About

Threads and Memories -- vintage finds, creative living.

It's been some years ago that I started selling a few things on ebay, opened a booth in an antique mall for a couple years, and then Etsy came along. Etsy is the perfect marketplace for me, a community that includes folks who love old bits and pieces from the past like I do! There have been many times my friends and family have said "why would you buy that? what do you do with that?" I'd just laugh and buy it, anyway.

Having recently moved, my new place is the upstairs of an old 1940s home. Love it. Perfect place to list and create. I'm moving in the direction of creating with this accumulation of vintage/antique finds.

I love sharing when I find a big box of old fabric pieces, old wallpaper, paper/ephemera so check back often.

I've pursued creativity all my life......drawing, sewing, embroidery, painting, crafts. Over the past years a love for vintage buttons, fabrics, and sewing items began and it grew from there. I opened a booth in an antique mall 13 years ago and called it "Threads & Memories" and a few years later began selling vintage quilt tops and fabrics on eBay. The recent advent of art blogging has been a real inspiration to start creating again. I'll be listing mixed media art & jewelry in the coming weeks as well as going through my ever-growing vintage stash which, of course, I can never find a way to use it all. I look forward to meeting more vintage lovers.

Payment
PayPal is the preferred method of payment, please. I realize that some folks don't want to use PayPal -- if that is you, send me a conversation and I'll contact you. Secondary payment method would be a money order.
Shipping
Living on the east coast means shipments to the west coast can be quite expensive. I try to ship the most cost-effective way to save you money. If you want more secure mailing, convo me for a PRIORITY MAIL shipping amount which provides tracking information for you. Only once in many years have I had a problem with a package not arriving -- once is too many for the recipient and I'm glad to add insurance to your package or change to a more secure mailing if you prefer.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: I've had wonderful interactions with international buyers over the years. It's great to hear from people all over the world and I'm glad to do business with you. PLEASE email me before sending payment just to confirm that the shipping cost listed is applicable to your country.
Refunds and Exchanges
REFUNDS ONLY if I have made a mistake in the description. Descriptions are intended to be thorough and I ask that you convo me if you have any questions before purchasing. Please read carefully.

Sorry I cannot be responsible for uninsured packages if damage occurs. I take care to package your item(s) so they arrive in good condition. If you want insurance, please convo me.

If any item is returned, I will issue a refund upon receipt of the package and inspection that it is in the same condition as when shipped. Return postage will be your responsibility.

Remember VINTAGE is not perfect -- that is part of its appeal.
Additional policies and FAQs
For local friends who have purchased from me before at the antique mall or when we have our old-fashioned yard sales, we can arrange for pick-up to avoid postal costs. Thanks!!
