Our warehouse is located in the Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco, CA (east of Potrero Hill). 

Dogpatch is a rapidly changing neighborhood on the Central Eastern port, not even mentioned on many neighborhood maps. It is a hidden gem full of historical industrial buildings, waterfront views, and charming restaurants and bars. While visiting be sure to check out Neighbor Bakehouse, The Ramp, Marcella's Lasagnaria, Piccino, Mission Rock Resort, or Mr. & Mrs. Miscellaneous.

You should also check out the art galleries at Minnesota Street Project.

You can read more about Dogpatch in this December 2016 New York Times article or this December 2017 7x7 article.

Shipping/Delivery, Condition Disclosure, Returns




We can deliver some of our smaller items in SF for free. For larger items we use a company that charges $90-120 in SF and the Bay Area.


We have several methods and services for shipping in the US and internationally, depending on the size of your item and your location. Some of the shippers we use are Plycon, Cruz Transport, AirSea, UPS, FedEx, and USPS.

Shipping costs are the buyer's responsibility and we require insurance on each piece. We try to make sure everything arrives well, but if for some reason an item arrives damaged please contact us within 24 hours. You can also contact the shipper directly, but we will work with you to resolve any shipping issues.  Be sure to keep all packaging material. You will need detailed photos of the item and packaging material if there is a problem to dispute. When using a blanket wrap service, such as Plycon, please inspect the item before signing off on the delivery.


If you need international shipping please contact us at to obtain a shipping quote. We need to know what item you are interested in, your address and what method you prefer (air vs. sea, to the port or door delivery.

Please note that the buyer is responsible for all international custom and duty fees.  They are in addition to, and not included in the cost of shipping. Our shippers here cannot tell us what the estimated custom and duty fees are, but a local customs broker in your country should be able to help you with that. If you need the contact info for a local broker in your country we will do our best to obtain it for you.


Our inventory is vintage which means it has been here for 40-80 years, thus some wear should be expected. Please note our condition categories:

Excellent: Almost perfect with maybe one or two small flaws such as a small scratch. Overall appearance is not affected.

Great: Shows some signs of wear. Superficial scratches, nicks, or marks are more visible than Excellent, but the piece looks great.

Good: Definite signs of age and wear. Piece may have visible scratches, nicks, or marks, but these flaws do not affect function.

If you have further questions about the condition please feel free to contact us. We strive to be as clear as possible in our descriptions and photos, so that you understand what condition the item is in. We research each piece to give you any and all information that we know about each item, but there is sometimes no brand or date on the piece. If there is we always put it in the description, otherwise we state the "style".

Please note that unless otherwise described, our lamps, clocks, and other electronics are in working order. However, since they are vintage, we do recommend that you have them checked by a technician if you so desire.


We do not offer returns because each piece is unique, and it is expected that vintage items have some wear. However, we do strive to be honest with our photos and descriptions of each piece. If you have questions about a particular item and its condition, please contact us before purchasing.  We are happy to explain to you any wear in detail or provide additional photos.
