About

Prairie Vintage Finds...searching the prairie for your next treasure.

I started Prairie Vintage Finds on Etsy in October 2013. I have always loved old things; especially old useful things. I'm not sure how I caught the bug. Maybe I caught it growing up on a farm with an old red barn out back that was filled with forgotten items. Inside that barn were all kinds of interesting things from the days when farmers used horses to work the fields. Maybe I caught the bug from my Granddaddy who had an antiques store on his front porch and would occasionally take me to local flea markets or give me a treasure from one of his recent estate auction purchases. Of course it could have been my Dad who was also fond of estate auctions and antiques and refinishing furniture. Wherever I picked it up it has been with me since I can remember and I still like the hunt and finding things that speak to me. Even better is sending an item off to its new home knowing that although it has been tucked away for years it is now being offered a new opportunity to be treasured. When I'm out hunting up new treasures I'm particularly drawn to items that were useful in the past and still have a lot of use ahead of them. And if they look like they belong on the farm....even better.

Thank you for stopping by!

    I've always loved things with a history. I'm sure I was partly influenced by my Granddaddy who had an antique shop on his front porch. In addition, when we moved to a farm I loved exploring and finding useful things. I've still got the bug.

Thank you for stopping by Prairie Vintage Finds. It is my goal to search out vintage and antique treasures and find them new homes where they will continue to be useful and productive objects for many years to come. Like most of us as we age, the items in my shop typically show some wear and tear from over the years. Since I like things that are a little rough around the edges I believe this adds to their charm; however, I try to identify any blemishes in my listings so that you can decide if the piece will be right for you.

Shipping
I try to ship items as soon as possible after they are sold and at least within 3 days. If you need an item by a certain time send me a convo and we can see what is possible and adjust shipping costs as needed.

I typically ship through the United States Postal Service and will provide you with a tracking number so that you can follow your item as it makes its way to you.

Shipping costs include postage as well as packaging appropriate for the item. Additional insurance is purchased on items selling for greater than $50. This is added to the shipping cost of the item. If you feel the shipping cost is too high based on your location send me a message and I will be happy to recalculate shipping based on your location. In addition, if you would like to purchase multiple items I will be happy to calculate exact shipping charges if the items can be sent together.

For international shipping please contact me and I will calculate your options and rates.
Refunds and Exchanges
I attempt to describe items to the best of my ability, detailing any wear and tear that buyers can anticipate finding in the object. If you would like additional details about an item please contact me and I can provide additional photos or details. All sales in my shop are final.

If an item is lost or damaged I will work with you and the USPS to rectify the situation.
Additional policies and FAQs
Since I love the thrill of the hunt, if you are looking for a specific item I will be happy to see if I can find it for you. Just send me a convo and we can discuss the details.
