Returns and exchanges
I scrutinize my products ruthlessly and make every effort to note any problems. These are vintage items, however, and it's possible I missed something. I only accept returns if the item is remarkably not as advertised, and shipping is your responsibility. Refund will be issued when I receive the item.

Because items shipped internationally are not shipped with delivery confirmation, I'm not able to offer a refund or take returns. Sorry! If you'd like to retain this option, the shipping would be many times higher than listed. I'm happy to do that, just be aware.
I generally only accept PayPal, but am willing to make an exception if your case is, well, exceptional. Just convo me and we can work something out.
I ship everything via USPS Priority Mail, with delivery confirmation. If an international rate isn't quoted, convo me and I'll figure it out. For new listings, I've started posting a general international rate. This is a conservative estimate based on the weight of the item and packaging. I'll do my best to ship items in the most economical way, and if there's a difference of more than a dollar or two, I'll refund it.

I've put shipping options for some of the most common countries I find I have customers and visitors from. If you're in another European country or just want to double check that "Everywhere else" option, send me a message. Chances are the shipping is a bit less, I just have that on the off chance someone from some further-off country is ordering. I'm happy to look up the rates for your location.
Additional policies and FAQs
I'm generally amenable to conversation, so if you have any questions, just ask!
