Vintage Life Studios: Handmade at Home

Welcome to Vintage Life Studio! I started selling on Etsy in September of 2006. I have had several shops offering a variety of vintage and handmade items over the years. Vintage Life Studio is just my latest shop!

I am always brainstorming new ideas and looking for inspiration. I love making things that will have meaning to the person who receives them. I have had some wonderful customers who say the sweetest things and they make me very happy to be here!

Vintage Life Studio is a one woman operation! Everything is made in my home studio by me one at a time. I do all the supply purchasing and production, photography, packing and shipping. I do not use a manufacturer to produce my items.

I am married. I have 3 children and 4 grandchildren and I live in the beautiful state of Oregon!

Thanks for visiting my shop!

Shipping
I ship via USPS First Class Mail within the US or USPS First Class International to everywhere else. Every listing has the option to upgrade to Priority Mail at a higher cost (for U.S. packages only). FREE Delivery Confirmation for all items shipped to destinations within the US as well as many International destinations.This protects you and me!
Refunds and Exchanges
RETURNS/REFUNDS:
Returns are allowed up to 14 days after date of purchase. The item(s) will need to be returned to me unused and in the same condition as shipped before any refund will be issued. Return shipping with a tracking number is the buyers responsibility. You will be refunded in the same way that you paid within 24 hours of receipt of the return.

DAMAGED ITEMS:
I do my very best to package your item carefully and securely. I use very sturdy shipping boxes to protect your jewelry. Broken or damaged items will need to be photographed or returned before any refund will be issued. Shipping may or may not be refunded depending on the reason for the return.

PLEASE: Do not open a case against my shop until you have contacted me first. When you choose the "Report An Issue" button you are reporting my shop to Etsy, not simply getting in contact with me. Please make opening a case against any shop your last resort. It's not the best way to inquire about a delayed package, shipping details, problems with your order, etc. Most of the time your questions can be answered by reading your purchase receipt to see your expected ship by date or your shipping details. Please wait until you've contacted me and I am allowed the chance to help you first. I am always willing to work with you or to help find that missing or delayed package, etc. Thank You.

SHIPPING ADDRESS MISTAKES: I no longer remake or reship items at my cost for incorrect addresses given during check out. Please make sure that you have your current and correct address listed in your Etsy account. If your package comes back to me for this reason then you must pay the additional shipping cost to have it reshipped back to the new and corrected address.
Additional policies and FAQs
All orders will be shipped within 3 to 5 days of purchase. Please let me know if you need something by a certain date BEFORE you purchase and I will do my best to accommodate your needs. It's best if we work out those details BEFORE you purchase so you are not disappointed. Thank You for your understanding.

I ship via USPS First Class Mail within the US or USPS First Class International to everywhere else. FREE Delivery Confirmation for all items shipped to destinations within the US and tracking is now included to many International destinations. This protects you and me!

US SHIPPING: All items will be shipped in a sturdy box and placed inside a padded envelope or poly mailer.

PRIORITY MAIL: Upgrading to Priority Mail does not rush your order or speed up the current production time. It only speeds up your shipping time once your item has been made and is ready to ship. Current production times that are stated in every listing will still apply. I do not do rush orders unless I agree to a specific date prior to purchase. If you need a rush order please contact me BEFORE you purchase.

MISSING SHIPMENTS: I will work with you on a case by case basis for lost/stolen packages. Every missing/stolen package will be reported to the U.S. Postal Inspector for an investigation. You may be required to complete legal forms, insurance claim forms and/or report the loss to your local police station depending on the situation and cost of the items. A U.S. package is not considered lost until at least 30 days have passed since the date of shipment.

ORDER CANCELLATIONS: No order cancellations are accepted on CUSTOM made to order items once they have been started, completed and/or shipped.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING:
I do ship all over the world! You will receive an e-mail from Etsy with your shipping details once your package has shipped. Please expect a delivery time of 1 to 6 weeks. I have no control over international shipping times due to customs delays, etc. I do not guarantee exact arrival times since that is out of my control. See below for more on customs duties, fees, taxes and tariffs to be paid by the buyer.

CUSTOMS FEES INFORMATION:
http://www.dutycalculator.com/new-import-duty-and-tax-calculation (copy and paste into your web browser)
International packages are shipped through the Stamps.com website and you will receive an e-mail from ETSY with your shipping details. International buyers are also responsible for all duties, fees, taxes and tariffs levied on them from their respective countries.
THIS IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT FOR UK BUYERS! The Royal Mail is reportedly being much more vigilant in collecting VAT on purchases made through the mail. You should be prepared for the possibility of paying VAT plus a Royal Mail fee upon receipt. I have no control over the cost that your country may charge you for importing packages. The customs form will be marked merchandise with the total amount of purchase price paid including the shipping cost. I appreciate the many international buyers I've already had! Thank You!

REFUSED/RETURNED INTERNATIONAL PACKAGES: If you refuse to claim your package due to customs fees then I will only refund the original price minus shipping costs once the package has been returned to me and that can take 2 to 3 months. Please be aware of the costs your country may charge you before you purchase.

SHIPPING ADDRESS MISTAKES: I no longer remake or reship items at my cost for incorrect addresses given during check out. This has happened several times in the recent past and all orders were confirmed as delivered. If your package comes back to me for some reason then you must pay the additional shipping cost to have it shipped back to the new and corrected address. Please verify that you have given the correct address when you check out. Thank You!
