I will be out of the studio for a buying trip for March 8-15th. All items purchased and paid for during this time frame will not be shipped until March 16th. When buying vintage furs please factor in that this is an especially delicate item to invest in. I always always ALWAYS do my best to spot "red flags" prior to investing in fur pieces (mildew, stains, stiff pelts, tears or shedding). Most furs have a life expectancy of 30+ years UNLESS they were not stored in a climate controlled environment. I am NOT the original owner of any of the furs I sell. That being said I can not be 100% certain how the furs have been stored by their previous owners.
All sales are final - if you have ANY questions please ask them before offerding on my sales!
Payment is expected within 3 days of the end of sale. If payment is not received by the 4th day after the sale closes a "non-paying buyer" claim will be automatically opened by .
I can combine shipping and offer discounts for multiple items purchases - INQUIRE BY EMAIL!
I will only ship to PayPal confirmed addresses. All packages will have a tracking number. Items over $250 require Signature Confirmation (at my cost).
Shipping in the Continental US is First Class Mail or Priority Mail (depending on weight and value of item) with Delivery Confirmation unless otherwise noted. I ship within 2 business days of receiving payment. Shipping within the USA takes about 2-5 days depending on location. I ship Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays (as long as the USPS is open). If shipping day falls on a holiday I ship the following business day.
First Class International or Priority Mail (depending on weight and value of item) for International buyers is an additional $25 unless otherwise noted under my shipping policy.
I am in no ways responsible for any customs fees for international shipping... including Duty Fees and VAT (Value Added Tax) Fees. I cannot guarantee the delivery time of International packages however if your item is not received after 10 business days please contact me. If the package is declared lost by the USPS I will refund the item plus shipping fees 100% (the USPS usually lets me know the official status of a package within 48 hours).
Pretty please note that all sales are final!!! I devote A LOT of time to hand select, inspect and measure the items I offer. Accurate measurements are taken by laying the garment flat and doubling the numbers for bust, waist and hips. Any imperfections will be listed in the CONDITION section. Vintage items have a previous loved history, thus having been pre-owned, they will show signs of their past life.
Fabric of items may crease temporarily during shipping - I use a professional grade commercial streamer prior to wearing items in my personal collection and I suggest to my customers they do the same. I will not consider returns on items that have been ironed causing the fabric to burn or melt. If you are a serious collector of vintage and designer pieces I recommend you invest in a good garment steamer. Trust me - it is one of the best investments I've ever made!
In no way do I alter images to hide damage to items (I will admit clone stamping a facial blemish every now and then though). I always try my best to convey the true color of the garment - however, variations in color can occur in different computer monitors. I rarely modify my items to cater to modern trends (for instance mullet hemlines). Occasionally I may take a hem up if the garment is damaged and can be resurrected by doing so. All modifications will be clearly noted.
I inherited my Grandmother's super sense of smell and I do not buy or sell items that smell "funky" (smoke, mothballs, mildew or body odor). Most of my items are either hand-washed with Woolite or professionally dry-cleaned (with the exception of some coats and extremely delicate antique items) - some items are spot treated with a professional grade dry-cleaning solution called AFTA (great product BTW) in order to remove difficult stains. I am a collector of antiques and vintage furs in my home/studio. I also wear perfume (on myself NOT the clothing, and in moderation of course). If you are highly sensitive to dry-cleaning solvents, minute amounts of perfumes, dust or fur please consider this before offerding on my items.
I can not emphasize enough to check the dimensions provided on my listing prior to offerding. I provide a estimated size of the garment - if you are a LARGE do not buy a SMALL garment or vice versa.I recently had a woman destroy a beautiful mink coat I sold to her from blowing out the shoulders. The coat was advertised as a SM/MED and she is a LG/XLG. HEARTBREAKING.
I buy and sell ALL SIZES and have expertise knowledge of "fit" - email me if in doubt about garment sizing (I love helping my customers). If you see a item you LOVE listed that is too small or large for you feel free to email me requesting I keep my eyes open for a similar item during one of my many buying sprees - THERE IS NOTHING I LOVE MORE THAN THE HUNT!
I will not return items due to broken zippers. ALL zippers have been tested, on track and functioning prior to shipment. I love the history behind vintage zippers and I believe they contribute to the over-all charm of the vintage garment - however be warned that some vintage zippers can be a tad more difficult to use compared to modern zippers. A trick I have learned is to GENTLY run a dry bar of soap over the teeth of the zipper to ease function. Careful though - they sometimes get fussy like to "bite" the delicate fabric surrounding the teeth!!! Remember you are dealing with a historical garment - treat it with respect and be gentle - and if it don't fit don't force it! VINTAGE ITEMS ARE TRUELY ONE OF A KIND!
For insurance purposes I take professional high resolution quality images of each item before they ship.
I tag all items prior to shipment. Please do not RIP the tag off the garment - there is a handy invention called "scissors" that you should use to do so. If you remove the tags I will make the assumption that you are 100% satisfied with your purchase. I am not responsible for any damage to the garment after tags are removed! I will not consider a return unless ALL tags are attached to garment.
I'm pretty "cool" at resolving any issues with my buyers and believe communication is key for a flawless sale! Sadly I have had a couple "not so cool" transactions since I started selling on (hence the LONG winded explanation of return policy). Because of this I have a pretty strict return policy. I may offer a credit or a refund ONLY if the description of the item was GROSSLY misinterpreted (aka MAJOR damage that was not noted in description). Please acknowledge this policy before offerding on my items. Returns or exchanges will NOT be accepted due to sizing issues or minor blemishes.
If your item arrives damaged and you wish to request a refund or credit be prepared to include ALL of the following with your request within 24 hours of delivery confirmation:
1.) Images of the damage to the actual item.2.) Images of the damage to the package it was shipped in (if any - Also please do not toss away the damaged packaging. A claim can be filed with USPS if appropriate evidence of a damaged shipment is presented).3.) All tags on the item must be intact for consideration of refund or exchange.
*** In addition I may ask for a image of you you wearing the item (yes I know it sounds odd but I do this to avoid buyers attempting to return or exchange items due to ill fit - sadly it has happened).
*** If you smoke and receive a damaged item please immediately enclose the item in a airtight container (for instance a trash bag) and store somewhere far far away from smoke until you can ship item back to me. I will not consider a refund or exchange if an item is returned to me smelling of smoke.
If you cannot send the requested images and information within 24 hours there will be NO RETURN, NO EXCHANGE - NO EXCEPTION!!!
If a refund or credit is agreed upon damaged items must be shipped back to me with a return Delivery Confirmation no more than 2 business days.
I will NOT entertain returns or exchanges if negative response has been left first.
Like mentioned before - I'm pretty "cool" with resolving any issues my customers may have. If a problem arises it would be more in your favor to be "cool" back to me. I am completely open to hearing out any response and opinions about the transaction as long as they are conveyed to me tastefully and rationally. You catch more flies with honey...
