Shop policies

Last updated on May 9, 2022
Welcome to the mercantile! My little dream vintage and handmade general store. I so hope you find something that makes you smile. :)

By making a purchase you indicate that you have read, understand & accept my policies.

Enter the shop now:

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
Almost all of my items are vintage and/or upcycled, so will show gentle signs of wear for their age. (That's the character we're looking for, right?!) I make every effort to photograph and thoroughly describe them as accurately as possible. Out of the ordinary defects such as breaks, cracks or missing pieces (not obviously seen in the photos) are disclosed in the item description. But general expected wear because of age is generally not described. Photos are also part of the item description. View & read everything carefully. Everything I sell is sold “as is." As a result, I do not accept returns.

That said, I want you to be pleased with your purchase! So, if for some reason you are not satisfied, please contact me and I''m sure we can work something out.
I accept PayPal payments only. (*Please note that it is NOT required for you to have a Paypal account to make purchases. You can still use your credit/debit card or make an eCheck through Paypal without an account.* You can choose the PayPal Option during checkout. After you submit your order click the "Pay Now" button. On the right hand side of the next page you will see 2 options, the 2nd one is to pay using a Credit or Debit Card WITHOUT having to sign up for a PayPal account. Select paypal NOT "other" to pay by credit card.)

PayPal payments must be made within 24 hours of purchase. Items will only be shipped once payment has gone through. If payment is not immediately received, I will contact you as a reminder. After 4 days, the item will need to be re-listed.
items ship primarily via USPS: First Class, Standard/Parcel, or Priority Mail within 3 business days of cleared payment (excluding weekends and holidays), but sometimes within 24-28 hours.

I will ship items to the address specified on the Etsy invoice unless you have made other arrangements with me at the time of sale.

If you would like your purchase sent as a gift, please let me know and I will include a gift card.

I use recycled packaging materials whenever possible, so while your item will be packaged pretty, the shipping box may not be brand new. Just let me know if you would like to request a new box.

I'm happy to combine items to lower shipping rates. Please contact us with the items that you would like combined and a zip code to your destination.

If you need your package quicker, please just let me know before purchasing and I would be happy to provide shipping costs for a faster shipping method.

Your items will be very carefully packaged to ensure a safe delivery. If you would like to add insurance, tracking or signature confirmation, please let me know before payment. Per Etsy's policies, I cannot be responsible for lost packages.

Please contact me for a shipping quote. Items will be shipped using First Class International mail.
