About SecretAgentGirl

Sales 613
On Etsy since 2009

Once upon a time there were two crazy girls who loved vintage clothes...

Inspired by my older sister Debe, I started buying and wearing vintage in my teens. My best friend Terry and I always joked we should open a vintage store - we thrifted together constantly and both had boxes and boxes of vintage, so much that we had to switch out wardrobes with every season. One fateful day in 1988, while musing about opening a store again, we felt magic in the air and we knew it was time to actually do it. The legendary Las Locas was born - a Baltimore vintage store named after the Jaime Hernandez Love and Rockets characters Maggie and Hopey, AKA Las Locas. The store was a happy, lively gathering spot and was referred to as “The Vortex of Love” by locals and friends. We only lasted a year or so, practically giving our stock away and donating a large percent of our profits to local charities. Although it was short-lived and financially unsound, Las Locas filled the city with love, laughter, goodwill, and amazing fashion - and it was instrumental in establishing Normal's Bookstore, a very successful Baltimore institution that's still going strong. Las Locas is still talked about in Baltimore, as are Maggie and Hopey! I’m very proud of taking that leap off the cliff of security - it helped two girls find their true selves while helping others.

I never stopped collecting vintage, often passing it on to friends or to anywhere it was needed, but I missed being a vintage seller. ETSY gave me the opportunity to jump back into the Vintage World full force when I started Secret Agent Girl in 2009.

My dear friend and fashion partner Terry/Maggie passed away in 2011, so those vintage memories are even more tender to me now. I’m so happy to be back in the world of vintage vending, resurrecting my alter-ego Hopey and creating new memories! Your support of Secret Agent Girl enables me to do the thing I love and keeps Maggie's laughter present throughout my day. Thank you!

Always remember - a good clash is better than a bad match!

Welcome to Secret Agent Girl. Life should be a string of adventures - and why not look good while experiencing those adventures?

My mission is to provide vintage to those eco-conscious souls striving to step softly on the earth through the act of recycling and upcycling. I also hope to pass on fashion and textile knowledge I've learned and collected throughout my 30+ years the vintage and Museum worlds. And, I try to do all this with a sense of humor. I've had fun finding, wearing, using, and selling these beautiful things and hope that you enjoy looking and finding the right thing for you!

Check out the shop sections - there's even one for super-cheap deals on clothes that have seen better days but still vie for attention. And if you're a returning buyer, please take advantage of the RETURNBUYERSDISCOUNT coupon code which will give you 20% off at checkout as a thank you for coming back to Secret Agent Girl. **You must enter the coupon at checkout - I cannot activate it retroactively unfortunately.

I launder all garments that I think will withstand cleaning - wool, suede, leather, silk, delicates and NOS (new old stock) garments are the exception and are not cleaned.

Please read all my shop policy sections which contain tons of information that may affect your purchase.

Whatever's on your agenda for today - have fun doing it!

Thanks for visiting, Secret Agent Girl

Accepted payment methods

Paypal Visa Mastercard Discover Apple Pay Klarna Giftcard
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
Please read the Vintage Clothing Condition Chart in the "Additional Information" section to understand my rating for Secret Agent Girl clothing. Unless noted otherwise, items have been previously owned and may show signs of wear and tear due to years of use. That's simply the world of vintage and much loved clothing that keeps weaving its way to the next loving wearer. That said, such issues do not constitute a reason for refund. Neither do clothes that do not fit, as measurements are included in all listings. Please compare with similar garment to insure fit before purchasing. Clothing may be clipped to fit model. While I make every attempt to describe items as openly and accurately as possible, if I do miss any major flaw, please convo/email me within 24 hours of receiving package so that we can figure out the best solution. Otherwise, I will accept returns only if the item is received grossly different than listed.
thanks!
Payment
Payment must be made within 3 days of purchase.

I accept:

Direct Checkout
PayPal/credit and debit
Money orders and checks (mailed swiftly)
Western Union transfers and cash (use the "other" category)
Square (use the "other" category)

Don't forget that you can use Paypal to pay with your credit card/debit card, even if you don't have a Paypal account! If you're unable to make payment within 3 days, please contact me and we can work something out.

Cancellation policy: If I have not begun the process of packing and shipping your order, I will honor your request. Cancellations will not be accepted if the process has been started due to money and time issues.

Rhode Island purchases unfortunately include a 7% sales tax.
Shipping
All effort is made for orders to be shipped within 48 hours of receiving cleared payment, not including weekends, holidays and announced vacations/goings out of town. I recycle EVERYTHING in my life, including packing materials. If you happen to receive recycled packaging, please understand that it is a reflection of my concern for the planet, not a lack of concern for your purchase. I will always make sure that items are packed safely (I was a Museum Registrar for years and take packing seriously).

Quoted figures are for shipping and handling, not necessarily simply the USPS ship rate. I ship via USPS First Class Mail and First Class Mail International (unless requested otherwise) to any country in the world. ***If you would like to add insurance or any other additional shipping service, please convo me before purchase so that I can adjust the shipping charge for you.***

I'm happy to combine shipping. Please contact me for an exact amount prior to purchase if the "additional item" section doesn't address the issue sufficiently.

In the case of loss or damage during shipping, I will supply postage receipt upon request but buyer must handle the claim.

I am in no way responsible for any international delivery times, customs delays or duty taxes incurred.

If a package is unclaimed by the buyer or returned to me because of an incorrect address due to a mistake by the buyer, buyer must repay the shipping and handling fees so that the items may be reprocessed and shipped again. Obviously, if I've screwed up, I'll take care of that.

If you have special shipping needs, please contact me.

Privacy
This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

1. Personal information I Collect

To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order, for example), if you contact me directly.

2. Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest toimprove my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

3. Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

4. Data Retention

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.

5. Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

6. Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
