Welcome to my shop, "Fancy Vintage Finds". This shop was created to share my love of buying and selling vintage treasures. I hope you will enjoy browsing through the finds and discovering the perfect gift for yourself or someone else! Sending an item as a gift is possible, please convo me to discuss using an alternate address, gift wrapping and/or adding a special message :)

Vintage items tend to show signs of age. These little imperfections do not detract from the original beauty of an item. I will try to detail an item's condition as best I can with pictures and a written description. Please contact me with any questions you may have about an item.

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
I accept payment through PayPal which is safe, fast and convenient. I also have Direct Checkout which means you can use your credit card, debit card, or an Etsy Gift Card.

Items will usually be shipped within two business days of receiving conformation of the payment transaction. If I am away from home for a few days there will be a notice in my shop announcement, explaining the date I will be able to ship items by.
*Combined shipping available. Please convo me with items you wish to purchase and I will be happy to get you a combined shipping rate.*

Items will be packaged in a careful manner and mailed out in envelopes, wrapped bags or boxes. With fragile items, recycled (clean) shipping material such as boxes, bubble wrap or Styrofoam will be used whenever possible. Insurance and a tracking number can be added for an additional shipping cost at the request of the buyer. Items will be shipped with Canada Post.

Shipping Prices have changed-

Canada Post is changing the shipping rates to the US from Canada. They no longer offer the less expensive "surface" option and are now using "Air" mail which is faster.

International customers - I now prefer to use air shipping to get your package there within 10 business days, rather than the less expensive "surface" which can take up to 9 weeks. However, I will still have to use surface shipping when I have not charged a high enough shipping rate. Please convo me if you would like faster shipping, even if it will raise the shipping price.

Please be aware that your country may impose duties, taxes and other fees which you will have to pay before your order will be released from customs. If you are unsure and need more information, please contact your local customs office for details. Any customs fees are the responsibility of the customer. Items shipped internationally may take up to nine weeks to arrive.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you receive an item which is very different from its original description I will accept returns and give a refund of the full cost of the item before shipping. Please note that the buyer will be responsible for any fees associated with shipping. In the event that an item is extremely damaged, a picture should be provided. If an item is unsatisfactory it must be mailed back at the buyer's expense. Exceptions to policies will be determined by shop owner when appropriate. It is my goal to ensure you are satisfied with your purchase!

If there are any questions about the size, style or condition of an item please contact me before you purchase and I will be happy to help.
Additional policies and FAQs
Condition: In my shop I will describe items according to the following vintage scale-

Excellent- The item is in like new condition with no flaws to report
Great- The item is in almost like new condition, with very few flaws to report
Good- The item has some mentioned flaws but is in good overall condition
Fair- The item can still be enjoyed although it may have some significant flaws which will be mentioned

*It is important to note that vintage items have been around a long time, they are almost always going to have some kind of imperfection. I try my best to describe each item accurately, if at any time you have a question please do not hesitate to contact me.

Vintage fabrics often have a musty/old kind of smell that can be taken care of with a few launderings. I will mention in a listing if I have laundered an item, usually the only ones I have not washed are items that must be dry cleaned or are in "never-been-used condition. I recommend washing/hand-washing fabric items a few times before use.

Happy Shopping :-)
