Setting the table, readying the bar - it's all about Fall and entertaining in style. And what could be more stylish than vintage from France - like these fab seafood plates and Deco style ice buckets? Let the party begin!
Thinking of autumn. Soft shades lead us into the glamour of the holiday season. It gets my inner decorator going. How about you?
Our New England road trip has been full of great finds - from primitives and antiques to fun and glam modern pieces! Stocking the shop as we pick our way through Vermont, and shipping from the road so you get quick delivery!

About

living a scavenger's life

If you ask me for my earliest memories, they will be of walking the shores of Lake Champlain with my grandfather hunting for shells, driftwood, interesting stones, other treasures worn smooth by the water. It was there, in those quiet almost sacred moments, that my love of searching for treasures was born.

When I discovered flea markets - the kind full of things long buried in attics and cellars - life became like a kaleidoscope, with the picture changing every day. I lived in the South for a while, and then in New England; places where a weekend could be spent at country auctions and barn sales. It was at one of these, when I saw an antique Coca Cola machine that was going for peanuts, that I first thought "That's worth more than that. Maybe I could sell it".

That was many years ago, and I've lived many places (and lives), and had numerous careers since then, but the scavenger's life has always been the underlying thread, and the joy on my bookshelves.

Part magpie (I love shiny things), part salvager, 100% collector, I love country, folk art, modern, Hollywood regency - there are just so many wonderful things out there to find. It's my pleasure to share them with you.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I gladly accept returns and exchanges
Contact me within: 3 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 7 days of delivery
I don't accept cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
If you have any concerns once you’ve received your item, please contact me within 3 days of receipt to discuss how to handle it. I encourage you to contact me with any problems before you leave negative or neutral feedback. In the case that an item is being returned, it must be returned in the same condition in which it was received, and packed with comparable protective wrapping. Buyers assume responsibility for return postage and insurance.
Payment
I accept credit cards directly through Etsy and Etsy gift cards, as well as payment via PayPal.
Shipping
Unless noted in the listing, I ship USPS priority mail so that your purchase arrives to you quickly. For oversize and extremely fragile items I may use UPS, and that will be indicated in the listing. For Canada I ship first class mail, unless requested otherwise.

Please note: my shipping cost reflects the amount I pay USPS to ship an item to you. You and I both want your item to arrive safely so I package things very carefully to make sure you get them in the exact condition they were in when they left me. That means they'll be packed in bubble wrap with plenty of peanuts or wrapping. And while I can absorb the cost of those supplies in my "cost of doing business", I cannot provide free shipping. Sometimes the actual cost of shipping to your location is less than my estimate and when this is the case you will be refunded that portion of the shipping charge.
Additional policies and FAQs
I hate it when I receive something and it’s bigger/smaller/lighter/darker/newer/older than I was expecting. So I take a lot of care with photos and descriptions to provide accurate information and measurements. Everything I sell is vintage, so it has the wear and signs of age expected of something that’s been around a while. Please take care to review all the information provided before you click to purchase so what you get is what you were expecting.

Layaways:
I will consider layaway on items over $100. Please contact me.

Holds:
I am happy to offer a 48 hour hold on an item but cannot hold anything longer than that. I value good customer service and will try and work with you, but having a clearly established policy allows everyone to understand how their transaction and purchase will proceed.

Privacy Policy:
This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

Information I Collect: To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your or your gift receiver’s name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (specific requests involving personal information, for example), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It:
• to fulfill your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
• if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
• as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure: Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

Etsy: I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.

Service providers: Trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as USPS and other delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.

Compliance with laws: I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to:
(a) respond to legal process or to government requests;
(b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies;
(c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or
(d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention: I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements.

Your Rights: You have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

Access: You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using Etsy's Contact system.

Change, restrict, delete: You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
