I try to come up with creative ways to repurpose and reclaim items...outside of the general "reduce, reuse, recycle" philosophy. I collect a great deal of items, but I believe it's best to put them in plain view. Really...what's the point of having something if you can't look at it daily (outside of sentimental items that really DO need to be placed lovingly out of the way to protect them).

My website www.theretrometro.com is a work in progress. Please feel free to visit and leave feedback.

Payment
Please consider the following information.
All items will be shipped within 2 business days after notification of secured payments via online. Checks must be received within 7 days of purchase. I will relist the product immediately once this time is up.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

June 4, 2012 Update: If you are paying via online and payment is not secure within three calendar days-aka 72 hours, unless this is an "invoiced" item, as would be stated in listing (because these services work 24/7/365), it will be immediately relisted.

Using a Credit Card Without a Paypal account
----------------------------------------------------------

Follow these instructions:

http://www.etsy.com/storque/section/howTos/article/how-to-pay-with-a-credit-card-and-create-a-paypal-account/746/

Paypal will allow a person to do this a limited number of times before they expect you to sign up for a paypal account.

I am more than happy to combine shipping as well as ship internationally, although it is not listed in any of my shipping or payment profiles. Just convo me for more information and an accurate shipping quote.
Shipping
I am more than happy to combine shipping as well as ship internationally, although it may not be listed in any of my shipping or payment profiles. Just convo me for more information and an accurate shipping quote.

ON MOST ITEMS:
Delivery confirmation is available for an additional charge.
Insurance is optional and especially recommended on purchases over $50 (unless it states otherwise in the description where it might be inclusive). Cost of insurance and any additional shipping requests will be determined via visit to the post office.

Be sure you keep your PayPal address up to date. That is the address I will be using to ship items when you use PayPal or your credit card. PayPal only backs things up shipped to the address listed on PayPal. Items paid by check will obviously use the etsy address once the check has cleared. Be sure all listings are current.

In the event you wish the item's to be shipped elsewhere, an additional charge will be added to track shipping and/or signature confirmation, depending on the value of the item.
Refunds and Exchanges
All vintage items listed are on an as is basis. This includes patterns and kitschy items. I will note questionable spots and take pics of those spots I'm not sure about...Especially if I can't tell if it's part of the design or actually a flaw. I try to clean the items myself, but if an item is iffy, or if I don't have experience in that type of material, and if I don't believe that I can properly do it, I'll be sure to list that the cleaning responsibility will be up to you.

Please be sure to consider the measurements listed. Sizing differs depending on the period. Marilyn Monroe's "legendary" size 14 was much smaller than folks realize. Just take a peek at the backs of the patterns from that era. If you have ANY questions, be sure to ask. Rather safe than sorry.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As far as regularly handmade items are concerned, if you aren't satisfied, please return the item for a full refund within 3 business days. Items must be in the same condition as received for a full refund.

FEEDBACK:
I am happy to participate in feedback. Most of the time, I leave feedback AFTER you have left feedback. This way, I know our transaction is completed and that you are satisfied. Otherwise, please email me to let me know what it is that you are dissatisfied with. It is also helpful if you message me with things that were helpful (or not) in the purchasing process: links, suggestions, etc. I expect excellent customer service myself, therefore I should give excellent customer service.

Please feel free to convo me with specific requests. If I have the materiels, it's always up for consideration. If I don't think I can do it, I'll let you know within 24 hours.

Additionally, when you make a purchase, be sure to check your convo's (and email listed for your PayPal) daily. If there is a mistake somewhere in the online payment process you will be notified of it. If you neglect to check your messages, you will miss the deadline. See Payment Policies.
