Absolutely top-notch service and item; even refunded the overage for the shipping which was charged (which I now know that is stated in their policy).

It will be a lot of fun to use this bucket in a variety of decorating ideas. It's perfect.

Poor communication. A little slow on shipping. Item is nice, however. As described.

Communication was 100% as usual.Buyer had remorse and tried to get a refund but we had already shipped item.So much for the slow shipping jab.

About

A journey every day

Civil Engineer by education but a merchant by heart, it is in my blood.
My family were pearl divers and still are. They had a fleet of 14 ships and would take the pearls all the way to india and return back with spices, silk, and much more to trade locally, and the journey would start all over again.
I used to go to the sea shore and gather everything that the sea rolled in and I mean everything wood, glass even rocks and sea weed. A hobby gone wild and became a living for over 20 years :)
Went to college and did all things normal people would do. Bought an old home that was built in 1902 and started to decorate it with vintage finds. 3500 square feet, 3 story high house with $1200 budget but deep in my mind it was my store capital :)
After few years an idea hit me, why not sell all contents and start all over again..I decided to have an auction.
That was it for me. That marked the begining of my vintage buying and selling career, and marking the great end of my professional engineering life.
I had Never looked back ..it's been 20 years or more.
Scouted old farms and auction, bought and sold. Helped others decorate with a high or low budgets for many years.Then I decided to open a shop, found an old train station. Great location, Hot in the summer and freezing cold in the winter. People loved it and so did I.

Things got better and life became more enjoyable for me and my family. No headachs no boss, no worries :) Life is good and business is good.

I see no end in sight only more things to buy and places to see.

Come and enjoy my world and be part of the fun finds our daily journeys bring. We start at 4 am till 12 pm almost every day.

The journey has no end in sight :)
