About

Waterloo County Vintage ~ the way we find it ~ or the way we make it!

When not hiking with her husband, playing bridge, enjoying her six grandchildren, cooking, cleaning, etc. etc. Claudia is working/playing on Etsy. As well as raising four children, she worked most of her adult life as a social worker. After moving to Waterloo County she has spent much more time reading, writing, and no - not doing arithmetic - but indulging her lifelong interest in finding treasures at garage sales, rummage sales, estate auctions, and thrift shops. She loves finding new homes for things!

Kathy has been an avid seamstress and quilter for many years. When she's not sewing, you may find her volunteering/tutoring primary school students in reading and math, singing in her church choir, ushering at Kitchener's Centre in the Square, or enjoying her nine grandchildren.

When he's not getting our vintage Harris Tweed jackets ready for upcycling, you're likely to find Lorne working in the garden, kitchen, or doing home renovations. Probably a few more things as well.

If you have an idea for something else made out of vintage Harris Tweed - just get in touch - some of our new product ideas such as custom pillows and draft dodgers have come from ETSY customers. And if you have a family heirloom Harris Tweed that's just hanging in the closet unloved and unworn, we're happy to transform it for you!

We're proud to be members of the Etsy Vintage Team ~ EVT shops are vetted and held to high standards of professionalism, integrity, and customer service.

Payment
Paypal or Direct Check-out are both fine. If you would like to send a cheque (check) or money order, please convo me first.
Shipping
If you are buying more than one item, be sure and ask for an invoice so I can calculate the correct amount. I only want to charge you what the post office will charge me and it can be complicated here in the Great White North. Many of my items will flatten down and travel as letterpost. Several small lightweight items can often ship for the same price - it's determined by weight and thickness. If it's a parcel, it goes by weight and again - I'll need to weigh up your items and give you the total.

I pack carefully but do use a lot of recycled material - so the envelopes and boxes may well have travelled the world (or held tea, macaroni or muesli crunch crsipbread) before they get to you.
Refunds and Exchanges
If I haven't described something properly, let me know and we'll work out a refund or exchange - positive feedback is more important to me than a few dollars.
