These earrings replaced a vintage pair I owned since the 1980's and recently lost. They were in pristine condition. Seller shipped them quickly and provided prompt personal follow-up once delivered.

Purchased on 9/3. Item had not shipped by 9/9. Upon query was told seller waiting for funds to clear. Funds had cleared on 9/7 (by seller's own admission). Opened dispute through Paypal. Seller cancelled my order, terming my request for firm shipping date as "rude."

Unfortunately, this buyer did not understand that American Express purchases are not made through PayPal on Etsy, they are processed through Direct Payment, a slower process than PayPal. With the Labor Day weekend, processing was slower than normal. I was explicit about this, about the fact that I received no deposit notice from my bank, and about all dates involved. I was prepared to ship on the 10th after I returned home from work, but because the buyer threatened me, I rescinded the sale. I want my grandmother's possessions to be purchased by kind and respectful people. As a seller, discretion is my right. All buyers should familiarize themselves with the various payment methods and use logic: no sensible seller will ship before receiving notice of payment. This buyer is contentious. Deal accordingly.

About

Schwa Vintage & Destash

I started this shop to have some fun selling my grandmothers' wacky choices in jewelry. I appreciate; I don't always wear. It's grown up a bit since then, but I'm still selling their stuff. Both sides of the family had a lot of stuff. I have added cabochons and beads in my Supplies section, Asian knicknacks and soon, collectibles and comics.

I'm now in the slow process of moving pieces from Iníon Dé Designs, my handmade jewelry shop, to Schwa. They are comprised of antique and vintage beads, charms and chandelier crystals. I hope this will give the shop added allure!

    I do way too much stuff. I have two shops on Etsy at the moment, selling my own photography in addition to vintage and destash. Please, I'm buried in STUFF! Help a girl out and buy something.

Payment
All pieces include shipping and handling. I take PayPal, Direct Payment and Etsy Gift Cards. INSURANCE IS BOTH RECOMMENDED AND EXTRA.
Shipping
I use USPS First-Class Mail or Priority Mail in the US and internationally.

I will send you a tracking number so that, should there be a problem, you can research missing items yourself, and I will help all I can with the shipper should there be a problem. Remember that your purchase is your responsibility. That's why they made insurance.

> Find USPS rates and services at https://postcalc.usps.com/default.aspx

I package all items VERY securely and have had only one incident with item breakage. Nevertheless, BEFORE YOU PAY, shop smart: TELL ME TO INSURE YOUR PURCHASE! If your shipment is lost of broken by the post office, I will NOT give credit or like-kind goods. Your purchase is your responsibility. You can insure by sending me a convo after you buy but before you pay, requesting USPS insurance. I'll bill you the difference, then ship.
Refunds and Exchanges
I do not refund purchases, but I do provide exchanges or store credit unless the reason stems from USPS fault. That's what insurance is for.
Additional policies and FAQs
I like to work with clients on custom orders, and to negotiate prices and to create groupings of items at a discount for wedding parties and other groups or special occasions. If you would like specific pieces for a special occasion, a new line for your consignment shop, or any other reason, please convo me. I'm up for the challenge!!
