Announcement   reduce, reuse, recycle - three of the four basic elements that embody the driving force behind my little vintage shop.

the fourth one is FUN.

whether you need interesting gifts for friends and loved ones..
- or you're looking for something fetching or funky for your own home..
- or if you just happen to stumble across something ridiculously nostalgic and squeal 'my mom had one JUST LIKE THAT when I was growing up!'
...buying something retro and previously loved is the way to go.

the less things that end up in landfills, the better.
the less of our hard-earned money we hand over to 'Big Business', the better.
isn't that why we're here at etsy?

I love the hunting and gathering aspect of vintage-ing, it'll be hard to part with some of the awesomer things I've run across!

thanks for looking at the things I find beautiful and intriguing, and thanks for reducing, reusing, recycling.
please note that we try to reduce and reuse when we ship - so if you receive your package in a pre-loved box, know that we're doing our part! please recycle/reuse everything you can!

I absolutely ship internationally, please ask for a shipping quote for your country!

please read my shop policies and be sure to convo me with any questions!

have fun!

Nice, but not what I expected. I thought the solar lights would provide more light than they do. But the glass is lovely.

To all possible customers reading: please be sure to read the item description before purchase - "as night falls you and yours can bask in the firefly-esque glow!" (i.e. fireflies are pretty on summer nights - but not good to read by!) - these are for decoration only, and not bright enough (in small quantities) to be used as a light source. I hope you enjoy the decorations anyway - thank you for your purchase, and I'm glad you think they're lovely!

Please be aware that all of my items - unless otherwise specified - are used (and quite possibly abused). They show wear and tear, they have chips in their paint, they have marks on them that their previous owners bestowed lovingly, etc.
I clean them up - I polish them when appropriate, I do what I can to make them shine while still allowing them to retain their 'vintage' look and feel.

Payment
I will accept Etsy direct checkout, PayPal (you do NOT need to open a PayPal account in order to use it for payments) and money orders at this time.
I will apply sales tax for buyers in Massachusetts.

Your item will be shipped within three to five days of receipt of your payment.
Shipping
Packaging Materials: Please note that a big part of my attempt to 'be green', in addition to selling used, pre-loved items, is to use recycled shipping materials when I can.
I.e., boxes and packing that have been used before. Try to pay it forward and recycle them, too!

International Shipping: If you do not see your country listed, please please contact me for a shipping quote. Some of my items are quite heavy and I would need to know a destination in order to accurately quote the cost of shipping to you.

Your items will be shipped regular USPS with delivery confirmation unless you specifically request insurance and/or expedited shipping.
Refunds and Exchanges
If your item arrives broken due to insufficient packaging, we will gladly refund your money.
If your item is broken and the error is the Post Office's, and you did not request insurance, we most likely will not. Please contact us, and we will see what we can do.

We fully test our solar lights before shipping - however, if you order our solar lights and there is a problem with one or all of them, please inform us immediately and we will address whatever seems to be the problem.

We will likely require you to return the 'defective' item to us before we do and will refund the cost of returning the items to us as well.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please note that custom orders (mason jar lanterns) may take 7-10 days to complete before shipping. If you would like your order rushed, or your shipping expedited, please let me know.
