About

Living with our history and loving it

I am a stay at home Mom with 4 children, this is a busy life! I have always loved vintage, worn vintage and had lots of old and historical things around. I believe they have a soul and a story to tell. When my children started getting older (and my house was crammed to the very outermost corners), I began to wonder if I could make a business out of my love and passion, this shop is a part of that.

I have been buying, squirreling away antiques and vintage clothing for as long as I can remember, my house is full of it (as I mentioned)! I started out selling on Ebay, but it really wasn’t for me, I found Etsy and love it here!

In the spring of 2011 I took it a bit further and opened a shop locally near where I live, I have my shop in a small space with approximately 30 vendors. It is a wonderful and fun place to be and adds to my online pursuits. I often post photos of what is currently in our B&M shop on our facebook page, check it out!

Besides just being cool, vintage and antiques are a connection to our past, I believe it is important to preserve this and not forget. There are wonderful things and not so wonderful, but we should learn from all of it and never forget. This is why I do what I do.

I have been told since I was a little girl that I was born at the wrong time, I have always loved the old, worn, used and classic and carry that through to my life now. I look for the best of the best, I do try my very best to describe everything I sell accurately and to the best of my knowledge. I do not sell anything I would not be happy to own myself. Previously I sold on Ebay for many years, but now sell exclusively on Etsy and some other chosen vintage only venues. Also, if you are local, we have a shop in Phoenix, AZ inside Zinnias at Melrose. I do add in my own modern and handmade touches occasionally, take a peek.

Please see my story page for a graphic on how I measure and a condition chart that I use to rate clothing here https://www.etsy.com/your/shops/RubyForestVintage/story

Payment
I will only ship to your registered Paypal address, please make sure it is correct before making payment. I ship within 3-5 days of purchase, faster if I can, please let me know if you need something speedy quick and I will make it happen.

A note on Customs, customers are responsible for knowing all customs, duties and taxes that may be charged by their country, I do not know this information, I am not responsible for this cost, please do not ask me to pay this for you or tell me you were not aware of these costs. I mark customs forms appropriately according to the merchandise being shipped with an accurate value which is the price paid. This is not a gift, please do not ask me to break the law.
Shipping
I generally ship via USPS, but sometimes for large or heavy items use UPS or FED EX, even DHL, if you have a preference, I am happy to take that into consideration. I am not responsible for the time that shipping takes once the item leaves my hands and can not make promises on the shipping company’s behalf.
Refunds and Exchanges
I do not do refunds as a general rule, this is vintage, it is as is and described accurately, if there is an issue, please contact me within 24 hours of receipt to discuss, after that time, consider the sale complete. I never refund without a return under any circumstances.

I will not accept returns due to fit issues or buyer remorse. Actual measurements of all clothes are provided in every ad and you should compare to your own similar garment (not your body measurements) and allow room to move, this is up to you to confirm. If item is altered or tags removed, I can not accept a return under any circumstances. Also, returns must be posted within seven days of receipt, buyer pays shipping charges, I will need the confirmation numbers for the shipping and a 20% restocking fee will apply.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am happy to reserve an item for you, and will “hold” until the day we agree, if you do not purchase the item, the “hold” will be removed and the item will be available again to the general public.

I do not smoke, but do have dogs, they do not wear the vintage, but you should probably consider that everything needs cleaning upon arrival. I also do not usually know each item’s previous life. I can not guarantee any garment against damage from mishandling or cleaning. Vintage garments are a part of history, they should be handled, worn and cleaned with care. I generally take many more photos of each piece than can be shown on Etsy, if you would like to see more photos, please let me know.
