Vintage Joy Store sells vintage garments & accessories. By definition, vintage items are as "new" as 20 years, or older, and have been described as accurately as possible: with flaws described and or pictured.

** INTERNATIONAL BUYERS**

Due to many queries, I am in the process of evaluating shipping to some countries other than Canada and inside the United States.

On one recent item, for example Federal Express International, for a standard size box is around $210 to ship. There is total tracking on this type of service.

United Parcel Service (UPS) is around $166.

USPS International shipped the item with tracking and insurance, for about $60, in this particular case.

You, as the buyer, will still have to pay any customs fees on your side.

If you are a serious international buyer, I will work with you on a case by case basis.

Some countries can not be shipped to.

Please do not buy until after I send you the shipping info and you agree to the rates.

Then I will set it up in Etsy by your country with pricing, which will include tracking and insurance via USPS., or other method as you want and agree to.

If you want complete and total tracking, I am happy to send via United Parcel Service, (UPS) or Federal Express International, but it will be more expensive.

US and Canadian Buyers:

*Shipping will include tracking confirmation and insurance fees. Items over $250 will have signed delivery signature required, as Etsy Policy requires.

*All items are shipped via United States Postal Service with tracking information and delivery confirmation, or via UPS (United Postal Service). Insurance is included, and if damage occurs during shipping, then it is the buyer's responsibility to follow up with USPS and or UPS. Vintage Joy Store is happy to give all needed information.

Purchased item ships after payment clears.

Please allow 1 to 2 weeks. We have many commitments and will try to ship sooner, but to ensure reality, we list at two weeks maximum. Enjoy the anticipation of your new item!

SO: Please check all garment measurements with your own garments before purchasing. Ask any questions on fabric, color, etc., sometimes there are extra photos which can be sent via email.

While I do try to describe all imperfections, and photograph them, and sometimes I will send full disclosure photos and or emails to confirm that you understand the item is not perfect and where the imperfections are after purchase, to verify. I do want you to be happy and know this, before shipping.

The size listed is the size of the garment, so your lovely self must be smaller in order to fit into the garment!
