About

A Child of the 70s and 80s

My vintage shop began when my dad began sending me home with boxes and boxes of my childhood treasures that had been moved to his new house in the 1980s and placed in his attic. I didn't want most of the stuff anymore, but it seemed too valuable to just give away so Smiling Cat Vintage was born.

I've found myself inheriting more items from various family members, more treasures that we didn't want, but that were too good to give away. More inventory for my vintage shop.

Because I've been fortunate to get most of my inventory for free, I haven't spent much time shopping for more. I enjoy visiting vintage and antique shops where I often find myself comparing what they've got with what I've got (and being thankful I'm selling on Etsy where there's a much wider audience for my treasures!)

Where did the name Smiling Cat Vintage come from? I already had an Etsy shop, Smiling Cat Studio (https://www.etsy.com/shop/smilingcatstudio), and so just changed up the logo a bit to make her look a bit more vintage. You know, sepia tones and a pearl necklace...

The Smiling Cat was a real, in-the-fur, kitty named Oops!. I inherited her when she was 12 from my grandmother and great uncle when they down-sized. Oops! was with us for 5 years. During that time, I observed her utter happiness and contentment as she smiled while curled up in my lap, laying in a sunbeam, looking out the window...doing cat things. I named my shop for that happiness and contentment which is my goal in the world too.

I accept payments through PayPal or by credit card through Etsy. Payment must be paid in full and have cleared before item is shipped.

Virginia residents will be charged 5.3% sales tax to keep it legal!
Shipping
I pack all items to minimize the chance of damage during shipment. All items are shipped via USPS within 2 business days of payment. Choose your location and Etsy's Calculated Shipping will estimate postage for you. At checkout, you can choose a shipping upgrade to meet your needs.

Shipping within the US always includes delivery confirmation. Customs forms track delivery for international shipping. Any duties, VAT, taxes or customs fees are the buyer's responsibility.

I've estimated the size and weight of each package to use Etsy's Calculated Shipping. If I have overestimated shipping costs by $2.00 or more, I will refund the overage to you.

Shipping times vary by location, but items should arrive in 7-14 days. If an item has been delayed longer than that, please let me know. No refunds will be made for 6 weeks from mailing date on international orders to be sure that the package hasn't gotten stuck in customs. Once the package has left my hands, I am not responsible for shipping and customs delays.

Please note that if there are customs regulations forbidding me to ship the item purchased to your country, I will contact you and refund your purchase.
