This is a fab shirt! And furthermore the shop owner was more than helpful with postage especially as bad weather had hit the US at that time. She couldn't have been nicer. Highly recommend this seller.

About

You don't need more stuff. You need better stuff.

Stuff that’s handpicked with love. Stuff that you’re excited to own. Stuff that will last you for decades to come. We want to be the store that finds you your favorite stuff. The stuff that becomes part of your permanent collection. The stuff that won’t get donated to the thrift store, or sold on Craigslist, or thrown away.

At Dovetail, we believe in forever pieces. We believe in conscious shopping habits and careful accumulation. We believe in moving away from disposable consumerism and a dependance on outsourced manufacturing, exploitative labor, and cheap products. We believe that a designer label doesn’t equal quality. We believe in supporting local businesses and replacing factory-made goods with handcrafted ones. We believe in healing the local economy by supporting budding artists and entrepreneurs. We believe in partnering with–not competing with–our neighbors and coming together as a community to make great things happen.

That’s why we stock the store with handcrafted or vintage goods. That’s it. Everything at Dovetail has been either handmade right here in Chicago/the USA or salvaged from an estate sale, flea market, thrift store, or yard sale. Healing the economy starts with you and how you spend your money. To learn more about our partnerships with local artists and designers, check out www.dovetailchicago.com.

Payment
We understand that you want to shop around. Feel free to browse through as many items as you'd like! If something catches your eye and ends up in your cart, we would appreciate it if you could pay for that item within 72 hours of purchase.

If you reserve an item, we kindly request that you purchase the item within 72 hours. If we do not receive your payment within 72 hours, the reserve will be removed. If you absolutely need an item and need to extend your reserve, convo us and we'll try to work something out.

If you have any questions about payments, please convo us before you check out.
Shipping
FURNITURE:
Unless otherwise stated in listing description, shipping charges must be adjusted for your area. Please email for shipping cost prior to purchase. Do not use etsy's shipping calculator as it does not work for larger items such as furniture. Smaller items that can ship UPS will have set shipping cost listed in description and do not need to be adjusted (and will state such in the description). Be sure to scroll to the bottom of the listing for shipping notes on each piece.

AGAIN, DO NOT RELY ON ETSY'S SHIPPING CALCULATOR - IT DOES NOT APPLY TO OUR SHIPMENTS. EMAIL FOR SHIPPING QUOTES INSTEAD.

Local pickup is available in Chicago.

ALL OTHER ITEMS:
Items will be shipped on Thursdays via USPS. If you would us to include insurance and confirmation, please convo us before you check out so that we include the extra amount to your shipping rate. Also, please convo us if you have any questions about shipping or if you'd prefer that we use a different service, such as FedEx or UPS.

International orders will be shipped first class, no tracking. If you would like tracking, please convo us. It costs an extra $12.95 and we'd rather not charge you if you don't want it. However, we are not responsible for untracked items that are lost in the mail.
Refunds and Exchanges
Due to the fact that we're selling either handmade or used, one-of-a-kind merchandise, we are unable to accept returns. However, if you feel that we've grossly misrepresented an item, let's talk! Send us a convo and we can work out a return if you pay for shipping. In these cases, we will refund you the cost of the item, minus the shipping and any PayPal fees.

If you have any additional questions about our refund policy, please convo us before checking out.
Additional policies and FAQs
We strive to include only pristine merchandise in our shop and represent it as accurately as possible. If an item has flaws, we will photograph any blemishes and describe them to the best of our ability.
