Welcome to Shop Idee Fixe!

Well its taken me some time to come to this decision, but due to the overflowing of my closets, as well as home, I had to do something and do it fast! You will notice prices are reflective of the recession, so now is the time to take advantage of some super great deals.

You can see my 100% eBay feedback under the seller name punkglamqueen. I am and always will be 100% honest -- if there is a blemish of any sort, you'll know about it. I can usually date vintage items within about 5 years, so you know you're getting the real thing when it comes to vintage and not "retro" or "vintage-inspired" unless the item is described as such.

I'm an ace at finding amazing deals on new and nearly new designer goods. Sometimes the prices are so good that I cant bear to leave them behind, hence the clutter amassed in my home! However, I opened this shop not only to de-clutter, but because when I had a retail business it brought me so much joy to be able to pass on a deal to someone who will give an item a good home. I love it when someone finds exactly what they wanted at a fair price, as I know the feeling when I find myself in the same situation! I firmly believe the shopping gods smile upon those of us who can pass on a bargain, as well as be honest sellers!

How it works:

I'll be posting items for sale, with pictures and descriptions. You will find all buying info within the post for the items available only through Shop Idee Fixe.

As always if you have any questions, please email me directly or leave a comment on the item you are interested in.

I only accept paypal for payment at this point, and when you have decided upon buying an item, I will contact you with my paypal address and also get your shipping info. I ship within two days of payment clearing.

The only returns I will accept are if an item arrives and was not as depicted. My items are well documented, so I can easily pull them up to see what you're talking about. Please contact me immediately if this is the case, with the reason why or any problems you may have discovered. I'm human, and I do make mistakes, although I try my hardest to depict items as honestly as possible. Sizing (if an item doesn't fit -- measurements are clearly marked) is not a valid return reason. If we ascertain there was indeed a flaw of some sort not noted in the item description or pictures, your money will be refunded when I receive the item back. All return postage fees are the buyer's responsibility.

I can't be responsible for what the post office does to your package, so if it arrives damaged by them, you must contact them to sort out the problem. I do suggest that if you are worried about a high price item arriving that you purchase insurance and delivery confirmation. This is not covered under our free shipping policy. Nor is delivery confirmation covered, so if you wish that service, please let us know so we can add it to your bill.

Essentially all sales are final. PLEASE read descriptions, sizes, and dimensions, as well as look at the pictures carefully! I'm not going to lie to you, if an item is marked a size 6 but fits like a 5, you'll know it when reading the descriptions.

Lastly, I also take consignments, email for details. (Hint: our consignment fees are dirt cheap!)

Thanks so much for this opportunity to offer goodies to all of you!
