Shop with confidence! I will combine shipping, and I do accept returns.

This is a vintage item, meaning used (unless otherwise noted) – so it probably won’t be perfect…but that’s what makes it special! It has been used and enjoyed by someone in the past. Reusing vintage wares connects us with older generations of manufacturers, artisans, and consumers. Pretty sweet! I take great care in photographing and describing the condition of each item to give the buyer an accurate understanding of each piece. Please, please look carefully at the photos and description, and feel free to ask questions and request further images.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: PLEASE be aware of the differences between Priority Mail International and USPS International First Class. It matters!
Priority Mail International: faster, more expensive, includes package tracking.
USPS International First Class: cheaper, slower, NO package tracking.

Feel free to contact me with any questions!


FAQs

I try hard to list item condition clearly and specifically. Please remember that these items are all vintage, and unless stated otherwise are in used condition. They will not be perfect because of their age...but that's the beauty of history! If you are unsatisfied with your item when you open it, please contact me. I want you to be happy with your purchase, and I will accept returns.

I do not sell anything that smells gross or is dirty to the touch. These being vintage items, however, occasionally there will be an exception for something that looks like it needs to be cleaned but could be damaged by cleaning. A few possible examples would be a fragile fabric with a stain, vintage paper, or something that has accumulated dust over the years in places I cannot reach without dismantling it. Anything that is possible for me to clean safely, without changing the item in any way or deteriorating its value, I will clean. And again, no mildew, smoke, or other nasty odors accompany my pieces!

I am happy to wrap your purchase and/or include a note if you're giving it as a gift. Just let me know what you'd like.

As with all vintage items, careful handling is recommended. Hand washing in gentle soap, air drying, etc. are the best ways to preserve vintage fabric. There are resources available for tips on cleaning and preserving vintage items. If you have questions, please ask me and I'd be happy to share what information I have.

I measure my items with a tape measure and do not assign modern sizes, because so much of what was manufactured in the past is custom made and does not fit neatly into a numerical size. Add that to the "glamour sizing" of today's clothes and there isn't a reliable way to know for sure what modern size a vintage item would be. If you aren't sure about how something might fit, please let me know and I'll help any way I can.

If you want it faster, don't mind spending more, and need package tracking, choose Priority Mail International. If you prefer a cheaper price, don't mind waiting longer, and aren't concerned about tracking your order, then choose International First Class.
