Item details

Have you ever visited the Thimble Islands off the coast of Branford, CT in Long Island Sound? This keepsake wood sign would be the perfect memento of your visit.

One of our talented local artisans painted the name of the coastal island chain on a found bottle shaped board in the shape of a whale. Cute!

A hole is drilled through the narrow top of the board with some twine for hanging, or you can lean it sideways as shown in the photo. We'll be happy to add some sawtooth hangers to the back if you request prior to shipment.

Measures Approx: 23.75" x 5"

We strive to ship purchased items ASAP - usually within 1 business day after payment confirmation. Tracking codes are provided to every buyer at the time of shipment. We normally do not require signature for package delivery unless its deemed appropriate for high value items or requested in advance by the buyer.


The shipping quote is for USPS First Class, Priority or Parcel service to locations on the continental USA only. We have to cover our cost to the longest distance, so if there is a shipping overage of $2 or more we may refund the overage (unless special packing material was required to ensure safe delivery).

Overnight shipping requests may be accommodated for an additional fee and quoted prior to transmittal.


Heavy and unusually large/heavy items OR merchandise that is fragile may be shipped via a more economical method such as UPS GROUND or FEDEX GROUND.


Book sets will ship separately as USPS MEDIA MAIL to take advantage of the economical rates, which can take 2-9 days for delivery.


Non-domestic shipping quotes are happily provide upon request if not already included in the listing information. Shipping viability will be at our discretion in determining the practicality for each item based upon size, weight and fragility.

International customs/import duty is the responsibility of the recipient and should be considered prior to purchase and shipment authorization. Customs Declaration forms will state the purchase price of the contents as the declared value. We will not falsify item value at buyer request since this negates our actual loss on an insurance claim should the package be undelivered or damaged in transit.


We package carefully, using recycled materials and containers. That usually means bubble wrap, shrink wrap, styrofoam, foam peanuts, newspaper and cardboard. Breakables are handled with strict attention and are insured automatically by us if the value of the item exceeds $25.00.


PayPal and major credit cards are accepted for payment through Etsy Direct Checkout.

If we are informed of any processing delays, we reserved the right to hold or cancel the transaction and relist the item if the payment is denied by the credit processing agent.

Brightwood Lane specializes in vintage items: we do our best to describe, measure and photograph the unique pieces as accurately as possible so that the buyer is aware of the condition of the merchandise. Once the buyer agrees to purchase, the sale is considered to be final. Please read the descriptions carefully and contact us with any questions or requests.


Reserves may be placed on the item and will be held for 48 hours unless a different time span is requested via convo by a buyer. We reserve the right to inform the buyer, remove the RESERVE and reopen the listing at any time.

PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE A RESERVE ITEM INTENDED FOR ANOTHER CUSTOMER. If you are interested in a reserved item, we will be happy to take your backup request as a second optional reserve should the first customer's reserve be deemed extinct.


Discount coupons will be honored and applied during the checkout process. If a coupon has expired or did not apply properly, the buyer may contact us for price adjustment. We reserve the right to set the expiry date for offered coupons.


We usually ship VERY QUICKLY so the window for cancellation is very short. Once a package has been turned over to the shipper it is considered to be a FINAL SALE. Refunds are processed through Etsy Direct Checkout or PayPal, whichever method the buyer used for the original transaction.

Returns & exchanges

We hope that you love your purchase as much as we do! Vintage items often have small flaws that are intrinsic to the preowned and aged nature. Etsy allows sellers to post 5 photos for each listing so we strive to depict as many angles as possible for the true representation of merchandise condition with approximate measurements and descriptions.

Decorative items are purchased "As Is" and non-refundable. We do our best to communicate any unique characteristics prior to shipment, but once the item leaves our hands, we transfer ownership permanently. It's your choice to love it, or resell it.

Clothing and hats that are intended as wearable (where fit may be an issue) may be returned for refund, however the buyer agrees to pay the initial shipping fee as well as the return shipping. Buyer must notify us via Etsy convo within 24 hours of receiving shipment. When returned, the item must be in identical condition as purchased: repair or cleaning cost to restore item to original condition will be deducted from the refund. Accessories such as handbags, scarves and jewelry do not qualify for wearable item refund. Please Convo prior to purchase if you think that fit might be an issue so we can convey more accurate measurements.


If a package and contents are damaged while in the hands of the shipping agent, the case should be reported immediately to us via Etsy Convo.

Digital photographs of the item and the packaging condition are required to support any damage claim and should be sent via Etsy Convo or email. Replacement or remuneration options will be determined only after photos are supplied so that we can file the proper insurance claim requirements or document the inventory loss for our tax records.

If we have a similar item, we may be able to exchange it, but vintage items are usually unique, so that is not guaranteed. We'll do our best to adjust the transaction accordingly. If the items is deemed to be repairable, we reserve the right to request a return of the item prior to refund (at our expense). If the item was broken beyond repair or reasonable valuation, we may not require the item return. Refunds are processed through Etsy Direct Checkout or PayPal, whichever method the buyer used for the original transaction.
