As described. Great condition. Item arrived carefully wrapped in box to prevent damage. I'm excited that the clutch exactly matches the belt that came with the dress I bought. It will be perfect to take to the upcoming wedding am attending. Thank you!

beautiful glasses. Very retro and will make my next party much more stylish
It's the small luxuries that make day to day life special!!
Early in life I learned to sew and embroider from my mother. Both those skills have always offered a creative avenue for me that could be squeezed into a life with a full time job and volunteer work.
After retiring, I was looking for a creative outlet. When I discovered Etsy, I knew it was my new direction in life. It offered a way for me to have an in home business and branch out in any creative direction I chose. Since paper and fabric have been my favorite mediums, I chose that as the main direction for my shop.
I, also, enjoy vintage finds and the re-purposing of items. So, from time to time you will find things that fall into those categories.
For me, it's the small luxuries that make everyday special. A beautiful one-of-a-kind table runner, a unique greeting card, or an elegant fine china tea cup for an afternoon break. These kinds of things put a little smile on my face. My goal is to offer things that will bring this same feeling to others.
Around the web
After retiring from 27 years in banking, I was looking for a more creative direction in life. When I discovered the Etsy marketplace, I knew it was the perfect place for me. My love of paper and fabric gave me the main direction for my shop.
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
I accept PayPal, credit/debit cards and Etsy gift cards.
I must receive payment within 48 hours of purchase or the item will be re-listed for sale.
If the cost of shipping listed is less to your area, I will refund you any difference of $2.00 or more.
I try to ship the business day following payment, but no later than two business days after payment.
If you need rush delivery, please contact me and I'll do my best to accommodate your request. The additional shipping cost for rush delivery will be the responsibility of the buyer.
*IMPORTANT* My furniture is only available for local pick up, but I will personally deliver within 30 miles of area code 98632 for a fee. Please contact me to discuss delivery charges. Etsy does not provide a pick up only option. Therefore shipping is indicated as free only because I do not use a third party to ship. Please contact me PRIOR TO PURCHASE to coordinate pick up or to discuss delivery charges. If you choose delivery, I will put a separate listing with delivery charge based on your zip code in my Etsy shop. I will contact you with a link to that listing. I will not deliver/ship until I confirm item and delivery payment has been received.
I do my best to accurately describe the condition of all vintage items. You can assume all vintage items are used unless otherwise stated in the description.
Please understand that many of my items have been previously loved. They may show some general wear consistent with the age and specific use of the item, but I'll try to describe the condition accurately through photographs and words to correctly represent the item. Rust, scratches, dents, tarnishing and crazing are common in vintage and antique items. If you have any questions about a particular item, please contact me prior to purchase.
In an effort to be environmentally responsible and to keep shipping costs down for my customers, I use clean recycled materials for shipping. This could include paper or plastic grocery bags, newspaper, used wrapping paper and used packages and packaging materials. Essentially, anything that is clean and can be reused is considered for packing material. I place more value in getting your item to you without being damaged than in perfectly pretty packing. Please consider reusing or recycling the materials after you open your package.
Refunds and Exchanges
It is my desire to offer you vintage items which are in good to excellent condition. I am careful to give you the measurements of the items so you can compare to your own to determine whether they will fit you. Please understand that with online shopping it is impossible to guarantee fit even though great care is given to help. Buyers and sellers all have a responsibility of fair sales and I wish to thank you in advance for being fair with me as well.
My handmade items are in pristine condition. I attempt to take photos that reflect the true color and shadings of these items. But, the difference between monitors can cause variations.
If on the rare occasion a refund is given to you, please know that shipping costs are not refunded. The cost of return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer.
If a refund is made, the item/s being returned to me must arrive in the exact condition as they were sold. Any return must be made within 5 business days of having received your purchase.
It is my desire that you are very pleased with your transactions and service. However, it is important that it be mentioned here that the responsibility of the seller cannot be extended to circumstances beyond their control. Please understand that I cannot be responsible for any mail delays, problems, non-delivery or loss of your packages.
Thank you for your understanding.
