Announcement   I absolutely adore collecting! I have always gravitated towards the unique, old-fashioned and just plain funky. Kitchenware especially has caught my fancy and as a total bonus to customers, it's easy to ship! Etsy is a wonderful outlet as a seller and I am super excited to share my finds.
I have been designing and making my own creations for years, (jewelry, soap, furniture re-finishing sewing and knitting) and am in the process of fine tuning my process of creating beautiful, functional and useful products.
For now, I am busy combing estate sales, junk shops (full of great stuff that is so not junk), Craigslist and auctions to find neat pieces to offer up to you.
Please let me know if there is anything that you are specifically looking for but just can't seem to find. I never know what is going to turn up in my travels and I might just be able to obtain it for you.

Happy shopping!

Item arrived damaged and I had to file a claim with USPS to get my money back (and I only got some of it back). Packaging was kind of a mess inside and the planter bowl was a bit smaller than in the photo. I've ordered plants on Amazon before and they're always packaged in a way that keeps the plants protected and in tact. The plants in this box were packaged loosely and all fell out of the planter, so when USPS threw the box around, they were damaged. Overall, this was a frustrating experience. Meg was pleasant and responsive, but it would have been nice of her to just refund my money and file the claim herself. I was hoping she would make an exception to her 'no refunds' policy but that wasn't the case. Won't be ordering any more plants on Etsy!

It's a shame when a resolution can't be reached with a buyer but when there are inconsistencies and falsehoods in a review, it is necessary to respond. Dave was polite in our correspondence but unfortunately decided that a refund by USPS and offer of new plants, soil etc. wasn't enough. All packages are packed carefully and insurance is included if shipped via Priority. In this case, the item inside was damaged due to poor handling which sadly does happen occasionally. Planter was as described but damaged in transit, hence to need to file a claim with USPS. I am not sure buyer quite understands the concept of fully reading all shop policies and that by purchasing, a buyer accepts a tacit understanding and agreement of that shops policies. Resorting to claiming it wasn't as described/not packaged well, is false.

Safely packaged. Arrived here fast. It looks amazing and I can't wait to give it to my partner's mother for Christmas. If there are more vintage pieces from the Philippines in your etsy shop, I'll definitely purchase some to have in my own home. Salamat (thank you)!

I will combine shipping of multiple items and price will depend on actual weight/size/measurements of shipping all items.

All sales are final unless description of item is found to be incorrect. Due to the nature of items in my shop, most are not absolutely perfect as I usually deal in vintage, antique and/or pre-owned pieces and none should be assumed to be flawless unless otherwise stated. After all, that is part of the charm!

Priority USPS shipping does include $50.00 of insurance. If you would like more, I am more than happy to add for an additional cost.
Refunds and Exchanges
All sales are final. If you are worried about breakage, I recommend adding insurance ( if you are not shipping Priority) to shipping cost.
