There are a lot of factors that go into pricing – for one we decided to include shipping in the price and so weight and size of package and our experience shipping (I also own a Made in USA sleepwear business!) help inform that, of course I also will often research vintage costs locally and online with other sellers, take into consideration the quality of the piece whether its rare or hard to find, whether its in mint condition or has damage, whether its a complete set all factor into my pricing.

I’ve tried to include relevant measurements and condition notes in each product description but if something is missing or you have a question about size/weight of an item feel free to send me a message!

Ultimately you’ll have to decide what you are willing to pay for a product and convenience of having something delivered to your door but my personal rule of thumb for choosing vintage is “what would I pay for this if it were a new item?” and then if its the same or less I consider that vintage items are often harder to find in good condition and not many others will have them so it makes an even bigger impact for me when decorating because it’s not off the shelf and is more unique and that value is part of the price.

Patina usually refers to the oxidization (what happens when certain metals are exposed to moist air/humidity) of metal – on copper its blue/green/white, on brass and silver its brown/black. And sometimes it can describe the softened edges of wood or oil stains on wicker that come with frequent use/wear.

I personally love the wear/patina of vintage items, whether its brass or a basket it just feels more relaxed and adds instant warmth to a space.

Great question! I like to keep things as sustainable as possible so I try to reuse boxes and packing material as much as possible. If I don’t have the appropriate materials to protect an item in shipping I will go ahead and purchase new. When purchasing new I’ll opt for products made of recycled material. If included, the handmade flower paper thank you is plantable!
