Purchasing on Etsy is new to you? Here’s how to: http://www.etsy.com/help_guide_checkout.php

Payment via PayPaL which accepts all major credit cards (credit card payment is available via Paypal and you do not need a Paypal account). Payments are due upon purchase.

If payment is not received within 24 hours of purchase the transaction will be cancelled and item re-listed. In the event of an issue with PayPal, send me an email and I will hold the item until the situation in resolved.

Money Orders are accepted but must be sent registered mail or any other traceable service. If money order is not received within 2 weeks of purchase and untraceable the sale will be cancelled.

For serious buyers only: you love that dress but need a little bit of time to gather the funds: send me an email to discuss a payment plan (a deposit of 10% will be necessary or $10, whichever is greater). Payment is generally due in full in 30 days.

Please be specific about your shipping address when placing your order.
Items are shipped to the address on your PayPal account.
Send me an email if you choose to have items shipped to a different address and/or have other instructions.

Items are shipped via Canada Post that, from experience, is a very reliable shipping agent.

For multiple item purchase I will re-weigh and adjust shipping costs accordingly, same thing if you need tracking. Please let me know prior to purchase so that I can requote shipping cost.

The shipping rates in each listing cover packaging, postage BUT DO NOT INCLUDE TRACKING & INSURANCE. This is the most economical method of shipping, your saving.
***Make sure to take this into consideration if you need an item by a certain date or do not want to wait too long. I’ll be happy to oblige and upgrade the shipping method; just send me an email with your country code and I’ll give you a quote and adjust the listing’s shipping rate.

Buyers outside Canada are responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred.

I am not responsible for items once they are shipped out unless you specifically ask for upgrade (tracking and insurance).

Refunds and Exchanges
Review policies and consider purchases carefully before placing your order.
The vintage items offered have been worn/pre-loved and range in age from 20 to 60 years and older; they are not perfect!

All garments get washed and hand washed. For laundering, depending on the item, I use Woolite or environmentally safe and perfume free soap. I choose not have garments dry cleaned (unless noted when they are) to keep costs low. It is best, depending on the type of garment, to have them dry cleaned or wash upon reception, unless indicated that it has been done.

All items are vintage and "ALL SALES ARE FINAL". I do my very best to disclose and describe all noticeable issues or flaws so you can be confident about your purchase. I am not a photographer but I do my best to take accurate pictures of each item. If you have any questions about sizes and measurements or need additional photos on items please CONVO ME and I will be happy to work with you. I will do my best to answer any questions you may have before you purchase.

I do not offer refunds for fit issues, small imperfections, variances in monitor colors, or buyer's remorse since these matters are out of my control.

If you feel an item has been SERIOUSLY misrepresented you can contact me 3 days within reception of merchandise and in most cases a refund will be issued when the item is returned. Shipping fees for returning an item will not be refunded.
Additional policies and FAQs
DISPLAY
I use various forms of display – dress form, mannequin, garments on hangers
Measurements of dress form and mannequin are indicated in the item description and I will note if the garment is pinned or not.

MEASUREMENTS & SIZING
Vintage clothing fit differently than today’s garments; they are cut closer to the body. For this reason it is important to give some allowance for wearing ease and make sure you know your own measurements.
Measurements provided are actual measurements of the garment taken flat then doubled at the bust, waist & hips. Consider your personal comfort, read the sizing information and compare measurements of a similar comfortable fitting garment of your own to ensure proper fit.

How to measure:
CHEST: place tape underarms and around fullest part of chest wearing a bra. I measure garment flat, underarm seam to seam (x2)
SLEEVE: place tape underarm to wrist bone. I measure both: from top of sleeve seam to sleeve hemline and from underarm to sleeve hemline
WAIST: place tape around your natural waistline. I measure waist area of the garment from seam to seam. I measure garment flat, underarm seam to seam (x2)
HIPS: place tape around natural hipline ( appr. 8’’ below the waist). I measure garment flat, underarm seam to seam (x2)
LENGTH: place tape at back of natural neckline all the way down the length of your back. I measure from neckline seam to the hem of the garment.

MEASURING SHOES
Measuring tape laid flat inside the shoe from toe to heel and flat over the arch.
Width is measure on the sole - widest part part (ball)

CONDITION
Superb: vintage item near perfection
Excellent: lightly used, no flaw to minor flaw(s) that are or is not distracting
Very Good: normal wear for the age. A few minor visible flaw(s) that will not detract from the overall look of item
Good: a few obvious visible flaws but usable

I do not offer garments that I would not be proud to wear myself, that said
please contact me if you are unhappy with your purchase. I work very hard searching for items that will make you happy and feel special, so before giving negative feedback about my store, contact me so we can discuss and resolved the matter, I am a fair and understanding person.

Information : marking , irregularities, imperfections , condition maybe apparent. This should not be considered as imperfection and are the characteristic of vintage materials.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING AND HAPPY SHOPPING!
