RetroVintage123's Shop Announcement

Remember, I do ship INTERNATIONALLY! Thank you ....

Whether it's a pair of Doc Marten's, Donald Pliner's, or hand-painted cowboy boots and super feminine stiletto heels, my passion is to paint and embellish all types of newer shoes and boots to give you something totally unique! I also love to discover and present vintage shoes and boots as well. Come in and stay awhile!

My mission is to recycle and UPCYCLE for you, me and our little ones. It usually means rescuing something that is well made and in need of a design make-over. This can be simple or complex but it brings to the consumer a high-quality, "rescued" and recycled item so that it is now one-of-a-kind and a great bargain to boot (pun intended). I create all the new design components individually by hand from leather, fabric, lace, vintage jewelry and other fun elements (i.e. PAINT!). It lifts my spirits to bring something from the forgotten bin to the top of the heap again!

COLOR! And, the more the merrier! That's the message from the world of fashion and I say it's about time. Though I am a big fan of black shoes and boots, I also LOVE the brights and you'll see colorful additions often. Thank you to everyone who has visited and supported my shop.

Working with INTERNATIONAL customers is great! Please, just let me know where you are and I will adjust postal charges for INTERNATIONAL sales and shipping. I always go with exact costs charged by the post office. I know international rates have/are going up as well. Please, do not hesitate to convo OR e mail me at lanimay [!at] with questions or suggestions on prices or postal charges or anything else at any time!

It is now possible to insure and track with the new USPS STANDARD POST rate (aka First Class or Parcel Post), so even the POSTAL RATE HIKES are no problem! Just get in touch with me and I can WEIGH each item for lower shipping rates. I have listed shipping based on USPS PRIORITY MAIL which is generally the more expensive option. We can work out a less expensive rate if you get in touch with me.
