CURRANT SHIPPING With the current global situation Australia Post especially is experiencing delays in delivery. We are extremely lucky to have our postal system and they are doing their best to keep up with demand with less staff than normal due to social distancing requirements. Please be advised shipping and deliveries can now be delayed up to 14 business days.

I am still doing two trips a week to the post office as part of my 'essentials' run to get your purchases out as quick as possible as well as Sendle pick ups every two days. After which shipping times are out of my control. In these unprecedented times online shopping is a wonderful option but it is not a time for last minute shopping. My suggestion is to be prepared and purchase well in advance for your item to arrive on time. I thank you for your understanding and patience.

I am currently not taking overseas orders.

Big thank you to my many viewers and customers whether you are visiting for a browse or making a purchase in my shop or any of the beautiful small shops here on Etsy your support for our small business is very much appreciated #standforsmall ..

About RetroandRosesvintage

Sales 1,083
On Etsy since 2013

My obsession for vintage...

I grew up in the 1970s. My mum was a fashion designer and she would often take me to source wonderful fabrics such as "antique" laces, doilies from op shops and travel to source bright saris from India for her wonderful creations. In the 1980s after spending a year travelling and living in Europe I returned to Adelaide and owned my own wool shop on Gouger street 'Skeins' creating and designing patterns and knits from an amazing array of wool that I imported from Europe.

Today, I love to collect! I am a collectaholic! And love anything from vintage fashion and retro collectibles... to beautiful vintage fabrics which I recreate into cushions and upholstered pieces.

'Retro and Roses' is an eclectic mix of vintage treasures. Being brought up in the 70s I have a soft spot for delicate laces, embroidered doilies, soft roses and pretty vintage pieces. Then there is my love for weathered timber, industrial and robust retro pieces as well as my love for colour... retro yellows and oranges, beautiful greens and blues and vibrant red and pink. Add plenty of modern white to tie the collection together and you have the recipe for RetroandRosesvintage.

For me, collecting is not so much about value or trends but more about personal taste. I am a firm believer that if you collect what you love it will inevitably all fit together.

My passion for photography which was once limited to endless shots of my family ( now all grown up) has progressed to still life photography of found treasures for my shop.I am loving this experience of creating something wonderful and hope you will enjoy it too!

Returns and exchanges
I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Returns and exchange details
Generally I will not offer refund on the vintage items featured on Retro and Roses as these items are preloved and wear and tear will be present! Some are so minor that they are difficult to photograph and not every mark can be noted. So please be aware of that when buying vintage.

I do endeavour to represent each item to the best of my ability. Items will be marked as "very good" and "good" vintage condition please read description carefully. Others are listed as 'imperfectly perfect" or "rustic" vintage condition. These items have 'imperfections' that add to the overall vintage charm and character of the piece. Please view photos carefully to get a feel for these item as not every mark can be noted.

To avoid disappointment please consider each item of interest carefully and make an informed decision with the details and photos given in the listing. I am happy to provide additional information on request.

In saying that, if you have ANY concerns please do not hesitate to get in touch with me as ultimately I strive for customer satisfaction and am here to help you!

Please be aware that any and all postage charges are the responsibility of the buyer.
Payment
I accept PayPal, credit cards and gift vouchers through Etsy direct checkout.

I am happy to reserve items for 48 hours. Please make your payment as soon as you are happy and have confirmed your purchase.
Shipping
PLEASE READ LISTINGS in regard to shipping before purchasing. PLEASE NOTE: Etsy only allows for one shipping quote within Australia which makes it quite difficult to quote an exact amount especially with so many variables (depending on the destination, the size of the box and combined postage)! Please contact me with your shipping requirements!

I endeavour to quote the lowest shipping rates which includes the tiniest handling fee for incidentals. Currently I have two options for shipping..

Australia Post (preferred)
* Australian Postal service Australia wide
* recommended and cheaper for smaller parcels and postal satchels
* if not home left if safe to do so or held at Post office
* straight forward if choosing this option
*insurance upgrade available

Sendle
* Courier service with some limitations (destinations)
* recommended and cheaper for larger items (cubed)
* if not home will be left on the 'porch'
* additional communication if choosing this option
*insurance does not apply for items under $100

My first preference is Australia Post but will choose Sendle for larger 'cubed' parcels. Some listings have been set for shipping within ADELAIDE ONLY and others for PICK UP only. Most listings shipping HAS BEEN SET FOR HOBART one of the highest (not the highest) from Adelaide. As well as a separate quote in the listing for the alternative shipping option.

NOTE: to create a listing for "additional postage" AFTER purchase incurs a $1.00 AUD listing fee to cover Etsy commissions and fees applicable on both the shipping and item. So please be sure to contact me prior to purchase if you live in Darwin, the Northern Territory or other remote areas.

I will ship items within 1-3 working days of receiving payment.

I go to great length to make sure your purchase is securely wrapped. I do prefer to use recycled boxes and packaging to keep costs down for me and ultimately you, the customer. Most Australian parcels (with shipping of $7 or more) include tracking. With all this in place please be aware that once your package has been posted it is the responsibility of the buyer if a parcel is lost or damaged.

In most cases, unless clearly specified shipping quoted does not include extra charges for registered or insured parcels. Etsy now has options for insurance upgrade and /or signature on delivery. If you wish please choose these upgrades at checkout.

LETTERS: Australia Post now charges an additional fee of 50c to send your letter or slim parcels within a few days. Without priority paid it can take up to week or more. I have chosen to incorporate this fee into my quote for shipping by letter post so you receive your item as soon as possible (no tracking).

I am very happy to COMBINE POSTAGE for multiple items please contact me if you are interested in several pieces so I can give you a combined shipping quote or alternatively I will refund overpayment of shipping costs of $2 or more back to your paying account. For larger items the shipping costs are usually on the size of the box which means I can often fit an additional appropriate item in the box at little or no extra postage charge making combined shipping a much more economical option.

Items will be sent to your ETSY ADDRESS unless otherwise discussed at time of purchase.

Please contact me regarding INTERNATIONAL shipping costs as I will quote these on an individual basis! Tracking for international parcels is highly recommended and available as an upgrade at an additional cost. Without it the buyer is fully responsible if a parcel is lost in transit as I have no control over shipping once a parcel has been posted. Also consider travel time from Australia is at least 3 weeks if not more. For international buyers please be aware of your countries custom laws, policies, fees, taxes etc as these are the responsibility of the buyer. Retro and Roses cannot be held responsible for any items held by customs.

PICK UP is always welcome to save on shipping costs. I live in the beautiful Adelaide Hills and am happy for visitors on the weekend.

I am happy to work with you on your shipping needs so if you have any questions please ask!
