Greetings and welcome to ‘Whatnots & Such’!

Many of the items you will find in ‘Whatnots & Such’ have attached themselves to us over the past 36 years. A great number of these items have been inherited from my dear mother-in-law, three grandmothers, and one great-grandmother. If you add to these the ‘need to haves’ which I have personally purchased over the years, what I have is a whole lot of whatnots and such...and no more room! I am offering what I simply can't hold on to anymore and hopefully you will find something here that you simply can't live without... :0}

By definition, the word 'vintage' means: Characterized by excellence, maturity, and enduring appeal; classic....or, old. Therefore, please note that everything here is in true vintage form. It has been loved, used, and then stored away for many a moon and obviously will come to you in all it's glory.... ready to begin a new chapter.

I have attempted to describe each item as accurately as I can, including any bit of known history. I will provide detailed pictures with numerous angles of each listing; however, if you should want more pictures or information, please don't hesitate to convo me.


Soon to open is my other shop, Nanny’s Cottage, where you can find an assortment of graphics for all your artistically crafted whatnots!

I accept PayPal and credit cards through Etsy direct checkout. It would be appreciated if payment was made within 24 hours. If payment is not received after that, and I have not received a convo, item will be relisted. Please note that items paid for by PayPal echeck will be held until payment clears.
I am also now accepting personal checks. As with the PayPal echeck, items will be held until payment clears.
Purchases will be shipped out as soon as possible and always within two business days (unless waiting for Paypal echecks or personal checks to clear). I ship USPS and try to choose the most economical route. If it's only a difference of a few pennies, I will ship Priority. All purchases will be shipped with delivery confirmation which will be included in the shipping price. If you want your item insured, please convo me to let me know.

International orders are welcome ~ Please convo me with your location for an exact shipping & insurance quote.

The shipping charges are estimates as Etsy has no shipping calculator to figure exact charges and are figured on East to West Coast rates. Overages of more than $1.00 will be refunded back through your PayPal address or directly to your credit card.

~Combined shipping is available at no extra charge if I feel that items can travel safely together.~

A convo will be sent to you as soon as the item has been shipped and a tracking number will be provided.
Refunds and Exchanges
As a general rule, all sales are final. Please note that all items are photographed to portray details as clearly as possible and descriptions have included any minor flaw which may exist. If you need more photos, just let me know - I would be happy to email them to you.

Please keep in mind that, in general, vintage items have years of loving use attached to them and many reflect such in their appearance. After all, isn't that why we love them so?

I am not responsible for damages or losses incurred during shipping. Packages will be very carefully wrapped to protect each item. Delivery confirmation is included with the shipping price. If you would like insurance on your purchase, please convo me and it will be included with the shipping fee.
