Q : HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO SHIP TO MY COUNTRY ?

A : If you do not see your country of residence listed for a shipping price, that means you fall into the " EVERYWHERE ELSE " category & shipping is automatically calculated when checking out. Just add the item [ s ] to your cart and viola!

Q: CAN YOU REFUND ME ANY SHIPPING OVERAGES?

A : We DO NOT refund excess shipping . Shipping costs cover the time spent for packaging & various materials ( not just the actual cost at the Post Office )

Q: WHAT COURRIER SERVICE DO YOU USE, CAN I ADD TRACKING? INSURANCE?

A : if your package has not arrived in a reasonable time it may be possible that the following has happened. please check this list before freaking out :

- DID YOU: supply the correct address on your paypal / shipping address ?

- DID YOU: make sure you're most current address is up to date ?

- DO YOU : live in an apartment / duplex/ flat/ hotel ? the package may have not been able to be delivered. If this is the case, check your local closest P.O to see if they have a package waiting for you. *** Bring a current I.D & other proof of persons. Do this ASAP, if you wait too long, the parcel may be sent back to us + you are responsible for the 2nd shipping payment.

Your order may also be still in transit, we are located in Northern California. If you are outside of the US it can take a long time to reach you [ ETA is normally 2 - 6 weeks ]. Packages at times are held at customs for days / weeks , adding more travel time than anticipated. If this is the case, we sincerely apologize but are unable to avoid these instances. It rarely happens, but rest assured in over 2,000 sales no item has gone missing altogether!

About

Nanometer Vintage

Nanometer Vintage started out in Northern California in the spring of 2005. Initially selling handmade clothing & accessories resourced from purely vintage fabrics the business remained a part time gig for the first few years. From 2007 - 2010 Nanometer Vintage began selling one of a kind repurposed jewelry amongst local boutiques, trade shows & friends. Shortly after a blessing in disguise Nanometer Vintage opened its virtual doors to the world : www.etsy.com/shop/nanometer. The once part time craft slowly turned into a full fledge passion.

Decades of ritualistic thrift store shopping + garage sale hunting helped build a prize collection of clothing & accessories. Nanometer is dedicated to supplying customers worldwide with the most unique & gently loved gems of yesteryear.
