About

What We Do Here...and Why!

The purpose of our shop is to bring more beauty to your world, and we sell only what we love. Our offerings are distinguished further in these ways:

1. We actively collect and specialize in several Art Deco dinnerware patterns from the 1920s & 1930s:

~ Salem China: the futuristic Atomic Art Deco shapes 'Tricorne' & 'Streamline' were our first dish crush--Triangular plates? Conical cups? Crazy!--and we soon fell for the classically Moderne round coupe shapes 'Century', 'Saphire' and 'Zephyr'. We're proud to offer our ever-growing collection of these retro fabulous shapes in as many patterns as possible, from the popular Mandarin Orange to the bridal white-with-platinum rings Zephyr, and everything in between.

~ Leigh Potters (& its predecessor, Crescent China): Leigh Ware is some of the most interesting Depression era--& some say THE first example of--American Modernist dinnerware design. Charles Leigh Sebring's company, Leigh Potters, released and perfected their trademark Umbertone ceramic, a naturally "cafe au lait" colored Ohio River Valley clay body, provided the perfect material with which to produce shapes both classic (the round "Moderne") and experimental (the geometric "Ultra"). These shapes and their often dynamic decorations were the result of the genius of famed ceramic designers Joseph Palin Thorley and Gale Turnbull.

~ Oneida's Community China & Community Plate: One of the most highly collectible Art Deco dinnerware patterns in the world, 'Deauville' features a stylistic chevron motif, which was produced in a dazzling array of mediums: in a silvery platinum glaze on ivory Bavarian & white French porcelain; embossed & impressed on silverplated flatware & hollowware pieces, and even etched on delicate crystal stemware! We're hooked...

2. We celebrate women in all their mysterious forms, from flappers & pinup goddesses to geishas & jazz babies, and every glorious gal in between...

Questions about your order?
Please if you have any problems with your order.
Your satisfaction is very important to us - if you are not fully satisfied with your purchase, please let us know immediately and we'll work something out!

Vintage items are by nature old, and as such, are assumed to be in age-appropriate condition. We strive to describe all defects, flaws, or signs of age in great detail.

Please note: photographed colors will display differently on different devices. If exact color is important to you, please contact us before purchasing for additional photos.

If an item arrives damaged, please save all packing material & the original box, and send us with photos and description of the damage. We will handle any claims with the carrier.
Payment
We accept all major credit cards through Direct Checkout and PayPal. You can also use an eCheck or money from your bank account through PayPal (with or without creating a PayPal account). We also accept Etsy Gift Cards.

Immediate payment is required unless you contact us before making your purchase to discuss other arrangements.

:: PAYING IN INSTALLMENTS (LAYAWAY) ::

We offer Layaway payment programs to enable our customers to stay within their budgets AND to purchase something they love; please inquire if interested.

:: LAYAWAY TERMS ::

Once we come to an agreement with you about what amounts you can pay and when, we create a separate listing for each payment, and post in our RESERVED section with the payment dates that you choose. That way you just go through the regular Etsy purchase process on those dates.

1. The process begins with an initial payment to hold your purchase, usually 15%-20% for orders up to $500; orders over $500 require a down payment of 20%-30%. This and your future payments are considered deposits, only refundable if, after receiving the item, you find your item(s) significantly different than described and ask us to return it within a week of its arrival.

2. Please choose the dates on which you commit to making the payments. If you need help remembering, we can send you a reminder a day or so beforehand.

3. Please use the same payment method for all your installment payments (either PayPal or Etsy's direct checkout). That way there's no confusion about when payments are made or received. PayPal has an eCheck system that links directly to your bank account if you don't want to use a credit or debit card.

4. Please provide your phone number in the comments section of your first payment.

5. If you miss any payments by more than 2 days and 2 reminder emails, we take the item out of reserved status, and it becomes available for purchase by the general public. If someone else does purchase it, we will refund a portion of your payments to you (the total amount paid, less a 15% restocking fee, and up to $5 per installment to cover fees & labor).

6. We will ship upon receipt of the final payment.


:: WEDDING REGISTRY DISCOUNT PROGRAM ::

When you add an item to your Etsy Registry (or other online registries), the item is not actually reserved and could be purchased by someone else. We offer you the option of reserving any items in our shop for your guests to purchase, provided you commit to buying any leftover pieces at a discounted price (10% off for purchases up to $450; $15% off anything over that).

Terms:
~ Items can be reserved for up to 3 months
~ Item reservations totaling between $500-$999 require a 20% deposit; over $1000 the deposit is 25%
~ You have up to 10 days after your wedding date to finalize any outstanding purchases, after which we will refund any unused deposits. If no items remain for you to purchase, we will refund your deposit within 7 days of your wedding date.


:: SALES & DISCOUNTS ::

* Returning Customers - 10% off every time you shop with us; use RETURNCUSTOMER10

Shipping
U.S. Shipments: We use USPS Priority, USPS Media Mail, FedEx Ground/Home Delivery or UPS Ground with delivery confirmation, but our domestic shipping costs are generally estimated for Flat Rate Priority shipping; insurance is included in your price.

International Shipments: We generally use USPS International First Class for packages up to 4lbs [1.81kg] and costing less than $50 - it's cheaper, but offers a Customs number instead of a tracking number; for packages over 4lbs [1.81kg], we use USPS Priority International, which offers tracking. Please contact us with your full address for an exact quote.

Shipping Estimates: If it costs more to ship your order than our estimate, we will cover the difference up to $10. If we underestimate your shipping costs by more than $10, then we'll contact you to work out a solution. Alternately, if we overestimate the cost by more than $2, we'll refund the entire overage.

Tracking numbers & shipping confirmation will be emailed to you once shipment has been made.

PLEASE NOTE: When using PayPal, we will ship only to PayPal confirmed addresses (usually the same address as on your credit card statements).

Please contact us if your package has not arrived after 5 days of the estimated arrival date in your Shipping Confirmation email.
