Returns and exchange details
It is very important to me that you adore your La Poubelle Vintage purchase! Please keep in mind that all of these items are 20-100 years old and have been previously worn and loved! I go to great lengths to indicate flaws like tears or stains and I am always very happy to take more photos or measurements of any item so please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions.

That being said, all sales are final. I do not accept returns for fit or small imperfections. However, if you feel an item has been grossly misrepresented, please contact me within two business days of receiving your order and I will do my best to come to a solution that works for both of us. Sale items are sold AS-IS and are non-returnable under any circumstances.

Returns will not be accepted for color differences as all screens display color differently. Please reach out to me if you are in need of a very specific color.

If an exchange or refund is agreed upon please send the item back in the same condition as it was delivered to you within 7 business days (15 for international customers). Items that have been altered, damaged, or worn will not be accepted. Returns may be subject to a 20% restocking fee. Shipping costs are not refundable under any circumstances.

Any item that was returned without my express permission will face a 50% restocking fee and any cancelled sales are subject to a 10% restocking fee.
Payment can be made through PayPal or Etsy Direct Checkout.

If you are new to Etsy and need help checking out, here is Etsy's helpful purchasing guide!

New York state residents will be charged sales tax. If you live in NYC and your purchase is under $110, I will refund your sales tax after purchase or contact me to have it removed prior to purchasing.

If you would like to reserve or hold an item, a 20% non-refundable deposit is required. I can hold items with a deposit for up to 3 days.

Layaway is accepted for items over $100 after the item has been in the shop for 24 hours. Message me if you would like to put an item on layaway and I will give you further details.

All items will be shipped within 3 business days of payment being received and usually the next day. If you need your item expedited, please contact me immediately and I will get it out as quickly as possible.

This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through or its related sites and services. This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

Information I Collect

To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest toimprove my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 7 years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

our Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

How to Contact Me

For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Laura Lanz-Frolio, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at lapoubellevintage [!at] Alternately, you may mail me at:

La Poubelle Vintage, 1002 Metropolitan Ave., #16, Brooklyn, NY 11211
