About DottieXO

On Etsy since 2009

Love of the 50s and diners turns into apron biz!

Hi thanks for stopping in. I really appreciate YOU and all of my wonderful customers over the years. I love you all!

I have been here on Etsy since 2009, making the same style of aprons from the very beginning. I have always loved retro 50's diners, so I thought I would make aprons that kind of look like waitress uniforms, or counter girls. If you're old enough, you remember the sandwich counter at the drug store, the old ice cream shops and cool donut shops. I am old enough to remember that stuff, but I'm not old! I'm not.

I have the world's best customers ever, and many of my customers have more than one of my aprons. About a half dozen of my customers own over 50 aprons, and a couple of them have over 70. Awesome, right?

Thank you all for stopping in and I appreciate all of you I really do.

I accept Paypal or Direct checkout with a credit card. If you have not shopped on Etsy before, here is a little explanation on how to checkout with direct checkout:

If you don’t have a paypal account you can still pay through Paypal using your credit or debt card. If you are new to Etsy or Paypal you can find more information here:


I ship as soon as possible, usually within 12 - 48 hours of completing the order, and once payment is received.

CANADA: Please note that shipping time to Canada can sometimes be as long as 15 business days, or 3 weeks.

NETHERLANDS: Please note that shipping time to Netherlands can sometimes be as long as 6 weeks.

INTERNATIONAL: Sometimes it can take as much as 6 weeks to arrive in certain countries. I have heard Italy, Russia, Canada, and some others sometimes take longer than usual, but not always. Just be aware of that, keep your fingers crossed, and I will too.

DUTIES: Any duties or fees your country's postal service requires is your responsibility to pay, so please be aware of this if it is applicable to you.

All items are packed with care and sent by USPS unless specified otherwise in the listing. First Class usually takes 3 to 5 business days to arrive in the United States, priority take 2-3 days. International orders are sent by First Class Mail and may take 1 to 3 weeks to arrive. I do not send with confirmation, to save myself, and you, postage cost. I will however, ship with delivery confirmation if you request it.

If for some strange reason, your package never arrives, I will take care of you -don't worry. Either with a refund, or a replacement. I have had this happen once, so I guess it does happen.

The United States Postal Service is pretty consistent and reliable, but please keep in mind that these are estimated transit times. I cannot be held responsible for shipment delays after I've delivered your package to the post office. If you would like to upgrade for faster shipping please contact me before placing your order.

When you place an order for more than one item from my shop, you will be charged the full shipping amount of the first item and charged the secondary shipping price for each additional item. I try to be fair in my prices. Please feel free to contact me if you intend to purchase a large quantity of listings and are concerned about the shipping expense.
