Purveyor of quality vintage items: From Lilly Pulitzer to Lip Service - if it's over-the-top, it belongs in my shop!

Welcome to King Arts and Vintage!
Our focus is the urban everyday - think boots and leather jackets...with a sub-specialty in cult collectibles - think 1950s/1960s Swirl, Lily Pulitzer, Goldworm... and 1980s/1990s club fave Lip Service...in addition to our beloved cotton summer dresses, of course!
We have thousands of unlisted pieces so ask away if questing for something specific :)

**Policies, the short version: All sales are FINAL, No Returns, No Refunds (Partial or Full), No Guarantees, No Warranties expressed or implied.
**Shipping, the short version: USPS Priority Mail with tracking number always!

Greetings and thank you for visiting King Arts and Vintage.

Please consider purchases carefully and know that all sales are FINAL, No Returns, No Refunds (Partial or Full), No Guarantees, No Warranties expressed or implied.

Mobile Users, PLEASE NOTE: We are a VINTAGE shop. We sell Used Pre-Worn VINTAGE items that are in overall Great condition, but are NOT NEW or Perfect.
Please review your order listing details and images on a bigger screen - it's just more fun that way!! :)

Please review all images on "zoom" setting as part of the description.

When you purchase an item from King Arts and Vintage you agree to our policies. General shop policy is Buyer Uber Alles as long as things don't get ridiculous, i.e. fraudulent, etc., etc.

All items are considered One-Of-A-Kind Vintage so please consider purchases carefully and know that all sales are FINAL, No Returns, No Refunds (Partial or Full), No Guarantees, No Warranties expressed or implied.

All vintage clothing and accessories will show some signs of wear, however gentle, in accordance with their age. Fabrics and thread are naturally more delicate than a new, triple-stitched seam on a fast-fashion dress made in China and bought at the mall.
If this does not appeal to you, vintage clothing will not always meet your expectations and it may not be the best investment for you.

Vintage Source Info:

Our studio is a non-smoking, pet-free environment.

Due to possible allergies and the preservation of the condition of the garment, we usually leave the cleaning to the buyer unless stated.

We do gently launder anything that we upcycle or feel would benefit aesthetically from a good wash. This is usually stated as "gently rinsed and hung dry."

If the piece has been over-dyed, then we can safely say the item has been boiled clean.

Shipping
I use USPS Priority Mail with free tracking number whenever possible and calculate postage based on a west coast/furthest point destination.

I will happily refund any shipping overage in excess of 1.00 USD, but the buyer must PLEASE REMIND ME to do this when you receive your item.

We ship USPS ONLY and use USPS Priority Mail Express for rush requests so please be aware that this option is VERY EXPENSIVE, more than you may assume.

**We will cancel any transaction with a rush request deadline that we cannot meet if the buyer does not immediately communicate acceptance of our normal shipping schedule.
**Deadlines requested without quick, clear buyer communication will also be cancelled. Help us help you :)

ANY issue or complaint must be brought up via Etsy convo within 3 days of tracking number confirming receipt of item. Feedback Extortion, Buyer Fraud and Bullying are not tolerated in this shop and will be dealt with via all available channels. (Sorry, but, yes, it has come to this - mobile apps have made newbies' expectations a tad more dynamic than optimum :))

- We DO NOT refund, partial or full, for buyer mistreatment/damage of vintage items or incidents related to cleaning. We are not responsible if the buyer damages the item after receiving it. We describe shop items as accurately as possible and advise re expectations in our policies - vintage items are meant to be worn with care as they are older and may be more fragile, etc. - and it is up to buyer discretion on how the item should be cared for upon receiving it. We cannot predict how a vintage item will wear and will not accept returns if an item becomes damaged after it has been received by the buyer. No Guarantees, No Warranties expressed or implied!!

- The Seller has disclosed her Fair Professional Evaluation of item condition in each listing. Vintage items may not be returned for difference of opinion regarding condition. Seller is the expert professional opinion in the case of all judgement calls.

- In general, our vintage items are in excellent vintage condition, pre-owned and gently used.

- Item descriptions include disclosure of any flaws, tears, stains, etc.

- Although we do our best to note any major flaw that we find, we may miss trivial ones or ones that are characteristic of garments of a particular age and era.

- Please keep your expectations realistic: Listings will always indicate any major flaws or blemishes, but will not always mention small flaws - things such as pin-sized holes, general wash wear, slight fades, loose threads, pinpoint sized spots, sticky zippers, slight seam separation, missing hooks and/or eyes, etc. and other standard signs of prior wear or age WILL NOT necessarily be noted in the item listing.

- Collateral issues such as the smaller stains attached to larger noted flaws i.e., a larger stain of the same character, WILL NOT necessarily be noted or elaborated upon as advice given to remedy the noted issue will apply to all.

- There are NO return exceptions for items with minor wear or specially noted flaws and their collateral issues.

- An item must be Demonstrated to have been GROSSLY misrepresented in the listing for us to consider any exception to shop policy. And, please remember: Seller has disclosed fair professional evaluation of garment condition. Garments may not be returned for difference of opinion regarding condition OR buyer damage after the fact.

-In the case of a policy exception, any and all shipping costs will be the buyer's responsibility in any and all directions. Shipping directions must be exactly followed or the exception to policy offer will be rendered null and void. Shipping must ALWAYS have a Tracking Number.

- There are NO REFUNDS/RETURNS for color disparities - the color display on each computer varies so please consider the possible color/contrast differences in your computer monitor calibration.

- Please CHECK YOUR MEASUREMENTS carefully as returns and exchanges will NEVER be accepted on the basis of fit as all the item measurements are provided in the listing.
Please note our sizing methods:
- All items are laid flat and measured in inches.
- Where possible, descriptions will include an "Estimated Contemporary Size" or "Fits as" suggestion.

- If there is a particular non-standard measurement that you need before purchase then please convo me and I'll be happy to provide it.
To ensure your sizing is accurate, measure one of your favorite pieces of clothing using the chart below, a tailor's tape and compare before buying:

Bust - armpit to armpit
Waist - from smallest points, measured around
Hip - from widest points, measured around
Sleeve - from armpit to hem
Length - from shoulder seam to hem
Shoulder - from seam to seam

Shoe Measurements:

Heel-to-toe measurements are taken on the inside of the shoe.
Width measurements are taken at the ball's widest point, on the outside bottom of the shoe.

**ALL FOOTWEAR is Sold As-Is and Final Sale: Vintage shoes should be worn with care.
Older shoes are best used for going out to an event or party, i.e. standing around, but probably not the best choice for every day footwear.
*Festival fans - do not hike or walk long distances on uneven ground in vintage platforms - change when you get there!!
Rubber, foam, leather, wood and glue may deteriorate after 20 years. Materials can appear to be in great shape and sturdy, but they can also be unpredictable which is why we do not guarantee vintage shoes or take returns.
The type of glue/rubber/foam materials used for the soles/platforms is unknowable as many brands are no longer manufactured or have radically changed materials and production methods. This is our best advice for vintage footwear and it is left to buyer discretion on how to wear/care for your shoes.
We describe our stock as accurately as possible, but please be advised we cannot guarantee the longevity of your purchased item(s).

-------------------------------------------

Refunds - Regarding Artwork:

If the artwork you received is not as you expected, please explain and I will be happy to refund the price of the print. As soon as I have received the item back in the condition in which it left my studio, I will refund the cost of the print to the buyer's Paypal account.

Note: Shipping costs are non-refundable.
