Booth Details, Discounts, and Policies  Return to booth

Here is where sellers can list any catch-all policies about their booth. If any of this information is essential to the buying process, the seller will also mention that within their item description -- so don't sweat it if you don't make a habit of looking at the details for every booth!

Booth overview

I have recently discovered the beauty of vintage jewelry and am a “new-bee” collector with a particular desire for bracelets. For me the sparklier and the bigger the better. Throughout the past year I have discovered such designers as Weiss, Trifari and Sherman. I’m fascinated with the designs and colour combinations, as well as each designer’s quirks such as the use of certain shapes and sizes of rhinestones. As well, I wonder about each piece’s history – oh, if they could only talk!

Prairie Vintage wants to give you the best customer service possible. I value my customers and want to keep you coming back for more! Know that I strive to respond and ship promptly, pack carefully and describe and/or photograph my items honestly. Questions? Please ask.

Shipping policy

PLEASE NOTE: As of February 2014, Canada Post increased their postal rates. The slight increase in my shipping charges reflect this change in their rates. Thank you for your understanding of what is beyond my control.

I AM LOCATED IN CANADA, and ship at least three times a week via Canada Post. If it is urgent to receive a purchase ASAP please email me; I will try and accommodate your request, however there may be additional costs associated with expedited shipping. To my Canadian buyers: shipping costs are based on actual costs of mailing. I do not charge any handling fees, nor extra costs for materials used when packaging up your purchases. Overages paid in shipping costs in excess of $1 will be refunded.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: I happily ship to the U.S., Australia and The United Kingdom; and will do so as economically as possible – but understand shipping is often expensive with Canada Post, particularly when insurance and tracking is requested/involved. U.S., U.K. and AUSTRALIAN SHIPPING COSTS LISTED DO NOT INCLUDE TRACKING OR INSURANCE; these features can be arranged, however this will add an additional $10 for U.S. destinations and $28 for destinations in Australia and The United Kingdom to the shipping costs.

To my American buyers: I use three shipping rates to The States. The cost of shipping on each item is reflective of its size, weight and value, and type of packaging that I use to package each particular item. Larger, heavier pieces of jewelery ship for $7.80 based on Canada Post’s requirements; smaller, lighter items that meet certain Canada Post specifications can be shipped for $3.80 – neither options include tracking or insurance. More valuable pieces in my store will include tracking and insurance in the shipping costs listed. Also, shipping time is USUALLY TWO WEEKS to the United States from Canada, as the shipping cost in my listings is for regular Airmail. However, due to things beyond my control with Canada Post and USPS, delivery CAN take as long as 4 to 6 weeks from the shipping date. Express shipping (4 to 6 business days for arrival) is available at an additional $18 to the regular shipping costs listed; please email to upgrade to this shipping method.

I cannot be responsible for lost international packages.

If you live outside of Canada, the United States, The United Kingdom or Australia and wish to purchase an item in my store, please email me. I do ship to other countries provided the appropriate shipping method and associated cost is agreed upon.

I ask that all my international customers (including American buyers) allow at least six weeks for delivery as there are occasional delays in customs, and other factors that could stall a smooth and prompt delivery.

Return policy

I will make refunds in VERY RARE circumstances. Please carefully read the item description and look at the photos before making your purchase. I am selling vintage items, which in most cases means used, or at the very least, aged, thus, less than perfect. Please be reasonable with me and I’ll be reasonable with you.
Questions? Please ask.

The condition and age of the the jewelry listed will vary and most will need cleaning of some sort. I will sincerely attempt to note any flaws or missing stones etc. but there is always a chance I may overlook a small detail. I do my best to describe everything honestly and by purchasing you are agreeing to the fact that all your questions have been answered to your satisfaction. I want this to be an enjoyable experience for both of us. Please email me if you have questions or need additional pictures of a certain item before you purchase. I describe my items as I see them so please, ask questions. ALL ITEMS ARE SOLD AS IS.

Miscellaneous details

Note: International customers are responsible for duties, taxes, and other fees incurred on international packages. I complete customs documents honestly showing the item as merchandise with the item price as the value.
