Shipping & policies
** USA **
Most items ship via USPS. FedEx is offered in some cases. Shipping includes tracking and is only to the address listed on the Etsy receipt. Expedited shipping is offered as a checkout option on many listings. If you don't see this and would prefer expedited shipping please contact the shop for a quote.
** International **
Select items are available for shipping internationally. If you do not see an international shipping option for an item, please feel free to contact the shop to see if the option is available.
International shipping is via USPS, and only to the address listed on the Etsy receipt. Please be aware that you are responsible for any and all customs fees, taxes, duties, etc. that may be required at your destination. Additionally, any delivery delays or lost packages may need to be pursued with your local postal service. I will assist in any way I can, but once a package leaves the USA the delivery responsibility lies with the destination postal service.
** Shipping and Packaging Costs **
Shipping costs are either flat rate or automatically calculated based on the destination ZIP/postal code. Flat rates are generally used when a USPS flat rate box makes the most sense (e.g., heavier items) or for items like books that ship via USPS Media Mail.
For some items a modest cost is included for packaging materials. These costs are based solely upon my costs in getting your item(s) safely and securely to you. I do not profit from shipping/packaging costs and do not apply mark-ups.
If a shipping overage occurs for a calculated shipping rate (i.e., the final shipping cost proves less than you paid) I will return the difference back to you if greater than $2.00. Though uncommon, this can sometimes happen if the final shipping weight of a package varies a bit from that used when preparing a listing.
** Insurance, Signed Delivery Confirmation **
Insurance and/or signed delivery confirmation will be included for some items (e.g., fragile or rare items), and this will be be noted in an item's listing. If insurance or signed delivery confirmation are not indicated in a listing, you may request these services by simply contacting me. Since items are generally packaged and shipped quickly, I respectfully ask that you contact me with your preferences either before purchase or with a note at checkout. Any additional insurance and/or signed delivery costs are to be paid prior to shipping.
** Combined Shipping **
Shop inventory may ship from either OR or MN, so combined shipping may not be available in all cases. Please contact the shop if you are interested in multiple items and would like to see if combined shipping is available. If actual combined shipping+packaging costs prove lower than what you paid for the individual items, the difference will be refunded back to you if greater than $2.00.
** Carrier Delays **
Refunds are not provided for carrier shipping delays outside of my control (e.g., weather, holidays, forwarding, etc.) unless a service with money-back guaranteed delivery has been purchased. For USPS this would be Priority Mail Express. If you are interested in that service and do not see it listed for an item please contact the shop for a quote.
** Pet Friendly Home **
Inventory is stored and shipped from a pet-friendly home (canine and feline). Isolated storage and packaging areas are maintained, however, if you or loved one(s) are pet-sensitive please note I cannot offer a 100% guarantee that each and every item will be completely free of allergens. Items are inspected prior to shipping and compressed air and/or a sticky roller are used on items where appropriate.
** Recycled Packaging Materials **
Some of the items I ship will use recycled materials for packaging (e.g., boxes, bubble wrap, etc.). Materials are blown off with compressed air and inspected in order to ensure they are appropriate for re-use. I do not use recycled materials for the actual wrapping of objects themselves. Objects are first wrapped / enclosed using new materials.
Payment may be made through Etsy's direct checkout system or via PayPal for USA purchases. For international purchases payment may be made through Etsy's direct checkout system.
Minnesota residents are charged the MN state sales tax, currently 6.875%, unless an item is categorically exempt (e.g., clothing).
International customers please note that you are responsible for any and all customs fees, taxes, duties, etc. that may be required at your locale. These are not included in the listing price.
Returns & exchanges
** Returns Accepted For Shop Credit Only **
Returns are accepted for shop credit as long as item(s) are returned within 14 days of the date I ship to you. Shop credit will be valid for 1 year from the purchase date of the original item(s) and will exclude any original outward bound shipping costs.
Return shipping costs are the responsibility of the customer. Insurance is recommended, especially when returning fragile items.
Item(s) must be returned in the same condition as received, and in the case of a multiple item lot, or an item with multiple parts (manuals, accessories, etc.), everything must be returned together.
Ensure that you get a tracking number from your carrier (USPS, UPS, FedEx, etc) when posting a return parcel. A tracking number is required, and should be sent in a message to the shop using Etsy's messaging system.
** Order Cancellations **
Cancellation requests will be honored if received before an item has shipped. If postage has already been purchased for your shipment that cost is non-refundable. Once an item has shipped the return/shop credit policy detailed above will apply.
** Digital Downloads **
There are no credits, refunds or cancellations on digital file downloads. If you have any questions regarding digital files please ensure you ask them prior to purchase.
** Condition of Vintage and Antique Items **
Many older items display wear and handling evidence and are rarely "like new" or "mint." I will describe items as accurately as possible, but there is some subjectivity involved and it's possible that not every age-related use or wear point is described (we all see things with different eyes, and that's a good thing!). If you have any questions about an item, its description, or photos, please feel free to contact me. I respectfully ask that any specific questions you have about an item be asked before purchasing.
** What Does "Vintage" Mean? **
I follow Etsy's definition of vintage, which dates items to "sometime before 1996." Some items may be close to this threshold, and some may be considerably older. In some cases it is not possible to date an item with 100% accuracy. I rely on things like provenance/picking context, appearance, comparison with other objects, reference guides, and plain old experience.
** Images **
My goal is to provide an objective, neutral visual representation of the items I list. Individual computer monitors, web browsers and color calibrations vary, however, so actual colors and brightness of an item may appear different in person. If you would like an additional image or different view of an item, please message me and I'll be glad to help.
** Measurements **
Measurements provided in listings should be considered approximate to within a quarter of an inch. For vintage clothing it is important to refer to the actual measurements listed for an item and not just rely on what a label or tag indicates.
** Thank You and Feedback **
Customer feedback is important to me. I genuinely enjoy hearing from folks, and am grateful when I learn something new or someone points out something I simply hadn't thought of before. I want your experience at Diadem Vintage and Visuals to be a happy one. If your experience is unsatisfactory in any way contact me and let me know why. I will do my utmost to ensure that any problems or issues are promptly addressed and resolved.
Thank You for Visiting!
