About UsWelcome to Aunt Nellie's Parlor. I’m Larry Albrecht and I really did have an Aunt Nellie. She was my grandmother’s sister on my mother’s side and lived only four doors down the block from my family until I was about twelve years old. Her name seemed like a natural fit for us, so here we are. The “we” would be my wife, Karen, who also enjoys as much as I do, the auctions and estate sales where we find most of our goodies. Myself, I retired from Alcoa in May of 2007 after 30 years as an industrial electrician. It was shortly before that when we began selling on Ebay but were soon disillusioned, as so many have been. Around that time I noticed in my research, that Ruby Lane came up an awful lot and then some dealers mentioned it to me at various antique shows. So we looked into it further, and liked what we found, setting up shop as Aunt Nellies Parlor in May 2009. Most of our inventory is acquired from both live and online auctions as well as estate sales in the Eastern Iowa/Western Illinois area and surrounding states, allowing Aunt Nellies Parlor to offer a wide variety to choose from. We take a great deal of pride in our reputation, and while not experts by any stretch of the imagination, we will always make every attempt to accurately research and describe what we offer, not to mention making every effort to look for quality purchased at a price that allows us to pass on a “good buy” to our customers. From some of our customers; “…..packaged very carefully and arrived in excellent condition,” “Great service and speedy delivery,” “…..perfect condition, thanks for the great deal,” and this one, “….packing is the best I’ve ever seen.” By the way, you may receive your item in a previously used container, but it will always be clean, sturdy, and odor free, with your order very safely packed away for a safe and sound delivery. The used boxes, well, isn't that a little what this business is about, reusing, re-purposing, and continuing to enjoy items from our past and our history instead of stuffing the local landfill.
We know that our customers collections and gifts to their loved ones are important and we genuinely want everyone to be satisfied with and enjoy the items we offer. That's our reward. Thank you and happy shopping.
