About

Authentic vintage & antique clothing, shoes, accessories and jewelry.

Welcome to Age of Mint!

This vintage love-affair started many moons ago when at 15, I handed over my babysitting money in exchange for a 1940s swing jacket with a rhinestone encrusted black velvet collar. I wore that jacket like crazy in high school. Years later, I humorously discovered this to be a maternity piece (the stork label was the giveaway). Two beautiful babies later, I still have this pretty piece in my wardrobe.

I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Illustration from Moore College of Art & Design. After graduation, I spent my days in galleries and designing for the Philadelphia garment industry, but my heart was always in other people's basements and attics. (or dumpsters, and one time a mouse infested barrel, much to the horror of my loved ones)

Naturally, I began providing inspirational pieces to my fellow garment and textile designers, and have been known to sell, barter, or undress and have something I'm wearing spec'd out on site. Anything for the cause!

Thirty years has passed since that first flea market purchase, and my passion for vintage and antique clothing has grown. Owning an online boutique now gives me the opportunity to share my finds worldwide. Age of Mint provides antique and vintage apparel to vintage lovers, and also to costume, garment & textile designers, museum curators, and costumers in the film industry and theater community.

My life-long passion for personal style, fashion history, and curating has led me to selling vintage on Etsy, and I thank you for joining me!

Warm regards,
Cristina

Shipping
Shipping:
We ship several random days a week! If you need your item in a hurry, please contact us through convos, and we will do our best to have your shipment expedited. USPS Express Mail or Fed Ex delivery is available for an additional fee.

U.S. customers:
We ship USPS Priority Mail (14 oz and up) or First Class Mail (under 14 oz).
Both of these services have an estimated 2-3 business day delivery and provide a tracking number, which will be sent to you.

International Buyers:
Packages ship USPS First Class International and USPS Priority International Mail. Priority is required for packages weighing over 3 lbs.
Both services provide a tracking number, which will be sent to you.
Once your package leaves the US, tracking is no longer available on our end until delivery. Most package delays occur when an item is moving slowly through customs.
International buyers, please note that you are responsible for all VAT, import fees and taxes imposed by your country. All customs forms will be filled out in accordance with federal export laws and regulations. Return shipping costs are the responsibility of the buyer.
To our Japanese customers, it is recommended to include your phone number on the customs form.

Insurance:
U.S. buyers, $50.00 of insurance is included with Priority Mail, but not with First Class. Should you require insurance, please contact us at the time of sale. Insurance fees will be required.
International buyers, insurance is not available with First Class International. If you require insurance, you will need to upgrade to Priority International Mail. Please note, some countries do not offer any insurance.

Age of Mint is not responsible for lost, mishandled and delivered-but-stolen packages. All fragile pieces {such as straw hats and beaded handbags} are shipped in sturdy boxes. Hats are sometimes double boxed, as needed. All packages are water resistant, but not waterproof.
If your box is mishandled or sits in the rain and snow, we cannot carry the responsibility. Fortunately, this is a very rare occurrence, but if it happens, we do not issue refunds or store credit. Insurance is always recommended but not required.

We offer combined shipping on multiple items, which will be calculated in the cart. (or see " if shipped with another item" in individual listings)
Refunds and Exchanges
Age of Mint sales are final.
We do not accept returns unless an error was made in the listing. If you feel an item was misrepresented, please contact us to arrange a return. Please note, photographs of the misrepresented item will be requested to process the return. Age of Mint accepts full responsibility for misrepresented items.
We do not offer exchanges or process cancellation requests.
**Age of Mint refund and cancellation policies are in accordance with Etsy policies and US PA state law.

We provide clear photos, precise measurements, and detailed assessments of an item's condition. I am VERY particular when it comes to describing condition, so buy with confidence! Minimal photo editing is used in order to provide accuracy in color and detail. Some colors are more difficult to capture than others, and when this happens, it will be noted in the listing. (neons, reds and purples are the devil)

Please feel free to request additional photos or information prior to purchasing. I have a professionally trained eye for color matching, and can give special attention to helping you decide if a piece might be what you are looking for.

Because of the nature of selling special occasion pieces and costumes, we cannot give consideration to requests if you have had the item for more than 24 hours. Thank you for understanding!

We will do our best to help you with fit inquiries. Numerical sizes vary greatly, both in modern and vintage garments. One modern label's 00 is another shop's 2-4. Because of this, I will estimate a garment's size in XS/S/M/L, and suggest that you compare the measurements against a garment that fits you well. If you'd like further info on how I spec out our garments, please feel free to ask.

Thank you!
Additional policies and FAQs
Reservations:
We are happy to reserve an item for 24 hours. Reserves are only placed when you have decided that beyond a doubt you are making the purchase. Please understand that we do not reserve items if you are only considering a purchase.

Payment Plans:
Yes! We offer flexible layaway plans to help you purchase that piece you've been pining for! We ask for a non-refundable 20% deposit, and the balance is due in 30 days. If you need more time, we can be flexible and work that out up front. Convo us for specifics.
