Announcement   Vintage haberdashery, linen and fabric by Petits Tresors Retros from France !
I open our grandmas' linen cupboard and sewing box for you. Here you'll find vintage ribbons, buttons, bobbins of thread, napkins, tea-towels, doilies, lace, embroidered linen and fabric.

All these items were lovingly hunted from flea markets in western France, from Bordeaux to Brest.

I also create some special items, always from up-cycled materials : pouches, wall organizers and for Christmas, Advent calendars and ornaments.

I ship worldwide.

About

A passion for vintage linen and haberdashery

As soon as spring is here, I can't help jumping on my bike to hunt the many "vide-greniers" (flea markets) around on saturdays and sundays. No way I'll stay in my bed longer on week-ends when the sun is shinning !

There, I find all sorts of objects that make me happy but one type of item is always sure to get my attention : everything related to vintage textiles.

I learned how to sew from an early age.At school to begin with. Believe it or not, you still learned how to sew in french schools a little bit more than thirty years ago ! But mainly from my grand-mother who had an angel's patience with my clumsy little fingers. I keep precious memories from these moments spent at her side. Rummaging in a sewing box was like diving into a treasure chest !

I relive a little bit of these blissful moments when I visit the weekend flea markets. I love the beautiful labels, the delicate little sewing instruments and the yesterday's shades fabrics.

Welcome to “Petits Trésors Rétros”.
I sell antique linen, haberdashery and cloth as well as my creations.
Vintage objects are rarely perfect; this is part of their charm. Many may be one of a kind.
I will try to photograph and describe each item as accurately as possible, but in case you would like more details, please feel free to ask as many questions as you like (regarding size, sales conditions, state of the object) before purchasing.
You need more information or more photos? Just send me a conversation . I like to have “happy” customers.

Thanks a lot for visiting !

Shipping
PLEASE REMEMBER THAT I am SHIPPING FROM FRANCE, the trip usually takes 5 to 15 days, sometimes a bit more. For Europe, expect 3 to 10 days.
I ship by the less costly French Priority Mail. This service DOES NOT INCLUDE insurance or tracking.

I will always inform you immediately after I have shipped your item.
I will send your items maximum 2 business days after I received your payment.

All TAXES AND CUSTOM that may be applied upon arrival into your country are the responsibility of the purchaser.

My aim is to get your item to you safely and within good time. I often use recycled (clean) packaging materials.

Please note that I will always ship to the address given by Etsy.
If you want me to ship to a different address, please indicate this in your Message to Seller. I am not responsible for packages that are undelivered because the address given by the buyer through Etsy is inaccurate.
If the item is a gift and you would like it to go directly to the recipient, please let me know. I hope to offer a giftwrap service in the near future. In the meantime I am happy to work with you on a custom basis. Just send me note with your purchase!

A note on shipping rates:
Shipping from France is expensive that is why I ship by the less costly registered post. If you want insurance, quick distribution and a tracking for your order, please send me a message before making your purchase and I will send you a revised invoice. But please know that is much more expensive.

Postal limits impose a two-kilo maximum (4.5 lbs) weight on regular priority airmail packages. If your purchases exceed two kilos, I will have to divide these up and send them to you in two or more boxes. I will inform you if this is the case for your order.

I do try to be conservative with my shipping costs. If I have overestimated by more than 1.00 €, I will refund the difference, no problem !
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are unhappy with your item, please inform me within a week after date of reception.
You can send it back at your own costs, within a week date of reception, unused and in its original packaging.
At reception, I will refund the item cost via Paypal, minus sending costs.

I always describe things such as they are, I try to be very precise.
I try to describe each item as best as I can, but as you know I am french, so I do apologize for any spelling mistake or word confusion!
