My jeweler friend is gonna flip when she sees this pretty! Truly exquisite. My fragile order arrived quickly and was very carefully packaged. Great customer service from the kind and funny Cindy.

Cindy has the most exquisite pendants in her shop. This one looks brand new, and would be gorgeous repurposed into a unique necklace. Highest quality.

Exquisite vintage beads that would look wonderful repurposed into earrings. They are in excellent condition, and will go to another jeweler friend.

Simply gorgeous and full of bling. Alas, I parted with this baby too and gifted to someone who can repurpose into a OOAK necklace or bracelet.

Many of you may already be familiar with me...I've been buying, collecting and selling beads for a while now and my love for vintage beads shows no sign of slowing down! With a strong background in customer service, I definitely aim to make (& keep!) my customers happy. I know you have a lot of choices when it comes to making your vintage bead purchases, so I try to make our photos as clear (and enticing!) as possible and our descriptions informative. Oh...and don't forget FUN! Buying vintage beads should *always* be FUN!

Payment
I gladly accept PayPal. I also accept personal checks and money orders. Personal checks may delay shipment until your check has cleared our bank. Payment is due and appreciated within 3 days of sale unless prior arrangements have been made. After that the sale will be cancelled.
Shipping
DOMESTIC SHIPPING

I generally ship by USPS First Class Mail. All domestic packages include delivery confirmation. Insurance is extra ($1.70 for up to $50.00) and recommended as seller is not liable for damage or missing items due to shipping. In some cases (ie heavier packages), shipping may be upgraded to USPS Priority Mail. Due to my full-time job, orders are shipped within 3-5 business days. In the event that you need your beads super-quick, please let me know and I'll do everything I can to help you.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING

International orders are only shipped once per week, as it requires a trip to the post office and filling out the requisite customs form. Once an international parcel leaves my hands, it could still take 30 days or more to arrive at your doorstep. If you need your items quickly, please ask about expedited shipping.

Tracking is available only on the higher priced shipping methods such as International Priority (except small flat rate) and Express Mail. Your customs form will describe the package contents as "craft supplies." This is a fair and honest description that seems to work well in all countries. Please do not ask me to misrepresent the value or label your parcel as a gift.

Please consider insuring your international parcel for a small additional charge. On larger orders, I will gladly split the cost with you. Though rare, parcels do occasionally get lost and many vintage items cannot be replaced. If you choose not to insure your parcel, I will not be held liable for lost or missing items. I will gladly provide proof of shipment upon request.

Due to many lost packages, I no longer ship to Italy.
Refunds and Exchanges
We try very hard to give you an accurate description of everything you find on our site. All of our beads are in uncirculated condition, generally referred to as "New, Old Stock". Vintage crystals are often packaged in hanks or loose (in packages, by the gross). In all cases, vintage beads and crystals may have tiny flaws. They don't take away from the beads but this goes along with purchasing vintage beads anywhere. They will not be considered defective. However, we do allow returns if an item is significantly not as described or defective. All items returned must be received in their original condition, within 7 days. We do not credit for shipping charges either way, unless the return was due to an error on our part. Returns received without prior authorization may be assessed a 20% restocking fee.

Please keep in mind that computer monitor settings vary so the color of the item(s) you receive may not exactly match your monitor settings. We pride ourselves on offering multiple photographs of each item, to give you a more accurate idea of the color of the item you are purchasing. With this said, we cannot accept returns if, for instance, an item appears “yellow” on your screen and is actually golden topaz when you receive it.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you need more of an item than we have listed, please convo me. Many times I do have more stock available. However, the vintage bead listing you love today may not be here tomorrow and with many vintage items, once it's gone, it's gone.
