All vintage items we sell have been used and are 20-100 years old, which means their condition will reflect their age. Expect imperfections with these items. We believe these imperfections add character to the pieces and offer a glimpse into their long histories. We do our best to describe any issues. Please feel free to ask questions before buying, as all sales are final.


Product availability on our website is not guaranteed, as these products are also in our brick-and-mortar store. We try our best to keep our online inventory up-to-date.
