Thebuttercup houses an ecclectic mix of cool vintage finds. I have experienced great joy living with these items, but alas, my tiny house is busting at the seams, and because my collecting tendencies are a disease that I cannot cure, please consider giving these treasures a good home!

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
Immediate payment via PayPal is appreciated. I'll send you an invoice if payment is not received within 3 days of order.
I ship once a week on Wednesdays and will send you an email with an estimated date of delivery once the package has been shipped. I use recycled packing materials when possible. At this time I do not charge a handling fee.

Parcel Post and First Class Mail will be used for shipping non-breakable items, breakables will be shipped Priority Mail. All packages are shipped fully insured with the cost built into the shipping price.

Most breakables are double boxed (or the equivalent) for added protection with the exception of smaller items (most single cups or smaller).

Please make sure your shipping address is correct! If the Etsy shipping address differs from the PayPal address, please contact me to let me know which address is correct. I cannot be held responsible for packages lost or returned due to an address that is not accurate.

If the actual shipping charges are over $1.00 of the quoted shipping price, the difference will be refunded.

Local pick-up arrangements are welcome.
Refunds and Exchanges
All sales are final and all sales are as found.

Please review descriptions of items before purchase and don't hesitate to ask questions!

Only insured orders will be refunded upon loss or damage. Shipping costs, unfortunately, cannot be refunded.

As stated above, any overcharges on shipping of $1 or more will be refunded.
Additional policies and FAQs
Everything is given a quick bath before being stocked in the shop, with the exception of paper items, of course! I try my best to post as accurate a description as possible and I welcome any further questions that you might have. Keep in mind that these items are OLD and normal wear and aging is to be expected. I'll note anything that could be considered a "flaw", but please consider these flaws to be a part of the history of the piece. All items are sold "as is".

I do my best to post an image that is an accurate representation of the piece's color. If the image isn't quite capturing it accurately, I try to write a good description. I try to do that anyway, but if you have any questions, please convo me.

I love a good hunt, and I'd be more than happy to take requests. Please convo me with what you are looking for as well as a price range and minimum quality. Of course I always try to look for the most perfect of specimens, but I know that slightly flawed things often are just as useful and beautiful!
