This shop is to share some of my great ideas and unique ephemera items with more people! Some of the designs and patterns of the 30's, 40's and 50's are just too great to let go of.

Almost all the handmade items I sell are created with scans I made myself from my collection of vintage ephemera. If you purchase something from my shop, it is with the express understanding that it is for your personal use only, and cannot not be resold, duplicated, or used commercially.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
I don't mind exchanging unused merchandise, but the buyer is responsible for return shipping and shipping of the new merchandise. In the case of damaged or lost goods please contact me to discuss replacement items or refunds.
I follow Etsy's payment policies; PayPal payments are due three days after purchase. If after three days I do not receive PayPal payments the transaction is canceled and the items relisted. Payments by check or money order must be received within 7 business days. If this is an issue, please convo me and I will work something out.
I ship all items USPS First Class or better, usually on one to two business days after payment. So, if I receive payment on Friday, your package will be shipped on Monday or Tuesday. If you'd like faster shipping, insurance or anything different, please contact me and let me know.
Additional policies and FAQs
I have a ton of vintage (pre 1950's) postage stamps from the United States and the rest of the world. If you want a specific combination of countries or just a specific country I do not list, please feel free to request them.

I also have vintage used greeting cards, vintage ribbon and wrapping paper, along with bushels of correspondence and other ephemera. If you are looking for something in particular, feel free to convo and ask!
