Retrofit is a vintage, retro, antique, designer, upcycled and preowned jewelry and home goods boutique. All the items in retrofit were carefully hand picked by me at estate sales, auctions, flea markets, garage and yard sales and thrift stores in the Philadelphia metropolitan area. I especially like to purchase from worthy charities such as the Salvation Army and Philadelphia's "Thrift For Aids" where all proceeds go to Aids research and all the staff are volunteers. That store is a generally a little higher priced than other thrift stores but the quality of the donations are higher and the cause is important.

All items in Retrofit were previously owned, loved and probably worn and/or used and as such, may or may not have signs of previous use. I do my best to describe the items accurately and to point out the exact condition of every item but on occasion, I may miss something. This is certainly not intentional. I also do my best to research every item I list to try to determine the date the item was manufactured. At times this can be a little difficult, especially with unsigned jewelry that may have been created to look antique or vintage. Once again, if I mistakenly list something from a time period to which it does not belong, it is certainly not intentional. In such cases, if noticed, I would appreciate it being pointed out to me so I can change the time period or remove the listing entirely if the item is not actually vintage.

In the near future, I plan on listing so called "upcycled" items that I create myself. I have acquired a batch of small mirrors and picture frames and plan on creating jeweled frames with old mismatched and broken jewelry parts, in addition to offering my own artwork in the form of paintings, drawings and etchings.

The prices listed on Retrofit items are based on the price I paid for the item, the price the same or similar items are listed for elsewhere, in addition to my time and gas spent in searching for and shopping for the items and my costs for the clean boxes and packaging materials to safely ship the items to you. I do not jack up the price of the postage for additional profit. At times, I may overestimate shipping costs in which event I will issue a shipping overage refund, but trust me on this, most errors in shipping estimates I quote benefit the customer and not me.

Thanks for visiting my shop, hope you find something that tickles your fancy!

Payment
Payment is preferred immediately but expected within 3 days of confirmed purchase, otherwise item will be relisted. We now accept credit card payments through Etsys Direct Checkout in addition to PayPal, checks and US Money Orders.
Shipping
All items will be shipped between 1 and 5 business days of purchase. Larger household items take longer (up to 6 days) than jewelry and small household items due to obtaining safe, secure and appropriate packaging for large fragile items. I am an "over packer" (or so I have been told) and the item arriving in one piece is very important to me so I go above and beyond to make sure I provide a safe and secure box to ship in.

All quoted shipping costs for household items is based on the weight of item from Philadelphia, PA to Washington State. Any and all excess shipping charges for those living closer will be GUARANTEED promptly refunded after the package has been weighed, mailed and the actual shipping costs calculated by and paid to the USPS. This applies ONLY to household items, jewelry will be the flat rate stated in the item description. I do not attempt to make any profit on the shipping charges.
Thanks!
Refunds and Exchanges
1) I will issue a full refund for all items not damaged by the purchaser and returned in the same condition in which it was sent. Any/all items that are returned should be packaged with the same care and in the same manner as it was originally shipped and must be insured. If a returned item is poorly packaged and not insured and gets damaged or lost during return transit, a refund will not be issued.

2) Buyer will pay return shipping costs for items returned at their own discretion for subjective reasons due to no fault of Retrofit Gallery. Please read the listings carefully and make a researched and informed decision before purchasing. Retrofit describes any discernible markings, hallmarks, signatures or defects etc. but can make no guarantees as to the authenticity or reliability of such markings. If the buyer changes their mind, misunderstood the listing, made a mistake, found a better price elsewhere or if the item is not what the buyer expected it to be etc., the buyer must pay for return shipping costs. I will issue a full refund for the cost of the item/s purchased and the original shipping costs but I cannot reimburse the buyer for return shipping and insurance charges.

3) If tracking shows that the USPS has scanned and confirmed the package as having been delivered but no such delivery occurred, I will issue a full refund to the buyer after the USPS Insurance claim has been settled. Adding the cost of Signature Confirmation to the shipping charges (on more costly items) could solve any issues with delivery problems. Please discuss this with me if you wish Signature Confirmation charges added.

4) If an order has been lost or damaged in transit, I will issue a full refund to the buyer after the USPS Insurance claim has been settled.

5) If you live in an area that is noted for packages being stolen from doorsteps or apartment foyers, please take responsibility to make arrangements for its safe acceptance by yourself or a trusted neighbor. If theft is an issue, please inform me and allow me to add Signature Confirmation costs to the shipping for both our benefits.
