About

Romance your Home all year-round!

Several years ago, I sewed Christmas stockings using a piece of handloomed linen from the 1920's a friend had given me. This was the caprice of a moment. But when all the work and stitching and trimming were done I made ready my table for an at-home Christmas market sale - and, to my surprise, sold every piece! So now, come Christmas, with the enticing aroma of homemade scones and hot spiced wine, I hold a private sale for friends & welcomed company. I do my best to use vintage material whenever possible for my decor items so that they have an 'old world' feel, and offer whimsical shapes inspired by the past that I draw and cut myself, to bring some magic into your Home. Fall under the spell!

Later I ventured into home decor, beginning with decorative pillow cases. I enjoy taking time to choose and find the fabric: antique handloomed linen from France or Italy, then French 'toile de jouy' with crisp and fresh colours, or Swiss silk taffeta of high quality. These kinds of fabric can be expensive but a pillow or two can add a lovely touch to one's bedroom, or any room, without depleting anyone's purse. I sometimes find a unique remnant at the flea market, that I wash carefully to transform into something exquisite yet useable. Eventually I arrived at full bedding parures. A parure for me is the duvet cover (with handsewn buttons), two standard-sized pillow cases and two 16" X 16" decorative pillow shams in the same motif and/or colours as the duvet cover. I use a 100% smooth Swiss cotton percale; sometimes I find a beautiful vintage sheet that I cut and re-shape to give it new life. In fact, I make all of my own bedding - and bedding for friends, too! My favourite is 'Snow White' here featured.

Shop policies

Last updated on March 17, 2015
Adoring Vintage specializes in one-of-a-kind handmade decor items for the home, using mostly vintage or antique material from Europe, and exquisite vintage jewellery, most of which is signed and in excellent condition. If you have any questions regarding my policies I am here to answer them and be of assistance.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
Paypal only, thank you!
Shipping
I use international Swiss Priority Airmail (normally about 5-8 business days; some countries like Australia take longer) to ensure your package arrives safely and as promptly as possible. All items will be carefully wrapped and bubble-packed so that they arrive to you safely and in good condition. Shipping costs from Switzerland are based on gram, and I make an estimate based on their chart and what the packaged item might weigh; if the actual shipping cost ends up being a little less than indicated please kindly consider the difference as covering the cost of stuffed envelop, bubble bag, wrapping paper, etc.

PLEASE NOTE: I will use a bubble enveloppe as opposed to a box: shipping costs from Switzerland are high, and using a box starts at a minimum of ca. USD20.00, even if the package is light. I feel you are paying for my item, not a box!

If you wish Swiss Economy Airmail (about 11-15 business days), which costs somewhat less, please let me know in advance.

If you wish your package to be registered (similar to confirmed delivery, not the same as insured) please let me know in advance as the cost can be quite high. This is the only shipping method for which delivery is confirmed; for all other shipping methods I have no control once the package leaves my hands so, sadly, cannot answer for it; however please know that the Swiss postal system is excellent and very efficient, and packages do not usually get lost.

For all items I ship within two business days of receiving payment. If, for some reason, there is a delay in shipment (holiday, travelling, etc.) I will let you know promptly. I will notify you when your order has been shipped.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to be happy with your purchase and will do my utmost to make that happen. However if that is not the case please notify me as soon as you receive the package and let me know if I can do anything to make it right. You may return the item within five business days of receiving it but the shipping cost will be for your account. As soon as I receive the item in the same condition in which it was sent I will reimbruse your payment promptly.
Additional policies and FAQs
Adoring Vintage may refuse to sell to some countries where there is high probability of package loss.
