Treasures from all eras

Hello there!
Like a lot of vintage lovers, I learned to appreciate old treasures with the help of my mother. She would take me along to yard sales and antique shops since I can remember.
I used to have the best "dress-up" clothes on the block. (I wonder what ever happened to them!)
Since then, I have always had an appreciation for the quality and craftsmanship in everything from nic-nacs to clothing from the past. They definitely don't make things the way they used to!
Now, I have the pleasure to search the states for fun pieces and find them new homes.
Every trip I take, I end up bringing back at least an army bag full of goodies. I can't help myself!
I'm so glad to be able to share my sweet vintage finds with you.

I accept Paypal and Etsy Direct Checkout. Please make sure your address is current and confirmed on Paypal. I only ship to confirmed addresses.
Please pay within 24 hours unless otherwise discussed.
NOTE: I no longer ship to China. I have had too many packages go missing in Customs. I apologize for any inconvenience.

International buyers: Please note that USPS international shipping has increased. I have had to raise my shipping prices, but they are still below the actual price charged by USPS. I do not profit from shipping costs.

I ship using USPS Priority Mail with delivery confirmation. If you would like me to ship using First Class, please let me know ahead of time and I will see if I have the proper box or envelope readily available. First class does not have a guaranteed shipping time. This could mean up to two weeks or more for international shipping, depending on customs.

I try my best to offer the most affordable and fastest shipping. I usually send items the next day, if not the same day, depending on if it is a weekend.
I have no problem combining shipping. If you are interested in more than two items, convo me ahead of time and I will give you a quote. Depending on the size of the items, they may fit together into one flat rate Priority Mail envelope or box. If so, I can charge one price. I can easily adjust the shipping price.

I only ship internationally to Canada, Japan, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.

USPS International Priority Mail shipping is supposed to take 6-10 BUSINESS days. Sometimes it may take longer. Your package may have to go through several customs on it's journey. I am not responsible for any taxes that your country may charge for purchasing internationally.
Refunds and Exchanges
No returns or exchanges unless description is GROSSLY misinterpreted.
The fit of an item is not included under this because I give accurate FLAT measurements. A lot of vintage clothing do not have legible size tags or are handmade. Also, vintage sizes are much different from modern sizes, sometimes smaller. Please make sure to compare your own measurements or that of your own clothing to the ones listed.
Being that these items are 20+ years old, they may have minor wear and quality may vary. This is to be expected with most vintage, but does not mean they aren't wonderful pieces! I strive to find items in perfect condition, but some may have minor flaws. So, I try my best to take note of all damage. Please be sure to read the description thoroughly.
In some cases, wear and distress add to an item's vintage character.
Also, because of it's previous life, you may want to dry clean your purchase, as I do not do this prior.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you have any questions about an item, please feel free to contact me. I want you to be happy with your purchase and if there are any reasonable concerns, please contact me before or after.
I greatly appreciate positive feedback and would love to give you one too.
