Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
- Other Method
*NOTE - Please note that the "Other" payment option is only available with prior arrangement (eg. when you are picking up the item locally, or when we have an agreed layaway).
I'm happy to reserve an item for up to 3 days. Just send me a message! To reserve an item for more than 3 days, a non-refundable 20% deposit will be required.
Layaway payment in instalments is available on items over 100 USD (please message me to discuss your payment schedule options).
I ship from Dublin, Ireland using the Irish An Post. The default post option for items over 20 USD is Registered Post (with delivery confirmation and tracking depending on destination), for items under 20 USD the default option is Standard Post (without tracking or delivery confirmation).
If you'd like to change your item's shipping option, or to inquire about expedited shipping to make sure that the package gets to you before a certain date, please contact me for recommendations and quotes.
*Some items over 300 USD may be set to ship on the more expensive Courier Post option to include insurance; please always refer to the shipping info section on the particular listing for the most accurate description.
Shipping costs are estimated based on information from the Irish An Post, plus 0.50 USD packing and handling fee. I refund shipping overages after currency conversion and Paypal/Direct Checkout fees. If the actual shipping cost exceeds the estimate, you won't be charged any extra.
All purchases are shipped within 3 working days of receiving the payment.
ESTIMATED shipping transit time (with default Registered Post) are as follows:
Within Ireland: next working day
UK and Within the European Union: 3 - 5 working days
US, Canada, and Australia: 6 - 9 working days
Rest of the world: 6-11 working days
Transit times for Standard Post are usually similar.
*NOTE - Delivery dates are ESTIMATES as given by the post office and are subject to postal conditions that may cause delay, which are beyond my control. For guaranteed delivery dates, please contact me for Express or Courier upgrades (I will get back to you within 24 hours, and often sooner!).
For European Union Customers:
There will be no charges from your country's customs if you live in the EU.
For US customers:
If your purchase is under 200 USD, there will not be any customs charges according to regulation.
More info here:
And from experience I would say that if you package is arriving through the Irish An Post standard or registered post, no customs charges will incur for personal items valued over 200 USD either.
For customers outside the European Union and United States:
If you live outside of the EU and the United States, your country's customs may issue a charge to you for the package based on the item's value. Please let me know if you have concerns about possible customs charges, and I may be able to look up your country's regulations for importing goods from the European Union.

Additional policies and FAQs
All Pretty Bones Jefferson vintage items are authentic dating from at least 20 years ago. Additional photos are always available by request.
If at any time you find that I have misrepresented an item, please don't hesitate to let me know.
READY TO WEAR
All my clothing items, unless otherwise stated have been thoroughly mended (if needed) and laundered or dry cleaned, and are ready to wear.
MEASUREMENTS AND FIT
Please note that vintage clothes size codes could be different from modern ones, so please check carefully the actual measurements provided in the listings to ensure the fitting of the clothing. The best way to determine the fit is to compare the measurements with your actual body measurements (with undergarments on). Any piece of clothing of a similar cut that you already own would also be a good reference. All the measurements are taken with the garment lying flat, and are doubled where appropriate (such as bust, waist, and hip).
I use ASOS's size chart as a reference for the sizing system (XS, Small, Medium, Large, XL etc.): @http://www.asos.com/infopages/SizeGuide/pgesizechart.aspx
I try my best to represent the actual colours of the items in the photographs and descriptions, however variances may exist and colours also differ on different computer screens (my computer screen has been calibrated to match print results as closely as possible).
