"repurposed, not forgotten..."

GUARANTEED AS LISTED OR YOUR MONEY BACK!
My items are vintage and have had previous owners. Because of the age of certain items, there may be visible wear and use and I will do my best to describe these to you. I will never sell an item in poor condition.

Shipping from United States

I try to absorb some of the shipping cost on items which are very costly to ship, so I usually end up paying some of the shipping costs out of my shop's "piggy bank". Doing this insures I may offer my items at reasonable prices without building in shipping costs.
I usually ship the same day I get your order, at the most it is two days. I insure every package I ship, with the exception, the item purchased is $10.00 or less. I take great care in making sure your purchase arrives safely and quickly.

Refunds

GUARANTEED AS LISTED OR YOUR MONEY BACK!
All of our pre-loved jewelry and vintage items are thoroughly cleaned and lightly polished. They may show some light wear, marks, blemishes or flaws appropriate to their age. Gemstones may have commercially acceptable inclusions. Refer to the photos for details.
All returns are shipped at buyer's expense.

Additional

I try to use all recycled and/or re-purposed boxes, baskets, papers, and fillers for all my shipping keeping our environment safe. Please remember to recycle what you receive from me in packaging materials too!
I thank you and the Earth thanks you....
