About

Vintage Stories' Story (see more on our blog: http://truevintagestories.blogspot.com/ )

Vintage Stories is, hand-to-heart, an aspiring person/business that's about finding-the-right-person-for the wonderful thing. A business whereby we/I, with a team of deer, serve as the 'middle people,' so to speak, for delightful and useful things (upscale career jackets, chiffon dreams called scarves, shape/color/texture-driven serve/kitchenware, obscure & rare records, books worth a place in a new library...) that are worth your time and, well, hard-earned/saved-dollars. Nice t' meetcha. Fresh coffee?

Blessings & black cherries,

Mary/Marie Provost/former girl scout/former baby/spirituality nut

    I'm a poet, singer, & vintage obsessive. My love of uniforms may come partially from my one year in Catholic school (pic above). Then there's being in a Navy family, & the Girl Scouts...

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
ATTENTION, seniors (55 & over) & students: Save 10% when you spend 23.00 or more - must be prepared to supply photo of self with item after purchase, for possible use in our blog, to receive 10% refund - thanks!

PAYMENT OPTIONS: Etsy direct checkout & Paypal can be used - both take credit cards.

RESERVES: See something you love, but aren't in a position to get just yet? Convo re: reserving it for you. Items can be reserved for up to a week without a deposit. Longer than that, a 15% nonrefundable deposit is requested.
Shipping
***Shipping is combined on nearly everything. To see multiple shipping rates, send a convo or add two or more items to your cart to see combined shipping, then remove if you decide against it.***

++ Concerned about getting something in time for a birthday or holiday? Send a convo & you'll receive a prompt response (we're known for fast shipping!).

U.S. Shipping: Expedited (5-6 business day delivery estimate; longer for larger/heavier items; sometimes shorter for very light items) is used for almost everything. Priority upgrades available whenever possible.

U.S.tracking & insurance: Postal tracking is included unless noted otherwise in a listing. Insurance is included for many fragile items (listed as such in the shipping blurbs for those items). If the listing doesn't say, feel free to inquire about adding insurance by sending a convo with your location *before* purchase - the item will be reserved for you, with insurance added to the shipping cost before you check out .

Outside the U.S.: All international customs & import fees are the responsibility of the buyer. Vintage Stories has had no issues with those to date, but it's a big world. Also, if you want to get several items & combined shipping isn't available for one or more of them, send a convo before purchase with your location & we'll respond re: whether shipping can be further reduced - thanks!
Refunds and Exchanges
* USA Return Policy (see end of Refund Policy section for items that are not eligible for return):

Exchanges for clothes/shoes: Exchanges on clothing & shoes (other than hose, swimwear & lingerie) are available for most clean, unworn, unaltered, undamaged items that are put back in the mail within five business days of receipt (any exception, such as for a fragile vintage blouse, will usually be noted within the listing). Buyer receives return credit for amount of the original item. Buyer pays shipping to return original item &, when the new item costs more, anything over the cost of original item. Vintage Stories pays shipping for most new items within the U.S. (shoes would be an exception).

Refunds within the U.S.: A refund will be issued if a significant error has been made in a listing description or if demonstrable damage has occurred in transit (photos may be requested). To be eligible for refund, an item should be put in the mail within five business days of receipt, in the original condition, with no damage, change, or alteration of any sort. Vintage Stories will send a mailing address to copy or print out. We will pay for a return method of our choice.

** Outside the U.S. Exchanges/Returns: Since the cost to ship most items back tends to be high, international refunds are discouraged unless an item has been damaged in transit (in which case the buyer should be able to provide photos showing any damage) or has been significantly misrepresented. Outside the U.S., buyers pay return shipping.

***Not eligible for return unless Vintage Stories has made a significant error in the description): Kitchen, dining, books, vinyl records, hose/lingerie (except half slips), swimwear, kits, toys, games, art, prints. Vintage electronics (electrical or battery-operated clocks, light-up decor, telephones, etc.) are sold as-is - they're tested and described carefully before being listed. We're not able to accept returns of vintage appliances, electronics, battery operated clocks or plug-in decor****

Thanks so much!
