Vintage & Literary Inspired Living

A love of vintage has enriched my life, creating a magical narrative through the most fulfilling and even sullen of times. A vintage piece or ensemble brings the story you assign to it, brightening every moment along the way!

I'm proud to be an active participant in the DIY and recycled fashion movement. Why save up for that designer piece you have been coveting when timeless, affordable vintage was the author in the first place??

Book clutch design has been a natural marriage of my vintage fashion sense and love of designer trends, as I pair well read books with the evening bags of well dressed women from the past! The narrative of this fashion must have goes a step further, revealing the wearer's literary leanings and artistic self-expression.

Returns and exchanges
I will provide a refund or exchange for any discrepancy in the description provided, such as damage not described or inaccurate measurements.

I am serious about providing quality service and want to make each customer happy; please contact me regarding any concerns with your purchase.

I sell vintage to vintage lovers! Please be aware that items such as shoes may need repair and upkeep; many of my items are 50 to 70 years old, so there will be instances in which aging of materials such as shoe adhesion and thread deterioration will necessitate repair.

I need to hear back from the buyer within 2 weeks of receiving your order to fulfill a qualifying return due to an inaccurate description.

Returns for reasons other than inaccurate description are accepted if the buyer pays shipping costs both ways, and the item is in its original condition.
Viva Las Vixens Literary Book Clutches accepts PayPal and Etsy Direct Checkout. Both PayPal and Etsy process your credit card payment through their secure checkout services; I do not see your credit card number or other account information.

If the shop and customer agree to cancel an order, a refund will be processed in 10 business days. For custom orders, a partial refund may be returned, with labor and unrecoverable materials deducted from the transaction amount.
U.S. buyers pay shipping on their first item and then receive free shipping on second and additional items combined in one order that ships together. International buyers pay discounted shipping rates on additional items that ship together. The item with the highest shipping fee is assessed as the first item at checkout.

I will gladly add signature confirmation to shipping upon request.

***International Buyers: USPS First Class and Priority methods do not offer tracking and insurance services. In order to secure your shipment with tracking and insurance, you will need to pay for USPS Express, or request another shipper such as UPS or FedEx who ship with guaranteed delivery. These services start around $40 for USPS Express, and $70 for UPS or FedEx. Please let me know if you would like me to add shipping fees for your preferred upgraded method of delivery.

Custom fees may apply and rates vary by country; this is a tax imposed by your government, and I am in no way affiliated with the collection of this fee.

I am not responsible for lost packages. Please inquire about the best shipping method to meet your particular needs and circumstances. While I have experienced an excellent record with USPS deliveries, you may require additional features such as signature confirmation or tracking if delivery problems (e.g. theft of delivered packages) are known to occur in your area.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please note that my book clutches are materially composed using the original architectural structure I have created. Purchases are for personal use and not templates for duplication of my unique design method.

I do enter agreements for resell with other retailers; please do contact me if you would like more information on arranging an agreement.
