Last updated on August 14, 2018
Vintage Cat Tastrophe was inspired by the antics of our family cats; Simon, Odin, Bogie, Isaac & Finn. They love to help us take pictures, measure, paint, fold, package and everything else you can think of. Sometimes you can spot them in the background of our listing pictures...or right in the way.

We try to keep their luxurious cat fur off items but it is bound to happen...a stray hair will make it's way into the package or on the hem of an item. If you are very allergic to cats please use caution.

Please keep in mind that we are crazy cat people.

I am a recycler. After all, that is what a vintage seller does. I re-use boxes where applicable and I often use giftwrap as package filling.

Additional policies and FAQs
We sell vintage items. This means there may be imperfections such as dents, scratches, stains, yellowing, moth holes etc. We look over every item thoroughly and will include anything we may find that may be worthy of mention.

Most "vintage" shoppers understand that imperfections are part of the charm of these previously owned items. (We don't mind wearing a Tshirt with a hole)

When we price out items, especially clothing, we use a complex grading system based on, maker, material, age, color, subject, rarity, desirability etc. We always try to price items competitively and fairly.

Our main objective is building positive relationships with customers. We want to sell our treasures to you again and again. It's the hunt for more treasure that gives us enjoyment.

If you are searching for a specific item, let us know. We will add it to our radar when we search out new inventory.
