Policies

My goal is to make sure you are happy and satisfied with your purchase. VINTAGE pieces are not new, nor usually perfect - there may be minor imperfections or evidence of wear. I will try to accurately describe each piece, including any noticeable flaws. The photos are untouched and are meant to give an accurate look at the items. My pieces have been a cherished part of my family, and I would like you to appreciate them just as much.

I review every piece and carefully and gently clean them, paying attention to the materials used (some natural materials cannot be wet.) I use only natural cleaners - no chemicals. All earring posts (as well as backs of clip-ons and screw mounts) are sanitized.
After cleaning, each piece is carefully stored and protected from the elements. (I rarely participate in markets or fairs, so my jewelry is not being handled or soiled.)

PLEASE NOTE: My photos are professionally done, and often highly magnified. Though this helps you to see the details of each piece (more than meets the eye), it may make items appear larger than they are. Please read the measurements in the description to know the actual size of each piece.

SHIPPING: Items will be packaged with care and and well protected. I usually also enclose the item in plastic (bag or wrap) as extra protection from the elements during shipping. I try to ship the next business day, and include a tracking number. (There will be a delay if my 'Vacation notice' is on and I am away from the office.) Standard shipping will be First Class; perhaps priority if you are ordering multiple pieces, or priority flat rate if that is the best rate. If you need your items sent Priority or Express Mail, or sent outside the USA, please ask me before you order so I can advise and adjust the correct shipping cost.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: I can ship to most countries but MUST follow the USA mail regulations, and those of your county (some countries do not allow watches, gold, silver, etc.); and I cannot send ivory, bone or some other organic based materials outside the USA. The price for international shipping is based on weight and starts at about $12 USD for First Class, and $26 USD for a flat rate Priority package up to 4 pounds (about 1.8 kilos). Priority Mail is traceable and can include other some small items in the same box without incurring an additional charge. Contact me for the specific cost to send your item(s).

PAYMENT: I accept Pay Pal or money orders.

REFUNDS: If you are truly unhappy with your purchase, or feel the items did not meet your expectations, contact me within 7 days of receipt, and I will refund your purchase price (original shipping, return shipping or insurance are not usually refunded). The item(s) must be returned in its original condition. If an item arrives to you damaged, contact me immediately and I will do my best to solve the problem. Please photograph it before removing from the packaging, and return it with all the original packaging.
