About

RESCUE, RESTORE, RECYCLE, REPURPOSE....

With the onset of debilitating physical issues facilitating the end of my career, I began desperately searching for a means to sustain me. From the years of my youth growing up on a farm in rural Pennsylvania, I have gravitated toward vintage items, collecting wonderful cast-offs, marveling at women's handiwork and surrounding myself with the quality of old workmanship. And in doing so, I learned to rescue, restore, and re-purpose. My shop is based on the principles learned of the sustainability of farm life...using what you have!
My vision is to re-purpose the beauty of the past into treasures for your nest, fun things to grace your wardrobe, and happiness for your gardens! And to communicate as an old friend...package and mail with care and speed...and treat my customers as I want to be treated. So, come play in my store...feather your nest...and let me bring you joy!
Together we will celebrate sustainability!

Refunds and Exchanges
**REFUNDS AND EXCHANGES

The nature and charm of vintage is that it has been previously loved and may show the evidence of past use. All of our items are vintage or pre-owned and may have the accompanying bumps, dents, rust, etc. that give them their unique charm. We do our best to describe any flaws in the items in our written description, and we try to give you accurate photos so that you are comfortable with your purchase. Please feel free to contact us with any questions before purchase.
Should a refund be necessary, as decided by both buyer and seller, it will be for the item PRICE only as shipping costs are non-refundable.
The item must be returned, at the buyer’s expense, within 7 days. The item must be returned in the same condition and in its original packaging in order for a refund to be processed. We do not refund if item is damaged in return shipment and it is the buyer’s responsibility to insure items being returned.
If an order is unclaimed at the post office by the buyer and returned to us, the buyer will be charged for the return shipping plus an additional handling fee of 10% of the purchase price.

We do not offer refunds for items that are damaged during shipping. However, to protect your investment we insure all of our shipments to cover your losses in case something is damaged during shipping. Additionally, we provide you with tracking information immediately upon shipping your items in the unfortunate event you would need to provide that information to the carrier.
