Is this this vintage item’s Last Tango? Find out at LastTangoVintage!!

So often I encounter a vintage item and I wonder who owned it; where was it through all the years; what was it's life like.
This began for me when we spent some time in a little town in France. The B & B where we stayed was a country mansion with walls, stables and a moat, owned by a family for 300 years.
The marble staircase was worn to a bowl in the center of the steps. The walls were a couple feet thick. As I lay in the down bed I thought about all the families, births, deaths and living in that home. Everything could tell a story.
It's not so grandiose a story for the things I find, but still I wonder and sometimes there are hints at what might have been. Old salt and pepper sets are delightful finds and maybe were collected by the previous owner, or perhaps graced a lively table. Vintage jewelry attended parties, weddings, went on dates. Vintage artwork oversaw daily lives.
Today we often change our home decor with things that are tossed after a few years. So a vintage item which was made to endure has the opportunity for another dance with life, maybe the last tango.

    I have a passion for all things vintage and antique. Like my mother, Karen Bates, I love the hunt and going picking for treasures that someone else was ready to discard but I wanted to “save” it, clean it up and pass it on to you, our customers!

Frequently asked questions
What to do if tracking shows as delivered but is missing.

We cannot reimburse orders that were misdelivered by the post office or stolen from a property, thank you for understanding!
A pkg may be marked delivered but arrive next day, wait a day then Contact your local post office. Make sure to call your LOCAL OFFICE, and NOT the USPS HOTLINE (this can take a lot of time, and they only tell you what your tracking says). Ask them who delivered the parcel, and ask them details about that day's delivery. Pkgs are usually scanned. Priority mail is insured.
If the parcel does not show up (extremely rare occasion), please call the Post Office and file a claim. You can call the USPS Hotline to file a claim, or you can do online.

What about FREE shipping?

Sorry about the shipping prices folks. We don't make 'em...USPS and FedEx do. . We will combine orders where we can and save a couple bucks and refund overages above $1. There's no such thing as a free lunch...or free shipping. "Free shipping" just mean the highest shipping charge is rolled into the price...people closer to me who could pay less for shipping are then paying as much for the item as folks on the coasts. Hardly free. So, we rarely offer "free" shipping. You'll only see it on the little things where we can take a hit in our pocket book and absorb some of the shipping cost.

Can I cook in or eat out of items?

If you are purchasing an item which is not normally used to hold food or for food consumption... LTV is not to be held liable. We do not advise eating from decorative plates, vessels, containers, pitchers etc. IE: If you shop at a flea market you cannot hold the seller responsible if you get sick eating out of an old metal pot.

What if the item breaks when I use it?

If a vintage item breaks with use we are not responsible. Many aged items are fragile and for display only. They were not made to withstand usage. We do NOT state they are sturdy enough for USAGE but may be sturdy items for display (in direct terms – the item is holding together despite the age but we don’t know if it will hold together if you use it for anything but display)

I changed my mind or It doesn't look the way I thought it would.

All sales are final. Please shop responsibly.
Please contact me within 3 days of receipt of purchase. If I have not been contacted by 7 days, LTV is not to be held responsible. I always work to help the buyer when resolving any issue. I want everyone to be happy!
Returning an item because you changed your mind is not a reason for return. That’s buyers’ remorse and is not a valid reason. Because the item doesn’t quite fit the décor the way you envisioned is not a valid reason. We offered to answer questions and send more pictures.
If you return an item without discussing an issue we will NOT refund.

Can I just send a purchase back and get a refund? I don't see a return label.

If you return an item without discussing an issue we will NOT refund.
If we accept a return and have given permission for the return, the return shipping is the buyers’ responsibility. NO shipping will be refunded. Refund will be for purchase price only, Returns and Refunds are given only if item was grossly misrepresented. Sending an item back is considered a forced return by Etsy and we are not required to issue a refund. If item had no-charge shipping a 15% restocking fee will be retained.
Please shop responsibly. Sales are final.

Do you accept returns, exchanges or cancellations? What's your return policy?

We accept returns if we grossly misrepresented the item. In other words the item was not as described. We really make every effort to describe items in words and pictures. Please shop responsibly and ask for more info, ask questions or for more photos.
We do not accept cancellations.
We do not make exchanges.
If an item is due for a refund, shipping is not refunded. If the item had free shipping a restocking fee of 15% of total charges will be retained.
Please read the other frequently asked questions for more details. If you still need clarifications just send us a message. We will be happy to help!

Why don't you insure glass in picture frame? What if mine breaks?

We don't insure glass over 14" since it is more likely to be broken the larger the piece. We have had very good luck thus far with only 2 claims for glass breakage. Which leads us to what happens if yours breaks-
You may file a claim with the shipping company (USPS). Please photo the package to show any damage as well as the item. You can get replacement glass at a frame shop or store like Hobby Lobby.
If the art is damaged the claim will then be for your entire cost and shipping as it will be considered a total loss. We will assist in your claim however we can, but the shipper wants to hear from you.

My item was damaged when I received it. What happens now?

First - take a photo of the package - external packaging, internal packaging
Second- take a photo of the damaged item.
Third - contact me.
If it was insured through USPS I will give you the link to begin the claim.
If it was insured through Etsy I will begin the claim process and I will send you the docs to verify for them.
I do not pay the claim.
I do not control the time it takes to get a refund.
We will assist however we can in the claim process but they want to hear from you.
Once it leaves my hands it is between you and the shipper.
Protect yourself and make a claim easier - if a package has had some trauma when it arrives - take a photo, then more photos as you open it and then photos of the damaged item.
We wrap to protect.

Can I negotiate price? Are prices firm? Can I ask for a discount?

Only where stated. We are more like Pottery B*rn than a flea market. We set a price we determine to be reasonable for the market. Sometimes we put an item on sale so you might catch it then. BUT we do offer layaway, so if something doesn't fit your budget you can take a little extra time to pay for it. There is no additional charge for this service but there is a 10% restocking fee if you change your mind and want a refund.
