Returns and exchange details
All sales are FINAL, unless I have badly misrepresented an item.

The exception to this is sales to buyers located in the EU. Since I am based in Germany, I must follow the EU's Distance Selling Regulations, which give a buyer 14 days from the time they receive the item, to return it. These rules also stipulate that the buyer's original shipping cost must be refunded. The cost of return shipping will not be refunded in most cases.

Shipping cost for items returned to me as Unclaimed or Undeliverable will NOT be refunded.

Please check the listed measurements very carefully and ask questions if you are not sure if an item will fit you or not, if the color is what you expect, about condition, or anything else, I am happy to answer as soon as I can.

Please let me know if it appears I have made a mistake in the listing or description. In case of misdescribed, damaged or missing items, I will work with you to find a solution.

If your package is shown on tracking as "delivered" and you have not received it, please contact me ASAP. I will give you the info needed to research your package. Most postal systems take mail theft very seriously!

Shipping policies

SHIPPING METHODS AND LOCATIONS
Worldwide (with some exceptions), from Hannover Germany. Most items ship via Deutsche Post Economy Air, with signature required.

Requiring the signature is a part of the German postal tracking system so although it might be inconvenient, it enables us to track your package and protects against lost or stolen items.

Heavier or higher-value items may be shipped via DHL.

Express shipping options are available, please contact me BEFORE purchasing if you need this.

Please expect longer shipping times to the US / countries outside the EU during peak times such as Christmas. During the holidays it can take more than a month for a package to reach the West Coast of the US.

ORDER PROCESSING TIME
Orders will be shipped as soon as possible, within 3 business days of purchase unless otherwise stated (if I am out of town on a buying trip, for example).

BUYERS OUTSIDE THE EU
You are responsible for paying any customs-related duties or taxes related to your package. I cannot misrepresent customs forms as "gifts" or anything else, as this is illegal. Please be aware of the rules, regulations and fees for your country, as I am unable to accept returns due to high customs duties and fees.

SHIPPING ADDRESS
PLEASE make sure your PayPal / Etsy shipping address is correct. I am not responsible for packages shipped to an incorrect address due to buyer error.

It is they buyer's responsibility to make sure Etsy has the current and correct address on file.

REFUND OF EXCESS SHIPPING CHARGES
It can be hard to estimate shipping charges for multiple items, due to the cutoff weights for the various shipping options. If you have overpaid by more than a dollar or two, I will refund the excess via your original payment method.

Please be aware that sometimes shipping costs more the amount shown on the sticker on your package when it arrives (it does not include extra money I might have paid for insurance or other options, for example).

Additional policies

Vintage clothing is gorgeous, wonderful, interesting and fabulous. It is also, well, VINTAGE, meaning at least 20 years old. I will do my best to describe any flaws I see, but please do not expect these items to be comparable to something you buy brand new in H&M or Hollister.

SIZING AND MEASUREMENTS
Please keep in mind that sizes on vintage items run much smaller than today's sizes - so a vintage size 14 is much smaller than a modern 14.

I measure all clothing using these measurements, with a slight bit of 'ease' included:

Bust: From armpit to armpit x2
Waist: From smallest point x2
Hips: From widest point x2
Sleeve: From shoulder seam to end
Shoulder: From seam to seam across back

Please measure an item in your wardrobe that fits you well, and compare with the listed measurements of an item if you are not sure it will fit.

ITEM CONDITION
Most items are sold as I found them. I prefer to leave any washing or dry-cleaning up to the discretion of the new owner. Any information about dirt, damage, odor, etc. will be in the item's listing but please ask if anything is unclear.

SATISFACTION
I am happy to provide additional descriptions, measurements or even extra photos of any of my items, and to answer any questions you may have. I really want you to be happy with your purchase, and to love and appreciate these things as much as I do. Thanks!
