Love them, but I missed the narrow sizing in the details. OOPS! My mistake. They arrived well wrapped and looking just as described :)

About

Him and me

That's the story. We do what we love, and we both love taking pictures and finding beautiful old clothes. He is a walking encyclopedia of couture knowledge, and I have the off the rack history covered. He is one of those men who can stop women on the street and tell them how lovely they look., hand them a card, and a few weeks later, they are modeling for us. I make the hats you see in my shop, from vintage or luxury fabrics, using my own design and pattern.

Payment
I usually ship within three business days of confirmed payment. Please note that Paypal echecks take 5 to 7 days to clear, during which I cannot send your item.

On receipt of item:
I list items as carefully as I can and ship them in protective packaging. Should something not be as described, please send me a convo within three days of receipt.

Holds:
I will hold an item for you for three days. If you are in need of more time you may lay an item away. To do this, I require a 50% non-refundable deposit fee. The remaining 50% plus postage is due within two weeks. If the item is not fully paid by that time, I will return it to stock and the deposit is forfeited.
Shipping
Because I work full time, as well as run this shop, I ship twice a week. Your item will be sent within five days of purchase. Please send me a note if you are in need of immediate shipping and I will do what I can to make it happen.

Please note: I will ship your item in protective plastic. It isn't as pretty as tissue paper, but it is far safer. If dropped in water, your item is protected, if the package tears, your item is protected, if it is raining when it is in transit, your item is protected.

I am happy to upgrade shipping and to send to most countries. Please ask for fees.

My shipping fees are approximate and based on a flat rate fee. If the difference between the actual cost of shipping and what was collected from you is $2 or more, I will refund the difference.

Custom and insurance fees are the purchaser's responsibility and I list the actual cost on the customs label. I will not honor requests to falsify customs forms.
Refunds and Exchanges
Because the fit of your wedding dress is especially important, I have the following policy for wedding dress fitting issues: if the dress is returned to me postmarked within three days of receiving the dress and in the same condition, I will return the payment except for a 15% restocking fee when I have the dress back. Postage both ways is paid for by the buyer.

Because of the unique and delicate nature of vintage clothing, I do not accept returns for other reasons, unless the description is significantly different than the item you receive.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please ask if you have questions. I want you to be happy with your purchase and I strive to earn your positive feedback. Should you find that the item was not what you expected, please send me a note before leaving feedback. I want you to have a great Etsy experience with me!

I don't hang delicate garments on hangers! That wears at the fabric and can ruin the dress in time. I store my delicate items folded in bins.

I will put items on hold for two days.
