Item Conditions

Last updated: May 9, 2020

At Back Porch Gatherings, we have always loved vintage and antique items!  Many items were hand made 100-200 years ago, by a single craftsman or in small workshops by only a few workers during a time when things were not mass-produced.  We purchase our inventory knowing it’s not perfect.  We think that’s what makes it beautiful!  The knowledge that the piece was used and loved by a family for many years, and is so well built that it has been passed down to another generation.  We think that’s what makes it worthy of selling it to another family and the reason we do this every day.  We hope you, too, understand those imperfections.  We will be sure to point out any of these issues to serious buyers at the time of inquiry.  Thank you for loving old as much as we do!
