We generally only ship within the continental United States. If you are located elsewhere, please email us before making a purchase and we will do our best to accommodate you when possible.
All shipments require an adult signature. We can hold your package as long as needed to ensure delivery on a day that is convenient to you. Typically, delivery services will attempt delivery to an adult in person at least twice, and if unable to deliver they will leave the package at the facility for a number of days before returning to us.
Care of Your Vintage Barware
Hand wash your barware with mild soap and warm water, using a soft cloth. Avoid anything abrasive and drastic temperature changes while washing, as this can cause de-lamination of the embellishments on your glassware. Dry with a soft cloth.
Care of Your Vintage Jewelry
Most jewelry we sell is costume jewelry, and therefore may require a bit more care. Gold items may be gold plate, gold filled, or gold vermeil. Silver or white gold items may be silver, rhodium, or white gold, plated. These finishes can wear down over time, this is normal and expected. To preserve the finish for as long as possible, avoid getting your jewelry wet or exposing it to hairsprays, perfumes, lotions, etc.
Most stones in costume jewelry are made of paste, acrylic, or semi-precious stones. To best care for them, avoid getting them wet. Wipe with a damp cloth or bush to clean.
A special note about CUFF bracelets. Cuff bracelets are not meant to fit tightly, nor are they made to be bent repeatedly to fit your wrist. Doing so will weaken the metal and will eventually break the bracelet. We cannot accept responsibility for repair of a cuff that has been repeatedly bent.
A special note about our Memento Mori pieces: Items made with a natural bone skull WILL develop a patina over time. We, and our vendor for these items, accept no responsibility for any changes the natural bone pieces undergo in the course of your ownership of them. The natural bone will typically darken a bit over time and with wear. You can help maintain it’s bright appearance by avoiding handling the bone as much as possible (skin oils will definitely cause the bone to darken more quickly.) Please apply lotions, makeup, hairspray, and perfumes BEFORE putting on your Memento Mori jewelry; and remove the jewelry before showering, sleeping, swimming, and exercising.
Selling Your Items, Appraisals, Etc.
We do not purchase from the general public; we suggest trying a re-sale shop in your area or looking into one of the many online venues for selling vintage items. We are unable to appraise or repair items not purchased from our store.
