Vintage Vera is a Mobile Pop-Up Shop selling Vintage/Retro/Boho Clothing & Home Goods out of a 1961 Glendale Glendette Vintage Glamper

Vintage Vera is a Mobile Pop-Up Shop selling Vintage Home Goods & Vintage/Retro & Bohemian Fashions & Accessories out of a 1961 Glendale Vintage Camper NOW turned Glamper! Vera was my grandmother, VINTAGE VERA got her name in my Nana's honor. We were very close even though she lived 4 hours away, I was lucky enough to have her for 36 years. She actually passed away on my birthday. I owe my LOVE (or obsession) of thrift store shopping, garage & estate sales and auctions all to her. Some of my fondest memories are of Saturday mornings adventures with her. She gave me my first beaded vintage hand bag and the rest is history. I love Vintage finds and the hunt for the unexpected and unique :) I also LOVE old vintage camper trailers that have been restored or made into something exciting and new again. And I love Glamping (Glamorous Camping), Vintage Vera is a combination and dream of some of my favorite things and hobbies. You can also Follow Vintage Vera on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter!

No exchanges or returns. ALL SALES ARE FINAL.

Colour in pictures may slightly vary. Every computer screen is different and I can not be sure what the colour of a particular garment looks like on your specific monitor. Please pay careful attention to the way that the colours of the garment are described.

However, I make every effort to describe and showcase items as they are. Any defects or damage will be noted after description of each item.

Items are not washed/dry cleaned unless stated in listing.

I am a reasonable lady and if there are any concerns once you receive your parcel please do contract me. If you are not happy with your purchase or feel you have had a less than positive experience please contact us before you leave a review so we have an opportunity to provide you with a 5 star experience.
All transactions are listed in Canadian Dollars (CND).

I accept PayPal. PayPal accepts all major credit cards and does not require you to have an account with them.

Please do not reserve an item if you are not 100% sure you will purchase it.

Vintage Vera Glam also has the right to refuse a reserve request.

Additional policies and FAQs

1. I am in Georgian Triangle Area of Ontario can I try the garment on in person, pick it up, have you drop it off?

You may ONLY try items on if I am currently in a Pop-Up Shop Location or by Appointment at my Home Shop Location. Please follow me on Facebook and twitter to see if a Pop-Up Shop location is available at the time you are shopping. I do not offer pick ups or drop offs.

2. Can I see different pictures of this garment? This garment on another model, at a different angle, etc...?

Sorry, the photos I provide are the only photos I have or will have, sometimes additional photo's are available from other angles, but never on a model.

3. Why is the shipping so expensive? Can I get cheaper/free shipping.

Sorry, Canadian shipping is very expensive. If the shipping of your item is considerably less then the estimated cost I will refund the difference, but only if the difference is considerably less, and I will make the final decision in this regard.

In order to be protected by Etsy and Paypal I only ship using levels that include tracking and full insurance coverage for all orders in Canada.

I will not ship without tracking or insurance.

Please feel free to visit Canada Post and cross check my shipping prices.

My postal code is L9Z 1Y9

I can not give free shipping because Canada Post doesn't give me free shipping.

4. What size is this garment? What size does the tag say? Would this fit me?

I provide detailed measurements on all my listings.

For the most part vintage sizes (tags) do not show up on garments until the 70s and they do not correlate with modern sizes.

Modern sizes are not uniform or universal as they vary greatly between different brands and designers.

Your best bet it to take your measurements and compare them to the detailed measurements provided in each listing.

I use inches but if you use centimeters there are a lot of quick, easy, free online inch to centimeter conversion calculators readily available.

5. I need this fast can you ship sooner? Can you ship overnight? Can I get it by the weekend?

I try and process and dispatch all orders in 3-5 business days if no alternate arrangement has been agreed upon.

If you need it sooner and circumstances permit I can ship sooner.

If you need a rush order please contact me prior to purchase and I will let you know if I can facilitate it and what the additional cost will be.

6. Can I get this cheaper?

A few times throughout the year we have a sales event.

Outside of those sales events our prices are firm.

Follow me on facebook and twitter to be the first to know when these sales are scheduled and for deeper discounts offered only to our fans.

7. What fabric is this?

If the garment pre-dates the 70s it is very unlikely to have a fabric content tag.

I give my best guess but I do not and will not conduct burn tests for insurance purposes so I can not always definitively say what the fabrication is.

I will always try and indicate if it is a synthetic or a natural fibre base.

8. Where do you find your inventory?

That's my little secret ;)

9. If I buy 5 or more (10 or more, etc...) can I get wholesale pricing?

Sorry, I do not offer wholesale and I prefer not to process orders with over 5 units.

10. Can I get this dress in a different size, colour, length etc...?

Sorry, I sell authentic 20 year or older vintage found, previously owned and previously loved garments.

I do not make them.

The odds of finding two identical garments, though not impossible, are highly unlikely.

I sell unaltered, authentic to found form, vintage.

I do not provide alterations or modifications.

11. Can I cancel my order?

Sorry but you can't. I try to move as quick as I can around here and sometimes orders get shipped out within hours of receiving them. Even orders that do not show as shipped yet have already begun to be processed. Often tracking can take anywhere from a few hours to a few days to scan into the postal system. Once an order is made you agree to our policies. I have a no cancellation policy.

12. I want to keep this garment BUT I found: a spec, a dot, a hang thread, discoloration on the lining, a pin-sized fray, a missing bead, a missing sequin etc... I want a partial refund of 5%, 50%, 210% can you please issue the partial refund now?

No PARTIAL REFUNDS on any item purchased from Vintage Vera Glam.

Ships in Canada ONLY at this time from Wasaga Beach, Ontario, Canada unless otherwise arranged.
