Announcement   Buy more and pay less! Just ask, and I will suggest a discount price!
NOTE TO INTERNATIONAL SHOPPERS:
You are encouraged to read the Shipping section in my Shop Policies.

GENERAL (YEAR ROUND) SHIPPING NOTE:
Some of my items have no extra shipping cost if sent within the US, while others go priority mail. I know the 1st class gamble is cheaper, but I am rather keen on having the unusual and collectible items insured. This is the way I do business.
For International shipments, the minimum fee is usually $10, but higher for a "priority" item, as mentioned above.

LOOKING FOR SCARVES/CLOTH ITEMS?:
Go to my shop called Star Scarves, A Vintage Collection.
http://www.etsy.com/shop/StarScarves

SECTIONS:
As though in Star's Department Store, you can choose between Star items and Found items in various categories. Otherwise the shop arrangement, while entertaining, may be overwhelming.

EXTRAS:
My items come in a tiny purse, cosmetic bag, special box, or there is a bonus item.

GIFT WRAPPING:
Available, on request.

She was hanging out with the other ethnic dolls at St Vincent de Paul today, so very far from her country of origin...which is perhaps Hungary...

    This about section is a work in process. Even the portrait I have chosen may be temporary. It was easy to write a story for my second Etsy shop, StarScarves. But my thoughts for this shop are all over the map, like the stuff I sell here.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept either Paypal or credit card.
Shipping
I do my best to ship within 3-5 business days.

How I ship generally depends on the value of the item. Within the U.S. I either ship USPS 1st class; and the cost is included in the price of the item. Or I send by USPS Priority Mail (generally for higher end items that I wish to insure), and there is an additional charge.

I love to ship Internationally! For USPS 1st Class I generally charge $10. For heavier or high-end items the charge is usually $25. On occasion the International shipping costs may be greater.

The customer is responsible for any additional charges incurred due to customs, etc. And I am not responsible for delays that may occur due to customs or the idiosyncrasies of some International postal systems.

While I have a great track record for getting items delivered, I cannot "track" items shipped internationally from my end. Proactive engagement with your own postal system (using the provided Customs #) is strongly advised.
Refunds and Exchanges
A refund is provided if an item is lost or damaged in transit anywhere in the world, or if an EU buyer exercises their right to return an item as per the EU Directive on Consumer Rights.
Additional policies and FAQs
1) "A little something extra": I typically put the purchase inside of a nice box, coin purse or unique receptacle before it goes into its mailer. Or else I throw in a little something extra!

2) Metal sensitivities: If you are allergic to most every metal that touches your skin, except for precious metals, you buy my stuff at your own risk. Though some ear wires I use are silver or gold plated. If you are ultra sensitive, you may need to touch up some necklace items with clear fingernail polish...or only wear long chains over turtle necks in the winter! My products are checked for sturdiness and must be fairly good quality, but they do not come with a content label. All my chains are used, funky or downright old.

3) Stuff with history: Most of what I sell is either vintage or antique (though on occasion I may post supply items that are less than 20 years old). In other words, the items likely have a history with previous owners. Thus, there may be flaws or signs of age. As much as possible, however, I alert the buyer to visible imperfections in my detailed descriptions.
