(March, 2019)

As a historical costumer and antique/vintage collector, I have always been deep in fashion and jewellery from bygone times, and I love re-homing them through this shop. Not only do these beautiful objects deserve to be cared for and lovingly used, during the current times of mass produced non-recyclable goods and disposable fashion, I believe it's important for each of us to do our bit and buy "old" whenever possible.

Sometimes it's hard to believe that I've had my shop here since 2012, but time flies when one is in good company. No matter how much other obligations have kept me occupied and busy, I always return to the shop which feels like home. During 2017 and 2018 I made the difficult decision to commit to a major women's rights political campaign in Ireland (which we won!), and now after some recovery time, I've re-opened my shop with a new name (formerly "Pretty Bones Jefferson"), to reflect the growth that I've experienced during my time away. Currently offering "smalls", namely vintage jewellery and accessory items, but I will be adding the vintage clothes back in as soon as I get back into ironing mountains of garments...

Hope you find something in my shop today, and if you have any questions or requests please don't hesitate to drop me a message. Also please don't forget to favourite the shop if you like anything and would like to return. :)

• Items must be returned in the same condition as they were received. I cannot accept for return any item that has been worn, laundered, or damaged after the customer has received it; so if you discover any issues after opening the package, please get in touch before taking any action.

• The buyer will bear all shipping costs (initial shipping and return shipping) and VAT/customs charges (if any), unless I have grossly misrepresented an item.

• Returns must be shipped using trackable postal service, as I must receive the returned item before issuing any refund.

Please be aware that vintage and antique items are often pre-used and therefore may have imperfections both from use and impact of time, and some may also be fragile. I strive to provide detailed and accurate information, including my best estimates for issues and care requirements. Please do check all the photos and descriptions, and ask freely before your purchase.
Payment
Accepting all major credit and debit cards, Paypal, and Etsy Gift Card.

*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 80 USD (please message me to discuss your payment schedule options).
Shipping
SHIPPING OPTIONS:
I ship from Dublin, Ireland using the national Irish An Post service. The default post option for items over 50 USD is Registered Post (with delivery confirmation and tracking depending on destination, as well some insurance cover), for items under 50 USD the default option is Standard Post (without tracking or delivery confirmation).
If you'd like to change your item's shipping option (and can't find a shipping upgrade during checkout), 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 COST:
Shipping costs are estimated based on information from Irish An Post, plus up to 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 and it will be my responsibility to bear the cost.

SHIPPING TIME:
All purchases are shipped within 2 working days of receiving the payment.
ESTIMATED shipping transit time (on Standard or Registered Post) are as follows according to Irish An Post:
Within Ireland: 1-2 working days
UK: 2-3 working days
EU: 3-5 working days
Europe outside EU: 5-9 days
US, Canada, and Australia: 5-7 working days
Rest of the world: 5-9 working days

*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!).

CUSTOMS CLEARANCE:
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 it seems to me that packages valued at over 200 USD arriving through the Irish An Post Standard or Registered Post haven't been charged import fees 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
VINTAGE GUARANTEE
All my vintage items are authentic true vintage dating from at least 20 years ago. My antique items are around or over 100 years old to the best of my knowledge.
If at any time you find that I have misrepresented an item, please don't hesitate to let me know, and I would appreciate any corrections!

GARMENT MEASUREMENTS AND FIT
Please note that vintage clothes size codes can be different from modern ones, so please check carefully the actual measurements provided in the listings. The best way to determine the fit is to compare the measurements with your actual body measurements with foundation garments 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 garments lying flat, and are doubled where appropriate (such as bust, waist, and hip).

I use ASOS's size chart as a reference for the modern sizing system (XS, Small, Medium, Large, XL etc.): http://www.asos.com/infopages/SizeGuide/pgesizechart.aspx

COLOURS
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).
