Please read the Shipping section below to be aware of shipping to Etsy addresses and/or PayPal addresses.
We use USPS Priority Mail for the majority of shipments in the US; USPS First Class may be used for smaller items (jewelry) and for international shipments.

Shipping Addresses: Please understand that we will ship to the Confirmed Address shown on your PayPal payment. If your PayPal address and the address shown on your Etsy order are different, we will ship to the PayPal address, unless we've been previously contacted.
Refunds and Exchanges
Refunds will be given only when an item doesn't correctly match its description. Please note that we must be contacted within 3 business days of item receipt for a refund to be given. Refunds will not be issued for items that do not fit; therefore, please be sure to read all measurements given before purchasing an item.
Additional policies and FAQs
Special Note about Vintage Clothing, especially shoes: Fabric, rubber, foam, and other materials can degrade over time, which is something you should keep in mind, particularly when buying vintage shoes. We try to describe, to the best of our ability, any imperfections or material degradations we discern in the items we sell. However, we do not have the ability to know how much wear a vintage item can handle before it becomes unwearable.

Sizing: Please be aware that vintage clothing sizing is quite different (aka smaller) from today's sizing system. A vintage 12, for instance, may be closer to an 8 or a 10 by today's standards. Though we give estimates of the current size of items in our descriptions, the only way to tell if an item will fit you properly is to compare the measurements given in the description to those of a similar item that does fit you. Full measurements are provided in all descriptions. (This goes for shoes, too, as they can vary greatly in sizing not just from era to era, but from brand to brand.)

Note that the measurements given are the *garment* measurements, not of the person who will wear it. It is always important to make sure to allow a couple inches for comfortable fit, as straining against vintage fabric is not a good idea (unless it is a fabric with a fair amount of stretch). In other words, if the waist measurement given is 28", your waist should measure 25"-26" for the garment to fit you comfortably.
