Announcement    (Be sure to read my ITEM DETAILS sections as this shops sells exclusively vintage and antique items and condition details are in that section!)

Welcome to The (Ri)Charmed Life! Based in beautiful Clearwater, Florida, I’m a lifelong collector and appreciater of old stuff. I love oddball finds, religious imagery, Asian motifs, amateur artwork, little boxes… there’s not a whole lot I don’t like, as long as it’s interesting! But I can’t keep it all and I absolutely love seeing my finds go to homes where they’ll be loved and cherished.
Find me locally at Safety Harbor Galleria in downtown Safety Harbor, FL and at the Knot on Main Street in Dunedin, FL, just south of the Dunedin Causeway.

About TheRiCharmedLife

On Etsy since 2011

Born This Way

I come from a long line of collectors. We love “old stuff”! Always being around that, I just naturally learned to appreciate things of quality and beauty and really to take an interest in form in addition to function. When I was a child I was always selling. We grew up on the beach and I went around the neighborhood peddling shells! At school I would sell jewelry that I handmade. In later education I earned 4 year degrees in both business and history and found I really enjoy historical research. In 2001 I began selling online and for the past 20 years I have continued to do so. I am also part of my local antique community and sell at the Safety Harbor Galleria and the Knot on Main Street in Dunedin, FL.

Returns and exchanges
I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Returns and exchange details
I describe my items well and post as many pictures as Etsy allows. I expect my buyers to look through all the photos and read the descriptions. I DO NOT accept returns.
I cannot refund shipping. If an item is lost or damaged in the mail, please use the tracking info to make a claim with the USPS. Remember, insurance is included in the shipping cost. Once an order has left my hands, I am not responsible for it.
If it is damaged in the mail, please contact me before leaving feedback. You MUST provide photos of the damaged item and packaging. No refunds can be issued without such proof.
Payment
If you are not paying immediately, please contact me to let me know how long you estimate it will take you to pay. If I do not hear from you or receive payment within 4 days, I will cancel the sale.

If you want an item but can't pay right then, please contact me. I am happy to reserve items. I will reserve an item for up to a week. If there is a situation where you need longer, please convo me and let me know and I will consider extending the reserve.

Once an item has shipped, I cannot cancel an order.
Shipping
I ship Monday through Friday. I use recycled packaging. While I like to have orders in the mail within 3 business days, during busier times of the year it can take up to 10 business days to process. If you need something faster, please contact me BEFORE you buy and I can usually get it out quicker. If we need to do it Express mail, most of the time I can make that happen, but I would absolutely advise contacting me first.
I do ship international- please contact me with your exact country and I may be able to lower the shipping cost. US buyers, I ship from Clearwater, Florida so if you are nearby, let me know and it might be a lower rate.
Lastly, due to the jump in the USPS's breakage rate in the last few months, insurance is automatically added to the shipping cost. You do have the option of opting out and saving maybe a dollar or two, but I do not advise this as I do not accept returns and shipping costs are non-refundable.
Additional policies and FAQs
I research my items and price them at great prices- often significantly below what they're going for in other shops, so I do not discount. I am happy to try to reduce shipping by seeing what it would be to your exact country or zipcode, but my prices are firm.
As with most vintage items, some wear is normal. I do take good photos and mention condition issues. As a rule, I do not clean my items as some would be considered damaged if the natural "patina" is disturbed. It's up to you how sparkly you want to make your vintage find, but I do always mention if an item could use a scrub.
