About Kitsch & Couture
Our Service PledgeCustomer satisfaction is our primary goal. We respond to all orders within 24 hours and we guarantee the authenticity of our items. We take great pride in the careful packaging of our timeless treasures to ensure a safe delivery to their new home.
International shipping is available with pre-approval of the item to be purchased. If you are located outside of the US, please contact us via email for a shipping quote. Our shop does not allow international orders to complete checkout without prior approval.
About UsWe offer antiques and vintage from the 19th & 20th Century with prices to accommodate any budget.
You are welcome to visit us by appointment at our workshop, Blue Studio, located in Charlotte, NC. We are always in search of new and exciting items to purchase and we also accept small items on consignment (sorry, no furniture or glass).
We hope you enjoy browsing our selection of art, collectibles, books, jewelry, clothing, and housewares. We especially love women's fashion and jewelry from the roaring '20s, psychedelic '60s, and bohemian '70s. We take great pride in hand-selecting items that are of excellent quality and in gift-giving condition.
We have been collecting unique items from all over the world for over 25 years. Our items are procured from art galleries, estates sales, flea markets, auctions, private collections and dusty attics. We encourage you to visit our shop frequently as we continue to add items on a regular basis.
We also have another shop, Black Widow Vintiques, right here on Ruby Lane. Take a stroll on the darker side...it's a great shop for Victorian, gothic, and all bewitching vintage. Combined shipping from both shops is available.
We offer International Shipping, Layaway, and Professional Gift Wrap services upon request. An additional fee may be involved.
International shipping is determined based on the size of the item and where it is being shipped. Most international orders are accepted, and please feel free to inquire if you see an item of interest.
Layaway is available with a nonrefundable deposit of 1/3 the purchase price. The second payment of 1/3 the purchase price is due within 30 days of the initial purchase. The final payment is due within 90 days of the initial purchase date. (Please note, the initial deposit is nonrefundable ~ we are required to do this in order to cover our fees associated with shop maintenance and advertising).
The majority of our items will ship to you in acid-free, white tissue, possibly a decorative box, and hand-tied with a bow, at NO COST. If your item arrives without tissue, it is because the item is too large and/or bulky.
All items are carefully packaged in appropriate materials (ie. bubble wrap, styrofoam, etc.) for a safe delivery to your destination.
You can also save time with our convenient, professional gift wrap services. We use high quality, premium wrapping paper, coordinating decorations and supplies. Your choice of a Special Occasion or Holiday card is also included. Please note this service charges an additional $5.00 fee.
Our available Special Occasion and Holiday cards include the following: (1) Happy Birthday (2) Thank You (3) Get Well Soon (4) Happy Anniversary (5) Congratulations (6) Happy Valentine's Day (7) Happy Easter (8) Happy Mother's Day (9) Happy Halloween (10) Happy Thanksgiving (11) Merry Christmas and (12) Happy New Year.
All cards are commercial-grade (not handmade), unisex and age-neutral. A personalized inscription is optional and we are happy to accommodate any special requests.

** "Just wanted to let you know that the bracelet arrived. It is very pretty. I appreciate your accuracy in describing measurements and condition. It is so reassuring to actually get what you are expecting rather than receiving something with all of these "little things" that the seller fails to mention and then disclaims that they are not experts in describing, etc. Anyway, enough ranting about the past. Thanks for your accuracy and honesty." ~~Emily
