I have totally fallen in love with vintage and have been selling since 2010!!
Foxy Brit Vintage cordially invites you to browse this fine curated vintage & antique online boutique shop. Each item in my shop is hand selected after sometimes hours of searching as for a hidden treasure. These vintage treasures were at sometime in the past set aside or tossed away as something of little value, but my aspiration is to bring them back to life, each one a piece of history that could tell it's own story if it could speak. What stories could be told in each item of priceless value, stories of love and romance, first dates and proms, a tea party, a wedding or with tears a young bride waving goodbye with her scarf to her husband going to war. When you purchase vintage you are also purchasing a history storyline and now you can make the story continue on with each lovely vintage item.
Some of my vintage treasures have gone on to make a sensational stories. One of my hats was bought to use in Disney Theatricals in London. Many of my vintage gloves, hats and apparel were bought to use on set in the T.V. Series Vegas. A set of lovely 1950s apparel was bought by a Mad Men actress to be part of the wardrobe.
Whether a vintage treasure goes on to be famous and filmed or steals a place in your heart and carries on its story with love and romance, tea parties and weddings in your life is up to you to decide.
All I ask is that you value each lovely vintage and antique item. Most of my items in Foxy Brit Vintage are from the 1940s to 1970s. I also have a few items from the 1920s and 1930s. The 1980s makes up the rest, but all are very special! Enjoy your browse!
I have been selling vintage for about four years.
I also like the idea of going green and doing my part to save the environment.
I "Hand Select" each item in my shop and inspect it to make sure it is in great vintage shape and condition. I make sure items I select are smoke free.
"The customer comes first" is my motto, so I will do my utmost to serve you cordially. Thank you for visiting my shop!
*** Foxy Brit Vintage is a smoke free, pet free vintage shop
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
If I put an item on RESERVE with your name remember that it does not necessarily keep it for you. Someone else can buy it. I am too busy of a shop to try to turn all of those purchases around. So the best method to insure you will get the item/items is to purchase it/them as soon as you are able.
I generally will not reserve an item for more than a week, accept under certain situations that I work out with the customer.
I accept lay-aways for items over $70 on an individual basis, of which we work out a payment plan. If you default with the payment and do not finish the payment plan the paid amount is non-refundable.
If an item is $150 or more I usually add insurance and send it Priority-check the listing shipping info as I usually state that the item is shipping Priority.
International orders I always send items first class, which is the lowest and more affordable rate. If an item listing has shipping of around $48 international that is because that item needs to be sent Priority and maybe also insured.
Allow 2-6 weeks for First Class international shipping. Priority Mail International usually takes 6 to 10 business days. I do not refund for lost items in the mail. Although I have not had anything lost in the mail so far. Insured lost items would be paid for by the Postal service.
I usually ship orders out in 1-3 business days--unless I am out of my shop and traveling at the time of the order than it could be 2-4 business days. I always have a shop announcement when I am out of my shop for a couple of days and will also notify you when you order an item.
***NOTICE It is your responsibility to make sure that a real fur item is allowed in to your country and if some furs are allowed and not others before you order. As it is hard for me to find out regulations on each country. If a fur is rejected and sent back because customs does not allow it I will not return shipping on that item. I will give you a refund on the fur itself.
Notice--I will not declare that a purchase is a gift on a customs form, nor will I falsify the value. These are federal offenses in the US and carry severe penalties.
I also am not responsible for international customs fees, taxes, tariffs and duties charges. Please check your country's import regulations and costs. This is the purchasers responsibility.
Refunds and Exchanges
To make sure your item will fit you well, please read the vintage sizing information below and double-check and compare the listing size and your own size to get the best fit. If you are unsure and have a question about the size or appearance of an item, contact me and I will gladly send you more pictures or take additional measurements or pictures. It is important to me that you love ♥ your purchase!
**** SIZING INFO
Notice--vintage clothing fits differently than nowadays clothing, vintage clothing is fitted much closer to the body. It is important that you allow enough room to move comfortably while wearing your vintage garment. Vintage clothing and accessories should always be worn with care and consideration of their age.Vintage garments were often tailored to fit a particular woman and evidence of seams and darts being taken in or out is quite common. It is often possible to have a vintage garment altered to fit you likewise, if your measurements are off by just a bit. I am happy to answer any questions you may have about possible seam allowances, darts, and hem allowances before you purchase.
I try to work with my customers if questions are asked to get proper sizing as to insure proper fit. I also try my hardest to give proper measurements and accurate descriptions of items on the listing. Please contact me first before you purchase with any questions on measurements or other concerns or details. I always try to work with my customers if questions are asked to double check for proper sizing as to insure the best fit.
