About

My car naturally brakes for estate sales now!

I've been a crafts person for years, still enjoy the creativity of it all as you can see with our offerings of handcrafted floral & veggie table arrangements. But, after discovering VINTAGE, I started searching for classic pieces too that I could share with you. My family insists my car automatically turns toward any resale store, house sale or antiquity shop that may cross my path.

I try to find old pieces for FINEOLDTHINGS that are in fine quality condition ~ pieces that are patiently waiting for a new home & the place of honor they held in times past.. those bits of nostalgia that help decorate your home with a touch of the past but still look good to the contemporary eye.

It is the buyer's responsibility to make sure the shipping address(es) are correct both with etsy and PayPal.

If insurance is included in the shipment & there is breakage, the recipient of the package is required to bring the damaged item(s) and all packaging to their local post office for inspection. THE DECISION TO ALLOW A DAMAGE CLAIM IS AT THE DISCRETION OF USPS. If allowed, a starter file is entered there & I complete it on my end with the insurance receipt, etc.

price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to purchasing. Seller assumes no responsibility for interruption of delivery caused by non US postal or customs authorities.

Additional policies and FAQs
All items from fineoldthings are sold "as is" since they are vintage or antique.

If instructed by the Buyer, I'll send the purchase to someone other than the Buyer. A personalized notecard can be included under my hand. A business card from FINEOLDTHINGS is regularly enclosed in a shipment.

If a prospective buyer asks for a "Reserve" Hold on an item, fineoldthings will usually grant the Reserve for a period of three (3) days unless other arrangements have been made between fineoldthings and prospective buyer. After the 3 days, fineoldthings has the option of putting the item back for Sale since the Reserve time limit has not been met.

Fineoldthings cannot accept responsibility for any injury sustained by the use or handling of vintage, antique or handcrafted merchandise. This is especially true with children since smaller items can pose a choking hazard. Please, know your children and buy accordingly.

Your package may not be mailed in a new envelope or box. I use recycled boxes and packing material when I can to help preserve the environment.
