strike your fancy! rare and original creations & vintage

I opened an Etsy shop back in 2006 (early days!) and pioneered the huge trend of fanciful, fashion-forward headgear.
Our return policy: An item may be shipped back at buyers' expense for a refund as long as it arrives back to our store within five days of the original ship date, and in the same condition as it was shipped: unworn, with tags attached. If an item is received later than five days from the original ship date, then it will be considered worn, and will not qualify for a refund. Custom items created on request are not eligible for refund. Items shipped internationally cannot be refunded.

Welcome to my shop! I treat each item with care, and try to describe each fully. Most items are either vintage or made with vintage materials, so will reflect imperfections with age. If you receive an item, and I have not noted a flaw in the listing, just let me know.
