Welcome to Vintage Purse Snatcher!

***A note about Etsy calculated shipping - Please send me a private message if you feel the Etsy calculated shipping is overestimating your shipping costs. I'm happy to calculate it for you and adjust the shipping in the listing so you're paying an accurate shipping total. I will also refund any shipping overestimate of $2.00 USD or more.***

I sell vintage handbags, vintage rhinestone jewelry, and vintage accessories, lovingly collected over a number of years. Originally, this inventory was housed in my store on Magazine Street in New Orleans, which opened five months prior to Katrina devastating the city. I was able to keep the store open for two years following Katrina through sheer will and savings, but was forced to close because the economy had not come back by that time.

After many years of trying to figure out what to do with the inventory, I finally decided on opening an Etsy shop.

I have about 200 more (that is, in addition to what has already been listed) vintage handbags and over 1,000 pieces of jewelry I will be posting in the next few months.

Please send me a private message if you are looking for a particular color, style, or material. I am more than happy to send pictures and information about handbags I have not yet listed.

I hope you all enjoy these pieces as much as I have!

Policies:

Please send me a private message if you would like clarification pictures, or if there are any questions I can answer for you that were not addressed in the listing.

I am happy to place items on reserve for SERIOUS buyers. I will keep the item on reserve for 14 days, but if I have not received payment by the end of the 14th day, I will re-list the item on the morning of the 15th day.

Should you have an issue with merchandise received, please send me a private message. I am sure we can come to a mutually agreeable solution.

Shipping:

I wrap your purchase really well simply because these are vintage items and I want to make sure they get there as they were listed, so unfortunately, I have to charge a handling fee. This is to cover the cost of the box, bubble wrap, tissue paper, jewelry box (if necessary), time required to package item, and gasoline to/from post office. If shipping is overpaid by $2.00 or more, that will be refunded to the buyer after shipment.

Handling fees are as follows:

Jewelry/Accessories: $1.75

Handbags: $2.25

Travel cases: $5.00 (primarily cost of box)

If more than one item is purchased, the difference in what was charged by Etsy for shipping and actual shipping, if more than $2.00, will be refunded after shipment.

Will ship anywhere!

All purchases are shipped USPS Priority Mail within 1 - 3 U.S. business days after payment processing, unless buyer prefers Media Mail.

All shipping weights are estimated, so if there are overages paid on shipping totaling $2.00 or more, they WILL be refunded after shipment of item.

Shipments are sent to the address on your order.

Please write a "Note to Seller" if you would like your purchase shipped elsewhere and make sure to include shipping address.


Refunds and Exchanges

Purchases are non-refundable.

I do not refund for mistakes of USPS or for theft after delivery. The buyer is responsible for providing a secure delivery environment for receiving items purchased online. I will not issue a refund for items that have been marked "Delivered" by USPS, but were not received by the buyer. Once I drop the item at the post office, I am no longer responsible for it reaching its final destination. I will gladly do everything I can to help track down the package, but I will not issue a refund if it cannot be found. Please purchase insurance for this very reason.

Should a package go missing, the buyer is responsible for filing the proper claim with USPS and for obtaining a police report. It is the buyer's responsibility to file for reimbursement from the USPS, not the seller's. I will do everything I can to help, but I cannot be responsible for what happens to a package after I have shipped it. Period.

Vintage goods are sold "as is." Please carefully consider the listing photos and descriptions (if I see a flaw or blemish, it is in the description) prior to purchasing. You are welcome to private message me with any questions about condition, size, color, etc.

Additional Policies:

I do not normally do refunds or exchanges on vintage items, but am willing to make an exception if the listing was incorrect, or if vintage eyeglasses do not flatter the buyer. However, please message me if you believe there are extenuating circumstances.

All items are sold as-is.

I do my best to give the most accurate description based on my research, but I am not an expert. Items have NOT been officially appraised, certified or authenticated, unless so stated in the listing information.

Frequently asked questions

What if the eyeglasses I purchase don't look good on me?

I will accept returns on vintage eyeglasses for this reason. However, if there are extenuating circumstances with anything you purchase from Lessons In Vintage, please contact me and I will try to work with you.
