About Rare Finds

Our Service Pledge
I guarantee that all of my items are authentic and have been described to the best of my knowledge.

You can check my feedback on eBay under 1mara to see that the customer always comes first in my business.
About Us
I have bought antiques and collectables all my life and have been selling them for 30 years. I started in the business so that I could find some room in my attic. Now my friends are cleaning their attics and bringing me treasures that I will be passing on to you.

What my customers say about their purchases:

I am absolutely thrilled with the latest additions to my pixie
collection, including the little guy that showed up as a
surprise. How very kind of you. Thank you so much for your
outstanding customer service and a wonderful buying experience.
You are a rare gem. Angela

I wanted to tell you when I got the chance... I absolutely LOVE my Cameo Florals plates! They look gorgeous displayed on my kitchen plate rack. I have been searching for about a half dozen of this particular pattern for a while now, so it was wonderful to find them in your shop...then to have such wonderful service was a real treat. Thanks so much for such a great buying experience, Dawn

Wonderful earrings received: what speed. Your wrapping was excellent....the best possible. Love these earrings--better than I hoped for. Thank you, Diana

My order arrived yesterday and I am thrilled with both items. The little demitasse cup is more beautiful than in the picture and I can't stop looking at it. The Santa and wife salt and pepper shakers are wonderful and in great condition. They will not have to "work" as shakers because they'll be decorations. Thanks again for your great service - I LOVE everything. Ruth


NO QUESTION. JUST THE ONLY WAY I KNOW TO LEAVE POSITIVE FEEDBACK;...."FOR GREAT SERVICE ALONG WITH UNDER STANDING. I GIVE THIS PERSON 3-THUMBS UP"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Byron from SC

The package arrived yesterday in perfect condition. I cannot tell you how pleased I am with the plate--it is absolutely gorgeous. Dealing with you has been a pleasure and I thank you for keeping me posted and for letting me in on the updated history of the plate. W.M. from VA
