Vintage Love

Hello from one vintage obsessed gal to another! I'm proud to offer a hand picked selection of vintage treasures. From classic, feminine pieces to the more daring designer finds, each item is selected with an eye for historical relevance and modern wearability.

A thirty year love affair with vintage clothing has led me to a full time life of finding new homes for vintage beauties, from dresses to jewelry and everything in between.

As the owner and gal-of-all-work, I'm responsible for sourcing, cleaning, sometimes mending, photographing and shipping all of the items you see in the shop. I'm also the customer service department, so feel free to send me a note if you have any questions, need help finding the perfect piece or just want to say hello.

Happy shopping!

Hello and welcome! I am proud to feature select vintage clothing and accessories from across the Northeast US. Each item is carefully chosen for both aesthetics and wearability.

EACH AND EVERY ITEM HAS BEEN HAND WASHED OR DRY CLEANED and is ready to wear. Your item will be ready to wear right out of the box, no extra cleaning necessary!

We take great pride in our shop and guarantee that all items are 100% authentic vintage. Each piece is thoroughly researched and we are very fortunate to have a best friend who is a costume maker and fashion historian. If you have any questions regarding the provenance of an item, please feel free to ask!

If you have any questions, please contact me through Etsy.

Privacy

This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.
Information I Collect

To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information if you contact me directly via email.

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

-as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfill your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
-when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time
-if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

-I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
-Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies like USPS. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
-Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
-Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 2 years.

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

-Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
-Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
-Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
-Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Kim Hobby, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at archetypevintage [!at] gmail.com, through Etsy "Conversations, or if you are in the EU, through my street address, which you will find on your customer receipt.
See this Seller Handbook article for a sample privacy policy you can customize for your shop.

Frequently asked questions

Are your items vintage or can I custom order a size?

Everything sold in the shop is vintage and there's only one available. All measurements are given to ensure accurate sizing and what you see is exactly what you get.

Can I reserve an item?

Yes, items that have been in the shop for over 24 hours and are priced over $100 may be placed on hold for 24 hours without a deposit. Please contact me if you'd like to put something on hold.

Do you offer layaway?

Yes! If you'd like to put something on layaway, I simply ask for a 20% nonrefundable deposit to hold the item. The remaining balance is to be paid within 2 months and the dollar amount and frequency of payments is up to you. Please contact me if you'd like more information.

Do you offer express / overnight shipping?

Yes, all items ship the next business day but if you need expedited shipping, please contact the shop for a quote.

Do you accept returns?

Yes, items may be returned within 3 days of receipt for STORE CREDIT ONLY minus the original shipping cost. Return shipping charges are the responsibility of the buyer. If you wish to return an item, please contact me for approval before shipping it. All items returned must including tracking.

How fast can I expect my order?

Most US domestic orders (excluding heavier items like winter coats) are shipped USPS Priority Mail and should arrive 2 to 3 business days. They will include tracking. International orders ship First Class and can take anywhere from 2 to 3 weeks depending upon the destination and customs processing.
