Additional return information
REFUNDS Due to the delicate nature of Vintage and Antiques, returns are NOT accepted and refunds are NOT given. It is my belief that too much handling and shipping of Vintage and Antique items could diminish their condition and lessen their value.
EXCEPTIONS TO RETURN POLICY If I have grossly misrepresented an item. If you ever feel that I have, PLEASE CONTACT ME IMMEDIATELY, and together, we can resolve any issue.
Always contact me with any concerns or issues with your order. It is important to me to make things right and make improvements.

DAMAGED/LOST ORDERS If damaged or lost issues arise, you must first fully complete the process with USPS/Shipper claim form. Please know it is necessary to keep all packaging "As Is" for damaged items as well as photograph for claim process. In the case of "STOLEN" items, it is up to the buyer to contact Police for reporting. Seller is not responsible for lost, stolen or damage during transit.
EXCHANGES They will only be given in special cases and will likely be an exchange of an item I have multiples of with varying degrees of condition.
UNCLAIMED PACKAGES When items are returned to me as UNCLAIMED, they will be relisted without refund unless the buyer contacts me to have the items reshipped at their own expense. Buyer is responsible for any and all shipping fees.
In your receipt section, Etsy provides Tracking Number so you will know when your items will arrive. USPS will make note in the Tracking section when they leave a notice at your address for you to pick up the item. You are well informed of your package location with this Tracking information.
REVIEWS My hope is that buyers will leave positive reviews as this helps build trust for future customers of Throw It Forward. Please do contact me if you have any issues or concerns with your order. I am VERY thankful to all the buyers who have taken the time to leave reviews.
PRICING My goal regarding pricing is to price according to the going rate for each piece of vintage. I research items listed and prefer to provide fair market value priced items. If I devalue an item, please know that it's most likely that the item I have for sale is in less comparable condition than that of the going rate.
CLEANING VINTAGE ITEMS The items listed in my shop have been minimally cleaned, sometimes not at all cleaned or polished, to preserve their Vintage character and charm (aka patina). You may want to do a more thorough cleaning to your liking. Vintage items tend to be delicate and sensitive to harsh cleaners so I advise to research various methods before hand.
SOLD AS FOUND Those items that have not been thoroughly cleaned. This most likely means more detailed cleaning is needed and typically, prices will reflect this.
Please do FAVORITE my shop & come back often as items generally will be listed daily to weekly. https://www.etsy.com/shop/ThrowItForward
