Thank you for taking the time to read about Chevron>Bloom Studio. My name is Lou, I am 38 years old, married and have one daughter who is 15 going on 50. I also have two Shetland Sheepdogs, Louie and Saffi.
My shop has been created from my love of vintiques and quirky items for the home. I get excited about giving things which have been "loved before" a second bite of the cherry. I also like upcycling vintage items to give them interior design appeal for your nest. I am a keen photographer/photo editor and get great pleasure from visiting new places and taking shots which really show character and atmosphere . I have been lucky enough to recently visit New York, Paris and Budapest, and like nothing more than a day trawling the shops and markets and taking photos as I go.
I hope my items inspire you and that a Chevron>Bloom purchase finds its way to adorn your home.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
I only except payments through Paypal. Please note you do not need a Paypal account to do this. Mastercard, Maestro, Visa and American Express are all accepted via Paypal. When you check out click the pay by Paypal option and you will be forwarded to a secure page, that gives you the option (on the left han,d side) to pay using your debit or credit card.
Here are some step by step instructions on how to pay;

Payment is due before shipping. I will post an item once I have the full payment for it.
If payment is not recieved within 24 hours of purchase, the item will be relisted and sale cancelled (unless we have come to some other arrangement beforehand).
Your item will be well packaged (using recycled material where possible) and mailed within three working days of your payment. In the UK it will be posted via first class mail (or parcel force if a larger item).

Once posted, shipping times are;

Within the UK takes approximately 1-3 business days.

Within the EU takes approximately 4-5 business days ( Although it does depend on your countries postal service)

To the US takes approximately 4-7 business days.

To Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore etc takes approximately 8-12 business days.

To keep costs down, I ship International airmail, which unfortunately does not offer tracking. If you would like your item to have a tracking number it is approximately an extra $7. Please let me know before you place your order and the shipping rate will be adjusted accordingly.

Duties and local taxes.
As the purchaser, you are responsible for any duties and/or taxes levied at the point of entry into the destination country.
Refunds and Exchanges
Chevron>Bloom Studio ensure that every item ordered leaves us as described on Etsy.

As a lot of the items I sell are vintage (or have vintage components), they are not new and will not be therefore be perfect. They have been loved before, and will have marks, dints, scratches, foxing, small tears etc. I think the timeworn look adds to their charm! I will describe any noticeable issues in individual listings, but be assured that I only sell items on this site that I would be happy to have for myself, or to send as a gift.

I pride myself on accurate descriptions and good images, and will not therefore accept returns unless the item is not as described in the listing.

You are most welcome to ask questions before purchasing a product. Please read the description well, I aim to be very honest about the product I am selling. If you would like additional photos, please send me a conversation.

Items are packaged well, and we are therefore unable to take responsibility for items damaged or lost in transit. Please enquire about insurance to cover this if necessary before ordering.

I will obtain standard proof of posting for all items within the UK, but this only covers goods up to £46 and can be quite a lengthy process to obtain a refund.

Please see
for further information.
