Announcement   Vintage jewelry, vinyl records and more on etsy and ebay.
Hey everybody--if you like it, please buy it if you can! I appreciate the support with favourites and treasuries, but I really *need* to sell this stuff to pay off student loans. I've been in graduate school overseas for the past few years and have brought back some treasures and am sharing them with you but now I need to make some serious bux!

POLICIES:

Vintage items are used and have wear: Any and all vintage items may have storage soil and wear to finish, small nicks and fleabites or scratches to glass or stones, tarnish, patina, verdigris or rust spots, worn maker's marks, slightly loose parts, and so on. Vintage items are not perfect and you must accept this if you wish to bid. Items have not been cleaned unless otherwise noted. I will go out of my way to note significant damage in description but I usually don't bother selling items that are "broken" unless they have some special value as such. All items are used vintage or antique unless otherwise noted.

I can't guarantee metal content unless I had it tested: I usually do not pay to have gold or silver tested when it has hallmarks; items have only been tested for metal content if noted in description. Therefore, I cannot guarantee metal content. I do not guarantee the meaning of any marks on any pieces because I have no way of verifying them especially if they're old as I can't afford to pay for a COA on everything I have to sell; I can only guess based on the marks. You are paying for what I am selling as an object so please pay close attention to photos.

Shipping/handling charges are not negotiable; I have to pay for shipping materials (labels, padded mailers, record mailers, bubble wrap, etc.) and there are other costs involved in shipping which mean that I make no profit on it at all and often lose money.

I insure any and all fragile items--records, glass items, ceramics, etc. So, if the item breaks during shipment, you are required to cooperate with me in filing an insurance claim. However, I pack all items very well so I do require photographic evidence before filing a claim (the insurers require it, too).

I have been selling vintage jewelry and other vintage items online for 10 years and have a great deal of stuff that I never have time to list, so if you are looking for something in particular and think I might have it, ask!
I love vintage stuff. I firmly believe that objects were much more beautiful in the past than they are now in this era of homogenous design and cheap production. Things used to be built to last, and even the ones that weren't still have a shabby beauty that is simply lost in new designs. Remember: vintage items will continue to go up in value as they get rarer and rarer, but cheap, poorly-made reproductions of vintage designs will never be worth anything! x

Accepted payment methods

Payment
California bidders must pay an additional 9.75% sales tax. (Sorry, I know it's high, blame Schwarzenneger!) Please pay in full using paypal for item and shipping/handling, as well as any applicable sales tax, at the time of purchase. I can usually combine shipping on smaller LIKE ITEMS (single items of jewelry, etc.), though with larger items or lots, it may not be possible. I can combine paper crafts (cards, prints) with OTHER PAPER crafts, but I cannot ship those things with jewelry or anything that is bulky and would change the shape of the package, so please do not expect me to honour the combined rates if you purchase, say, a print and a piece of jewelry together, as they will have to be shipped separately. If you buy two prints OR two pieces of jewelry, there should not be any problem.
Shipping
Most lightweight items are shipped via first class mail. I try to have a turnaround of a few days but occasionally some items may be shipped up to a week after payment if I'm particularly busy! Items can only be shipped to the name and address on the paypal account used to pay for the item, no exceptions. All items shipped within the USA are shipped with delivery confirmation tracking; items shipped overseas have some limited tracking through customs. After the item is shipped, it is in the hands of the US Postal Service and no longer my responsibility so any claim made against loss or damage will be between you and USPS. If you wish to purchase faster shipping at a higher cost, insurance, or registered mail if you are overseas, please contact me first to ask if it's possible and to get a quote for current rates (USPS constantly changes their rates--it's dizzying...and annoying!).
I will not lie on customs forms; all items will be shipped as merchandise with full disclosure of item purchase price and type of item, etc. If your country has customs issues with certain kinds of goods, please do not try to buy those kinds of goods from my shop; you are responsible for knowing the customs policies of your country and dealing with any issues that may arise in that area. I will not lie on customs forms and will declare the full rounded value of the item on the form.

If you require gift service (gift box plus gift wrap--specify male or female, child or adult), I may be able to provide this on smaller items for an additional charge; please write me beforehand to inquire.
Refunds and Exchanges
No returns or exchanges; all items are vintage and used and must be sold as is and as described. All items are described to the best of our ability. If the item is damaged or lost during shipment, this is between you and the post office and I accept no liability once it's out of my hands. Any and all chargebacks or attempts to try to get the item for free (claiming it wasn't shipped when it was, claiming the item wasn't as described when all items have photographs provided) will be reported as attempts at fraud and legally pursued, so please don't. :)
Additional policies and FAQs
I love to buy vintage jewelry myself, and I have had many disappointing experiences with ordering it online, but also many great ones where it was like getting a slew of Christmas gifts! I would rather that your experience be like the latter than the former! :)
I describe each item to the best of my ability and my knowledge; if I make a mistake, it is truly out of human error and I accept no liability, as all items are vintage or used and sold as is and as seen. With vintage items, a lot of what is involved in describing what era the piece is from, etc. is guesswork, so you have to read my description and understand that I am not an expert, only someone who has a few books and who cares about jewelry and vintage accessories. If the item is a precious metal, I make it clear in the description whether I've had it tested or I'm just going by the hallmark; if the hallmark is wrong, that is not my responsibility, folks (I don't mark jewelry, I only sell it). If I suspect that an item is not "real," I will not sell it online and it will not be part of my offerings, as I don't want anyone to walk away unhappy and I prefer online transactions to be simple, fast, and pleasant for everyone involved. All items are vintage and used and are not guaranteed to be pristine or perfect, so if you require that, please do not purchase vintage goods! Please ask questions and read descriptions, see pix, etc. before buying as all sales are final, unless otherwise noted. I don't bother to sell "junk" pieces unless it's a box lot of repair parts or if the piece might be a desirable fix-up for someone who likes to tinker with broken jewelry. I try to pick out the nicest and most interesting items from what I purchase to sell online (or to keep for myself!). Please enjoy your item and have fun!
