Announcement   Note: please take a moment and read my shop policies. I try and avoid item returns, by working with potential customers BEFORE an item is purchased, to make sure something will fit (clothing), rather than have customer request a return due to not fitting. . My "all sales final" is not written in stone, (I understand getting stuck with something you cannot wear!) ...the customer DOES have the added cost of return shipping, which today, is substantial (refund is original sale price plus original shipping cost) Thankyou for your understanding:-)

Welcome to my e-shoppe:-) I've dealt in vintage clothing and goods since 1975, specializing in men's and women's vintage clothing from the 1930s through the 1980s, plus vintage jewelry, belts, sunglasses, shoes, hats, neckties and more! I also love and carry in my shop vintage home decor, pottery, paintings and textiles. Vintage fabrics, I adore.
~~~~~~
I am trying, as of late June, to try and incorporate the Etsy shipping based on boxed weight, for US and International customers. SOME of my listings are not yet updated, please just write and I will help by editing in the information, or providing an exact quote based on your location. Thanks for your patience! :-)

Please use ZOOM, for best viewing, and go straight to a "Department" if you are looking for a specific item, because category searching speeds your shopping experience!:-)

This seller had 3 of my Great Grandmother's original paintings. She was so wonderful during this transaction and even lowered the price out of kindness since she was thankful that the paintings went to family members. She made an extra effort to have them shipped that day and I was so thankful to receive the paintings in perfect condition. What a fantastic seller on Etsy and a great experience.

About

Finding Just The Right Owner

I've always loved older things,,,came from a long line of artists and collectors, and archivists, preservationists...it's in the blood as they say. It is also very GREEN to recycle and not be buying something new because it's wonderful,...used is just fine, with me.
I love handmade things just as much as vintage or antique items, possibly more, because someone touched it,,,brought it to life from their heart and hands!...my Grandma was the epitome of a craftswoman..sewing, quilting, writing, photography, knitting, rug making, cooking...come to think of it, so was my Mom:-)who was a lifelong artist. I believe that much of what you ARE, is passed down, imprinted. From my Mom, I received music, love of color. From my Pa, I inherited my singing voice.
When I'm not finding just the right owner for something that caught my eye, I'm strumming a guitar, or uke, and composing a song. I can be found as cinderellalifestyle at youtube, sharing my musical heart.
I began selling vintage clothing and decor in 1975 , at flea markets and shows, and have had retail vintage stores in the past, as well. I began selling on the internet in 1999 at Ebay where I conducted about 2000+ sales under one business from '99 to 2003, and another 2000 sales from 2003 to present. Another good number of sales and happy customers have blessed me here at Etsy, (800+ wow!!) since I started out. If you click my feedback, or the number of sales, you can peruse the sorts of things I find to sell, as etsy keeps a history of seller's "sold items". Things you find in my shop, appealed to me, and that is why they are here:-)
Etsy to me, is like a breath of fresh air. And I honestly feel that the window of time a seller is allowed for a posting is critical to selling it, especially considering the millions of items for sale online! Thank you Etsy, for being out of the ordinary, and fun, and practical!
...bottom line, it's the Etsy shopper who makes selling and the work that goes into it, golden. My customers are always special, and unique. My sincere thanks for your patronage, and support.

    Just another soul who loves old things, I always have. Love color, organic fabrics, handmade things. Etsy allows me to care for my family while at home (where I have to be) I also feel good about re-use, recycle, upscale recreations.

Thankyou for visiting my e-shoppe! :-) I specialize in vintage clothing for men and women, vintage fashion accessories, home decor and textiles. I've dealt in vintage goods since 1975, first wearing vintage in 1972 or so..:-)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I like the things I sell, something about the item appealed to me, first. I also like happy customers, so I try to find things that are in very good condition. I mention and describe any flaws in honesty (which can be inherent in vintage used, preowned items) . I communicate with my customers via emails that are generated by Etsy, and I check my mail, every day. Mailings often go out to the mail, same day as purchase!

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Buy with Apple Pay
  • Pay with Sofort
  • Pay with iDeal
  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
Payment
I accept both Etsy direct checkout and Paypal. Your item is often shipped on the same day as purchased,..when possible. Otherwise the following day. Saturday purchases too, altho SOME Saturday sales are mailed Mondays as I must travel out of town for Saturday mailings.
Shipping
I gladly mail overseas,,,however my sales have dropped away completely after the last "Rate Hike" by the USPS.

Please write if you want a quote based on your location. OR if you need it FAST,,!!
I work quickly to make your deadlines, adjust to express if needed.

For US customers, I try to save you money when possible. If parcel post or first class are options, I will offer them automatically. Priority is used for most mailings. Because shipping is so costly now, I must enter in the higher price not knowing where you live! A two pound parcel shipped within my State is much less than a CA to NY 2 pound mailing, for example! Shipping depends on size, weight, distance.

INTERNATIONAL mailings must include the price paid and be properly invoiced to arrive safe to you. The buyer is liable for your countries customs duties whatever they may be.
Refunds and Exchanges
I PREFER "No Returns, all sales final", simply because I lack time to carry out returns, and the buyer is faced with covering the cost back to me, out of pocket! (refund is item plus original ship cost only).

My Item return policy RULES: I must be notified upon your receipt and dissatisfaction, so please email me right away. The Item MUST BE TURNED around in the mail within 3 days of your receipt of item, and MUST be returned in the same condition it left me in!! Not worn, etc (Date delivered is recorded on the USPS tracking info right here at Etsy) I don't want to hear from you, 1-2-3 weeks after a transaction, requesting a refund.

For a mutual happy transaction please request additional information BEFORE you purchase the item, because I'd rather go the extra mile and have you NOT buy something that does not fit, or is not as expected. And please read carefully, the description!! Buyer must pay out of pocket for shipping expense back to seller, in case of true unhappiness with order.....in a case where I truly overlooked a substantial flaw,...I may also reimburse the return ship cost. I try and inspect all vintage items carefully and photograph fully, to avoid this sort of thing.
Additional policies and FAQs
Sometimes I'm in a hurry listing many items, and I fail to include precise measurements, and details. PLEASE, just write and inquire if I have left something out.., I'm happy to dash and get additional and helpful information to you! thanks for your patience, in advance!:-)
