Martin and Melanie give vintage and antique items a second chance in our Second WInd Shop
We love searching for vintage and antique treasures. Martin loves finding classic and unique teacups and china patterns. I love costume jewelry that is a reflection of different eras from the 1800s through the 1990s. Each piece tells a story about what was happening in that period of time from the Egyptian Revival period to the Victorian period, the Art Deco period as well as Mid Century classic styles.
Take your time, look around our shop and maybe you will find an old friend. If not, we hope you find a new friend that will make its way to your home for the next chapter in its history.

Martin and Melanie
We met several years ago, both of us the second time around so to speak, and began this business together to give unique vintage and antique items a second life.
Accepted payment methods
We ask that you make payment at the time of purchase. We will not ship an item until payment has been received and cleared. If payment is not received within 3 days, we will assume your order has been abandoned and the order will be cancelled and the item will be re-listed.
We will ship internationally, but we are not responsible for any customs charges or duty charges. Please be aware that the value of the item is put on the shipping label automatically, and we cannot say that it is a gift or change the value of the item.
It is the buyers responsibility to ensure a correct shipping address is placed on the order. If an item is returned due to an incorrect address, you must either pay the shipping fee again to have it shipped again or pay a 15% restocking fee and no shipping fees will be refunded.
We cannot be responsible for disputes within local postal organizations that result in delays.
Returns and exchanges

Please read through the Item description and make sure to view all the pictures provided for that item as these are part of the description. We try to describe each item to the best of our ability. If you have questions, please contact us by using the "contact shop owner" link on the page of the item.
"IF" a return is authorized, we will refund your purchase price (minus all shipping cost) within (5) days of receiving your return (items) back.
We will not refund if an incorrect shipping address is placed on the order and the item is not returned to us. If an item is returned due to an incorrect address, you must either pay the shipping fee again to have it shipped again or pay a 15% restocking fee and no shipping fees will be refunded.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you have questions or would like more pictures of an item, please let us know.
We try very hard to describe the items as accurately as possible and take good photos. We will always include measurements. Please check these before purchase.
Also, please keep in mind that vintage items are not always in perfect condition and we state their condition in each description.
Any errors made are unintentional with no thought to mislead or deceive. Please contact us with any questions and we'll be happy to answer! We'll also be happy to send additional photos if there is a different view that you want!
Please note that the colors shown in the photos may differ from the actual item. Color variations differ from computer to computer, please keep that in mind, as we will not refund for color discrepancies unless we make the mistake in the description.
FEEDBACK: We appreciate a positive feedback letting us know you've received and liked your items.
Thank you for your business and for visiting Second Wind Antiques!
To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order of jewelry, for example), if you contact me directly.
Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulflil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
Information Sharing and Disclosure
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.
If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:
Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
