Our Policies


It is of the utmost importance to me that you are satisfied with your shopping experience here. Please contact me with any questions you have. Merci!

We currently accept Stripe, PayPal and money orders.
Items purchased with a money order will be held for 5-10 days to allow time for the funds to clear.

Due to the vintage nature of the items from For the Love of France, all sales are final. Please be sure you love your treasure before purchasing it. I am very careful to describe and document all items accurately, but may occasionally miss something. I am happy to provide additional information or photographs upon request.

Payment should be made at the time of purchase but must be made within 48 hours as I ship as soon as payment is received. I normally go to the Post Office the day after the purchase has been made. If payment is not made in a timely fashion, I reserve the right to cancel the transaction and re-list the item. Please contact me if you are having problems or concerns about payment.

A sales tax rate of 8.75% is applied to all sales in the state of California.
