All Books now have FREE SHIPPING within the USA !!! (using media mail, if you need them in a hurry, I'll have to charge you the difference )
99% of the time your package will arrive without issues and on time, that 1% of orders could be late, held up, lost, or damaged. If your package is lost, please be aware that you, as the receiver,will have to fill out a lost package form. if you parcel is held up at a distant post office, I'm sorry to say there's really nothing I can do about that. If you have a problem with this and tend to freak if everything doesn't go your way, please do NOT order from me. I dislike being blamed for something I have no control over but you feel the need to vent.
Yes, some of my shipping rates may seem high. I calculate using a distant zip code ,so if you live closer, it maybe much cheaper. Please be aware I always refund the difference rounded up to the nearest dollar. I can go in a edit a listing prior to sale if a refund makes you uncomfortable. the edit may take me a day or two.
International buyers can always convo me regarding shipping rates to their country, the postal service has raised their rates so I'm warning you that often they will be ridiculously high.
"International Buyers – Please Note: Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying. I do not lie on customs forms. Don't ask. It is a $10,000 fine per infraction, and or 5 years and jail."
I'd be happy to include insurance ,signature conformation or faster service, I'll just invoice you the difference.


I prefer Etsy direct check out. it's quick and easy.
I have done layaway in the past and would ask not to do it again.
New Mexico buyers have to pay sales tax.

I provide insurance on items over $100, if you would like insurance provided on a smaller cost item please contact me ahead of time.

Returns & exchanges

As all of the vintage items are one of a kind, I can no longer except any returns and I will no longer refund the purchase price or shipping.
If you've purchased using the Etsy phone app, there maybe information you failed to read, this is pretty common but it's important that you are aware of the "item details". this is where I take a great deal of time to record measurements, condition, details and return policies. PLEASE READ IT! I will only cancel the sale before I ship the item, after that, there's no money back ,no returns. shop carefully.
Please check measurements carefully on all clothing purchases, I will not except a return because the item does not fit you. If you need more measurements, Please ask before purchasing.
If an item of clothing or textile is returned smelling of Fabreze or perfume, I will deduct the price of dry cleaning from the return price. I am highly sensitive to chemical smells and masks and ask that you do not use them on any item that you plan on returning to me. thank you for understanding !

Additional policies

I'm always happy to entertain offers and discounts. If we do agree on a price, please be aware that offer only stands for 24 hours. If you are not prepared to purchase at that time, Please refrain from making an offer
