Announcement   Fairytale shopping at it's finest... behold these handmade and vintage treasures Vertiline tucked away in the forest of her imagination.

"Hers is a lifetime of love...
and in it fell a collection of treasures,
a box of curiosities,
bundled up in attics, wardrobes and other
such secret places.
These trinkets were her memories.
Far she has travelled, and wide
in so many glorious directions
with her dark and dreaming heart.
Adventure and lovers were the air she breathed
and the wine she drank.
Such a life of longing and
feeling
cannot be swept aside."

Since it's early days for Vertiline, I just wanted to let you know that I have another etsy account http://thekorubranch.etsy.com where I have 300+ positive feedback! :)

About

Fairytale shopping at its finest...

Vertiline is a wondrous lady and has lived a lifetime full of adventure. Everything for sale in her namesake was 'found' whilst rummaging through her attic - they are the many objects that illustrate a thousand stories that she's danced through.

Vertiline In Love was the dreamchild of Claira and Emily, thought up whilst they whiled away afternoons in Edinburgh coffee shops. Claira then skipped off to Sheffield after her beloved, and was given leave to keep Vertiline going on her own, as Emily had other exciting projects on the go.

Vertiline now has a bricks & mortar micro-boutique in Sheffield, where we sell a wide range of beautiful handmade things. Our pieces are all handmade by a some of the UK’s finest independent designer-makers. You’ll find jewels, attire, accessories, paper goods and lots of other lovely treasures in our collection.

Everything in the Etsy shop is the handiwork of Claira, who loves working with vintage materials and playing about with printing processes.

* WHY HELLO THERE *

I know there's a lot to read on this page - but it'll probably answer any questions you have prior to purchase, so do please take a gander at different sections below!


* VERTILINE IN LOVE *

Hers is a lifetime of love...
and in it fell a collection of treasures,
a box of curiosities,
bundled up in attics, wardrobes and other
such secret places.
These trinkets were her memories.
Far she has travelled, and wide
in so many glorious directions
with her dark and dreaming heart.
Adventure and lovers were the air she breathed
and the wine she drank.
Such a life of longing and
feeling
cannot be swept aside.


* ABOUT ME *

Me: excessive tea drinker (the more flowery the better), would-be knitter, high-heels-on-all-days wearer, herb-growing, Kate Bush lover.

I love all things vintage and fairytale, so with the help of my likewise-enthralled friend Emily (http://lostintheforest.etsy.com) we devised a fairytale world of a vintage lady named Vertiline, and decided to create a shop where all the items on offer would be caught up in her adventuresome tales (you may have noticed all the story snippets in the listings). With me moving down to Sheffield from Edinburgh (boy-related!), life had taken me and Emily in different directions; Emily still works in Edinburgh plotting and planning Magpie Markets (fabulous indie craft fairs), and I took up the Vertiline mantle.

I love vintage fabric, and lace (ohmygosh), and embroidery, lots of which you will soon see scattered around the shop. I also love hunting for beautiful vintage clothes, it's so much fun being their custodian for a while and then sending them off to new lives, to be loved and cherished.

Currently I sell my own items on Etsy, but I'm also in the process of setting up an online shop via http://www.vertilineinlove.com where I will be selling a myriad of lovely stuff from other wonderful handcrafters. Please visit and sign up for the mailing list to hear when the new shop opens, and other exclusive discounts!


* VINTAGE CONDITION CHART*

Mint: it looks brand spanking new!
Excellent: previously worn or used with no notable flaws
Good: previously worn with minor noted flaws, though still wearable
Fair: numerous noted flaws, possibly wearable with care or after repair
Poor: damaged beyond repair, could be fashioned into new item

! Please keep in mind that photographs may vary slightly from real-life colours.

Note: I wash items using Ecover (ecover.com), a natural plant-based laundry powder for sensitive skin.


* TAKING CARE OF VINTAGE ITEMS *

Vintage items are delicate and should be handled with care. Please handwash scarves and garments of clothing in cold to lukewarm water with a soap/detergent designed for delicates. For bigger garments (coats/dresses), consult a professional clothes cleaner. Spot clean bags with a damp cloth.

Thank you, kittens! x Claira

UK Buyers - I accept postal orders, please contact me first.
Shipping
Please note that I try and reuse packaging materials, boxes and envelopes where possible, not only for eco-friendly reasons, but to keep shipping costs as low as possible for you.

I usually manage to post items within 24 hours on week days, I know how deeply keen you are to get your stuff so don't fret - I'll scamper down to the post office as soon as I possible can. Please do allow a few of days leeway though - I don't always manage to catch the post office half-days on Wednesdays and Saturdays. I will let you know as soon as your item has shipped.

UK Buyers - please allow up to five days for your item to arrive. The Royal Mail are usually really good around my way, but sometimes things can get a little delayed along the way.

Refunds and Exchanges
Refunds and Exchanges - please contact me!

If there is any sort of problem or issue with your purchase, please contact me immediately by either sending me a convo or by emailing vertilineinlove at gmail.com.

Please make sure you read the entire item listing information, especially for garment measurements. I try to measure items as accurately as possible, but often items such as dresses can be a little hard to get exactly right, so do allow for a little bit of wriggle room. If there's a problem, or if you think I've described something horribly, then please contact me and we can try to sort it out. Please remember that all items are vintage and have previously been used, so some amount of wear is to be expected.

If something does need to be returned after we've exhausted the first option, then make sure you've emailed me so I know to expect it and please also keep proof of postage. Returns are sent at your own expense. I will refund you the item price in full.

Refunds will be given upon receipt of the item back to me, but the buyer will need to pay shipping costs at their own expense.

If an item has been damaged in the post, please email me (with pictures if possible) as soon as you can so I can file a report with the post office.

Unfortunately refunds cannot be given on earrings.
