Announcement    📦A note on shipping: We're proudly refusing to allow Etsy to bully us into deceiving you about shipping costs. Of course shipping costs money, but we don't want it to cost you any more than it actually costs us to get your treasure to you. What "free shipping" does is hide that cost in the cost of the item and that means that those of you who live in the same region of the country as us are stuck paying the same amount that it would cost to ship across the country. It also means that if you buy multiple items there's no way to combine the shipping so you'll be paying full shipping price for each item in your order. We refuse to do this to you, our valued customers! We will always keep our shipping pricing transparent, and we will always refund any overage above a dollar.📫

☠️Hello and Welcome to Dead Men Telling Tales, our ever growing collection of madness and wonder, sure to entertain, educate, enthrall, and enrapture all who peruse these virtual aisles! 🛒

🔭We are always on the hunt for marvellous treasures from around the globe and through the ages. We do the hunting so you don't have to! Everything in this shop is 100% guaranteed to be super cool, really neat, utterly bizarre, or simply astounding! And new things are added all the time so check back often! 🎁

🤔If you want to know more about the crew that curates this collection (curiosity killed the cat, but satisfaction brought it back) then you should check out the profile, about, and policies pages. If you still want to know more about us after reading those, then feel free to convo us, or send an email to deadmentellingtales [!at] hotmail.com and don't forget to follow us on instagram @deadmen_tellingtales to get first notice of new-old treasures and special coupon code offers! 💌

About

Hello & Welcome to this Collection of Madness and Wonder that we call Dead Men Telling Tales

Far be it from me to disagree with conventional pirate wisdom, but we have found that dead men do indeed have plenty of tales to tell, if you just know where to look and how to listen. We find the items that carry the stories and we bring them to you.

Here in this exquisite collection you are sure to find something that charms you. Probably multiple somethings. We are always on the hunt for exotic and enchanting treasures so that we might bring them back for your further delight. Really. Go look. I'll wait....
See? Delightful, yes? I know. We're always adding more so come back soon and often!

We go hunting so you don't have to!

Shop members

  • Geneva

    Owner, Curator, Huntress

    Trained from birth as an elite zombie assassin, while waiting for the inevitable zombie apocalypse, she busies herself with treasure hunting, storytelling, & translating dog thoughts into English. Some day she would like to be the Queen of France.

  • Audley

    Human Resources, Legal Department, Owner

    Heir to the French Canine throne, he likes to spend his days searching for rare and charming artifacts (and bugs.) He also likes to repeatedly squeak his toys. He's a dog, he's a little kid, he's mostly chupacabra. @audley_ledauphin on instagram!

  • Adam

    Hunter, Chief Of Loud, Owner

    Born with a good eye and a silver tongue, he always dominates the treasure hunt. Not only does he help to keep the shelves of this collection full, but he keeps the volume cranked up to 11.

  • Mufasa

    Curator, Owner, Marketer

    The chillest pomeranian West of the Mississippi, his blood might be pure but don't let his papers fool you, this kid did time on the streets. These days, he helps on the hunt and definitely has a nose for adventure.

  • Alicia Bug

    Model, Buyer, Owner

    She might not be able to make it down the catwalk without crutches but we like our models with walking impediments. Like we say in the vintage business, it adds character. But what she lacks in mobility, she makes up for in aesthetic sense.

Shop policies

Last updated on August 8, 2019
Hello. Here are the rules. (Boo! Hiss! Rules are itchy!) I know, I know, but there isn't much I can do about it.

Accepted payment methods

Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
  • Other Method
Returns and exchanges
I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Returns and exchange details
Please let us know if there is any problem with anything to do with your order and we will do our very best to work it all out. We want happy customers, who leave great reviews, recommend us to their friends, and come back to shop with us again!
We don't want angry customers plotting revenge or enacting voodoo against us.
Payment
We accept all major credit and debit cards through Etsy direct checkout or PayPal. We also accept Etsy gift cards.
We no longer accept magic beans as payment. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Shipping
We have resisted the push for listing free shipping because we all know that there really isn't any such thing. It costs money to ship packages and a small business like ours can't afford to just eat that cost. If we were to list free shipping, we would have to increase the price of items to cover the highest possible shipping cost and that's deceitful to you, our customers, and downright overcharging customers who are geographically close to us. Also, by keeping the shipping a separate charge, you can save money when buying multiple items that ship together, regardless of how near or far you are. We hope you understand and appreciate our transparency and honesty in shipping policies.

Shipping includes tracking and insurance, and any overage above a dollar will be refunded. We do gladly combine shipping to save you money. Please understand that some items are delicate and require a fair amount of packing supplies to ensure a safe journey. While we reuse packing supplies whenever we can, it isn't always possible and bubble wrap costs money. We only charge you what it costs us. We don't make any profit on shipping.

Depending on when you place your order, it usually ships out the same day or the next, but can take up to three days on rare occasions. If you need something by a specific date, let us know and we will work to make that happen.

We ship most items via USPS. Because of weight and/or value, some items ship Priority, but some other things will ship First Class, Parcel Post, or Media Mail. Some of the larger and/or heavier items are less expensive to ship via FedEx or UPS so in some instances, we will use them as well. If you have any questions or concerns about how your order will be shipping, feel free to reach out to us. We are always happy to help and we will work out whatever works best for you and your order.
Please note, extremely large items like furniture require special shipping arrangements or local pickup. That will always be noted in the individual listing information, and as always, we are happy to answer any questions anytime!

We do ship internationally, same policy as domestic. We cannot be responsible for customs fees or delays.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you any questions about anything in the collection, any of those itchy rules, or really anything at all, just send us a convo through Etsy or an email direct to deadmentellingtales [!at] hotmail.com We're full of information, both useful and obscure, and we don't often bite strangers.
Privacy
We don't have any interest in your information beyond using your address to ship you your order. That's it.
