The humble beginnings of a not so humble desire.
I have been collecting vintage pieces that caught my eye since I was 8. My grandmother, who had a fierce sense of style, would take me to the local thrift store. I was often given the grand sum of 45 cents to buy whatever I desired. Since I am definitively vintage, that 45 cents went a long way, everytime.
A gentle friend of mine encouraged me to open this shop on Etsy. What a joy for me to begin a business here! My Etsy shop allows me to continue my real passion: THE HUNT! I truly love to shop vintage and antiques. When I find something that I feel is a true beauty and really fabulous, I get a little excited when I buy it! What amazes me is that I am always excited for the next hunt and the delight never seems to cease.
BeautimousVintage is the combination of the beautiful and the fabulous things that I find. I am thrilled to offer these things to you in an Etsy shop. What I buy and what I sell here I loved the minute I saw it. I hope you do, too!
Enjoy your shopping!
Taste is an individual thing. Style is something developed over time and exposure to life. Vintage lovers marry taste and style. If you love vintage, you have a rich appreciation of the best of life. I'd like to think I do, too

It is a wonderful compliment that you have decided to purchase from BeautimousVintage. I prefer PayPal. When paying with PayPal, I accept only CONFIRMED & VERIFIED Payments. Your purchase will be refunded and cancelled if it does not meet these requirements. What does that mean, really?
A CONFIRMED ADDRESS: PayPal has confirmed that you live where you say you live. If you are shipping to an alternate address as with a gift, please add that address to your Paypal account BEFORE paying for your order. I only accept payments from users who have a Confirmed Address.
VERIFIED ACCOUNT: This means that PayPal has verified your account by associating a bank account with your PayPal account. I only accept payments from Verified Users.
I reserve the right to REFUND and CANCEL any transactions which do not comply with PAYPAL guidelines or the guidelines I have listed here.
I prefer to approve international purchases individually. Please contact me prior to placing an order. Past fraudulent buyer activity has made this a necessity. I shall also charge for tracking to your door. This is non-negotiable due to fraudulent buyers.
Thank you for your understanding on this issue.
Please contact me prior to making a purchase. I prefer to quote international shipping rates individually as weight and regulations in other countries are so very critical.
