Handcrafted and vintage collide

I started designing under the name Ollie Otson when I was fifteen. At that time, I sold custom purses on LiveJournal, before eventually switching over to the trifold wallets I currently make and still sell in my shop.

After moving to Savannah, Georgia in the fall of 2007 to start college at the Savannah College of Art and Design as a Production Design major with a focus in Costume Design, I began to sell on Etsy and have sold various handmade items, from purses, to wallets, to clothing, to jewelry since.

In the summer of 2009, I moved to California and began to work at a vintage store in Burbank. This is when my true love for vintage began. I realized I could take my love and knowledge of costume design and combine it with everyday fashion. I was hooked.

A year later, I moved back to Savannah and began seeking and selling vintage. My Etsy shop went from mainly handmade, to mostly vintage with some handmade thrown in using vintage and vintage-inspired aspects.

I strive to bring the my shoppers high quality merchandise that really makes a statement and speaks for the era. I'm generally drawn to colors and prints or anything intricate, whether it be beading or appliqué work.

Vintage is what I love, and I love seeing my customers happy with their purchase and feeling great about what they are wearing. It's a great feeling!

All PayPal order payments must be received within 3 days of purchase. If you are having problems with the site or paying, please drop me a convo to inform me, and we can work it out.

For cash or money order payments, you have ten days for me to receive payment. If you need more time, please let me know.

I'm very understanding in an instance, so please just let me know what's up in any situation, and we can work it out.
I like to keep shipping costs low. For US buyers, most items ship out USPS First Class Mail. I use Priority Mail Flat-Rate boxes on multiple-item orders as well as larger and oddly-shaped items. Each item comes with a tracking number. Insurance or an upgrade in shipping is available upon request for an additional charge.

All international orders are shipped First Class in order to keep costs low. If you would like an upgrade to Priority, please let me know so I can calculate the shipping cost. Also, all customs taxes and duties are the responsibility of the buyer. I will not mark an item as "Gift" to eliminate any customs fees you may have to pay -- lying on a customs form is a felony and can cost me my business license.

I am not responable for lost or damaged items in the mail. If you would like to purchase insurance, let me know, otherwise it's out of my hands. Sorry.

I ship out orders as soon as possible, but please allow 1-3 business days for order processing.
Refunds and Exchanges
I do not give refunds or exchanges on items that do not fit. Please, take a moment to check measurements against your own or a garment that fits well. If you have any questions on an item's fit, please feel free to convo me with questions.

If you feel an item was misrepresented on the site and would like a refund, please get in contact with me within 5 days of receiving your order to work out the details. Please, do not leave negative feedback until you have contacted me with your complaints.

Custom orders or altered items cannot be returned

Items damaged or lost in transit are NOT my responsibility. I wrap and package each item in order to insure a safe delivery to the recipient. I put a tracking number on each package, but insurance is available upon request for an additional cost.
