About LaCartePostale

La Carte Postale

La Carte Postale was born from my many loves: vintage art, world travel, my family and, of course, jewelry! My love of stamps began when I was given my grandma's stamp collections from the 1920s and 30s. I'm drawn to stamps because they teach us a lot about our world and they also bring me back to a time before technology, when more letters were written to loved ones.

Each of my stamps are very special to me and are sourced from my ever-growing collection. Collecting stamps may be a rather antique hobby for some, but for me, it's a joy to find a gorgeous stamp.

I spend a lot of time finding just the perfect stamp to use in each piece. I source my stamps from small businesses and collectors. I love that I can support these small businesses with my small business!
I hope you enjoy my little store. If you are looking for something in particular that I don't have in my shop, please contact me. I love creating custom order and I would love to work with you! Thanks for visiting,
Thomasina

Returns and exchange details
For international orders or orders that include insurance, refunds or replacements will only be sent upon a successful insurance claim.

For orders that do not include insurance, a refund or replacement will be issued with sufficient evidence that damage was caused in transit.

Returns are accepted as long as the item is returned to me in its original condition. I do not cover the cost of return postage. Returns must be shipped to me within seven days of receiving the item. Once received, I will process the return within 3 business days, minus a 20% restocking fee.

If a purchase is delayed in transit, no refund will be issued until a search has been completed by the post office, as determined by their policies.

I send all purchases to the address provided to me by the customer. Please note that if the order is shipped and the address is actually incorrect and I was not notified prior to shipping, I will charge an additional amount to ship the item to a different address. Once I receive the item as it was returned to me via the postal service, I will contact the customer and discuss shipping options and prices. Unfortunately, for orders returned due to the incorrect address, I cannot offer free shipping.
Payment
Payment is required in full before shipment.

All sales are for items purchased during the sale period.

Custom orders do not qualify for sale prices unless marked.
Shipping
I ship all items via USPS 1st Class Mail.
Within the U.S., shipping includes a tracking number. Insurance will be provided for orders of $30 or more.
All international orders include insurance.
For U.S. orders, it can take 2-5 business days from shipping for your item to arrive. Due to COVID-19, these delivery times may be extended due to USPS and other international delivery services.
Please also note that buyers are responsible for all applicable taxes and customs fees that may be incurred.

I am happy to provide expedited shipping options. Please message me with your questions.
I ship out within 2 business days.

Unfortunately I do not take responsibility for packages marked as delivered that have been left at your door, or with another receiving party.

Please note that orders cannot be cancelled after 24 hours of being placed or if the item has already been marked as shipped, whichever occurs first.

If a purchase is delayed in transit, no refund will be issued until a search has been completed by the post office, as determined by their policies.
Additional policies and FAQs
Because my jewelry is handmade from vintage (and sometimes antique) stamps, colors and variations in the stamps can differ slightly than the photos used. I try my best to capture the item as it is, but subtle details may not be easily shown in the photos.
All of my items come beautifully wrapped for easy gift-giving!

Please note that for any custom order, if payment is not received within 3 days of order posting, I reserve the right to sell any part of the order to someone else.
