Thank you for browsing my special offerings! I have been a life long lover of and collector of items from the past. Those things wrapped up in my memories or triggered for me a special time in my life. I am striving to bring you quality vintage and newly crafted items that will make or trigger special memories for you.

My ultimate goal is to have customers who will have a smile on their face when they open my packages. I strive very hard to accurately describe each of my items. If you have any questions, I will answer to the best of my ability and knowledge, but I am unable to guarantee that I have 100% knowledge of it.

I am not an expert in all things vintage and therefore it is up to the buyer to do their due diligence and research on an item prior to purchase.

Most pieces are 20 - 50 years old, some are older. As such they will show signs of use e.g. scuff marks, utensil marks, scratches and may have an unidentified odor etc. I strive to to identify flaws with pictures and the description but minor signs of wear will not be individually specified as these marks are part of everyday use and in keeping with our use of the term ’vintage’.

Please see all photos as they are part of the description. If you feel you want additional photos, closeups, etc, I will be happy to take them for you prior to purchase. Accessories, props and background items in the photos are not included unless specified.

Measurements are approximate but we will try to be as accurate as possible

Returns and exchanges
I am willing to refund if an item is SIGNIFICANTLY different due to my lack of description or and error in the photos I listed.

For example:

there are less pieces than shown or described,
the color is green and I showed and described it as purple
there are holes or flaws not mentioned in the description or shown in the photos
my measurement is totally off, I said it was a queen size and its only a full size

Please convo me to discuss it. If I have made a gross error, I will issue a refund of the purchase price of the item plus the postage you paid to ship it to you.

If the error is due to your lack of questioning me or your lack of research on what it is or does, I reserve the right to refuse to refund.

In ALL cases, the return postage is the responsibility of the buyer alone.
The refund will be issued when I receive the item back to the store.
I accept payment through PayPal and Etsy Direct Payment with most major credit cards. All international buyers are responsible for any duty/custom fees.
Shipping rates are given for the USA only. I will choose the method for shipping, striving to get your item to you as quickly as possible. I use delivery confirmation on all shipments. All items are insured.

For expedited or international shipping, please request a specific quote for the item or items you are interested in. International shipments are sent only USPO.
The buyer is responsible for international customs charges, as well as filing a claim for damage that may occur during transit.

I ship on Tuesday and Friday.
Additional policies and FAQs
I have a non smoking, shed free, perfume free home, but some odors from previous owners maybe beyond my control. All linens and many of the fabric pieces will have been freshly laundered by me in a mild detergent free, scent free soap.
The only caveat to that being if I think it could damage or deteriorate the item, I may not wash it.

*Electrical item - anything with a cord and meant to be plugged in or, any parts meant to be used in an electrical item. e.g. internal parts for an electric percolator.

I will test an item to see if it works, but understand that these items are VINTAGE and may or may not be able to be used long term. If purchasing these items, it is the buyers responsibility to check them over carefully and have them updated as needed by a qualified electrician/repairman. Purchase of an electrical item from my store signifies your agreement to this disclaimer.

I accept no liability associated with the purchase and/or use of any item (s) listed or sold in the shop.
