About CarolinaVintageCo

Sales 3,087
On Etsy since 2009

Lovingly worn out and beautifully tattered.

I don't like shiny. I don't like new. I don't like the latest cheap trend, and I don't go for fads.
I believe in saving and treasuring old things, even when they're past their "glory days", because as John Keats said - "A thing of beauty is a joy forever".

Every item in the shop is crafted from vintage, reclaimed, & salvaged materials, and a constantly evolving collection of whatever I happen to have found and rescued on my "junking" journey: shabby, Southern, funky, charming, lovingly worn out, beautifully tattered, & timeless... coming to you from "God's Country" - the rural countryside of my home state, North Carolina, and my current stomping grounds in rural Southside Virginia.

Y'all come back now, 'hear?

Returns and exchange details
If you receive your item and it is significantly not as described, or has become damaged in transit, and you wish to return it, please convo me right away to discuss a solution: returns, exchanges, partial refunds, etc.

Your business is important to me, and I strive to provide a quality product, both vintage or handmade. Therefore, I will do all I can to ensure that all items are properly photographed and described. Please make sure of all measurements, etc. before final purchase! This is very important for buying vintage clothing and accessories such as hats, and shoes. Vintage items are not sized by modern standards! Please make sure you read the entire listing before purchase so you are 100% certain what it is you are buying.

The handmade items in my shop are created from vintage materials, so they will have an aged, worn patina. Nothing in this shop is "new" or "shiny". Please expect all handmade items from this shop to have a certain "aged patina".

If you need additional info, measurements, photos, etc. please convo me and I will be happy to oblige. All items are carefully measured and those measurements are in each listing along with all noted flaws, etc.

- Returned items should include original packaging if at all possible

I do accept cancelations within 24 hrs. of purchase. There is a 10% restocking fee on all orders that buyers wish to cancel prior to shipment.
I accept Pay Pal and major credit cards.

I am happy to put items on reserve for you until you can pay for them. I usually hold items for one week.

For large wholesale or custom orders, a 50% deposit is required in order for me to purchase supplies to fill an order; with the remaining 50% due upon completion of the order and prior to shipment.

If a buyer wants to buy more than one item from my shop, I will be happy to give a "group" discount.
I ship via the USPS, with tracking on all packages.

I ship vintage items within three business days; but most of the time much sooner.

Custom jewelry may take several days to create prior to shipping; upon purchase I will provide an estimated shipping time.

If you need an item in a short time frame, please convo me for info on a possible "receive by" estimate or expedited shipping if needed.

Please let me know prior to purchase if you would like a shipping upgrade for faster delivery. I am happy to do this and can add the additional ammt. to your final purchase price so there's no hassle.

International buyers are responsible for the customs fees, duties, taxes, etc. incurred with their purchase.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I offer personalized stamped spoon jewelry, as long as the words/phrases you choose fit on the silverware. Please convo to inquire about choosing a design.

Wholesale availability

Wholesale pricing on stamped spoon necklaces starts at 10 pcs. Please convo for availability and current turn around times, which can vary by season (Christmas especially) and availability of the spoons (can take a few extra days for supplies).

Care instructions

Our silverware jewelry is all silver plated, and will tarnish with time. None of the silverware jewelry should not be cleaned with traditional jewelry or silver cleaners. Use a stiff scrubbing pad or steel wool to gently buff away tarnish.

Avoid allowing silverware jewelry to be damp for long periods of time. If it does, it will tarnish and the fittings may even rust. Remove jewelry before prolonged exposure to water/dampness.

If the black filling inside the stamped letters wears off due to excessive cleaning, washing, or use of jewelry cleaners, etc. it can be replaced using a fine tipped permanent marker (such as a Sharpie pen).
