P.S. The shop’s banner is a bridge at the Town of Linn Community Nature Park in Lake Geneva, WI. It is a 160 acre nature park that was restored to oak savannas, tallgrass prairies, and pothole wetlands.

    Jim's has worked with in logistics in many different roles. He knows how to pack items that will endure the trip. He helps with buying trips as a second eye, but his favorite part is meeting people and making them laugh.

Frequently asked questions
Very Good Vintage Condition

I use the term "very good vintage condition" for pieces that are in almost new condition. Yet please remember that these items have mostly been used before; so they will have a few imperfections. Anything that is obvious will be noted in the description and/or pictures.

Good Vintage Condition

When the description uses the term "good vintage" condition; it means that it does have some flaws (and should be noted in the description). Less than perfect, but still in good shape.


We do offer refunds, but the item will have to be returned to us before the refund is completed. We do NOT pay for return shipping. Please, let us know if you have any issues, we will be glad to discuss them with you to determine an outcome. No refunds on sale items or items with an incorrect delivery address. See FAQs on Incorrect Delivery Address. Thanks.

Customer Service/Communication

We will do our best to return all messages within a 24 hours. At times we might be a little late, but have not forgotten you.

Breakage in Shipping

NOTE: Change in policy: The USPS has changed it claims requirement to having to bring in the box and broken piece to the local post office in order to file a claim on this insurance. We apologize for for this, as we know that it is not good service.

The following is the Lazy Y’s new return policy for pieces that arrive broken:
1. Please take pictures of the broken item and the box and packaging and send those to me in a message.
2. I will then file a claim for reimbursement and send you the claim number.
3. I will then ask you to take the broken piece and its packaging to your local post office for their review (remember to bring the claim number with you).
4. Notify me that this step was taken and I’ll issue a refund at that time.

What does vintage mean?

Vintage means an item is at least 20 years old or at the most 99 years old. Once it is 100 years old, you can call it an antique. Please be aware that you are purchasing a used item. We keep trying to improve our descriptions and pictures to point out chips or dents or other issues a piece may have.

Saying that, there may be small vintage wear that go unnoticed. I do go over the piece when I buy it, wash it, take its picture, write its description or weigh it. Yet still, sometimes I miss it. The right light will show scratches on dinner plates for example. One time, you could see a crack in a piece of pottery in the photograph that you could not see when looking at it.

Thanks for dropping by.

Discounts on Multiple Sales

I can offer you discount coupons on multiple listing purchases in the following sections:

Women's Jewelry
Men's Jewelry
Holiday Jewelry
Precious Moments
Vintage Toys and Games

Discounts will take into consideration the cost of the pieces and how many listings are purchased so I cannot offer a blanket percentage. Please message me if you going to purchase more than one listing in these sections.

If an item is on sale, the discount coupons will not be taken into consideration (by the Lazy Y or by the Etsy system).

And, it never hurts to ask what is our best price. Sometimes we have to let things go and sometimes we cannot not go lower.

Local Delivery Requests

We do not offer any customer pick up as we are online only. Kane County IL residents can message about a drop off. We do charge a few depending on mileage. Message us before the purchase for quote on delivery.

Porch Pirates

The Lazy Y is not responsible for packages being stolen on doorsteps. If the USPS has marked the item as delivered but it has been stolen, the shop cannot reimburse you for the piece. Contact us and we can reach out to the post office on our side of things.

Incorrect Shipping Address

If a purchase is made with an incorrect shipping address (either expired forwarding address and/or other reasons) the Lazy Y charges a re-delivery fee. Once the package has been sent back to the shop by the post office, you will be notified to purchase a new shipping label. There are NO refunds on these items. Once the shipping costs are covered; we will ship the package out and notify you. IF you can catch that you forgot to change the delivery address, you can contact me and I can still make the address change before purchasing the shipping label. I'd be glad to help out, if possible. Thank you for understanding.
