How The Unique Bird Was Hatched

I was a Garage Sale Girly from the start and spent many a happy summer day cruising with my Grandma looking for treasures at garage sales. Always on the hunt for all things Barbie, I loved finding original 1960’s Barbie clothes, not owned by the other girls on the block. My love for Barbie clothes grew into a passion for fashion. As a graduate from Kent State with a degree in Fashion Design, I worked as a clothing designer infusing vintage detail, fabric prints and graphic techniques into the designs that I was creating. After seven years in this industry, I soon discovered that I could combine my design skills with my love for collecting vintage home décor.

This Garage Sale Girly has come full circle and returned to scouring garage sales, flea markets and estate auctions, finding vintage items and repurposing vintage textiles into items that could decorate your space to create a truly unique look.

    The concept for The Unique Bird was hatched from my love of collecting vintage printed fabrics, advertisements, pottery, glassware, kitsch and more. These items appeal to my interests, evoke a memory or just make me smile.

Returns and exchanges
All sales are final unless item is misrepresented or if the item shipped is incorrect.
Note that Antique and Vintage items are rarely in brand new condition, excellent condition does not mean brand new. It means the item you are buying is beautiful, may be used, and looks amazing for its age. I try to note all flaws in the description.
Immediate payment is due after purchase.

If payment is not submitted within 3 days (though it is due immediately after placing the order) the transaction will be canceled.

Accepted Payments:
PayPal (verified/confirmed), due within three(3) business days. Unless other arrangements have been made.
You don't have a Paypal account?
You can still use your CREDIT CARD to pay for your order in two simple steps:
1) Click on the green "pay with Paypal" button at the end of your etsy checkout (you will be redirected to Paypal's site for payment)

Sellers will NEVER see your credit card information when you use Paypal.

**Please Note that if you pay with an E-check on Paypal your purchase will not ship until the E-check clears (usually about 5 business days).

We also accept credit card payment through etsy's Direct Checkout.

I ship using the US Postal Service. I ship as soon as possible after payment has been received. Always within 2-3 days. If you would like insurance or expedited shipping please let me know and I will create a custom listing for any extra shipping charges. Shipping costs are estimated for shipping within the continental United States*. All listed shipping prices are ESTIMATED. I will confirm shipping cost when your purchase ships. If item ships for less than estimated I will refund you if the amount is over $1. Due to the unique sizes and weights of vintage items, shipping prices vary. If you do buy multiple items from my shop I will combine shipping costs. Buy items as listed and I will issue a refund if the combined shipping cost is less than the estimated shipping costs.
*I will ship internationally but you need to convo me if you are interested in an item so I can give you correct international shipping rates.

Additional policies and FAQs
communication is the key to a pleasant transaction so please do not hesitate contacting me with any questions. Photographs can vary in color from monitor to monitor so message me for any clarification. My items come from a smoke and pet free home but I cannot guarantee their previous life. I try to ensure that I have cleaned the items to the best of my ability (without dammaging the surface of the item)before they are shipped to you.
I do not usually give refunds..but I am a reasonable person and willing to discuss and try to work out any problems with you. Please remember that all my items are vintage or previously loved. They will not look brand new.
I do not haggle on prices. I appreciate your interest in my item, but I am sorry, I do not accept offers.
