Hello and thank you so much for visiting the Patch Happy Pauper shop. Like most everyone here, I LOVE unique, aged, and one-of-a-kind things! However, my new husband prefers I keep the "collection" to a minimum...So...enter ETSY. Each item sold here touched me in some special way when I found it. Most are estate sale/tag sale and thrift store finds and have been loved by someone else in their previous life. Sometimes their story is what makes them special.

It is always my intention to represent my goods to the best of my ability. In doing so I make every attempt to locate a like item in stores and online and to learn from others concerning the items age, materials, and value. And some of the descriptives are given by the original owner or the estate sale personnel. I am not an expert by any means so I appreciate input from others regarding items listed for purchase, their descriptions and their value.

IMPORTANT: The items you purchase from this site are in the condition in which they were found. I do not clean the items (for fear that my lack of expertise may cause damage), except to the extent to make the photos accurate and acceptable.

My hope is to make fabulous vintage finds affordable for any budget. You should find that all items are very reasonably priced. If you are interested in an item and think that the price is not acceptable, feel free to contact me with an offer. I only ask that you be reasonable and fair minded.

Thanks again for viewing the Patch Happy Pauper site. Happy Shopping!

Returns and exchanges
A satisfied customer is my first and most important policy! So shop with confidence.

That said, please understand that nearly all of these items are used and may show basic wear. I will do my very best to describe the flaws and show them in the pictures; so read the item description and view all pictures thoroughly. If I neglect to show a major flaw (not regular wear) I will give a 100 % refund of your purchase price not including shipping charges. You may also choose to exchange the item for anything of like value.

Items that are glass and/or could be easily damaged will have an additional charge for insurance. You must inspect your items thoroughly upon receipt and document any issues with photographs and in writing via e-mail within 48 hours of receipt of order to qualify. Your e-mail should explain the issue(s) and your photos should also include the packaging. This is necessary for filing postal complaints.

You will be responsible for the return shipping and added insurance to insure safe receipt of the item for resale. Once the item is received by me, you will receive a refund for the price of the item.
Currently I accept Visa, & Mastercard, American Express and Discover; as well as personal checks through PayPal Services. I will also accept Money Orders. In the case of checks and money orders: Your order will not be shipped until the payment clears; in some cases this can take up to a week or more. Please make all CHECKS AND MONEY ORDERS out to Kelly D. Mead and place your item description and my shop name in the note area of the check or money order. If you fail to follow this procedure you shipment may be detained or cancelled.

Items may be reserved for seven days unless other arrangements are made. After seven days I will remove the "reserved" status and allow someone else the chance to purchase that item.

If you choose to cancel an order for any reason, you must do so within 24 hours and prior to shipping. Otherwise there will be an added expense of returning the item to me per my money back guarantee policy.
Shipping will be via the United States Postal Service unless otherwise stated. After your payment has cleared; items will be shipped in 1-3 business days. If you choose, I will upgrade the shipping and/or add insurance for an additional cost. In some cases, insurance will be added for my protection. Delivery Confirmation services will be utilized to insure proper delivery where available.

Your items will be shipped at the lowest applicable costs. If ordering small items; shipping may be free when purchased with another item. When ordering multiple items, shipping costs will be applied as stated on order page. I will combine shipping to save on costs whenever possible.

Items may be shipped Internationally. Please convo me with address so that I can set a personal shipping code and cost for you prior to purchase. Customs charges and any applicable taxes will be the responsibility of the buyer.

Unless otherwise requested items will be shipped in recycled materials ie; boxes, paper, wrap, etc. when practical. If you prefer a new box or packaging please let me know prior to purchase.

Again, any special requests concerning shipping insurance or priority upgrade, and/or packaging materials should be stated at the time of purchase by using the conversation option.

International packages are not guaranteed. I will provide proof of mailing if the package does not arrive within a reasonable amount of time but no refunds will be issued.
