I do my best to provide an accurate description of each item. Please remember that vintage items are vintage. They have been around a long time and have had a prior life. Their minor imperfections are part of their charm. While I love vintage, I am not an expert and am trying to learn more as I go. Please convo me if you have any questions or if you notice any grave errors in my descriptions.
Returns and exchanges
I accept returns within 3 days of delivery. Please contact me immediately if you plan to return an item. Shipping charges will NOT be refunded unless I have made some grave error in the item's description. Please be sure to ask all questions PRIOR to purchase.
I accept Paypal, personal checks and money orders. Paypal payments are expected within 3 days of purchase. Personal checks are expected within 7 days of purchase. Your order will not be shipped until your payment has cleared.
I usually ship twice a week. One of my goals is to keep your shipping charges as low as possible. All orders are shipped via USPS.

I have chosen the cheapest method to ship each item from the following:
USPS First Class Mail--up to 13 oz.
Priority Mail--over 13 oz.
USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate Box--for heavier/bulkier items.
(The exception to this is if the item is too large or fragile to fit in the Flat Rate boxes.)

Items are packaged in one of the following:
Tyvek Envelope--sturdy and moisture resistant.
Bubble Envelope--semi fragile items.
USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate Box--4 sizes & no weight limit for domestic destinations.
USPS Priority Mail Box--several sizes.
I also recycle used boxes.

There is a flat $1.10 fee for packaging and handling and a $.90 fee for Delivery Confirmation. I require Delivery Confirmation on all packages within the U.S.

If your Etsy shipping address and your Paypal address do not match, please convo me to confirm which address you want me to ship to. I WILL NOT ship until I have heard from you. Your Etsy shipping address MUST appear on your personal check or money order.

My shipping rates do not include shipping insurance. If you would like to purchase insurance, please contact me PRIOR to completing checkout. I recommend insurance to our international customers as it is the only way to track international packages. My policy is that I am not responsible for your order once I place it in the hands of the USPS. The included delivery confirmation provides a tracking number for U.S. customers ONLY.

I am always willing to combine shipping. If you are purchasing multiple items, I will automatically pack them together and refund any extra shipping charges that you have paid (anything over $1.00) on the day your order ships. I also offer combined shipping with my other shops: "Vintage Repeats ~ Vintage Clothing, Jewelry and Accessories" ( and "Nifty-Knacks, Etc. ~ Homemade" ( I can also send an adjusted invoice reflecting the combined shipping charges through Paypal prior to your payment if you would prefer.

International customers are expected to be aware of and pay all customs fees, taxes, tariffs, duties, etc. that may occur at the time of delivery. Returns and refunds are not available because item(s) are facing customs fees, taxes, tariffs, duties, etc. Please be aware of the fees that you may be charged when receiving an international package from the United States.

Additional policies and FAQs
I offer a discount of 10% on all orders of $200 or more and 15% on orders over $500. The discount will be refunded to your Paypal account on the day your order ships.

My studio is smoke free, however, some of the places where I find my "treasures" are not. I launder and iron most of my linens, fabrics, clothing, etc. prior to listing. I DO NOT dry clean prior to sale.

My furry children are allowed in my studio from time to time. While I do my best to keep my items free of pet hair, occasionally I may miss something prior to shipping.

Once again, please contact me with any questions you may have. Thank you for stopping by to check things out! I hope you will come back often to see what exciting "new" finds have been listed.
