Welcome to The Thrift Treasury

I have a selection of vintage and gently used dinnerware, tableware, china, porcelain, pottery, books & magazines and other items that strike my fancy.


Payment is due within three (3) business days after the end of the auction or BIN purchase. If payment is not received within that time, the item will be relisted for sale and negative feedback maybe left.


I will ship the best way and most economical. Usually that means USPS Priority Mail within the US. Larger items can ship either UPS or Fedex Ground. All packages will be insured and tracked. Packages will ship 1 to 3 business days after payment is received and cleared.

All my listings reflect estimated shipping within the US - I will confirm shipping fee after I have a ship-to address - Buyer pays all shipping expenses. I am willing to ship international but I am not responsible for the extra fees associated with such shipments - Buyer pays all shipping expenses. Please contact me for a shipping quote prior to purchase or bid. I do not ship worldwide - please check to see if your area is serviced.

I do charge a handling fee to help cover cost of shipping supplies. Depending upon the size of the item, the fee will range between $1.00 and $4.00. The handling fee will be noted in the listing, as will any oversized items.

Books: I will ship Priority Mail in the US (insured and tracking). I can ship First Class or Media Mail upon request without insurance. But I am not responsible if the package is lost or damaged and shipped uninsured upon request.

I am happy to combine shipping - please ask.


Arizona residents pay sales taxes. All duties, tariffs, import fees and taxes are the responsibility of the buyer.


Items are guaranteed as described. All items are used, so assume normal, minor use marks and wear unless otherwise noted. If you are unhappy with the item(s), I must be contacted within three (3) days of receipt of the package(s). Items may be returned only with approval. I do not reimburse for return shipping.
