Sweet little spacer beads. I saw a very expensive bracelet in a catalog I wanted to copy that used similar beads. I knew there would be an etsy vendor who had them and you popped up. Very happy to have found you!

Love these! I have already used them in several bracelets. They add such a nice contrast to the superduos.

About

Welcome to StarPower99, with more than 40 years experience in antique and vintage sales.

In addition to conducting local estate sales, we purchase local home, church and business estates. We're often contacted to conduct sales or purchase items from those in our community moving or simply wishing to downsize.

We also shop estate sales conducted by others in order to bring you antique, vintage and rare finds of all kinds:

coins and currency, silverplate flatware, furniture hardware, jewelry and jewelry making supplies, old photos and paper ephemera, home textiles and anything else old, fun, interesting and sometimes surprising that turns up.

We strive to provide you with a pleasant shopping and buying experience, and pride ourselves on quick communication, responsive customer service and prompt shipping, as well as safe, secure packaging of your purchases. We are more than happy to answer any questions or send additional photos of an item upon request.

We ship to both the U.S. and internationally within 24-48 hours of purchase. Combined shipping rates apply to multiple item purchases and we refund over estimation of shipping charges in excess of $1.00 USD.

Please note that for various reasons, some items are listed for U.S. sale only. However, if you live outside the U.S. and wish to purchase one of them, please contact us. Barring any restrictions on import of the item into your country, we're happy to provide you a shipping quote.

Welcome to StarPower99, specializing in antique, vintage and rare finds of all kinds: coins and currency, silverplate flatware, furniture hardware, jewelry and jewelry making supplies, old photos and paper ephemera, home textiles and anything else old, fun and interesting that turns up.

We want you to have a pleasant shopping and buying experience, and pride ourselves on quick communication, responsive customer service and prompt shipping, as well as safe, secure packaging of your purchases. We combine shipping on multiple item purchases and refund over estimation of shipping charges in excess of $1.00 USD.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover and AMEX, as well as Etsy Gift Cards, through Etsy's Direct Checkout system.

PayPal is also accepted. If you wish to utilize PayPal but do not have an account, you may use one of the major credit cards listed above as a guest without signing up for one.

Multiple payments/layaway plans are not possible as they are against the policies of PayPal. However on higher priced items we are more than happy to place a reserve on a listing for you for a limited, agreed upon time.
Shipping
Please make sure the shipping address is correct on your account and the order, before submitting. If using Etsy direct checkout this would be the address on your Etsy account. If using PayPal, on your PayPal account. We are not responsible for lost shipments due to incorrect address information provided.

If your item is requested to be shipped to an alternate address, for both our protection, it is required that the alternate address must be added to your Etsy and PayPal accounts prior to ordering and selected at checkout/payment processing. Requests to ship to an alternate address without this being done cannot be accepted.

If you've already paid for your purchase and wish to either request an alternate shipping address or notice an error in the shipping address on your receipt, please contact us IMMEDIATELY so we can arrange to cancel the order so you can repurchase using the correct procedure. Once a purchase has been shipped, obviously changes or corrections are impossible.

Items/orders of greater value require signature confirmation at delivery. Please use an address where this is possible. This is a PayPal requirement for all orders of $250 or more, and may be a shop requirement on items of lesser value depending on the amount and/or the item purchased regardless of which payment processor is used.

All items are securely packaged and shipped via USPS First Class Domestic and International (and occasionally via USPS Priority Service on certain items.) Tracking is included on Domestic shipments, insurance is included depending on the item. Tracking is included on International shipments dependent upon USPS agreement with your country; insurance is included dependent upon the item. All parcels are shipped 24-48 hours (weekends and legal holidays excluded.)

We are only responsible for fulfilling our promised shipping date and cannot guarantee a delivery date. Due to delays in some areas of the country because of USPS facility closings (82 additional facilities in round two of closings in Jan. 2015), please allow extra time than the USPS website or tracking estimates to receive your shipment.

Also please know that, while we include tracking on domestic shipments, the USPS system is not currently always being updated with this information in a timely manner, sometimes not until delivery status has been scanned.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS:

Not all of our item listings have shipping integrated outside of the U.S, and Canada. If you wish to purchase one of these items, please contact us. We are more than happy to provide you a shipping quote, barring any customs restrictions for shipping it into your country.

While this is not always the case, due to unexpected and unpredictable delays in customs that are beyond anyone's control, please allow as much as 6 weeks transit time for you order.

We are legally responsible to complete the customs forms truthfully and accurately with regard to the value of your purchase. It is illegal for them to be marked as gifts or to claim a lesser value.

VAT, import taxes, customs, duties or other import fees may apply to your purchase, but are NOT included in the item prices or shipping fees. We are not legally able to collect or remit them as they are calculated and imposed by your country at the time of delivery. In order to find out the applicable fees for your country, and the value threshold at which they apply, please search the internet for the customs website for your country to find the applicable information.

Failure to collect your shipment from your postal service, resulting in it being returned to us, will cause excessive delays in refund as they are not shipped back by the most expeditious route. Refund will include only the purchase price of the item, not the cost to ship it to you. If you missed the pickup of your item and still wish to have it, you will be billed the shipping rate to send it again.

UK RESIDENTS: VAT is applied by your government upon arrival of your parcel for all purchases of £15 and up (it is not included in the item price as it is locally.) Additionally, the Royal Post adds an £8 processing fee. When you receive notice that your parcel has been accepted by Royal Mail, the notification is NOT for additional postage due as is sometimes indicated. It is for the above fees.
Refunds and Exchanges
Now for all the legal requirements we both dislike, but are necessary. You will find that this information complies with the requirements of the payment processors.

Please understand that antique and vintage items many times not in “like new” condition. They will sometimes bear the scars of age. All items are examined before listing to make sure these are not excessive or detrimental to the integrity of the items. Some will contain very minor flaws (small scratches, dents, fleabites on glass, etc.), that we endeavor to mention in the descriptions, that will appear highly magnified in the photos but are not significant when seen in person.

If you are unhappy with your purchase for any reason, we require contact within 7 days of receipt to arrange a return for refund. Items must be in the exact condition they were when we sent them, securely repackaged and posted back to me (with tracking and insurance depending on the item, your location, etc.) within 5 days of agreement. All return postage fees are your responsibility. Your refund will be for the purchase price, less original shipping costs. (See exceptions for lost or damaged shipments listed below.)

EXCEPTIONS TO ABOVE:

If your item was damaged in shipping, for insurance purposes, photos of both the item and the packaging are required to authorize the return. Please hold onto both until you receive further instructions, as in some cases USPS may require you to take both to your local post office for inspection before returning them to us. Additionally the insurer will require a signed, sworn affidavit. Failure to do so will invalidate cause for refund.

If for any reason your item is lost in the post (please allow 30 days for domestic per USPS. For international, please see the above shipping note regarding customs delays), your item is damaged in transit, or the wrong item was sent, your refund will include both the original and return shipping fees. In some cases of lost or damaged shipments, the insurer will require a signed, sworn affidavit. Failure to do so will invalidate cause for refund.

Refunds are issued within 3-5 business days from the time I receive either the returned item (in the exact condition we sent it) and/or notice that the signed affidavit has been received by the insurer for lost or damaged items.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENTS:

ALL RETURN PARCELS MUST BE MARKED "RETURN MERCHANDISE".

If you paid VAT, import taxes, customs or duties fees on a returned item, you must apply through your own country's government to receive refund of these fees.
Additional policies and FAQs
We are more than happy to answer any questions or send additional photos of an item upon request. All communications are answered promptly, usually within the same day, but please allow 24 hours for a reply. (We am located in Utica, NY, USA, which is in the Eastern Time Zone. Please make note of any time zone differences.)

Please communicate with us regarding any questions or with issues with your purchase only through the Etsy Convo system. This is required by Etsy in order for certain information to be binding and upheld.
