Beautiful dress, nice quality, great vibrant colors. A bit tight on me on top, but I'm dieting so hopefully it will fit soon. I hope so because I love it.

About

Enjoy my discoveries

I have always appreciated vintage things. My parents passed along their love of antiques to me. I’m a huge fan of old movies and that is where much of my vintage clothing enthusiasm originates. I grew up in the 60s and 70s and was influenced by mod design and still really love this look. In my everyday life I’m a librarian. I live with my husband in our 100+ year old home in northern Illinois. My hobbies are reading, watching movies, walking, gardening, and drinking coffee.

Vintage clothing from Pastfindz is from the 50s-80s. You won’t find many fancy items, but mostly everyday clothes from the past, with flair. I do the work for you by finding interesting vintage pieces and selling them in ready-to-wear condition. Items are cleaned (washed or dry cleaned or light cleaning of items such as purses). I do minor mending if needed. Each item is measured carefully and described in detail. Sold items are carefully packaged and promptly shipped.

Thank you for visiting Pastfindz. I offer vintage clothing and accessories, often made of better quality materials than those available today. One thing that I love about vintage clothing is the self expression that comes from dressing in something that no one else is likely to be wearing.

All items sold are previously owned and as such are not in perfect, brand-new condition. I do my best to describe items accurately. Prices have been set to take into account any imperfections found.

Please review measurements carefully to make sure items will fit. Sizes for many vintage items are not the same as those used today. Compare the measurements provided with clothing items you own that fit well.

Upon request items can be marked "reserved" for up to 7 days (serious buyers only please).

If you have questions, please contact me. I welcome your inquiries.

Payment
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Pastfindz never receives your credit card information directly.

Illinois residents will be charged for sales tax.
Shipping
Items are carefully packed and sent out promptly (within 2 BUSINESS DAYS).

U.S. postage costs are set based on what it would cost to mail something to the coasts (highest price for me). I refund the difference if actual shipping costs are at least $1.00 less than what was paid.

If you would like to upgrade your shipping to a faster service, please contact me for a price quote.

Postage for most U.S. orders includes delivery confirmation and you will be given this number when the item has shipped. If there is a problem with receiving your order, please contact me.

I use some recycled boxes/envelopes in good condition for mailing to be environmentally friendly.

INTERNATIONAL SALES: Items are available for shipping to select international locations. I am no longer shipping to European Union countries. For customers in non-EU countries, if you would like your country to be added to my shipping locations for an individual item, please contact me.

International customers are responsible for paying any customs taxes or fees, VAT, tariffs, duties, etc. set by your home country. These are not included in your purchase price. Also, merchandise purchased and mailed internationally cannot be marked as a gift on customs forms.

Some larger items may not be available for international sale. Any boxed item that exceeds 36 inches for each dimension is beyond the limit for 1st Class International shipping, and other postal options are prohibitively expensive. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Refunds and Exchanges
If an item was significantly misrepresented, I will refund the purchase cost and shipping fees upon return of the item. Otherwise, if a customer wants to return an item, the original item cost will be refunded upon return, but the customer will be responsible for the shipping costs (both to send and return). Items should be returned in their original condition. Contact me within 14 days of receiving your order to arrange a return.
Additional policies and FAQs
Vintage clothing care note: It is recommended that you wash vintage clothing in cold water on a gentle machine setting or hand wash it. Then, air dry items (on a hanger in the shower or laid flat on a towel, or on a drying rack). Please avoid using the clothes dryer to keep your vintage clothing looking its best. Some items should be dry cleaned.

I adhere to Etsy privacy guidelines. I will only contact you to communicate about & fulfill your order.
