I did not receive the white lid. Could you please send it under separate cover? Should I pay or you? I absolutely love the piece and even more so when I get the lid.

Arrived faster than I expected (from Estonia to Hong Kong in about a week). Colour of the photo of listing is true to the colour of the actual spool I received. Very pleased.

About

Vintage clothes, decor and cutlery with history from me to you

Hello everyone!

I'm Mariann, I am from Estonia and I am currently 26 years old.

Having grown up during the Soviet regime I am one of the few young people who has seen both the oppression of a regime and the uplifting freedom that has followed after its fall.

I find joy in everything old and vintage specifically from my childhood in the late Soviet era, be it books, photos, dishes, cups, clothes, jewelry. Soviet era items are funky and very unique. They're simple with a touch of elegance, they're a well kept secret...

I opened my store here in Etsy because I want to share with you all the treasures that I've gathered from my travels from all around Eastern Europe.

Have fun shopping, if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to write to me!

Shipping
NB!! ALL U.S. ORDERS!!! As of Oct 1st USPS does not track international registered mail from over 120 countries around the world and that is also why you cannot track your order.

b) http://faq.usps.com/?articleId=1437076354655

1) What are the shipping fees to my country?

Shipping fees go up the more an item weighs. The weight of each item should be listed in its respective description. You can calculate your shipping estimate by using the following table.

Shipping for the European Union:

1-249 grams: 6 € (5 € with another item)
250-499 grams: 8.5 € (7 € with another item)
500-999 grams: 13 € (10€ with another item)
1000-1999 grams: 16 € (14 € with another item)
2000 grams to 20 kilos: specific sum depends on the country, please contact me before you want to make a purchase that exceeds 2 kilos. The customer may also go ahead and purchase the items they wish and any surplus shipping fees will be refunded.

Shipping for the rest of the world:

1-249 grams: 6.5 € (5 € with another item)
249-499 grams: 11 € (9 € with another item)
500-999 grams: 15 € (13 € with another item)
1000-1999 grams: 21 € (18 € with another item)
2000 grams to 20 kilos: specific sum depends on the country, please contact me before you want to make a purchase that exceeds 2 kilos. The customer may also go ahead and purchase the items they wish and any surplus shipping fees will be refunded.

2) Do you offer combined shipping?

Yes, I do. Shipping fees and combined shipping fees have been calculated for absolutely every item listed. It is safe to go ahead and make a purchase without contacting me beforehand. Your order will be shipped as one parcel and shipping will be combined if you make one large purchase or multiple separate purchases in one day. Shipping overages in excess of $2 will be refunded.

3) How long will it take for an item to be shipped?

Everything will be shipped within 1-3 business days. All items will be shipped as international registered mail and will have a tracking number.

Item(s) will be shipped solely to the address the customer has provided on his/her Etsy account. Please make sure it is correct. For more information regarding re-routing, what to do if you have provided the wrong address or have forgotten/are unable to pick up your order please see clauses 6 and 7.

4) How long will it take for a package to reach me?

Delivery can take up to 2-12 weeks depending on where the customer wants the package to be sent. All items will be shipped by the Estonian Postal Service. It usually takes 7-14 days for packages to reach their destination within Europe and up to 30-90 days to reach anywhere else, e.g. the United States.

So far it has taken two weeks for an item to reach its European destination, three weeks to reach the US and Australia and three weeks to a month to reach South America and New Zealand. It has taken 5 days for a package to reach South Korea and a week to reach Japan but it definitely might take longer.

If a customer needs an order for a specific date please keep these delivery dates in mind. Expedited shipping is possible but it will cost quite a bit (starting range is around $50 for the US). Customs may also delay packages and this has happened once with an US order where it took 45 days for the package to reach the recipient.

5) It's been too long and I haven't received my item! Where is it and what now?

All orders will always be shipped via registered mail meaning the customer will receive a tracking number with their notice of shipment. International registered mail parcels are not considered lost until 45 business days have passed since shipment was made.

If a registered mail order has not arrived in 45 business days the customer will receive a full refund for their order.

6) I've entered the wrong shipping address! Can I change it and what happens next?

Orders will always be shipped via registered mail meaning that the customer will receive a tracking number with the notice of shipping. If it so happens that the customer has entered the wrong address or they will be moving soon etc. there is only one thing that can be done and that is that the customer has to contact their respective postal service, provide the postal service with the tracking number and request the parcel to be re-directed to the correct address.

I can track most European orders (the UK's Royal Mail does not usually provide information for registered mail once the order has reached the UK) and will notify the customer via e-mail or through Etsy conversations if I happen to notice that an order is deemed "undeliverable" because of a wrong delivery address.

If an order is shipped to the US and the customer has provided the wrong address the customer has to contact their postal service, provide the postal service with the tracking number and request the parcel to be re-directed to the correct address.

Please be so kind as to note that as of Oct 1st 2015 USPS does not track international registered mail from over 120 countries around the world and that is also why you cannot track your order on USPS' website.

The seller is not liable if USPS is not able to trace an order because of their policies and as a result of this the customer is not able to reroute their order.

If the customer is not able to reroute the order to the correct address for any reason the customer is eligible for a partial refund only if:

a) the order is returned to its country of shipment i.e. Estonia;
b) the order returned is intact and without flaws (I will provide images of the item to the customer as proof)

If points a)-b) are complied with then the customer will receive a partial refund where shipping fees will be deducted from the order total. If the listing's shipping fees are stated as free of charge, the seller will provide the customer with a scanned image of the shipping receipt to prove how much actual shipping was. The shipping fee will then be deducted from the total price of the item.

For example:

An item costs $50 and shipping is $10, making the total $60. The customer provides the wrong address and the order is returned by the postal service to the country of origin. Thus the customer will receive a partial refund of $50 because the customer is responsible for providing the wrong address. The seller will always ship to the address provided by the customer. It is not the seller's responsibility to make sure that the address is correct. If the customer would still like to purchase an item after it has been returned to the country of origin the customer is required to pay for the shipping fees.

7) I've been away on holiday/for work etc. or forgot to pick up my order.

If the customer is unavailable for any reason or has forgotten to pick up their order it is up to the customer to stay in touch with their postal service or make sure that they will receive their order. The seller is not liable in situations like these. The customer is eligible for a partial refund only if:

a) the order is returned to its country of shipment i.e. Estonia;
b) the order returned is intact and without flaws (I will provide images of the item to the customer as proof).

If points a)-b) are complied with then the customer will receive a partial refund where shipping fees will be deducted from the order total. If the listing's shipping fees are stated as free of charge, the seller will provide the customer with a scanned image of the shipping receipt to prove how much actual shipping was. The shipping fee will then be deducted from the total price of the item. See last paragraph of clause 6) for exact refund process.

8) I really need an item, can I pay in installments or after it has been shipped?

I am sorry that is not possible. I do not accept paying in installments nor will I ship your order before payment has been cleared.

9) Do you offer expedited shipping?

I only have experience with expedited shipping to the U.S. so far. Expedited shipping to the U.S. starts at $65. Expedited shipping should cost less within Europe.

10) Will I have to pay taxes or import duties/fees?

The buyer is responsible for any customs duties or fees that may apply. However there should be no need for it because all items shipped outside of the European Union will be marked as gifts.

If the customer is still required to pay taxes or import duties/fees despite the fact that the item was marked as a gift, the customer is responsible for the taxes and/or import duties/fees.

11) Can it happen that the seller is sometimes unable to ship an item?

Yes, it can happen. Vintage syringes and other medical items that are occasionally listed cannot be shipped outside of the European Union. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency states that it is illegal to bring drug paraphernalia into the United States unless prescribed for authentic medical conditions such as diabetes. CBP will seize any illegal drug paraphernalia. Law prohibits the importation, exportation, manufacture, sale or transportation of drug paraphernalia.

Other items can be shipped outside of the European Union.

12) How do you ship and how do you package?

Smaller items such as clothing, pins and unbreakable kitchenware will be sent in security envelopes that have bubble wrap lining. The envelopes are all made of recycled paper.

Kitchenware and larger orders will be shipped in sturdy cardboard boxes. Wallpapers will be shipped in sturdy cardboard tubes.

Items will be gift wrapped with silk paper and wrapped in bubble wrap. All items will be shipped by the Estonian Postal Service also known as Omniva.

I offer insurance as well which is 10% of the item's price. Please notify the seller of your wish to insure your order before making a purchase.

13) Do you ever go on holiday? What happens if I purchase something when the seller is away?

If it happens that the seller happens to be away or on holiday then it will be noted in the shop banner along with the duration estimate in days or weeks. If you happen to make a purchase within the time period when the seller is away, you will receive a note stating the following information:

a) that the seller is away at the moment;
b) the exact date by which the seller will return;
c) that your order will be shipped in 3-5 business days following the day after the seller returned.

The customer will be notified if it happens that the seller has to extend their leave. The customer has the right to cancel their order if they wish to. If the customer would like to go ahead with their purchase despite receiving notice that the leave has to be extended, the order will be shipped in 3-5 business days following the day after the seller returned.
Refunds and Exchanges
1) Can I return an item?

Items are returnable however the buyer is responsible for the return shipping fee(s). If the shipped items are faulty upon arrival, you are entitled to a refund for only the item, not the shipping fee. If you happen to have any problems with the received item(s), please be so kind as to message me for I'm sure that we can fix the issue!

For more information please read subsections 2)-5)

2) What if the item is faulty or broken upon arrival?

If an item is faulty or broken upon arrival you are required to do the following:

a) Take a photo of the faulty item(s) and send it to the seller;
b) If there are no visual flaws or if the item is not broken please state your concern.

The extent of the refund will be decided case-by-case. If the item(s) is/are all broken, you will be fully refunded to the PayPal or credit card account you used to purchase the item(s). If some of the items are broken and some intact the customer will be partially refunded. But again, this depends on the particular case.

I will always try to send you a replacement. This is not always possible because vintage items are one of a kind but replacements can happen.

If the customer is to be refunded the refund will be made in 3 business days.

3) Am I eligible for a refund if I receive my order and I am not satisfied with how it looks?

If the item does not show flaws after delivery or is not broken but rather the customer is not satisfied with the look of it, the customer is not eligible for a refund. All pictures are taken of the items as they are. The photos are unedited so as to give the best and authentic feel to the items listed.

All flaws and defects will be described in detail in the product description. If the customer disregards the product description and purchases an item that has its flaws described, the customer is not eligible for a refund. By purchasing an item the customer agrees having read the product description and agreeing to the quality of the item in question.

4) Can I return an item if I don't like it or how it looks or if it is broken?

Yes, you can. If you want to return an item for any reason, the customer is responsible for the shipping fees. Shipping fees that are applied when returning an item are non-refundable. The item(s) you want to return must be returned in the condition they were sent in, i.e. intact and without additional flaws that were not described in the listing or visible in the product images.

The customer who wants to return an item is responsible for packing accordingly and has to do their due diligence when packing and shipping. The order has to be shipped in a proper envelope that is lined with bubble wrap or ship in a sturdy cardboard box. The items have to be carefully packed so as to insure safe delivery. If the returned items are lost in the mail if the customer has not done their due diligence.

5) Can I withdraw/cancel a transaction after I have paid for the order?

Yes, you can but only with the prerequisite that the item has not been shipped yet. Please keep in mind that I ship all orders between 1-3 business days. If you make a purchase and you wish to cancel the transaction you have to notify me before 9AM EET the next business day.

For example, if you were to make a purchase on a Friday, you would have to notify me of your wish to cancel the transaction before Monday morning 9AM EET.

Your order will be shipped unless the customer notifies the seller of wanting to cancel the transaction. Cancelling is not possible after the order has been shipped.
Additional policies and FAQs
1) I would really like to see some more pictures of an item! Would it be possible for you to send some?

Yes, sure! Just write to me and I'll send you some additional pictures in 2-3 business days. Just specify what angle you would like to see the item from.

2) What type and quality items do you offer?

I offer vintage items mainly from 1940s-1980s Soviet era. Some Scandinavian vintage can be found as well from the 1960s-1980s.

The vintage I offer are all high quality. Clothing is new with tags and new old stock most of the time. All clothes items are clean and without holes or other flaws. Kitchenware is mostly used but in very good condition without flaws, i.e. without missing chips or broken handles. If any items happen to have any flaws it will be stated in the item description. If I discover a flaw with an item after a customer has purchased it, I will contact the customer and do the following:

a) provide high resolution images of the imperfections;
b) ask the customer if they would still be interested in the item despite the imperfection;
c) reduce the price of the item if the customer requests it or it is deemed necessary by the seller.

I do not sell items that I would not want to use or wear myself.

3) Can I reserve an item(s)? For how long?

Yes, you can! Items can be reserved for 3 business days excluding weekends. After 3 business days have passed and the customer has not finished his/her purchase, the items previously reserved will become available for the next customer.
