FAQs

A vintage item is anything that is more than 20 years old. As such, all vintage items have been owned by someone else first. This means they are not in new condition. Vintage items are imperfect by nature. I strive to list only items in this shop that are in tip-top condition, but it's important to understand that a vintage item in flawless condition is wonderful but rare. It's not unusual to purchase an item with minor flaws, such as a pulled thread, a loose seam, light stains, or heel tips that need replacing. I scrutinize items (I literally go over them with a magnifying glass) and describe flaws, if any, in detail. Due to the fragile nature of vintage merchandise, no guarantees about durability can be given.

I ship within 48 business hours of purchase. 1st Class Mail (USA) takes about 4-7 days. Priority Mail (USA) takes about 2-4 days. Priority Mail Express (USA) takes about 1-2 days International Orders: Up to 2 Months Items valued at $1000 or more will be sent via Fed Ex. Additional shipping charges may apply. Please note that delivery time from the shop to your home is the responsibility of the USPS, and can vary depending on location, time of year, and seasonal conditions. Once the item leaves my hands, I have NO CONTROL over actual delivery time. If you're mad at the slow Postal Service, give them a bad review, not me!

Yes. Items that are high value, fragile, or irreplaceable I ship International Priority Mail Only because of the high number of 1st-class parcels that have been lost or damaged once they leave the United States. When that happens I must give a refund to the buyer as well as absorb fees and loss of merchandise. International Priority Mail is SAFER AND FASTER. If you prefer 1st class international mail and that option isn't provided, it means I will only ship that item Priority Mail. If you want it shipped 1st class anyway, you must convo me and state that you will incur all risks associated with 1st-class mail, which means you will not get a refund for ANY reason including lost-in-transit and/or total damage/loss.

One word: QUALITY. There's a reason vintage items are still around- most vintage items were made in the USA, by union members, and the high standards and remarkable skill that went in to making these things still lives and breathes in the clothes, jewelry, shoes, and home decor of the past. When you buy vintage, you are buying something that has had a long life because it's stood the test of time, both in craftsmanship and style. Even with their sometimes fragile nature, most vintage items have decades of life left in them. You can't say that about much of anything else these days.

Never buy based on Size Alone! Always compare the measurements given to a garment you already own that fits you well. Use the guide below: Clothing: With a measuring tape, measure: Shoulder Seam to Shoulder Seam Bust: Armpit to Armpit (then Double it for women) Waist: Measure around the interior of the waistband Length: Top Seam to Hem Hips: Seam to Seam across widest part of the rear, then double Inseam: Crotch to Hem measured on inside seam Front Rise: Crotch to front waistband Back Rise: Crotch to back waistband SHOES Length: Toe to Heel measured on the inside of the shoe Ball of Foot: Straight across the widest part of shoe on outside Heel: Straight down Back of Heel

1) READ THE DESCRIPTION IN FULL. Note the stated color, which may look different on your computer monitor. 2) Look at photos carefully. Zoom in. 3) When buying clothes or shoes, compare the measurements given against similar items you already own that fit you well. NEVER buy based on size alone. Vintage sizes are different than contemporary sizes. 4) Make sure you understand the CONDITION of the item before you buy. 5) Ask questions BEFORE you buy. I do accept returns on most items but all shipping charges are the buyer's responsibility. Returns are for the purchase price only minus a 20% restocking fee. 6) Read the shop's policies.

I do not put items on reserve. I WILL do a layaway plan with a 30% Non-Refundable Deposit, payable upon agreement of the plan, and full payment within 2 weeks. Failure to pay the deposit upon agreement of the plan or the balance due by the agreed upon date will result in forfeiture of the layaway plan and the deposit, and the item will be re-listed at full price. Convo me if you need a layaway plan.

Returns accepted on everything EXCEPT jewelry, intimate lingerie, crystal/china, and some antique or fragile items. Buyer responsible for ALL shipping costs.
