This seller is wonderful! The item had an excellent description and photographs online, but turned out to be even lovelier than I had imagined. Shipment was prompt and prepared with careful packaging. The seller went the extra mile and included a handwritten note about the history of the bowl which will make it an even more special gift for my friends (a newlywed couple). This is my first purchase on Etsy, and LosFabulous has set the bar VERY high!

About

shop story

Wayne DeSelle is the owner of Los Fabulous and an avid vintage collector. He started early, collecting American midcentury modern dinnerware right out of college. Since then his appreciation and knowledge of vintage has gradually expanded, and he's learned to love the whole range of vintage design — finding beauty and inspiration in everything from the most ornate Victorian pieces to the sleekest of minimalist designs. He thinks it all can be fabulous as long as you love it.

After moving houses in 2011 Wayne realized he had run out of room to store even one more piece of vintage dinnerware. In short, he needed to make space if he was going to retain his sanity, and he started selling his collectibles online. He combined his love of fine vintage design with his passion for compelling photography — gained as a long-time magazine art director — to produce a finely curated collection of beautiful vintage pieces, presented beautifully. Once he started selling he realized that bringing people together with great vintage was exciting and fulfilling. So, in the time between working on print publications, he hunts for great finds in the hopes of offering something that's just perfect for someone else who appreciates fabulous vintage.

    If there were a PhD in thrifting, I'd have it! I have always loved great vintage design from all eras and I'm especially happy to find good homes for beautiful things that might otherwise have been lost to the dustbin of history.

Shop policies

The world is full of delightful things from every era. Living with wonderful objects from another time can be deeply fulfilling—and is the ultimate form of recycling in an era of often disposable goods. Items from the past are rich with the fantastic stories not only of who used them, but of life in another time, from another perspective. We invite you to create your own stories with the beautifully designed vintage decor we offer.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
We accept payments through PayPal — which means you can pay with Visa, Mastercard, or American Express, as well as with a direct debit to your bank account — and via Etsy Direct checkout which also lets you pay by credit card.

Please note that you do not need an account to pay for your items through PayPal, and some people prefer the security of using PayPal. Choose the PayPal option during checkout. After you submit your order click the "Pay Now" button, then scroll down and you will see the option to pay with a credit or debit card without having to sign up for PayPal.
Shipping
Insurance:
For breakable and delicate items insurance is included automatically as part of the shipping cost.

Carriers:
We ship via USPS to your Etsy registered address and our quotes are based on their rates. Most items are shipped priority, but large or heavy items may be shipped parcel post. If you have specialized shipping concerns, please contact us before purchasing.

We do combine shipping, but please be aware that many heavy or large glassware items are costly to ship and will not always result in lower shipping costs.

Overcharges:
Estimating shipping costs is an inexact science. We will happily refund overpayments related to shipping and packaging that total more than three dollars.

Schedule:
We generally ship your purchases within 1-3 business days (Monday-Friday) of your payment. If you need something right away please contact us first to make arrangements as we can often accommodate your schedule if you need something more quickly.

Packing:
As lovers of vintage items, we believe in recycling both decor and packaging. Therefore we reuse boxes, bubble wrap, tissue paper, and other packaging that is clean and in reusable condition. Rest assured that everything is well packaged and meant to look as beautiful as possible. And if it's green in color it is definitely recyclable.

Pickup:
Can be arranged with those of you who wish to do so. We are in Los Angeles in Carthay Square in zip code 90035.

International:
Even when not specifically listed, rates for international shipments are available for most items. Please inquire before buying and in your email furnish your full address and contact info. Nearly all international shipping will be via US Priority or First Class Mail to local mail, and time and costs vary by country and package type. In most cases packages must go through local customs and any costs or tariffs are the responsibility of the recipient. We can ship FedEx and UPS, but they often cost substantially more.
Refunds and Exchanges
Philosophy:
Your satisfaction is very important to us. We make every effort to accurately describe items and their overall condition through both photos and words. We welcome you to ask as many questions as you would like beforehand—we are honest and as detailed as possible in our descriptions but are happy to provide more information. Please keep in mind that we only sell vintage items, and they carry with them reminders of their previous lives and loves—it's what gives them their charm.

Returns:
With that in mind, returns are accepted only if the item was misrepresented. In that case a full refund will be given, with buyer to pay return shipping. Please contact us as soon as possible as the item must be received by us within one week after it was delivered to you.

Damage:
If an item arrives damaged, please contact us first before filing a claim with the carrier.
Additional policies and FAQs
We strive for accuracy in our descriptions and item histories, and if you find us to be in error in any way we'd love to hear from you so that we can correct our listings and offer the best possible information to our customers. People have emailed us in the past and we are thrilled to have learned new things from them!
