Welcome to The Closet Historian! All of our designs are inspired by vintage and historic fashion, many are one of a kind, and some feature antique or vintage components available nowhere else. I strive to create the best quality I can to ensure you long lasting enjoyment of your new accessory.

The Closet Historian is also the name of my blog, which you can visit here :

I sometimes, well, as often as I can, use antique or vintage materials in my hats and jewelry. These could include flowers, pendants, vintage pins, beads or any other found objects I can get my hands on. Because these items are already older and have a past history before becoming a part of a BME design they may have a patina or be chipped or aged in some way. I consider these 'flaws' part of the vintage charm and it is part of what I love about re-working vintage finds.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
All sales are FINAL! as each piece (including hats, jewelry, vintage) is handmade and unique. Unless there is severe damage done during shipping to the item itself,in which case I will gladly replace it after I am contacted and the original purchased item is returned via the mail carrier of your choice to me.

Please exercise good judgment before placing your order and ask me any questions you may have about any of our items.

Overall please contact me immediately if you are unhappy with your purchase and I will see what I can do for you.

Note: Many of my jewelry pieces are made with brass materials, some of these may discolor against the skin (this depends on your personal skin ph levels), this is because some have only been plated with gold or silver over brass and are not solid, my aim is to find the best quality materials I can but when I buy from vintage shops or large wholesale shops it is sometimes hard to be sure what exactly some chains are, plated or solid. I personally believe that whatever patina may arise it only can add to the unique character of the piece and I do not consider this a problem or reason for a return. This being said I want to add that I do coat the brass ring bases I use with a clear sealant to protect their finish.
Paypal Preferred - You do not need a Paypal account to actually use Paypal - You can create a Paypal account or you can simply use Paypal to pay with a credit card or debit card without creating a Paypal account. Once payment is received, I will ship your order.
All items will be shipped through the united states postal service and may take up to 7-10 business days depending on your location.

I will be shipping items as soon as payment is received.

If you need international shipping (outside of the United States) there will be an additional charge, I am sorry about this!
