About

Retro Chalet & Got Beef ? ® Salvaged Antiques & Collectibles

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, . my favorite exploration is that of old farms and abandoned factories in small rural towns. 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 art, and guy goods including #BFD ® and Got Beef? ® which are part of trademarks I own and design using approved manufacturers. I make window props , and when I have time I enjoy collecting and writing about 1950s melmac and run a website dedicated to old plastics, https://RetroChalet.blogspot.com aka "Melmac Central." Thanks for stopping by.

PAY IT FORWARD today and always.

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. 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. If you are purchasing an item under $50 and desire insurance, please CONVO me.

LOSSES: I ship most items via Paypal 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 for weeks.
Payment
I accept Etsy Checkout, Etsy Giftcards or Paypal. Please note INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS, international shipments may be subject to duties, taxes, and other fees as your country may impose in addition to payment to me. This is your responsibility.
Shipping
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.

CANADA ISSUES: I no longer ship glove molds to Montreal, Canada due to breakage and problems at that UPS hub. If you live in Montreal, Canada, then you must provide alternate shipping address for me to ship to.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: Please note you will be responsible for any import, customs, or duties taxes accessed by your government on incoming parcels. Failure to pay results in the package being abandoned in your country and I can't be responsible for that. These fees include duties, taxes, and other fees as your country may impose in addition to payment to me.

POSTAGE: I do ship internationally and to date, no problems but I must warn you it's expensive. Since the US has done away with "surface" mail which was the least expensive options, your package must go FIRST CLASS INTERNATIONAL (under 4 lbs, not traceable) or PRIORITY MAIL (very expensive, but traceable).

*CANADA / UPS UPS is now offering a wider shipping range, if you do not see the item offered to Canada please convo me and I can check rates.
