Vintage Librarian

A librarian by training, I naturally love the process of acquiring, cataloging, and making things accessible to those who need or want them.

At the beginning of the "Great Recession," I lost my long-time librarian job and was tossed out into the great sea of the unemployed. After a long fruitless job search, it became crystal clear to me that I would have to make my own way in the world. But how, what, where?

I knew I wanted to do something interesting and engaging on many levels. I wanted the flexibility to be involved in my young daughter's life -- the time to volunteer in her school, shepherd her love of learning, ferry her to dance & piano, make nutritious dinners -- all the things I couldn't do while I had been working full-time with a dreadfully long commute.

Looking around me, I saw my knitting and crochet work. I saw my collections of books, textiles, decorative items, and thought, "Could there be a business here?" And so, my Etsy experience began.

Some see dust, rust, and torn pages. I see history, and the potential to use old things in new ways. I love to uncover the stories of the items I carefully collect & curate for my shop.

If you are looking for something special, let me know and I'll keep my eye out for it.


I'm also long-time practitioner of tai chi chuan, and teach the martial art at a local kung fu academy & YMCA.

Should this happen, contact me within 3 days and we can discuss a mutually satisfactory solution. I cannot pay for return postage.

Vintage merchandise is not new merchandise and you should expect your purchase to have been loved by it's previous owner. I try to describe items as accurately as possible, and provide pictures to give you a true sense of the item you are buying. I am always happy to send you additional photographs of an item before you purchase it.

Please send me a message with any questions regarding an item before you purchase it.
Payment
I accept payment directly through Etsy or via Paypal.

Cancelation Policy:
I understand that sometimes we change our minds. If you should change your mind after placing an order, please let me know right away. An order may not be canceled after it ships.

If payment is not received or arranged within 24 hours of placing your order, I reserve the right to cancel the order and relist the item.
Shipping
Orders ship within 1 - 3 business days, and often sooner, after payment clears.

Domestic Shipping: Items marked "Free Shipping" within the United States ship United States Postal Service (USPS) via First Class mail, Parcel Post, or Media Mail for books. Delivery times normally range from 3 - 8 days delivery, on average. There is an upgrade charge for USPS Express Mail service. The shipping upgrade varies depending on your location and the weight of the item(s) being shipped to you.


In most cases I can provide a tracking number which will be sent to you via Etsy along with confirmation that your item has shipped.


Insurance may be added to your order. Let me know if you would like your shipment insured before you purchase an item, and I will apply the United States Postal Service insurance rate to your order. Insurance is recommended for breakable items, or if there is a history of packages being lost or stolen in your area.

International: Packages are normally sent United States Postal Service First Class International. Delivery times vary greatly from country to country. It can take from 2 weeks to several months for an international package to reach you. If you would like your item to reach you faster, I can upgrade the shipping to Priority Mail International or Priority Mail Express. Please let me know if you would like a shipping upgrade before you make your purchase and I will adjust the shipping fee. Please note that you are responsible for any/all custom charges, and for picking up packages from your local post office should you be notified by your country's postal system to do so. I do not mark packages as gifts or misrepresent their value.

Need it sooner? Send me a message and we can work out the best way to get it you faster.

If a package is undeliverable due to an inaccurate shipping address provided by the buyer, or if a package is unclaimed by the buyer, I cannot be held responsible. The buyer will be responsible for the cost to re-ship the package or a refund will be provided (excluding shipping costs).

Shipping can be combined for multiple items. Please inquire about combine shipping prior to ordering multiple items and I will give you a shipping quote.

Information I Collect:
To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name or gift receiver’s name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (specific requests involving personal for example), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It:
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfill your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure:
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
Etsy: I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
Service providers: I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Business transfers: If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
Compliance with laws: I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.

Your Rights:
If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:
Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
