I always combine shipping to get your the best price.
in the past I always left feedback for all purchases but Etsy has now made it impossible to leave feedback for buyers.
to all my wonderful customers past and future I appreciate your business and appreciate a smooth transaction.

On multiple purchases, please wait for me to send an invoice through Paypal before paying.

Your parcel will arrive securely packaged in clean recycled materials.

All of my items have been previously owned, many have been dearly loved and used; others may be in the original wrapping and unused.
My home is pet and smoke free but I can't guarantee that the homes these items came from were.
Everything that I sell has been carefully cleaned if possible, new items still in the original package will not be, linens just out of the package and in factory folds will not be. Most fabric will be aired but not washed unless there was a stain or soil and this will be noted.

All patterns are carefully checked for missing pieces.
Porcelain, pottery and china pieces may be offered with crazing, a tiny chip or mark these will all be noted and will not affect the use or enjoyment of the item.

- I do my best to describe all items accurately but sometimes my 66 year old eyes miss a tiny imperfection that shows up in different light. Just in case I missed something ~I examine my linens carefully but with all used vintage linens there may a faint spot that I have missed, these would certainly not be of any significance and would not spoil the use or enjoyment of the item.

You as a buyer are responsible for paying all shipping costs in a timely manner.

International money order for all orders outside of Canada (the pink US postal one please from the USA)
If you must cancel a purchase please do so within 7 days so that valuable exposure time in my shop is not lost.
All my parcels are shipped using Canada Post. I usually ship 1-3 days after I receive payment weather permitting.

In Canada anything under 500g and 2cm will be sent as lettermail, this has no insurance or tracking. If you wish these services the parcel will be sent Expedited. All parcels over

2cm in depth will be automatically sent expedited mail.
Since cost differ by postal code the shipping cost in my listing is based on a NFLD code. and is for expedited parcel. This is just a basic idea of the most it will cost. shipping will be several dollars less in most cases as you move west closer to my home in Calgary.

Due to the cancellation by Canada Post of small packet surface shipping to the US and insurance on all small packet and airmail parcels to the US and International destinations I have made the following changes.
Shipping costs for parcels measuring more than 2cm thick are given for airmail to the US and International destinations, these will include a fee for insurance provided by Insurepost,except for parcels weighing over 1 kilo.
Costs for airmail shipping are given in my listing for USA and International destinations.
Light packet air is still available for all destinations but will now include insurance by Insurepost.
Larger parcel over 1 kilo-2kg will be sent small packet surface to International destinations with insurance but no tracking. Tracking can be provided at a higher cost.
If customers in the USA wish tracking and insurance a new service Tracket Packet is available at a higher flat rate cost for the US on parcels weighing 250g -1000g, expedited parcel is also available for these weights and parcels over 1 kilo
Tracket packet is available for only 20 countries world wide.
To save costs for shipping I pack all items in the smallest possible way.

I will be happy to combine purchases to save you money. Please be aware that not all combined purchases result in lower shipping costs.
Flat rate pricing goes in incremenets of 250g, 500g and 1 kilo. Over 1 kilo cost is based on destination, weight and dimensions. If two items are combined and one is just below the 500g weight and the other just below 1 kilo,and when packed together go over 1 kilo it will result in higher costs than each shipped seperately.
All parcels shipped from Canada must be cleared at customs. I declare actual value and do not mark as gift.
Please be aware that delays at customs are normal and unpredictable.
SHIPPING TIME: Parcels sent by surface to the US may take up to 3 weeks depending on time clearing customs and your proximity to a major city.
Parcels sent to International destinations by surface mail may take up to 4 months.
Refunds and Exchanges
I provide prompt courteous service to my buyers, and answer all emails, if you have not gotten an answer it is because I did not receive the message, please try again.

All vintage items are sold as is, please consider that most have been used and are not new therefore will have some signs of use and will not be shiny new.
Please ask questions about the item and read listings carefully before buying as I do not accept returns or exchanges.
In the unlikely case that I have grossly misrepresented, or incorrectly described an item refunds will be considered on an individual basis.
I pack all breakables very carefully and mark all fragile items with a fragile sticker.
Due to the high number of lost parcels being reported when sent to International destinations, I want to make it very clear that if you choose not to upgrade to shipping with tracking there is a greater possibility of lost packages. All items are insured except those sent by lettermail.
