Hey there! Thank you for shopping with us!
Shipping Policies
All orders are shipped within 1-2 days of purchase via USPS priority mail. We do our best to get it to you fast. We can't wait for our packages either! A notification email will be sent with purchase and when the order has shipped, tracking is available on request. Once an item has been shipped, Shop Journal is not responsible for packages lost or damaged in transit. Domestic shipping is $7 flat rate and up, depending if added insurance is needed for a high cost item, or if it's a large order that requires a box.
International is $34 and up depending on the same above criteria. 

We don't do signature confirmation, or overnight options. Rushed shipments are per request, and we will adjust shipping cost accordingly. Please email us prior to purchase and we will try our best to accommodate you!

Domestic packages are sent Flat Rate Priority mail and typically arrive in 2-3 days once in transit. We generally ship next day. Once items leave our hand with the carrier we aren't responsible for lost or stolen packages.
International orders typically take around 10 days, but are not our responsibility once they leave our hands. Any incurred fees from customs are not our responsibility. 

A few notes about sizing
Vintage sizing is unreliable, and sizes vary from decade to decade, per designer, handmade vs factory made etc. We think measurements is the safest bet, so we provide those as well as modern general letter sizing equivalents. We welcome all inquiries and want you to be 100% thrilled with your purchase. 
*We measure lying flat. Under arms, waist, hips and any leg or arm openings are all doubled in measurement.
Condition & care
Most all of our items are pre-loved unless otherwise noted as dead-stock. Natural wear comes with time, but all flaws will be noted within the listing. Otherwise all items are all in great vintage condition. We steam all our pieces, but do not wash items due to the gentle nature and fragility of some. All vintage garments are listed AS IS. It's very important to us that our customers are satisfied with their pieces, so please contact us with any questions you have, as refunds aren't typically issued. We appreciate you and value you!!<3
