We consider all Christy Kramer Vintage sales final. However, we understand that sometimes rules must be bent. Items will not be accepted for return for color or size descrepancy, so please choose carefully. Return cases are reviewed on a case by case basis, and subject to approval. Approved Return Cases are compensated in the following manner, please do not purchase if you are not comfortable with these conditions:

1. Item must be grossly misrepresented in the listing and over $50 in value.
2. Return Request must be made within 36 hours of delivery receipt confirmation.
3. Returned items must be shipped back within 7 days of original purchase, with delivery confirmation. This shipping cost will be at the customer's expense.
4. Original shipping costs will not be refunded.
5. Returns are issued in store credit only.
6. We reserve the right to refuse any Return Request.


To ensure your item is exactly what you want, please double-check and compare the listing measurements with your own measurements for accurate sizing, and if possible view the photos on more than one computer monitor, as color settings vary. We are in the process of adding Pantone Color references to all listings to further assist in deciphering any color confusion.

Please note that vintage sizing and modern sizing are not equal. It is best to use the flat measurments provided on each listing and the following measuring guidelines to determine a proper fit, unless otherwise noted on the listing:

Lay a modern garment, similar in nature to the vintage one you are considering, flat and measure as described below:

Shoulder: shoulder seam to shoulder seam, taken at back.
Sleeve: shoulder seam down to edge of cuff/sleeve.
Bust: armpit to armpit, taken from front, then doubled.
Waist: seam to seam, taken at smallest part of garment just above hips, then doubled
Hips: seam to seam, taken at hips, generally 7 to 9 inches below waist, then doubled
Length: from highest point on garment to lowest point.


It is important to note that all of our vintage garments are measured this way, and measuring a garment you currently own in a similar fashion, should result in a proper fit.

If you are unsure and have a question about the size or appearance of an item, please let us know. We would be happy to provide you with any additional images and/or measurements you may need.


It is important to us that you love your Christy Kramer Vintage purchase. If you have any other questions or concerns, please message us before purchasing. We are happy to help.

FAQ's

Q. Can I Reserve or Hold an item?
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

A. Yes! We are happy to put your favorite item on hold/reserve for 24 hours at no charge. If you require additional time, please contact us to set-up a non-refundable deposit. As the Extended Hold Deposit is non-refundable, and our Free Hold Service takes the item out of rotation, we ask that you do not place holds on items that you are not 100% positive you will purchase. We also ask that you do not buy other customer's reserved items. If you see an item on Reserve and you have a genuine interest in purchasing, please let us know and we will contact you should the reserve fall through and the item becomes available for purchase.


Q. I see an item that I abosolutely LOVE, but it's on Reserve, what's an Etsian to do?
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -- -

A. Let us know! We may have another item similar to the one your heart desires waiting in the wings as one of our upcoming inventory updates. We can let you know if the Reserve status falls through and the item becomes available for purchase. OR! We can set up a Custom Ticket for you and get to searching for one just like it, or as close as possible, just for you. There are many options at the end of that Do Not Buy tunnel. :)



Q. I filled up my cart with glorious items from your shop, and my bill is way high. I know if I let some of them go, they will be gone forever, and I cannot afford to pay the entire amount today. Do you have a credit plan for vintage fashionistas on a budget?
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

A. No. Unfortunately, we do not have a credit plan at this time. But we have something that may cheer you up and allow you to keep all of your fabulous finds! Let us introduce you to the Christy Kramer Vintage Layaway Plan. It has saved many a one-of-a-kind-item, filled-to-the-brim, oh-my-god-my-total-is-how-much? shopping carts from the brink of extinction, and subsequently given some closet expansion projects a nudge in the necessary direction. Here are the details:

1.) Your Christy Kramer Vintage order total must be over $250, before shipping.
2.) You will be required to put down a non-refundable deposit.
3.) Your bill will be broken down into manageable installments, per our layaway agreement.
4.) Should you fail to pay the balance, you forfeit all previously made payments and your loved items will be returned to active inventory.
5.) Upon completion of payment, your entire order will be shipped, and your layaway account will be closed.

If this is of interest to you, and you find yourself in such a situation, please convo us to arrange for Layaway and we will work out the payment plan to best suit your needs.



Q. Do you offer Gift Certificates to your shop?
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

A. Our Gift Certificates and redemption process are currently under construction. Please check back soon.




Q. I came to your shop and I don't see what I'm looking for. Do you suppose you could find something just for me, list it as a Reserve, and not sell it to anyone else, ever, ever, ever?
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

A. Say whaa? You came to the shop and didn't find what you were looking for? Please accept our apologies. We would love to find what it is your vintage-fashion-loving-heart is searching for. All you need to do is submit a Custom Item Request with some details on what it is we're hunting to get the ball rolling. There are a few minor stipulations that come along with Custom Requests, they are as follows:

1.) An initial Search Fee/Reserve Deposit will be invoiced upon acceptance of your Custom Item Request.
2.) Custom Item Requests cannot be put into Layaway and must be paid for within 3 days of listing notification.
3.) Should your Custom Item linger in the shop, for say...a week, your item will be taken off Reserve Status and entered into our active inventory for any and all to purchase. All deposits will be forfeited should this occur.


Have another question and don't see it listed? Convo us right away, and we will find the answer for you!
