About

“Nostalgia - its delicate, but potent. Teddy told me that in Greek nostalgia literally means 'the pain from an old wound.' It’s a twinge in your heart far more powerful than memory alone. This device isn’t a spaceship, it’s a time machine. It goes backwards, and forwards… it takes us to a place where we ache to go again. It’s not called the wheel, it’s called the carousel. It let’s us travel the way a child travels - around and around, and back home again, to a place where we know are loved.”
-Don Draper from "Mad Men"

I've always felt a strong sense of nostalgia for the past, even for times I haven't experienced myself. I've always been curious about the history and stories behind all of the old objects I find. Growing up, my parents took me to flea markets, antique auctions, and estate sales all over the world. At a very young age, I began collecting Snoopy items and Archie comic books, but then I found my true collecting love: Vintage Barbies from the late 1950s - early 1970s. My vintage Barbies are my favorite collection, and I am always hoping to add more of them to my shelves.

When I'm not cruising the aisles of my favorite thrift stores, you can find me making art of all kinds, listening to uncool music, and watching "The Walking Dead."

I'm so happy to share my vintage treasures with you here on Etsy! Thank you for stopping by my shop.

Shipping
All orders will ship out within 5 days from when your order was placed. Usually, I try ship it the morning after you order because I want you to get your stuff fast! All orders are shipped via USPS, and every package will have tracking to ensure that your goodies will get to you safely and with no problems.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to be 100% satisfied with your order, so there is any problem with your order, please let me know as soon as possible (within 14 days from original order date), and we can work out an exchange or refund (minus all shipping costs). The item must be returned in UNUSED condition. Please bear in mind that I am just one person, not a store, so please carefully review the specifics about the item you are purchasing before ordering. Ask any additional questions about the item PRIOR to ordering, and that will make things easier for both or us! :)
Additional policies and FAQs
CAN I ASK A QUESTION ABOUT AN ITEM I'D LIKE TO PURCHASE?
Absolutely! I'd be happy to answer any and all questions. Please ask BEFORE purchasing the item, if possible.

ARE YOUR PRICES NEGOTIABLE?
No. Please don't try to bargain down my prices, especially if you have already placed an order in my shop. It's awkward for both parties involved, and I do my best to keep my prices low so that you will get a good value from my items. I simply cannot afford to discount my items any further, and I hope you'll understand.
