hi! i'm julia. i am addicted to three things: the internet, film, and thrifting. i currently live in québec city, canada and this city (and its stores) are filled with historic treasures. i love scouring thrift stores for great finds, and this store is an accumulation of years of thriting. most of the items i sell are pieces i love but do not quite fit me, but that i would love to see go to a good home!

i am also a little activist at heart; a die-hard feminist, veggie and environmentalist. etsy is a great resource to share used items, as buying new is just unnecessary! buying vintage is a great way to support small businesses, own one of a kind items, avoid sweatshop labor and poor quality, and save money all at the same time. say no to new!

i model my own clothing almost 100% of the time, and never clip clothing, so that gives you an idea of sizes. i try to price as reasonably as possible, considering the quality of the garments and my own budgets.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
As with all vintage items, there can often be flaws, stains, or other imperfections as they are all older than me (and probably you!). I do my best to list any flaws in the item descriptions, and can send additional photos by request. Contact me if you have any questions about the items, or if you are unhappy with your purchase. I can not accept returns on items that don't fit, with the occasional exception for shoes.

Most clothing has been washed prior to shipping.

If you believe your item is lost in the mail, please contact me.
Please submit payment promptly, and let me know if you need extra time. If I don't hear from you or receive payment within five days, I will contact you via etsy conversations and email before canceling the sale.
shipping: i try to ship twice a week, tuesdays and fridays, but please note that it may (in unusual and rare circumstances) take up to seven days to ship.

i am not responsible for items that take later than expected to arrive. shipping to the states takes anywhere from one week to a month, depending on the area. if you need an item by a certain date, please let me know. once the items are shipped and in the hands of canada post, there is nothing i can do (even when tracking is involved).

insurance: please let me know if you would like to purchase insurance on your package so that you are covered in case of loss or damage.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: i am happy to ship internationally! please convo me for an exact shipping price. i overestimate on international shipping, but your shipping prices will likely be lower than my estimate.
