All of my vintage items are used, one of a kind pieces. Many are decades old and have lived full lives before finding their way to me. I do my best to describe my items in as much detail as possible including any and all flaws I see. All of my items are sold as is. I have a no return policy but if you receive your item and it has been dramatically misrepresented please contact me and we will work together to find a resolution. However, a complaint of "it is smaller/bigger than I thought it would be." is not grounds for a return. You are responsible for reading the full description of the item, including the measurements. Please feel free to ask for additional pictures, I am happy to provide that or any additional information/measurements you may need to make your decision.
I use USPS Priority Mail for most items shipped in the US; USPS First Class may be used for smaller items like jewelry and scarves.
I am happy to ship internationally! I use USPS First Class International shipping for most items, but am happy to ship USPS Priority or USPS Express Mail--just ask for costs. Also note that First Class International mail has weight (up to 4 pounds) and size restrictions that may require packages being sent via USPS Priority.
Buyers outside the US, please note that customs forms must be filled out accurately and honestly. Please be aware of customs laws and duties in your country before importing. Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges, and are the buyer’s responsibility.

These charges are normally collected by the delivering freight (shipping) company or when you pick the item up.

Additional return information
Returns are considered on a case by case basis with a 15% restocking fee. Return shipping is at your cost. ***Please be aware that I do not accept returns for sizing or change of heart. Measurements and sizing are provided and it is your responsibility to verify your measurements against the measurements of the garment. If you have any questions at all about measuring or sizing please contact me before purchasing.***
When purchasing clothing, hats, or shoes please carefully verify your own measurements. Most vintage clothing does not have a size on it so you will need to get out your tape measure. Even vintage items that do have sizes need to ave measurements verified. A 1920s size 12 is NOT the same as a modern size 12. Even modern sizing is not consistent among different brands. The tape measure is your friend, not your enemy!
Note that the measurements given are the measurements of the *garment*, not of the person who will wear it. It is always important to make sure to allow a couple inches for comfortable fit, as straining against vintage fabric is not a good idea (unless it is a fabric with a fair amount of stretch). In other words, If the waist measurement given is 28", your waist should measure 25"-26" for the garment to fit you comfortably.
A helpful hint for determining whether a vintage item will fit you is to compare the measurements given with that of a similar garment that does fit you.
Most of the items I currently sell are vintage USED items. This means they have had a life of their own before they came to me. I do my very best to describe any and all flaws or damage that I can find. I am not a smoker and I do not have pets in my shop but I cannot guarantee what situations these items come from. I try to avoid any items that smell of smoke. Most of my stock comes from estate sales and auctions.
I do sell some custom made items including corsets, hats, and vintage clothing reproductions. I will always state in my description which items have been custom created.
