The sweater looked exactly like the picture except a small black stain. I just wasn't happy with the shipping time. It took a week for it to be shipped. This wasn't communicated to me and when I asked I didn't get a response. If you are looking for something in a hurry be mindful!

I loooooove this skirt. I don't think I've ever gotten so many compliments on anything I've ever owned. Thanks!

This coat is stunning! It came just in time for the holidays thanks to the quick shipping turnaround. What I love about this store is they offer larger vintage clothes and show it accurately on the model and in the description. It is in perfect vintage condition. I'm beyond thrilled. Thank you so much!

This top is great quality and fits true to size and I am happy with it. However; I was very concerned when the shop closed down after I placed my order. I did receive the item but only after messaging the seller.

This top is stellar. High quality, excellent condition, and flattering as all get out. Flawless service, too. I love Jillian's keen eye for design and her curatorial style. Plus, we're roughly the same size, so I knew the fit would be on-point. I can't tell you what an advantage it is to see the garments on an actual human being! I look forward to buying more pieces from her.

Determined to Create the Dream
I dreamed of owning my own business since I was in 7th grade. I started by making jewelry and selling it at my school fair. Years later, Joules Jewels Vintage opened in April 2009-- one month before my graduation date from Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) with a BFA in Photography. In the summer of 2010, my shop was featured in Chicago's Time Out Magazine, as a vintage vendor on the rise. In May of 2011, I was honored as one of Chicago's newest female entrepreneurs by Maven Chicago in conjunction with Today's Chicago Woman Magazine.
Now that I have moved to San Francisco, I have expanded the brand even further by opening a by-appointment studio located in the Mission District and stocking a variety of merchandise including: regular and plus size women's, men's, and children's clothing, housewares, and occasionally hand-finished vintage furniture.
Recently, the costume department for 2014 Sundance Festival's Ping Pong Summer (starring Lea Thompson and Susan Sarandon), have used our pieces in the film!
I believe that fashion’s first function is to express individuality and creativity. Secondly, fashion at any level, should be affordable; specifically, vintage. Fashion includes everything you put on your own body, to how you furnish your home– even down to the salt and pepper shakers.
Keep up with all the vintage fun and get first dibs on new listings on our brand new Instagram @jjvshop (previously @jjoules).

After graduating from Savannah College of Art and Design, I fell in love with the idea of owning my own business again and decided to bring the name back. But this time not just stick to jewelry, but branching out into all things vintage.
Vintage reminds me of playing dress up. Everyday is a new day to be pretty or pretty fine.
Although some brand names do appear; the cut, quality, and appeal of the items is more important.
Everything you see here is completely one-of-a-kind and has been hand-picked.
Fashion should be affordable. Your look should be effortless. Being an individual has never felt so good; and knowing you got it for less is even better.

Returns and exchange details
If you are unhappy with your item, we will always try to work something out with you. Our customer's happiness is the most important to us.
However, refunds are only on a case by case basis. A refund is not always guaranteed unless something is seriously wrong with the item purchased. Please READ the description in full, and if you have questions ALWAYS contact us FIRST before making your purchase. Your payment and agreement to purchase items from us consents that you fully understand the details of/about/pertaining to the item/shipment/color/size/condition in the listing.
This is not to be mean, or spiteful- this is only to avoid the very sudden shopper's disease; buyer's guilt. It's quite contagious. Also it deters customers who are only interested in buying and wearing an item one time (for instance, to a special event) and returning it after it has been worn.
Returns must be made at the buyer's expense in the original packaging in which the item was shipped, including all packaging materials and with a tracking number.
Refunds will be given after the package is received by Joules Jewels Vintage and the buyer is given less the cost of shipping if a refund has been agreed upon.
Canceled and/or refunded transactions (if agreed upon) will be issued a 20% restocking fee (item price). This also includes purchases made on reserved items for other customers, purchases made without reading the description in full or otherwise.
Joules Jewels Vintage is not responsible for damage done to items during the shipping process. This includes lost, stolen, irreparable damages, water, snow, ice etc. We package items to the best of our ability to withstand normal shipping and handling by USPS, UPS, FedEx and other currier agencies.
Joules Jewels Vintage is not responsible for any delays occurring during the shipping process and the buyer/purchaser holds Joules Jewels Vintage innocent of anything pertaining to this. This includes delays caused by weather, vehicular accidents, acts of God, etc. We ship items as soon as possible after payment has been received, and on rush shipments, items are shipped same day after buyer completes the transaction.
Once you have agreed to pay for the item, you must continue on to Paypal and confirm your purchase. If you do not, your item is not considered paid for and your item will not be shipped.
If you are purchasing via Direct Checkout, your item(s) will be marked as "shipped" the day you purchase your item to release the funds from Etsy (they hold the money until the item is marked shipped). Once Etsy pays us, your item will be shipped.
Payment must be received within 72 hours of agreeing to purchase or the item will be relisted.
Paypal and Direct Checkout (credit card) are the only forms of accepted tender. It's safe for you and me. Paypal accepts credit and debit cards too, so don't fret! I will only ship items for which I have received notice of payment via Paypal or Direct Checkout. Once we receive your payment, your item will be shipped!
If you are still a little confused about payment, have no fear! Just read this handy dandy guide.

LOCAL PICKUP/DELIVERY: If you live in the San Francisco/Bay Area, you are more than welcome to come get your item (or ask for a drop-off) so you don't have to wait! Your shipping cost will be refunded to you promptly (for pick up orders only). Delivery charges are gas and labor (especially for furniture items). Please contact me prior to purchase if local pickup/delivery is a more convenient option for you.

Also please be advised that vintage items are previously worn and owned. On rare occasions we do have mint condition items in stock (these items are labeled as such). However, generally most items are not, and therefore are sold as is. All photos are professional and lit well and are never touched up to add/remove flaws or details.
