About

The world's an array of melting pots.. At least in South Florida it is..

🌸There's nothing that I don't appreciate in music from Classic Country, Heavy Metal to Django Reinhardt, onto The Bee Gee's, seriously.. :)~ So you get the basic idea regarding my shop, it's like my play list all, over the place ...

I started this shop after opening "Grotto333" Etsy shop for the things I make.. But then I realized I needed to get rid of some of the many things I've been collecting for years, or find on my many outings..

So I decided to put an awesome array of all things old, ethnic, fun, and unusual... With an occasional vintage (toy, ephemera, & Christmas, etc) collectible to keep things interesting..

So if you truly love something and the price doesn't love you back.. Convo me, lets see what we can come up with..

*Cheers*

----------------------------------------------------

HANDBAG INFO!!!!!!!

I know your leery about making an online luxury hand bag purchase at this price.. Well I'm just as leery selling my bags online... So lets work together to prevent an unhappy outcome at both ends, even if that means talking 1 on 1.. :)

When I sell you a bag, I will attach a marked zip tye (to a place that will not effect the handbags integrity) to each of my bag's upon sale..

If for some reason you decide to return the bag it must be returned as is with my zip tye attached to ensure I get "my" authentic bag back.. And please notify me, that it's on the way back..

All returns must be received back to me within 5 days, PERIOD.. Or I will simply refuse the package..

If you love the bag.. Carefully cut off the zip tye, then PLEASE? send me a photo & I will post A+ feedback & our trade is completed..

----------------------------------------------------

Basically I'm pretty easy going, and hope you as a buyer can be too.. But unfortunately in some cases I've refunded a buyers purchase if I feel we cannot make our transaction work.. Even before I've sent out the item.. I feel life is to short to ridicule one another or even post negative feedback.. :(

Just keep in mind I buy, trade, & resell used goods.. (Unless stated) therefore my items are not brand new, I'd like you to judge them accordingly.. And please don't be unrealistic in your expectations, your not making a catalog purchase here..

If you want insurance, please ask for insurance.. Some items will require insurance or I will not be able to ship your item until you've elected to purchase the insurance coverage.. Again in a few cases, I have chosen to refund the buyers money because they would not pay for this coverage..

I do my part & provide you with the best packing ability, I can provide.. Please do your part & cover your new purchase by electing to pay for postal insurance..

AND... If your item is over $100- most likely, I've included Insurance in your purchase..
Additional policies and FAQs
Layaways can be made on items over $150.00 in 2-4 payments maximum.. 50% due at time of purchase.. Remainder to be paid within 6-8 weeks..

Payments made with a credit card through Etsy or Paypal will be charged an additional 5% upon EACH installment..

Sorry, Payments cannot be extended more than 8 weeks maximum.. If you should go over the 8 weeks, I will refund your money less $25.00 to cover all of my acquired fee's..

Ok , Sorry for that.. Now with all the mumble jumble out of the way, THANK YOU for checking out my Lil corner of Etsy it's a pretty big place Etsy, with some pretty unique finds... Just don't forget me!!! Please come back from time to time & see what else I uncover.... :))

~Cheers from Since1971
