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), and 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. Having 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 costume 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. Express Mail delivery is available.

U.S.Buyers:
I ship USPS Priority Mail (13 oz and up) or First Class Mail (under 13 oz).
Both of these services come with a tracking number, which will be provided to you.

International Buyers:
We ship using USPS First Class International. USPS Priority International Mail is required for packages weighing over 3 lbs.
All International buyers will be provided with a tracking number.
Once your package leaves the US, tracking is no longer available on our end. Please note that you may incur customs charges / fees from your local government. Age of Mint is not responsible for these fees, nor for reshipping charges if a package goes unclaimed at customs and is returned to us. Age of Mint is not responsible for packages lost in transit.

Insurance:
US buyers, $50.00 of insurance is always included with First Priority Mail, but not with lighter packages shipping First Class.
International buyers, insurance is not included, as First Class International does not offer insurance. If you would like insurance, so that you are covered in case of loss or damage, you will need to upgrade to Priority International Mail.

We offer combined shipping on multiple items (see "If shipped with another item" in individual listings).

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. If your box is mishandled and crushed, we do not carry the responsibility. Fortunately, this is a very rare occurrence, but if it happens, we do not issue refunds or store credit.
Refunds and Exchanges
Age of Mint sales are final.
We work very hard to provide clear detailed photos, precise measurements, and assessments of an item's condition. We use minimal photo editing in order to provide you with great accuracy in color and detail. Garments have been hand laundered or professionally dry cleaned {except for pieces with intricate details such as beading or fragile lace).
We do not accept returns for sizing / fit, nor do we take returns for reasons such as color matching, fabrics not being exactly as imagined etc...
If something should slip by us regarding an item's condition, please send a convo as soon as you receive the item, and we will do our best to make you a happy customer. 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!

Please feel free to request additional photos or information prior to purchasing. I have a trained eye for color matching, and can give special attention to helping you decide if a piece might be what you are looking for. At present, we do not have a model, but will do our best to help you with fit inquiries.

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 purchasing the piece. Please understand that we do not reserve items if you are only considering a purchase.

LAYAWAY:
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. Convo us for specifics.
