Thank you for visiting BerovaVintage shop!
Welcome to my dream. I've always loved vintage stuff. Here I would present all these forgotten things which served us faithfully for several decades. Each item has its own previous life and bears the marks of previous owner. Sometimes it's nice preserved, sometimes quite worn due to repeated use or due to bad storage. But all these things bring the spirit of the last century in which many of us grieve. Here I try to present a part of this nostalgic past where were produced so-called iron items - "Iron" because it broke very rare because all were serviceable.
I also want to introduce you to someone hand made items such as knives, pencil holders, clocks and so on. In some Hand Made stuff I already used stuff, like old keyboards, broken HDD, vinyl records and so on. Recycles some old stuff and save the planet by at least a handful of Garbage.
You will always find a good attitude here. Prices are not final - just ask me.

Returns and exchange details
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY: I ONLY ACCEPT RETURNS FOR DAMAGED / BROKEN ITEMS.
It does state that accept returns. Etsy only gives two options..to except or not..Then I have to explain my terms. So it does read I take returns, but only for broken/ damaged items.
Please understand that in the past some have purchased items just to decorate something temporarily.. Then after they do not need the items, they want to return them. I do have to protect myself. For that reason I only accept returns on damaged items. I do not do any type of
'review and return'.
Please read the description of the item before you purchase so there are no surprises. I cannot refund for something you don't like if it is written in the description. Please do respect that.
If I did "review and return" I would have decorators buying and sending back items all day. It would cost me lost time with my pieces and the extra shipping adds the possibility of damage. I encourage questions..Please ask me many questions on a product you are interested in.
DO NOT ACCEPT RETURNS FOR CUSTOM OF MODIFIED ITEMS.
Custom and modified orders are final. I will not refund for any custom order. This is part of the agreement when ordering custom with me.
If you have questions or concerns about what you see in the photo please ask before purchasing. Think of all the questions you can BEFORE buying anything from anyone, including me. Study my photos carefully. No question is stupid. I encourage all questions.
Please inspect your item(s) promptly upon receipt. If there is damage please contact me within 48 hours for instructions on how to proceed. After 48 hours I cannot refund for the item.
For any issue please do not email me. Contact me directly through Etsy "convo". This way Etsy will be able to monitor the exchange for everyone's safety.
Before a refund can be issued for damages, you will be sent an affidavit from our insurance carrier. You MUST complete and return the affidavit before a refund will be issued. You will receive a shipping refund on damaged items only. If you receive the item damaged please take very clear photos of the item and the packaging to be able to receive your refund. Do not throw out the box. Include photos of the box.
PLEASE DO NOT JUST RETURN AN ITEM.. Notify me first. We need to discuss the options. If you return the item before any discussion I can not refund for any shipping at all. I can only give a partial refund of 25% of the item you returned. If the item is damaged in shipping back to me there will be no refund on the item. Please contact me first BEFORE returning any item. If I am not told the item came to you damaged then how will I know the damage did not occur while being shipped back to me? Protect yourself from these kind of questions.
IF THERE IS REASON FOR RETURN...
If there is a reason for return do remember that the item does belong to the purchaser until it reaches me.
1) Please wrap the item just as well as I sent it to you.
2) It is your obligation to have the item insured.
3) I can only refund for the item itself. The shipping and insurance is the purchasers responsibility.
I am no different then any brick and mortar shop. If you purchase an item from a store, then decide to return it...then drop it and break it on the way back to the store, would you receive a refund? So do pack it just the way I packed it to you..If it breaks coming back to me there is no refund from me personally.
PACKING AND SENDING
I take pride in the way everything is packaged . I want your purchase to arrive to you in great shape. I love my customers and only list items that are in the best shape.
I will clearly show the flaws of an item in the photo and description. I can not refund for flaws you already know about. Vintage, antique as well as recycled items may have flaws that I purposely want there, or they are part of time aged pieces.
All my items are checked over thoroughly before being listed.
If your item does not arrive after a reasonable time. Contact me via "convo". We will start working on an answer that you will be happy with. I want my customers to love the experience shopping with me. This includes making the shipping time smooth as possible.
Always contact me via "convo". This way Etsy can see any conversations. This is important and for your protection.
Due to the fact that many of my items are from estate sales, salvaged picks, etc, I can not guarantee that some items may not have a "vintage" odor of some kind. I try to be very careful and do clean everything very well. I use safe products to kill any odors. I will ask that you take that into account when you receive the item. It is part of the vintage and antique world ..
We do not smoke. I try not to buy items that have a cigarette odor, but I do not always catch it. Remember it was not so long ago that people could smoke everywhere.
I wish I could always promise my items were never around cigarette odor but that would be impossible. I do my best to remove odors on my pieces. I do have Lupus so I understand sensitivities. Keep that in mind when buying vintage, antique or recycled items.
I use home treatments and burlap fabric. These items can have a VERY temporary odor. It can be described as gas, lemons, smoke, sweet, etc. BUT all the odors do fade. Any tea or coffee treatments may smell like tea or coffee for a very short time. I do all of my treatments. They are better and safer. I would rather have a light odor for a week then send a item that could aggravate allergies. Contact me if the odor lasts longer than 4 weeks.
I deal with many old items. A great method to remove an item from "cigarette smoke" and "mildew odor" is to first spray the item or lightly wipe it with a mixture of vinegar and water. This kills the actual chemicals that you find in cigarettes. After a few days any lingering odor can be removed with a solution of baking soda and water. It's about 8 ounces of water and a tablespoon of baking soda. Shake it very well ... Spray lightly a few times for a few days.
All item are sold in "as is" condition. Vintage items are expected to have some wear and I always try my best to accurately describe an item and any conditions it may have and believe I should celebrate the uniqueness of each piece - flaws and all! Please contact me prior to purchase if you have any questions or would like to see additional photos.
Additional policies and FAQs
Vintage items are expected to have some wear and I always try to do my best to describe the item carefully. If you have any questions or would like to have additional information or pictures of the items, please let me know prior to the purchase.
