About TheBlackCatVBoutique

Sales 801
On Etsy since 2013

I bet she shops at the BlackCat Boutique...

The BlackCat Boutique is based in the Wild West of Cornwall, and is owned and run by Nina. Born from a love of old fashioned styles and music, she sells Vintage and Antique textiles of quality, objects of desire and clothes that tell stories. Everything stocked is handpicked with an eye for the unusual, collectable and wearable.
Nina’s interest in Vintage began as a teenager in the 90s, where she enjoyed trawling Jumble Sales for old clothes that offered freedom from the monotony of the High Street. A longstanding passion for collecting beautiful, wearable treasure began, fuelled by an appreciation for quality in dressmaking techniques that seems mostly to be lost to the ordinary modern-day shopper, and always by a strong sense of nostalgia – there is magic in the clothes that tell stories of lives lived and times gone...
A strong hoarding instinct inevitable led to opening the shop in 2008, which formed part of Falmouth’s vibrant, fast growing enclave of independent traders up the Old High Street, until the arrival of her daughter persuaded her to abandon bricks and mortar in favour of the flexibility of trading online. Pieces from The BlackCat Boutique have found their way into the wardrobes of private customers across the globe, have been collected for reference by contemporary designers, and have been used in Film, Television and Theatre, including the Channel 4 programme on Vintage Fashion, 'This Old Thing'.

Delivery

I aim to post out items within 3-4 working days, but if you're in a hurry please get in touch and I can arrange speedier dispatch.

Within the United Kingdom, I use a Royal Mail recorded service to insure guaranteed, tracked delivery.

For International orders I use Royal Mail international signed for Airsure service, which is trackable and provides a signature upon arrival.

Please note that any customs or import duties are born by the recipient of the parcel.

If you would like to use an economy postal service to reduce shipping costs this is not a problem, but please note that your item may not be insured to its full value.

I usually estimate shipping charges, and if I overcharge I always refund the difference, minus the packaging costs.

Please note that all packaging is carefully selected to be as eco as we can go! The tissue paper is recycled, packing is re-cycle able paper sacks and parcel tape is paper or polypropylene. Our postcards are printed using eco inks on recycled card.

Additional policies and FAQs

Please don't hesitate to get in touch with me if you have any questions, problems or concerns with your order - I will always get back to you as soon as I can.

There are plenty of online resources demonstrating how to effectively take your measurements, but as a general rule, the bust is measured by running the tape around the fullest part (do not pull tight), for the waist, run the tape around and pull fairly tight, and the hip measurement is taken where the pelvic bone sticks out below the waist.
