Affordable Treasures Await You!
About Minted Vintage
Our Service PledgeWe aim to please and will strive to respond to all orders within 24 hours. Our items are as stated and we offer you honest, detailed descriptions so you can buy with confidence. I am a fussy seller and if there is a flaw on an item, I will note it for your information. In the rare event I overlook an imperfection, I will do my best to make it right with you. We do tag or sometimes invisibly mark our offerings, so in the unlikely event you want to make a return it must be the same item as sent, in same condition with tags and/or marks intact. However, we know that you'll be happy with your purchase from us!
About UsMy shop is dedicated to the memory of my mother Ruby and her sister...my Aunt Mae. Without their patience in teaching me about the world of antiques and collectibles "Minted Vintage" would never have happened.
After attending many sales, auctions and the like, I knew in my heart what my life's work was to be. I was hooked way back at the age of 15 and still am...all these years later I'm still buying at auctions, estates, house sales, thrift shops or anywhere there may be something I will be able to offer you, my dear customers and friends, to turn into your own cherished treasure.
Each time one of you passes through my shop just to visit or make a purchase, it brings back memories of long ago and the love I have for this business. From the many travels my aunt, my mom and I have made over the years, I hope your eyes will sparkle when you spot that special bargain too!
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile and for your patronage. I appreciate it more than words can say. And one last thing. Please know that every piece selected to be in my shop has been placed here with much thought, love and lots of care...all just for you.

Hi Linda: Just wanted to say my vintage "Good Medicine" copper
bracelet arrived on Sat. Placed it on my right wrist - right out
of the box - felt natural - felt like it was meant for "me"!
Thanks for being the hunter - Alaska is rich in many ways, yet
sparse in such treasures of this kinda "old". Plan to keep in
touch. I knew from our brief conversation - We are kindred.
Take good care, Pamela
