About

A passion for vintage beauty...

I’ve always had a passion for beautiful vintage boxes -- especially tins! -- and paper items. Both are windows into the social history and day-to-day life of times past, and collecting and displaying their beauty is pure joy.

I love how tins can develop such gorgeous patinas over time. They’re wonderful for keepsakes and mementos, organizing desk supplies and whatnots, and a tin can be a truly inspired gift, or gift box. Whether it’s a figural tin in the shape of a billiard table from the early 1900s, or a beautiful mid-century floral tea tin, I’m smitten.

Also look for vintage paper items at tinprincess, like paper candy boxes, hand fans, advertising cards, art prints, etc. My own original art is sprinkled in, too (I used to be a painter). And there are other surprises in the mix.

An eco word: I weigh my environmental concerns with the economics of running a very small business, and also keeping the experience clean and comfortable for the customer. Most items are packaged in new cardboard boxes made from post consumer waste, with blank newsprint paper as the buffering material, both of which can be recycled. Occasionally, I ship in reused cardboard boxes. I minimize the use of styrofoam peanuts and plastic air pockets, and when I do use them, they are being reused. My items are usually wrapped in new bubble wrap, though I am looking for affordable alternatives. I feel continuing the life and use of vintage items in itself reduces the negative impact on the environment.

Returns and exchange details
• I will work to make things right for you if you have any problems or concerns.
• Returns are accepted up to 30 days after item is received, with buyer contacting me within 14 days of delivery. Buyer pays return shipping, so read the description closely and view all photos. If I have made a serious error in the listing (or otherwise) I will refund your return shipping costs. Contact me first by email for instructions on initiating a return.
• My original shipping costs are NOT REFUNDABLE ON INTERNATIONAL RETURNS unless I have made a serious error of some kind in the listing.
• In the rare case that an insurance claim has to be filed, all original packaging needs to be kept to show proof of damage, there can be a mandatory waiting period until claim can be filed, and you may be required to fill out an online questionnaire to verify loss or damage, or verify by phone, etc.
Payment
• I accept credit cards, debit/bank cards, Apple Pay, and Android Pay directly through Etsy; all forms of PayPal, including PayPal by way of using a credit card; Etsy gift cards.
• Ohio residents (and now Washington State, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, and possibly other state residents) pay sales tax on total cost, including any shipping and handling.
Shipping
• I usually ship the next business day after payment is received, if it’s going to be more than a couple days I will notify you promptly.
• I only ship to the address provided at check out, so if you are sending a gift or need your item shipped elsewhere, be sure to add that address to your address book before purchase, and use it at check out.
• If shipping is being charged and combined shipping for multiple items at checkout is still more than necessary to ship the items to your location, an appropriate refund will be made.
• For added security, packages valued over $100 are usually shipped with signature confirmation to eliminate possibility of them being left unattended at delivery.
• I will ship some items to certain foreign countries which have delivery confirmation from the U.S. These include: Canada, Australia, New Zealand. I no longer ship to the European Union, which includes the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland. Australia now has a 10% GST at checkout.
• For INTERNATIONAL shipments, all customs charges, import fees, VAT, and related expenses due at time of delivery are the responsibility of the buyer. Recent experience shows some countries impose steep charges. I cannot falsify values to avoid customs charges on the buyers end. Please allow two to three weeks shipping time for delivery. Read item description thoroughly and look at all photos. Return shipping costs could be very expensive for you, and my original shipping costs are NOT REFUNDABLE on international returns unless I have made a serious error in the listing.
• Alaska and Hawaii, please allow additional delivery time, possibly a week or more.
• Very sorry, due to delivery problems, I no longer ship to APO/FPO addresses, or U.S. Protectorates.
Additional policies and FAQs
• Please contact me to resolve any issues before leaving poor feedback of any kind. I will work with you to resolve any issues that come up. I want you to be happy!
• I often ship immediately, so any cancellations need to take place very quickly. Once shipped, a cancellation is not possible. Once a shipping label has been printed, shipping costs cannot be refunded, even if the listing offers free shipping.
