* hello *
my name is vanessa and i am the keeper of this little space in the world of etsy. le fox vintage came about from a desire to create a shop that expresses who i am. the name is taken from the foxiest woman i have ever known, my grandma fox.

though i am new to selling on etsy, i have sold vintage items before. i've streamlined my policies based on my experiences as a seller as well as a buyer. all of the items in my store have been procured by yours truly, a very persnickity {i NEVER get to use that word} vintage shopper. i only buy things that i personally love, not just things that i think will sell. i truly have a passion for vintage fashion. {and am also a damn fine poet}.

wanna know more about me?

Accepted payment methods

  • Money Order
  • Check
Returns and exchanges
* returns *
* are accepted on a case by case basis.
* i think the most fair way to figure out the "who pays for return shipping" conundrum should be based on the reason for return.
* however, i most importantly want you to enjoy and love your item. if you don't, just let me know. i'm a very mellow lady who doesn't normally bite. :)
* payment *
* the preferred form of payment is paypal.
* however, i understand that for varying reasons, some people choose against using credit cards, so i will also accept money orders {i would advise having some sort of tracking/confirmation on this payment form} and checks {they will have to clear before the item is mailed out}.
* shipping *
* i love shipping to the U.S.A. and abroad!!!

* domestic shipping
* i usually ship USPS priority because of the fact that it includes a tracking number. i will always try to make this as economical for you as possible. i also, whenever i can, try to reuse shipping boxes. i'm a recyclopath. it's part of the reason i love vintage so much!

* international
* international shipping starts at $13.95. {this does not include customs or duties, which you might have to pay on top of your purchase price. it would be a good idea to know your countries policies regarding these fees}.
* international packages under 4lbs. are shipped via USPS First Class International Mail. this shipping method averages 7-14 business days to reach it's destined country.
* packages exceeding 4lbs. are shipped via USPS Global Priority mail. this shipping method averages 6-10 business days to reach it's destined country.
* customs offices may delay estimated arrival dates. this is beyond my control, as I am not involved in the customs process, sorry.

**i will of course combine shipping.
Additional policies and FAQs
***the sordid details***

* vintage = 20+ years in age, and usually used. your item likely had an amazing life the 1st time around. light general wear and minor imperfections consistent with age are normal, and to be expected. i like to think of them as beauty marks.
* all items are decribed to the best of my ability, including any known flaws {teeny tiny flaws may be missed, esp. in items described as "good", "fair", and "as found"}.
* please keep in mind that all monitors display colors differently
* my items are carefully hand selected. i've travelled far and wide collecting some amazing treasures. i have a strong affinity for the 1960s and 70s, but try my best to accommodate every era.
* many items are complimentary to current trends - perfect for fashion forward ladies with an eye on the past. quench your runway cravings at a fraction of the cost.
* i recommend knowing your measurements when buying vintage. tag sizes vary from brand to brand + era to era. i list *estimated* modern sizes to help compensate, but tag size variation is true to this day. please rely on measurements listed.
* little fyi~measurements listed are of the garment itself, not your measurements. i would advise you to find something in your closet who's fit you adore, and measure that. it should give you a good idea of what to look for.
* measurements are provided in inches.
* to display ideal fit, items larger than models are often clipped in back for photos. this will most definitely be noted.
* full skirted items may be modeled with a crinoline to display ideal silhouette. unless otherwise noted, crinolines/petticoats aren't included. also, unless noted, any accessories used as styling props are not included.
* some items are shortened and/or otherwise altered into more desireable styles.
* i try to launder machine washable garments prior to shipment. the exceptions to this are heavily embelished items, furs, antique textiles, and delicates such as silk and rayon. some items will be dry-cleaned, and some furs have been cleaned + conditioned. if you would prefer that your item not be laundered, just let me know.
