About AnimalHeadVintage

Sales 1,905
On Etsy since 2008

I. Love. Vintage.

I've loved thrift stores since I was in high school. I always got a thrill from finding an amazing piece of clothing that I knew nobody else would be wearing. I still appreciate those well-made, stylish, unique pieces that just make people say "damn, girl" when you walk in a room.

I started this shop so that I'd have an excuse to go shopping more, but so that my husband couldn't call me a hoarder.

Currently it is just a part-time labor of love that takes up my evenings and weekends, and most of the second bedroom in our San Francisco apartment.

I truly hope you find something you love while shopping here.

    There is nothing that I love more than thrift stores, estate sales and flea markets. I part with each piece that I sell reluctantly, because I only stock the things I think are truly fabulous.

▲ Thanks for shopping Animal Head Vintage! ▲

We aim for 100% customer satisfaction and 100% positive feedback, so please contact us directly with any issues you may have and we will try to resolve them immediately.

We prefer not to put items on hold, but we do offer layaway with a 20% deposit. Message us if you have your eye on something that you can't afford immediately and we'll work something out.

We sell vintage (used) items, which means the pieces have probably been used and therefore may have minor imperfections. We try to describe any sort of wear and tear that we notice to the best of our ability, and price the item accordingly. Please email us for additional photos or explanation if you are concerned about the condition of an item.

Thanks for checkin' us out. xoxo

Returns and exchange details
▲ All Sales Are Final ▲

We don't offer refunds or returns unless there was something seriously misrepresented in our product description.

All our items are vintage/second hand, and may show signs of previous wear. We try to only choose the best quality vintage to sell to and to be as accurate as possible when listing the description. Any imperfections are described to the best of our knowledge.

All items will come clean and ready to wear, and any imperfections will be noted at time of purchase. Since we don't always know the exact fabric content of the delicate vintage items we sell, before washing I recommend consulting a professional for cleaning. We cannot take responsibility for any damage done with improper washing/cleaning.

Suggested "fits-as" sizes in the description are listed for general sizing purposes, but we still suggest that you compare the measurements of the item in question with an item in your own closet for fit comparison. We measure all garments flat, then double that measurement for the bust, waist, and hips (i.e. bust is measured arm pit to arm pit then doubled).

▲ Since all sales are final, PLEASE message us before purchasing if you have any questions, or would like additional measurements or photos. We do not process returns. ▲
▲ We gladly accept Credit Cards through Etsy Checkout and Paypal ▲

▲ As required by the Board of Equalization, all orders purchased/shipped in the State of California will be charged a sales tax rate of 8.25% which will be automatically added to your order at checkout (shipping is not taxed) ▲
▲ We ship twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays. ▲

▲ We are glad to combine shipping for more than one item. Domestic buyers - we can fit all sorts of things into a Flat Rate Box.

▲ Domestic: We ship USPS Priority or First-Class with delivery confirmation (1-5 day delivery)

▲ International: We ship USPS First-Class (please allow up to three weeks for delivery) with a proof of mailing customs declaration number. Please note that you are responsible for all VAT, import fees and taxes imposed by your country.

Recently the shipping rates with the US Postal Service have gone up a great deal, especially for international shipping. To keep our prices as low as possible, we use basic shipping services, which means there will be NO tracking of your package. We haven't had any trouble with this method in the past, but if you feel strongly about shipping with a tracking number, contact us for a quote. This method is usually 2-3 times as expensive.

▲ Animal Head Vintage is not responsible for lost packages.

▲ We do our best to be accurate in our shipping charges, and are glad to refund any gross overcharges more than a few dollars on shipping.
