About TheHootVintage

They don't make 'em like they used to!

We've been told we live in a mid-century modern museum, but our tastes really span the decades. From art deco, to the atomic era, to seventies swag, we appreciate it all. Quality is timeless!

The added benefit of the vintage lifestyle is that we are not participating in the disposable consumer culture of today. We use and reuse. In this way, we are committed to using recycled shipping materials as much as possible.

We hope the quality, character, and style of these pieces bring you joy!

Frequently asked questions
I see you don't accept returns. What do I do if something arrives damaged through shipping?

Please send me a message if there is any damage due to shipping. I often pay extra for shipping insurance so we'll handle it on a case by case basis.

What condition is my item in?

Vintage items have been loved over the years. They often have wear from use, but that's what gives them character! I would never sell something that would not be proudly on display in my own house. If there happens to be anything more than a manufacturer's flaw in an item, I will make sure it shows up in the photos. Please read descriptions, zoom into pictures, or send me a message if there is a question before purchasing. I am not trying to hide anything.

If I buy more than one thing, can we adjust the shipping costs?

I have Etsy calculate the shipping based on weight, dimensions and locations. Please message me BEFORE purchasing if you have questions about shipping multiple items. Since it's based on weight and location, there is usually not much of a difference in price, but I would be happy to package things up, check for you, and make any pricing adjustments. I try to be fair. Once the items are purchased, there's not much I can do.

Why live a vintage lifestyle?

Fall in love with the quality, character and history of things that have lasted through the ages. When you buy vintage, you are buying a piece of history. You are participating in an economy built around small businesses. This is giving new life to old things instead of buying the new, disposable and cheaply-made products of today. There is something beautiful about having things that can be treasured and loved again. You learn to slow down a little while your coffee percolates and enjoy the bubbles.
