About

Fringe: edgy; exceptional; unique

Having an Etsy store meshes my love of pop culture, treasure hunting and fashion. I'm a professional writer and Etsy is a tangible outlet for my creativity.

My hardcover book "Fringe Florida" is a journey into the heart of unconventional lifestyles that I call "Fringe." See the theme here?

My shop provides the components for individualized looks, if not unconventional ones. My taste spans the decades, which is reflected in the eclectic mix of items you will find here. I enjoy creating new looks from a mixture of old ones.

I prefer the romance of the old to hollowness of new. A vintage locket can take me back to WWII; a flashy, a metallic blouse plants me in Studio 54. A 1960s wiggle dress isn't just a sexy dress; a Vera scarf, not just a pretty piece of silk. A vintage item's design, materials and origin reflect the culture of its time.

OK. I'm prone to vacationing in a little fantasy as well as nerdsville when researching my finds. Slap me, and call me Gertrude. Just don't break my Pyrex bowl. I need it to wash a 1950s slip.

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

Vintage clothing sizes tend to run smaller than modern sizes and even modern sizes vary by manufacturer. So, size estimates are just that, estimates. Please go by garment measurements.

I measure garments face down. Bust is measured armpit to armpit, shown one way and often doubled. Waist, hip and wrist measurements are also taken one way and doubled. Shoulder width is shoulder seam to shoulder seam. Back is between shoulder seams in shoulder blade area. Length is taken from top of shoulder to hem. With strapped or strapless garments, length is bodice top to hem. Arms - shoulder seam to cuff.

To assure fit, please measure a similar garment that fits you and compare to given measurements

Gift wrapping and packaging

I gift wrap upon request.

Item Condition

I rate item condition conservatively. Unless specifically noted that an item is only for display or for repair, all items are in wearable condition.

I clean jewelry, but leave patina on sterling as some customers prefer. Please note that vintage items are pre-loved and typically show some signs of that love even if it’s wear to the underside of a jewelry clasp, or loose strings. But also know that even with minor flaws, vintage items are usually higher quality that what you can find new in stores today.

Shipping Costs and Options

I refund overage of $3 or more of postage cost. Any item over 1 pound automatically ships USPS Priority in the U.S. If you prefer Priority Shipping for light item, please select that option and contact me if you don't see option.

International buyers: Large jewelry purchases may require additional postage for USPS priority shipping to meet your country’s postal requirements. For example, jewelry to Italy must ship Priority.

Returns

I accept returns under conditions:
-Item must be in condition it was shipped
-tags must still be attached
-must initiate return within 3 days of receipt
-buyer pays all shipping costs

Refund minus 15% restocking fee and shipping cost / Full credit given on exchanges or shop credit.
