Frecklewonder - treasure hunter, collector, lover of old things
Hi guys! My name is Jenny and I started selling vintage clothing online way back in the olden days of Ebay, which seems like a life time ago! In 2002, I started a blog (Frecklewonder) that was originally used to share shop news but over the years it evolved into so much more: a sort of vintage loving, treasure sharing, chicken keeping, lifestyle-family kind of blog. It was a fun ride, and I loved meeting so many folks and making so many connections and friendships. In October or 2012, after a decade of blogging, I turned in my key and retired from the blogging world. There are things I miss, but I'm relieved to not have to edit images and come up with fresh content daily. I'm happy to have some time back in my day to focus on other things. Like going back to school! I'm in the beginning stages of pursuing a decade long dream of becoming a nurse. How 'bout them apples!
Treasure hunting is in my blood and thrifting is my therapy, so even though I'm no longer blogging, I still hit the estate sales, antique shows and auctions on a weekly basis. I sell locally at an antique store in my tiny downtown town, and that's where most of my finds are available for purchase, but I decided to keep my Etsy shop open so that I can do occasional (maybe seasonal) shop updates to share my finds with vintage lovers with a similar eye for things. I've met so many great people over the years, and I guess this is a small way to stay in touch.
I'm excited to offer a wide variety of vintage items: things to collect, things to wear, things to read, things to give. If there's ever something you're on the hunt for, shoot me an email! I might be able to find it for you.
Around the web
Owner, Curator, Finder, Photographer, Shipping Lady: I Do It All.
I've been selling vintage for a dozen years and collecting for even longer. I love it all: books, glassware and all things for the kitchen, clothing, kitschy ceramic animals, you name it. I live in the beautiful state of Virginia with my family.
On the hunt for something special? Shoot me an email - I might be able to track it down for you!
Accepted payment methods
Your item will be lovingly packaged and shipped off following your payment.
Please note that I do my best to estimate shipping costs for international orders based on location and experience, but occasionally my estimate is off -- should the difference be more than two dollars in either direction, I will adjust the shipping cost so that it is fair for both sides. I don't want you overpaying for shipping and I don't want to lose an arm and a leg either. A shipping refund or a paypal request for additional shipping will be sent anytime the shipping cost is off by more than 2 US dollars.
Items will be shipped via USPS Priority mail within 48 hours of purchase excluding orders placed on a Friday, which will not ship until the following Monday due to the Post Office being closed on Saturdays.
Frecklewonder is not responsible for lost packages. Delivery confirmation will be automatically added to every order shipped via Priority Mail and buyer will receive email notification of the shipment, including delivery confirmation. Please remember that delivery confirmation is not the same as a TRACKING number - the post office often times does not update their system quickly enough to track a package but rather just to determine that an item has indeed been delivered.
If you would like to add insurance to your package, please send me an email BEFORE checking out and I will adjust the shipping cost to include insurance.
I reuse/recycle shipping supplies whenever possible. This keeps shipping costs low and helps the environment at the same time. Win, win!
Refunds and Exchanges
I work hard to provide crisp, clear, large images as well as detailed descriptions in the hopes that you can "window shop" to the best of your abilities.
All sales are final and I do not offer refunds - if you should need more information, or something you'd like to see more of, please ask! I'm always available to help.
Additional policies and FAQs
Sorry, I do not reserve items at this time.
Ordering a special gift for a friend or loved one? Let me know and I'd be happy to include a special note and/or gift wrap the item for you at no charge.
