On Etsy since 2013

Getting a Vintage Shop with Curious Inventory Up to Full Steam

CuriosityShopper.com originally started out as a family-run online outlet for Victorian Era antiques. Over time it has evolved into an eclectic online shopping experience that not only continues to cater to Victorian Era enthusiasts, but also Neo-Victorian aficionados. Our own Curiosity Shopper Crew, consisting of Tom and Sarah Smith, has become adept at creative crafting of custom Neo-Victorian props and décor. Now throw in a curious mix of vintage novelties and natural oddities. Mix in a substantial "Crafter's Lab" that provides unique supplies for the machinations of makers and Steampunk inventors, and Voilà!...you have the essence of CuriosityShopper.com. We're still family-run and we love to keep our shoppers guessing what intriguing curiosity will show up in our shop next. It's not what you see, but what you imagine you see that makes you creative!

Returns and exchange details
REFUNDS:
We refund the purchase amount only. Shipping on either end is not refunded. We will gladly exchange items but new shipping will apply. Custom work is non-refundable. If there is a design problem with the custom item, we will rework it or give you a credit. Please contact us regarding custom work.

RETURNS:
Returns and subsequent refunds are provided at our discretion. If for some reason you are unhappy with your purchase please contact us within 5 days of receipt to request a refund. Returns shipped without prior arrangement and open Etsy conversations (Etsy messages) to establish our agreement for the reason for the return will not be accepted and a refund will not be processed. We do not offer order cancellations or a "cooling off period" during which a buyer may change his or her mind and expect to receive a refund. Please note that we do not offer a return and refund option for every reason. For example, we do not offer a guaranty of fit for any of the vintage eyewear we offer in our shop. Eyewear is listed with dimensions and offered for collectability only; fit is the sole responsibility of the buyer. We can not offer any guaranty that any of the antique or vintage items purchased are compatible with any private project, so we do not offer refunds and returns based on incompatibility with a private project. If a return is agreed upon, purchased items must be returned in the original condition in which they were sent within 7 days of the delivery of the item(s). Late returns will be unopened and refused and returned to sender. Insurance is required for all returns. Uninsured returns will not be accepted. No returns on custom items. We will rework the item or you will have a credit.
Payment
PAYMENTS:
Direct Checkout and Paypal at time of purchase.

If you are going to pay with a credit card via Paypal you do not have to sign up with Paypal. All you need to do is follow the links to Paypal. After you have made your payment they will not save your information.
Shipping
SHIPPING:
Items are generally shipped USPS First Class or Parcel Select for items under $100. We ship USPS First Class insured for orders over $100 and International Shipping is generally sent USPS Priority. Items of any value may be insured and upgraded to expedited shipping at our discretion. We try to ship in-stock items within 72 hours of receiving payment - 3 to 5 business days is the average.

NOTE: If you would like other shipping arrangements (Express, Overnight, UPS or FEDEX) please contact us before purchasing.

If you make a purchase that ships to an international location (a location outside the United States of America,) you, the buyer, are responsible for all fees including duties, taxes, VAT, customs and other charges for items shipped. It is each buyer's sole obligation and responsibility to be aware of, to comply with, and to bear all relevant import duties, taxes, VAT, customs and other fees charged by buyer's local government and/or tax authority. CuriosityShopper online shop will ship all packages with the full value of the goods declared. Buyer understands and agrees that CuriosityShopper online shop shall have no obligation or responsibility for any import duties, taxes, VAT, customs, shipping or other charges for the items shipped. In the event that a customer refuses to accept a shipment due to import duty charges, and the item is returned to CuriosityShopper, CuriosityShopper shall be under no obligation to refund the whole or any portion of the purchase price or shipping cost of the item incurred by the buyer. CuriosityShopper will offer to ship the item again at the sole cost to the buyer.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please note that most items sold are vintage, which means that the item is 20+ years old and has generally been loved before. We commit to do our very best to note wear to vintage items in the description and often provide close-up photos hi-lighting areas of excessive wear. Posted photos are large and defined so be sure to click the magnifier icon in the corner of photos to get a better view of items when curiosity shopping. We truly wish to avoid circumstances that would lead a buyer to feel misled in a purchase.
Privacy
This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.
This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

Information I Collect:
To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order of jewelry, for example), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It:
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest toimprove my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure:
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention:
I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 10 years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU:
I do not store or process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and/or other jurisdictions.

Your Rights:
If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:
Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
