The Big Mystery Box

The Big Mystery Box

So here's the thing: We are really good pickers.


The art and passion of finding vintage treasures is at the core of this business. Interests vary, and can range from ridiculous and weird to luxurious and decadent. Saving and restoring pieces brings us such joy, and seeing them going off to their new homes is just the best feeling!


Having said that, it's the photographing, editing, writing the verbiage is just an absolute drag and is a time vampire.


Soooooo...Let's do a mystery box! For your box you will get the choice of a drop down that will highlight what you're most interested in seeing in your hand selected treasure chest but that's it. The rest is a mystery!


The Big Mystery Box is a deep dive into fabulous vintage finds!!

Screw it - pick for me!: Dealer's choice, baby!! You'll get a delightful assortment of je-ne-sais-quoi! Feeling brave?!?


It may be one item with the box' value or it may be some smalls creating the box' value. Either way, it will have been selected for you from a place of love, carefully packed and shipped Priority Mail!


The joy is in the mystery - no hints will be given, and no requests will be honored, but fun WILL be had!!!

  • Mystery Box Rules and Regs

    Mystery boxes are just that.  Your box contenets have been chosen from carefully curated objects that have come in to the Villa and have yet to be photographed or shown off in any way. We're talking super duper secret finds!

    With every awesome thing, there has to be some "But". The "but" here is there are no returns. Period, end of story.  No take backs, no do-overs, nothing.

    If something is not to your taste, tuck it aside and give it as the perfect gift to the person who has everything!
