About

I somehow fell into this. I had no idea I would fall in love so quickly or so completely, but here I am, two decades since my first venture into vintage, and I still love every bit of it.

Oddly enough, history wasn't my favorite subject -- so dull having to memorize what war happened when, following a curriculum someone else deemed important. Now, I can't get enough of it. I love the parts I get to play...detective, scientist, explorer/adventurer, curator, appreciator, & preservationist. Each little object I find sends me down a rabbit hole through time, scouring antiquarian archives for clues & examining each piece with microscopic intensity until its secrets are revealed. Maybe I'm just the nose-in-a-book nerd I've always been, but I think this is great fun:)

There is so much beauty in the world. We come from a rich history of incredible artisans and talented craftspeople. I love finding these forgotten parts of history, the pieces worth preserving. And I love each and every one of you for giving me this grand adventure. Because I can seek & discover to my heart's content, send these little treasures off to their loving new homes, and then begin the adventure all over again. So thank you, from the bottom of my vintage-loving heart <3

Thank you for visiting Vintagewise ♥

I'm Maya, the finder, photographer, researcher, shipping engineer, etc...whatever you need here, I'm your go-to gal. It's never a dull moment, and I enjoy all of it, from finding great vintage to making sure you get your item quickly and nicely wrapped. I believe kindness is the best policy, and I never forget for a moment that without happy customers I wouldn't be able to do what I love.

Questions about your order?
Please if you have any problems with your order.
I hope you'll love your Vintagewise purchase, but just in case, if something doesn't fit, if it's the wrong color -- whatever the reason, I'm happy to accept returns as long as the item is mailed back in the original, unused condition within one week of receipt (for buyers in the EU, please contact me within 14 days of receipt if you wish to return your item).

Due to the delicate nature of antique jewelry, all fine jewelry returns must be sent back fully insured and securely wrapped, and any attached security tags must still be intact in order to receive a full refund. If the security tag has been removed or tampered with, a 25% restocking fee may be charged.

Please note shipping costs aren't refundable unless I've made a mistake in the listing, and if that ever happens, I'll reimburse you for the shipping cost plus the full purchase price as soon as I've received the item.
Shipping
One of the many things I love about vintage is how it's good for the earth, so it's important to me that my packaging be earth-friendly too. I re-use shipping boxes and packing supplies, but only if they are clean and sturdy, and I keep all plastic use to a minimum (mostly just tape and {clean and re-used} bubble wrap if necessary). For jewelry and other small items, I primarily use new boxes, although all of the shipping boxes, tissue paper, and kraft paper I purchase are made from post-consumer recycled content (and can be recycled again).

All orders are shipped within one business day, and insurance is included in the shipping cost. At check-out, you'll have the option of choosing your preferred shipping method and delivery speed. The tracking number for your package will be automatically emailed to you after your order has shipped.

For international buyers, it's important to know your local government may charge additional taxes or fees on your purchase. These are not charged by Vintagewise or included in the purchase price, so before you purchase, please be aware that any Customs charges, duties, fees, and/or import taxes are the responsibilty of the buyer.

I love what I do and I love getting to share it with you! Thank you for stopping by, and thank you most especially for your appreciation of these beautiful old things ♥
