About

From Portland to Paris.....my Life as a Glitter Picker

After years in retail, in 1996 I became the owner of Brookhaven Vintage Marketplace, a twice-yearly antique show in Beaverton Oregon. My love for collecting expanded into finding treasures to sell and ever since then I have been on the hunt and have since expanded to selling online. I never get tired of the thrill of the hunt!

I call myself a Glitter Picker because I like all things glittery and funky coolness....no rusted out motorcycles for me. I have a huge love for vintage books and vintage jewelry, as well as many other things. My online shop is a reflection of my vintage sensibilities and hope to be an inspiration for all who visit.

I search the Portland area for treasures and go on glitter pick road trips. I even pick when I am on vacation...there's always time to hit a flea market wherever I am at.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy my finds!

Returns and exchanges
I am committed to describing items to the best of my ability. Please note that vintage items have generally been well-loved and used and are not in brand new condition. Vintage items are sold "as is" and are non-refundable. However, if an item has been misrepresented or damaged in transit, please let me know within five days of receipt and refund or exchange will be arranged at that time. I am unable to refund shipping costs.
Payment
We accept Paypal, Etsy gift cards and Direct Checkout. Easy Peasy. Payment is due upon purchase.
Shipping
I generally ship three days a week- Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. During the Christmas season I ship five days a week. All items will be shipped USPS with delivery confirmation, whenever possible.

International: I am happy to ship international orders, however, international mail is not traceable beyond the borders of the US and therefore cannot be guaranteed and I will not refund orders that get lost in transit. International orders will be shipped via USPS First Class International. By purchasing any item that will go to a country outside of the US the buyer acknowledges that it is their responsibility to pay all customs, taxes, handling fees or other charges imposed by the government or postal service of the country where the package is being delivered to.
