Returns & exchanges

Please notify me on the day you receive your item it you have a problem with your purchase.

Because most of my inventory is clothing, I do not accept returns because an item doesn't fit. I carefully post measurements so you can check to be sure the garment will work. I will refund if I've made an error.

I strongly suggest you ask me to purchase shipping insurance on breakables. I do pack very carefully and well, but I cannot be responsible for breakable items once they leave my care.

Additional policies

I have a huge inventory of all kinds of vintage items, especially vintage clothing and accessories. If you are looking for anything at all, please ask.

I will sell wholesale lots....what do you want? Just ask.
