Frequently Asked Questions

What is your layaway plan?

Layaway plans are a way to pay for purchases in installments as a service to our customers. You can pick out the item(s) that you want to purchase ($75.00 minimum) & make payments. A 20% down payment is required. Down payments and monthly installments are agreed between the customer and Vintage Summers Ltd. on an individual basis.
The customer agrees to make weekly, bi-weekly or monthly installment payments over a 30, 60 or 90 days plan. The merchant holds the items so that others can't purchase them, but the items won't be shipped until the purchase is paid in full. If the customer fails to make payments on time or cancels the layaway plan, the merchandise is returned to inventory and the customer forfeits all payments to date.
