🍬✳ This beautiful blue and violet silk 1950's dress is simply perfect for a date, or simply a walk to get ice cream. Dress is priced accordingly as she's a little as-found. The inner neckline is a little discolored and so are a couple of the fabric-covered buttons. Original belt is missing. Dress has all it's original buttons and the metal zip works just fine! She would probably benefit from a trip to the dry cleaner. ✳🍬 No tag, dress may be hand-made. All measurements taken flat and approximate!

    Bought and paid for on January 23rd. Weeks later on February 10th USPS tracking says a label was created and they were waiting for the sender to drop it off; it finally tracked in USPS possession on February 12th. While I'm sure things sometimes come up that would necessitate a very late shipment, there's no excuse for failing to explain or apologize or even communicate the excessively late shipment in any way.

Paypal Visa Mastercard American Express Discover Apple Pay Giftcard
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
I only accept Paypal and Debit Cards at this time. ABSOLUTELY NO ECHECKS due to delays with them in the past. Items will be shipped AFTER payment clears.
Payment is expected in full at the time of purchase, I do not offer layaway. All my items are priced fairly for what they are and the condition they are in; remember these things are older than you and can have some wear, stretch, etc. but they are still mostly 30 to 100 years old and not easy to find so please don't lowball me. If you can't afford an item then you don't need it (I've personally had to pass on so many treasures in my life because it was out of my means, it happens).
I rarely do holds and never for longer than 24 hours. I'm more likely to hold higher priced items for people because pay day is a day away, but cheap items not so much.
Please think before cancelling your order because it costs me to relist things. If it's already in the mail I absolutely will not cancel it.

Returns & exchanges

No refunds. I will only do store credit in extreme cases i.e. you can't even put the item on your body. In these cases store credit will only be given once the item has been returned to me in the same condition (no weird smells, animal hair, stains, rips, burns, wrinkles, anything that wasnt there before) and at the buyer's expense. So please ask all your questions about fit, etc. before purchasing.
HOWEVER, if an issue does arise please contact me via message before opening a case because I don't want unhappy customers. But being a bully doesn't get instant refunds. I will not put up with feedback extortion, threatening or harassing behavior or foul language. Abusive individuals will be reported to Etsy admin.
Customers have 1 week from receiving the item to contact me with concerns or problems so inspect it upon receiving. I try to list any weird minutiae about the item if it's something that would offput me and I am PICKY!
Again, I DO NOT issue refunds so bear that in mind when purchasing something from my shop.

Shipping policies

Items are shipped within 3-5 business days unless otherwise noted. If there are overages in what was paid for an item to be shipped versus what was paid to actually send it, shipping costs are calculated for weight, size, cost of packaging materials and transportation of the item to the post office because it IS NOT close to my headquarters by any means. I do not gouge on shipping, sometimes it can be a dollar more than I pay to send it, more often than not I underestimate and lose money on shipping.
If you need an item rushed or insurance, etc., please notify me by message before purchasing. Once an item has been mailed I will provide you with the tracking number but after it leaves my hands it is in those of the United States Postal Service and I am not responsible for an item being held up or lost in the mail. Feel free to send me a message if there is an issue so we can get to the bottom of this together but I can not be held accountable for your mail carriers actions, talk to their boss.

Additional policies

Please do not message me with offers below my asking price. Everything is priced fairly for what it is and has been fact checked and cross checked and decided on generally by fair market price. I frequently have sales so if something is currently beyond your means keep checking back! But asking half the price for a one of a kind piece is demeaning to my work and the item's value.
I do not hold items for longer than 24 hours. I try to provide measurments in the listing even if they're as simple as the size listed on an items tag. Feel free to ask questions but don't waste our time if you do not plan to make a purchase.
