About

Finding the Fit

On a winding professional path that detoured down side routes every five years: I just couldn't lock on a career with the right fit. Decades of sun-chasing travel found me circling back to my nostalgic New England hometown to reunite with my high school honey. Our passion for auctions and flea markets helped us to decorate our blended home - and the fun of buying vintage turned into obsession.

When our home filled up (and up, and up), I was inspired to sell our surplus online. I humbly set up a vintage shop on Etsy, with a goal to sell 50 items the first year: I sold over 500.

With the success of Brightwood Lane, our inventory ballooned because we strive to stock 800+ items on our virtual shelves. Etsy is the perfect marketplace for us, with its boutique feel and quality control that suits our merchandise of quirky, collectible and quaint.

In 2014, we opened a brick-and-mortar antique store in our town. From this base, our online collection is on display for local visitors - instead of boxed in storage. Admittedly, I'm bad at delegating - still handling just about all aspects of retail: purchase, research, photography, writing, merchandising, marketing, shipping and accounting (blech).

Our coastal New England shop has seasonal foot traffic so we are busiest there in the warm weather, but Etsy is the 24/7 shop that never closes and keeps our goals afloat.

Thank for stopping by Brightwood Lane, where the online shelves are continually restocking with unique vintage home accessories. We strive to present quality, timeworn objects that brought some beauty or usefulness to generations past.

We love items that were "MADE IN THE USA" because there are so many imported items stocking the shelves of the box store chains. With lovely vintage items ready to dress your home, we hope that Brightwood Lane becomes a trusted resource for kindred shoppers.

Looking for something in particular? Let us know what you are on the hunt for: we may already have it in our offline personal collection or we will keep your request in mind while we are on the road picking and auction bidding.

Payment
PayPal and major credit cards are accepted for payment through Etsy Direct Checkout.

If we are informed of any processing delays, we reserved the right to hold or cancel the transaction and relist the item if the payment is denied by the credit processing agent.

Brightwood Lane specializes in vintage items: we do our best to describe, measure and photograph the unique pieces as accurately as possible so that the buyer is aware of the condition of the merchandise. Once the buyer agrees to purchase, the sale is considered to be final. Please read the descriptions carefully and contact us with any questions or requests.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

RESERVING AN ITEM :
Reserves may be placed on the item and will be held for 48 hours unless a different time span is requested via convo by a buyer. We reserve the right to inform the buyer, remove the RESERVE and reopen the listing at any time.

PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE A RESERVE ITEM INTENDED FOR ANOTHER CUSTOMER. If you are interested in a reserved item, we will be happy to take your backup request as a second optional reserve should the first customer's reserve be deemed extinct.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

COUPONS:
Discount coupons will be honored and applied during the checkout process. If a coupon has expired or did not apply properly, the buyer may contact us for price adjustment. We reserve the right to set the expiry date for offered coupons.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

BUYER'S REMORSE :
We usually ship VERY QUICKLY so the window for cancellation is very short. Once a package has been turned over to the shipper it is considered to be a FINAL SALE. Refunds are processed through Etsy Direct Checkout or PayPal, whichever method the buyer used for the original transaction.
Shipping
We strive to ship purchased items ASAP - usually within 1 business day after payment confirmation. Tracking codes are provided to every buyer at the time of shipment. We normally do not require signature for package delivery unless its deemed appropriate for high value items or requested in advance by the buyer.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

RATES:
The shipping quote is for USPS First Class, Priority or Parcel service to locations on the continental USA only. We have to cover our cost to the longest distance, so if there is a shipping overage of $2 or more we may refund the overage (unless special packing material was required to ensure safe delivery).

Overnight shipping requests may be accommodated for an additional fee and quoted prior to transmittal.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

LARGE and/or FRAGILE PARCELS:
Heavy and unusually large/heavy items OR merchandise that is fragile may be shipped via a more economical method such as UPS GROUND or FEDEX GROUND.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

BOOKS:
Book sets will ship separately as USPS MEDIA MAIL to take advantage of the economical rates, which can take 2-9 days for delivery.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

INTERNATIONAL:
Non-domestic shipping quotes are happily provide upon request if not already included in the listing information. Shipping viability will be at our discretion in determining the practicality for each item based upon size, weight and fragility.

International customs/import duty is the responsibility of the recipient and should be considered prior to purchase and shipment authorization. Customs Declaration forms will state the purchase price of the contents as the declared value. We will not falsify item value at buyer request since this negates our actual loss on an insurance claim should the package be undelivered or damaged in transit.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

PACKAGING:
We package carefully, using recycled materials and containers. That usually means bubble wrap, shrink wrap, styrofoam, foam peanuts, newspaper and cardboard. Breakables are handled with strict attention and are insured automatically by us if the value of the item exceeds $25.00.
Refunds and Exchanges
We hope that you love your purchase as much as we do! Vintage items often have small flaws that are intrinsic to the preowned and aged nature. Etsy allows sellers to post 5 photos for each listing so we strive to depict as many angles as possible for the true representation of merchandise condition with approximate measurements and descriptions.

SALES ARE FINAL :
Decorative items are purchased "As Is" and non-refundable. We do our best to communicate any unique characteristics prior to shipment, but once the item leaves our hands, we transfer ownership permanently. It's your choice to love it, or resell it.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

BUYER'S REMORSE :
We usually ship VERY QUICKLY so the window for cancellation is very short. Once a package has been turned over to the shipper it is considered to be a FINAL SALE. Refunds are processed through Etsy Direct Checkout or PayPal, whichever method the buyer used for the original transaction.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

WEARABLES :
Clothing and hats that are intended as wearable (where fit may be an issue) may be returned for refund, however the buyer agrees to pay the initial shipping fee as well as the return shipping. Buyer must notify us via Etsy convo within 24 hours of receiving shipment. When returned, the item must be in identical condition as purchased: repair or cleaning cost to restore item to original condition will be deducted from the refund. Accessories such as handbags, scarves and jewelry do not qualify for wearable item refund. Please Convo prior to purchase if you think that fit might be an issue so we can convey more accurate measurements.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

DAMAGES:
If a package and contents are damaged while in the hands of the shipping agent, the case should be reported immediately to us via Etsy Convo.

Digital photographs of the item and the packaging condition are required to support any damage claim and should be sent via Etsy Convo or email. Replacement or remuneration options will be determined only after photos are supplied so that we can file the proper insurance claim requirements or document the inventory loss for our tax records.

If we have a similar item, we may be able to exchange it, but vintage items are usually unique, so that is not guaranteed. We'll do our best to adjust the transaction accordingly. If the items is deemed to be repairable, we reserve the right to request a return of the item prior to refund (at our expense). If the item was broken beyond repair or reasonable valuation, we may not require the item return. Refunds are processed through Etsy Direct Checkout or PayPal, whichever method the buyer used for the original transaction.
