I love my new dress! It's exactly what I wanted. And the packaging was like a gift. Thank you so much. And I just love the little keychain. I will absolutely buy from you again.😊

About

Gothic Vintage from a Gothic Girl

"I belong, you should know, to that class of persons who turn day into night, and night into day, and who love all things uncommon and peculiar."
Anonymous, 1860 my favorite quote that says it all.

I have always been drawn to shadows, and I have always been a creative person and a lover of history. The Black Velvet's Vintage is a spinoff, if you will, of my main shop, Toadstool Farm Vintage. Black Velvet's Vintage gives me the opportunity to indulge in the shadowy and darker creative side of my nature, while still immersing myself in my passion for all things old, and all things that bring joy to a soul that loves the darker side of life.

This Etsy shop, which has been lying mostly fallow for the years I've had it, and has seen a coupe incarnations, has been transformed into an online venue for the more mysterious side of my nature. I welcome you to browse my shop, ask me any questions you may have, and take a peek at my other shop at Toadstool Farm Vintage for the lighter side of things.

    My favorite color is black. My favorite fabric is velvet. I am drawn to the night and find beauty in the darker things in life, so it was only natural that as my other Etsy shops grew I created this very special one for very special people.

I love old things. I delight in the hunt and the discovery of anew old treasure. If you love vintage as much as I do, you'll understand when I say there's just something about the stories an older item has gathered. I take my time carefully choosing every single item I carry in my shop. Each piece is inspected by me, washed when needed, repaired when needed, steamed and photographed by me.
Customer service is very important to me, please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.

Refunds and Exchanges
Your happiness is of the utmost importance to me, so please don't hesitate to contact me with any concerns or questions. Due to the vintage, one of a kind, nature of the items I sell, I do consider sales to be final. Occasional exceptions are made ( i.e., Gross misrepresentation of an item, for example ) , if you feel you may qualify for one of them, please contact me. Any returns that do qualify must be made within 14 days or receipt of the item/s and are for Store Credit only. Returns are not considered for issues of fit or slight color differences ( as monitors tend to vary slightly), or for change of heart, so do please choose carefully and ask me any questions prior to placing your order. I am always happy to be of assistance.
Additional policies and FAQs
On The Nature of Vintage Goods
Please remember that all items are vintage and previously owned, worn and loved. There will be signs of wear that are inevitable. I carefully inspect every piece and will describe conditions to the best of my ability, but some minor signs of wear should be expected and are not considered eligible for a return or refund.
The way I rate is as follows:

Excellent Near Mint: Looks brand new.

Excellent: Nearly flawless, and if any flaws, quite minor. The majority of my items fall into this category.

Great: Some minor flaws, such as mild stains, or small holes.

Good: Wearable and structurally sound but with visible flaws. Possibly in my Scratch and Dent section.

Fair: Some life left, but major flaws and issues. Probably not very wearable, and probably in my Scratch and Dent section anyway.
