About

I love fashion and I loveLOVElove vintage. I have collected vintage evening bags since I was young, and I love scouring the thrift stores! I've learned that I have a great eye for forgotten, yet valuable, things, and I don't want to leave them sitting in Goodwill collecting dust, but I can't wear all of it...so I thought I should share my finds with other appreciating people :-)

I'm still pretty new to selling things online, but I am researching all the items that I will list, so that if there is a story or an extra test of authenticity, I will make sure to note it!

****A NOTE ON THE NEGATIVE FEEDBACK FROM BUYER CAROL VAUGHN/VAUGHN229****
This person purchased two 50+ year old purses, one of which is an original Bonnie Cashin for Coach from the mid sixties. Because of the value of the purses, I added a tracking #, insurance, and delivery confirmation...TEN days AFTER the purses were delivered, she filed a Paypal dispute saying that one is damaged and the other has a smudge. Both items were clearly depicted and Etsy has a zoom function for pictures, and neither was damaged when I shipped them...so I believe that she had used the purses and decided to get her money back after she took them out for a joyride. I take great pride in my vintage purse collection and I would never knowingly ship an item that is different than described or depicted. Besides, if there was a problem when you receive an order, wouldn't you report it IMMEDIATELY, not 10 days later??? Yeah, me too. So anyway. she demanded her money back through Paypal, and didn't contact me for 2 more weeks, even though I had politely and firmly responded. After 2 more weeks she escalated the Paypal dispute to a claim, and another week later Paypal mistakenly awarded her a return, with instructions to provide tracking info ASAP to ship back the purses. At that point, she's had these purses for more than a month! So let's fast forward to today, 11-18-11...she had the purses for a month and a half, has been granted a return, and waited an entire week before bothering to ship them back! How much ya wanna bet that she was still wearing that lovely camel-colored Coach bag on her way to the post office? When these purses finally found their way back to me, they are not in the same condition as when I mailed them. One purse is now irrepairably damaged, and the Coach purse is marked and thus de-valued. On top of that, she took no care with these precious items and shoved them in a small box with no proper packaging or protection.

Because of this incident, I have little faith in Paypal's "seller protection" as well.

****If you have plans of buying merchandise, using it, and returning it...go to Walmart.**** Don't do it with vintage items or entrepreneurs. That's not ok in any market, even Walmart for that matter.
