About Rescued Rarities

Our Service Pledge
I guarantee the Authenticity of all of my Bakelite items - and will provide pictures of testing, etc. Additionally I take every measure to ensure that my vintage purses are as accurate as possible for "era" and designer. I never, ever want to mislead you in my descriptions - and will always be honest and offer whatever information I have available. I welcome communication and questions -please feel free to contact me anytime! I will do everything I can to get you the answers. I am avid collector - I am not a professional appraiser, nor can I offer exact values or manufacturing details - unless otherwise provided. I take pride in all of my pieces; they are a reflection of myself and my shop. I want you to enjoy and love your "rescued rarity" - I will always strive to offer the best customer service to ensure you a pleasant and positive experience.
About Us
Hi! My name is Katie and I'm so grateful for you visiting my shop! Rescued Rarities was born out of my passion for "the past." All my life, I have been fascinated with history - everything we do, and are, and will become has been shaped by our "before." I also love fashion, jewelry, and finding the beauty in pieces often forgotten, hidden away, or passed down and then passed over.

I started Rescued Rarities as a way to share, and bring back, an appreciation for the "vintage" that is in all of us.

I hope you enjoy my shop and might find something that is meaningful to you too. I have collected all my life - and every piece, purse, and item featured has been hand-selected by me. I am always available, and happy, to answer questions - and provide what story I know or have on each piece.

Again - thank you! I appreciate you.
