We want you to be completely confident and satisfied with your purchase as we are in recirculating these cool old things.
So, to keep us all happy lil campers, we need you to fully understand we rehome cool old things by selling them! These goodies are antique and vintage and retro...they've all been previously owned, loved, used, and sometimes abused! Some items work, some we test, some we don't, some we clean, some we don't, some have beautiful characteristics from being previously loved, some have been untouched and kept in a vault...although each piece is madly unique, they all have one attribute in common - they're all ridiculously, imperfectly perfectly cool!
Our point being - these fun treasures are pre-loved and we proudly and happily sell the lil beauties AS IS to, you, their new lover.
We pinkie swear promise to do everything our mere human powers grant us to responsibly describe and iPhone 6+ photograph our goodies as accurately as possible and are not responsible for you shirking your question-asking responsibilities.

The Seekers Fine Print:
Vintage, Retro, Antique Disclaimer…
Any vintage, retro, and antique piece can be the finest addition to your collection; the crazy start to a new collection; the piece you’ve been searching for high and low; that piece de resistance that you have no idea what to do with, but can’t resist it all the same; the piece you can’t find anywhere else.
Classic items, such as vintage, retro, and antique pieces, are pre-owned, pre-loved, and typically one-of-a-kind in the way they were loved, utilized, and saved throughout the years. The individual and unique combination of love, usage, and saving specific to each lovely chuck of history leads to imperfect perfections and perfect imperfections.
These pre-loved gems can also show their age, as they are meant to – from regular wear and tear to a runaway bead or crystal to a broken this and a bent that.
We make every attempt to accurately photograph and describe all our vintage, retro, and antique goodies as well as the era in which it saw its first heyday through our years of experience and long nerdy nights of research. But, hey, we’re human and we too have our perfect imperfections and cannot always guarantee the exact age of an item, nor can we make a promise on longevity of use - meaning in your normal use of our pre-loved goods, there is no guarantee how long such a loved item will last without a little love being added to it.
With all that said, our goal is to make you a happy camper. If you find we have grossly and inaccurately described an item that has caused you grief, please contact us within 14 days. We will accept returns if we have in fact grossly and inaccurately described item within 14 day of sale only and will work with you to make sure you are a satisfied shopper!
