    Owner, Jill Of All Trades

    I'm Linda from Baltimore, Maryland USA. From 1998 to 2003 I operated an online vintage clothing and collectibles store called CoolOldStuff. It makes me happy to get my items into the hands of people who love and cherish vintage items as much as I do!

Hello! Welcome to CoolOldStuff Etsy. I'm Linda from Baltimore, MD, currently staying in the Netherlands. I owned an online shop, CoolOldStuff.com, which was in existence from 1997 until 2003. Although I've taken on other work, vintage is and always will be my passion. I've been collecting stuff most of my life and I have an eye for vintage items: in particular clothing, boots, records, and household items. I spend a lot of time fixing things, removing stains, and tinkering. I hope you enjoy what you see here. Feel free to browse and of course ask questions. I'm here to help you find something you will love!

Payment can be made by Paypal or by bank transfer. PLEASE MESSAGE ME IF YOU WANT TO DO A BANK TRANSER. Items not shipped until payment is cleared.

To pay on Paypal without a Paypal account: Choose the PayPal Option during checkout. After you submit your order, click the "Pay Now" button. Scroll down to the option to pay with a Credit or Debit Card. This allows you to pay without having a PayPal account.

We will also accept BANK TRANSFER PAYMENTS. Please send me a message if you're interested in paying this way.
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: All items unless otherwise noted are shipped from the Netherlands.

SHIPPING RATES: Rates for shipping from the Netherlands are WITHOUT insurance or tracking. ****I cannot be responsible for lost packages if you do not choose tracked shipping!**** Please contact me if you wish another method of shipping such as tracking, signed, or insurance. The cost will be adjusted on your order.

SHIPPING TIME: Most orders are sent within 3-4 business days of receipt of order. Unfortunately I have no way of knowing when the package will get to you unless you request and pay for tracked shipping. Thanks for your understanding.

*** Note that shipping times may take longer around holidays, including Dutch holidays.

RUSH ORDERS: Can sometimes be accommodated on request for an additional fee.

ADDITIONAL ITEMS: Note that the charge for an extra item is for ONE ADDITIONAL ITEM ONLY. If you wish to purchase more than 2 items, please contact us for a shipping quote.

ADDRESS: We only ship to the Etsy address supplied. Please make sure your Etsy address is correct or send the address where you want the item to be sent. If the Paypal and Etsy addresses are different, I will use the Etsy address.

CUSTOMS: Note that when shipping abroad, items may end up in customs for several weeks. I have no control over this. If you are in a hurry to get your item, please notify me and I can try to get it to you sooner (with an adjusted shipping cost if applicable).
Additional policies and FAQs
RESERVE REQUESTS: Items will be reserved for 48 hours unless we have agreed otherwise. After 48 hours, if the item has not been paid for, the item will be returned to inventory so others have a chance to purchase. For longer reserves, a deposit is required to hold the item.

LAYWAYS: 25% up front, including shipping fees. The balance is due within two months. I will invoice at regular intervals. Cancellation fee/failure to pay is 25% of the item or €25, whichever is higher. Item ships upon last payment. Early payment perfectly okay :-)

Should you agree, please convo me. I will send you an invoice via Paypal.
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.

Personal information I collect:
I collect email and street addresses for shipping purposes only to fulfill orders, the third parties with whom he shares the information, and the length of time he keeps the information. Here's an example:
Information I Collect

To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address,mailing 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, 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 fulfill 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 a mailing list, if applicable;
- 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 to improve 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: 5 years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

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.

How to Contact Me

For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Linda Ferguson, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at linda(dot)ferguson(at)gmail.com. You may also send a request or concerns directly to Etsy.
