Wonderful early pincushion c. 1900 , part of a collection of heart pincushions that I am listing. This one measures about 4 & 1/2" by 3 & 1/4", and has an attached handle. The velvet shows a lot of wear to the nap, but no holes or leakage. Pretty pink-lavender color!
Shop Policies: I promise that everything I list on Etsy as "vintage" is a genuine vintage item or older. I will list any flaw I see so you can truly know what you're getting. But sometimes the technology fails in the pictures or the posting of them, so I try to disclose fully and let you decide if the item is what you desire. But in the event that you are still not satisfied and the transaction has been completed, I offer a full refund. I believe that you can buy with confidence, knowing that I will make every effort to be fair and accurate.
I invite you to ask questions, which I answer as promptly as possible.
SHIPPING & HANDLING: I LIKE TO GIVE YOU THE BEST DEAL ON SHIPPING POSSIBLE--CALCULATED BY YOUR PARCEL'S WEIGHT AND ZONE IS BEST--SO I ASK YOU TO CONTACT ME WITH YOUR ADDRESS AND ZIP CODE. I usually offer at least two types of shipping, Priority Mail or Parcel Post and will combine like items, that is, items that can be safely packed together. If the package is light, it is possible to send First Class or if it is a book I can use Media Mail--I try to consider all possibilities to help save on shipping costs for you.
Nobody wants to receive a broken item so I wrap all things carefully with extra attention to fragile items--I use sturdy boxes, foam peanuts and bubble wrap. International buyers: you are responsible for any customs fees or duties and please realize that there may be delays due to customs. Thank you for your cooperation. Please contact me before payment as I will calculate the shipping for you. I usually try to ship on the next day after cleared payment is received and on Saturday( our PO is open until noon on Sat.) but sometimes I will need to wait until the following Monday and if that is a holiday then the next day. MD buyers will pay 6% MD state sales tax.
