Taste Ladies worked in the fashion department at newspapers in an earlier era; today they would be called fashion editors. They had a good eye. So do I. And I use it to spot vintage finds, from designer clothing to table linens. I strive to deliver white-glove service and almost always answer emails within a few hours. I am always happy to provide additional information, photos or measurements.

Accepted payment methods

Paypal Mastercard Visa American Express Discover Apple Pay Klarna Giftcard
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
Unless otherwise noted in the listing, items can be returned for a full refund of the purchase price within 7 days. Return shipping is at the buyer's expense (unless the return is due to an error on my part, in which case I will pay for return shipping) and the outbound shipping cost will not be refunded unless I made a gross error in the listing or in the item sent. To be eligible for a refund, the item must be in the same condition as shipped -- if it had tags on it or was in sealed packaging, it must be in the same condition.
Payment
Payments are expected within 24 hours. If you need longer, please contact me to work it out. Illinois residents pay 10.25% sales tax. I accept credit cards, PayPal and Etsy gift cards.
Shipping
I generally ship within one business day. When my schedule allows, I also ship on Saturdays. If you're in a rush and would like an item shipped on Saturday, email me and I'll do my best to accommodate the request. Items valued at $50 or more will be insured, and there may be a small additional charge. I generally ship via USPS, but can offer other services, including Federal Express, upon request.
- I am always happy to combine shipping. If it doesn't make sense to box items together (for example, a very heavy item and a fragile one), I will offer you a shipping discount for multiple purchases.
International customers are welcome and valued.
- Insurance will be added to international shipments over $50.
- Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer's responsibility.
- Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding/buying.
Additional policies and FAQs
Items are stored in a non-smoking, dog-friendly home. However, many of my items come from estate sales, so I cannot vouch for past exposure to smoke or pets; if I notice any telltale signs I note them in the listing. Vintage items typically show some normal wear and tear or slight imperfections that are to be expected with age and use and may not be detailed in the listing. When listing the decade or age of a vintage item, I am making a best guess in most cases. Any perceived errors regarding the age of the item shall not constitute a gross error on my part for refund purposes. I describe items to the best of my ability, but I am not an expert in many of the items I sell.
