About Chantilly Dreams Treasures  by  CD
Chantilly Dreams treasures are one of a kind antique or vintage items. Since they are not new, please expect that there will be signs of gentle use or wear, commensurate with age.  They will arrive in beautiful, gift giving condition.  All textile items will ship with an organic lavender sachet which smells lovely, and naturally protects against moths (except international orders due to customs restrictions).  Additionally, textiles will arrive wrapped in acid free, pH neutral tissue paper, which is how they are best stored according to the Smithsonian Museum Textile Experts.  Vintage sewing patterns will arrive in an acid-free resealable sleeve. We hope you enjoy your treasures.

Returns  by  CD

Chantilly Dreams wants you to be delighted with the treasures you purchase from our boutique. Please keep in mind that antique and vintage items are not new, and therefore will show signs of their use and history, which many collectors feel add to their authenticity and charm. Most are handmade, previously used and may vary slightly. The small imperfections which may be inherent will not affect their beauty or use. We make every effort to describe items accurately. Please carefully review the descriptions and photos of pieces before making your purchase. We do not sell upon approval.

Louise Green designer hats, and other custom items, are non-refundable. Store credit will be issued for any authorized returns of custom items. Similarly, vintage sewing patterns, due to their potential for being copied, are not returnable. 

We have a "no quibble” policy for exchanges and returns on footwear, provided they are returned to us in their original condition and packaging, unworn, with no marks or odors, within seven days of the RMA issue. Exchanges on footwear for a different size will not incur a restocking fee.  Footwear is returnable, but will result in an exchange or a store credit, whichever you prefer.  Returns will be processed once the item is inspected and found to be unworn.

On the rare occasion a return is unavoidable, please contact us within 48 hours and an RMA (return merchandise authorization) number will be issued. Returns will not be accepted without this number. Please be aware that all returns for refund are subject to a 30% restocking fee, and return shipping fees are the responsibility of the customer. Refunds will be issued once the returned item is inspected and found to be satisfactory.

Returned items must be received in exactly the same condition as they were at the time of purchase, and must be returned within seven days of the RMA issue. Returns must be sent Priority Insured Mail.
