About

Welcome to my store Vintagiality where originality meets vintage and vintage-inspired clothing, accessories, and items for the home.

I have always been fascinated with old things. I get electrified by their presence the same way today as I did when I was five, digging through my grandmother's attic or great-aunt's closet. I love and collect a myriad of old items from antique medicine bottles to old office equipment, from vintage formal gowns to adorable vibrant antique purses. Someone once said that an antique not only recaptures the magic and nostalgia of the past, but has special powers as it bears witness to experiences long gone. I think that by sharing the past, we pave the way to share the future.

All my items come from estate sales and thrift shops on the island of Martha's Vineyard, a place full of history, and tradition, and a bit of innate nostalgia of the past, where big business chains are not allowed and the heritage of whale captains and the old founding families are still visible and time has moved just a bit slower than elsewhere in the US.

“What I really love about them... is the fact that they contain someone's personal history...I find myself wondering about their lives. I can never look at a garment... without thinking about the woman who owned it. How old was she? Did she work? Was she married? Was she happy?... I look at these exquisite shoes, and I imagine the woman who owned them rising out of them or kissing someone...I look at a little hat like this, I lift up the veil, and I try to imagine the face beneath it... When you buy a piece of vintage clothing you're not just buying the fabric and thread - you're buying a piece of someone's past.”

― Isabel Wolff, A Vintage Affair

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept PayPal as well as all major credit cards. Additionally, I accept Etsy gift cards.

I kindly request payment immediately upon purchase unless prior arrangements have been made. I do offer a number of layaway plans. Should you have any problems with the payment process, please contact me and I will do the best I can to accommodate you.

I do reserve items upon request for up to two weeks for free. If you need the item reserved for a longer period, typically a 20% down payment is required. Please contact me to arrange specifics. I will hold the item until the agreed upon date only.

Cancellations can only be made prior to shipment.
Shipping
I make every effort to ensure that your purchase arrives safely and promptly. I will ship most items within one business day using the most cost-effective method available for the item taking into consideration the time frame for delivery. Most items are shipped USPS Priority Mail when mailed domestically in the US unless the expedited shipping option is selected. All items shipped within the US will be sent with tracking and delivery confirmation which I will provide promptly after the post office accepts the package. Most international items are shipped USPS First Class International. I provide a number for international packages as well but please note that information is rarely updated once the items leaves the US. I am happy to combine shipping on items that can be safely shipped together.

International buyers, I do ship overseas but some exceptions apply***. If you would like, please contact me for specific rates. Alternatively, I will apply my standard international rates and refund any overages over $3 above the cost of shipping and packaging material. Postage refunds would be given as soon as you confirm that the items have arrived safely at the destination.

Please note that I am not familiar with other countries customs requirements and will not be responsible for any duty charges or taxes you might incur. Let me know if you would like a packaging slip included in your package. Please note that I will NOT falsify customs forms under ANY circumstances. That includes marking the item as a "gift" or under declaring its value which is the purchase price.

***I do NOT ship to Afghanistan, Angola, Bolivia, Brazil, Burma, Congo, Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Ivory Coast (Cote d'Ivoire), Liberia, Mexico, Nigeria, North Korea, Paraguay, Russia, Sierra Leone, Somalia, South Africa, Sudan, Syria, Venezuela as my shipping insurance company does not want to provide insurance for these countries. I am sorry for the inconvenience this may cause.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to be happy with your purchase, and do my best to supply you with all of the information you need to make your buying decision with great confidence: complete measurements, accurate and thorough descriptions, including any flaws and photos of any flaws. Please remember that all the items I sell are vintage and have had a prior life unless specifically labeled as NOS (new old stock). Many would have minor imperfections and are part of the charm of buying vintage.

Please contact me with any question you have BEFORE purchasing, and use the measurements I provide and compare to a similar garment that fits you well. I'm more than happy to provide extra measurements, photos or assistance with fit. Returns made for improper fit will be assessed a 15% restocking fee.

If you are dissatisfied with your purchase for any reason, please contact me within 5 days of receipt. Customer satisfaction is of the utmost importance and I am always eager to answer any question or concerns.

If an arrangement has been made to return an item, it must be returned to me in the same original condition as it was when I shipped it out. Please note that I do not accept returns on wedding and prom dresses and other "one-time-wear" items.

Refunds are considered on an individual basis. The maximum refund shall be the purchase price. I will not refund shipping charges and the shipping cost of returning the item back to me.
Additional policies and FAQs
Due to the unique nature of vintage items, there might be the occasional slight or trivial imperfection. Although I take great care of the used items once they reach me, please understand that they have had a previous life. Anything out of the ordinary will be accurately indicated in the item description but as I am also human, I may miss a small imperfection. Due to various storage environments, some items may benefit from laundering or dry cleaning prior to use.

If you like a piece of vintage clothing but you need it altered to fit, I am more than happy to provide you a quote for a custom order.

Are you looking for a hard to find vintage item? Let me know and I just might have it in my inventory and not listed yet or may be able to find it for you. Send me a message to inquire.
