About

I'm a photographer, treasure hunter, vintage lover.

I started my shop because I've loved searching for beautiful things for as long as I can remember. The dream of curating my own shop has been a little seed in my heart for a long time, but it's taken a while to realize that life is simply too short to not follow those dreams.

There's something so comforting about vintage items... there is often a story attached to these pieces of life and so many stories still left to tell. My grandmother Dorothy (Dot)'s house has become a place of comfort, full of vintage charm, always consistent, always the same. I love the memories attached to the plates we use during Thanksgiving dinner, the frames surrounding beloved photographs, and mugs used by family to drink countless numbers of cups of coffee. There is always coffee to be had with my sweet grandmother.

I take great care in selecting items for my shop, hoping that they will radiate the same charm and feeling of home.


Butterfly Laughter by Katherine Mansfield

In the middle of our porridge plates
There was a blue butterfly painted
And each morning we tried who should reach the
butterfly first.
Then the Grandmother said: "Do not eat the poor
butterfly."
That made us laugh.
Always she said it and always it started us laughing.
It seemed such a sweet little joke.
I was certain that one fine morning
The butterfly would fly out of our plates,
Laughing the teeniest laugh in the world,
And perch on the Grandmother's lap.

I am in love with vintage items and the potential they hold, both in their history and in their future. I’m constantly searching for items that I love. As much as I would love to, I can’t keep every pretty thing I find, so I happily share my passion for vintage treasures with you.

Payment
I accept credit card payments through Etsy, PayPal, and Etsy gift cards.
Please note: You can use a debit/credit card through PayPal even if you do not have a PayPal account.

Sales tax is added to purchases made by you lovely Minnesota residents (varies by city).
Shipping
I ship within 1-3 business days of payment via USPS, with the exception of holidays and weekends. Items are shipped using USPS First Class or USPS Priority mail -- whichever is most cost effective including tracking. If an item is exceptionally heavy it will be shipped via Parcel Post/Standard Post. I will also occasionally ship via Media Mail if I'm the item I'm shipping will qualify and be cheaper to ship that way.

I will happily combine shipping on multiple items if it is possible and makes sense to do so. If you are interested in purchasing multiple items feel free to message me for a combined shipping quote.

Keep in mind I purchase some shipping materials, but try to be environmentally and fiscally conscious and reuse boxes and packing materials. I package all items very carefully and therefore, especially if an item is fragile, it might require extra packaging materials. Shipping prices quoted reflect not only shipping costs but packaging as well. I will, however, refund any shipping overages that exceed $2.00.

All items are stored and shipped from a smoke free, pet free environment.
Refunds and Exchanges
All of the items I list are vintage and I will do my very best to describe and show an item's condition, color, and size.

I love the items I list and I want you to love them too! If for some reason you aren't satisfied I will do my best to make it right. Items can be returned if I am contacted within 5 days of receipt of the item. I will gladly refund as long as the item is returned in its original condition. Once I receive the item I will refund your payment (minus original shipping costs). Please note that return shipping is the buyer's responsibility.
Additional policies and FAQs
The wonderful part about vintage goods is that the items you purchase have been loved in the past. This may show in the form of some wear and is perfectly normal. I will do my very best to describe any flaws in an item I list as well as provide clear photos that allow you to view an item well.

Also -- keep in mind all computer monitors differ in brightness and color calibration, so the item you receive could vary slightly in color/brightness from the photo you see on your screen.
