Returns and exchange details
Layaway items not returnable if on layaway for 6 weeks or longer.

Clothing items post-1930s: Refunds are granted less shipping costs if item is received back within 10 days of receipt of purchase for domestic buyers. For international buyers items must be returned/received back within 20 days of receipt of purchase. Items must be in same condition, undamaged and un-worn when returned. Items must be packaged same as when received. If your item was shipped with US Priority mail, please use Priority mail to return it. Ground shipping takes as much as 10 days and could result in your return window expiring. Items returned worn or damaged do not receive refunds. A 10% restocking fee may apply if items are returned late or wrinkled. Sorry... it is not that hard to nicely fold and wrap a dress! Shipping is not refundable.

No returns on sale or discounted items

Exception to return policy: clothing items pre-1940s are sold "as-is" and "all sales final" due to their antique and delicate nature. In the rare occurance that I may have misrepresented an item grossly, then returns are granted on a case by case nature.
Payment
Accepting PayPal and credit card payments through etsy.
Delivery
Most shipping quotes for domestic shipping is for USPS Priority mail or parcel post mail - if you prefer another shipping carrier (or if you require expedited shipping such as Express Next Day) please do not hesitate to convo me for a quote. I am happy to accomodate!

Domestic shipping: USPS Priority Mail with delivery confirmation (unless otherwise specified by customer). We also use parcel post shipping on large or heavy packages.

International shipping: First Class International, USPS Global Priority or International Express Mail. We happily provide Express expedited shipping on request, and also shippig via fed ex and ups on request. You can request a quote before purchase, or make the purchase and add a note at check out that you prefer Express mail.

Important Note About Customs Forms and the Law:

Packages being mailed outside the USA require customs forms. Customs forms are for declaring the contents and value of the package. Packages going into their destination countries get routed through that country's customs department. Packages of any value can be detained for inspection at any time and could delay the arrival of your package. When we at kittygirlvintage.com/etsy complete your package's custom form information, we must by law declare the value of your purchase and mark it as "merchandise". This probably will result in you having to pay a duty tax when you collect your package. We are not responsible for your country's import or duty fee laws, or the fees you have to pay by purchasing out of country. If you have a problem with that, you need to address it to your country's import department.
Additional policies and FAQs
Consignment:

I have over 10 years of consignment experience and am a consignment specialist. Let me do the work and you make the money! Contact me for details on consigning your vintage clothing.

Layaway:

Yes! I do layaway depending on the items. It is 30% down and the balance due in 2-4 weeks. I am somewhat flexible on the down payment amount, and the layaway length. You can return layaways as you would a regular purchase from my site. If a layaway item is returned, a 10% fee will be subtracted from the refund. If a layaway is canceled mid-layaway, the deposit and payments will be refunded less 15% fee.

Condition rating:

I follow the guidelines for rating vintage clothing according to the Vintage Fashion Guild, and from experience -

Vintage Fashion Guild Condition Chart:

Pristine/Perfect/Mint - as new, no flaws or wear
Excellent - lightly worn, no noticeable flaws
Very Good - used/pre-worn, minor flaws, no repairs needed
Good - visible wear. Minor flaws and or repairs needed
Fair - numerous flaws, repairs needed, fragile
Poor - extensive damage, for display or study only

Find it, love it, wear it - and very importantly, care for it! Info on caring for your vintage investment:
