Suzi here,
Welcome to my shop of HiddenGlitz, Full of Vintage Treasures.

I have lived many places before settling in sunny Florida!
I grew up in New England on the water which is part of why I love the sea. It led me to see the Pacific in California after 20yrs, and then to the Caribbean where I was able to play chef on mega yachts traveling the world!

Eventually I became land locked, after traveling for over 25 yrs. 7 of which, I never stepped on USA soil. I opened a 4,000 sq ft consignment shop of all my hand picked vintage finds. Called Suzi's Hidden Treasures in Ft Lauderdale, Fl.. After 6 years, the economy took its toll and sadly I had to close the doors. The shop’s loss is your luck as now you can have access to my eclectic treasures here on Etsy! I shop a lot and I shop often so keep checking back for updated listings. I love to pick at flea markets, yard sales, estate sales and thrift stores. I pass on the vintage finds and great deals to you!
I am so greatful I was able to travel to countries while getting paid, at the same time! That was when having a USA passport was a honor and you were respected because of it!!
I loved every day and every country I went to!
Learned the basics of their language in each country, like,
"please kill and pluck the chicken" or I'd be going to the yacht
with a live bird!!
You couldn't pay me enough today to travel out side our own boarders today, scarey enough inside today. Enough babbling :-))

I’ve recently created a shop Facebook page so make sure to “like” us there www.facebook.com/hiddenglitz

Everything is from a smoke free home. We do have cats, but all clothing, feathers and such are in a closed door room. I handwash all items that can be so it arrives to you as clean as possible! Some items are dry cleaned and will be marked as such.
I occasionally find newer items which I list on Ebay.www.ebay.com/shop/hiddentglitz.
It's worth the trip to check it out!

Thank you for stopping and taking a look at Hiddeglitz.

Enjoy and have fun picking.
Suzi

Accepted payment methods

  • Other Method
Payment
I take payments through PayPal, Credit Cards
and USPS Money Orders.
Personnel checks, I wait 10 days for the check to clear.
If YOU ask for a discount, want a better deal for whatever your reason is,
and I agree, payment is expected right away, no e-check, no layaway... pay now! If you cannot do this, please let me know, or do not ask!

Payments are expected within 3 days, unless we have made other arrangements. or I will have to cancel the sale and re-list.
I do send reminders, so please contact me before you buy, if you need some more time, or prefer to put on layaway.

~~~~~~~ Want a Layaway ~~~~~~~

Layaways are available, terms are simple.
I will work with anyone on a item.
Everyone has their reasons. Talk to me.
I never liked loosing something, because I needed more time!
Paid off in 2 or 3 installments, which must be paid monthly.
Item or items, must be paid off in 90 days,
or the money already paid, Will be forfeited.
A Postal Money order is prefered, for the USA,
but paypal and cc accepted.
No layaway on Sale items.
There are no exchanges or refunds on layaway items.
Shipping
I try to ship items everyday. M-F. If payment is received before noon,
it will usually ship the same day.
Most items are shipped Priority which comes w/ insurance. Its faster and safer. Some smaller and less expensive items,
I will send 1st Class.
Fed-ex is also used for oversized items, heavy or not.
International is usually sent 1st Class International.
Each item can be different.

*Please keep in mind, shipping includes packaging materials costs.

If you purchase more than one item and our shipping (inc. pkg. materials) is less than what you paid, I do refund the difference.
Some items simply cannot be shipped together.
The shipping might seem high on our furniture items but there is just no way around that, it's what we have to pay because of the package being over sized and the materials cost.
Sometimes we end up taking some of our shipping cost
out of the actual item cost. Meaning, we eat it.
We do that especially on our furniture items,
because of how big the boxes end up being
by the time it's all packaged up.

**** "INSURANCE" ***
I prefer insurance on all pieces. Being vintage, or custom,
its not like you can run over to the store and buy another.
You worked hard finding this special piece,
maybe the only one left, ever!
Keep all wrapping and take pictures of any damage items due to shipping.
The P.O. insists on photos for a claim to be filed.
I leave this decision up to you. Anything I sell, can have insurance.
Just be sure to let me know.
I am not responsible for lost items in the mail, or a wrong address.

**** "International Buyers" ****
If you do not see your country, just ask. Know your Laws.
International Buyers are responsible for their countries customs
and Laws.
Sending 1st Class is the least expensive, but can not have insurance.
I cannot be responsible for lost items once I have mailed.
Insurance has to be Express for International.

As for the Combined Shipping, I am very Happy to save you money!
Please contact me so I can get the best price out there. It is hard for me to guess which items you might like. Combined items like a dress and earrings is easy, but, a plate and headdress is completely different. So please contact me before paying invoice. You will notice on shipping, under "with another item", the price is the same, now you know why.

Again, I will find the most economical and safest way.

I also recycle when possible. All material is clean,
and comes from a smoke free home.
This saves on costs and the envirorment.
I do have cats.
Clothing and such, are all kept in a air conditioned room,
where the door is always closed.

Thank you for taking the time to read .
Refunds and Exchanges
I do my best to describe every thing , the good and the bad. Same as with my pictures. Please read carefully and look at the pictures.
Pictures are a big part of the description.
I am only human, I might miss something, or have a type-o.
I am only a e-mail away to answer any and all questions.

Most things I sell are vintage and pre-owned, items are not expected to look new. This is part of the uniqueness of buying vintage.
Somewhere in time, someone else loved them, too.
I want every sale to end with a extremely happy customer!

Also, my measurements are not to be ignored.
I take excellent measurements for you.
Please measure twice!
Compare with something similar in your own closet,
that you know and like the way it fits.
Vintage size labels mean squat today.
Refunds are not given because it does not fit.

Shipping prices are not part of a refund.
Please contact me as to any problem, before leaving negitive feedback.
I am only a e-mail away, and I am sure we can work it out.
I read this on another seller's policies, and I am adopting this policy, since it just happen to me ...
NO refunds are given if you leave me neutral or negitive feedback,
BEFORE contacting me with your complaint.
Additional policies and FAQs
My feather creations, are ALL one of a kind.
Most are done with vintage fabrics and vintage jewerly.
I do not accept returns on my creations.
I have had some very bad and expensive experiences in the past.

**My feather creations have come to a stop, as I cannot compete with the prices items from China are.
Just buying the feathers cost me more then a whole outfit from China. Sad, isn't it!

We have made a major move and working overtime on the
fixer upper. More like that movie Money-Pit, Not the house, but problems.
At least we are DIY'ers. My creations have slowed down and have
taken a different direction. My creations from my new studio(yeah!) will be coming out very soon!! Not feathers .....
And my husbands stuff, well, his job has kept him away from home
way too much. Hopefully soon, I can put him to work too.
After his "honey do" fix it list.
He may never have time to play.... :)


To Ensure a Proper Fit,
Arm yourself with Cloth tape measure and follow along with the tips below!

• First things first, know your own measurements!
Approximate sizing and actual measurements!

• All measurement are taken with the garment lying flat, meaning the piece is lying on a table and measured straight across. I then double, as you will do when measuring your piece.

• Find a similar well fitting piece of your own, measure it flat and compare the measurements to those listed .

• Always remember the measurements given are not body measurements but garment measurements and should be slightly bigger (1" to 2") than your body measurements. The extra space is important for fit and overall comfort!!

KEEP these measurements handy, one you've done a dress, coat,
etc, you won't need to do again, just compare!
