A world without art and vintage is just like living at Walmart

There are so many cool and crazy things in this world, and it makes me happy. I like to scour the corners of the world for interesting things. We do not want to live in the world where the Walmart and Target Overlords dictate how we decorate and live. Full disclosure, I love those stores, and IKEA too. But their items fall apart and get messed up quickly. At GotchaChaCha, we have items that have survived for decades, adding the element of history to your space.

I love books and paper and cats and folk art and my family, and all those things find a place in my store and on my instagram, @GotchachachaVintage.

Peacefully living in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, with my 2 daughter, 2 cats and commercial artist husband of 20 years.

All shipping is done through the United States Postal Service. (Doing my best to keep it in business).

I would like to save everyone some money, so if you give me your address I can try to figure out less expensive shipping cost, OR you could just use the figure on the listing which is USPS flat rate priority, which is very good and reliable.

Artwork is thoroughly and carefully wrapped in green bubble wrap and butcher paper. It should be good to go, but glass makes me nervous, so the cost of Insurance on items framed under glass is included. You can add Insurance to other items at your own expense.

Delivery confirmation (through the USPS) is only available in the US, and can only be used for shipping in the US. It is a good idea, is relatively inexpensive (19 cents if you purchase your postage online via pay pal).

I ship internationally and buyer is responsible for any duties, customs and taxes levied by their individual countries.

Items are wrapped in bubble wrap, butcher paper, and vintage ribbon, so I think it is ready to be sent as a gift. We can make more elaborate gift wrapping if requested.

I will expedite shipping at appropriate rates, if requested.
