About

Two friends on a mission to find cool junk!

We Blackbird girls have been collectors for our entire lives, and meeting each other was like long lost sisters meeting. Everything just clicked into place -- we understand each other so well! When one of us falls in love with a piece of junk, you can bet the other one is right there with her!

Opening our Etsy shop in 2010 was the beginning of our dream, because it gave us an outlet to share our cool finds with the rest of the world. We wanted a shop of our own, and Etsy allowed us to have a shop that was open to the world! Instead of passing up things that we found on our travels, we get to pass them on!

We've traveled far and wide, and we still never get tired of digging to find treasures. We write about our finds on our blog, Four and Twenty (http://blackbirdantiques.blogspot.com/), and we share what we learn along our journey.

Accepted payment methods

Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Returns and exchange details
We really strive to describe the items exactly within the listing, and always list every defect that we see. That being said, vintage items are old and used, and therefore are sold as is. But if you have a problem, convo us within 3 days of receipt so we can discuss any problems or concerns.

Once you have contacted us with an issue, please respond to all inquiries as soon as possible. We are happy to help and want to fix any problem if we can in a timely manner. Please send your responses within 48 hours; a lack of response from the buyer within that window of time (48 hours) will be understood that the issue is resolved.

We will gladly refund or exchange items that are damaged during shipping within the US. Things like that happen sometimes. Convo us within 3 days of receipt your order with a photo of the item's damage, and let us know how we can best help you.

We will not offer a refund or exchange for any other reason, ever.

Items shipped internationally cannot be returned or exchanged, and no refunds will be offered EVER. Order at your own risk. We will be as helpful as we can, but once it leaves us to travel the globe, it is gone.

Please know that we provide the most accurate measurements possible for vintage clothing. We may give an approximate size for reference (based on US clothing size charts) or the size stated on the label, but you must use the measurements given in the Item Details section of the listing to determine if a garment will fit. If you need more detailed measurements, we will be happy to provide them.

The above applies to shoes, as well. If available, we will give the "stated size" (the size marked on the shoes) or an approximate size (based on US shoe size charts) in the listing, but FOR REFERENCE ONLY. You MUST use the measurements given in the Item Details section of the listing for fit.

***We will not offer a refund or exchange on clothing that does not fit.***
Payment
We take payments directly through Etsy with your credit card, Etsy gift cards or PayPal.
Shipping
Items will be shipped within 3-5 business days of purchase.

If you want something insured, or shipped more quickly, then please convo us BEFORE the purchase. We will change the shipping amount to suit your needs.

We ship via USPS First Class mail or Priority mail; their shipping times can be estimated, but not guaranteed. If you need a guaranteed date, you must use USPS Express. We will not offer a refund on an item that does not arrive by a particular date; once it leaves us, it is controlled by the USPS.

We ship by the most affordable way possible, and in most cases, the greenest way possible. We love to reuse boxes and packing material to help lower the environmental impact where we can. We do not include packing slips or invoices.

We ship through the USPS, and delivery confirmation and tracking is included with all domestic orders. Orders under 1 pound will ship via First Class shipping, and all others will ship via Priority Mail.

We refund any shipping difference of more than $1 at the time of printing postage.

We will ship internationally, but please check the refunds and exchanges section for more info. International shipping amount will be added after we determine the shipping cost to your area. Convo us.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you ever have any questions at all, please convo us! We are happy to give clearer descriptions, dimensions, anything. Use the measurements given to determine for yourself if it will fit you.

Vintage clothing doesn't fit like modern clothing, which is cut with a looser shape to fit more sizes. The construction techniques used in the past decades are very different from today's techniques. Vintage clothing is cut much closer to the body, and the fabrics may have less give. You should allow enough in the measurements to move comfortably while wearing your vintage garments. You should always wear vintage with care, and take the age of the garment into consideration.

SIZING INFORMATION

Here is a link to the standard size chart that we reference: https://shop.alz.org/App_Themes/ALZ_Public_Responsive/docs/SizeChart.pdf

*Shoulder to shoulder: Measurement of across the back from shoulder seam to shoulder seam, when the garment is laid flat. It is not doubled.

*Waist: Measurement of smallest part of waist when garment is laid flat, then it is doubled.

*Hips: Measurement of fullest part of hips when garment is laid flat, then it is doubled.

*Sleeve length: Measurement of length of sleeve from shoulder / shoulder seam to the hem of the sleeve.

*Bodice length: Measurement from the top of the shoulder to the bodice seam.

*Overall length: Measurement from the top of the shoulder to the lowest hemline.

*Circumference at hem: Measurement of the total circumference taken at the hem of the garment.
