Announcement    If you have been following this, you may know that I lost my source for packing materials due to Covid-19 closing down our recycling center, and I have been struggling to find a source. However, due to the kindness of strangers, I now have enough to keep shipping for a few more weeks. I cannot afford to do what I do if I have to buy all new materials. I hope and pray we all stay safe and sane. I think I am struggling with the latter! Thank you for understanding. Fred

I added a new section entitled "Franciscan Desert Rose" where we are listing dinnerware in the Desert Rose pattern. These items are selling more quickly than I anticipated, I think because nearly all pieces are early California made. This pattern was introduced by Gladding, McBean & Co. in California in 1941 in their Franciscan Ware line. Most of our items are from the 1940s and 1950s. This pattern turned out to be an all time world-record seller for casual dinnerware.

Vintage with Soul is a collection of unique, collectable and humorous vintage finds. You will find an assortment of stunning vintage glassware, pottery and china, as well as a variety of other items, mostly from the 1940s through the 1970s, but we are working hard to obtain late 19th and early 20th century items.

I will entertain any reasonable offer. I am very likely to accept an offer where multiple items are involved. Just use the "Ask A Question" or "Contact Owner" links. You are under no obligation, even if I accept your offer, for a full 24 hours. I will hold the item on which you make an offer for at least 24 hours.

PLEASE READ ALL SHIPPING INFORMATION:

We have converted all of our listings to Etsy's "calculated shipping" so that when you enter your zip code to the right of the photos on any listing where it says "Shipping," you will see the actual cost to ship to you using the U.S. Postal Service. When you check out, you will see more detail to include all available shipping options for that particular item. You choose the method of shipping. It has been a lot of work to implement, but now there is, for the most part, no more guesswork on shipping costs. You may find a few listings where this system does not work, typically when ordering multiples of the same item, or a larger order with different items. All you have to do is give me your zip code and I will give you the correct cost, with no obligations.
We reserve the right to notify you of the correct cost any time it is incorrect, i.e., too low. Of course, you are under no obligation to complete the purchase if you do not want to accept the new cost, and we will refund your money quickly. In purchasing multiple items, the system might even overcharge you. Rest assured that we recalculate every shipment before mailing, and will refund any excess charge, if it exceeds $1.00.

If you are confused about shipping costs, or wonder if the shipping quote you see is wrong, please use the "Ask a Question" or "Contact Shop Owner" buttons, and we will be happy to answer any questions about shipping or the item itself.

I will ship internationally; however, you must contact me prior to purchase for the shipping cost to any country other than the United States . I have been routinely shipping to Canada; however it has just come to light that with Etsy's surcharge on shipping cost to the seller (me), and the fact that shipping to Canada is so very expensive, I will have to add a surcharge to your purchase. It will be no more than 5% of the actual cost, but may be less depending on the amount of the order. This may also apple to other countries as well on a case by case basis. Please understand that I am not trying to make money on shipping; every sale actually cost me part of the shipping. If you contact me prior to ordering, I will tell you the cost with no obligation to buy. I will also update the listing with your cost as quickly as possible. We take no responsibility for any additional cost associated with international shipments.

Old & Young Love Items From Our Past

My two adult daughters and I all love old things. None of us have a house big enough to collect AND keep all the cool stuff we come across . . . so we found Etsy as one way to enjoy acquiring all these wonderful things, and then pass them on to others who share our enthusiasm, or at least our love for any given item.

I started collecting crystal and other clear glass items about ten years ago. It was hard to keep to only one or two types of glassware. Other things crept in like china and porcelain. Before I knew it, I had quite a variety of unrelated items. It took a while to focus. But, now I buy most anything vintage that I see and like, hoping that someone else will enjoy.

    I am retired, and enjoy the hunt for unusual and interesting old things. I'm partial to clear glass ware. My own collection includes mostly covered candy dishes, compotes, and trinket boxes, along with a sampling of plates, bowls, and more.

Shop policies

Last updated on April 12, 2016
We want our customers to be happy with their purchase, so we do our best to describe our items. We are not experts. We describe what we see, and include information from our own research, and try to be as accurate as possible. We do make mistakes. We try to attribute unmarked pieces to the maker based on available information, but this is more art than science. We try to convey all the characteristics and flaws of an item. Look at the pictures carefully, as they are part of the description. Please make sure that you read the description carefully before purchasing an item. We cannot warrant this type of information to be totally accurate. All of our items are sold AS-IS, since they are all old and used. Expect some minor flaws on vintage and antique items, even if they are not mentioned in the description.

Returns and exchange details
If you are not happy with your purchase for any reason, we will accept returns for shop credit or exchange, but shipping both ways is on you! The only exception to this policy is if the item's condition is substantially different as that described. In that unlikely event, we would refund everything including return shipping. Any returned item must be received in the same condition as sent. Again, I am a reasonable person, so let me know if you have a problem with your item and I will talk with you to resolve the issue. All of our shipments are insured. If yours is damaged, please let us know quickly.
Payment
We accept Direct Pay through Etsy by credit card, as well as through PayPal. Payment is expected at checkout.
Shipping
PLEASE READ ALL SHIPPING INFORMATION:

We have converted all of our listings to Etsy's new "calculated shipping" so that when you enter your zip code on the "Shipping & Policies" tab on any listing, you will see the actual cost to ship to you by USPS Priority Mail (normally). When you check out, you will see more detail to include all available shipping options for that particular item. It has been a lot of work to implement, but now there is no more guesswork on shipping costs.

Please note that this new system is not pefect, especially when you purchase more than one item. We reserve the right to change the shipping cost and notify you of the correct cost. Of course, you are under no obligation to complete the purchase if you do not want to accept the new cost, and we will refund your money quickly. In purchasing multiple items, the system might even overcharge you. Rest assured that we recalculate every shipment before mailing, and will refund any excess charge, if it exceeds $1.00.

If you are confused about shipping costs, or wonder if the shipping quote you see is wrong, please use the "Ask a Question" or "Contact Shop Owner" buttons, and we will be happy to answer any questions about shipping or the item itself.

We will ship internationally; however, you must contact us for the shipping cost to any country other than Canada prior to purchase (Canada is included in our current shipping profiles). We will update the listing with your cost as quickly as possible. We take no responsibility for any additional cost associated with international shipments.
Additional policies and FAQs
It is the buyer's responsibility to document damaged shipments. Please provide photos of the box unopened if there is obvious damage to it. Also, take photos of the opened box, packing material, and, of course, of the item itself.
