The shipping amount charged for an item reflects not only the the actual postage amount posted, but handling and packing costs as well. On the other hand, If the shipping cost is over the charge I have posted, you will not be charged the additional amount.
I usually ship within three days of receiving your order. Any reason I can't, I will let you know right away. When your item is mailed, I will send you the tracking number. If for some reason, you need your item sooner, contact me and let's see if we can work it out.
I ship to your ETSY address unless you let me know otherwise at time of purchase.
US orders are shipped USPS Priority or First Class.
If you want insurance added, please let me know at time of purchase. I will bill you the additional amount.
If you prefer faster delivery or another method let me know at time of purchase. I will arrange that option and bill you for the extra cost.
With a bow toward a green planet, and thrift, I use clean recycled envelopes, boxes and packaging materials as much as possible.
INTERNATIONAL: Please contact me for a shipping quote. Most often, items are shipped the least expensive option, First Class International Mail or Priority International depending on size & weight. Please allow 1-3 weeks for delivery.
I recommend that you ADD INSURANCE, since I cannot be responsible if an item does not reach its destination. Let me know if you do wish to add it and I will include that cost in the shipping quote.
You will be responsible for any duties or other fees attached to your item as it enters your country of residence
I accept Paypal and ETSY direct checkout using your credit card.
Through special arrangement, I will accept money orders.
Returns & exchanges
I try to represent items so that you can see clearly what is being offered. And buying online can be challenging since you cannot hold the item and look look at it for yourself. Toward having a satisfactory transaction if you want more pictures or have questions or need more information, please just be in touch. I want you to love what you purchase and the only surprises should be good ones.
No expert in antiques or vintage items, I make every attempt to photograph/describe the item, including flaws, so that you can get a good idea of what is being sold.
Vintage means that items have been used and are old, with dings and dents and stains of age and wear. They are offered in “as is” condition, which often makes an item desirable and what we are buying: a sense of past use and times, other times and owners.
If an item is not as represented, let me know. My policy is to credit your account for the purchase when I receive it back in the original condition. I will pay for shipping both ways.
And, confident as I am that you will be delighted with your purchases, sometimes a item is just not a fit, so returns are accepted. Be in touch within three days of receipt and a full refund will be issued on receipt of the item in the original condition. The buyer pays for shipping both ways.
Or course, we will both be happier if you contact me with questions or requests for information or pics BEFORE you purchase, and I welcome your inquiries.
Thanks for your understanding. Peace, harmony, happiness.
Thanks for looking, or if you are shopping, a great big thanks.
I ship from a non smoking studio, though much of my fabric and rugs are vintage fabric, with unknown past lives
Even freshly laundering does not guarantee it is allergin free. My home is also smoke free, but I do have animals. While I try to be diligent, animal hair has a way of getting around and we ask you to bear this in mind if you have allergies.
