About

Latrouvaille translates from French to: The Find

When I retired from the high school classroom, I felt a creative void after 34 years of teenagers keeping me on my toes. As well, after inheriting from parents, in-laws, and 4 children moving out, I considered a vintage shop as a way of downsizing my own home. I already had another Etsy shop (meoneil.etsy.com) and I hoped that linking the two would help. I caught the bug of searching for treasures to share with customers, and being fortunate enough to have taken numerous trips to Asia (after 2 of my children moved to Vietnam and China), many of my finds originated there.
"Latrouvaille" is French for "a find", and living in Quebec, though Anglophone, the name seemed appropriate.

Hello & welcome to my online boutique of whimsical clothing accessories, creative housewares, and generally elegant vintage. As a retired teacher with new found time on my hands, I now find pleasure in passing on to you, interesting items which have been passed down to me, or have outlived their tenure in my downsized home, and treasures collected in years of world travel, much of it in Asia.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Method of payment accepted: Paypal.
Payment should be made immediately following finalizing your etsy order by clicking on the "pay with paypal" button that will direct you to a paypal invoice.
Shipping
Though I live in Canada, I ship most of my orders via USPS. This is because it allows me to charge you much less (even for back to Canada!) for shipping and the time involved is usually less. American orders will always have a tracking number. This service is not available for any other. If you want your parcel insured, you must pay for the added security. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR PACKAGES LOST IN THE MAIL..

Items are packed and shipped out within five business days of payment, but please keep in mind that purchases will be shipped on weekdays only. This delay is because I cannot cross the border to mail, without experiencing customs issues of my own, but I still feel the much faster and less costly shipping is worth the delay to you.
Orders to Canada and overseas take between 1-3 weeks to arrive. U.S. orders are usually within 1 week. In rare situations however,a shipment to Europe and Australia has taken as long as 8 weeks. Please be patient.

AT PERIODS OF THE YEAR WHEN SHIPPING VOLUME IS HIGH, i.e. FROM BLACK FRIDAY ON, please consult the shipping times posted on my main page. This is to avoid the disappointment of late arrival at, for example, Christmas.

At times, I underestimate the cost of shipping. This is my problem and you will not be charged more. At other times, the cost of the shipping estimated is slightly higher than it turned out to be. I am considering these costs as shipping and handling, i.e. the cost of the mailing materials and the cost of gas to get the 19 km. to the American Post Office. Unless the discrepancy is very large, I will not make any shipping adjustments.
Please contact me prior to purchase if you have any questions regarding these shipping arrangements.
You, as buyer, are responsible for any additional customs or duty charges where required, however by my crossing the border, I have automatically saved these fees for American customers (though I must pay them myself).
