My vintage fashions, accessories, jewelry and home decor are lovingly discovered, acquired for you, and will never be realized again. I know as soon as I see, touch and closely examine the workmanship and condition of my vintage items, that they are very special, unique and will continue to be loved (and/or gifted) by you.

Designing my hand made lovelies is a time consuming process, and I enjoy every phase: from deciding on a design and style, mix of materials, colors, patterns, scale sizes, textures and trimmings, to acquiring those varied raw goods, pre-washing fabrics used, and the hands on creation of your future possessions.
You may be assured that my designs (whether fashions, accessories or home decor) will be unique, and often recycled, repurposed, eco friendly and eclectic!
I alone, with my two busy hands, am the one researching, shopping vintage, acquiring (and maintaining!) quite a stash of raw sewing supplies, designing and creating my designs, photographing, styling, meticuously writing descriptions, promoting my store; maintaining a social media presence for my store, as well as for documenting my daily pursuits of live music, beauty, beach, terrace garden, dance, culture, art, films, literature, trends, food and wine, fitness, travel and gorgeous sunsets, all within a dizzying [interspersed with bouts of reflecting, recharging and creating] New York City lifestyle!

International shipping charges posted for each item for purchases paid for by buyer to seller do not include any customs duties, provincial/state taxes or import charges at buyer's address and country destination, as they are the sole responsibility of the buyer. Please contact your appropriate government agency regarding the additional costs that apply to imports to your area. These duties/taxes will be COD (cash on delivery) and are payable to the carrier upon delivery. [ I will not mark my merchandise items as gifts, as that is customs fraud.] International shipments may be subject to unforeseeable delays such as weather and worldwide mail services holidays.

★ Most of my buyers find my items in Google searches that bring them to paroliro, and they create an Etsy account to buy my items. It makes me very happy that people begin their wonderful Etsy relationship here at my store, and I'm proud to be the reason they arrived here!

★ Vintage items often have slight imperfections, scratches, or even chips. Many of the vintage items in my store are up to over 70 years old, so I honestly point these (age appropriate) imperfections out, and I feel they don't negatively impact the beauty of each piece.

★ Sizing (if there is a size label on the vintage item) for vintage clothing items does not compare at all to today’s (also variable!) sizing. I take pains to provide you with exacting *FLAT* side to side measurements for each item posted at my store, and ask you to compare those *FLAT* measurements I provide to the *FLAT* side to side measurements of similar blouses, lingerie, camisoles, slips, nightgowns, leggings, swimsuits, sweaters, jackets, coats, pants, jeans, trousers, dresses and clothing items you own that FIT YOU WELL NOW.

★ I always combine multiple purchases to try and reduce shipping costs, so please ignore "with another item “ shipping prices shown for each item (which are approximate and variable depending on the size, weight and destination of combined items) and "CONVO" me if you would like to purchase more than one item. [♥Or if you are in a hurry, any excess postage charges will always be refunded to you after they are realized when your package is weighed and ready to ship!]

About

Creating = JOY!

I opened an account on ETSY two years before opening my shop in 2009. I have always designed, sewn, knit, written, photographed and created as part of my New York City lifestyle.

When ETSY added the "Vintage" category, I jumped on board. I have always loved to scour the globe for treasures and trinkets, and I know what I like when I see it, whether it is vintage clothing, jewelry or home goods.

Clothing today has become mass produced, of non sustainable fibers and priced cheaper than a movie ticket. I am proud to find fashions and items beautifully designed and created in the past. There was much more pride in workmanship, and classic fibers are made to last and cherish. The handwork, seams, bead work, buttons and zippers are a beauty to behold. Buying vintage means recycling, and that makes me smile.

Whenever I touch and find vintage items of clothing or home goods, I fantasize about their provenance (back story) and who will come to own them next. I wonder where they live, how they will come to me for this one item, and how it will make them happy.

I love to be part of this community, where I know at any hour of the day and night, hundreds and thousands of us are happily creating, fulfilling our dreams, and smiling.

[In light of our ETSY CEO's "Town Hall" webinar (10/1/13) allowing ETSY shop owners to hire as large a staff, collective collaboration, factory or manufacturer to execute, create and implement our designs as long as we retain authorship, responsibility and transparency, I share that my handmade and upcycled items are my original OOAK (one-of-a-kind) paroliro designs, from start to finish. I shop for the vintage fabric, I take time to create a design, make patterns and implement my creations with my brain, my trusty sewing machine and my own two hands! Even small handmade items can take me at least *6 hours* from planning start to hands on finish, [not including additional time spent photographing, writing descriptions, posting and future marketing of the piece, as well as wrapping, packaging, printing shipping labels, waiting in line at the post office, ETC].

Thank you for supporting my "one person shop" by visiting!

    My days are consumed with all aspects of my creative outlet. I have about 30 projects in planning stages at all times and wait for that spontaneous burst of hands on creating to bite me! Once I get on a roll, there is no stopping me.

    Eva's unbridled enthusiam, sense of style, 24/7 availability and social media savvy make her the brains behind paroliro. She is a philanthropist, hands on supporting our local food pantry every spare moment she is not devoting to paroliro on ETSY.

  • Harlow LaBella

    Harlow LaBella is Eva's twin. Personality wise, she is an extrovert, out and about New York City's night scene when she is not shopping vintage. A voracious reader of all things social and a killer dancer. Harlow's presence at paroliro is a gift!

  • Susie

    Susie, the youngest member of paroliro, is wise beyond her years. She would rather be out in Central Park: sun, rain or snow. Fear not, she only works less than 1 hour a month...

Dear Buyer:

Thank you for shopping at paroliro on ETSY.

I appreciate your support of my solely owned and operated store, where I am responsible for every original OOAK paroliro design, and lovingly shop for unique and gorgeous rare (never to be realized again) vintage items.

▲ **All paroliro on ETSY purchases are sold "as is" and are FINAL SALE. Your purchase means you have read my shop policies**

▲ Vintage items often have slight imperfections, scratches, or even chips. I honestly point these imperfections out, and I feel they don't negatively impact the beauty of each piece.

▲ Vintage clothing sizes (if there is a size label inside the clothing) do not at all correspond to today's (also variable!) clothing sizes. I take great pains to provide exact *FLAT* side to side measurements, and ask you to compare those *FLAT* measurements to the exact *FLAT* side to side measurements of similar blouses, lingerie, camisoles, slips, nightgowns, leggings, swimsuits, sweaters, jackets, coats, pants, jeans, trousers, dresses and similar clothing items you own that FIT YOU WELL NOW.
