Thanks so much especially for the quick shipping! This was for my 90 year old mother who was very anxious to keep on knitting!

Hi! I have always loved old things and treasure (hoard?!?) them ... especially when they previously belonged to friends or family members who've passed on.

Along with this love of old things, I also live in a very old house ... and it's small and made for people smaller than most of us are today. Small is good, mind you; but it does limit storage space -- and therein lies the birth of this shop!

I've all sorts of things from housewares, linens, clothing, tools, etc. that I don't use anymore. I avidly knit and crochet and previously did tatting, embroidery, sewing, needlepoint, cruel, etc., so I've a mountain of fibers and other materials I need to destash to manage my stash (hoard!) in a more organized manner.

If you like retro, you'd love my house ... and you'll probably enjoy this shop.

Have fun looking around, stop back now and then as I'll continue to add items as I unearth them from storage; and please don't hesitate to convo me if you've any question at all.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Money Order
I prefer PayPal but will also accept money orders or cashier's checks. Please do note, though, that checks will delay receipt of your purchase as I will wait till they've cleared prior to shipping.
Whenever possible, I will ship the next business day following receipt of payment. Except under very unusual situations where a piece is of awkward proportions or is very heavy, I use US Postal Service -- specifically Priority Mail, First Class Package, Parcel Post and International First Class.

I will happily combine shipping on purchases, but do be aware that this will most likely slow me getting your package into the system as I will need to repack and refigure the weight and shipping costs. I will do this as quickly as possible and keep you informed; just know that I can't do this ahead of time as I have no idea what you might wish to combine.
Refunds and Exchanges
I make every effort to find the most reasonable rate for getting your purchase to you quickly and safely.

Return for refund on clothing articles is accepted if a purchase doesn't fit. I can't, however, refund the shipping costs for this. Please convo me as soon as possible after receiving your order so that we can discuss this and confirm details.

In the event of damage or breakage to an item during shipping, coverage is provided by shipping insurance only ... and therefore not covered if you opt not to take insurance.
