About

Treasure Found!

I love the hunt, finding a gem in a pile of junk makes my day. I for some reason have always had a knack for finding things, this combined with my love of fashion lead me to open ABirdOfParadise. I was bordering on hoarder status with my treasure collecting, when I decided to open up shop and offer my wears to the people of the world. Lucky you!

The response has been wonderful, I am thrilled to find beautiful things and then find them new homes, it feels like an adoption agency. I am sometimes sad to see certain things go, but at the same time I am excited that it will have new adventures.

Communication is key to Customer service. I have a lot of information for you that should help us to be on the same page. When in doubt ask in a convo.

All items are from a pet/smoke free home.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
Payment
Paypal payments and money orders are the forms of payment that I accept. Payment must be received within 4-7 days of purchase , please send money orders directly after purchasing and send a convo informing me that you have done this.

If you need to cancel an order, please do so within 24 hours.
Shipping
I ship USPS priority mail with tracking on most orders in the United States. Out of the United States I do not provide tracking because of the high cost. If you are outside of the USA and want tracking please contact me and I will find out what the additional cost is and provide you with that service.

Please contact me if you would like expedited shipping, in that case I will adjust the shipping price. Let me know if you prefer Priority or Express. Also if you would like insurance, you should let me know that as well.

Larger items being shipped inside USA maybe first class if it is more cost effective, those items will receive tracking.

I do ship internationally, once payment is received. International shipping is USPS first class and the buyer is responsible for all customs charges on their end. I can quote international prices for you if you want, but I have no way of telling customs charges as they are country specific through your postal service. Also let me know if you would like Priority or Express and insurance.

I am not responsible for shipping damages or product which is lost in transit. Please ask for insurance if this is something that you want.
Refunds and Exchanges
I will accept returns on CLOTHING & SHOES ONLY with in 7 days of shipping, so you will have 1-3 days to decide if you like it.

If we cannot work anything out I will return you money minus shipping costs. All of this will be communicated during the transaction.

Vintage clothing and accessories can be more fragile than modern clothing, so please keep that in mind when ordering. Many of my items are one of a kind and can not be replaced with substitute items.

I do not cover damage and losses in transit, so if you're concerned please add shipping insurance and/or tracking to your purchase.
