Welcome! I'm a wife, mother and lover of all things vintage. No, seriously. I'm very happy in the homes of little old ladies... I love to oogle their things!

My house is FILLED with vintage items I've found over the years. I love that everything has a history, even if I don't know it. I find vintage items are of a higher quality than most mass-produced items of today. I love how unique they are and that I'm not going to find that same bowl at my neighbor's house.

Before I started homeschooling my children, I worked as a freelance journalist. I decided to leave that profession and focus on my kids.

Heavens to Betty started when I kept bringing home orphaned vintage treasures...and realized either I was about to become a pack rat or I needed to find them new places.

I love finding vintage items. I love selling them. I hope you find my prices reasonable; I take pride in trying to give lots of people the chance to buy vintage.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
If you have a problem with your purchase, please convo me. All refunds are on a case by case basis.
I really appreciate prompt payment via Paypal, though I have taken the occasional money order. I understand things happen and will give a three day window. If you haven't paid, I try my best to get hold of you to discuss if there's a is appreciated when convos are returned. If there is no payment in three days and no replies on convo, I'll consider the sale canceled.
Items typically ship within two days of payment. Saturday items are usually shipped Monday.

I'm always fiddling around with different shipping methods-- I like to try to find the best bang for the buck.

Currently, I'm testing the waters of Priority Mail within the US. It is quicker and I really like that it reaches its destination in a much timelier manner-- especially important when dealing with fragile vintage goods! International packages usually ship via International First Class.

Regarding combining shipping on multiple items: I'm very happy to do so, when possible. But, please remember, not everything plays well together in the mail. Something long and skinny will need a very different box than something short and round. If I can't combine them, or feel it might damage the item, I ship separately. If I do combine shipping, excess in fees is returned via Paypal.

**France, Switzerland, Norway, The Netherlands, Canada, Australia, Taiwan-- I love international customers!**

Due to the odd size of some of my items, I will sometimes reuse packaging if I can't find something in my shop that fits. I hope you don't mind-- I love giving items a second life, and that includes old boxes, as well!

Thanks again!
