Announcement    Oh Hello! I'm so happy you've come to peep my little treasures. I hope you find something that takes your fancy. Questions are most welcome ^_^

I frequently pop pictures of new treasure finds on my Instagram account. Please follow me @secret_histories for my latest finds and videos. Special items are often snapped up before I get a chance to list them here. I do also have my own website where new items are listed first before becoming available on Etsy if they don't sell right away.

I love sending packages, and will send things to you anywhere in the world!
Paying for postage is a pest -_- Trust me, I get it. All orders over $300 are sent with tracking (unless otherwise noted) - but if you'd like something in a hurry please let me know & I can figure out a priority shipping rate. If you're on a budget I can find a cheaper (if less secure) option. Send me a message, let's work it out ^_^

I Do Not Skimp On Packaging. Your item will arrive well protected from any antics the postal service might throw at it. I do prefer to use recycled packaging where possible - this usually means vintage ring boxes and other fun tins and containers I find in my treasure hunting. It might also mean I've re-used some perfectly clean bubble wrap or a postage box. Small steps to saving the planet, right?

Layby is no problem at all, and I'm happy to help with a plan that will work for you. As a general rule I take 20% deposit followed by monthly instalments over the next 3 months - but that's just a guide, send me a message and we can sort out the details.

About SecretHistories

Sales 82
On Etsy since 2015

Endearing, curious objects with a past.

Ever since she was small, Aurelia has been poking about in dark corners looking for treasure. Sometimes she finds some, sometimes she has a misadventure, but she's always keen to go treasure hunting again.

This has lead to a surplus of treasure! There are few things sadder than a pretty thing looking for love - so this is a matchmaking service - connecting tiny treasures with new owners to love and adore them. Each item has been carefully curated, hand picked for it's special qualities. Old objects with a story, pretty things that resonate with past adventures are particular favourites.

Aurelia has a postgraduate degree in the Visual Arts and was taught how to evaluate the quality of objects from a very young age . She has a keen eye for detail and an intuitive ability to find the best treasures in the dankest of junkyards.

The first time Aurelia tried to buy (rather than unearth) a juicy piece of treasure she got duped. When she figured out her mistake she felt terrible. She then went about learning everything she could regarding the history of shiny things to make sure it couldn't happen again. She vows to always be honest and forthright in her trades. Honesty and Integrity Always.

Frequently asked questions
Can I organise a lay-by or payment plan with your shop?

Yes! If it wasn't for lay-by I wouldn't have most of my favourite things, so it's only fitting that I offer it to you, too. Generally I take a non-refundable deposit of 20% up front, followed by monthly payments over three months.

I do not offer returns on layby items.

Please send me a message about the item you are interested in and let's work it out ^_^
