About

My Vintage Love Story

My parents were both very frugal their entire lives. Because they had struggled through the Great Depression, we were taught at a very young age to take care of things, reuse, recycle and upcycle long before that idea resurfaced in the 2000s. We never had all the 'stuff' that people have today. That early training has been both a blessing and a curse for me, because as an adult, I became a collector.
When I first found Etsy, I was actually looking for an outlet for my artwork, and my 1st shop, "MixedMediaByZehner" was born. Then, I had to have several surgeries within a couple of years (c-spine & both rotator cuffs), and wasn't able to make art for several years. I enjoyed the whole process of etsy and didn't want to give up my shop, so I started posting vintage items. To my great surprise, they sold.
By the time I retired from many years of teaching art, healed from the surgeries, and was ready to make art again, I realized that my shop had gradually taken on a different look. The shop name no longer fit what I was selling. I still wanted to sell my art, but I also liked selling vintage. Finally, I decided to keep the art in the original shop, and open a separate shop for my vintage treasures. Since retirement, I am now beginning to downsize and prepare for a move to be closer to my kids and grandkids. So, in my shop, you will find many of my treasures that it is time to part with so I will have more room for my studio where I paint and make pottery. I hope you will come back often as I am listing more items every week. You can find my art work in my other shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/mixedmediabyzehner

    Imagine waking up one day and realizing that you & all your stuff are now considered vintage (maybe even antique)!! It was quite shocking ;) I have collected far too many treasures and want to find new homes for them so I can enjoy my retirement.

Thank you so much for visiting my vintage shop, " VintageByZehner ". I love treasure hunting, so check back often to see what I've found. I try to add new items every week. If you are searching for something in particular, let me know as I might have it or will keep an eye out for you. If you are buying a gift and sending it directly to someone else, let me know.
I invite you to also check out my other shop where I list items I make by hand from clay, cloth, or whatever I'm currently creating with: http://www.etsy.com/shop/MixedMediaByZehner .
I have facebook pages set up for both shops and nothing would thrill me more than a post to my page showing what you bought in my etsy shop and how it looks with your home decor, etc. On my vintage facebook page I also post decorating/yard ideas and projects I stumble across and think I might like to try someday.

Payment
Payment is expected at time of purchase, and several payment options are available at checkout. I am required to collect sales tax if you live in Texas.
Shipping
I ship within 2-5 business days USPS after receiving your order. I pack very carefully and so far have had no breakage. As soon as the item is shipped, Etsy will send you an email with a tracking number. At this time, I ship only within the USA, but I would consider shipping to a few other countries by special request through Etsy convo, with the understanding that I am not responsible for any taxes or custom fees charged by your country, or delays or packages lost during shipping.
Refunds and Exchanges
My goal is 5 star customer satisfaction and I do hope that if you are not happy with a purchase you will let me know. I try hard to keep 5 star ratings. I take as many photos as needed to clearly show the item, so I do hope you will study the photos and read the description carefully before ordering. For refunds, you are responsible for shipping costs both ways. I will refund cost of the item only, but not the shipping costs, and only if the item is returned in the same condition I sent it out and returned within 2 weeks. Vintage items are "used" and not perfect. I describe them well so that you know in advance if they are well worn, soiled, have chips, tears, etc.
I package breakables very, very carefully, and have had no breakage or complaints, but I can't control handling enroute, so, in the event something does arrive broken, you will need to take photos of the damaged package before opening and of the broken item after opening. The post office will not reimburse even if insured, without the photos so I cannot proceed until you send photos. All communication must be through Etsy convos.
Additional policies and FAQs
All vintage items are sold 'as is' so please check the description and photos carefully. If you are not satisfied with your purchase I will refund the purchase price (excluding shipping) upon the return of an item (you pay all shipping costs) within 2 weeks. Sorry, but I cannot afford to pay for shipping costs for returned items and offer no guarantees, although I am willing to work with you if the fault is mine.
