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.
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.
