Vintage clothing is imbued with mystery. Through the years, whenever I have purchased a vintage piece, I have wondered about its ‘story.’ Who owned it? Where was it worn? What was the original owner like? These questions led me to create StoriedVintage.com, a fashion and inspiration blog and Storied Vintage 2, my shop here on Etsy. Combining my passion for vintage fashion with my love of story-telling, my shop offers lovely vintage items, each with its own special story. I invite you to 'live the next chapter!'

About

The Story of Storied Vintage

I have had a fascination with vintage clothing since I first played dress up with clothes my mother and grandmothers gave me. Each piece transported me into another place and time, another story and life. A few of these stories became plays I forced my sisters, cousins and neighbors into performing. They eventually forgave me.

As a grown-up, I still feel the magic of vintage clothing, and I still write. Storied Vintage is my opportunity to combine these two passions and share some of the magic with you! (No acting required.)

Please note that I am also on etsy as rainewrites. I had no intention of becoming a seller when I established this profile; it relates to my writing. When I decided I DID want to open a shop, I chose Storied Vintage.

The goal of Storied Vintage is to combine my love of storytelling with my passion for fashionable vintage clothing and accessories. I only sell what I love: an eclectic assortment of authentic, vintage clothing in excellent, wearable condition. Many of the items come from my own wardrobe. I the love the idea of sending these garments off on the next chapter of their great adventure. Each piece has its own story, but what happens next is up to YOU!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Payments must be made through Pay Pal upon purchase. I am willing to RESERVE an item for up to 24 hours upon request, but please ask BEFORE you purchase the item.

If an item is not paid upon purchase, I will send an e-mail reminder on the second day; if payment has not been received by the third day, the item will be re-listed and negative feedback will be left. Please be considerate!

Layaway is available for all items over $100. 14 day, 30 and 60 day terms are available, based on the value of the item(s) you are ordering. Items between $100 and $149 are eligible for the 14 day layaway plans. Items between $150 and $299 may be set up on a 30 day layaway, and items of $300 or more are eligible for the 60 day extended layaway plan. Layaway cannot be used in conjunction with sale prices, coupons or other discounts. If you are interested in setting up a layaway, please convo me for complete information.
Shipping
U.S. SHIPPING: I ship PRIORITY MAIL for domestic purchases so you can track your item. I ship two to three days a week; you will be notified once your item(s) have been shipped.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: I ship international purchases first class mail unless otherwise requested. Customs fees, import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer’s responsibility. I will not state the item is a gift to avoid paying customs duty. I am happy to combine shipping on multiple items.


I will ship to the name and address on your PAYPAL account and assume no responsibility should that information be incorrect for any reason.
If you want INSURANCE on your purchase, PLEASE LET ME KNOW. I will invoice you for your item and include the charge for insurance. I take NO responsibility once items are posted so please remember that if you want insurance, please let me know before making payment.
If an item is returned to me for non-delivery or the buyer’s failure to pick-up, I will convo the buyer and offer to reship the item. They buyer has 14 days to pay the cost of reshipping plus a $10 repacking fee. If the buyer does not pay the fees to have the item(s) reshipped, I will refund the buyer 75% of the original purchase (not including shipping) with the remaining 25% non-refundable due to the missed opportunity of selling the item(s) to another buyer.
Refunds and Exchanges
ALL SALES ARE CONSIDERED FINAL. I take every precaution to ensure all items are as represented. In addition, items are re-checked before shipping. On the rare occasion I might find something not previously reported, I will notify the customer before I ship and will cancel the sale upon request. All this said, my goal is to find each vintage item the right new owner. If you are NOT satisfied, please contact me immediately upon receipt of your item and before leaving feedback. Thank you.

Additional policies and FAQs
1) CLOTHING MEASUREMENTS: I measure each piece of clothing while flat. For BUST, I measure underarm seam to underarm seam and double; waist, seam to waist seam and double; hip, seam to hip seam and double. To determine length, I measure either shoulder or underarm seam to waist or to hem (and note which) depending on the style of dress.

Note that measurements are on the outside, so YOUR measurements should be SMALLER than those of the garment unless the garment is one intended to stretch. Not sure? PLEASE ASK. I do not accept returns due to fit.

SUGGESTION: Take a similar item of clothing that you know fits. Lay it flat and measure as I described above.

2) COUPONS: If the shop is having a coupon sale, you MUST enter the coupon code at the top of the shop announcement to redeem your % off. Sale does NOT apply to items on reserve.

3) I recommend washing or dry cleaning all garments purchased. I do not recommend washing vintage rayon as it SHRINKS. It is not the same as the rayon used in clothing today.

4) While major flaws are disclosed, expect minor wear to vintage garments as they are 'previously loved.'

5) Accessories in photographs are never included unless stated, including crinoline and other undergarments.

6) All Storied Vintage items come from a smoke free home.
