One December

I am Michele, a creator and a collector of cool vintage items! I live in Connecticut with my wonderful family, our Newfie, and two overly-friendly cats. I love this location and the changing seasons, especially in October. We live in the country, but are only one hour from all the hustle and bustle of New York City. I have a terrific husband/best friend and I'm a homeschooling Mom to four fabulous kids! They're awesome and they keep me very busy! I have a BA in Anthropology and Sociology and love to travel, both near and far.

In my spare time I like treasure-hunting for unique vintage items, trying new eateries, practicing Pilates, enjoying the outdoors, beachcoming, quadding, hiking, camping, and taking walks. I also love nature, traveling, thrifting, cycling, spending days wandering the streets of NYC, and rustic things. We are always dreaming and scheming up new adventures for the future. I am also a fitness and healthy food fanatic, making time each day for my health and happiness. :)

My home is an old, very rustic converted barn with a backyard sprinkled with goats and chickens. My walls are cluttered with rusty tools and could pass as an antique shop. I love my house, its huge cozy fireplace, and all of its amazing uniqueness! My barn is decorated to match the feel, which is why I am drawn to antiques and old, rusty, vintage items. If I find something I like and don't have a spot for it in my home, it ends up in my shop!! Vintage and rustic items are unique and perfectly imperfect!

When I was young I was always rummaging through flea markets and tag sales, creating, and crafting. Even more, I was outside getting dirty, experiencing and enjoying the natural world and collecting the many unique elements of nature. Now, I'm outside just as much, collecting just as much, and I think about what I can do with my finds. I appreciate eco friendly, upcycled and natural materials. I believe in reduce, reuse and recycle. This is often evident in the packaging materials I use for shipping! ;)

After finding myself home with the kids, I had the desire to work from home so I can be present while they are young, homeschool them, and financially contribute to the family. It is a tricky balance, but so worth it! Etsy has opened my eyes to a whole new world of possibilities I never knew existed! It is so wonderful! I still get excited with each sale or every time someone "favorites" one of my items or shop. It makes me happy that someone else out there actually likes what I'm doing! Etsy is such a wonderful community to be a part of! I'm so glad that I get to do what I enjoy and be home with my kids! I also love this opportunity to connect with people all over the world!

Accepted payment methods

Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
Your happiness is my priority! Convo me to discuss individual issues if you are unhappy with your purchase. If you should require a return, payment will be refunded to your PayPal account or through Etsy's Direct Checkout, less the cost of seller's fees (Etsy, PayPal). Shipping costs will remain the responsibility of the buyer, as well as return shipping fees. Please consider this prior to purchasing - view photos and ask any questions you may have!

Please convo me with any issues prior to leaving feedback. Once feedback has been left, a refund will not be granted.

Custom personalized coasters cannot be returned.

Please convo me before purchasing with any specific questions regarding items, condition, shipment, etc..
Payment is accepted through Etsy's Direct Checkout and PayPal, which include all major credit cards.

Upon checkout, simply choose the form of payment you'd like to use to complete your purchase and follow the steps as prompted!

Once payment is received (e-checks through PayPal take several (typically 3-5) days to clear), your item will be shipped out as quickly as possible! Payment is due at the time of purchase and your package will be shipped after payment has cleared.

Items can be reserved for up to 48 hours, if necessary. Please convo me to request an item reservation.
All orders will be shipped out as soon as possible (always aiming for next day for vintage), and as indicated on the listing's shipping time. I ship whichever way is cheapest, always through USPS, and including delivery confirmation.

Packages under 13 ounces will be shipped via First Class Mail. Coaster orders will be shipped USPS Priority Mail (2-3 day shipping). Flat rate boxes are used whenever they are most economical, otherwise items ship USPS Parcel Post or First Class Mail, whenever possible. All packages include delivery confirmation. If you need your item (especially custom coasters) by a specific date, or within a relatively short time period, please convo me BEFORE you order, to make sure it is possible, and I will do my best to accommodate. Coasters ship Flat Rate Priority Mail via USPS, including tracking and insurance.

Tracking is included on all shipped packages. One December is not responsible for lost or misdelivered packages (in addition to slow shipment - sometimes delays occur during shipment!). Once an item is shipped, it is out of my hands and is the responsibility of USPS. This is why a tracking number/delivery confirmation is provided. International packages do not include tracking, though I keep all USPS receipts as proof of shipment. I do not offer refunds for items "not received" in these cases. Please consider before purchasing. I always try to ship as quickly as possible, but your patience is greatly appreciated!

In an effort to conserve paper and reduce waste, a transaction slip/receipt may not be included in your package. All of the purchase information will remain online for future reference. If you would like to receive one in your package, no problem! Just let me know and I will certainly include it! .

In an effort to be kind to our environment, One December reuses shipping materials. This means that whenever possible, I package items using recycled materials (boxes, newspaper, etc.), in an effort to conserve and save the environment. This may be evident in your purchase! Thank you for your participation!

Shipping costs are specified in each listing. On most items, combined shipping is possible! Please convo me first, in order to combine shipping! I do ship internationally! If your country is not listed, convo me!! I will combine shipping when possible - if you'd like to purchase multiple items and would like to save on shipping, simply convo me prior to purchasing.

Each item will be carefully packaged and items over $50 will typically include insurance. If you would like to purchase insurance for your item and it is not included, please just convo me first!

Damage: On very rare occasion, damage can occur to a package. If you are concerned and would like to purchase insurance for your package prior to shipment, please convo me first. Thanks!

Your item will be shipped to the address provided through ETSY. Please make sure your shipping address is where you would like your package sent before you make your purchase! Otherwise, please tell me where you would like it sent at the time of purchase! I try to ship right away...please don't wait until it's too late!

If you are local and would like to save on shipping, convo me before you purchase!

I do ship internationally. Convo me for specific quotes if your location is not included in a listing. I will typically ship to most countries, but sometimes, due to time restrictions, high cost, or damage issues, not all items can be shipped internationally. Please note that international shipping does not always include tracking or delivery confirmation. I do save all of my USPS postal receipts and customs forms as shipment verification. Shipping to countries outside of the US can often take several weeks; this depends on the USPS delivery system, customs delays, etc.. 3-4 weeks is often typical, however, up to 8-9 weeks is possible, especially during busy times, such as the holiday season. Once I have shipped an item, the time frame in which it reaches you is out of my hands! Thanks for your patience! All taxes, etc., are the responsibility of the buyer.

As always, FREE SHIPPING on all prints purchased in my shop (any size)!

A small additional fee may be added to the actual shipping cost in order to cover handling fees. Thanks!


COASTERS: All orders are handmade per order. Please be patient when placing a custom order and allow up to 1 to 2 weeks for delivery. Coasters are always shipped using USPS Priority Mail, including tracking and insurance. If you need your item in a rush, please convo me PRIOR to ordering to be sure it will be possible and also upgrade your shipping method, if necessary.
Additional policies and FAQs
Purchasing from One December is an agreement that you have read and comply with the shop's policies.

I am very grateful to all of my customers! My goal is customer satisfaction! If you have any problems or concerns with your purchase after you have received it, or are for any reason unhappy, please convo me and allow me the chance to fix the problem! I'll always try to resolve any issues before bad feedback is left! I truly appreciate each and every buyer! Please keep in mind that my reputation and livelihood is based on your feedback! Thank you!

If you'd like to contact me, please do so through Etsy's convo system. I do not regularly check my email regarding Etsy, and many emails go to spam. I also prefer to communicate through Etsy convos in order to keep records (both for myself and Etsy customer service) all in one place for easy referral.

If you need your purchase rushed or within a particular time frame, especially custom-made coasters, please convo me PRIOR to ordering to be sure it is possible and so I am aware. I may have a large number of orders at any time and tend to complete them in the order in which they were received. Every set of coasters is handmade after the order has been placed and takes some time to complete.

I observe the right to cancel an order at any point in time and for any reason I feel necessary. Particularly in transactions where the buyer has no previous purchase history or feedback, or in the case of international shipment.

New items are added regularly! Keep checking back to see fresh and chic décor!



Vintage items are described and photographed as honestly and clearly as possible in each listing, but please keep in mind there may be some wear and signs of age from over the years! They are sold as is. Some items may be in need of a light cleaning or polishing. I do my best to thoroughly photograph and describe each item in the listing, including any blemishes, but vintage items tend to be perfectly imperfect, as they are at least 20 years old. In most cases, light surface scratching or minor blemishes may be present, adding vintage character. Please keep this in mind when purchasing vintage - the items are not new.

Please convo me if you have any specific questions and feel free to make me a reasonable offer on any vintage items!



Coasters are made to order and may take several days or even weeks to complete, depending on backorder (it is typically several days). If you need your coasters rushed, please convo me prior to ordering.

Coasters are hand painted and made to order. Feel free to convo me with custom requests, as I enjoy custom work. Together, we will discover if your vision is possible for me to create! Custom sized sets are also available - if you would like to order a larger or smaller number of coasters in your set than what is listed, just ask!

They are made of natural tumbled marble. This is a natural stone and contains many variations in shape and color (grays and beiges), including pits, small holes, textures, etc.. All pieces are hand chosen by me - I prefer variety and natural character. Please be aware of this before ordering and be sure you also appreciate this rustic look! Every coaster will be different, as they are hand painted and the stone varies. Your coasters will be completely unique! They are very rustic coasters. I work with the natural stone's beautiful imperfections rather than against it.

The coasters are backed by four small felt pads to protect furniture. They are made using all-weather acrylic paint and are waterproof. I have been using a set in my home for many years, and have not experienced wear to the long-lasting paint! They can be wiped clean, but are not dishwasher safe.

There are several paint colors available - black, brown, red, blue, and others may be available. Please convo me if you are interested in any others!

I use several fonts (different fonts for different types of personalization). The font pictured in a listing may vary from the one you receive on your coasters. Please convo me about this ahead of time if you have any questions regarding your personal set!


If your purchase is a gift, let me know! I can send it directly to the recipient, if you'd like! Also, I would be happy to gift wrap it in tissue paper/bow and add a personalized note card for you, as well!

Any props used in product photos are not included in the sale.

Please consider that each computer monitor may present colors differently and a product's true color may vary slightly from what it may appear.

Again, 5% of all sales are donated to my local animal shelter! Thank you for your support!

All items come from a smoke-free, pet-friendly home!

If you have any questions or concerns regarding my policies, please contact me before purchasing.

Thank you!
