Since1971's Shop Announcement

🌸 ABOUT ME: In late October of 1971, I inherited the trait to collect.. So here is my lil corner of sanity on Earth, where I'll be able to share my entire warehouse little by little with you.. If you don't see "it", ask me? Never know, I just might... :)

Please check out my other Etsy store below;

🌸 Lil About My Banner: The lady looking at you was my Great aunt Veja, I never knew her she died shortly after this photo was taken in the 1940s.. Several of my family members are shown in this picture.. You can see my Great Grandfather with the black hat & his brother (My great uncle) with the fedora style hat on (he's on the left smiling) :)

🌸 OFFERS: If you love something but the price doesnt love you back.. I am happy to entertain offers I cant say I always accept them but reasonable offers are always seriously considered..

🌸 REGARDING OFFERS: I usually prefer to consider offers after a full 30 days, but have been known to make an exceptions!! :) :)

(And if we're in the midst of negotiating a price, you have 24hrs to yea or nah a counter offer)

🌸 OFFER FOR ITEMS UNDER $25: I DO NOT accept lower offers.. Unless your buying in multiples.. Please keep in mind, we pay Etsy fee's to list, final value fee, & a fee for credit cards on Paypal & or Etsy.. + our time for packing, shipping, & ensuring you have the best experience, We can provide you..

🌸 ABOUT RESERVES (HOLDS): I'm always happy to place an item on RESERVE for up to 7 days, unless other arrangements have been made.. On the 8th day, I will remove the RESERVE notification, then it's first come, first serve..

🌸 OVERSEAS SHIPPING: I am always very happy to ship any item in my store, anywhere around the world, (unless the law does not allow it) Although it might be quite costly..

If your serious about making the purchase, I can get the information for you..

And I CANNOT, WILL NOT mark it a gift or adjust the amount you paid, so please DON'T ASK!!!


🌸 SECRET SALES: I often do secret sales.. I'll randomly mark something down for a few days without notice.. So if you like something & see this happen, take advantage of it.. Before it goes back up.. ;)

🌸 RETURNS: ALL SALES ARE FINAL, PERIOD: Buyers remorse is such a bummer for everyone.. And is NOT a reason for you to return an item.. So please ask questions, need additional photos? No problem.. I try and state all noticeable flaws, part replacements, etc..

🌸 Please keep in mind, I'm selling vintage & with vintage comes general wear & tear.. I DO NOT accept returns, or give refunds.

UNLESS: I have been known to honor some returns without question, "IF I'VE" grossly misrepresented an item.. (*Shipping may not be refunded, depending on the circumstance)

🌸 SHIPPING OPTIONS: I ONLY use the United States Postal Service, (USPS) There is NO exceptions.. Don't ask, as I DO NOT offer any other services..

🌸 SHIPPING OVERAGES: I provide a basic charge on shipping.. If I am over, normally anything more than $3.00, refund the overage.. If I've undercharged you, Normally anything under $3.00, I've been known to absorb.. :(

🌸 USING COUPONS: Can be used at checkout on items over $25.00.. And on anything in my store that DOES NOT have the letters ND in the title ND = No Discount

Regarding shipping... Please, keep in mind that shipping costs include any packaging, tape, bubble wrap, envelopes, boxes, mailers, gas, post office time, packaging time, shipping labels, printer ink, and any other costs associated with shipping... After this, any over charges of $3.00 USD or more will be refunded to your Paypal account upon shipment of your purchase.

🌸 I usually ship within 3-5 days.. Honestly, I'm not the fastest shipper, I have 3 teenage sons at home.. Who I have to drive to clubs, robotics, jobs, band, etc.. & we also own a family plumbing company.. So I'm constantly on the go...

But I do promise (And I don't use the word promise half hearted) to pack your items the way I'd like to receive them myself, WITH GREAT CARE!!!

🌸 I often will recycle packing materials (bubble, peanuts, & boxes) to save on unnecessary waste, so if this is a problem please consider this when making your purchases from me.. However with that said I WILL NOT reuse stuff that should be thrown away!!

🌸 FEEDBACK: I can no longer post feedback .. But I encourage you to post if you are pleased with your purchase & our service.. In fact if you do post & SEND ME A QUICK EMAIL LETTING ME KNOW, I'll give you an forever 10% off coupon to Since1971.. (Let's see how many of you read this far) :)~
