About

bycinbyhand vintage... Finding Good Homes for Good Vintage Since 2006

Cin - bycinbyhand's owner, likes great design, color and solid function. An element of whimsy doesn't hurt either. Antiques and vintage have heart and soul... and then we bring it into our lives.... well, it's just more than more stuff to dust. Cin believes this having met so many of her inventory's former owners or their kids and hearing the stories, sharing the memories. Next book should be about some of those. : )

Because bycinbyhand's stock is hand-picked by Cin, your purchase will likely come with a little story about its previous home.

Thanks for shopping with Cin and bycinbyhand vintage.

Shop policies

Last updated on March 22, 2016
Convo convo convo. PLEASE feel free to ask any questions you have about items via convo. Happy to provided extra measurements and pics as you need. : )

All items listed here are in the condition as noted in the listing, and, unless otherwise noted, have been cleaned.

Pantone color equivalents of items in daylight are provided as basis of comparison as phones and monitors are different from device to device.

You purchase, we assume you've read the listing and policies.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Paypal is preferred. Credit card via the etsy system is cool too!
Shipping
Order fulfillment is within 1-5 days of purchase Monday to Saturday during business hours. It depends on the item and its packaging; we shoot for orders going out 1-2 days of purchase.

We ship USPS Priority Mail or USPS First Class for domestic shipments. All international orders go out by USPS and Direct Link, our international shipper. Their shipping times are similar to 1ST CLASS USPS INTL (up to 8 weeks for some packages and this includes planes, your country's customs and seasonal delays).

If you need to meet a special holiday deadline, please factor in shipping times in advanced. We will do our best to help you meet any deadlines, add gift-wrapping and/or card but cannot know this without YOUR reaching out to us first. Please convo with questions so we can figure out alternatives and give you options. Otherwise, we are not responsible for an item not received within your expedited time frame.

Expedited shipping will cost more, the listing shipping rate amended to reflect that.

International customers: parcels are marked "merchandise." Marking a parcel as "gift" is forbidden, as is falsifying the price on a customs form. We will not do this. You, the customer, are responsible for any tax, import and processing fees incurred by your government's customs not bycinbyhand vintage. To get an idea as to what you might be taxed, here's a way to find out, country by country: http://www.dutycalculator.com

International customers, in most cases any delay is due to package being delayed in customs processing in your country. We hope you'll make every effort to follow up with your carrier. Either way, we communicate, we work it out. We send a convo immediately after we've sent your package, with package # for tracking so all parties are clear when it shipped out. That said, your Etsy feedback lets us know it's landed safely in YOUR hands, especially if you're outside the US. Thanks! : )

Finally, because we recycle packaging materials, shipping price may differ and we issue appropriate overage refund if that difference is at least a $1 more than listed shipping price; you will be informed of this when we convo with shipping details upon return from the post office.
Refunds and Exchanges
NO RETURNS/REFUNDS for buyer's remorse, issues of fit, or 'rental.' We're real clear with descriptions, measurements and issues, if any, and are happy to provide additional info, answer your questions. Convo convo convo before purchasing.

Most of our vintage items have been cleaned (noted in listings) but if not (also noted in listings) may need to be cleaned prior to wear and/or require alterations for proper fit. Please go by measurements for sizing for an idea of fit. Pantone color equivalents of items in daylight are provided as basis of comparison as phones and computer screens are different from device to device.

In the rare case of a return (for gross misrepresentation of item), this is our return policy:

Returns must be made within three (3) days of your receipt of an item AND you must initiate it via Etsy convo within 24 hours of receipt of that item. Return shipping costs are the responsibility of the buyer and just as we are responsible for a package until it reaches you, you are responsible for your return package until it is delivered to us. Please keep that in mind when choosing a return shipping service - tracking and/or delivery confirmation, perhaps insurance is strongly suggested. Refund will be made via original payment method within three (3) business days of our receipt of the returned item. We will refund the full purchase price of the item, minus actual original outbound shipping.

Any return sent without following these steps (i.e. first convo'ing us and so forth) will be refused upon receipt and returned to buyer. Most important, to be eligible for refund, item must be returned in the exact condition it was received. If any hang tags are attached to your item, the item must be returned with them still attached by their original attachment method and in their original position/condition. No odors, perfumes, stains, wear.

The only exception to the above return rules is for buyers in EU countries where the EU Directive on Consumer Rights is in effect. In this case, a buyer will have the right to return an item within fourteen (14) days of receipt in accordance with the specifics of the above-referenced directive.

Please remember that we are a micro business - each return significantly impacts our bottom line. Convo convo convo.

Disclaimer for vintage shoes: Vintage shoes - especially from the 60s and 70s - can be made from man-made materials have what we consider an inherent vice (a flaw which might worsen over time): the soles are glued rather than stitched. This glue can degrade with time and the soles *could* come away from the uppers. It's unpredictable for us the seller as it depends on the manufacturer, the type of glue, etc. To guarantee that this never happens, we recommend the buyer takes the precautionary action of having the soles RE-GLUED prior to wearing.

That said, we do not accept returns/give refunds on vintage footwear as they might have an inherent vice because of the materials natural, POSSIBLE deterioration, i.e. glues, etc. THANK YOU.
Additional policies and FAQs
Measurements are taken with garment buttoned/zipped, lying flat on a table. Double them to compare to your body. Always compare the flat measurements given to YOUR similar garment.

We photograph in daylight but because monitors are different from device to device, we also provide Pantone color equivalents in our listings.

We provide lots of photos in our listing, collages of details and/or special issues/features as there are any. Please do not hesitate to ask for more as you might need. Convo convo convo.
