About MarksVintageShoppe

Sales 1,159
On Etsy since 2014

I love buying and selling vintage, antique, and unique stuff.

My story is that I got involved in selling vintage items almost by accident. When I got married, my father in law had a hobby of buying items and reselling them. He kind of took me under his wing, showed me the ropes, etc. and now - Here I am. I love going to estate sales, local rummages, and all town rummage sales to find stuff at a good price so I can pass along a great deal to someone else - YOU. We are now also set up in the Clinton, IL - Clinton Antique Mall in Booth 12 with some great deals for everyone. Please stop by if you happen to be going through Central IL. Thanks - Mark

Hello and welcome to my Etsy Shop - Marks Vintage Shoppe. Let me tell you a little bit about me. I have been selling stuff online for 15 years. I have sold hundreds of item on Ebay and Ecrater under the name of mrcobaltblue. I have 100% customer rating and satisfaction on both sites. You can check my ratings on either site if you wish.

My philosophy on selling is to buy items at a low price so that I can offer them to YOU at a LOW PRICE. Most of the items I sell are unique and hard to find vintage and/or antique items. Please browse my shop. In it you will find old bottles, tools, advertising, jars, old books and magazines, vintage cutlery, antique glassware, etc.

If you have a question about an item you can email me through the Etsy contact button and/or email me at - mrcobaltblue79 [!at] yahoo.com

Additionally - If you buy more than one item from my shop - I will be very happy to calculate one exact shipping price for the weigh of all your items based on your zip code. This will SAVE you a TON of money on shipping (and I LOVE to save people money).

FINALLY - ALL the items I sell are guaranteed to be authentic and/or genuine vintage and antique treasures. THIS IS MY PROMISE TO YOU - I will NEVER knowingly sell an item that is a knock off, fake, or reproduction. It makes my BLOOD BOIL to walk through antique malls or to browse the internet and see dealers selling fake jadeite, fruit jars, dazey churns, etc as original antique items to unsuspecting folks.

Returns and exchanges

Returns and exchange details
My refund policy is generally - No Refunds unless there are some relevant extenuating circumstances. I sell old, antique, and vintage items and the terms of sale are - Items are sold in "as is" and "used" condition . I ALWAYS try to provide good closeup pictures and very accurate descriptions of the items I list so that no one who buys an item is surprised by color, condition, etc.
Payment
Acceptable forms of payment are Etsy Direct Checkout, PayPal, OR if you would like to mail me a Cashier’s Check, Money Order, or Personal Check, I will also accept those.
Shipping
I will generally ship an item the next business day and always within two business days. I ship items via the United States Post Office or Fed Ex Ground. The buyer of an item agrees to pay the shipping price of the item.

I don't believe in making money off of shipping so if there is a large difference ($2.00 or more) between the shipping you pay and the shipping price I am charged, I will refund it back to you.

If you buy more than one item from my shop - I will be very happy to calculate one exact shipping price for the weigh of all your items based on your zip code. This will SAVE you a TON of money on shipping (and I LOVE to save people money).
Additional policies and FAQs
If you are looking for a specific VINTAGE Item - Let me know and I will try to find it for you. I go to tons of sales and have a lot of contacts. Thanks - Mark

Frequently asked questions
Do I or Will I Combine Shipping With Multiple Items?

YES - I will gladly combine your items together into one package to save you money on the shipping charges.

Will I Refund Shipping Overages?

YES - I will refund any shipping overcharges of more than $1.50 back to your card either through Etsy Checkout or through Paypal. When selling and shipping vintage items, it can be hard to provide an exact shipping cost in the list so I have to estimate high. Not To Worry - As previously stated, overages over $1.50 will be promptly refunded back to you.

Do I Ship Internationally?

I'm sorry but at this time I do NOT ship internationally.
