The GayDivorcee

About

Reminiscing the past........

Him: Builder, baker, collector, not a dancer, Veteran of Foreign Wars, animal lover.
Her: Artist, educator, traveler, dancer.


When she decided that she would sell her art here on Etsy, he had other plans for her. He asked her to help him sell his vintage items since he is not very good with the computer. She agreed and started by picking out a name for the shop. He was no help. After suggesting name after name, after name, after name, she stood in the middle of the room looking at all his stuff and began to cry. Being crippled up from sitting on the computer for months trying to sell her art that wasn't selling, she thought to herself, "It would be easier to just get a divorce!" And in her head, she shouted, "I WANT A DIVORCE!" And that is how she chose a name for the shop that would sell all of this vintage stuff.

The Gay Divorcee is a 1934 film starring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Since she dances and he does not, and since either one of them can talk about any old movie in the world, the name stuck.

And he will continue to bring things home and reminisce about them.

And she fears that this will never end and she will never see her art again..

And, they lived happily ever after..........in separate heads.

(There are still so many things to list, that it can go on forever. But I know that I am helping out the planet with each vintage item.) And slowly, very slooooowwwwwwwly, she is returning to her roots, in ART: https://www.etsy.com/shop/LittleCityArtStudio and

As with the nature of vintage items, everything is sold as is, as I give accurate descriptions of any flaws with said item. If I have misrepresented the item, you will be refunded the total price plus shipping.

If your item arrives damaged, I would expect adequate proof of said damage, such as photos of damage, and you will be refunded your total purchase price plus shipping after providing such proof.

Everything else will have to be dealt with on a case by case basis. With all this said, I do believe that 30 days is certainly an adequate time frame for refunds and returns and should be done within in this time frame.

Please feel free to contact me for shipping quotes to your area as shipping may be calculated using the furthest distance from me.
