Vintage Treasures at Vickie's Vintage Home!
Welcome to Vickie's Vintage Home!! Rescuing Once-Loved Treasures!
I've always been a collector of "other people's junk" and have many treasures that may have eventually ended up in a land fill.
I found Etsy's Vintage side in 2008 and since then it has become my mission in life to "rescue" the "unwanted" and find great homes for them with people who will once again treasure them!
I research the items I list to give you as much information as I can about them. There are a few pieces listed that I can't find any information on and I mention that in my listing. If you find an item in my shop that you KNOW is not vintage (at least 20 years old), please send me a note with the information you have about it and I will remove it.
Some of the items in my shop are over 50+ years old and therefore, probably are not in working (like-new) condition. If I tested it and it works, I will say so in the listing.
Also because of the age of my items - none of them are NEW. There will be flaws from years of use - but I try to point out everything that I know is wrong. Sometimes things get overlooked - please forgive me for that.
Except for dust, dirt or surface rust I do not attempt to clean the items in my shop. I prefer to leave them as I found them, leaving the vintage / antique patina and aging on the pieces I sell.
If you have any problems with one of my purchased items, please email and we can work together to find a solution.
Thanks for looking around my shop and please come back often!
I have three shops on Etsy...click on the website links below to see all three.

I do not try to restore any of the items I list. I prefer to leave that to you or other experts who have the knowledge to do that correctly. Other than washing dirty dishes and wiping items off, I do not attempt to remove rust (other than surface rust) or patina from any item. I don't try to restore any of my wood items. Basically, the way I find them and list them is the way you will receive them. Personally, I love the "old weathered" look of antique and vintage items. I hope you do too.
Accepted payment methods
I also accept all payment methods through Etsy's Payment System.
Note: PayPal also accepts checks through your bank account - this generally takes 4-7 days to clear.
NOTE: I always refund any excessive shipping fees AND I always combine shipping for same-day multiple purchases. Thank You!
INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: Unfortunately because of the high rate of lost and/or damaged items to certain countries I only ship Internationally if it is requested. I will only ship Internationally by Priority or 1st Class International with insurance. Insurance is automatically included with Internatiomal Priority and will be added to the shipping fee I quote to you for 1st Class International. Also - all fees invoked by your country on purchases you make are solely your responsibility - taxes, tariffs, custom fees etc.
Returns and exchanges
- Custom or personalized orders
- Perishable products (like food or flowers)

If you are not happy with your purchase please contact me to discuss the problem you are having. If we both agree to my return policies, I will gladly give you a refund when I receive the item back. It must be in the same condition as when I sent it out to you. There will also be a 25% restocking fee to cover selling fees and packing supplies.
Returns must be received within 7 days of the customer receiving the item.
Sorry, but return postage will not be refunded.

Many of my shop items include paper related items that can not be washed. I try not to stock items that are extremely musty, but old paper sometimes has its own special scent. I have a non-smoking home, however, some items I sell may have come from homes or businesses where they smoked - I try my best to not purchase items that can not be aired out enough to eliminate any offensive scents. I will state in the listing description if this may be an issue.
If you have any questions or concerns about an item - PLEASE ask before you purchase.
I'm sorry, but Vickie's Vintage Home doesn't do reserve listings.
