Announcement   Thanks for visiting my little shop full of randomness!

I'm gradually adding many more goodies from my parents' estate, as I have time. Over the next couple of months, I expect to add some more vintage and handmade clothing in misses' size 10-12, more vintage jewelry, and other surprises. Please follow my shop to keep tabs on the new arrivals!

Sorry about the increases in shipping rates, especially for international shipping - I've had some rude awakenings at the post office recently! Rest assured that if I overcharge you on shipping by more than $1, I'll promptly refund the difference.

Hello, and thanks for stopping by my little shop!

This store started out as a place for me to sell my own crafts, but it's blossomed into so much more. I still sell my own crafts here, but I also sell lots of vintage goodies, mostly from my parents' estate.

I've been selling and trading online for about fifteen years now, and I love it! Keeping this shop is a fun hobby for me, and I've met so many cool people this way. This is a one-girl operation based in a tiny city apartment. I aim for five-star service and mutual happiness. :)

Payment
I'd prefer immediate payments, but you know there's no way I can enforce that. I require payment within one week of purchase, or I may cancel the transaction.

I prefer direct checkout (credit cards or Etsy gift cards) or PayPal, but if need be, I will accept money orders or well-concealed cash via snail mail. Please let me know by sending me a convo or a note at checkout that you plan to mail your money order or cash payment, so I know what to expect.

Personal checks are NOT accepted.
Shipping
I try to be honest and fair in pricing my products and assigning shipping fees. If I find that I've overcharged you on shipping by more than $1, I will refund the difference.

Most items ship domestically via First Class Mail, but some books (as noted in listing) will go via Media Mail to save on shipping costs. To get your items even faster, with included insurance and delivery confirmation, please purchase the Priority Mail upgrade. I can ship seven days a week, so most orders go out within 24-48 hours of receiving payment. Custom-made items may take a few days longer.

I reuse and recycle packaging materials when available. Being earth-friendly is very important to me, and I try not to waste things that are reusable.

I am willing to meet up in person (in public) to exchange cash/items if you are in Philly. Convo me!

International shipping is via USPS First Class International (airmail), which has become crazy expensive over the last couple of years - I remember one rude awakening in 2014 where it cost $7 to mail a pin to England, which meant I lost money on the sale! Please don't blame me for the high shipping rates - blame the USPS! Once again, if I've overcharged on shipping by more than $1, I'll refund the difference ASAP.

I mark international shipments as "merchandise," not "gifts," on the customs form, since money was exchanged for them.
Refunds and Exchanges
I try to list items accurately and price them fairly. As a general rule, I am unable to offer refunds or exchanges. However, if you find yourself unhappy with your purchase because you believe that I made an error in its description, please speak to me before leaving negative/neutral feedback. I'm more than willing to work with you if there is any problem!
Additional policies and FAQs
I currently live with no smokers and no pets, though I did live with a smoker and a dog over five years ago. Additionally, my vintage items may have lived with smokers before I acquired them.

If I didn't mention it in the item description, please feel free to ask me for custom orders on items handmade by me.

Regarding my one negative feedback: This is the first negative feedback I have received in almost a decade and a half of online selling/trading. The buyer left feedback before I had a chance to respond. Once I received her message, I promptly refunded the order. I have certainly learned my lesson about packing fragile paper items!
