About

Chikk Vintage Bazaar: Altered Couture from Vintage Clothes + Home Decor

Our shop offers unique altered couture clothing, handmade from other vintage clothes and linens, plus vintage home decor, all curated with love and care and ranging from the late 1800s to the 1990s. l'm a flower child with a passion for the environment, living half the time in sunny California and the other half in the middle of the Atlantic rain forest in the mountains of Rio de Janeiro. When in California, I thrift often but it's in the middle of nature, listening to the tropical birds singing that I get the best inspiration for my Etsy shop.

Payment
❤️ If you are in the MILITARY, or live in a USA non-contiguous state, please contact us before paying so that we may give you a correct shipping rate. Thank you!

❤️ For USA orders we offer STORE CREDIT for any item you would like to return. Please email us ASAP and let us know you would like to return the item, as we must receive the item back within 10 days of the delivery date. Once we receive the returned item in original condition, you will be given in store credit for the amount of the item only - you are responsible for all shipping costs. That credit is good for one year.

ALL PRICES NEGOTIABLE! If you want to make me an offer or ask for a discount for anything on my shop, please let me know and we'll talk.

Are your vintage items in good condition?

We always choose items in the best condition we can find. Most of them are vintage, that is, at least 20 years old, some are antiques, 100+ years old, and a few are retro. Some have lived many lives and have a history of many past decades. Natural wear and tear adds to their charm.

I usually describe them to the best of my ability, so read the item description and check the photos carefully before buying. Slight wear and imperfections are to be expected, and are listed, if noticeable. We ship from a smoke-free, pet-free environment and the clothing items are all professionally cleaned before shipping, with the exception of furs, leather, suede and the sort.

Are your items environmentally responsible?

Many years ago we bought farming land in the mountains of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and allowed the Atlantic rain forest to grow back on it. It is now thick, lush and very beautiful, allowing for many threatened species to live in it.
We do offer a few vintage and antique leather and fur items, however, we do not support any killing of animals in any shape or form.
