This blouse is in new condition, and the cotton is beautiful quality. It fits into my wardrobe really well and I am wearing it regularly.
This jacket perfectly matches the skirt I wanted it to go with. Thanks very much!!
I love the European styling of this two-piece dress. I am able to use the two pieces effectively to mix and match. Thanks very much!!

Accepted payment methods
FOR VINTAGE ITEMS: Payment is due at time of purchase - PayPal only. If you wish to buy an item but are not able to make the purchase right away, I can put the item on Reserve for you for 48 hours (please see below the RESERVE Policy).
FOR DIGITAL IMAGES: Payment is due at time of purchase - PayPal only. Thank you.
I have the utmost respect for the privacy of customers. Please know that all info collected from you (address and telephone number) is used to process your order only. At no time is any of your information shared with a third party. The e-mail address is used only to send shipment updates and seasonal updates. Should you not wish to receive any updates after you have made your purchase, please notify me and I will promptly remove your mail from our customer base.
RESERVE policy - Please contact me through ETSY Conversation if you wish to have an item reserved for you. I will reserve an item for 48 hours for buyers who intend on purchasing it within that time frame. After that time it goes back up as a regular listing.
CANCEL policy for VINTAGE ITEMS - If you click to buy and then change your mind, I'll simply cancel the purchase. Please notify me within one day about this change.
COMBINED SHIPPING - If you're considering buying more than one item, should your purchase fit into one package weighing less than 1 kilogram then the second item could have zero shipping costs. After the package is shipped I will notify you with the exact shipping cost (upon request, I can send a scan of the receipt), and will refund any extra amount of money paid by you at the moment of purchase.
The item will be shipped within three to five working days from clearance of payment. I will inform you immediately after I have shipped your item. It can take up to one week for a PayPal payment to be transferred to my bank account, so this may delay the approximated time for the arrival of your package. Shipping time may take up to one week within Romania, between 1-2 weeks within the European Union, and up to 4 weeks to other international destinations. Should you need the item by a certain time, we can try to find a solution for an express shipping option. Please understand that I cannot offer a precise arrival time, nor be held liable for any delay, particularly when several different cross border postal authorities are concerned.
The Romanian Post usually ships Priority post (which is the most used option, given that the non-priority post is slower and not much cheaper). In the unlikely event that your item is mislaid in transit, I will assist in the claim process by providing proof of postage. I do my best to make sure that the package arrives safely to you, but I cannot be responsible for lost or damaged items once they are on the postal route.
Should you wish to have your package insured, please inquire with your local post firsthand - clerks at my post office tell me that not all countries accept insured packages from my country, so it would be best if you checked it out first. Also, there are specific obligations for buyers regarding the damaging of an insured item: if an insured item arrives damaged, the buyer has to take the damaged item and packaging to the postal department and file the damage claim (based on the information that the Seller provides), so that reimbursement can be forwarded to the Seller, then assist to file the insurance claim. Only after those procedures will refunds for damaged items be made to the Buyer.
If you receive a damaged item or package, please contact me immediately to solve the issue. Photographs may be requested, and the item(s) and packaging must be saved for inspection by the delivery company.
I will ship to the address provided by Etsy and PayPal, so please make sure it is correct. If you would like an item shipped to a different address, please contact me.
With certain valuable items, special shipping may be required. Also, please inquire with your local customs for any restriction upon such items (like old books).
Packages will not be marked as a gift. The price on the package will be the actual price of the item (shipping not included). Thank you for your understanding.
International orders may be subject to custom fees or certain restrictions, so please inquiry at customs in your country. These are not in my control and I have no way of knowing when or if they will be imposed, or how much they might be. As far as I know, there are no taxes inside the European Union, but there are custom fees for all countries outside the EU. Some countries may have quotas for textiles, or may apply restrictions to import of lavender. International customers are responsible for any duty fees incurred at customs in their country, or may find their package is blocked at customs due to certain restriction, so please make sure you are familiar with your country's duty fees before buying. For information you should contact your local customs agency.
SHIPPING FOR DIGITAL Images/Altered Art:
Your digital files will be sent via email to your PayPal email address on file, normally within 24 hours of purchase. Items will be marked "shipped" after they are emailed.
Refunds and Exchanges
Refunds are NOT AVAILABLE for Digital Images/Graphics Creations/Altered Art. Thank you for your understanding!
Additional policies and FAQs
FOR VINTAGE ITEMS: The vintage items here are more than twenty years old. I check each of them thoroughly and describe them to the best of my knowledge, both in photography and description. I try to signal all imperfections in the description. Yet, vintage clothing, as well as any old items (like old books), can be more fragile than new objects, and should be expected to have some wear and age issues, which may include the "old paper" smell and such, or minor signs of use which are standard in vintage clothing. Please keep that in mind when ordering. The items listed here are one of a kind and cannot be replaced with substitute items. Please take your time to look at the images and read the description before placing an order.
My house is smoke-free, and so are all the items in my shop. Also, we don't keep any pets. This is not a small business. The objects I sell are personal.
GIFT ORDERS: If you intend your purchase to be a gift, please let me know in "Notes to Seller" your desired sentiments, and I will add a complimentary handwritten gift card with your shipment. Please specify the address where you want your purchase shipped, otherwise it will be shipped to your PayPal address.
