still costs considerably less than what companies like DHL and FEDEX would charge. This service offers detailed real-time tracking and signature confirmation upon delivery. By the way, I really appreciate buyers who read item descriptions and shop policies . Especially those who read everything and ask questions before purchase. Obviously you are one of them so here is a little thank you, please enter "reader" coupon code at checkout for 5% off. Thanks for reading!

Refunds and Exchanges
Whatever shipping method I use, I buy all the available security options and pack my items safely. That said, I do ACCEPT RETURNS, for any reason, within 2 months of purchase. Buyer is to return the item in original condition (buyer pays for return shipping) for the full refund of purchase plus original payment for shipping. I would issue the refund via Paypal as soon as I receive the item. I recommend purchasing delivery confirmation for return shipping.

The item in the pictures is of the item that you will receive and would have the imperfections of an handmade and vintage/antique object. These items have withstood time but may have some or considerable flaws consistent with age and due to use. I do my best to describe them accurately but please take a closer look at photos and ask me anything you like to make sure you are really informed about the item. I would be happy to provide additional photos of items.

Please note that any applicable CUSTOMS DUTIES and taxes are the responsibility of the buyer.
Additional policies and FAQs
You can ask me for a specific metal collectible or decorative object that you are looking for. I might have something similar and if not would be happy to look out for it.

I will gladly GIFT WRAP your items at NO extra charge, just let me know. I can also include a message and postcard addressed to the recipient.

For packaging I usually use used material and the items for sale typically have had at least one previous owner. For these reasons I can't quarantee they would be pet or smoke free.
