About

Making Life Feminine & Fun One Vintage Dress At A Time

Once upon a time, there lived a shy, teenage girl from Long Island named Meg Darling that loved expressing herself through fashion. She loved turning over her closet and started selling her closet castoffs on Livejournal in 2004 under the name "Drop Your Drawers." As her style changed from wearing mall bought clothes to thrift store finds, she fell in love with vintage clothing and her stores focus soon changed as well. She quickly built a website to share her vintage finds with the world and she also sold on Ebay and later Etsy. As the years went by though she got tired of explaining what DYD meant and changed her store name to something more like the bright, whimsical world she envisioned, Storyland Vintage.
☆☆☆
Hello there and thank you for stopping by Storyland Vintage! I strive to fill my shop with fun & feminine vintage clothing and have a profound love for novelty prints and 1950's-60's dresses. My idea of a great day is estate sailing and sitting in a strangers home digging through boxes of clothes or launching myself into deep, dark, dusty closets to find hidden jewels. Everything I sell here at Storyland Vintage was personally sourced by me, often times by me relying on a gut feeling to go to a particular sale or aisle at a thrift store destined to find a particular piece(its really weird I'll go down a random aisle and find a 40's dress). I long for the day I will finally take Storyland Vintage to a storefront but until then, I am always thrilled(and usually teary eyed) to read happy emails, to see photos of customers in their vintage scores and to find something I sold was purchased for possible use in television or film!

Thanks again for stopping by, happy shopping and feel free to contact me with any questions you may have :D

hearts, meg

Returns and exchange details
ALL SALES ARE FINAL. There are no refunds or exchanges*. Here at Storyland Vintage I sell 100% vintage items, since the items are old they cannot be expected to be in new condition as they have probably been used/worn and experienced wear at some point. I take great care in providing accurate and thorough measurements, descriptions of condition and provide many photos including close ups of any flaws and take great pride in my ability to do so. Colors vary from monitors to mobile phones please rely on description of color. Measurements provided are taken flat and you must allow room for them to fit. Due to the detailed care and service I provide, returns and exchanges are not accepted for fit, color issues or minor flaws. Please view all photos, read an items description and measurements thoroughly before placing an order and please ask any and all questions prior to purchase. I want you to LOVE your Storyland Vintage purchase and I am always happy to double check measurements, send additional measurements, describe the color and send additional photos :)

*I will review return inquiries on a case by case basis only in the event an item arrived in a condition entirely different than represented. In the event that occurs or there is a problem with your order please send an email within 48 hours of receiving the item to resolve a problem before leaving a poor review. Please note that shipping is not refundable, I do not refund items shipped to smoking homes and items older than the 1940s are always final sale due to their fragile nature.
Payment
↣ Storyland Vintage accepts payment through direct checkout and Paypal.

♥ Reserves/Layaways ♥
Reserves/layaways are only accepted for items over $100 with a non-refundable down payment of 20%. Please contact me from the listing page to set this up. Sorry, during sales I can not accommodate reserves. The early bird catches the vintage, doll!
Shipping
↣ Storyland Vintage ships Monday-Friday, and usually next business day unless there is a special notice in the shop announcement.

↣ Shipping rates are directly calculated from USPS at checkout. But in the event of a shipping overcharge I will refund the difference if it amounts to $1 or more(this happens usually with multiple item orders or if a customer lives close to NY state).

↣ In the event an order is returned to sender because of a mistake in the shipping address listed the customer is responsible for the amount to re-ship it.

♥ Domestic Customers ♥
All domestic orders are shipped via USPS Priority mail and take 2-3 days through the mail. A tracking code will be sent to your email when I am about to ship your order. Please save this email so you can check the status of your shipment!

♥ International Customers ♥
Storyland Vintage ships WORLDWIDE! Most items ship internationally via USPS First Class International however heavier, fragile & pricier items(over 4 pounds) are shipped via USPS Priority Mail International. Please be aware that duties and taxes are the responsibility of the buyer, I cannot and will not mark items as "gift."

♥ Want your vintage even faster? ♥
Express shipping is offered on some listings at checkout. It is best to contact me before placing an order to ensure that I can accommodate the rush shipping.

♥ Ordering a few items? ♥
Shipping will be totaled automatically at checkout, but if you are buying multiple items and would like a more precise rate, please contact me with the URLS of what you would like.

International Customers: Please note, heavier items(4+ pounds) will have to ship with Priority Mail International which is limited to 5 items in a package. Pricier items at my discretion will only be shipped Priority International and not First Class.

♥ Want a Coupon Code? ♥
Receive a 20% off coupon code when you strike a pose in your Storyland Vintage purchase on Instagram! Make sure your account is not set to private, then tag @StorylandVintage in the caption and as the item in the photo. I'll message you with your exclusive coupon code valid on Etsy/StorylandVintage.com and will probably re-post your awesome look on Instagram!

♥ Condition ♥
At Storyland Vintage I sell 100% vintage items. Since the items are old they cannot be expected to be in new condition as they have probably been used/worn and experienced wear at some point. Any noticeable flaws will be noted in an items description, however sometimes minor flaws may be overlooked. If you'd like me to scan an item again for flaws before making a purchase, please contact me. Items are rated by condition on each item page and they are defined in the chart below:

EXCELLENT: A fantastic find, *near* perfect!
GREAT: A couple flaws or signs of wear that do not retract from the piece.
GOOD: A few flaws that may be noticeable, may be able to be repaired and cleaned.
FAIR: A study piece, too cool to trash but probably not good enough to wear without some work.

♥ Measurements ♥
Measurements are taken flat and provided in an items description and doubled where appropriate unless otherwise stated. The best way to determine fit is to compare the measurements listed to your own body measurements and also to something you already own and love the fit of. Remember to allow room for movement to ensure a proper fit. If you would like additional measurements, please contact me!

I provide model/dressform sizes for reference. Please note clothing may be clipped on the model to show how they would look on the suitable size but will be denoted after "PINNED TO MODEL?"

Shopping with a mobile device? Click "Item Details" to view the measurements.

♥ Accessories ♥
Belts and accessories are NOT included unless stated on the items page.

♥ Cancellation ♥
I reserve the right to cancel and refund an order at any time for any reason.

♥ Custom orders

I only sell vintage items. Often vintage is one-of-a-kind and it is highly unlikely to find that special item ever again. So, don't live a life of heartbreak and regret, if you have your eye on something, snatch it up before it's too late! It's now or never, doll!

And if you happen to be looking for something in particular, please let me know, I have 100's of pieces of unlisted vintage stock :)

♥ Are prices negotiable?

Adapted from a sign in an antique shop and edited to fit being an online vintage clothing seller:

I hunt it, travel to find it, find it, buy it, haul it, wash it, scrub it, repair it, fix it, patch it, steam it, model it, photograph it, edit photographs for it, describe it, research it, compare it, list it, advertise it, relist it, weigh it, display it, care for it, package it, ship it.....
"Now how can I take any less?"

That being said, I may be open to fair offers but please check the shop announcement and social media for coupon codes and the Saleland section for already discounted vintage.

♥ No Returns/Refunds

ALL SALES ARE FINAL. There are no refunds or exchanges. Please view all photos, read an items description and measurements thoroughly before placing an order and please ask any and all questions prior to purchase. I want you to LOVE your Storyland Vintage purchase and I am always happy to double check measurements, send additional measurements, describe the color and send additional photos :)

♥ Reserves/Layaways

Reserves/layaway's are available for serious customers on items that were not newly listed and not listed in Saleland. Please contact me from the listing page to set this up! Sorry, during store wide sales I can not accommodate reserves. The early bird catches the vintage, doll!
