Note from shop owner Authentic Mid Century Modern, and other vintage objects of visual interest...

Hello all. I'm in the process of moving, so I'm going to be away from my shop for a while.

I appreciate each and every customer I've had here on etsy. I've met some really lovely people, and have especially loved the moments when something from my little shop was found by just the right person to love and care for it. I loved those perfect matches... they made me happy.

I'm not sure when I will re-open. For now, I will just wish each of you a wonderful Holiday Season and hope that the New Year brings great things to all of us.

Shop policies

Last updated on May 2, 2012
I welcome any question you may have about an item or my policies; just ask before making a purchase. I want to give you excellent customer service and communication.

A purchase will indicate that you agree with the policies of this shop, so please take a moment to read on.

My most sincere desire is that you will be happy and satisfied with your purchases here.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
You can use your credit or debit card to make a purchase through paypal for a limited time without having a paypal account. And paypal account holders can also choose to pay using a credit or debit card.

How do you make a purchase on Etsy? Look Here...

You do not need a PayPal Account to pay for your items through PayPal. Read here for info on how to do it...
http://www.etsy.com/help/article/361

If you ask me to reserve something for you, payment is expected within 24 hours, otherwise the order will be cancelled, and the item re-listed. The only exception is this: you contacted me prior to purchasing, and we both agreed to another arrangement.

For a word about reserving items in this shop, please read under the heading "Additional Policies and FAQs" on this page.

By State Law, fellow Minnesota residents pay sales tax for purchases and shipping costs (on taxable items), based on their Minnesota ship to location. I will send a revised PayPal invoice to reflect the charge based, on your shipping address. Sorry.

If you have a Minnesota tax exempt (for resale) certificate, please send me a copy if you plan on making a purchase.
Shipping
Your purchase will ship within 2-3 business days upon cleared payment. It will be shipped to your verified PayPal address, unless you let me know otherwise.

I am happy to combine shipping costs on items when purchased together and shipping to one address. Since sizes and weights are so variable with vintage goods, it can be hard to determine the Etsy "ships with another item" cost. I typically don't list a cheaper secondary cost for this reason. If you do purchase multiple items, I will recalculate shipping to reflect the new packaging and refund to your PayPal account.

Or, let me know before your purchases are made, and I can recalculate shipping costs on the items you're interested in beforehand. And best to ask me to reserve (put on hold) those items for you, if I'm changing the listing for you.

I will ship in the most cost effective method available, based on size and weight, with USPS delivery confirmation included. I will send you the confirmation number when your purchase is shipped. Transit times are provided by the carrier (USPS) and may vary with package origin and destination, especially on peak periods.

If you have a need for faster delivery, I can reserve the item for you first (if you ask), then change the shipping costs.

USPS Delivery Confirmation is added to all domestic packages. For shipping to countries other than Canada, I typically add insurance to protect the interests of both parties. I usually email the non-US buyer sometime after shipping to make sure the package arrived safely. And of course, your etsy feedback to me will let me know that your package arrived safely to you. Communication is key between customer and seller. I will work with you to find your package if delivery time appears to be longer than expected.

Currently, I am shipping items mainly to the United States and to Canada. I do ship internationally, at my discretion.

International customers are responsible for all fees associated with shipping to their respective countries. Orders that are shipped to countries outside of the United States may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country. The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient; we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for further information. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates.

The International buyer is responsible for all customs fees, duties, and import charges that are levied at the time of delivery. Please see:

Refunds and Exchanges
All sales are final and no exchanges are offered. I try to photograph and describe each item I offer here to the best of my ability, and as accurately as I can. Just as I wouldn't want a seller to misrepresent an item to me if I was purchasing it, I would not want to do that to you. But if you need more information or have a concern about any item, I really want to hear from you before you make your purchase.

If there should be a discrepancy after the fact, I will need to hear from you within 3 days of delivery. It will be the customer's responsibility to pay for the return shipping, ship in a careful and timely manner, and absolutely include USPS delivery confirmation. Original shipping charges will be non-refundable.

I wrap items very carefully for safe travel. If there is any damage to a shipped item when you receive it, II will need to hear from you within 3 days of delivery. I will need to see photographs of both the outside packaging, and the contents as they were found in that package. And of course, I will need to see pictures of damage to the item.

I appreciate your business, and I sincerely want you to be happy with your purchase.
Additional policies and FAQs
If we have conversed and you specifically ask me to reserve an item (items) for you, I will reserve an item for u24 hours. But please complete the transaction as soon as you can after the reserve has been created for you. If I have not heard from you, and the item has not been paid for in 24 hours, I'll send one reminder note to you. If the reserved listing is not paid in full within 24 hours of the reminder I sent to you, it will be taken off reserve.

I will do my best to respond to all inquiries as quickly as I can.


Thanks so much for stopping by.
