Beautiful Treasures Found For You

As a child my parents would often take me around antique shops and open homes of grand Queenslanders and I believe these experiences sowed the seed for the love and appreciation of the amazing craftsmanship of times gone by.

When my husband and I designed our own home, I didn't want to furnish it with mass-produced, poorly made items - rather something unique, age-worn and everlasting - and this is when my love of vintage came to the fore: sourcing a Victorian era iron gate from Melbourne, Art Deco leather armchair and century-old bookshelves for our landing library and an antique iron bed for our daughter's bedroom ... among other things.

Now, I find it impossible to walk past an op-shop and can be frequently found scouring swap meets and rummaging through backyard sheds! Certain items catch my eye and stand out from the flotsam and jetsam; items that were beautifully crafted in a time when things were made to last.

Now I can share my finds in my little shop!

Thanks for popping in to my little shop. I love to trawl the local op-shops, cluttered spare rooms and grungy backyard sheds for little treasures that are hiding away, so I can give them new life and a new home. Many items are not perfect, but have a wonderful vintage patina that hints at the stories of their previous owners.

Returns and exchanges
Refunds will only be given if the item is significantly different from that described and pictured and if the item is returned, at the expense of the customer, in the same state as it was sent.
Please contact me if there are any questions or concerns.
For Australian purchases, I accept PayPal, Direct Checkout, bank transfer and cash on local pick-up. For international customers, I accept PayPal and Direct Checkout.
I will parcel up the items and post them within 1-3 business days after payment has cleared in my account. I always try to find the cheapest postage rate that will safely transport the purchased items. Any overcharge will be refunded. I normally use recycled materials for packing so would not usually charge for packaging, but in the event that nothing suitable can be found, I will add the small cost for bought packaging and include this in the postage price for the listing.
I send by regular post but customers can request registered post with tracking if they wish.
AIRMAIL to international locations generally takes between 14-21 working days - please allow longer at peak holiday times such as Christmas/New Year and Easter.
Sea mail is offered for international customers, however, please note that this service can take up to 3 months. Any parcels over 1.5kg are quoted at the Seamail rate but customers can request Airmail if required.
International customers are responsible for any customs charges imposed by their country.
