Estimated Shipping

Zip or postal code

I usually ship orders on the next business day from when the order is received, but will ship them on the second business day, at the latest.

The shipping prices listed are generally based on shipping guidelines for USPS Parcel Post. Please let me know if you need an item by a specific deadline or just prefer expedited shipping. I am happy to accommodate these needs, whenever possible, and will look up expedited prices upon request.

Shipping is not refundable.

Please do not ask me to mark items as gifts. Customs is aware that shipping labels printed with Etsy are purchases and it is not worth risking my business license and I don't want you to get fined!

Customs charges are based on the country in which the buyer is located. I do not know what items will be charged customs fees in your country or how much they might cost. Please consider possible customs charges before making purchases, and contact your local postal service for more information.


Paypal is the preferred method, but you can use also credit cards or contact me with any questions.

Layaway and Reservations:

The Lion's Den is happy to offer layaway. Customers may reserve an item with a 20% down payment and then pay the remaining balance within 30 days. For larger purchases the balance can be split into three monthly payments. If an item is $1,000.00 the customer can reserve it with a down payment of $200.00 and either pay the remaining $800 within 30 days or pay $266.66 per month for three months. Please send me a message if you would like to set up layaway.

Layaways are non-refundable. If the customer decides they do not want the item the down payment will become store credit.

Additional return information
Shipping Issues: While I certainly hope for everything to go perfectly, sometimes the postal system simply refuses to cooperate. If anything goes wrong with shipping please just send me a message and we will work it out.

Refunds: I will happily send a full refund for returned items, if I have made a mistake or misrepresentation in the listing. I do not refund items returned for imperfections, color, or measurements that are photographed, listed, or described in the listing. (In the case of any exceptions, I will charge a 20% restocking fee.)

Returns: If you want to return something for any reason other than a listing error, please return the item within 14 days of receipt for exchange or store credit. Shipping is not refundable.

Items purchased with coupon codes or while on sale are final sale.

Discounted items cannot be reserved.

***Please take the time to read the listing before making a purchase.***
Please view all pictures, read descriptions, and double check measurements with a measuring tape!

Vintage Condition: Most of my items are vintage and sold in as-is condition. Even the nicest vintage items are not perfect. They do have tiny imperfections from use and I am not able to show every detail in five photographs, but I do try to describe and photograph any noticeable flaws and accurately describe the condition. Please review all photographs, descriptions, and measurements before buying and understand that my items are vintage and not brand new.

Purse/Bag Measurements: Use the measurements provided, not the item description, to determine how a bag can be worn or used. I do not know your height, style, or the size of your electronics. Something I consider "cross body" may not be long enough for your height or style preference. It is very hard to tell the size of a bag just by looking at pictures and many styles that look exactly the same come in multiple sizes. Please check the measurements, to avoid unhappy surprises!

I try to write very accurate descriptions in order to avoid returns. Please consider your purchases before buying, I want you to be happy! Customer service is important to me, I will do my best to solve any problems.

Additional policies

Environmental Responsibility:

The Lion's Den is dedicated to the efficient and responsible use of resources, as might be expected of a business built around the restoration and sale of high quality, pre-owned, vintage items. About 90% of the packaging materials used for shipping are recycled. I save All boxes, paper, packing peanuts, and bubble wrap that I receive and collect them from friends and local businesses. On the rare occasion that I run out and need to purchase packaging materials, I only buy biodegradable packing peanuts and paper products made from recycled materials. If you ever receive styrofoam packaging peanuts with you order, rest assured that they were reused. The tissue paper that I use for wrapping is made from 100% post consumer recycled materials.
My first priority in packaging fragile items, is making sure that they have sufficient padding to arrive safely, but I will always make an effort not to use more than is necessary. While presentation of your purchase is important to me, I do keep decorative paper wrapping and branded marketing materials to a minimum in an effort to reduce waste. If you are ordering a gift and are concerned about the appearance of recycled packing materials, please just let me know and I will work with you!


Feel free to make an offer if you wish, but please understand that due to time constraints, I do not answer emails containing unreasonably low offers or the question "what is your best price?", as that is noted in the listings.

Measurements are found towards the bottom of the item description.

Shipping prices are located in the shipping tab to the upper right hand of item descriptions.
