About

Old is cool at The Hunter Gatherer Shop

Old is cool. That’s the mantra at The Hunter Gatherer Shop. For those who wrinkle their noses at the “used” and “worn”, this is not the realm for you, and we should rejoice- more treasures for us to find!

For some, vintage and thrift shopping is a necessity born from the realities of a budget. For others it is a love of things with history and presence.

Here, it is a both. Vintage clothing harkens back to an era when the art of tailoring was the norm, before the industrial revolution and ready-to-wear created the poor fabrics and bad fits that we equate with new clothing that is not “designer” and expensive.

The Hunter Gatherer Shop is the work of one person (that would be me, April.) It is the culmination of a life-long love of cool old things and the hunt for them, which, over the years, has included jobs at a thrift store in Montana, several vintage clothing stores, a band, lots of restaurant, coffee shop, and music venue jobs in between, moves to Seattle and then to Brooklyn, and a wedding that has led me to a farm in the middle of rural America, with mon amore, two horses, two cats and a bird dog. There is a nod here to my personal history- a love of vintage western wear, British inspired “equestrian” or English riding gear (I’m an avid horsewoman), and a tendency to steal menswear for the ladies.

The Hunter Gatherer Shop offers an edited collection of vintage finds, with an emphasis on what can be mixed and matched into a wearable modern wardrobe, as well as a soft spot for one of a kind items and stuff that makes you want to focus you entire home décor direction around that ONE. SPECIAL. THING.

I hope you find it here.

Cheers-

April

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Payment is accepted through Paypal or with a credit card through Etsy Direct Checkout.
Shipping
This shop ships within 48 hours of payment, not including sundays and holidays that the post office is closed. We ship through USPS and provide tracking information on your Etsy order page for all shipments. We try to ship in the smallest packing possible to save you money on shipping costs. Sometimes this means we ship in the waterproof Tyvek envelopes- we've found that the Tyvek envelopes survive better than boxes- perhaps because they can't really be stacked!

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR WANT MORE SHIPPING OPTIONS THROUGH USPS, CONVO US. WE LIKE TO CHARGE YOU AS LITTLE FOR SHIPPING AS REALISTICALLY POSSIBLE WHILE STILL MAKING SURE YOUR PACKAGE ARRIVES QUICKLY.

US BUYERS
Our standard shipping is First Class Mail for small items, Priority Mail for mid-weight items, and Standard Mail for bulky items. We try to ship in a flat rate padded mailer whenever possible as it provides the fastest shipping for, on average, the lowest price. All items have the option to be upgraded to Priority (unless this is already the default cheapest option) or Express Mail.

WE WILL SHIP EXPRESS, CONVO US TO CONFIRM WE CAN GET IT TO YOU IN TIME.


INTERNATIONAL BUYERS
Our standard shipping rate is now First Class Mail for packages weighing under 2 pounds, and you have the option to upgrade to Priority Mail. For 2-4 pounds, if we can fit it in a Flat Rate padded mailer, we ship Priority Mail as it is about the same price as First Class Mail International and faster. We can ship Express for faster delivery, convo us to confirm we can get it to you in your needed timeframe.

PLEASE BE AWARE- FIRST CLASS IS OFTEN CHEAPER, BUT CAN TAKE A VERY LONG TIME!!! Sometimes it's fast, some areas it may take a month or more to reach you. Also, First Class International Mail cannot be tracked in transit- only upon departure and arrival.

ALL INTERNATIONAL PACKAGES INCLUDE INSURANCE IN THE SHIPPING COST.

International Buyers, Please Note:

WE WILL NOT CHANGE THE VALUE OF ITEMS ON CUSTOMS FORMS. We cannot insure an item that is valued for less than you actually paid for it. Be prepared to pay your customs fees accordingly.

Please check with your country's customs office to determine Import duties, taxes and charges prior to bidding/buying. These fees are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. These charges are normally collected by the delivering freight (shipping) company or when you pick the item up - do not confuse them for additional shipping charges.


We adhere to Etsy Protection policies for lost packages, please refer to their page for specifics about refunds and timelines.
Refunds and Exchanges
We want you to be happy with your purchase, but we also have to be realistic.

Therefore, we accept returns for a refund of purchase price, not including shipping, on all US ORDERS. Because of unpredictable shipping times outside of the US, we do not offer returns for international orders. Please ask any questions you need before placing an international order- we are always happy to send close-up photos or specific measurements so that you are happy with your purchase!

We ask that if you decide to return something, please:

Let us know within 3 days of receipt of your item.

We must receive it within 14 days of your receipt of item.

Buyer is responsible for shipping costs both ways.

Return item by the same shipping method and packaging style as you received it.

Return item in the same condition as you received it- any obvious wear and tear, soiling, etc. will forfeit the return.

We take great care in providing accurate descriptions of our items and multiple photos. We are not above making an occasional mistake or missing a flaw- we back our products 100% and will always make things right if we have missed something.
Additional policies and FAQs
Shipping costs are determined by the Etsy shipping calculator. Please feel free to contact us if the shipping price quoted on the site seems high, and we can get an exact rate which may be lower-
