Announcement   100% VINTAGE and ANTIQUE WAREHOUSE. Over 800 items in stock. Specializing in mid century home decor. Large stock of vintage paintings, quilts, afghans and kitchen items. Come browse the memories.

I live in the small, historic town of Carlisle, Pennsylvania. Carlisle is home to the US Army War College, Army Heritage Museum, Central PA Youth Ballet and Dickinson College. In the summer months, Carlisle boasts the largest collector car show series in the eastern USA.

Carlisle is proud to be the home and final resting place of Medal of Honor and Purple Heart recipient Sergeant First Class Randall Shughart. He was awarded the Medal of Honor, posthumously, for his valor as part of a two man team that successfully rescued Black Hawk pilot Michael Durant. Actor Johnny Good plays Randall Shughart in Durant's movie Black Hawk Down.

Neighboring towns include; Gettysburg, Harrisburg, Hershey and Lancaster. My shop is located 50 miles north of the Mason Dixon line; the dividing line that separated the north and the south during the civil war. Many Carlisle homes served as part of the underground railroad and gave respite to slaves seeking freedom in the north.
This part of the country is also home to a few conservative religious groups; such as the Amish and Mennonites. Within these groups, gender lines are very defined. The men are skilled carpenters and the women are talented seamstresses. You will see many items in my shop, especially the quilts, are made by these very talented craftsmen/women.

I spend much of my time visiting local and regional shops, flea markets and auctions. I also travel extensively throughout rural, northeastern part of the country searching for unique, vintage pieces.
Most of my items were purchased in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, West Virgina, New York and Connecticut. Thanks so much for visiting. I hope you find something that touches you. Enjoy your stay!

About

Old Soul and Sweet Spaniel Open Vintage Shop

After 15 years of volunteering and working in hospice (Historically speaking, I'm a Master's level grief counselor), my therapy dog, Maslow, and I decided we were ready to take a break.

I love OLD stuff, including old homes. I've always been a collector and had an extensive amount of vintage, handmade items that I had acquired over the years. I particularly love architectural salvage and antique lighting.

I have restored four (1924 Victorian, 1919 Craftsman, 1969 Colonial, 1936 Cottage) old homes. My first project was an old Victorian that I purchased near Gettysburg, PA. When I finished the home, I realized that I wanted to do it again. I sold it very easily and purchased my next project. I enjoy restoring homes with period hardware and lighting salvage authentic to the home. Check my facebook page for photos of home restorations.

I began to organize a lot of my "inventory" and list it. I now have 800+ items on etsy and am actively listing and selling every day.

I continue to spend A LOT of time searching for very special items to add to my shop. Quality is very important and it's very difficult to find lots of high quality vintage. Fortunately, I love to travel and often can be found driving around the East Coast with Maslow, in tow.

So if you see us, say "hi" and tell us a story. It's okay if it's a sad one. Maslow and I will understand.

Shop policies

Last updated on April 6, 2014
Thank you for taking the time to look at my shop policies. I have carefully written and updated them to provide the beginning of good communication between the etsy community and myself. I love selling on etsy and very much enjoy interacting with people from all over the USA and throughout the world. Etsy is such a wonderful and unique tool of sharing.
In that vein, members of m shop and myself will interact with all individuals with respect and kindness. We will respresent our items honestly and accurately. We will provide additional information and photographs at your request. We are happy to communicate with you before the sale to ensure all your expectations are met and you are happy with your purchase.
Unfortunately, vintage items are difficult to sell online because describing them is subjective. What one person thinks is in great condition, other could think is only fair condition. One person may love chippy paint, while another sees it as damage to the item.
To help with this, I shoot all my items with a Nikon D300 with a prime lens. I use natural light or a very large off camera flash. I do not photoshop my pictures. I will send you many, many more photos, at your request.

I travel throughout the east coast looking for my items and am often out of town for several days at a time. If you need your item immediately, please let me know.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
I hope you find something special here.

Additional policies and FAQs
I LOVE vintage and travel throughout the east coast so that I can offer unique and affordable goods in my store.
My store, whitepicket, offers hundreds of items ranging from 20-150 years old. These items are NOT NEW and are NOT INTENDED TO LOOK NEW. If you want new items, please do not order from me. I do not sell new items.

POLICY ON LAMPS AND ELECTRONICS:
I sell a lot of old lighting and lamps. All of my lamps work unless otherwise stated. I test each lamp before I purchase it. After I purchase the lamp, I test it by turning it on and off severals times and keeping it on constantly for 5 hours. I want to make sure that the wiring is safe. If the lamp turns on and does not spark or get hot; I list it in my store.
Most lamps I sell have NOT been rewired.
The only way to ensure that old lighting is in 100% reliable is to have it rewired. Rewiring typically costs around $25.00. This is the buyers responsibilty.
Lamps in this shop are sold "as is."


POLICY ON VINTAGE LINENS:
Vintage linens are a large part of my etsy business. I purchased, wash, sanatize and sell vintage linens. Many of these items are made of natural fibers and are handmade several decades ago. It is rare to find vintage linens in MINT condition and they are very expensive. I offer a large variety of quilts and blankets in various conditions. All of them are used and in used condition. My summer quilts are all priced under $100. If they were in great condition, the price would triple. Please do not purchase a $60.00 antique quilt if you are interested in one in great condition. I think they are beautiful when they look shabby and try to keep my prices reasonable for those that agree with me!


POLICY ON VINTAGE PAINTINGS:
The paintings sold in this shop are antique and vintage items. They are NOT NEW and NOT INTENDED TO LOOK NEW. If you want something in new condition, please do not purchase paintings from this shop.

Lastly...

WE LOVE, LOVE, LOVE OLD STUFF. WE LOVE THE HISTORY, THE TEXTURE AND THE DURABILITY OF OLD STUFF!! WE ARE FORGIVING OF IMPERFECTIONS BECAUSE WE LOVE OLD STUFF.
