Retro Chalet, Melmac , Glove Molds, Salvaged Antiques & Collectibles, Living a Vintage Life Podcast, Got Beef ? ®

I'm editor of Melmac Central website and blog, and write articles on Melmac online. I also run the Living a Vintage Life podcast. Retro Chalet is a little seasonal boutique full of an eclectic mix of the treasures I find in my travels. Wife of a BBQ Pitmaster, I get to travel all over, I love anything unique and like to bring old things back to life! From junking at an old farm sale to buying remains of abandoned factories in small rural towns I have a bunch of treasure waiting to share with the world.. I'm also an assemblage artist and I love using old things and giving them new life. So you'll find the rescued, re-purposed, some of my original assemblage.... We own the Got Beef? ® trademarks I own and design using approved manufacturers. I make window props for shops, and when I have time I enjoy collecting and writing about 1950s melmac and run a website dedicated to old plastics, aka "Melmac Central." Thanks for stopping by. Follow me on all social media channels @RetroChalet my latest stuff is on TIkTok
Artist portfolio here: I only ship to the lower 48 states.

Returns and exchange details
RETURNS: All items are sold as-is and as described. Vintage items do have slight imperfections and wear as they are authentically vintage. Most are as is! If you need more photos, convo me and I'll do my best to accommodate. Ask questions, I'm very chatty. Did you know on Etsy you can ZOOM all photos? .

DAMAGE: High dollar items shipped UPS with applicable insurance. I pack like Fort Knox. Damages must be reported to me with photos and you must hold the item in case the carrier wishes to pick it up. If you are purchasing an item under $50 and desire insurance, please CONVO me.

LOSSES: I ship most items where you can track the package. I use delivery confirmation and once that item is delivered, I've done my job. Please keep an eye on the tracking and address immediate issues to your mail carrier. I can't be responsible for items lost or stolen because you had it delivered to your work, or left on your porch :( .
I accept Etsy Checkout, Etsy Giftcards or Paypal. I ONLY SHIP TO THE lower 48 states. I do not ship to Hawaii and Alaska
GREENER: Items are packed with recycled packing materials.

EXPEDITED: Sorry, due to work travel issues I can't overnight anything. I ship at least once per week.

For glove molds, heavy melmac, and large items I will need a physical address--not a PO BOX as UPS won't deliver there.

Please note: If your Paypal address is different than your Etsy, your order may be delayed until I verify which one is accurate.
