Announcement    **All items are shipping within one business day and my business has not been impacted by COVID-19. I am healthy, and self-isolating as per state recommendations. All of my newly posted inventory is from a backlog of items that I purchased prior to March 1st. I welcome any questions, let me ease your concerns if you have any! Thank you SO much for continuing to keep me employed and for letting me share my (virus free!) vintage with you. **
Welcome to my Etsy shop! I love finding vintage items, both for myself and to sell, and I strive to post them for a reasonable price. My favorite thing to sell is vintage clothing of any era, but I tend to primarily have 40's - 70's. I also sell vintage accessories like scarves, gloves, purses, and hats; vintage kitchen (such as Pyrex and enamelware); vintage lingerie (I have some sort of addiction...); and other kitsch items.
I do my best to be accurate about the era of an item. I will photograph labels, maker marks, and other details that I feel are helpful; and I am willing to answer any questions. However, I am not an expert on everything, so please look carefully at the photos, read the descriptions and ask any questions you may have. I will always be honest about my items, their condition, and why I believe they are the era they are.
I ship Monday - Friday via USPS, and sometimes on Saturday. I ship same day or the following business day. You will receive an Etsy notification with a tracking number once an item has shipped.

About VintagePussycatShop

Sales 2,627
On Etsy since 2007

A vintage addict sharing my treasures!

My boyfriend introduced me to thrift shopping in 2011 (very reluctantly on my part!) and I initially began buying great modern pieces at really low prices. The more I shopped, the more adventurous I became. I started finding incredible vintage pieces here and there, until eventually vintage was the only thing I searched for.
An online network of vintage loving ladies led me to seek out non-clothing vintage such as Pyrex, cathrineholm and kitschy 50's goodness. My obsession slowly took over and opening a shop was the natural next step. After a layoff of my traditional job in 2016, I decided to pursue vintage selling as my full time profession.
I LOVE sourcing vintage items, whether they are for myself or my shop. Thrift stores, estate sales, yard sales, and the occasional private appointment. Being able to share these amazing pieces with other people who appreciate them the way that I do makes finding these pieces even more fun.

    Vintage enthusiast! I love anything from the 20's to the 70's, but my personal style usually leans towards bohemian.

    Instigator

    I blame him for the obsession. And he puts up with the nonsense of having a house that is essentially Vintage Supply storage.

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

All items list measurements in inches, and I am happy to provide additional measurements when requested. Clothing measurements provided are of the GARMENT, not of the person it is meant to fit.
If a garment has a size tag, I will disclose it. Vintage sizes vary GREATLY from modern day sizing and I strongly recommend that you have a tape measure and determine your measurements. It will be invaluable and prevent you from purchasing an item that doesn't fit the way you would like it to. My estimates of equivalent modern sizes are based on Anthropologie size charts for women, JCrew for men, and Torrid for plus size.
You may also wish to compare the measurements of the item to the size chart of a brand whose items fit you well.

Care instructions

I do not always list care instructions for my items.
Most vintage dishes should NOT be put in a dishwasher, as it will destroy their finishes.
Vintage clothing care varies greatly depending on the item.
My clothing and linen items are either a) washed in a commercial laundromat, or b) dry cleaned. If I do not have the expertise to clean an item, I will list any issues or concerns in the item details.
If an item came to me with its original tags on it, I will not remove them to launder the item. They may be aired out, and if there are any obvious issues I will note them in the item details.

Home Environment

My home is a non-smoking home, and very pet-friendly. Once cloth items have been laundered, they are placed into plastic clothing bags and stored in sealed bins. I do not have on-site laundry, and my laundry service uses scented detergent.
I often do not know the history of items coming to me. Some "vintage" or "thrift store" odors can be pervasive, especially to people with a sensitive sense of smell.
Common smells that vintage sellers encounter are mold, mothballs, smoke, musty basement, animal odors, or plain old "sitting in the attic for 30 years" smells.
Any known odors will be disclosed in a listing, though typically I will not list items that I know to have an issue (unless it is deadstock or very desirable).

International Orders

I am happy to ship internationally! Shipping fees are quite high for international orders, I know. My shipping fees are calculated based on weight and size of packages, and I do not add handling fees. International First Class is significantly less expensive than Priority, but may take longer. I do not alter the item cost on customs forms, because I can be fined or penalized for doing so. Your country may impose fees or taxes that are outside of Etsy, which you would be responsible for paying separately, outside of Etsy.

Discounts & Sales

I run sales on occasion, especially around the holidays. If you have Etsy notifications turned on, you may get emails from Etsy about your favorited items going on sale! Any shipping prices listed are calculated automatically based on size and weight, so discounts are not based on shipping prices. Etsy has lots of coupons for favorited items, or items left in your cart, so those notifications are great! While I am not always willing to discount an item, I am always happy to receive offers and I am always respectful with my replies!

Return Requests

I accept returns! Undamaged and unaltered items may be returned to me as long as they are shipped back to me within 14 days of when you received them. Contact me prior to shipping so I can give you instructions, as Etsy does not have a formalized return system. If your item was damaged in transit, definitely wait for my reply - if it requires me to file a claim with the post office, I will refund you immediately and handle the claim myself - and you most likely won't even need to return the item to me.

Shipping

I typically ship items within 1 business day, but please note in your order if you need it by a specific date.
For items that include shipping in the price, I will ship first class mail if the item is under 16oz. In the US, both Priority and First Class mail have a 1-3 day ship time (seems based on location). First class has no insurance.
International First Class usually takes 2-4 weeks, and International Priority is 6-10 business days. Every country’s postal service is different and may be a contributing factor in delays.
Please see usps.com for specific or official information.
If your package is delayed or lost, please contact me via Etsy messages so I may do my best to help resolve the issue.

I am more than happy to answer questions about the items in my shop or your purchases. I will do my best to resolve your question or problem, and I am grateful for the opportunity to work with you!
