reconstructionism's Shop Announcement

Welcome to my shop filled with some of the most unique vintage (and vintage looking....) findings. Please let me know if you need quantity of anything. Some finds are more limited than others.

You are welcome to browse the sold listings and inquire about any of the items that may not be listed in the current inventory. I hopefully have more.

All inventory is vintage unless noted in the listing. If I know a decade, I will share it with you. If an item is new (and there will be some that are), I will spell it out clearly that it is.

Convo me with any questions and I will try and answer them. Happy shopping! And if you are searching for something in particular, let me know. I just may have what you are looking for...

reconstructionism's Shop Policies


Always at home in thrift stores and at flea markets and estate sales, I have amassed far more parts than the projects that I have in mind. So, with those little ferreted treasures and overstocks of other more recent vintage wholesale buys, I give you reconstructionism- a place to buy the needed and the unexpected for your designs. Not all of my finds are vintage, but I will let you know when they are not...


PayPal payment is expected within 3 days of purchase. If I do not hear from you, your items will be returned to stock. Please send your checks or money orders promptly and allow 5 additional business days for personal checks to clear my account. Please convo me if you need a little more time. Connecticut residents will pay an additional 6% state sales tax.


I ship to your PayPal address unless I hear otherwise from you. It bothers me when your Etsy address is different, so I will convo you to find out where you wish to have your goodies shipped. Please save me a step and let me know your preferred address. thanks!

Shipping is by USPS First Class or Priority Mail (depending on the weight of your package) with Delivery Confirmation. Insurance is available upon request; please wait to make payment until after I revise your invoice. I try to ship within 3-5 business days after receipt of payment. I usually ship sooner than that, but please convo me and let me know if you are in a rush for something.

*****fyi...I reuse and recycle all packaging and shipping materials that I am able to.

I hand carry your package into the Post Office and can not be held responsible for any loss or damage after the items leave my hands.

Refunds and Exchanges

Please let me know if anything is amiss with your order and we can discuss how you would like to have the issue resolved.

Additional Policies and FAQs

Check with me if you are interested in larger quantities of any particular item.

Please let me know if you would LIKE me to post feedback for you. Otherwise, I won't.
