Announcement   I hope you're enjoying all the 'new' holiday items, including my new -- "Vintage Santa Claus" section to make it easier to find your favorite vintage Santa. Do you like to walk down memory lane? To what seems like a simpler time, when mason jars had hand printed "Tomato" gummed labels, and aluminum cookie cutters came in so many shapes? Or how about that Little Golden Classic children's book you remember reading, about a hundred times? These are the vintage treasures I look for. Treasures that make you smile and think back to your own childhood. How about a memory basket, filled with those little vintage memories? Start your own basket of memories at Emmylucy.

I offer uncommon vintage treasures, including gummed labels and shipping tags (embellish for Valentine's Day or Wedding place cards), small childrens books, vintage buttons, adult vintage collectible books, and fun vintage items to delight. New to my shop are vintage-inspired supplies such as spun cotton mushrooms, perfect little embellishments to use in your fairy garden, to use as package toppers, and other miniature projects.

NOTE; I will combine shipping charges for the best price...convo me with the items you would like to order and I will give you the fairest shipping cost. Or, simply place order and I will refund any overage in shipping. Enjoy shopping for unique vintage treasures! Convo me for shipping details to your country. I am adding new vintage treasures daily.

I surely am my dad's daughter - he ran the Oddball store in Detroit 30 years ago, an imposing old bank building filled to the rafters with new old stock store supplies-flags, stationery, toys, you name it...and now, my own shop filled with (sometimes "Oddball") objects of experience (vintage), and handcrafted treasures, all created with vintage trims, paper and love.

Welcome, and return often!

About

Growing Up with the "Oddball"

My heritage was cemented in my father's passion for auctions, the great deal, and selling. From the earliest time, we lived behind the small store that my father owned. It was your typical city neighborhood grocery store where, behind the counter, a small metal file box held IOUs...from the folks who lived up the street or on the other side of the alley. In a family of seven, it was apparent to my father (Ed) that he needed to beef up his inventory that consisted of canned goods, candy, pop, lunch meats and hand-cut meat. So he went to an auction one day and was bitten by the bug! Boxes of odds and ends sat next to the peas and corn. "What is this thing, Ed," they would ask. Ed would reply, "I don't know but you can have it for a dollar." He would bring home amazing treasures, including lots of vintage items such as books, restaurant dishes, flags, and toys. Later, when we had to relocate to another home and were without the business, due to a highway expansion, my dad set up shop on 8 Mile Rd and named it the "Odd Ball". Many, many auctions and years later, I honed my own passion for the "deal" and vintage treasures. It's in my blood. I love the hunt. I also love to recycle vintage finds. Welcome, and thank you for stopping by!

Hello and welcome to Emmylucy! Briefly, I grew up in the "shop" business, having lived behind our grocery store, then later on, working in my dad's outlet store called "The Odd Ball" where I really discovered my passion for hunting down the unique and unusual. Much later, I ran a small herb and vintage shop in Metamora, where I constructed handbags, vintage items and hair bows. I love having my own shop on Etsy, and hope you will stop by often, as I add new items every few days.

My policy is to give the best customer service and to deliver exactly what my customer expects.

Payment
Payment is by Paypal, credit card and money order. I will always be fair and work with you for a seamless, enjoyable transaction.

If for any reason you are unhappy with an item (if I haven't explained the nuances of the products carefully), let me hear from you.

Occasionally I will reserve items. Reserved listings are good for 7 days before I re-list them for public sale. I am convo friendly so please let me know if you need a little longer.
Shipping
Typically I use the postal service since I live two blocks from our village post office. I actually ride my bike there, so I can make deliveries just about any time and day.

At this time I do not offer insurance but if there is an item of special value and you would like me to do so, I will add this service to your bill. Just convo me.

Please feel free to convo me if you are interested in multiple items.

If you live in an exotic, foreign land, just let me know what you are interested in, and I will get it weighed and have a price for shipping the same day. Please note that I cannot guarantee that your purchase will be delivered. At this time there is no way to track overseas shipments.
Refunds and Exchanges
Please look at pictures and read descriptions carefully, and convo me with any questions before purchasing. My items are vintage or antique so they are not going to smell like perfume and will most likely be tattered, stained, worn, torn, or dirty some may have rust, holes or faint odors and will be identified as such. Sorry, I cannot give refunds.
