NOTE: If you see the word RESERVED in an item's title, please DO NOT BUY. The item has been promised to another Etsy buyer, who has asked us to hold it for them, which we are always glad to do. If you see RESERVED, you are still welcome to inquire about its availability, but again, please do not purchase. Thank you.


★ WELCOME!
Welcome to The Thanatos Archive vintage photography store on Etsy. Here we offer original and unique vintage photography, tintypes, daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, cartes de visite / CDV, post mortem photos, and from time to time, medical antiques and other oddities.

Members of our photo archive receive discounted or FREE shipping on selected, noted items (typically in the "Death & Mourning" section).

To become a member, visit our photo archive at WWW.THANATOS.NET!


★ OUR PHOTO INVENTORY
The vintage photography offered in this Etsy shop appeals to advanced collectors with an eye for the interesting, unusual, special, and rare. There are a lot of vintage photos to choose from around Etsy, though we feel our shop contains the most unique, rarest and interesting vintage photography you will find. Browse the other stores and I believe you will agree... but be careful not to overpay for "run-of-the-mill" photos!


★ PRICING
Unlike many other Etsy shops, the prices of our photographs are determined by very experienced appraisers, and compiled from many years of successful sales of similar, and in some cases, identical items.


★ SHIPPING DISCOUNTS
YES, we gladly combine shipping. Multiple purchases will be shipped in one package when possible, and any excess shipping that you have paid (minus supplies/handling fee/insurance coverage) will be refunded back to you promptly.


★ LAYAWAY / RESERVING AN ITEM
Yes, we do offer reserve/ layaway. Send us a convo for our reasonable and fair layaway terms!


★ ARCHIVAL CLEANING / RESTORATION OF IMAGES
Any daguerreotype you purchase in this shop can be professionally cleaned and resealed using top quality archival materials. In addition, before and after scans will be provided for comparison. Cleaning and resealing not only improves the visibility of the image, but will help preserve them for many years to come.

For samples of our work, or if you have dag from your own collection you would like professionally restored and sealed, please convo me. Rates are $40.00 and up, depending on image size and other factors.

We also offer cleaning and restoration of other formats!


★ MORE ABOUT US
As stated above, we have thousands of old photos - tintypes, cabinet cards, cartes de viste, daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, and more, and cannot possibly list them all. If there is a certain subject or photo you are looking for, contact us and we will be happy to check our stock and if found, list it for you.

About

This is My Etsy Shop

This is my Etsy shop. There are many Etsy shops, but this one is mine. My Etsy shop is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I master my life. My Etsy shop, without me, is useless. Without my Etsy shop, I am useless. I must fire my Etsy shop true. I must shoot straighter than any enemy who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will... My Etsy shop and myself know that what counts in this war is not the rounds we fire, the noise of our burst, nor the smoke we make. We know that it is the hits that count. We will hit... My Etsy shop is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weakness, its strength, its parts, its accessories, its sights and its barrel. I will keep my Etsy shop clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready. We will become part of each other. We will.... Before God I swear this creed. My Etsy shop and myself are the defenders of my country. We are the masters of our enemy. We are the saviors of my life. So be it, until victory is America's and there is no enemy, but Peace.
