Adored Vintage Customer Support

About Our Products

Adored Vintage (AV for short) is an online lifestyle retail shop selling new/modern clothing and accessories for women as well as gifts and goods from apothecary, stationery, cards, and garden wares.

Our products are thoughtfully sourced and curated for romantic women who love the nostalgia of the past. We love the idea of less is more and we strive to offer timeless quality products at attainable and approachable price points. 

On occasion we still sell one of a kind vintage clothing and vintage accessories. Our shop name is Adored Vintage because we started out selling only vintage and antique clothing and wares.

As a retail shop, we source our products from small independent brands from all around the world. Most of the brands we carry are based out of the USA and a few select brands are based out of Montreal, Paris, and Madrid. Most of the clothing we carry in our retail shop that are made outside of the USA are made in China, India, Mexico, Vietnam, and on occasion Italy, Spain, and Portugal. These items will be noted as "Imported" in the product listing. We ask all of our vendors about their manufacturing and production practices and will not work with a brand if we feel that their business ethics do not align with ours.

*Please be mindful and thoughtful about biases you may have based on the country of origin of a garment. As a company whose current employees are primarily people who identify as AAPI, we just ask that your enquiries and comments on garments made in Asia are kind and sensitive.

Shipping & Delivery

ORDER FULFILLMENT

We try our very best to ship out your order within 3-4 business days (not including weekends and holidays). Please allow additional time for transit.

Shipping rates are calculated at checkout and are based on weight.

We ship all your orders via USPS. Orders are shipped in the order they are received throughout the work week. If part of your order contains an item that is back-ordered, we may ship items separately. You will be notified via email if we do this to get prior approval.

Delivery times may be affected by weather and other events outside of our control. Once a parcel leaves our office and is scanned by USPS, we no longer have any control of the whereabouts of the package. 

You can track your orders via the tracking number provided when your order is fulfilled when you login to your account.

LOST / MISSING / STOLEN PACKAGES

If your package’s tracking number indicates that your order was delivered but you are unable to locate your parcel, please be sure to check around your property/lobby/mailroom and reach out to neighbors in case someone has accepted the package on your behalf or it was misdelivered.

We advise waiting 1-2 business days to see if the package is redelivered by the carrier. If your package has still not been located or redelivered after 2 business days, please notify your local post office directly in order to file a claim. You can file a claim at the post office by providing your tracking information.

After you file a claim, you will receive a claim number from USPS. E-mail us at service@adoredvintage.com with your claim number and we can assist you further.

FREE SHIPPING

We offer Free Shipping on orders $100+ for delivery to addresses in the USA. Free Shipping will only be available if your final cart total at checkout is over $100. If you use store credit or a discount code and your cart total is no longer $100+, you will not qualify for Free Shipping.

International Shipping

***As of Friday, September 3, 2021, USPS temporarily suspended international mail services to Australia except for Express Mail International. This is due to COVID-19 related restrictions imposed in Australia for any incoming mail from overseas. If you live in Australia, we only currently offer Express Mail International. We will happily combine multiple orders placed during either a 2 week window or up to 4 lbs (whichever threshold is met first) and refund any overpayment of shipping fees during this period.

All orders shipping outside of the USA are shipped via USPS. Tracking is available though sometimes limited for select forms of shipment. In most cases parcels are tracked once it leaves the US borders and then tracked again when it enters your country for inspections.

IMPORT TAXES & VAT

Adored Vintage is not responsible for incurred VAT or Import Taxes for overseas and international deliveries that are imposed by recipients' country and border patrol. Adored Vintage does not charge for VAT or Import Taxes and we have no control over this. If VAT or Import taxes go unpaid and your order is returned to us, we can either ship the parcel back to you (additional shipping fees will apply) or treat the situation as a return.

Returns due to unpaid VAT and Import Taxes are subject to a 20% restock fee. If the parcel has an attempted delivery date of 2+ months from when order was delivered, order is subject to a 50% restock fee. It is buyer's responsibility to pay for any VAT or Import Taxes imposed by buyer's country and border patrol.

Our Return Policy

RETURNS FOR STORE CREDIT

We offer easy returns for items in new, unworn, unaltered, unwashed condition within 5 business days of delivery date of your order. A prepaid shipping label will be issued with your return for domestic returns. Please note the return shipping label cost will be deducted from your store credit.

If you are attempting to return an item(s) that was delivered past the 5 business days window, the option for a return will not be available to you.

INTERNATIONAL RETURNS

We're pleased to say that our return portal now works for our international customers! International returns are processed the same as domestic returns but please note that all return shipping fees are the responsibility of buyer. We are not able to provide a prepaid return shipping label as our carrier is the USPS and is not available outside of the United States. As such, no shipping cost will be deducted from your store credit.

*Please note Our Return Portal is currently still in BETA, if you are having any issues please contact us at service@adoredvintage.com.

STORE CREDIT "BANK"

Once we receive and process your return (please allow 4-6 business days for us to process), we will issue you your store credit. Your store credit never expires and is connected to your Adored Vintage customer account. If you make multiple returns, your store credit will always be applied to your account and act as a "store credit bank." If you have available store credit in your account, it will automatically apply in your shopping cart but you can choose to not use it at checkout if you want to "save up" your store credit.

Unfortunately, you cannot use your store credit code and a promotional discount code at the same time. This is a Shopify website policy that we do not have a work around for.

FINAL SALE

Products purchased during a storewide sale, noted as final sale in the product description, or purchased in our sale section or As-Is Charity Sale are all considered Final Sale and are not eligible for a return. 

ITEMS THAT CANNOT BE RETURNED

All accessories (bags, belts, jewelry, socks, etc - the exception is shoes), intimates (garments in our "Intimates" department such as bralettes, robes, sleepwear, etc), bodysuits, leotards, apothecary, sundries, and consumable items that expire cannot be returned.

Please be mindful of trying on shoes in a carpeted area. Shoes returned showing signs of wear will incur a 20% restock fee.

DEFECTIVE ITEMS

We carefully inspect each product before we sell it in our shop and before a garment ships out that garment has passed through a minimum of 2 inspection processes to ensure quality. In the off chance you receive a damaged/defective item, we ask you provide photos in our return portal.

***Normal wear and tear is considered "damage" and not defective, including but not limited to trying on garments that are too small therefore damaging/straining garment seams, stains from makeup, and torn seams/rips from trying on will not be accepted as they cannot be resold. Our garments go through a rigorous inspection when we receive them from our vendors (we check every single piece for flaws!) before we even photograph and prep it for sale.

Items that are sent back to us in damaged condition or have clearly been worn are subject to a minimum 50% restock fee and will be at our sole discretion.

CANCELLED ORDERS

We do not accept order cancellations so please shop responsibly. In certain special cases (if accidentally purchased the wrong size) we can swap out a size for you or color if you notify us before your order is fulfilled and if we have stock on hand. 

RESTOCK FEES & CANCELLED RETURNS

Returns postmarked 4-6 calendar days after prepaid return shipping label was issued are subject to a 10% restock fee.

Returns postmarked 7-14 calendar days after prepaid return shipping label was issued are subject to a 20% restock fee.

If a return that has not been shipped back to us after 14 calendar days of issue of return label, we will assume you changed your mind about the return and the sale is then considered final.

***Returns postmarked 14+ calendar days after prepaid returning shipping label was issued are subject to a 50% restock fee.

Approved returns that are returned using store credit are subject to a 10% restock fee on the new store credit issued. This helps our small business recover some of the fees that we incur for the initial return and the second return using the store credit.

UNAPPROVED RETURNS

When your return is approved, we issue a pre-paid shipping label for the item(s) to be returned. Your shipping label is calculated only for the weight of your item(s) being returned. If you attempt to return additional items from another order using the issued shipping label, there is a very high possibility your package will get rejected by USPS and rerouted back to you. In this case you will be unable to request the return again and the sale is then considered final.

GIFT CARDS

Gift cards cannot be cancelled or refunded for cash.

Request A Return

Please be sure you have read our return policy above as many questions can be answered there (it's the tab just above this one.)

Helpful Information About Our Sales & Promotions

Due to high volume of orders during storewide promotions, please expect an additional 2-5 business days for order fulfillment.

We cannot do price adjustments for orders placed before the sale or for orders placed after the sale.

To keep our order fulfillment system going as smoothly as possible, we will not be combining orders at this time. Orders will be shipped in the order they are received.

Most of our promotions require a coupon code to be entered at checkout. This code cannot be stacked/combined with other store codes or store credits. This is a Shopify rule that we do not have a workaround for. Promotional codes CAN BE COMBINED with GIFT CARDS.

Orders placed during a promotional sale/storewide sale are considered FINAL unless otherwise noted.
