There's always more which can be sold
My shop began when a friend recommended the Etsy site. I had been selling my photography and some vintage photos on a local small scale basis for several years. I wanted to reach a larger market, and until the second time my same friend recommended Etsy, I had not checked it out. Once I did, I began to offer photographs for sale. Within a very short time, I realized this was also a perfect venue for selling family estate items and personal items which I had been accruing for years. A move to a new state and smaller home really accelerated the process. Having an Etsy shop since 2010, I have begun to list a diversity of items. Every time I open another packed box, I could use another shop section. My day is centered around research and pricing, cleaning (if appropriate), photographing, packing, weighing, writing listings and placing items on Etsy. I am the only person in this operation, so it is almost a full time job. Delightfully, Etsy works for me 24/7, and that allows me to get out now and then for a break.
Around the web
I am a multichannel person with many interests. Through the years they have included photography, reading, horses, brown & white transferware, sewing, knitting, crocheting, cooking, camping, hiking and many other things.

Not all photographs are available in the larger sizes. As I began shooting with digital cameras, the mega-pixel size was much lower than it is in the camera I use today. Some of those earlier pictures are wonderful, but too small to reproduce at the largest sizes. My pre-digital camera film pictures are all scanned from the film, and there I can control the resolution of the scan, which will allow for any size.
I research each item I list. I look at condition and pricing. All other factors aside, I try to price each item in the mid range of values found on the internet and in reference books. Items are described as carefully as possible and I include all flaws of which I am aware. While acknowledging that I am not an expert, I do learn a ton during the process of research. Any flaws should have a corresponding close up photo. If that is not present, please convo me and I will provide one, as well as any other photos which you feel necessary in order to make a purchase.
Vintage photos are made from my personal sources, some negatives, some photographs. These are items which I own and hold rights to through that ownership. Your purchase of a vintage photo will give you a modern print made at a professional print processing business. It will be the size and finish you select as listed above in the photography section.
Accepted payment methods
- Money Order
Non PayPal payments.
If we have agreed on a payment method and expected date of receipt, I will give two additional days after that expected date of receipt. If the payment has not arrived by then, the sale will be cancelled. Keeping in touch during the process will help us both to have a smooth transaction.
A shipping/handling fee is charged on all purchases unless otherwise described in the item's information. This fee includes the postage cost as well as a small amount to cover packaging and labeling materials. All items will be shipped using the most suitable and inexpensive USPS method offered. This helps keep the cost down for the buyer.
Insurance is not included in the purchase price but it is recommended. If you would like insurance, please convo me BEFORE finishing the check out and payment in order for me to send you a corrected invoice.
I do reuse boxes, mailers and packaging if appropriate.
Refunds and Exchanges
On items other than photographs, convo me to let me know what the problem is. Usually vintage items have condition issues and I do my best to explain them in my description. We'll work it out to your satisfaction.
Customer satisfaction is very important to me, I will give a refund of your purchase price, exchange or store credit within 7 days of your receipt of the item. The photograph should be insured against loss and returned in new condition. Please include your Etsy I.D. or Item numbers. Please be aware that the buyer will pay for return shipping costs. If a situation arises which I have not covered here, please convo me.
Before leaving feedback, please give me an opportunity to demonstrate my absolute commitment to your satisfaction. My goal as an Etsy seller is 100% satisfaction, your repeat business and your positive feedback. Thank you.
