The bench is just as lovely and well-made as it looks in the photo--I am delighted!! The shop owner couldn't have been nicer or more helpful.

About

Locale Vintage: Vintage Findings and Handmade Treasures that support Animal Rescue

I started my shop on May 11, 2010 as a way to share my vintage treasure hunting spoils and my handmade jewelry with folks across the globe. I originally sold my handmade jewelry at craft fairs and boutiques, but when I discovered Etsy I knew that it would be the future of my business. Etsy gives artists so much flexibility and creative freedom. It was exactly what Locale Vintage needed to come into its own.

My creative influences often come from experiences and places I have been. Having lived in California for 15+ years of my life exposed me to the clean lined splendor that is mid century modern, and my childhood and teenage years in Alabama going to auctions and good old yard sales educated me on what to look for in older antiques and handmade crafts. My handmade jewelry is influenced by vintage eras such as the 1950s but is also strongly influenced by the natural world around me, especially the ocean and the mountains, where I feel the strongest connection to my creative spirit. Occasionally I get out my sewing machine and those items have made their way to my Etsy store as well. You never know what that machine will help me whip up!

One of my main goals with Locale Vintage is to raise money for animal rescue. Two rescue groups that are close to my heart are the French Bulldog Rescue Network and Boston Buddies Boston Terrier Rescue of Southern California. My husband and I adopted our two fur babies from these rescues and it was the best decision we ever made. I donate a percentage of all profits to these two groups as well as other animal rescue groups.

Locale Vintage is a proud member of the Vintage Etsy Society Street Team and Team Etsy for Animals.

Currently, I am in my second year of a doctoral program in Public Health at Oregon State University. If there is one thing I have learned about health from the past year and half, its to make sure that you spend time doing the things that make you happiest. Curating my shop and creating my jewelry keep my inner fire lit.

Welcome to Vintage Locale's shop. We are happiest when you are happy, or when Bubba and Loofa are happy.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Buy with Apple Pay
  • Pay with Sofort
  • Pay with iDeal
  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Paypal is our only accepted method of payment.

Once an item is placed in your cart it shows up on our screen as sold. Payment for an item placed in your cart is required within 24 hours of your placement of that item in your cart. This gets rid of the, "did they forget to pay?" question on our end and we don't have to wonder what happened. If an item is not paid for through Paypal within the 24 hours we just cancel the sale and relist the item in our store. Please feel free to repurchase that item when you are ready to buy it. Don't take it personally, we do want you to buy that item if you really want it, we just don't do "holds" or "reserves" unless you convo us and let us know. The reason for this is that our items are all one of a kind and we can't relist them for others to purchase. If there is an item you are just "thinking about purchasing" and are not sure you want it yet, please add it to your "Favorites". Favorites is a a great way to look at all the items you want and then select the best one to purchase.

We use favorites all the time to make our shopping lists.

Cancellation policy: orders may be canceled if they have not been shipped. After an order is shipped it can not be canceled.
Shipping
USPS is our preferred method of shipment, but in certain circumstances other carriers are used as well. We try to keep shipping costs for our customers low by using USPS. If you have specific shipment requirements please send us a detailed message regarding these requirements.

For large items we use Greyhound Freight. You will need to pick these items up at your local Greyhound station.

It has been mentioned by one of our past customers, through our feedback, that Greyhound Freight did not call them when their item arrived. Please note that you should call the Greyhound station that your item is being shipped to on that date of its expected arrival. This way you cover all of your bases. Locale Vintage can not be responsible for informing you of when your package arrives at the Greyhound location it is being shipped to. You must follow through with this shipping company. If Greyhound shipping does not sound like something you would like to use, please convo us before you purchase the item. We can arrange to use UPS or Fed Ex for an additional shipping charge.

International shipping: We use USPS. If you would like a tracking number for your international shipment, please convo me before you purchase. There is an additional charge of $12.00 for an international tracking number that must be added to the item BEFORE you purchase it. International shipping is not fast while using the USPS. Sometimes I am pleasantly surprised and an items arrives at its international destination within 2 weeks. Sometimes it can take up to a month. If you would like to use FedX, please convo me and I will let you know the cost difference. Please do this before you purchase the item or it will be shipped USPS.

If you have any questions about shipping please convo us before you purchase an item. Thanks!
Refunds and Exchanges
Exchanges on similarly valued items only, buyer pays for return shipping costs. Complete Refunds will be given if item arrives damaged. Damaged item will need to be sent back to Locale Vintage in order to receive refund. Locale Vintage will pay for return shipping of damaged item. If an item arrives damaged please convo us immediately. We insure all fragile items with the USPS so that you will get a full refund if it is damaged in shipment.

If you change your mind about purchasing an item before it has been shipped and no longer want the item, convo us within 24 hours of your purchase and we will cancel the sale. If you do not convo us within 24 hours we will not cancel the sale. Once an item is shipped the sale can not be canceled. On some occasions, we might ship your order before you contact us, this happens when we ship the same day that an order comes in on. We are sorry if that happens and we can not cancel a sale once it has shipped.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please leave us feedback when you receive your order. We love to hear from our customers.

This month's fundraiser is for the French Bulldog Rescue Network a non profit group that rescues and rehomes French Bulldogs. Please visit their website www.frenchbulldogrescue.org

Pricing: Have you noticed that our prices are lower than other sellers that are selling the same thing. We have noticed this too! We don't know why this is, but it is probably because we won't price something for more than we would expect to pay for it at an antique or vintage store. We are bargain shoppers and want our customers to benefit from the bargains we find.

If you would like a clothing item altered to specific sizes we can arrange for that to happen, but it will cost you. That is why we reccommend that you do the altering yourself so you can find the best price.

Our store is run by Katie and Wayne. We are a husband and wife team. Katie finds the inventory and Wayne helps with the photography of the items (we are new at this and still working on our photography skills!) and the managing of the store.

Jewelry resizing: we do not resize rings. It is best if you have your own jeweler do that for you.
