Returns and exchange details

✩ Items are sold on an "AS IS" basis and I do not accept refunds or offer exchanges or store credit, so please make sure that you check all measurements and sizing carefully. All sales are considered FINAL.

✩ VINTAGE MEANS VINTAGE
All items are vintage unless otherwise stated so please do not expect them to be in NEW condition. Vintage items are normally more than 50 years old and will almost always show some degree of wear. That being said, I am committed to providing quality vintage garments. I inspect all items carefully and list any imperfections I find. If I miss something small, I do apologise.

Garments are measured carefully and I give my best estimate in todays' sizing. Sometimes items can be pinned to fit my model so please ENSURE you refer to my measurements for final sizing information. In the extreme case of misrepresentation (and I have no intention of misrepresenting any item, at any time), I will offer you a refund. The shipping costs are non-refundable.

If you have any queries at all please email me before the auction ends and I will be happy to help in any way.

✩ RESERVATIONS:

I will reserve items for up to 24 hours. Please do not make a reservation if you are not serious about purchasing the item.
