Announcement   Welcome to JOOLAHOLIC!

Spring discount coupon code good now through Mar. 31 is 2016SPRINGFLING10 for 10% off any purchase $35 or more. (Does not apply to any already-discounted items or shipping.)

PLEASE NOTE: In the wake of the recent USPS shipping price increase of a WHOPPING .50 for the 1st 3 oz of a US Domestic 1st Class pkg,* and .05 for each 3-4 oz thereafter, we have NOT raised OUR DOMESTIC shipping prices at all; while many sellers HAVE. In fact, we have not raised them at all through the past 4 or 5 USPS rate hikes, spanning from 2012-now. USPS seems to be hiking the cost semi-annually now, instead of just in Aug.; while fuel costs have come WAAAAYYY down compared to 2011-2014. Where is the price increase going???? Certainly NOT for more efficient service and less backtracking and lost/damaged pkgs!!!

OH, I almost forgot about those BIG, FAT USPS pensions for all the senior workers who were hired in the 70's, 80's & 90's before FEDEX gave USPS a run for its (our) money. Those BIG, FAT pensions are going to have to be paid SOMEHOW, right?? Ask ANY USPS worker, and they will know the EXACT DAY,HOUR, MINUTE, SECOND they retire and that BIG, FAT pension kicks in. THAT is what they are focusing on MOST of the time, NOT on serving Postal Customers the best they can!!!

* USPS 1st Class International and Priority International rates have also gone up and we WILL be forced to raise OUR International accordingly, especially for the heavier and higher value items, but also for the basic low value small items as well. Oh, heck, we'll just have to raise them all. Those 1000's of USPS retirees MUST have their pensions and who are we to stand in their way of living in leisure while we Etsy sellers are slaving to keep our bills paid every month??!! For 1st Class International, it is now about $7.50 MORE for 1-8 oz, which really penalizes purchases of lightweight single item smalls. Hopefully buyers will buy MORE from us as a result of this to get the full worth of the price up to 8 oz. for the same rate as for 1-3 oz.; THEN it jumps to $14.73 for 9 oz or more!!! YIKES!!
Also, new rules, wherein we CANNOT ship items over $400 value by 1stClass International OR priority Flat Rate Envelope or Small Flat Rate Box. USPS is hell-bent on choke-holding us all into PAYING MORE for International shipping. GGGRRRRRRR!!!!
I've got a hunch that most sellers will be accidentally underweighting their heavier 1st Class International pkgs. OOPS!

Welcome to JOOL-AHOLIC! We offer vintage jewelry, fashions and decor and unique, one-of-a-kind baubles and treasures.

As selling veterans of the Pasadena,CA Rose Bowl ('97-'07) and other top markets throughout the US, we are proud to be in our 5th year on Etsy.com as a merchandising venue. We look forward to presenting more hand-picked vintage items that are popular, yet unique, and of the higher quality for our discriminating customers. We always take a view through the clients' eye when making new selections for our inventory.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Paypal is in ON mode and we are accepting Etsy Gift Cards and credit cards through Etsy Direct Checkout.

You may also use your Paypal debit card in Etsy Direct Checkout, as it will process as a Direct Checkout credit card purchase with no added fees by Etsy.

Generally, there are no cancellations allowed once an item is paid for. Be sure that you REALLY want the item BEFORE committing to purchase and completing checkout. We WILL NOT grant refunds or cancellations based on change of mind, made a "mistake" and purchased wrong item (which is highly improbable and suspicious- it really means that you changed your mind and found another one from another seller), color preference or that a similar item was found at a lower price somewhere else, for example. Fort more detailed info, please see "Refund Policy" below.
Shipping
We ship most items USPS, either 1st Class (default) or Priority, depending on size and/or weight with insurance, if over $20.00 when sent to a US destination; unless otherwise requested and/or prohibited by size or weight. If a request is made by buyer to ship by a Carrier we would not ordinarily use, an additional $5-$50 handling fee may be assessed depending on pkg. size, value and/or specific requirements. If request is made after item has been paid for, the handling fee MUST be paid/cleared BEFORE we will ship the item. This will be billed to you directly by Paypal. This also applies to International transactions.

Insurance/confirmation is MANDATORY for all items of $25.00 or higher purchase value, except where it is not available. Small pkgs. are automatically sent by 1st Class Mail in all cases unless weight of pkg places it into Priority category, as applicable, to destination address.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING

A customs slips will be completed for ALL International shipments. We WILL normally NOT declare any "Gift" items.

We will assume NO RESPONSIBILITY for undeliverable or unclaimed pkgs., except where the address is incorrectly/illegibly written by us on the address label.
We also will assume no responsibility for International 1st Class, noninsurable pkgs that become damaged, unusable or completely destroyed during shipment out side the US either in their country of destination or through any other country during transit. This especially applies to Ireland, where river transport by antiquated and poorly maintained vessels is utilized by An' Post because of formidable road conditions which would make truck transport of mail unfeasible.

If you are concerned with the safe and/or timely receipt of your pkg, it is advisable to request upgrade to Priority Mail or Express with insurance and in case of items with purchase price of $250 US or higher, Registered Mail OR Priority Mail will be required and mandatory in all cases and this cost is reflected in the quoted shipping costs of each item. The default shipping method for $250US or higher is 1st Class International by Registered fully insured mail. For items of higher weight, above 4lbs. and valued $250US or more, Priority will be quoted. If you wish to send by Priority for smaller items that are valued $250US or higher, this is considered an upgrade and will incur additional cost, which will be billed to you upon request only and is not automatic.

We will do our utmost in making sure your purchase gets to you in a reasonable time frame, including providing copies of tracking and/or insurance and customs slips if so required. All info and recommendations are to the BEST OF OUR KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE , and in NO WAY reflect any liaison or professional relationship with ANY Postal Service or Shipping Provider WE have NO CONTROL over ANY Postal or Shipping Services ANYWHERE ON THE PLANET and therefore are not to be blamed or held responsible for late delivery beyond the projected date. No returns due to late deliveries.
Refunds and Exchanges
All sales are FINAL, and we do not offer cancellations, except as otherwise stated below. We are meticulous in describing our merchandise to the extent of taking pride in the art of doing so. If it should come to our attention that an item is INDEED and VERIFIABLY* described SUBSTANTIALLY incorrectly, either BEFORE or AFTER the transaction is completed, we will do our utmost to rectify the situation by either changing/removing the listing or making mutual, amicable settlement with the buyer, including POSSIBLY, partial or full refund of purchase price, at our discretion and according to the circumstances. For orders in which the customer wishes to cancel and the item has not yet been shipped, shipping only will be refunded and a restocking fee of 33.34%% of the item price will be assessed, and remainder will not be given as money-back, but a future store credit* (see below). If order HAS been shipped already and the buyer INSISTS ( also see next paragraph), a 33.34% restocking fee will apply and no shipping (outbound or return) will be reimbursed at all. Buyer pays return shipping. If buyer does not agree to these stipulations, no return will be granted. There will be NO exceptions to this, as in cases of "I made a mistake" , "I accidentally purchased it", "I changed my mind", "I don't need it any longer", or if there is any unanticipated (either on our part or buyer's part or both) additional shipping upgrade cost requirement that is necessary in order to fulfill our mandatory insurance requirements, buyer's wishes or both, or ANY OTHER EXTENUATING circumstance or condition, etc.

In cases wherein a customer is simply dissatisfied with some aspect of an item for any reason other than that it was SUBSTANTIALLY incorrectly described or represented, and insists upon a return for that item, even when another solution to the problem may have been offered ( and that is ALWAYS totally up to our discretion in such cases), to render the item more usable, functional and/or appealing, or if the reason for the complaint is not our fault, but is either the opinion of the customer and/or something inherent in the construction, the design, and/or the materials of the item as it was originally made or produced and/or was intentionally designed that way, and that aspect of the item was plainly visible in one or more pics in the listing, as the item was presented for sale in that as it was originally acquired/received by us in that very same state and/or condition; yet the customer chooses not to accept our solution offer and insists upon a refund, a restocking/transaction administration fee of 33.34% of the sales price will be assessed, less any transaction fees assessed by and/or not refunded by Paypal from the refund amount due and customer will also pay return shipping with mandatory insurance and tracking and original shipping will NOT be refunded. Item is to be repackaged using the same or equal material as originally shipped to customer and sent to us via USPS WITH tracking or confirmation AND insured for the amount of the original purchase. Refund in the form of a store credit* only will be issued once item has been received in like condition as it was originally sent out to customer.

We will NOT be responsible for damage/loss to items while in transit. We will pack each item as if it were our own and that will be the state in which it leaves our possession (FOB SHIPPING POINT, which means our office location) and is handed over to the Postal carrier. If an item arrives damaged or never arrives at all, an insurance claim must be made to the carrier for the damage/loss. We will assist in this to the extent possible.

Re: Internationally mailed items: We will not be responsible for items lost in transit. Most pkgs. reach their destinations without a hitch. In some countries, the customs process takes longer than in others, therefore items may be received up to four or even six weeks after they are mailed and in some cases longer. We are also not responsible for any import duties, taxes, VAT, fees, Customs Charges, Delivery Charges, or etc, etc, that may be charged on your end in your home country as these things are NOT any of our responsibilty and have nothing to do with anything in US or with our shop.

Re: Returns from International customers. We do not anticipate granting returns. Furthermore, we will not and cannot be responsible for an item that becomes lost en route from an International postal service and we never receive the item being returned. Cost of return postage only will be refunded in the case that a refund for merchandise is being offered for any reason other than non-receipt, when we have taken due diligence to ship the item safely. No repackaging or other tacked-on fees will be paid to the customer returning any goods for any reason whatsoever.

* Verifiability means documentably verifiable by an independent unafiiliated third party PROFESSIONAL that a SIGNIFICANT item characteristic is EXTREMELY different than listed, and thus significantly decreases the resale or appraisal value of said item. For example, if we list an item as from the 1940's that was consistently produced between the 1940's and the 1960's in the same type of materials and STYLE throughout that time period, that does NOT constitute an item being GROSSLY misrepresented and thus we will not accept returns based on such a technicality. Also, any alleged discrepancy such as SIGNIFICANTLY different material than described, i.e., the item turns out to be gold filled as opposed to SOLID gold, if we said in the listing it was solid karat gold, then you must provide a copy of the testing results to substantiate any claim for a return. Tesing must be done and SIGNED legibly on company letterhead by an unrelated or unafiliated jewelry store, gold buyer or gold refiner to be considered valid.

Circa dates are our educated opinion and sometimes we may be off by a factor of 10-30 years on jewelry items and 10-15 years on clothing items, or 100's of years on the ancient items. If you or an associate ever differ with us concerning a circa date and you are wanting to return the item based on that criteria alone, please be aware of the foregoing policy stipulations. We will NOT grant any item return for reason of misrepresentation because of some such "knit picking" over years and dates of mfg. Many so-called experts are garden-variety amateurs with a business card, a badge or some sort of license.

* store credits can be redeemed by convo-ing us prior to purchase and telling us which item(s) are in your cart. If the total amount is greater than the store credit, you will receive an immediate refund of the store credit amount after purchase. If it is equal to or less than the store credit, we will adjust the merchandise prices to meet that amount, but shipping will not be included. You must pay the shipping cost through checkout.
Additional policies and FAQs
All International pkgs of $20 or more are now insured against damage/loss and any issues pertaining to this are to be addressed through an insurance claim with the insurer at Stamps.com or insurance provided through Etsy shipping labels, whichever was used to ship your pakg . We will assist in this process to the extend we are able. If, for any reason, you elect to decline the insurance or to underinsure an item, we will not be held resonsible in any way for damage/loss due to the under insurance of its value. Attempting to avoid taxes and Customs fees due in your home country can result in greater losses due to damaged/lost merchandise. We will also not be held liable for any merchandise returned to us for your failure to pay your country's taxes, import duties and Customs fees. All of the foregoing are your sole resonsibility and are in no way covered by the insurance nor included in the shipping cost.


LAYAWAYS
We welcome layaways and will require 33.334% DOWN TO START and another 33.334% within 30 days; with final balance including shipping to be submitted by the end of 45-60 days ( or longer if the item is above $300.00) .
DEFAULTED LAYAWAYS- No refunds will be given on layaways in which the buyer cannot or is unwilling to complete the payments for the item and shipping. NO exceptions. If you cannot complete the layaway, please do not start it in the first place. At MOST we will offer a store credit less restocking fee of 33.334% for the amount already paid in.
