Returns and exchanges
All sales are considered final. If there is a problem with something you've purchased, please CONTACT ME right away. Every problem is slightly different, as are the solutions. Don't write it off as a loss before you talk to me about it.

Please understand that vintage items can often come with imperfections. I do my best to list any flaws in the item descriptions, and would be happy to take extra photos and measurements for you if you are unsure about purchasing. If a small detail goes unnoticed, please be reasonable and remember that I am only human and that the clothing I am offering is often decades old.

Once you have received and worn the item, any repairs or upkeep are your responsibility. The fabric and threads used in these garments are all old, and I have no way of knowing how long something will last. Remember to keep the age of the garment in mind when wearing & washing.

In the case of a refund, I can only give back the cost of the item, doesn't include a refund for the shipping costs.
I accept paypal and google checkout (credit card). Payment is due at time of purchase.
Currently I only have time to ship approx once per week, but the day varies. If you need your item shipped immediately, let me know.

DOMESTIC: Clothing is shipped via priority with delivery confirmation. Insurance is optional, please let me know if you want it along with your paypal information and I can send you an invoice for the additional cost.

Prints and booklets are shipped first class with delivery confirmation.

INTERNATIONAL: Nearly all international packages are shipped First Class (the best rate), which can take up to a few weeks depending on your country and their customs situation.

If you think your package is lost in the mail, please contact me so that I am aware of the issue. Often, the package is just waiting for you at the post office or your postal customs office. If your package is missing and can not be recovered, you will receive store credit for the value of the purchased item(s).

If you can recycle any of the packaging you receive from me, please do!
Additional policies and FAQs
Most garments have not been washed since acquisition. If they have been cleaned, it will be stated in the listing. It is your responsibility to take care of cleaning, and some things might need a bit of airing out. Hanging an item outdoors is the best way to clear out any lingering thrift store aromas. Be careful with vintage clothing! Please look online for guides that will tell you how to clean specific vintage fabrics.

All items are stored in a smoke-free home. I do have a cat and keep my stock away from her, and I also lint roll items before shipping, but sometimes a stray hair might get stuck to an item.

Sizing info: All clothing items are measured flat. To ensure a good fit, it is recommended that you compare measurements of your own clothing to the ones in the listings. That will give you a good idea of what measurements are right for you. If you need any extra measurements, just ask!

Bust = underarm seam to underarm seam, doubled
Shoulder to shoulder: Shoulder seam to shoulder seam (where the sleeve is attached to the body)
Sleeve: Cuff to shoulder seam
Waist: Smallest part of waist, close to natural waist
Hips: Largest part of hip area
Length: Top of shoulder seam to bottom of hem

Color may appear slightly different in person than on the screen, depending on your monitor's settings.

If you have any questions, concerns or ANYTHING, please contact me! It is the best and easiest way for everyone to be satisfied with the transaction. Please remember that being rude or unreasonable is not the way to get what you want. I am a person over here behind the screen!

THANK YOU! I appreciate etsy so much and all of you as well. :)
