If I pay with a money order, what are the terms?
It should take less than a week to have your payment reach me, so the item you want won't be available to others for a week--on the 7th day, if payment hasn't been received, the item will be re-posted in my store so that others have a chance to buy it.
When your money order is received, your item will be mailed out in 1-2 business days AFTER the check clears.
NOTE: I will put your T--Shirt on HOLD if you e-mail me first with your full name and shipping address and phone number. If you just check out and give a fake e-mail address, phone number or incomplete name, I reserve the right to cancel the order.
What is covered in shipping and handling?!
The actual price of shipping plus a small charge to cover the cost of the packing materials and yes, gas to drive to the post office. I use lined envelopes so that you get your T-Shirts and shirts in nice condition. AND of course the tracking slip is included in the cost of mailing. Not responsible for late or lost items. ALL packages are tracked.
Where do you get your shirts?
For the most part, these shirts are used unless stated.
I started shopping at estate sales, rummage sales, church sales, etc when I was 12 years old and, have not stopped shopping! But, after decades of finding favorite things, and the fact that I am out of room, it's time for someone else to enjoy what I have found.
I take the photographs, I write the descriptions, post the sale and ship everything myself. It's a labor of love. It's also a pleasure to sell my things to someone who will hopefully LOVE it as much as I have!
Unless stated, all of the items are in good to very good condition and are smoke-free--and pet-free (although if it's from an estate sale, I can't be sure of the pet situation but I will for sure write details you need to know about.)
Remember to read the WHOLE description!!
If you have any questions, PLEASE ASK!!
How often do you ship?
On average, your purchase is mailed within 1-2 business days after your purchase. With the price of gas, I try to wait to go to the post office until I have at least a few packages to mail.
I go to the post office every few days Monday through Friday.
What payment methods do you accept?
My Paypal account accepts credit or debit cards, as well as e-checks and balance transfers. If you prefer to send payment via snail mail, I accept a money order unless you contact me for another method of payment and you get confirmation back from me.
What if I am not satisfied with my item?
PLEASE let me know RIGHT AWAY! (Within a day of the date the tracker shows the item arrived.)
My items are usually pre-owned and older, so what may be wonderful to me might not be as wonderful to you. That is why I try and describe everything in detail and encourage you to ASK questions BEFORE YOU BUY!
I try to meticulously point out blemishes that are visible. I do my best to catch them all, but we occasionally might miss something. If we miss a stain or a hole that would have been a deal breaker for you, then just let us know and we'll work it out with you.
We do not give refunds for items that do not fit properly. We give you plenty of size information for you to make an educated decision on whether or not the item will fit you. If the T-Shirt is more than 2 inches off what is written, a refund could be considered. (See refund question for details.)
Please take advantage of the measurement chart below and compare them to a similar item of you own before bidding.
And so you know..
Small is 18 inches across the chest
Medium is 20
Large is 22
XL is 24
Vintage T-Shirt are usually smaller than what their neck tag reads.
Do you ever have a sale on your items?!
I try and have fair, market value prices based on their rarity, vintage and condition, but if you are interested in something, we may be able to negotiate! JUST ASK!
And remember that there's great savings with combined shipping--just let me know what you are interested in, and I can change the shipping charges before you check out----if you use GOOGLE.....it really is great for buyers!
How do you pack your T-Shirts?
The are packed in a new plastic bag and them mailed in a new bubble wrap-lined envelope (plastic) so nothing happens to the shirt due to weather in transit. If more than one T-Shirt, they will be mailed in a box.
What if my shipment is late?!
I try and mail out orders within one or two days after the purchase and track everything! Every once and a while there is a postal snafu and things arrive later than expected. This especially happens the week or so before Christmas. Once a package has been mailed, it is out of my hands. I can not promise or guarantee that you will get your package in a timely manner and therefore there is no refund on shipping charges.
I found a Shirt that I want, but need a different size?
Sorry about that, but these Shirts are "one of a kind". I have collected them for decades though estate sales, vintage clothing stores and rummage sales so these are unique!
If you let me know what you are looking for, I will try and find what you need!
In the rare event of a refund..
We cannot refund any postage, handling, or insurance fees. Returns are shipped at buyer's expense.
Items must be returned in original packaging, unworn, unsoiled and clean condition within two business days or being received.
Used items must be returned in the same condition and packaging. All original tags (if any) must be intact.
Notification must be made within 48 hours of receiving item. Shipping charges will not be refunded for either shipping to you or your shipping the item back.
What if I don't get my shirt?!
I TRACK everything so we'll know where it is. But I CAN NOT guarantee delivery, so you can always add insurance. Since shirts don't 'break' you probably won't need it, but I can not be responsible for items lost in the mail. Check the tracking number with the post office and send me an e-mail to let me know.
What if I have a question?
Please don't hesitate to ask any question. I will get back to you as soon as I can.
But please know that if you are asking questions that are obvious and covered in the text of the item--shipping costs, payment options, etc., I may not get back to you.
How do you grade your shirts?!
I give descriptions of every shirt, and you will probably find it in better condition that what I describe---I want you to be thrilled to own it....
But for the most part, I post T-Shirt that are new to very lightly worn, and if worn, it could be very hard to find.
New with Tags: Purchase from major department chain, never worn, tags remain on garment.
Like New: Probably never worn, but missing the store tag.
Excellent: Shows very little signs of wear, very little fading and/or little defects on the decals.
Great: Shows some signs of wear, some fading and minor defects on the graphics.
Good: Shows definite signs of wear, fading and defects on the decals.
Wearable: Shows a lot of wear like a lot of fading and/or highly distressed decals.
Vintage Inspired: A shirt in one of the conditions listed above but intentionally distressed as described.
If I use Paypal, when is payment due?
Within 2 hours of purchase. If I don't see that your payment has cleared Paypal and transferred funds, your purchase is void. I won't contact you asking if you intend to pay---so don't be surprised if you don't get the T-Shirt.
Why does it cost so much to send a T-Shirt overseas (the UK) etc??
In January 2014, the United States Postal Service raised rates and it went from about $10 to send a T-Shirt to over $16! OUTRAGEOUS! Trying to find different ways to send items, but know that I'm not just trying to make extra money.
If you buy more than 2 T-Shirts, let me find out how much it costs so I can get you the best price possible.
What if I pay with Aussie or Brit Paypal, but want the T-Shirt shipped to the US.
Sorry, but if you pay Paypal with currency that isn't USD (US Dollars) that shipment can only be shipped overseas to the address on the order form.
If you want the T-Shirt to be mailed to a US address, you can not use another country's money. ONLY US currency. Your money will be returned to you through Paypal if this happens.
