About

Like a Bloodhound We Love the Scent!

Several years ago I discovered a love and passion for searching for and finding old stuff. It wasn't long before my youngest grand-daughter started going on the search with me, through this we bonded even more as she also began to develop a love for vintage. It followed that we would start selling some of our finds for surely we find much more than we can possibly keep.

Often I get the question, "What are you looking for"? My answer is, "anything older than me and all the stuff I had and either gave away or threw away".

We love the hunt sniffing out this and that treasure and we love sharing and offering some of our finds to you.

It is always our aim to offer a good shopping experience to you so that your satisfaction is complete. Never hesitate to let us know how we may better serve you.

5. Do you guarantee your items from a smoke/pet free environment?

Wish we could honestly do so, but we can't. Our items come from various places and even if we ask, people are not always honest with us. However, we do have some various allergies and so if we notice pet or smoke odors we tend to shy away from those items.

6. I have seen toys on your site. Are they with lead free paint?

Probably not as they are vintage. Any toys we sell are for display/collecting only and not for children to play with.
