About

New England vintage coming out of the closet

Lobster Bisque Vintage officially opened in August 2013 after years of hunting and collecting for vintage treasures in the cellars and barns across New England. My personal favorites are 60s and 70s 35mm rangefinder cameras, and I've amassed quite a few over the years! I also love all things insect, including unique beetle brooches and jewelry, and 80s toys.

I have two lines of non-vintage, new commercial supplies. One is a line of hand-selected hardware (knobs, pulls, escutcheon plates), with all the benefits of new items needed in larger quantities, but that pay homage to the designs and features of the past. I also carry vintage-inspired commercial packaging supplies, including kraft gift boxes and washi tape in retro inspired prints, like cameras, film strips, records, planets, and my favorites - insects and sea life!

You can find my new supply items in the "New Knobs and Hardware" and "New Supplies, Washi Tape" sections of my shop. Everything else is 100% vintage!

I live in southeastern New Hampshire in our first (vintage) home with my partner, Mike, and three crested geckos. We bought our home as a distressed property in May 2013 after living in Boston for eight years and it has been a sweaty and exasperating but exciting journey. We love New England, the outdoors, cars, state parks, home improvement projects, 20/20 Mysteries, robots, mixing old with new, and diners.

I hope you find many treasures in your visit today and that you can give an older item a new life in your own wardrobe, shelf, and heart. All items in Lobster Bisque are personally sourced, cleaned, photographed, listed, and packed by me.

Please visit the Lobster Bisque Vintage website for details on any upcoming sales.

Be good to each other and the earth!

Questions about your order?
Please if you have any problems with your order.
I want my customers to be happy and please contact me if there are any issues throughout your order. I accept returns postmarked within seven days of delivery on any item for any reason for purchase price refund.

The buyer pays return shipping and the item must be in the same condition as when delivered. I suggest purchasing delivery confirmation for returned items as it needs to make it back to me for the refund! Please contact me before returning an item so I can be on the lookout for the package.

I pack very carefully but sometimes things happen. Please try to open and inspect your purchases as soon as possible after delivery, and if there are any concerns please do not hesitate to send me a message.
Shipping
Domestic shipping
All domestic orders are shipped USPS First Class or Priority Mail within the stated processing time on each listing. Books may be shipped media mail if noted on the listing. Tracking and insurance are included.

Expedited shipping is available, please ask if it does not appear as an automatic upgrade when the item is in your cart. I do combine shipping whenever possible; if you add all the items you are interested in to your cart it should reflect a discount but you can also contact me with a list to make sure the amount is completely accurate.

International shipping
I love my international buyers! I ship anywhere my insurance covers and if import restrictions allow the particular item - if you don't see your country listed, please contact me for a quote. International orders are shipped using USPS First Class International (except for Russia, which requires Priority).

Delivery confirmation is available for some countries, and where available it will be used. Insurance is included for all international orders. International packages may take their sweet time arriving (2-8 weeks, depending on country) but are shipped promptly. Import taxes, tariffs, and fees are the buyer’s responsibility, please read your country's import guidelines.
Additional policies and FAQs
Pet Free / Smoke Free Home
All items are kept in my furred pet, perfume, and smoke free home. I do not use any room sprays or air fresheners.

Cleaning/Storage
All items have been cleaned to the best of my ability unless otherwise noted (usually for rustic, industrial type items such as rusty horseshoes, etc.) All garments are freshly laundered in unscented detergent and pressed or steamed unless otherwise noted.

Condition/Sizing
I take care to note the condition of each item, but these are true vintage items and some use wear is expected. Please read the description and consult photographs for any imperfections. I am happy to send more photographs if you would like to see a specific portion of the item or an imperfection in more detail. For clothing, vintage sizing differs from modern garment sizing and tag sizes are given for informational purposes only - please use the actual measurements to determine fit.

Reservations
I am happy to place an item on reserve for you for up to three days. Just ask!

Feedback
Etsy has implemented a new feedback system and I am now regretfully unable to leave you feedback. It is also my understanding Etsy may send you reminder messages about leaving feedback for me for your purchase - please accept my apologies for any additional messages as they come from Etsy and not from me.

Gift Wrapping
If you intend for your purchase to be a gift and would like it wrapped or a gift tag enclosed in the parcel, please let me know in the notes to seller field and I would be happy to gift wrap or box the item(s), for US orders only to avoid issues with customs.

Sales Tax
New Hampshire does not have a state sales tax so (most) purchasers are not charged sales tax. Live free or die! The exception to this is if you are in a state that has elected to charge sales tax for online orders, in which case you will be charged sales tax at checkout.

Local Pickup
Please contact me if you are local and would like to arrange a local pick up prior to purchasing.

Prop Stylists
If you are a prop stylist interested in rentals, please contact me for more information.
