Announcement   I ship on Saturdays only during the school year. I simply can't get to the post office during the week due to my heavy work schedule.. In the summer months, I go twice a week--if I make a sale, that is.

Muffin of Doom sells all things Vintage from several decades. Although I don't prefer a particular decade over another, I do find myself drooling over pieces of vintage specifically from the 1960's and 1970's. What I don't keep for myself, I sell here

This is a hobby of mine and not full time enterprise, but I do respond in a timely manner since I am on my computer all the time. I make only a small profit every year, and I use that profit to purchase items for my classroom.

I'm a high school teacher in California. I love my job, and I really do enjoy teaching kids--even in the current economic climate in California. I do this to supplement my income and pay for many of the materials I buy for my low income students. Some of the things I purchased last year included a Mexican fiesta for all of my tenth graders (70 students) and a Victorian Tea Party for all of my ninth graders (140). I have also purchased DVD's, bulletin board materials and other equipment for my classroom.

I also sell vintage items on etsy because there's a special feeling I get when I find a beautiful item that has seen more years than I or the buyer have. I feel as though I am giving some classic items of clothing new life by finding new homes for them. I also think to myself when I find a beautiful vintage item, "Oh yeah, I remember quality."

Again, please feel free to email me if you have questions, or would like to comment on any of the things I have listed. Thanks!

The shipping takes at least a week. This shop only ships on Saturdays.

My shipping policy is clearly stated under "SHIPPING POLICY". I am not a regular business, but a teacher who tries to make extra cash to support my classroom spending. I do not ship midweek during the school year due to a busy schedule. She purchased after post office hours on a Saturday and it was sent the following Saturday. Please do not rate me on your error.

About

Full time teacher / part time vintage hunter

Use coupon code SPRING15 on purchases of $40 or more and save 15%. Coupon expires June 21.

My number one job is teaching literature at the high school level. I love my work. I work with 175 to 210 kids every year. They are from different backgrounds, but what unifies them all is a need for a dedicated teacher who can nurture and develop them into life-long learners.

With the budget crisis, it has become more difficult to get the items my students need in the classroom. I use this site as well as donors choose.org to find and purchase items for my classroom.

Things I recently purchased with the small profit I've made include scissors, paper, glue sticks, ethernet cables, flash drives, spiral notebooks, kleenex, chairs, books and more. Right now I am saving for a new classroom projector!

    I'm passionate about two things: teaching and traveling. I sell vintage to support my classroom with extra texts, videos, eleven students to Ireland, the United Kingdom and Paris!

Shipping
I ship first class or priority mail depending on the item. If you would like insurance or a tracking number, you will need to email me with such a request. I prefer that people with less than 5 ratings and under 100% buy insurance as well, but I don't require it. My price for shipping is general and includes handling and packaging as well. I've under-estimated and over-estimated in the past, and provided refunds when appropriate. Please email me if you are not happy with shipping prices, and I will do my best to accommodate your needs.

I ship on Saturdays only during the school year. I simply can't get to the post office during the week. In the summer months, I go twice a week--if I make a sale, that is.
Refunds and Exchanges
I will accept returns on items if noted in the description of that item. Should I decide to accept a return, I require that it be returned at your cost for shipping within 14 days of the receipt of that item. I will then refund the purchase price minus etsy, paypal and shipping fees. I will hear your concerns if the item is not as described or looks significantly different than the photos provided.
Additional policies and FAQs
Items are described thoroughly. I will include odors and stains or let you know if the item needs to be cleaned. If the item is hand washable, I will wash it myself and line dry it. If it is not, I will not have it dry cleaned, but will note if there appears to be something that blemishes it in anyway. Please email me if you have questions.
