Announcement   Every piece in my shop is handpicked with attention to shape, texture, finish, and a high level of craftsmanship. You will not be disappointed with your purchase!

I gladly answer questions and will entertain offers; please convo me!

Our home is smoke-free and our family includes a cat and a dog. Our cat, Oreo, sometimes visit me in my Etsy office and my sewing room; our dog Bonnie does not. The bulk of my inventory is hanging or stored neatly in bins or on shelves. SmalI items, like jewelry and belt buckles, are stored in boxes. I steam/clean/launder and/or press my finds before I list them. Doing this helps me to spot any flaws or conditions that need mention, as well as any mending that might need done.

Peep my daughter's shop here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/volkerwandering
She adores most anything from any decade, especially dresses and skirts and most things owl and mushroom.

About

I adore vintage!

Remarkable vintage accessories and clothing. Now and again you will find my handmade articles of apparel and function.

Each item in our shop has been personally handpicked with attention to shape, texture, finish, and a high level of craftsmanship. I pursue objects from the 1940's to the 1990's.

Our home is smoke-free and we have a cat and a dog. Oreo, our cat, will sometimes visit me in my Etsy studio; Bonnie, our dog, does not. The bulk of my inventory is hanging or stored neatly in bins or on shelves. SmalI items, like jewelry and belt buckles, are stored in plastic bins. I often clean and/or launder and press my finds before I list them. Doing this helps me to spot any flaws or conditions that need mention, as well as any mending that needs done.

Regarding my prices, I will consider reasonable offers; please contact me.

I'm a Navy brat from a family with five children. I was the oldest and hand-me-downs were the norm for my siblings. My family moved nearly every year and we lived in many places around the globe. My mom taught me how to sew in the 1970s. I love sewing... thanks, Mom! I love creating things; I especially like to see how things turn out. My favorite thing is to take vintage fur and leather garments and re-make them into handbags and totes!

My daughter also loves vintage, particularly all things owl and mushroom. She takes vintage dress patterns and vintage bed linens and makes the most darling dresses! Peep them in her shop: volkerwandering.etsy.com

Hello. I really delight in creating things. I especially like to make handbags out of vintage leather and fur garments. I dabble in jewelry making and the altering of vintage or costume pieces of jewelry. I love vintage items that offer a glimpse of its rich and varied history.

Insurance is available (at an additional cost); I am not responsible for items lost in the mail.

International buyers are responsible for paying any customs fees once the order arrives in their country.
Refunds and Exchanges
I realize you are shopping without the luxury of seeing the item for yourself when you visit my shop; that is why I am so thorough in my listings and post bright and clear photos. Should we decide a return is necessary, these are the conditions in which a refund will be issued.

CRITERIA OF RETURN OF AN ITEM:
1) Buyer PAYS for return shipping.
2) Buyer MUST INSURE the package. If it is NOT insured and lost, it will be IMPOSSIBLE to offer a refund.
3) Once I have received the return and it has been inspected, I will refund the purchase price of the item ONLY. I will not refund ANY shipping costs whatsoever.

Should you find a handmade item does not meet your expectations... contact me immediately. The above protocol for CRITERIA OF RETURN OF AN ITEM MUST be carried out in order for me to receive the item(s) and to then issue the refund.

CUSTOM MADE ITEM:
I have the right to refuse to accept the return of a custom item. A custom item has been specially made for YOU. I MAY or MAY NOT accept an item for return. The above protocol for CRITERIA OF RETURN OF AN ITEM MUST be carried out in order for me to receive the item(s) and to then issue the refund.

VINTAGE ITEM:
I have the right to refuse return of a vintage item. I am reluctant to issue refunds on vintage items for a variety of reasons. My listings are very precise; I list EVERYTHING about each item, good and bad. I include accurate descriptions and photos of labels, tags, stampings, marks, measurements, and condition of each item. I sometimes offer suggestions for maintaining, repairing, or cleaning an item. If you have purchased a vintage item and are not 100% satisfied with it, contact me immediately so we can address the possibility of a return.
