Tiny treasure! Vendor was a pleasure to work with. Item just as pictured and ease of shipment... fun to have a package arrive from Canada to boot :)

These were just as described, and they happened to go amazingly perfectly with the outfit I was putting together. Thanks for everything!

About

Welcome to the Valley !

This is the third year working on the Valley and I'm loving it ! I have always been the creative type, crafting almost everyday with mum in my early years, while being quite the acting/singing type on the other side with dad. That translated later on in life being part of a theater company for many years, member of a psych-folk band for a couple of years and taking art workshops here and there.

Living just outside Montreal with my hubbie, our two cats and a third 'outside guardian’ kitty Tigger. We feel a responsibility to give some of our money and time to take care of/find good homes for feral/lost cats in need in the area as well.

I have an inclination to collect unusual, funky, go-go, retro and what-the-hell-is-that-for objects, these things that amazingly are often left unloved at garage sales. I am also passionate about any item that brings back that feeling of sweet ‘innocence’ from the 50’s or 60’s….of course let’s not forget about the 70’s of the hippy-ish-funky décor I grew up in.

I hope you feel that your visit to my world brings a little of this back to you !

*

This shop is in great honor of my dearest mum (who you can half see in all her glorious youth on my banner and profile pic) who passed away too early in 2009. She was also my best friend and I will always admire the powerful yet gentle inner strength and courage she carried with her all her life Je t'aime Maman.

Hello, Bienvenue, Welcome and thanks for visiting my shop ! I am offering carefully chosen funky retro & mod vintage items, either for your home decor, your own look or even for supplying the crafter in you. I hope you find something you love ! I sure enjoy(ed) a lot of these special gems but...lots of them and not enough space in this modest home !

All items are shipped to you from my smoke-free home. However, as most of the items listed are coming from Estate sales, there is now way of knowing if the previous owners were smokers.

While I try to keep my office pet free my home is not. I do my best to keep pet hair off my items, which are all stored in closed containers, and I will always go over every fabric-covered items with a lint brush before packing to make sure.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I now accept DIRECT CHECKOUT and ETSY gift cards.

I also accept Paypal payments and credit card payments via Paypal.
Shipping
After you have made your payment, I will ship your item(s) as soon as possible within the next 3 to 5 business days. You will be able to check on the status of your order when you go click on the top right of your page on 'Your Account' section where you'll find the 'Purchases' link.

*All shipping quotes include a small packaging fee

---------------------------------------------------------------

PAPER GOODS (as in cards or prints/aceos) will be sent via Canada Post LetterPost mail with shipping times of 2-4 business days for Canada, 4-8 business days for USA and 4-10 business days for Overseas.

ALL OTHER ITEMS - FOR CANADA Items will be mailed via Regular Parcel. Delivery standards 2-9 business days.

ALL OTHER ITEMS - FOR USA - Please take note that of 2013, Canada Post stopped offering its Standard Ground shipping for USA for small parcels. All parcels from my shop will now have to be shipped via Air Mail which explains the little raise in shipping to US. You will get it faster though - All packages weighting less than 500gr and with a thickness of 2cm max (for example a small book or jewelry pin) will be sent via Light Packet Air Mail with delivery times within the next 4-8 business days. All other bigger items that don't fit these requirements will go through Small Packet Air Mail, delivery times 4-8 business days as well.

ALL OTHER ITEMS - FOR OVERSEAS - Items will be shipped via Standard Ground with delivery standards of 4-8 weeks. Please convo me prior to purchase if you prefer to pay extra to have it shipped by AIR MAIL. The shipping fees for Light Parcel International are still not too high a difference in costs depending on the item.

Shipping internationally will go smoothly most of the time. However, every so often a package can get stuck in customs. Please be aware that I can’t be responsible for these delays. If you need faster shipping, please convo me PRIOR to purchase and I will forward you the new quote.

*INTERNATIONAL Shipping* I ship around the world. If your country is not in the listing, convo me so I can send you a quote and add it to the list

All shipping fees are an *estimate only* (especially for Canadian customers). I try my best to find and list the most accurate fees for an item but should there be an overcharge in the end, any difference in shipping over $1 will be refunded to your PayPal account.

*COMBINED SHIPPING : I will combine shipping on more than one item but this needs to be done on a case-by-case basis through convo, as Canada Post doesn't make this easy to figure out in advance.

-------------------------------------------------------------

I will purchase insurance and/or tracking option only at your request, unless it is already included in the type of parcel service.

*Buyer assumes responsibility for CUSTOM FEES. If I'm shipping the item(s) to you outside of Canada, you might be charged with taxes & duties by your country's customs office. Unfortunately, I have not control over that.

*I use recycled paper and labels, eco-friendly package stuffing and when I can use CLEAN recycled boxes.
Refunds and Exchanges
Please remember that my items are vintage items and not new, therefore, they will exhibit normal wear from having been previously loved ! I look for items that I would use and enjoy myself, so they are in fine condition. I do my best to show accurate photographs and any flaws or greater imperfections will be stated in the listing.

I will be happy to answer any additional questions you might have about any of my listings and take any other photos you would like, just let me know : )

If, for whatever reason you are not satisfied with you item, please contact me and a refund will be arranged :

-Item(s) must be returned in the original packaging within 14 days after receiving the order.

- Buyer will have to pay the Return shipping fees only.

- Refunds will be given after receipt of the original item in it's original condition.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please do not hesitate to contact me for any necessary policy clarification prior to placing your order. I really want to ensure that you are pleased with your purchase and everything related to it. I will always try to reply to your request within the next 24 hrs.
