We ship all items within the U.S. and internationally. Find your state or country in the drop-down box where it says United States. All locations that we ship to will be shown under there.
International customers please note: we are not responsible for any VAT or other fees that the customer must pay when receiving shipments into your country. It is your responsibility as a citizen to know your country's taxes on imports. All purchases are reported as such for the actual purchase price.
All packages are shipped via USPS within 3-5 business days. We will ship to the address listed on your receipt. If you would like your package shipped to an alternate address be sure to list the address in the "notes to seller" section.


We accept payment through Paypal, though you don't have to have a Paypal account to use this quick, easy and secure payment method. We also accept direct checkout and Etsy Gift Cards for purchases. All orders not paid for within 3 business days will be cancelled.

Returns & exchanges

We hope that you will be very happy with your purchase. Hand-knit items with a serious flaw will be replaced or payment refunded. We will refund purchase price for vintage items that do not fit, if they are returned to us in their original condition. We list many measurements and are willing to take additional ones as needed. Please refer to these measurements, rather than the size label, as sizing standards have changed dramatically in the last 50 years. Items must be in their original condition and returned within 5 days of receipt. Sorry, shipping charges cannot be refunded, unless the item arrives to the buyer, not as described, incorrectly described, or with a flaw that we did not realize was there.

Additional policies

We are sometimes willing to reserve an item for a few days, if the customer needs to wait for a paycheck, or has another extenuating circumstance. Convo us with your concern and we will reserve the item for you. After 5 days, we usually contact the purchaser to remind that the item is waiting for purchase. After 7 days without a purchase, we will return the listing to its original form.
