About

Finding Beauty and Value Others Have Overlooked

Welcome to my shop. I am a former pastor who is now in the antique and art world fulltime, as well as a specialized grower of hostas and garlic varieties, and numerous veggies and perennials for local farmers markets. Just as a pastor finds the beauty and value in people others might ignore or overlook, I now do the same thing in the world of collectibles, finding those hidden gems in what others no longer want.

I have been doing mail order sales since 1981, starting with stamps and coins, and moving to a full line of antiques in 2000. Find me online on several sites, at Mid-west antique shows, and at area farmers markets during the growing season. I am always looking for those quirky and different items. Have fun browsing what I have!

    Owner, Professional Grower, Full-time Picker

    After working in a variety of jobs over the years, I've settled into fulltime antiques and organic growing for farmers markets. My son and daughter are now grown, leaving me free to travel the country looking for unusual finds.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
  • Check
  • Other Method
Payment
All standard forms of payment are accepted. CHECKS/money orders/cashier's checks may be held until they clear, so expect shipping delays on these forms of payment, unless you are using USPS money orders. CREDIT CARDS are accepted through Etsy Direct Checkout, Paypal, or direct (contact me). LAY-AWAYS can be set up on larger items...contact me for terms. USA 90% SILVER COINS (1964 and earlier) are also accepted. Contact me for current exchange rates. Iowa residents will have sales tax added.
Shipping
We do not make a profit on shipping like some sellers. Our charges are actual costs for shipping and packing. However, etsy does not allow for multiple rates to be listed based on your region, so if you feel you've been substantially overcharged, contact us. Shipping is usually 3-5 days after purchase as I often only make it into town once a week for shipping, esp. during winter months.

Shipping is usually by the cheapest method the USPS offers to save you money, plus the cost of tracking, insurance and packing materials. If you need faster shipping, contact me for availability (overnight shipping is not available in my rural area). All items are shipped with tracking info/insurance #'s to avoid scammers and to verify return/refund requests. Orders may not be accepted from zip codes that can't be insured.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: Ask for rates if not listed. We do not ship to countries that can't be insured...those orders will be canceled. Many items will be sent by Priority Mail or Registered Mail for added security. If you are substantially overcharged for shipping, I'll refund the difference. Customs fees/VAT/brokerage fees are your responsibility. Remember also that international shippers and/or customs agencies can sometimes take weeks or even months to clear packages for delivery. We have no control over this.
Refunds and Exchanges
Refunds ONLY if item is substantially different from the description and photos. Photos are a part of the description. View them for signs of wear and damage. Because of the possibility of switching, jewelry made of fine gold/gems and large collections (stamps, coins, etc.) are NOT returnable for any reason. No returns/refunds on custom orders. I use lots of photos and secret marks to confirm the validity of all returns. All other items: 7-day return privilege from day you received it, and should be back to me within 18 days of day you received it (foreign buyers-I realize our Homeland Security can delay that. I take the postal cancellation date into consideration).

Most of my items are antique or vintage so naturally are often NOT going to be in perfectly new condition as a result (faults will be listed), therefore items cannot be returned for those faults/wear. Return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. Shipping charges are not refunded. No partial refunds. Full refund of item price once it is returned. Item must be returned in the condition it was sent to you. Damaged/lost in shipping...you must fully cooperate with filing a claim with the post office or shipper, and you will be refunded once the claim is finalized.
Additional policies and FAQs
Many of my items are one-of-a-kind, and I have local customers looking at them. If you buy something that has just sold locally and wasn't yet removed, the order will be cancelled and your full payment returned to you, unless I have a duplicate item in stock. You can always contact me before your purchase to confirm the item is still available.
