    Please note: the most attractive quality of a vintage item is its past. With this understanding, I hope that you will enjoy the character and story of the treasure you have chosen. I sell items that attract my attention and strive for fair and reasonable prices. I also try to describe and photograph objects thoroughly and honestly. Antiques and vintage items show signs of age such as ice skates, crazy people, paint, chips, scratches and cracks. So please use the zoom function to review the photos, read the descriptions and request before reviewing so that you are most satisfied with your purchase.

    Shipping: All packages are sent from Germany. I would love to send your love to you wherever you are and I would prefer to combine transportation with two or more items. I believe in greening, so I use recycled materials whenever possible. I will finish your purchase with a lot of love to ensure that it reaches the condition described.

    Vintage items show natural signs of wear due to their use and age.
