Refunds and Exchanges
Before you buy, please feel free to ask for additional information on any item in the shop. We are happy to provide whatever info you may need in order to feel comfortable about making a purchase with us. We want to work with you to make the sale process as easy as possible.
All vintage items are sold-as-is. Please carefully read the item description prior to purchase. We do our best to accurately describe the condition of items but please keep in mind that these are used vintage pieces and they can and will have flaws which may be missed when the item is being prepared for sale. Refunds will not be issued for as-is items because a buyer changes their mind about their purchase!
We try to accurately identify the age and make of items being sold but sometimes mistakes may be made in the listing of an item. With unlabeled pieces particularly, it can sometimes be difficult to conclusively identify the age or material. If it is determined a significant error of misrepresentation was made in the item's description then Lost Empire Vintage may accept a return of the item in exchange for a refund.
For damaged items, please provide photographs of the damaged goods and packaging. Due to the potential for fraud, a refund may only be provided upon receipt of proof of damage. Lost Empire Vintage may request that the buyer return the damaged items and packaging in order to receive a refund.
For items lost in transit, we will confirm via delivery tracking that the item was indeed misrouted. If the item cannot be found within a reasonable time, a refund may be given for the missing shipment.
With the exception of orders lost in shipping/transit, the buyer must return the unwanted item in order to receive a refund in order to eliminate the potential for fraud, no exceptions.
If a discount was given for an item, then the buyer will only receive the amount of the discounted price in refund.
