The Hunt for vintage goodies!

After buying a 1950's house I started to get into vintage items, and that is how BlackForestCake Vintage came to be. I like to rescue cute vintage things.

I have been a shop owner on Etsy since 2006.
My main Etsy shop, blacklilypie, is where I sell my art and handmade dolls.

I also run Trixie and Tilda, a shop that sells plush cat dolls.

Always available to answer questions about items or shipping.
Thanks for looking!

Hi. Welcome to Blackforestcake Vintage. This shop used to sell handmade items I made (dolls and digital downloads) but a few years ago I switched to vintage goods. I still handmake items for my other Etsy shops.

I have three Etsy shops, so if you are curious, please feel free to check them out! (this one)

But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders

Returns and exchange details
If you would like to return an item, please contact me to let me know, then you will be responsible for shipping it back to me. I will gladly refund you once I receive it.
• Please look closely at the shipping options I provide for each item. I offer different services for different types of items.

• I ship from Ottawa Canada, and the prices are set by Etsy when I fill out the weight and dimensions of an object. I do not make extra off of your shipping, it is the cost only.

• Americans, please pay attention to shipping options! Sometimes smaller, lighter items (under 1kg) can be shipped with a Small Packet, which is extremely reliable and cost effective, but does not have tracking.
If you would like tracking, please choose Tracked Packet if it is available.

• If you want something super fast, I can send it with a faster (an more expensive) method. Just contact me for a quote and I will let you know the details.

• If you want to return an item, that is ok! Just send a message saying you would like to return it, then you will be responsible for shipping it back to me, at your own cost. When I receive the undamaged returned item, I will refund the purchase price (without shipping costs). If you are unsure what to do at any time, please contact me and I will guide you.

• Duties / Customs / Import Fees are your responsibility to pay.
