Announcement   Hello visitors to my e-shoppe!

This announcement comes January 1st, 2018, I wish you a Happy New Year:-)
I have kept my Etsy shop open, but have deactivated all but one listing, as an experiment, as you may have noticed. I have a second employment since June 2016, and limiting my income rather than having 2 incomes until I retire, may benefit me more than combined higher earnings. Rather than CLOSE my shop, it is in essence kept open, I can clean house, and fine tune it, and hopefully it can be "revived" at a later date, or in an emergency, (such as job loss, injury, etc) .

My sincere thanks to all who have been my lovely customers, I do love Etsy, for the great customers, you are the best!! I love finding the item that makes someone happy, cause it's something I liked too:-) It is very rewarding. Thanks very much for your support, and look for me sometime in the future, I will know more after a years hiatus, whether or not to have a fully stocked Etsy site, in addition to my job, or not.
Have a wonderful new year, in 2018.

Please note, you must scroll down past feedback remarks on the item page to get to shipping info, then enter your location to pull up ship cost to your area, thankyou:-)

About

Finding Just The Right Owner

I've always loved older things,,,came from a long line of artists and collectors, and archivists, preservationists...it's in the blood as they say. It is also very GREEN to recycle and not be buying something new because it's wonderful,...used is just fine, with me.
I love handmade things just as much as vintage or antique items, possibly more, because someone touched it,,,brought it to life from their heart and hands!...my Grandma was the epitome of a craftswoman..sewing, quilting, writing, photography, knitting, rug making, cooking...come to think of it, so was my Mom:-)who was a lifelong artist. I believe that much of what you ARE, is passed down, imprinted. From my Mom, I received music, love of color. From my Pa, I inherited my singing voice.
When I'm not finding just the right owner for something that caught my eye, I'm strumming a guitar, or uke, and composing a song. I can be found as cinderellalifestyle at youtube, sharing my musical heart.
I began selling vintage clothing and decor in 1975 , at flea markets and shows, and have had retail vintage stores in the past, as well. I began selling on the internet in 1999 at Ebay where I conducted about 2000+ sales under one business from '99 to 2003, and another 2000 sales from 2003 to present. Another good number of sales and happy customers have blessed me here at Etsy, (800+ wow!!) since I started out. If you click my feedback, or the number of sales, you can peruse the sorts of things I find to sell, as etsy keeps a history of seller's "sold items". Things you find in my shop, appealed to me, and that is why they are here:-)
Etsy to me, is like a breath of fresh air. And I honestly feel that the window of time a seller is allowed for a posting is critical to selling it, especially considering the millions of items for sale online! Thank you Etsy, for being out of the ordinary, and fun, and practical!
...bottom line, it's the Etsy shopper who makes selling and the work that goes into it, golden. My customers are always special, and unique. My sincere thanks for your patronage, and support.

Thankyou for visiting my e-shoppe! :-) I specialize in vintage clothing for men and women, vintage fashion accessories, home decor and textiles. I've dealt in vintage goods since 1975, first wearing vintage in 1972 or so..:-)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I like the things I sell, something about the item appealed to me, first. I also like happy customers, so I try to find things that are in very good condition. I mention and describe any flaws in honesty (which can be inherent in vintage used, preowned items) . I communicate with my customers via emails that are generated by Etsy, and I check my mail, every day. Mailings often go out to the mail, same day as purchase!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
  • Money Order
Returns and exchanges
I gladly accept returns and exchanges
Contact me within: 14 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 30 days of delivery
I don't accept cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
I PREFER "No Returns, all sales final", simply because I scrutinize and describe in full, each item, and also lack time to carry out returns, and the buyer is faced with covering the cost back to me, out of pocket! (refund is item plus original ship cost only). However, I WILL accept returns in which case the buyer pays the shipping back to me, (I issue original cost of item plus original ship cost). Please read the below info:

My Item return policy RULES: I must be notified upon your receipt and dissatisfaction, so please email me right away. The Item MUST BE TURNED around in the mail within 3 days of your receipt of item, and MUST be returned in the same condition it left me in!! Not worn, etc (Date delivered is recorded on the USPS tracking info right here at Etsy)
PLEASE, I don't want to hear from you, 1-2-3 weeks after a transaction, requesting a refund, if something does not fit, an immediate return is required.

For a mutual happy transaction please request additional information BEFORE you purchase the item, because I'd rather go the extra mile and have you NOT buy something that does not fit, or is not as expected. And please read carefully, the description!! Buyer must pay out of pocket for shipping expense back to seller, in case of true unhappiness with order.....in a case where I truly overlooked a substantial flaw,...I may also reimburse the return ship cost. I try and inspect all vintage items carefully and photograph fully, to avoid this sort of thing.
Payment
I accept both Etsy direct checkout and Paypal. Your item is often shipped on the same day as purchased,..when possible. Otherwise the following day. Saturday purchases too, altho SOME Saturday sales are mailed Mondays as I must travel out of town for Saturday mailings.
Shipping
I gladly mail overseas, please scroll down page past customer feedback, to find shipping charges. You can enter in your country or zip code to pull up a price. If you can't get results, please just write me, I'm happy to assist.

Please write if you want a quote based on your location. OR if you need it FAST,,!!
I work quickly to make your deadlines, adjust to express if needed.

For US customers, I try to save you money when possible. If parcel post or first class are options, I will offer them, First Class is now a savings for lightweight items. Priority is used for most mailings. A two pound parcel shipped within my State is much less than a CA to NY 2 pound mailing, for example, the closer you live, the less cost, per shipping. Shipping depends on size, weight, distance.

INTERNATIONAL mailings must include the price paid and be properly invoiced to arrive safe to you. The buyer is liable for your countries customs duties whatever they may be.
Additional policies and FAQs
Sometimes I'm in a hurry listing many items, and I fail to include precise measurements, and details. PLEASE, just write and inquire if I have left something out.., I'm happy to dash and get additional and helpful information to you! thanks for your patience, in advance!:-)
