This long piece of Bedfordshire lace was made to edge something, perhaps a wedding gown or negligee. It is 64 inches long and 4 inches deep. This is handmade and in perfect condition. It does not appear to have ever been attached to anything. Currently this is in one loop but the ends are sewn together and could be separated. The color is ivory or light oatmeal. Bedfordshire lace is often referred to as Cluny lace but the identification sources I used place this as more Bedfordshire than Cluny.
I ship Monday to Friday from Vancouver Canada except on holidays. Most items go out the next day. Purchases made after 9 a.m. Friday (Pacific time zone) will not be mailed until Monday.
I mail almost always airmail. Small packages take a couple of days longer than US first class mail usually. If you need something in a hurry email me before purchase. If I know it is impossible I will say so. But be honest. I've had people say they needed an item by a certain date when they really just wanted to make sure I wasn't delaying shipping.
Shipping price quoted includes cost of packaging, insurance when needed, etc. so if you buy multiple items you only pay for these extras once. There is no tracking from Canada ordinarily. It can be purchased but generally triples your shipping fee. I've never had a package not arrive.
I insure using a non-Canada Post insurer. If there is a claim I have to do the paperwork and in case of breakage you will have to supply photos of the damage both contents and packaging.
I try to be as accurate as possible when it come to shipping fees but sometimes I am a little off. If I overcharge you by more than a dollar I will issue a PayPal refund for the overage. If I undercharge you that is my loss. I will not ask you to pay the difference.
I accept PayPal and Direct Payment (major credit cards) via Etsy. I expect immediate payment. If this is not possible, please email me before purchase and discuss your time issues with me. I can put the item on hold for you till you are ready to pay....within reason.
Returns & exchanges
Refunds are on a case by case basis. If you need to return an item please contact me within 48 hours of receipt for instructions.
Shipping fees are never refunded unless I have made an error like send you the wrong item. All items are pre-owned so even items that have never been used may have been handled. That is not a reason to return an item. I do my best to describe an item's condition but I can be fallible.
In case of an item arriving damaged, please keep all packaging and the bits and pieces and contact me immediately. Photos may be required for your claim.
If an item does not arrive, Canada Post will not initiate a search before 30 days, 45 days for international. Meanwhile check with your local post office to see if it is sitting in a corner somewhere. Also check with your neighbors.
I am not responsible for VAT, duties and other fees assessed by the destination country. That is your responsibility. Customs forms are marked as "used" goods.
