Announcement Many of the vintage items in this shop have been rescued to be given new purpose. And most of the handcrafted items are created with reclaimed materials. That is why I think of them as unique, one-of-a-kind, not-to-be-reproduced treasures. They are being given new life...new purpose. They are treasures being transformed FROM LOST TO FOUND! Among them is a trinket or treasure you will simply adore! Shop 'til your heart's content...and enjoy!

My condition descriptions for vintage items are as follows:
Pristine: new, never used; may have original price markings or wrappers
Excellent: very gently used, but no damage
Very Good: mild damage; overall shows mild to moderate use; may have one or two very slight faults
Good: some noticeable damages: more than one or two faults: shows normal to heavy use
Fair: may be usable, considerably damaged or repaired and heavily used
Poor: not usable as is; may have missing parts; great for repurposing
My home is smoke-free, but dog friendly. However, many of the vintage items come from unknown environments and I cannot attest to their origin. If any smell is noticed on the item, I will note it in the description.
All vintage items that are washable, unless they are new and never been used, have been washed in fragrance-free, mild detergent and have been dried in the dryer. All washable materials used in hand-crafted items whether new or reclaimed, have been prewashed to reduce the possibility of shrinking or fading from laundering. Reclaimed woolen materials have been prewashed in hot water which makes the finished product washable in cold water with mild detergent.
My handmade bags are created without patterns. Therefore, bags or purses will not be identical from one to the next. I include actual measurements in the descriptions of my listings.
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
- Money Order
I also accept Cashier's Checks and Money Orders upon request, but realize it will take longer to receive your items. Please convo me prior to your purchase. No Personal Checks.
Shipping costs are estimated based on distances furthest from Texas. If shipping to your area is less, overages of more than $2.00 will be refunded upon request after the item is shipped. I do not refund overages on postage unless the payment was made through PayPal or credit card.
I do my very best to package items for mailing to insure safe delivery into your hands, but I cannot be responsible for what the post office employees do with the package on its way to you. If you would like the items purchased to be insured, please convo me before purchase. I require insurance on items that are of a very fragile nature or valued above fifty dollars.
SHIPPING DISCOUNTS: Please keep in mind that I offer shipping discounts for multiple purchases. You pay actual shipping. The estimates are just that--estimates. If there is an overage you may request a refund; if postage is under, I pay the difference. Combining shipping works on most items, but in other cases you would not want to package items in the same carton. For example an antique iron would probably not travel well in the same carton with delicate porcelain tea cups. If you have further questions on this, I would be happy to explain via convo.
I currently list US shipping fees only, but if international shipping is required, please contact me by convo, and I will supply shipping fees for you in a reserved listing. Sorry, no shipping discounts are available on items shipped internationally or to separate addresses.
I reuse materials for shipping whenever possible. This includes boxes, mailers, shredded paper, bubble wrap, and tissue. Be assured that your item is packed with care while at the same time preserving our environment! If you would like your items to be packaged for shipping with new, unused materials, please convo me before the purchase so that shipping fees can be adjusted accordingly. Also gift wrapping is available upon request at no additional charge.
Refunds and Exchanges
Please read the description and look at the photos carefully. I receive items in return at my expense only if I have inadvertently described an item incorrectly or missed some glaring flaw in the description. If you receive an item you are otherwise dissatisfied with (ie. doesn't fit, not the right color, just don't like it), I will accept the return with the conditions that you are responsible for shipping fees both ways and you will pay the fees that were necessary to list and sell the item through Etsy and PayPal.
