Welcome to TheVintageEmpress, I hope you enjoy your visit. I love all things vintage..who doesn't, right? Anytime I see something that reminds me of my childhood I can't help but smile, it takes you back to a time when life was much simpler.
The magazine advertisements that we sell at TheVintageEmpress are all original ads, we do not sell reproduction ads of any kind. With that in mind please be aware that in selling items with age to it there can be a little wear and discoloration, some faint creases, most will have staple holes on one side or another, it's something that when matted and framed will be covered. I will always include a photo of the whole ad so that you can see exactly what you are buying..I also try to keep the ads just how they are at removal from the magazines, I would rather have you the customer trim it as you see fit...we want you to be completely happy with your purchases.
Up until some point in the 1960's ads ran one time, and one time only...that's what makes them so unique. They are a great way to decorate your home or to give as a special gift. All of my ads are ready for you to matte and frame if you desire. They are also fantastic to use in scrap booking or for collages. I will also be selling some ready to hang in repurposed or vintage frames.
If you ever have any questions or would like for me to try to find you something in particular please convo me and I will be happy to see what I can do.
Please enjoy your visit here and come back often.

Returns and exchange details
We strive very hard here at TheVintageEmpress to make sure that you can tell from the descriptions and photos exactly what you are buying. Please do keep in mind that in dealing with vintage advertisements and ephemera there can be creases or folds, staple holes, some discoloration or foxing of the paper..even at times a somewhat musty smell. If you ever have any questions at all about anything we sell please do convo me and I will be more than happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have, but please do be very specific about your concerns, I will gladly take extra photos of any product you have questions about. TheVintageEmpress wants you to be very happy with your purchase, if a return is necessary the proper credit for your purchase will be given after we receive the product back, you will be responsible for return shipping charges.
Please realize that once I carefully package your vintage treasure and send it off in the mail, what happens to it from then on is totally out of my control. Our ads are packed with magazine backing board, in an acid free wrap and in a padded mailer, I am not responsible for the Post Office or your Postal Carrier. I love these vintage ads just as much as you do:)
Here at TheVintageEmpress we accept Pay Pal as well as major credit cards and Etsy Gift Cards. As soon as the transaction is complete we will ship your order within 1 to 3 days.
We will be using USPS for your free shipping. A tracking number can be given to you if needed. This shop owner also works full time and has chickens ;) that being said I usually make post office trips at the beginning and end of each week, if you ever need your order shipped by a certain time please don't hesitate to let me know and I will certainly make arrangements. As always Thank You so much for shopping with us.
