Due to the fact that we sell one of a kind, unique, and rare items,

DESCRIPTION AND CONDITION OF YOUR ITEMS

Some of the items we are selling are very old and have had many years of use and abuse. Many are not in perfect condition. The items are all sold in an AS-IS condition and they are in the same condition as they were when we purchased them. Cleaning of some antiques like coins will harm the item and also decrease its value. We have tried to accurately describe each item and mention any flaws or defects it might have such as scratches, scuffs, chips, cracks, stains, discolorations, rust, tears or folds, or even slight wear marks on the items or on their boxes.We also include a picture with every item so that you can judge it for yourself.  

Please read the description very thoroughly before you purchase the item and if you do have any questions, please feel free to email me with them and I will reply, and I will do the best I can to answer them.

 

TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALES
All Sales are Final and items may only be returned if the condition has been misrepresented.

 

INSURANCE

 We have decided to insure all breakable and fragile items we sell. I am sure that the Postal Service and UPS try very hard, but things do get damaged in shipping now and then, and we want your item to arrive at your door undamaged and in good condition. Insurance is $1.70 per $50.00 of the item amount. We have the Postal Insurance Fees chart listed for you below.

MY STORY
I grew up an only child in a huge four story old house in a town in southern Minnesota. We had a library of over 3,000 books, the house was filled with beautiful old antique furniture, and my Mother collected English Transfer ware, Aqua and Cranberry Fenton Hobnail, Fostoria, Kings Crown, Cosmos Glass, and old Teddy Bears. She was a person who read constantly and always appreciated old lovely things with a history. She taught me to cherish them also. My mother and father went to a lot of auctions when I was growing up and I always went along. Soon I found out how much fun it was to collect something and look for a new treasure to add to my collection. I've always been an avid collector, from Horse Statues, Storybook Dolls, and Little Golden Books when I was very young, to Elvis Presley, Minnesota Twins Baseball, and Country Music Memorabilia when I was a teenager and young woman, to Kennedy and Clinton Political Memorabilia, Carousel Horses, Sandicast Dog Statues, Collector Plates, Old Fashioned Little Girl and Dog Pictures, Capitomonte Woven Baskets, Dolphins, Manatees, Polar Bears, Panda Bears, Loons, Snowy Owls, White Harp Seals, Penguins, Seahorses, and Noah's Ark Statues in my middle years and later years.    So now I have all of my Mother's collections to add to as well as my own.

I hope as you browse through the pages in My Old House of Antiques you will be able to find something you are looking for to add to your own collection or use as a gift for someone who means a lot to you. Have Fun Looking!
