I love this set! I had a few questions before I bought it - the seller quickly & honestly answered. The item matched the photo & description (and info). It arrived securely and safely. Great seller! Thumbs up!

Splendor in the Trash

I started repurposing textiles, ephemera, furniture and sewing notions before it was considered "cool," that is, before "shabby" was considered "chic." Repurposing a great piece of furniture by transforming it with paint or fabric made sense to me; not only did it save money; it made my place unique! I loved the idea of re-imagining some well-loved item and adapting it to a modern style and function.

My main passion is textiles. You'll see lots of throw pillows, dishtowels, bedspreads and tablecloths featured. I also love children's book illustrations, antique graphics, vintage cocktail glasses and barware and anything from the 1940s.

I hope you'll have fun browsing my site!

Refunds and Exchanges
Most all of our vintage items are 50+ years old, and with age comes the occasional ding, scratch, stain or fabric flaw. We only pick the "best of the best" and pass on the rest. We make every attempt to examine each item and disclose any flaws in the item description. But since we have no idea how you plan to use the item or how important perfection is to you, please ask questions...ask, ask, ask...because once the item is shipped, it's yours. That means, no refunds.

And unfortunately no matter how much bubble wrap we use to pack our items, we can't control the 800 lb. gorilla who decides to sit on the package at USPS any more than you can. But in ALL cases, we want to make you happy. Convo us with any issues.
Additional policies and FAQs
All of our vintage linens and textiles are cleaned and sterilized for your protection. Most ALL of the fabrics and textiles are vintage, meaning 50+ years old. Imperfections are to be expected...that's what makes them great! These are gorgeous, kicky, awesome, one-of-a-kind fabrics, kitchen linens, bedspreads and towels. These are rescued from cedar closets, antique trunks and gorgeous hutches....or are found in dusty attics, basements or even somebody's garage. We do our best to accurately disclose any small snags, tears, or faint stains.

We take care to accurately photograph and list condition issues. A good idea is to convo us and explain how you plan to use the piece. ASK ASK ASK specific questions before you purchase because we do not offer refunds!
