For the Love of MCM Vintage's Effort Towards Sustainability: 

  • Our shop has a focus on sustainability and minimizing our carbon footprint by offering vintage, reusing packing material and shipping boxes when possible.
  • Some items ship in EcoEnclose plastic bags which have 2 strips of adhesive so the bag when opened gently along the dotted lines can be reused to ship a similar sized item in. These bags are made with 100% recycled content and 50% post consumer content and can be recycled in thin film plastic bins. They are made in the USA.
  • Items when possible are wrapped in brown kraft paper tied with cotton twine and dried lavender in domestic US shipments. Please add a note if you do not wish for the item to be Kraft paper tied.  The paper is recyclable.
  • We encourage reuse of our plastic bags, cardboard boxes and other packing material.
  • Please keep children away from string and plastic bags.
  • To prevent damage from elements in shipping we do utilize a plastic product as an added safeguard to ensure your item arrives to you just as it left the shop.
  • When possible we use items given to us to further prevent unnecessary waste.

Shipping Policy: 

  • Items ship USPS first class package for items under 1 pound and usually Priority for items over 1 pound for Domestic US buyers
  • Buyers have option to upgrade shipping at buyers expense
  • If an item comes back marked as unclaimed for any reason, we are not responsible for any shipping fees to get the item to the buyer again. The item will be relisted in the shop without refund unless the buyer contacts us asking for the item to be reshipped at the buyer’s expense.

Damaged Package Policy: 

  • If your package is damaged upon arrival do not open it until you have taken pictures from all angles including a picture of the full package in view.  
  • Once images are taken, open package gently to determine if the item is damaged.
  • Take picture of open package and content undisturbed prior to removing item
  • Remove item from package gently with care to determine if the item is damaged being careful with items that could be broken with sharp edges.
  • If item is damaged, take images from all angles to show damage and also a picture where the entire item is clearly in view.
  • Please contact us immediately with the photos and details of damage to package and item so we can start the claims process.
  • I will send a return label so you can ship the item back to me and the claims process can begin
  • Refunds will be issued after the item is received back to the shop after inspection.  
  • Detailed images and description of damage is necessary and important as we are a micro business unable to absorb costs in comparison to a large online retailer.


  • We do not arrange shipping for furniture pieces unless noted in item description.  We can work with any shipper you choose for the furniture pieces we don't arrange shipping for.  
  • For obtaining a shipping quote, use the pickup address 112 North 3rd St., Ironton, OH, 45638.  The weight and dimensions will be listed in the item description.
