About

The ChiTownBoutique Story

I have loved vintage images, books and cards for as long as I can remember and have collected them for almost 40 years now. My first business venture was in the 80s called the Silk Garden. I wanted to create items that did not have a giant logo on them or were mass produced. Years later the same passion for unique items led me to open ChiTownBoutique. I began selling my original artwork, baby clothing, t shirts and commissioned pieces. Vintage Circus items always the main focus.

In November of 2009 after a few years on my own website, I decided to make the leap to Etsy. It was the perfect Indie community for sellers like myself to interact with each other, and attract buyers that were looking for handcrafted, unique items. By March I had made the complete transition and was a full time Etsy seller. It was a bit scary at first as I wondered if anyone would notice my little shop among the thousands of other shops, but it wasn’t long before I was getting daily sales and messages asking if I was interested in selling wholesale to boutiques across the world.

Etsy has been a great decision for me, there are frustrations as in any venture, but overall I’m glad I ventured over. I do everything alone so it can be taxing, but I sincerely love what I do and I know that there is nobody else that will ever pay as much attention to every detail, and care as much as I do about every single item that I make.

Restoring vintage images is a full time job itself. Many of the cards or pages have lost their color and could have folds, tears, missing parts, writing or yellowed with age. I have often spent 6-8 hours a day, 5 to 7 days restoring just one image. Many vintage restorers will agree that it's not as simple as just scanning the image. I also believe in Integrity, Honesty and accountability, in all aspects of my life and business.

I'm always happy to help new shops by either being their first customer, or offering any help and advice they need. I have purchased hundreds of items on etsy through a leap of faith and have yet to be disappointed.

I try to have all the answers to any questions in every listing as well as in my policies to keep messages to a minimum. Not that I don’t enjoy talking to everyone, because I truly do. But, because I am trying to get your orders out as quickly as possible.

I have been working 18 hours a day, 7 days a week since I opened, as there is so much more than just printing orders. I have to inventory and place new stock orders at least twice a week, order office supplies, envelopes, make tags, print shipping labels and receipts, create custom orders, answer emails, check tracking, create new images, scan ,clean and transform vintage images, list, renew and update. It’s not easy and there are no shortcuts to success. But… my rewards are the incredible photos and letters I get from happy customers that are now part of my quirky little ChiTown family.

Last updated on September 7, 2015
Welcome to Chi-Town Boutique. I have been collecting vintage books, cards and images for 30-40 years. Since I was a child all I ever wanted to do was paint,draw, and create art. It has been the one constant throughout my life and I can't imagine doing anything else. Before I ever consider sharing anything I have created, I must love everything about it as I am my own worst critic. If I don't feel it is perfect then how could I expect anyone else to. From the bottom of my heart I appreciate everyone that visits my little shop and looks at my work. If something made you smile then I did my job. Thank You!

Please visit https://www.etsy.com/shop/VariationsofVintage for incredible vintage finds lovingly offered by my cousin ...yes we are twins :-)

Shipping
PLEASE NOTE: Personalized or customized items can NOT be returned, PLEASE check sizes before placing orders and feel free to ask any questions beforehand.

Personalizing is free. If you want a name or number on your item please type in the details at checkout. If you want a specific font or ink color, please contact me before ordering.

SHIPPING: MONDAY-THURSDAY: All items will ship within 3 -10 Business days after payment is received/cleared Monday through Thursday by 1:00pm CST.

All items are sent with tracking, you will get the tracking number through an Etsy message once the item has shipped. Please keep an eye out for delivery if you have concerns/ or have had packages delivered to a non secured area.


HOLIDAY SHIPPING: Due to the high demand shipping may be slower than expected, PLEASE allow for extra time as the post office is also overwhelmed.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING INFORMATION: PLEASE READ:orders may be subject to additional VAT taxes or duties through customs. ChiTown Boutique is NOT responsible for any of these fees. This is solely the responsibility of the buyer. International orders COULD take up to 12 weeks to arrive.

Please know that once the package leaves the US the tracking will not be updated until it reaches you. PLEASE note that I will help every step of the way, but it is much easier for you to track it once it is in your country, I do not have the resources that you do such as the location of the nearest customs/postal office that delivers to your specific area, as well as language barriers that I have no control of. It is much easier for you to contact your local post office/customs and give them the tracking number from the US. They will be able to help you much faster and easier than I could :-)
Please check with your local customs official before purchasing if you are unsure of any fees.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are unhappy with any item due to my negligence, please email me immediately and I will promptly replace, exchange, or refund your purchase price. Please, send item back in original unwashed, unworn condition, with tags attached within 7 days of receiving. Refunds will be credited back to your paypal or credit card account the moment I receive the returned item.

***Any items not reported within 7 days will not be refunded, replaced, or credited.**

NO EXCHANGE or REFUNDS on any item that is PERSONALIZED, CUSTOMIZED, OR if you ORDERED the WRONG SIZE or STYLE so PLEASE be sure that you have ordered the correct size and style. If in doubt I will be happy to help with measurements to insure the best fit.

PLEASE DO NOT ASSUME THAT BECAUSE THE LISTING PHOTO SHOWS A TANK TOP, THAT YOU WILL GET A TANK TOP. YOU MUST SELECT THE STYLE FROM THE DROP DOWN MENU.


Custom orders also include any item ordered that is NOT listed, but requested by you, or items printed on sizes or colors not offered in the actual listing.

PLEASE Check the size charts below for the best fit.
If in doubt take a shirt that fits well and lay it flat, measure from just under the armhole to the other without turning shirt over for the chest/width. Then measure from the very top at the shoulder seam to the very bottom of the hem for the length. Compare those measurements to the ones in the listing for the specific item you need. PLEASE remember that ALL styles have different measurements.
