About

my vintage story

I joined Etsy as Quatrefleurs in 2008 and opened this shop of the same name on April 13, 2009. My very first sales were antique and vintage found photographs from my own collection--I chose to sell them on Etsy mainly because I was loath to part with them and liked the fact that the listing photos remain visible in the sold listings!

I enjoyed selling on Etsy so much that I decided to expand my offerings to include a variety of antique & vintage finds that have caught my eye at estate sales, auctions, flea markets, yard sales, and charity shops.

I love the patina, the workmanship, and the history of old things, and I love sharing my finds with the rest of the world through Etsy :)

Shop policies

Last updated on February 4, 2015
Please note that all the items I sell in my shop are antique or vintage, and therefore are seldom in mint, as-new condition. I strive to provide clear and concise descriptions and to point out anything that could be construed as a flaw. My primary aim in photographing my items is to show their appearance and condition as accurately as possible, even when this results in less aesthetically-appealing photographs.

While some folks purchase antique and vintage items with the intention of making them look new again, others enjoy vintage and antique items in part because they have acquired the patina of years. With this in mind, I clean all items to the extent that I feel is appropriate, and take closeup photos that show clearly any areas of wear, soiling, etc. I do not alter the condition of items after photographing them, so please expect to receive the item in the condition in which it is photographed.

Please note that I sell a plethora of vintage items that have either caught my eye or are from my own collections. I love to learn but am not an expert in any field, so if in doubt please convo me for more information and/or photos. Also, please don't hesitate to convo me with questions about the color of an item, as colors may look different on different monitors, etc.

If you have purchased an item and are not happy with it for any reason, please communicate with me via "convo" (Etsy's message system--I check these messages at least once a day), so that I may have the opportunity to make things right.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
This shop accepts payments via Paypal. I will enable Etsy's direct checkout upon request if a customer wishes to purchase with an Etsy gift card.

I'm not able to take layaway payments; however, I am happy to hold (reserve) items for up to a week. (Sometimes a bit longer if I can, so feel free to ask!)
Shipping
Please note that my small carbon footprint can result in slower shipping times. Most items are sent out within two days, but larger packages sometimes take up to a week to ship. ***Please do not purchase if this will present a problem for you--I want only happy customers :)

I pack carefully and use CLEAN recycled packing materials whenever possible.

I ship worldwide via priority mail international or Express mail international. Please send me a convo for a shipping quote to your location.

Please note that I purchase tracking for all items shipped. Most items also have USPS insurance added and sometimes signature confirmation will be required. Customers are never charged for these additional services. Please ensure that your shipping address is up to date before purchasing, and that the address the package will be shipped to is a secure one.

I mail almost all packages via USPS and very rarely has an item been lost or damaged in shipping. When appropriate, I will assist with contacting postal/law enforcement authorities should any problems occur.
Refunds and Exchanges
I will accept a return for a full refund on an item if I've made a significant error in my description: i.e., a significant flaw that was neither noted in the description nor shown clearly in my photos.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please bear in mind that if you've clicked "Buy" in haste, and afterwards read the entire description and found that the size, color, etc. is not what you wanted, it will be relatively easy for me to cancel the transaction, so please don't hesitate to contact me about this before the item is shipped.
