Vintage Collectibles Filling Your Heart With a Melody of Memories!


About SingPraise

Our Service Pledge
I will email you shipping and insurance costs within 24 hours of being informed of a purchase. Items are mailed within 3 business days of receipt of payment. Items will be packed in most secure fashion possible! Communication with my buyers is important to me! I will inform buyers of the status of their purchase every step of the way; when I am notified of their order, when I receive their payment, and when the item is shipped. I encourage my buyers to do the same for any concerns no matter how small!!
About Us
I absolutely LOVE antiques and vintage collectibles. I grew up in a small and lovely village in the Pocono Mountains when life was a little slower and a little sweeter! Visions of the general store, the soda fountain (which we owned: Remember Lefty's?), DePue's Bar and Grill, the Old Mill, and the red brick schoolhouse take only a breath to recall. Items from that time are close to my heart even when I sell them!

Here, you'll see treasures I received from my parents and grandparents that I've been familiar with all my life. (Oh, don't worry, I've kept a lot for myself). I also have a variety of other vintage and ethnic items from trips to Europe and the Middle East. And don't forget to look at my vintage jewelry and vintage Barbie Doll collectibles!!

I have certification in antiques and collectibles appraising from the ASHEFORD INSTITUTE OF ANTIQUES. The course was so informative and has given me a lot of tools that aid in researching antiques and collectibles, their origins and values - so time consuming, but as much interesting! Of course, there is always more to learn about antiques!! But as I acquire more knowledge, it enables me to give you, the customer, the best and most complete information that I can find. I do try hard to provide the necessary details, so rest assured. However, if you see an item in my shop you would like more info on than provided, I'm happy do further research. It may take a while as some info is not readily available, but I will do it for you. I hope to begin dealing a broader range of vintage and antique items as I grow in my endeavor.

I try to glorify God in all that I do, so I offer you my best and am always willing to work out any concerns to my customers' total satisfaction.



HAPPY CUSTOMERS SING PRAISE!

Hello Melissa,
I received my doll yesterday afternoon. She is perfect! I am very pleased. I have wanted this doll for a long time. She will have a great spot in my collection. I was a ballerina for 19 years, it is nice to have a Barbie that represents that. Thank you also for understanding the signature request and not adding it, also, she was packed great. Thanks for the care you took. I just found Ruby Lane. It is an interesting site, very easy to use. Thank you again for taking such care with this Barbie. I am very happy to have her. Hopefully we can do business again in future. I am not aware if you can do feedback or reviews on Ruby Lane like on ebay. I will check and give you a great review if there is one. Take Care......K

Hi Melissa,
Just a courtesy call to let you know the lovely Barrettes have arrived and I am absolutely thrilled with them. I have quite a collection now, something like 45 I think; I have just started mounting them all on card. It brings back many happy memories: When I was a child in the 50sI used to go to our Village Shop on Saturday afternoons and spend my pocket money on either this type of hair slides or Paper Doll Books.

It has been a real pleasure doing business with you and I look forward to doing so again soon. Kindest Regards........S

Hi, Melissa!

Merry Christmas!....K

Melissa:
Just wanted to let you know that I received the L/N brooch. It's beautiful. I'm also very impressed with your packaging. It made the transaction very special...J.

Hi Melissa,
I received your beautifully wrapped parcel this afternoon. Unfortunately, the delicate thread holding the necklace came loose during the commute Being very old and dry, it simply gave way..........

Melissa, My friend was able to restring the necklace with thread coated with nylon so that it's strong and will last a long time. Years ago, jewelers used simple cotton or silk thread......

Since you were so responsive and completely willing to help me resolve this matter, I was impressed. There are sellers out there who would not have been so responsive. If you ever come across any more beautiful necklaces like this one, please contact me. I would appreciate that very much.
Best regards......J

Hi Melissa,

Thanks, Melissa.

Melissa,
Not a question but a thank you. The necklace arrived (a few days ago) and it's really good looking. I LOVED the packaging!!!
Regards......G

Hi, Melissa.
Just wanted you to know that Kokeshi doll arrived on Friday in excellent condition. She is so unique and so beautiful! More amazing than this little lady herself was the fact that despite her top-heavy appearance, she stands very well without assistance. Kiyoshi (my name for her) makes a lovely addition to my collection. I hope you were planning to send the adorable little beanie baby elephant in the box with the doll. In fact, I missed him, but my boyfriend found him and got him out. If he is an unwanted stowaway, let me know and I'll send him back to you. Otherwise, he will make the perfect Christmas present for my boyfriend's niece, He's a cute little guy and will make her happy, as she LOVES stuffed animals.

Once again, the doll is magnificent. Like you, I enjoyed the crossing of our paths and hope they do again sometime soon. Thank you very much....C

Melissa,
Thank you so very much for the quick shipment of the doll. It arrived in excellent condition Saturday Morning. And the added Beanie Baby is really nice. Thanks Again!......J

Hi Melissa,
I picked the ring up from the PO on Thursday, and it is absolutely gorgeous. Even more beautiful than I had imagined. Thanks you so much for sharing all about your grandmother who previously owned the ring. I was struck by the strong political views held by her as described in the article. Your grandmother seemed to be a remarkable woman who was not afraid to stand up for her beliefs - even if they were not the popular ones of the day. I will cherish the ring....D
