Finding new homes for orphaned treasures.

Every day I love the past more. There is something wonderful about bringing pieces of history into your home. When I am searching thrift stores for vintage clothing to repurpose into new baby coats, hats and shoes, I find some pretty awesome treasures! So.....thus began Fromthemousenest. Mid-century items especially call out for me to rescue them from the dusty shelves.

So I collect the best of these memories to pass on to others and share the unique time period that were the 40's, 50's and 60's. These are things that have been previously used and loved....been props in other families' stories....and now they deserve to be loved and used again!

    My name is cherie. As a little girl I loved reading animal stories- the best were about mice. I loved the idea of mouse families living together snugly in their nests or burrows with beds made of matchboxes.

Welcome to my little shop of treasures! I am so glad you stopped by to check out From the Mouse Nest.

I started collecting orphaned vintage items on my treasure hunts to nearby small town thrift stores while I was looking for old men's sportcoats and other vintage clothing that I use to create baby coats and soft shoes for my Countymouse etsy shop. Now I am bringing these home to put them up for adoption.

It is a special treat when I see something I can snag that brings back childhood parents were married in 1956 so the home I grew up in was full of these goodies.

I ship USPS unless FedEx is a substantial savings for you. Since Etsy changed their shipping and SEO policies it is more complicated to process and I will use usps priority whenever feasible. However, FedEx is sometimes the only practical way to go. Please convo me if you have a problem with that and we can work directly to find a good option for you. I will get your order out in 2-5 business days unless otherwise noted on the item listing.

I am glad to ship internationally....please convo me and I will give you a quote for cost to your location.

Most of the items in my shop are fragile, so they need extra bubble wrap etc. This may increase the packing cost and/or weight of package to ensure it's safe arrival. This is already calculated into the shipping cost as quoted for your zip code.
