The item arrived just as described although it came nearly a month after ordering it. I ordered on Nov. 11th hoping to use the towel during Thanksgiving week but it didn't arrive until Dec. 7th. After I contacted the seller 2 weeks later to see where my order was she apologized and I accepted that. Still the order didn't arrive for another 12 days. This may be a rare issue with the seller as I see she has good feedback.

About

For the love of animals

Houndvintage is the strictly vintage side of my resale business which began at ebay. One of my earliest encounters there on the animal discussion boards was going there to seek advice when my cat was recovering from surgery. I found great friends and discovered an interest in animal rescue then, leading to get involved in local humane organizations, rescue transport groups and other support.

Houndvintage on Etsy is used primarily to support my giving to animal rescue organizations, but I do occasionally give to human causes that touch my heart as well. Specific fundrasing efforts are often announced in my shop heading.

I also believe in environmental responsibility--another plus to vintage!--so I try to keep product packaging very minimal. It helps reduce your shipping cost and my footprint on the planet. That said, I do offer "boutique" style packaging or gift wrapping upon request to those who prefer it.

I also got started on a tradition of usually enclosing free gifts with purchases...it was so popular I just never stopped! I treasure the wonderful people I have encountered on Etsy. The atmosphere is more relaxed and courteous than most other selling sites. I welcome trade requests, wish list items and best offers anytime. Thanks for visiting!

    I love to collect, hoard and pass on lovely vintage finds at a fair price. I am owned by one chubby old dog, three arrogant cats and dozens of rescued foster friends over the years. What I earn from houndvintage supports my favorite causes.

Hi! I gather and share real wearable and affordable vintage clothing and accessories. Each item will be clean and free of strong odors. If an item is flawed, it will be disclosed in the listing. I take care to authenticate the age of every item I list and will NOT list reproductions (unless for example a 20s style dress manufactured in the 50s, in which case the listing will say such). Any questions, please ask!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
  • Check
  • Other Method
Payment
I prefer that payment be received within ten days of purchase unless other arrangements are made first. I accept paypal from confirmed addresses, as well as money order (international postal money order only from outside the U.S.). From U.S. buyers, I will accept personal checks but they must clear before shipping. Layaway is also available. Just convo me for details.
Shipping
*I LOVE to combine shipping...the second item shipping cost is the highest you will have to pay, I may be able to do even better!*

Most items are shipped First Class when possible to keep cost lower. I try to keep it green with minimal packaging. Gift wrapping or boutique packaging available upon request. Anything else will be shipped Priority Mail. Other options may be available at buyer's request (overnight, UPS, etc).
Insurance is optional (1.05 domestic, 1.65 international) but I may choose to include it in some listings at my expense. Delivery confirmation is included on all domestic orders and international orders shipped via priority mail.

I love my international buyers! Buyers in Japan, NZ: Use shipping cost for Australia. Buyers in western Europe, please use shipping cost for UK. Anyplace else, just ask for cost. Please be aware, though, I will NOT falsify customs forms by marking as gift or altering the purchase price of the item. Any customs imposed in buyer's country is strictly the responsibility of the buyer.
Refunds and Exchanges
Refunds are always accepted for items that have listing errors. I do not accept returns on intimates, holiday items or formal wear. If you want to return an item for poor fit, I cannot refund shipping cost, but will refund purchase price when item is returned in the condition it was shipped to you. All measurements are carefully taken and provided in the listing. If you have a question not answered in the listing, please ask before you bid--you'll be glad you did! :)
Additional policies and FAQs
I do sell wholesale lots when I have ample stock to do so--just ask!
I do not do alterations--I am sorry, but I am a terrible seamstress and you would not be happy with my work. If you want an item that will need altered, please take it to a trusted seamstress/tailor near you.
I do maintain a favorite buyers list--if you'd like to be on my email list for 'first dibs' offers just let me know!
