Item details

This listing is for one set of 5 vintage buttermilk lids. They come from a nostalgic time in the early to mid 1900s when milk was delivered to your doorstep in glass bottles. They are made of very sturdy thin cardboard. They are very old and have an aged discoloration, a few stains and scratches, but they are still in good shape. You will receive 5 lids (not necessarily the ones listed, but identical in designs and in good shape as these are. Some of the tabs are smooth, and some have a pull tab and a staple. You will receive a few of each.

If you order more than one item from my shop, the calculated shipping doesn't automatically adjust for multiple items, so you have two options:
1. Contact me through Etsy convo BEFORE you order, and I will set up a new listing for you with accurate shipping, or
2. Go ahead and place your order and I will adjust & refund the overage in shipping.

Thank you for stopping by!!

I ship as soon as possible on business days (USPS) after receiving your order. The listing shows 3-5 days because I have a day job, but I usually ship same day or next day if I can get a break from work to get to the post office.

I pack very carefully and so far have had no breakage. As soon as the item is shipped, Etsy will send you an email with a tracking number.


Payment is expected at time of purchase, and several payment options are available for you at checkout. I am required to collect sales tax if you live in Texas.

Please understand that I cannot accept cancellations if the product has already shipped which is usually the next day after I receive your order.

The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)

Conditions of return
Buyers are responsible for return shipping costs. If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value.
Additional return information
My goal is 5 star customer satisfaction and I do hope that if you are not happy with a purchase you will let me know. I take as many photos as needed to clearly show the item, so I do hope you will study the photos and read the descriptions carefully before ordering.

For refunds, please understand that I am a very small business and I cannot absorb shipping costs because you change your mind. You are responsible for shipping costs both ways for returns. I will refund cost of the item only, but not the shipping costs, and only if the item is returned at your expense in the same condition I sent it out and returned within 5 days.

Vintage items are "used" and not perfect. I describe them well so that you know in advance if they are well worn, soiled, have chips, tears, etc. I also describe measurements so that you know the size before ordering.

I package breakables very, very carefully, and have had no breakage or complaints, but I can't control handling enroute, so, in the event something does arrive broken, you will need to take photos of the damaged package before opening and of the broken item after opening. The post office will not reimburse even if insured, without proof that they are at fault, so I cannot proceed until you send photos. All communication must be through Etsy convos.

Additional policies

All vintage items are sold 'as is' so please check the description and photos of these "used items" carefully before ordering. If you are not satisfied with your purchase I will refund the purchase price (excluding shipping) upon the return of the item (you pay shipping costs both ways) within 7 days.
