About

Vintage Stories' Story (see more on our blog: http://truevintagestories.blogspot.com/ )

Hey, there! Vintage Stories (called LittleVintageStories here; TrueVintageStories for our blog) is what happens when an aesthetically obsessive poet puts together a cyber vintage boutique for vintage fanatics of all ages. Frequently stocked departments include classic clothing/garments such as well-made tops, dresses, lingerie, sweaters... useful, timeless basics! Also, wonderful and/or rare printed matter, bohemian finds, scouting/uniforms, gift-worthy accessories, costume/upcycle pieces, & craveable art/home/decor (often midcentury or Asian). We're passionate about the natural environment; aiming for a small, while stylish footprint that still allows us to have fun sending things through the mail. We've been sending things through the mail since the days of fanzine/flyer & holiday card exchanges that really helped keep the arts, activists, family & community together. We put on a mail art show in San Diego once. So, yeah, we have experience doing this, along w/ receiving training from specialty record/book & department stores, bitd. For more about Vintage Stories' policies/services, please scroll down for our FAQs!
********************************************************
FAQs/How We Roll:
* Our Shipping - aims to rival or top 'big box store' delivery times (items ordered by 1:30 pm often shipped same day)
* Recycling - We use clean secondhand materials for shipping
* Packaging/presentation - Vintage Story (of some kind) notes, with some sort of vintage and/or gift paper - paper sometimes left off free ship items - to be sure of it, choose 'Expedited/Priority' shipping & include a note on the Checkout pg - thanks!
* Returns - If due to our significant (not a wee thing) error or postal misshap, returns are accepted promptly/cheerfully (photos requested for the latter). Exchanges/store credit available for most other items. Talk to us/share a joke/carry on/make it work :)
* Prices: If you're getting more than one item, we're happy to discuss reasonable savings (listings w/ built-in savings for multiples/variations aren't applicable) - let's do this!
*Holds/reserves: Up to three weeks w/ modest deposit
