About

Wowed by jewelry & fashion from times past...

My venture into selling online started in the late 2000's, however my love for vintage items began back in the 1980's as a teenager.

Originally from Los Angeles, I would frequent the vintage expos at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, scour Aardvarks, Buffalo Exchange and any cool thrift stores for old Levis, vintage dresses and coats! Oh how I love vintage coats. My passion turned toward vintage and antique jewelry in the 1990's onward. It is great fun to be a collector!

Many years later I get married, move to the Pacific Northwest and eventually start Zephyr Vintage, which focuses on vintage jewelry and accessories. Having the knowledge of what is collectible from a collector’s standpoint has been tremendously useful in this business. Meanwhile, I have been selling professionally since 2009 and continue to learn more about collectible designers, styles and materials.

It has been a great experience selling amongst the etsy community. It is a joy connecting with people from all over the world and all walks of life.

But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Items on sale
Our goal is for your full satisfaction and to create a relationship where you want to return and shop with us again. We do accept returns, however unless there was a significant error on our part, a 20% restocking fee and original shipping will be deducted from a refund.

We provide measurements, weight (when applicable), a full description indicating any flaws or damage and plenty of photos in each listing to give an accurate representation of our pieces. All items are antique or vintage and will show some level of wear due to age and prior use. Please visit our FAQ's for criteria regarding vintage condition. We advise buyers to know their measurements prior to purchasing. Questions are welcomed!

The following are instructions for requesting a return:

1. The buyer must communicate via etsy email any concerns about an item purchased within 3 days from delivery (as determined by delivery tracking). The item must be shipped back within 7 days from when the return is authorized by the seller. It is the buyers responsibility to open the package and inspect the product in a timely manner.

2. The buyer pays all shipping costs to return or exchange an item, unless there was a significant error on our end.

3. Please return the item in the gift box and/or bag sent. Returns should be shipped with delivery tracking. Please provide us the tracking information following shipment. We highly recommend the purchase of insurance as buyers are responsible for the risk of loss or damage.

4. All items must be returned in the condition they were in when sent. Items authorized for a return/exchange that are received back with any altering or damage that wasn't already existing or discussed when initiating a return, will not be eligible for a refund. The item will promptly be shipped back to the buyer and considered a final sale.

5. A 20% restocking fee and original shipping costs will be deducted from a refund if any items are returned without prior communication and/or if your package is returned undelivered or refused and/or if any exceptions are made and a return is granted past the 3 day period to initiate this request. This will also apply to any international packages that are refused and/or not retrieved and returned to the seller due to non payment of taxes, duty, VAT, GST or any other customs fees.

6. Items that were discounted or purchased with a coupon code are not eligible for returns or exchanges. The only exceptions are on items purchased during a shop sale, on discounts offered through our special promotions via social media or newsletter and/or if you are using a special coupon code for returning customers.
Payment
>> PAYMENT OPTIONS <<
We accept payment via Paypal and Etsy payments. With either method, you have the option of purchasing as a guest and not have to sign up for an account.

>> RESERVES <<
We can only reserve items up to 1 day for new clients and up to 3 days for returning clients. We will not reserve items at all during peak holiday shopping periods (i.e. November & December).
Shipping
Seller will ship within (1) one business day of receiving payment. We ship Monday - Friday, except on postal holidays or major holidays. If we are unable to ship within our typical one business day time frame, you will be notified via etsy email and/or a message in the listing above the description will be seen stating our next shipping day.

>> DOMESTIC SHIPPING<<
Shipping within the United States is via USPS First Class Mail. Shipping services included are delivery confirmation and shipping insurance. We offer free shipping on jewelry items. All other items are subject to shipping fees. Items over 16 oz are shipped with either USPS standard mail or priority mail. Any item(s) in the amount of $250 or more will be shipped with signature confirmation.

>> INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING <<
We offer international shipping to a limited number of countries via USPS first class international mail service. We may consider shipping to countries not listed in our shipping profiles, and if we do, we will ONLY ship via USPS Global Express Mail Flat Rate Envelope (which includes insurance & tracking). Please contact us for rates.

International customers are responsible for any and all additional taxes, duty, VAT, GST or other customs fees incurred on international packages. This is not included in the shipping price, nor does etsy collect these fees upon payment of your item(s). Each country charges a different percentage for these fees. It is the responsibility of the buyer to determine what those fees will cost and pay them at the time of delivery.

Please be advised that I will not alter or misrepresent the value of the contents, nor mark a package as a "gift" on customs documents.

>> EXPEDITED SHIPPING <<
We offer expedited shipping on domestic orders only. If you wish to upgrade shipping, it will need to be added during checkout or adjusted in the listing prior to purchase. We cannot apply expedited shipping fees after an order has been placed.

You can choose to upgrade shipping to either USPS priority mail (2-3 days) or USPS priority express mail (1-2 days). The rates are posted for both options during check out. We also offer the option to purchase signature confirmation and it is recommended for any buyers who do not have a PO Box or secure location for delivery.

If you upgrade to expedited shipping, the order must be placed by 9:00 AM PST to ship out same day. Time to prepare the order and post office cut off times will determine same day or next day shipping. Please contact us prior to purchasing expedited shipping to determine if your package can be shipped within your desired time frame.

>> DAMAGED OR LOST PACKAGES <<
If your item was damaged during the shipping process, we must be notified within (1) one day from when it was delivered, no exceptions. We will request proof of damage via photos (of the box & items) for insurance purposes. Also, we will request that you complete an affidavit (online) for the insurance company to process the claim. This is required to complete the claim,

If your package has not shown as delivered via delivery tracking after 20 days for domestic packages and 45 days for international packages, please contact us to initiate a search via USPS. If the package has been determined as lost, seller will file a lost package claim with the insurance carrier. An online affidavit form submitted by the buyer is also required in this scenario.

In either scenario, you will be refunded once the claim has completed processing and the seller is reimbursed.

Please be advised, buyers must have a secure delivery location. Shipping insurance carriers will not accept claims for packages missing or stolen upon a documented final delivery scan. Unfortunately we cannot offer refunds or reimbursement in this scenario. The buyer will be responsible for filing a missing package claim with their local post office and/or reporting the theft to authorities. The option to purchase signature confirmation during checkout is available.
Additional policies and FAQs
Our number one goal is to create a positive buying experience, one where you will want to return and shop with us again. However, buyers need to review all aspects of the item description and photos prior to purchasing.

We provide enlarged photos for detail. Please note that often our items will look larger in the photos than in real life. Measurements, weight (when applicable) and any other descriptive info are provided. We also mention any significant flaws or damage. All items are vintage, so there will be some level of wear (see our description of vintage in FAQ's). Also, color can vary from one computer or mobile device to another.

Questions prior to purchase are welcomed and any inquiries are normally responded to within 24 hours.

Frequently asked questions

What is vintage condition?

Due to the nature of what we sell, all items are sold in "as is" vintage condition. All items we offer range in age from 20 - 100+ years old. Therefore you can expect some level of wear. Expected level of wear is defined as minor surface scratches, nicks, tiny chips, light tarnish, fading or minor finish loss. If there is anything beyond the expected level of wear and tear from age and prior use, then we make note of it in the description and provide photographs.

What payment options are accepted?

We accept payment via Paypal or Etsy Payments. With either method, you have the option of purchasing as a guest and not have to sign up for an account.

Items are shipped within 1 business day, Monday - Friday except on postal holidays and major holidays.

Our non jewelry items are packaged with bubble wrap, peanuts, paper or other materials to safely and securely ship your item. Most are sent in a sturdy cardboard box.

We offer gift wrapping of your purchase per your request at no extra charge. We are happy to create a beautiful package for you.
