How it all began....!

Back in the late 70s it wasn’t all flares and disco glamour, as a teenage punk it was all about creating my own look and standing out from the crowd. You made your own style, customising clothes, rummaging around at Jumble sales and poking around in Charity shops, and of course our parents’ generation had imbued us with the wartime ethos of make do and mend which was inventive by its very nature! Back then and into the 80s you could still find vintage treasures going right back to the 1920s, and older, for pennies, perfect if you wanted to be different and make a statement, which we did through our clothes and music.
Well things may have changed a bit but my love of treasure hunting and being inventive with fashion and style haven’t, and I like to think I still have a fair bit of attitude! But I can’t keep every find to myself so through The Gilded Lily uk I can offer some lovely vintage treasures to others, and I can also offer the end results of keeping the creative juices flowing with handmade jewellery and hair accessories.
So have a rummage and a poke around, I hope you find something you like!

If you take a peek on my The Gilded Lily Facebook page you'll find some of the retro and revamped treasures I have on offer which aren't vintage but just look it!! I will be adding to these over time. If something takes your fancy let me know via Facebook. There are some great pics included above taken by my youngest daughter, with friends modelling, that show how you can create a good vintage look.

Returns and exchanges
I will always try to ensure that buyers are happy with their purchase, however if there is an issue please refer to the notes below:-

-Returns are accepted on UK sales only, for a full refund of the purchase price, under below conditions:
- Please contact me asap after receiving your item if you have any queries and then, if required, post back the item within 3 business days of original receipt, or advise me if there is a reason for delay. (Tracked/signed for postage is recommended, as any return lost in the mail will not be refunded.)
- Any garments must be returned in original condition, unworn and unwashed . If an item is sent back and is damaged in any way, I reserve the right not to refund the return and the item will be sent back to you.
- Refund is for the purchase price only. Original shipping costs and return shipping costs will not be refunded unless the return is a result of my error.

I would love your international custom, but please note I do not offer general returns on International sales, so please read all available information and contact me if you have any questions before final purchase!

Refunds will be processed through PayPal or Etsy Payments.

PLEASE REMEMBER I WANT YOU TO BE A HAPPY CUSTOMER SO PLEASE CONTACT ME VIA ETSY FOR INFORMATION, whether before purchase, about postage, about returns, with any queries you may have!

I welcome your feedback!
I currently take payment via PayPal and via Etsy Payments/Direct Checkout at time of order which is my preferred method of payment. However, I can agree payment by the 'Other' option for LOCAL prearranged payment methods, BUT PLEASE MESSAGE ME FIRST to discuss this payment option!

Any refunds will be processed through PayPal or Etsy once the item is returned.
I ship from Bristol, UK, 1-3 working days after your purchase.

Due to postal charge increases I will be shipping via Royal Mail Signed For Second Class in the UK. This will be for items of greater value. Smaller items may be sent Royal Mail Second Class Standard.

If you would like your parcel to arrive sooner, I can offer a postage upgrade.
Please send me a message BEFORE your order is processed if you need to discuss any other postage options as I will need to make necessary adjustments!

For International buyers I will ship purchases to you using the best option for your country with Royal Mail Tracked and Signed For and, in the case of small items, Standard Shipping, but please note the customer pays for any extra customs fees and taxes.

If you live in Bristol or nearby perhaps you might like to collect from me direct, send me a message BEFORE purchase and order processing if this will work better for you!
Additional policies and FAQs
Please remember that vintage items are of course preowned and preloved and have in many cases been around for several decades! This naturally means they are not in 'mint' condition, which is part of their charm and gives them unique qualities. I will always check for flaws, damage or imperfections and endeavour to let you know about them wherever possible as part of the item's description. Bear in mind one person's imperfection may be another's accepted sign of vintage preloved charm! All sales are based on accepting and understanding this important part of vintage purchasing. They may not have size tags or if they do, are generally not comparable to today's standards. Measurements should be compared to a garment that you own that fits you well. All garments have been washed or cleaned appropriately. Please contact me before you make your purchase if you are in doubt or have any questions. I want you to be happy with your purchase!
I will only use the details you provide for shipping and payment purposes via Etsy. I will not be sharing your details with any other third party for any other purpose.
