With baby in tow, we go...
Initially, I opened the shop as a hobby to support my thrifting addiction. I love to change out my decor with my new finds and it was piling up. I worked at a local crime lab as a technician full time so the shop was just my fun little project.
In 2015, we found out that we were going to have a daughter that has Down Syndrome and was going to need a lot of therapy. I was faced with the conundrum of whether or not to go back to work. I decided to take my chances and turn this little shop into a full time business and we haven't looked back.
Caroline and I have a blast finding new and exciting treasures to fill the shop. Since she was 6 weeks old (She rides in a carrier on my back) we have gone "hunting" in flea markets, estate sales, thrift shops, you name it. We fill up the truck up at every opportunity we get and I feel truly blessed and grateful to do so.
We hunt often and hard so if you are looking for something in particular let me know and I'll put a pba out for it. I may already have it as I have tons that haven't been listed yet (death piles ugh!!).
Hope you have fun browsing our shop as much as we have fun filling it.
If you’re looking for anything vintage baby, Caroline has her own shop which can be found at

Accepted payment methods
If you receive your item damaged and purchased priority, please take a picture of the damage. Send me a convo with the picture attached. Do not throw away any packaging or broken item as the post office may want to see it. You may have to fill out an affidavit explaining the condition in which you received the item.
We use Etsy's calculated shipping module. The quote you receive at checkout is based upon the item's weight, size, and your location. We carefully weigh and measure every item to ensure your shipping quote is accurate before we list it. Some items cannot be shipped internationally due to their large size. Items over 4 pounds must ship via Priority International. There is no tracking when it leaves the US.
If the shipping address is different from the address provided through Etsy, please include the correct shipping address at time of payment. If no updated address is received, I will ship to the address listed in Etsy. If item is returned undelivered due to inaccurate address, the buyer will be responsible for additional shipping funds to cover the cost of reshipment to the correct address.
If you are purchasing more than one item, I can sometimes combine items and save you some money on shipping. The possibility of combined shipment depends upon the size and fragility of the items. If the item is fragile, I will have to ship separately to ensure it is reached to you in one piece.
Returns and exchanges

Returns are accepted if the item is received back to North Fork Vintage in its original condition as it was sent. Buyer is responsible for the return shipping charges. Refund will only be granted for the item itself. No refunds for the original shipping costs.
