This is that shop you just had to come back to...

Down a narrow cobblestone street, in a beloved, ever-ancient, ever-modern city, there are all those sweet little shops where you just have to browse everytime you visit. There’s a small bookshop, a tearoom and a tiny shop containing very sweet vintage items. That’s my shop, Mirabella Morello and I am just now parting the lace curtains on the door, letting you know the shop is now open. I am so happy to know that you window-shopped here last night on your way to dinner and happier still that you've come back today! Welcome!

(I hope you left room in your suitcase. There is much to fall in love with here...vintage flatware,china and glassware, dishware sets, sweet Rempel animals, vintage buttons, books, even vintage supplies for your art!!!)

Mirabella Morello isn't actually a real vintage shop, but I wish it was and I dream of a time when I might be spending my days in a tiny shop, selling lovely vintage items. In reality, my shop is a collection of items, most of which came from my mother's and great aunt's extensive collections of beautiful vintage china, silver, porcelain, dainty handerchiefs and books (with a few items from my collections thrown in).

I love beautiful vintage items, to cherish, to keep, to give as a special gift or possibly to be used as that one perfect piece in that art project you are working on (I love the idea of something being given a new life in a creative project)!

Keep checking back for more lovely items, many of which belonged to members of my family and were passed on to me.

    I've loved vintage items since the first time my parents took me to a flea market! More recently, I've been lucky enough to inherit many lovely items and I just don't have room for them all! Lucky you! I've put them in this shop, just for you!

Hello! You might recognize me from my shop The Gossamer Tearoom (gossamer531.etsy.com). This is my new shop, where you will be able to find all sorts of beautiful and fun vintage items!

Here at Mirabella Morello, you will find all manner of vintage oddments and objects of kitsch, all at reasonable prices! Visiting here is something like exploring in your favorite auntie's attic! You will find so many things here that you had no idea that you wanted but now you realize you can't live without!

By the way, in case you were wondering, Mirabella Morello is not an Italian film star from the 30's, as you might expect, but a nod to my obsession with food and food terminology. "Mirabelle" refers to a French plum and "Morello" refers to an Italian cherry!

Returns and exchanges
If you wish to return something, please contact me within a week of having received your order and convo me in advance so we can make arrangements for its return. If you have any problems with your order (item is received damaged, item has not yet arrived, etc.) please contact me as soon as possible, so that I can work with you and correct the problem. Your happiness with your item makes me happy in return!
I gladly accept Direct Checkout, Etsy Gift Cards and PayPal for payment of items bought here. You do not need to have a PayPal account in order to pay by this method. You may enter your credit card in the section provided and they do the rest. The Seller would never see your credit card number or any of your important financial information. It is very convenient. Per Etsy's rule, all purchases must be paid for at the time the transaction is made (you must order and pay at the same time). All orders shipped to addresses within the state of Maine will be charged 5% Maine State Sales Tax.
I ship via USPS First Class with delivery confirmation, using recycled shipping materials as much as possible. For books and magazines, I ship via USPS Media Mail. If you would like me to upgrade shipping on any item, just convo me so that we can arrange for payment of the additional charge. For items priced $15 or more, I will also insure the item. I am generally able to ship out packages the same day or on the next day of your having ordered.

Obviously, orders placed on the weekends will be shipped on Monday. I will contact you in the event of my not being able to ship within the originally quoted time. Please feel free to contact me if you need something to go out more quickly and I can quote your shipping with FedEx. I have made every attempt to calculate postage as fairly as possible. In cases where you are over-charged for your postage, any amount over $2.00 that you have over-paid will be refunded promptly upon shipping and I will notify you in this event (Your total shipping cost will include Delivery Confirmation or Tracking and insurance, if applicable).

*Please see below for Revised International Shipping Policy as of 6/25/13*
I have had to estimate shipping charges to take into account the range of prices to ship to different countries. I promptly refund any over-payment of shipping charges more than $2.00 upon shipment of your order. Alternately, you may convo me and ask that I quote shipping charges for your country and set up a reserved listing for you. All buyers are responsible for any customs, duties charges, VAT or other various customs charges they may incur upon delivery in their country of destination.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am always happy to accommodate my customers with custom reserved listings. Reserved listings will be held for 5 days (or possibly more, just ask) and then payment must be made in full or the items will be returned to stock.

All items have come from a smoke-free, pet-free home.

Any questions about something I haven't mentioned? Please feel free to convo me. I'm always happy to answer questions, take special orders, make custom listings or just to say "Hello!"
