* A child illustrated on this drum is dressed up as a Cowboy attempting to lasso a fellow child who is dressed in Native American attire. We acknowledge this as a harmful depiction that sterotypes Native Americans and glorifes the abuse that was inflicted upon them by white settlers in North America. We have chosen to still exhibit and sell this item as a testament to where Western culture has come from, and to encourage honest conversation and learning around our shared history on Turtle Island. We do not want to erase the suffering of Native Americans and Canadians, but instead acknowledge our shared responsbility now to move towards reconciliation.

Each piece in the Vintage by Advice from a Caterpillar collection is sold in its current condition. There may be signs of prior use or wear that is natural with any antique; this is part of its beauty and soul. We therefore do not accept price negotiations as we have priced each item as fairly as we can, taking into account its condition and legacy.
