Do you enjoy waiting for 2 months and never receiving your purchase, sending numerous emails never to receive a response, and filing disputes?? Well then, look no further, this is the seller for you!! I enjoy talking to a wall as much as the next guy but these people have perfected the art of silence like nobodys business. If this was an Olympic event USA would win another gold. One star is giving them too much credit but I couldn't leave zero. SERIOUSLY, DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THESE PEOPLE. IT'S SAD WHEN YOU LOSE TRUST IN DOING BUSINESS THROUGH ETSY BECAUSE OF AN INCOMPETENT SELLER.

This seller NEVER shipped this item, and NEVER responded to repeated inquiries about it. They also tried keeping my monies until paypal got involved. Very Unfortunate and dissapointing transaction

Clova's Vintage brings handpicked vintage and antique pieces for you and your home. Each is chosen for it's beauty, quality and uniqueness. If we like it, we bring it to you. Our shop is in our home with a photography corner, work desk and storage right here in easy reach.

Clova's is named after my grandmother. She was a remarkable woman who knew the value of things and could find uses for them through the life cycle of the item. The world was not always disposable. Beautiful is beautiful whether it was in 1955 or in 2015. We hope we honor her lifestyle and contentment with her world in our lives and our shops. Now my granddaughter has arrived and she is named after her Great Grandmother.

We do continue to have day jobs. I work in behavioral health with adolescents and John works as a singer/songwriter and in customer service. Hopefully we will one day not need our day jobs, but for now I truly enjoy the youth and John enjoys the social aspect of his work.

We appreciate our customers and love to hear from them. Please feel free to drop a line.

I have an arts and crafts supply shop now too, ThriftyCraftSupplyCo.

Clova's Vintage is not responsible for damage during shipment. If an item is damaged or lost, we do require an insurance claim to be filed with the USPS.
Additional policies and FAQs
Due to the prohibitive cost of dry cleaning, items which require this have NOT been dry cleaned. It would raise the price of the item significantly. As the cost of dry cleaning varies greatly based on geographical location of our customers, it may be more reasonable for them to have this done. Also, if we fear an item which is washable may run or incur any other damage from laundering here, we do not wash so as to prevent ruining a wonderful piece.

In an effort to remain green and responsible, we minimize packaging as often as possible. Also, if packing materials are necessary to insure the item arrives safely, we will utilize re-used or re-purposed materials when possible. Each of us can reduce, reuse and recycle.
