Announcement   CRAZY SUMMER SALE! No coupon code needed - sale items marked down 30% or more! Search "sale" for a complete listing of all sale items.


Specializing in antique jewelry (Victorian/Civil War, Edwardian), vintage jewelry (Art Deco, Retro Moderne, Mid Century, Mod, Retro), and various jewelry making supplies (vintage beads, Czech glass, brass charms & findings.

WELCOME.
I am obsessed with old pretty-much-everything and am thrilled to share my love of vintage with the world! From Victorian honeymoon pins to Edwardian filigree to wartime Sweetheart tokens to Mid-Century pearls and rhinestones to 80s neon & gaud, I offer a little bit of everything. I am always open to considering reasonable offers because I absolutely understand falling head-over-heels for something I can't necessarily afford - or, even, I don't want to pay so much for. So please do not hesitate to Convo me to discuss.

I am also happy to offer a sprinkling of bead-y delights: made in U.S.A. naturally hand-oxidized and -finished (in my studio, of course!) brass charms & clasps, fabulous vintage components (including mixes of random vintage jewels and bits for re-purposing and/or adornment), semi-precious stones, precious metals, and other assorted whatnots that make my heart go a-flutter.

SO.
What are you waiting for? Come & get your love.

About

I am obsessed.

It's really that simple. I am totally crazy for most everything that is old and am absolutely spellbound by the wonder of vintage items. (If only I had a nickel for every time someone has told me I was born in the wrong era!) So, I decided to de-stash some of my jewelry-making whatnots - and eventually, vintage jewels and bits - so I could continue to buy and collect without developing a serious hoarding problem. Or going bankrupt.

It has been a wonderfully mad journey thus far... because, you know, vintage can break your heart. It is exciting to think of what's yet to come...

Thank you for visiting my shop. I hope you find all sorts of treasures to call your own.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
My prefered method of payment is PayPal. For your convenience, the following payments can be made through PayPal - even if you so not have a PayPal account: Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, debit cards with Visa or MC logo, eCheck and bank transfers. Please see http://www.etsy.com/help/article/361 for step-by-step assistance for making such payments.

I also accept Postal Money Orders but they must be authorized prior to check-out via Convo.

I am also open to trades.
Shipping
All orders will be shipped within two business days of receiving cleared payment. Please be aware that eChecks can take up to two weeks to clear.

If Etsy and PayPal addresses do not match, shipment will be held until buyer the confirms correct address.

* DOMESTIC ***
Standard shipping is via USPS First Class with Delivery Confirmation. Upgrading to Priority Mail is available during checkout.

* INTERNATIONAL ***
All items will be shipped USPS First Class International. USPS First Class is the most economical shipping option for international shipments; however, it does not guarantee a specific delivery date. Although the typical delivery time for international shipments is within 10 business days from date of shipment, it can take longer - especially if the package is being held by the local Customs office. I appreciate consideration for this when purchasing items for time-sensitive occasions.

Buyer is responsible for paying any import taxes, customs duties, and/or fees imposed by the destination country on their packages. (EU buyers, PLEASE be aware of the VAT and processing fees associated with buying outside the EU. These fees are NOT included in any of my shop transactions.)
Refunds and Exchanges
Because I make every effort to accurately describe and photograph my items, I appreciate that consideration would be given to the possibility that slight color variances may occur due to the color calibration of each individual monitor. Photos are considered part of the item's description.

Returns will be accepted if shipped back within 14 days of receipt. Buyer is responsible for return shipping costs unless the item arrives damaged or has been grossly misrepresented. Return authorizations are required via Convo for proper processing.
Additional policies and FAQs
Looking for something specific? Ask me and I'll do the best I can to make your wildest dreams come true.

* A NOTE on my BRASS ***
All my brass items are made in the USA from vintage tooling and are lead and nickel free. Because my brass items are naturally hand-oxidized and -finished in my studio, the color and finish will vary from piece to piece. I take immense pride in my detailed six-step process and think the difference in appearance of each piece is what heightens the charm and "old world" feel of the items I offer.

* A NOTE on my VINTAGE ***
Because vintage items have been previously loved (i.e. are not new), they will often show wear. I will make every effort to list accurate photos and detail any major flaws (missing and/or dead stones, extensively worn plating, verdigris) in each respective listing. Although minor wear (light tarnish spots, slightly yellowed/darkened stones, etc.) is common, I will still do my best to note these details as well. {I tend to appreciate these little nuances as I think they add to the mystery and charm of each piece.}

I do not clean any of my vintage items prior to sale as I leave that choice up to each individual collector.

I am always open to reasonable offers on my vintage pieces so please feel free to Convo me to discuss.
