One word to describe the product and service-PHENOMENAL!!! These boots are in fantastic condition and have been well taken care of. All details regarding their condition was exact. No hidden surprises. This is so important when shopping for vintage items. They are gorgeous and flawless. I love my new boots! Seller was friendly, appreciative, super informative, and quickly answered questions about the boots. Shipping was lightning quick. I received in 1 business day along with a personal note and gift from the owner. What a special gesture!!!! I HIGHLY recommend visiting her shop. Top rate seller. The entire experience was above and beyond. I am running-not walking, back for more goodies. :) Thank you!

About

•*☮´♥* I believe that every Vintage and Antique Piece has a Personal Story to tell and I ***LOVE*** Stories!!•*☮´♥*

Vintage is the Ultimate Recycling.

Our World is so Stuffed with Stuff. Stuff that is made to break. Stuff that ends up in a Landfill 3 weeks after it is bought. All the Stuff in our lives affects communities at home and abroad, there are Environmental and Social issues attached to All the Cheap, Modern Stuff that we buy and consider "Such a DEAL". Everything comes with a Price, and "Inexpensive Bargain" Stuff comes with a High Price, usually to the Planet and Third World folks we don't read about or really think about.

Years ago, even in the 70's and early 80's, things were still being made with Pride and Care and it wasn't as much about the Corporate bottom $$$ and how cheaply things could be made and sold. Every purchasing decision anyone will ever make implies some moral choice about not only where the item came from, but how it was made and what it's "life" is going to look like beyond being with the person who purchased it. I believe that buying Vintage and Antique Lovelies is like giving a BIG HUG to the Planet and it creates a more sustainable and just World, a World that is being dictated by all of our choices and this is what is left for our children and their children......

Vintage is about L.O.V.E.

ps...By "Trade", I am a Clay Artist, Painter and Designer, please Visit my other Shops to see the work I do when I'm not Hugging the Planet with Vintage LOVE!:

    I'm Kristin Love but this is my Mom and I looked just like her at that age. Quite a few pieces I sell in my Shop were my Parents and they taught me about the Value of Craftsmanship and Pride in one's Work. Vintage and Antique Pieces have those. :)

Hello!! My name is Kristin Love and I am a Clay Artist, Painter and Designer residing in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and I absolutely ♥LOVE♥ what I do! My Philosophy of Vintage is that it is the Ultimate Recycling and Love for this Beauty-Full Planet that we live on and so opened this Shop when my Dad passed away {my Mom has been gone 20+ Years....} as I wanted to share with the World some of the Treasures he and my Mom had collected and that I could no longer keep. When you purchase my Art or the Vintage pieces in this Shop, you are supporting an independent, working Studio Artist and I am Very Very Grateful!! :)
Here are my other Shops and Thank You for Visiting:

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
  • Check
  • Other Method
Payment
*♥* I accept Credit Cards through Etsy's Direct Checkout, Paypal, Personal Checks and Money Orders. Your purchases will not be shipped until payment is received in full. If for some reason you need to cancel your order, PLEASE contact me so that I may re-list it for someone else to enjoy.

*♥* PLEASE NOTE: Sales TAX of 9.5% will be collected for shipments to Washington State, it's the Law and as much as I don't want to, I must! It is only applied to the Purchase Price of the Vintage Piece, {not the Shipping...YAY!!}, and Thank You in advance for your understanding. :)

*♥* Your order will ship within 1-4 Business Days of receiving payment. If you are paying with a Personal Check, your Order will Ship after your Check clears my Bank Account and please be aware this may take up to 5 Business Days after I receive the Check.

*♥* I GLADLY Refund Shipping Overages....YAY!!! If there are any significant shipping overages I will REFUND your Paypal or Credit Card account after the piece has shipped. If you have payed via Check or Money Order, I will include a refund Check with your order. Etsy does not provide us with a Shipping Calculator or "Zones" for Shipping in the United States so, for example, when Shipping in the US I must always use the most expensive destination (like Florida!) for my Shipping Costs. Thank You for your understanding and please contact me with any Questions you may have about this or a Quote on shipping before you purchase a piece.

*♥* PLEASE NOTE: INTERNATIONAL Customers are responsible for any and all Duties, Tariffs, Taxes and Customs Fees that may be incurred. Please be aware of this before Purchasing as it's not my responsibility and I am not liable for paying for them.

•´♥¸. INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING INSURANCE is now available through Etsy for a very AFFORDABLE RATE!! If you live outside of the United States and would like me to Insure your package, you need to contact me so that I may inquire about rates and get back to you.
Thank you for buying Beauty-Full Vintage!!
:)
Shipping
Just a quick note on my shipping policies:
I am a Pro-Active "GREEN" Shipper!!
This means that I use recycled packaging and shipping materials as much as possible, but be assured that this will not compromise the safety of sending your purchases, and we are both leaving less of an environmental footprint....YAY!!

I am offering COMBINED SHIPPING to the same address if you purchase pieces from ANY of my Shops at the same time....YAY!! What does this mean, exactly...? It means, for example, that if you purchase a lovely Vintage Piece in this Shop and then go over to my other Shop, loveartstudios.etsy.com and buy a beautiful painting or photograph, or go to my "Flagship" Shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/loveartworks I will put them in the same box, calculate the shipping, and then refund you the shipping overages to your Paypal account! WOW...great Vintage Finds and
Art and saving money too!! :)

I pack my Vintage pieces VERY CAREFULLY but as an experienced "shipper" I have realized that I have no control over how my package is handled after it leaves my hands, therefore I INSURE all of my BREAKABLE and "Expensive" {{meaning over $50, especially Vintage Jewelry!!!}} DOMESTIC SHIPPING orders. I also ship using Delivery Confirmation in order to better protect both the buyer and myself because you have bought a work of art and have put forth your hard earned money for it so I want us both to be covered in case the "worst" happens. This usually only costs a few extra dollars and is reflected in my shipping prices. If you live outside of the United States and would like me to insure your package, you need to contact me so that I may inquire about rates and get back to you.

Your order will ship within 1-3 business days of receiving payment.

I ship all DOMESTIC address purchases either USPS First Class (if they are lightweight) or 2-3 Day Priority Mail (if they are heavier) so that you receive your purchase as soon as possible!
All INTERNATIONAL Orders are shipped USPS First Class Airmail and usually arrives within 5-10 Business days. :)

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: Please be aware any customs fees, taxes, tariffs, duties, etc. that may be incurred are the buyer's responsibility.

If there are any significant shipping overages ($1.25 or more) I will REFUND your Paypal or Credit Card account after the piece has shipped. If you have payed via check or money order, I will include a refund check with your order.

If you have any questions or concerns about your purchase and it's shipping, or would like to fore-go the insurance, please do not hesitate to contact me here:

Refunds and Exchanges
As I mentioned in my shipping policies, I insure every Domestic package over $50 that I send. If your Vintage piece arrives cracked or broken and has been Insured, you would have to photograph the piece and then YOU make a claim with the shipper, have your money refunded. If the piece has not been insured, then I will not be responsible for any damage incurred.

**PLEASE keep in mind that I take GREAT CARE in packing my Vintage Pieces.** For an item to be broken when you receive it the Post Office would have had to play a game of Rugby with it. In accordance with this, I can not be responsible for broken or lost items during shipping. If this concerns you please ask for the package to be Insured and I will change the Listing for you!!

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: As Insurance is very expensive for overseas packages, I do not insure the Vintage Piece unless specified by the buyer. If something does happen to your order and you chose not to insure it, then I will replace the piece/s (which means I will have to actually make them again) and charge you a nominal fee and postage will be your responsibility. This may seem "unfair" but it is your choice whether to insure your artwork or not and I am willing to meet you half way by reducing my price on my artwork to help if something happens in shipping.

*´♥`*If you are not satisfied, for any reason, please contact me immediately and I will do my best to create a positive outcome and make it right.... my goal is great customer service and happy Vintage all around. You may return a piece for ANY reason, but you MUST return it packed as carefully as I did when I sent it to you. Returns must be mailed back to me insured and at the buyers expense within 7 days of receipt and the purchase price will be refunded upon my receipt of the Piece unharmed. I regret that I cannot refund shipping charges.*´♥`*
