About

It all started with a green glass Brody vase I found in a kitchen cupboard above the refrigerator.

I don't remember how old I was, definitely still single digits, but somewhere along the line I started collecting old glass vases. I loved the colors, shapes, and textured designs. I would ride my bike out to a large weedy utility corridor at the far end of my housing development and pick oodles of wildflowers to bring home and put in my vases. More than once, a yellow spider hitch-hiked back with the goldenrod, or tiny green insects hid underneath the white blooms of Queen Anne's lace. I didn't mind.

Today, I skip the wildflowers, mostly because weedy utility corridors don't exist in the urban environment where I live. But I still collect the vases. The greener the glass, the better. I have spent years educating myself on the histories of the companies that mass-produced the vases, and my collecting interests have spilled over to include pyrex, milk glass, and anything kitchen or serving related.

I also have a thing for scarves. Old scarves, designer scarves, bright bold scarves, silk scarves. I can't say where this fascination comes from, I have no idea. No one in my family ever wore them, none were ever passed down to me, and I don't wear them myself. But I absolutely love digging through piles of them and finding the perfect mint condition Oscar de la Renta silk shawl or psychedelic Vera Neumann scarf!

A lot of time is spent getting my items squeaky clean before I list them for sale. Soaking, scrubbing, tooth-brushing, oxycleaning, washing, drying, ironing, and then sometimes doing it all again. It is a lot of work, but in the end it is all worth when I get notes from my customers saying I had the perfect piece to finish their incomplete set of dishes they inherited from Grandma, or I had the exact vase they broke at Aunt LuLu's house last week, or they finally found the Totes Rainscarf gift for mom because she loves them so much.

Payment
I accept Direct Checkout and PayPal. Items will be mailed upon completion of payment. Orders may be cancelled at my discretion, please communicate with me immediately if your order needs to be changed or cancelled.
Shipping
My shipping prices are based on the weight of the packaged item, and the size of the envelope or box. Etsy's calculated shipping rates will combine shipping for you in the check-out process. I purchase all of my shipping labels directly through etsy.

I will ship anywhere! All items have calculated shipping rates set up for the check-out process.

My vintage scarves will be placed in a zip lock bag and mailed in a flat manila envelope or bubble mailer.

China and glassware will be packaged firmly with bubble wrap, air bladders, styrofoam peanuts, or something similar, and mailed in a sturdy box. I double box when necessary.

I reuse mailing material all the time. You will probably receive a second or third generation envelope, bubble mailer, or box. It may have scratch outs, layers of labels, and perhaps some really interesting stamps from a previous journey.

If you are buying your item as a gift, and want it mailed in a fresh new envelope, let me know! I can do that. I can also wrap in tissue, tie pretty ribbons, and include to/from cards at no additional cost.
Refunds and Exchanges
If for any reason you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, contact me within 7 days to discuss the issue. If the item arrives damaged, or you feel it is not as described, please be prepared to send pictures so I may submit an insurance claim with the postal service.
Additional policies and FAQs
4 cats live at my house. Although they are technically outdoor cats, they do occasionally sneak in and sprawl out on the bed. They are not allowed to bring home friends, and they are not allowed to smoke.

All of my vintage scarves have been machine washed, dried, ironed, and then immediately stored in zip lock bags. Stains or damage are noted in the listings.

All of my China and glassware has been washed in the sink, by hand, with soapy water. Dishwashers can ruin vintage glassware. Chips or cracks are noted in the listings.
