About

Vintage Treasures for you and your home

Part of being a costume designer includes appreciating and collecting vintage clothing, accessories and supplies that might one day come in handy for a show. I started working in theatre as a high schooler, which means that I have been at this for thirty years! It's time for me to let go of many of my pieces, which I have enjoyed for a long time. I opened this shop in 2008 and have met wonderful people and have heard some beautiful stories about the pieces that they find here and their reasons for purchase. Memories of home and loved ones play a huge part in this.

Every vintage piece has a story, and I do my best to share what I know. I hope that vintage never goes out of style, and that people will always be attracted to beautifully made items with a past, whether it be the humble button or a Gucci handbag.

I have another shop on Etsy, OvertheTop, and have been selling my designs here since 2006.

Shop policies

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept Paypal and credit cards via Direct Checkout. If I have not received payment or heard from you by the end of the following day, the transaction will be cancelled and the item re-listed.

Please contact me if circumstances prevent you from paying in a timely manner before purchasing, or if you have trouble with PayPal (which has been known to happen!).
Shipping
If you have a concern or an issue with quality control about your item once you've received it, please email me PRIOR to leaving feedback and we'll work it out, as it's my goal above all else to make you happy with your purchase.

INTERNATIONAL friends: I ship via First Class and Priority Mail but am happy to add insurance & express mail services. Please understand that if you decline to have these services added I can't be responsible if your package goes awol or is damaged. Please note that I take extra care in packaging when shipping internationally. Feel free to contact me with your concerns prior to purchase.

Every country's import taxes / duty fees are different and it is up to you to both be aware of your own country's laws as well as your responsibility to pay them. Falsifying shipping documents is illegal here in the US so please don't ask me to add a lesser value than to these documents than what the piece is actually worth or mark as a gift.

CUSTOMS CHARGES • You may be charged a tax or VAT on your item by your country's customs. This is payable by the buyer and is not the responsibility of the seller.

UK customers, please be aware of the 20% import vat & $8 royal mail handling fee on £15 orders, which is your responsibility.

Here is the UK government page: www.hmrc.gov.uk/customs/post/buying.htm

Tracking is not reliable on international shipments. If you would like your package insured, please contact me prior to purchase. I cannot be held responsible for lost packages that are not insured.

Due to recent large increases in the cost of shipping items internationally, and in order to keep costs reasonable for international customers, I do not automatically add tracking to international shipments. However, if you would like your package tracked as well, please let me know and I can give you a price quote for this service. While packages over $100 are insured, however, it may be difficult to recover claims of loss without tracking information. In the case of damaged or lost items, the buyer must cooperate with all requests of the insurance company in order to be reimbursed or have the item replaced. Loss or damage of items under $100 is the responsibility of the buyer unless tracking and/or insurance is requested.

After I send a package to you, I check its progress via USPS for shipping within the US. I will send you an email if I notice that they have tried to deliver your package unsuccessfully. This is my policy for packages that languish at your local post office:

If you don't pick up your items at your local post office, they will be sent back to me anywhere from two weeks to three months after I ship them. If an item is returned to me, I will send it out to you again at your expense only. If you are too busy to make a trip to your local post office, I suggest having it sent to your work address.

Priority shipping is very expensive, so please allow the maximum time for your purchase to reach you, especially at Christmas.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to be absolutely pleased with your purchase. Returns are accepted only if you contact me within 3 days of receipt of your item. You may request a refund or exchange (value of item, only, minus all shipping). Refund or exchange given after I have received the item in original condition. Please contact me to discuss options.

Clothing: Returns accepted on a case-by-case basis. Vintage items have been previously worn, cleaned and possibly mended, and may show their age. I inspect each item carefully before listing but there are usually small flaws on every vintage garment. Measurements are taken with the garment laid flat and the measurement doubled, and should be considered maximum sizes and are approximate. If you are not sure if something will fit, please ask before purchasing. I can take additional measurements for you and advise you with over 20 years of costume design and fitting experience.

I take great care to photograph and describe my items so that what you see is what you get, but if I have made a mistake, I will take the item back, on a case by case basis. Shipping charges on returns are your responsibility and the item must be insured. I regret that I cannot refund a piece that goes AWOL on its way back to me if it is not insured.

There are no returns on sale or custom items.
Additional policies and FAQs
RESERVED ITEMS

Reserves are possible for a reasonable period of time, which is no more than five days. I will email you on the fifth day and if I don't hear from you, will un-reserve it by the next morning.

INSURANCE

Insurance can be added to any shipment upon request for generally about $2 or $3. This also includes international shipments. Please contact me BEFORE PAYING for your order if you would like insurance on your package and I will send a revised invoice. I have never had a package go missing but they sometimes do not arrive within the date specified, even via Priority Mail. I am not liable for lost or damaged packages. I usually insure orders with a value over $50 at no added cost but recommend insurance on orders over $50 or OOAK items or if you're worried about the mail situation on your end.

Sales Tax will be charged to all NY State Residents automatically by Paypal.
