About

In praise of the past

While there's something about every period in history that inspires me, the romantic, elaborate, and often eccentric aesthetic of the Victorians remains the most significant influence on my taste. I especially love sentimental items like mourning jewelry, hair work, and love tokens: Literal manifestations of one person's affection for another. I take a fastidious, curatorial approach to collecting, choosing items for their quality, uniqueness, and beauty.

"Roses and Rue" is an early poem by my hero Oscar Wilde, which he wrote for the actress Lillie Langtry. Always fond of dramatic gestures, it's said he used to throw stargazer lilies at her feet. It's not a particularly good poem, but a line that never made it into the final draft is a favorite of mine: "You had poets enough on the shelf- I gave you myself."

Returns and exchange details
All sales are final. That said, I strive to provide accurate information and want you to be happy with your purchase, so if you have any doubts or questions, please don't hesitate to ask!
Payment
In accordance with Etsy's new policy, direct payments through Etsy are now accepted. That means you can pay with: Credit cards, bank/debit cards, Etsy Gift Cards and Credits, PayPal, Apple Pay, and Android Pay.

Payment plans for larger orders may be possible- Please contact me to make arrangements. I also recommend Paypal Credit, which is free and easy to use for orders above $99.
Shipping
Most domestic orders ship USPS Priority Mail, which guarantees arrival within 3 business days from the ship date, and includes tracking and insurance up to $50. Exceptions would be something like a large, heavy book, which would be cheaper for you if sent via Media Mail or another service. International orders ship First Class International whenever size and weight allow, again to save you money on shipping charges. First Class International does not include tracking and insurance- Just let me know before purchasing if you would like to pay extra for these services.

Please contact me before purchasing if you need to combine shipping, would like an expedited service, or there is anything else I can do for you to meet your shipping needs.
Additional policies and FAQs
Due to the high volume of customers asking to put items on hold but never following through with the sale, I can only hold items for a period of three days. If I don't receive payment within that time or do not hear from you, I must make the item available to other buyers again.

If you are looking for something in particular, let me know! Send me your Wish List and I will see what I can find for you.
