Very fast shipping... Goes the extra mile in packaging and presentation; not just tossed into a box and mailed. It's always in the details and Colleen at odds & threads pays attention to them! Very impressed to say the least. Thanks! Will be back for more.
Thank you for your interest!

I will not respond to those queries. I cannot do trades at this time.
I will gladly reserve an item for you for 24 hours.
Delivery Confirmation is included with the cost of shipping to domestic addresses. All of my items are packed with care. Sensitive items are shipped in bubble mailers to protect them, which are also included in the cost of shipping.
I WILL do my best to try and help you meet a deadline if it's important, but please let me know ASAP!
If your Delivery Confirmation number states that your package has been "Delivered" on USPS.com it means that your order has been delivered. I am NOT responsible for LOST or STOLEN items.
I ship to the address that is given on your Etsy receipt, unless you notify me otherwise.
+++ I am happy to ship to International addresses! +++
Please contact me for a shipping quote if your country is not included in my listing!
To international customers: I am so sorry, but I can not be held responsible for how long the shipping takes! Unfortunately, customs can hold a package for as long as they see fit. I am shipping International about ONE time per week, so I cannot guarantee ANY deadlines on International shipping. I will refund any overages in shipping that exceed the cost of shipping plus materials! I do NOT make any profit from the cost of shipping. Also, please be aware that your country may have an additional duty tax on incoming packages, which is the responsibility of you, the buyer.
Again, don't hesitate to contact me with any questions!
Refunds and Exchanges
Please notify me within TWO DAYS of receiving your shipment if you feel it has been GROSSLY misrepresented in the listing. We can certainly start a conversation to resolve the issue, if it is within this time frame!
In the case of an approved return, the shipment costs will be the buyer's responsibility - meaning you will receive in returns the original cost of the ITEM only. The return shipment must be made via a method of shipping that includes a tracking number and signature upon receipt.
All items will be expected to be in the EXACT same condition that it was in when it shipped out -- so if you have worn it or modified it in any way I am sorry, but I cannot be able to offer any type of refund or credit.
Please see additional information about the conditions of buying vintage.
Additional policies and FAQs
There may be minor imperfections and normal vintage wear and tear. I will ALWAYS point out any major flaws and minor flaws that I see in an item! Please understand that on very rare occasions, the teeny tiny minor things are overlooked. If you are concerned about the condition of an item, feel free to contact me for additional information or photos that can help you decide. I would rather you ask me 30 questions than have you be disappointed with your purchase! I would not sell anything that I would not buy for myself.
