Orecchini molto belli, come da descrizione, venditrice cordiale, gentile e puntuale. Sfortunatamente ho dovuto pagare tasse doganali per la metà del prezzo dell articolo...

About

From Country Girl to Vintage Vixen

Vintage Baubles & Bits started from a vintage clothing, vintage jewelry and vintage home decor obsession that has slowly, and with a lot of elbow grease, grown into a business. I grew up in rural Ohio in a very poor community and my family always struggled to make ends meet. When I was a teenager, my grandfather gave me a collection of vintage Fenton glassware slippers that he had been amassing for years, because every time I visited his house I'd get them down to admire because the colors and designs amazed me.

For those of you who know the Fenton brand, you'll know that the slippers were the least expensive pieces that were made; but for us, it was collecting something nice, worth treasuring. Since I received the collection I've been adding to it, which started my love of visiting thrift stores, antique malls and vintage resale shops.

While perusing these shops I found more things I liked and never knew existed! My personal collections, which include vintage West Virginia Glass Co. Blendo sets and vintage and antique purses, in addition to the Fenton slippers, started to grow. I realized how happy I was when I found these treasures and the wonder that came over me when I researched more about pieces that intrigued me. It was this wonder that lead me to wanting to provide this same feeling for others.

Thus, the birth of Vintage Baubles & Bits, a business focused on bringing all the pretty, girlie, beautiful vintage things of the past a new life.

Be sure to favorite the shop and heart a few listings so we show up in your Etsy front page!

Payment
✦ PAYMENT✦
We accept PayPal & credit cards and money orders*.

If you would like to pay via money order our policy is to wait and ship the item until after we have received the money order. Please contact me directly for information about my money order policy.

✦ RESERVATIONS✦
We will reserve most items for up to 3 days without a down payment to customers who are fully committed to purchasing within time frame. If additional time is needed for payment customers can enter into a lay away or payment plan option listed below. Please contact me first if you have interest in reserving an item(s) so that the listing can be edited for you.

✦ LAY AWAY / PAYMENT PLANS ✦
Merchandise is eligible for a payment plan if its costs exceeds $50. We are fairly flexible with payments, however, a down payment of 25% is required within 3 days. The down payment applies to the purchase price of your order. The order must be paid in full within 30 days, unless you have reached out to me to negotiate a different time frame for payment. Please contact us first if you have interest in lay away / payment plans.

✦ MO STATE SALES TAX✦
9% tax will be added to applicable orders for MO residents only. (Our business is located in MO, so we have to charge state sales tax to our fellow residents)

Shipping
✦ U.S. / DOMESTIC SHIPPING✦
We ship via USPS (United States Postal Service), which includes a complimentary tracking number for all orders within the U.S. The tracking number will be automatically e-mailed to you after the order is sent out.

Our standard shipping services are First Class, Parcel Select & Priority Mail, depending on the weight of the order.

We try to keep postage rates very reasonable and list rates very close to actual shipping charges. Anything extra helps to offset packaging and materials costs, such as envelopes, bubble wrap, tissue paper, address labels and thank you stickers.

I will ship within 3 business days of payment on all vintage items. For suitcase shelves, ledges and tables shipping time is 1-2 weeks from the date of your order. If there is a reason I cannot make this timeline I will contact you to let you know and inform you of when your item will ship.

After we receive payment, you can typically expect your item(s) in 3-7 business days if you are a customer from the US.

✦ INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING✦
We do offer worldwide shipping! We ship international orders using USPS First Class International. This service does not offer tracking information. International First Class packages typically takes 2-4 weeks, but can take up to 6-8 weeks, depending on the custom's process in your country.

If you are an international buyer, please be aware, as of January 2013 international shipping costs from the U.S. have gone up substantially. Many of our large items are only available to ship internationally if you convo us and we agree on the shipping prices after we have an estimate from USPS. Please note that many countries also have duty fees and taxes that they may charge you on your item. As a seller I cannot control those, please be aware that you may incur costs in addition to our postage fees. Vintage Baubles & Bits is not responsible for these fees.

International customers- We are honest and lawful regarding items values on customs forms. Please do not ask us to alter these values, thank you!

✦ EXPEDITED SHIPPING✦
We do offer expedited shipping services for U.S. & international orders via Priority Mail & Express Mail / Overnight

If you are interested in these services, please contact us BEFORE your purchase. We will then provide you with your options & rates. Then, we will adjust the shipping price in the listing or you can select the shipping upgrade option on each listing.

✦ SHIPPING INSURANCE✦
All jewelry over $50 has a higher shipping rate, this allows for the purchase of shipping insurance to cover loss or theft of the item while in transit. Our mandatory shipping insurance for jewelry over $50 provides you with piece of mind and protects your investment in our wonderful vintage sterling silver and gold pieces.

✦ COMBINED SHIPPING✦

We will combine shipping if you purchase multiple items. The way Etsy policy currently works with combined shipping is that you will be charged the full shipping amount on the highest shipping cost item and then each item after that will only cost the amount in the combined shipping column. For instance - if you were to purchase an item with the shipping cost of $14.95 and an item with the shipping cost of $5, you would be charged $14.95 +$1, the reduced price to ship the $5 shipping cost item. Etsy does not allow for both items to ship at the combined shipping column cost. If you have questions about this policy please feel free to convo me and I'll try to explain further.

✦ SHIPPING PROMISE✦

As always, if our shipping cost estimate is wrong, we will refund you the difference, as long as it's more than $2 different than the estimate.
Refunds and Exchanges
✦ RETURNS & REFUNDS✦
We are flexible and will always do everything we can to make sure our customers are happy! If you are not satisfied with your order, please contact us first. Generally, most sales are considered final unless we greatly misrepresented an item. We handle returns and refunds on a case to case basis. Returns / refunds are only considered within three days of an order arriving. Shipping fees are nonrefundable; buyer pays return shipping.

Refunds will be issued after the item is returned and inspected.

If an item has broken during shipping (which sadly can occur due to the delicate nature of vintage pieces) please provide a photo of the item and the damage. If it is beyond repair I will refund you the full amount and you will not need to ship the item back to me.

Layaway items and reserved items are not eligible for return or refund.
