Announcement   Now accepting Etsy cards, credit cards via Etsy Direct Payment, the works! I DO NOT SHIP UNTIL I RECEIVE CONFIRMED PAYMENT.

PLEASE NOTE: THE DIRECT PAYMENT METHOD (using a credit card rather than a PayPal account) IS SLOWER THAN PAYPAL AND IS SUBJECT TO WEEKENDS AND BANK HOLIDAYS. Etsy makes these deposits to my regular bank account and it takes 3-5 days for them to be completed, not including weekends and holidays. PAYPAL IS NOT INVOLVED IN DIRECT PAYMENT TRANSACTIONS. As I have done with other customers, I will keep you posted about clearance and shipping dates.

Please keep this payment information in mind as you buy if you are in a hurry to receive an order.

Cabochons! Rhinestone Jewelry! Czechoslovakian chandelier crystals! It's a bonanza, friends.

Shipping to the US & Canada with USPS Domestic or Int'l 1st Class. TELL ME about your delivery deadline in your order. I'll do my very best to accommodate you.

1. If you are from outside the United States, convo me first and I'll check the shipping. The US Postal Service is making fewer inexpensive options available. This may influence your buying decisions.

2. READ MY POLICIES BEFORE ORDERING!!

VINTAGE JEWELRY: It's almost ALWAYS from family.

VINTAGE ELEMENTS: These are my creations using vintage beads or findings.

SUPPLIES: Some vintage, some not, they come from a variety of sources.

Please provide feedback after you receive your order. I like to stay on top of client needs!

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 I was prepared to ship on the 10th after I returned home from work, but because the buyer threatened me, I rescinded the sale.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, USPS Parcel Post or Priority Mail Flat Rate, depending upon the item's size and weight. If you need your item by a certain date, please indicate this in the "Comments" section of your purchase screen. If you want Priority or Next-Day USPS delivery, do not pay for your order. Tell me the method you want via convo. I will reserve your purchase, revise the shipping cost, and then you can pay as normal.

I will keep you posted should there be a delay; I will post notice at my shop if there is a store-wide delay due to forces majeur.

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 http://pe.usps.com
> Find USPS Flat Rates at https://www.usps.com/business/priority-mail-flat-rate-for-business.htm
> Learn about USPS insurance at http://www.ehow.com/how_6564568_calculate-usps-insurance.html

All items are priced by their own weight or size.

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
NONE. If the delivery service makes an error, that's on them. If you are concerned about your purchase's delivery, YOU MUST ASK FOR UPS OR USPS INSURANCE WITH YOUR ORDER. I am not responsible for the USPS's or UPS's mistakes in shipping.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am an avid trader, but I only do so by processing the item barter as I would a sale, through Etsy, so that they can earn their percentage of the exchange. After all, they're giving me the bandwidth! Convo me if you're also a vendor and you're interested in a barter.

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!!
