I like that it's heavy and looks old and authentic. I would buy again from this vendor as it is everything she represented

Updates

Just got word shipping is going up again in January. I get a lot of messages about free or reduced shipping, but, as you can see, my shipping rates are not inflated. Trust me, the sellers are just as frustrated with shipping costs as the customers are!

About

In the begining...

I was just a collector. I hunted down and stalked Asian design pieces that I had to have. I couldn't resist a good deal on vintage Chinese or Japanese items. I filled my house with travel mementos and finds. Friends and family picked up on my interest and would also bring me fun things that they spotted for me.

And then Julian & Jane were born... Kids and antiques are not a match made in heaven. Stuff got broken- there were tears all around! There was also trying to find room for all the baby gear and then toys. That initiated the thought that I was done amassing and needed to slim down my collection.

The Richarmed Life has enabled me to share my collection with the world. I've shipped from Iceland to New Zealand and everywhere in between! It's been fun to still be able to snatch up terrific vintage finds and have them find homes with people who also see their beauty and value. Right now many of my listings are family items- the past year has seen us closing and remodeling the homes of several grandparents!

    I'm a Florida girl. I love traveling the world. I enjoy finding treasures when I'm abroad. I'm a collector at home too. My house is completely decked out Chinoiserie-style! I design and sell jewelry for a living. Check it out at RIcharme.Etsy.com!

Payment
If you are not paying immediately, please contact me to let me know how long you estimate it will take you to pay. If I do not hear from you or receive payment within 4 days, I will cancel the sale.

If you want an item but can't pay right then, please contact me. I am happy to reserve items. I will reserve an item for up to a week. If there is a situation where you need longer, please convo me and let me know and I will consider extending the reserve.

Once an item has shipped, I cannot cancel an order.
Shipping
I ship Monday through Friday. I use recycled packaging. While I like to have orders in the mail within 3 business days, during busier times of the year it can take up to 10 business days to process. If you need something faster, please contact me BEFORE you buy and I can usually get it out quicker. If we need to do it Express mail, most of the time I can make that happen, but I would absolutely advise contacting me first.
I do ship international- please contact me with your exact country and I may be able to lower the shipping cost. US buyers, I ship from Clearwater, Florida so if you are nearby, let me know and it might be a lower rate.
Lastly, due to the jump in the USPS's breakage rate in the last few months, insurance is automatically added to the shipping cost. You do have the option of opting out and saving maybe a dollar or two, but I do not advise this as I do not accept returns and shipping costs are non-refundable.
Refunds and Exchanges
I describe my items well and post as many pictures as Etsy allows. I expect my buyers to look through all the photos and read the descriptions. I do not accept returns.
I cannot refund shipping. If an item is lost or damaged in the mail, please use the tracking info to make a claim with the USPS. Remember, insurance is included in the shipping cost. Once an order has left my hands, I am not responsible for it.
If it is damaged in the mail, please contact me before leaving feedback. You MUST provide photos of the damaged item and packaging. No refunds can be issued without such proof.
Additional policies and FAQs
I research my items and price them at great prices- often significantly below what they're going for in other shops, so I do not discount. I am happy to try to reduce shipping by seeing what it would be to your exact country or zipcode, but my prices are firm.
As with most vintage items, some wear is normal. I do take good photos and mention condition issues. As a rule, I do not clean my items as some would be considered damaged if the natural "patina" is disturbed. It's up to you how sparkly you want to make your vintage find, but I do always mention if an item could use a scrub.
