About

Electic Collections from Around the Globe

I am Vandana, proud mother of 3 absolutely brilliant children who are unique and all similar in a way. I live in Mumbai, India, with my son. I am also a U.S. resident and visit my daughter in Chicago twice a year. My life has been pretty colorful, adventurous, and triumphant through major ups and downs, I must say! My Etsy shop started with a lot of nudging, coaxing, and persuading by my daughter who owns three shops on Etsy and is learning more each day while trying to teach me the ropes too.

I have been an air hostess (flight attendant) of India's two most prestigious airlines of my times. During my high flying career of 16 years, I collected various beautiful items from different parts of India and from all over the world. My penchant for exquisite fashion developed as my eyes saw varied beauty not just in India but also abroad.

After leaving flying, my keen sense of fashion inspired me to open a boutique for exclusive custom-made dresses. I worked with authentic artisans who did unique and traditional Indian hand embroidery and machine embroidery on the best quality fabrics and garments. All the dresses were one-of-a-kind pieces.

My Etsy shop is a direct extension of all these beautiful and treasured items for so many years. Most of the items are from 1978 to 1999. Please get in touch with me if there is something that you need or you think that I may have!

Shipping
Shipping usually occurs twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays. For heavy sales or festive seasons it even occurs everyday.

I generally ship via Registered Indian Post which has a tracking number and can be tracked via Etsy. I also ship via DHL, TNT , Fedex etc if such an arrangement is required.

All parcels sent via Indian Registered Post can be tracked here - http://www.indiapost.gov.in/RNetTracking.aspx

I use recycled or up-cycled packaging for shipping whenever possible - just don't be surprised if you're order is packed in an overturned paper !

Although this hardly ever happens, but incase of any import taxes / duties / custom charges- the buyer or the recipient is responsible for the costs incurred.
Refunds and Exchanges
All sales are final and I do not offer refunds.
Store credit may be given depending upon the situation.
If there is a problem please let me know so we can work it out together.

I am not responsible for lost, wrong address, damaged, returned or stolen items in the mail; or those stuck in customs for whatever reason. I will do what I can to help fix the situation if it occurs.

In the event that a parcel is returned to me for reasons such as -unclaimed, or wrong address, or No Authorized Recipient Available etc, in that case, there are two ways to resolve the situation :
a) you may choose to re-pay only the shipping amount where I can ship the parcel one more time either to the same address or another address in the same country. b) You can choose to opt for a store credit equivalent to the price of the product (not including the shipping).
Additional policies and FAQs
For Purchases with regards to Bangles

I would like to share this link which I found on ebay - http://stores.ebay.in/India-Trend/Find-Bangle-Size.html as a guide to measuring bangles.

Every one has a different set of hands in terms of bone structure and flexibility. Sometimes a lot of actual petite women tend to have stiffer or harder bone structure which makes them difficult to fold and wear a bangle. Conversely, a lot of plus size women have hand like cotton - they just fold over and the bangles slide through easily.

You would also benefit from viewing these videos -

Hence it is in your interest that you kindly check the bangle size before making a purchase.

Kindly note that worldwide there is an error of upto 1cms on different length measuring scales. I use branded steel scales for measuring which are bought from USA.

Please Note:
Due to monitor differences, lighting and other factors, actual item colors may be slightly different than how they appear on your screen.

Fabric Washcare Info : Incase of no washcare mentioned , wash Separately preferably. Do not Soak. Do not use harsh detergents
