Jessica Labowski of Start Talking Vintage: Jessica is a 24-year old recent college graduate who has developed a passion for all things vintage and the rich history they carry. She enjoys treasure hunting for historic beauties at estate sales, crafting, sewing and DIY projects (especially those that upcycle vintage items and give then new, modern appeal!)

I accept PayPal and all major credit cards.
Please only click the "other" payment option if I have instructed you to do so.

Connecticut sales tax charged by law for in-state purchases.
Shipping
SHIPPING
Please contact me if you need your item rushed.
If you feel there is an issue with shipping charges, please ask us in advance of purchase so that you have all information needed to make your purchasing decision. If you require an alternate form of shipment (UPS, FedEx, etc.) please let me know in advance and I will obtain a quote. I do not add signature confirmation or insurance for every package. If you would like to add signature confirmation with package tracking or insurance to your order, please let us know in advance. Shipping charges will be adjusted to include these optional items or shipment via an alternate carrier at your request.For a small additional fee, usually around $2.10 USD-$4.00 USD, I will purchase shipping insurance on your item- this protects it in case it gets damaged/lost during postal delivery. I will only do so if you ask before I ship the item.

I pack with new and/or recycled materials, including boxes, newspaper, bubble wrap, and biodegradable packaging film. I attempt to be as eco-friendly as possible all while maintaining an efficiently packaged shipment.

Invoices (receipts) are only included when shipping internationally to cut down on paper-waste. To view your invoice, please go to the "purchase" section of your account, where you can print a copy of the receipt if needed.

COST OF SHIPPING
I will ship to the U.S. using USPS Priority Mail with a tracking code or First Class mail, and when it is more economical, I may use Parcel Post. (Let me know if you have a preference). Books are shipped through USPS Media Mail. I will ship to Canada using USPS International Priority Mail. For other areas, please contact me for postage rates prior to purchase. I will then revise the listing for you to include your country.

All shipping excesses of $2.00 or more will be refunded to you.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING/CUSTOMS FEES
International orders are gladly accepted. I mark all items with product values; customs charges (if applied) are the responsibility of the buyer. Please provide a telephone number to be used with international shipping labels. International First Class shipping times can vary greatly - usually anywhere from 6 days to 30 days. Priority International shipping times are posted by USPS as 6-10 days typically. I am happy to adjust your order for International Priority - just let me know in advance and I will make posting adjustments for you and bill the balance due.

International shipments may be subject to taxes; customs and other taxes are the responsibility of the purchaser. I will claim the value of your package on the customs declaration form as "merchandise". My prices do NOT include any import duty and GST/VAT assessed. Please contact your local customs office to determine in advance whether your items are subject to import duty or GST/VAT.

This shop adheres to all legal, foreign shipping regulations. All customs fees are the sole responsibility of the buyer. International shipments may be subject to taxes; customs and other taxes are the responsibility of the purchaser. We will claim the value of your package on the customs declaration form as "merchandise".


DAMAGE DURING TRANSIT:
Start Talking Vintage is not responsible for damage during transit. I pack my items to the best of my ability to ensure that they will be safe, but sometimes accidents in transit do happen. If you receive an item that is damaged you are responsible to make a claim to the shipping carrier and I will do everything needed to help if contacted. NO refunds will be made for damages made during transit.
Refunds and Exchanges
RETURNS
I do my very best to represent all items accurately and thoroughly. Refunds are issued only if an item has been grossly misrepresented on my part. If you are interested in an item, but feel you need more information or photos, please let me know! I am happy to answer any questions about an item or provide additional photos.

I am not responsible for damages or losses due to shipping. (If you would like me to insure your item with the postal service to protect from damage or loss, please do so before I ship your item. It is an additional fee for you). Packages will be safely wrapped to protect your purchase.

Because I cannot purchase delivery confirmation for international orders, I do NOT accept returns or issue refunds to customers outside the U.S.

I will only refund the items original cost, you will still pay both ways of shipping fees. Please contact me and we can work something out.
Additional policies and FAQs
CONDITION
Please keep in mind that the item you are purchasing is vintage, so it may show some slight signs of wear and tear. Items are in good vintage condition and without flaws unless otherwise described, however, some small flaws might go unnoticed. Even the most loved and cared for item can show signs of use. Please inspect the pictures closely. Items are vintage and therefore mostly used and never are claimed to be perfect. Expect imperfections and character!
