About SongbirdSalvation

On Etsy since 2008

Turning what you love into a business is pretty damn cool.

I cannot keep every beautiful vintage item that I find, much to my dismay, and that is why I opened my Etsy shop. This way I can keep these precious objects just for a little while, until I can find a forever home for them.

I began collecting things as a child and was fascinated by old objects that held some secrets of their past lives. That fascination has only gotten stronger over the years and I love to decorate with these items, surrounding myself with what I find pleasing to my eye.

When my old house could not hold anymore, I decided that it was time to start selling the things that I could live without. It was very satisfying to find others who loved these items enough to want to buy them and I knew that they were going to a good home. I then realized that I could shop for new, old things and make a business out of something that I love and so I began to sell on Etsy in 2008. It has been a great experience and I have gotten to know a lot of wonderful, like-minded people.

I find myself drawn to antique paper items; perhaps because they were never meant to last which makes them seem more precious. I am also in love with the 1920's and am always looking for antique candy boxes, magazines and boudoir items from that period. Holiday items, specifically Valentine's Day and Easter are my specialty and I always have my shop loaded with beautiful and sometimes kitschy holiday toys and treasures. I only sell what I love which makes this business fun for me and I hope that is reflected in my little shop. Thank you for visiting Songbird Salvation!

My philosophy is to treat my customers as I would like to be treated and always be honest.

Accepted payment methods

Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I gladly accept cancellations
Request a cancellation within: 4 hours of purchase
I don't accept returns or exchanges
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Returns and exchange details
Please read item description carefully. I am very honest about condition as I want my customers to be happy with their purchases. I usually don't do refunds unless I have inaccurately described the item.
If an item has arrived damaged, please let me know within 14 days of receiving the damaged item and keep all packaging for insurance claims.
Payment
I take Paypal, credit cards and Etsy gift cards.
Shipping
I try not to overcharge for shipping but I do sometimes over-estimate (especially on international) and in that case I will refund to your credit card/Paypal account anything over $1. I realize that there is a big difference in international shipping charges so if you are overseas and are interested in something, please feel free to ask me a specific shipping charge to your country and I will quote you the least expensive shipping option.

The items that I sell are vintage and have a previous life. They are not perfect and I try my best to disclose their flaws.
I do not restore these items first and aside from a light wipe down or dusting, I sell the items like I receive them. If you are looking for perfect, this may not be the shop for you.

I mail greeting cards in a photo mailer and include tracking.
This method costs a bit more but I feel good knowing that your item will get to you in the same condition that it left me in.
These photo mailers are considered parcels and when shipping international, they are a bit expensive. If you would prefer to have your card sent in a regular envelope, I will use a light backing and it will be sent in a plastic sleeve. It will be considerably cheaper but not as safe and I cannot be held responsible if it is damaged in shipping.

I ship several times a week but if you need something in a hurry, please let me know and we can discuss upgraded shipping options.
Additional policies and FAQs
**I am okay with reserving items for up to three days. If you need a bit longer, please let me know and we can work something out. If after three days, I do not hear from you and you have not purchased the item, I will assume that you are no longer interested and will remove the reserve so that someone else can purchase it.
**I am happy to gift wrap items-please let me know and we can work out the specifics.

**I have a large surplus of vintage envelopes. If you purchase a greeting card or valentine from my shop and would like an envelope, please let me know and I will try to accommodate you at no extra charge.

**Free layaway is available on purchases over $50 (excluding shipping).
I require a minimum of 1/4 down and the remaining balance split into payments over the next three months. Once the merchandise is paid for, your items will be mailed to you.
If a customer fails to make scheduled payments or cancels a layaway, the merchandise is returned to inventory and the customer forfeits all payments previously made.
If you would like to customize your layaway plan to better suit your needs (weekly or bi-weekly payments, etc..), please let me know and we can make arrangements.
