About GrantandGarbo

Sales 2,226
On Etsy since 2014

The Fashion Matchmaker

GrantandGarbo started very simply as a way to find a new home for the beautiful and unique vintage pieces I have picked up randomly for years.

I love clothing! This doesn't make me unique, many people love clothing and there are thousands of them on Etsy alone. For years I thought everyone must have a bin in the corner stuffed full of beautiful clothing that neither fit nor were in a style that I might wear. Why wouldn't you just collect these pieces? So I did. I am fully aware that many people do collect clothing (this is why I have a business) but I didn't love that the pieces I acquired just stopped living once they found their way to my bin. Sometimes I gave these pieces to friends, and they loved them, but most items either did not fit people I knew or were not in a style they liked to wear. There are factors that come into play when you are buying vintage:
1. You love the piece
2. You fit the piece
3. Or you love the piece enough to make-it-work
I regularly picked up pieces under all of these categories and before I knew it my bin was several bins and I either had a shop or a hoarding problem!

GrantandGarb opened on Etsy in July of 2014 between contracts as a way to supplement my income. I have a degree in theatrical design and worked in live events, film and TV and as a fashion stylist at a local vintage clothing store. I continued to collect pieces and gradually became better at photographing and listings pieces. In 2018 I decided to start working towards making GrantandGarbo my main source of income. It has been a journey and a constant learning opportunity with so much more to come!

Frequently asked questions

Can I get this in a different color/size?

We do not make any of our items. All items are real vintage and usually we have only one in the size and color you see offered.

I am ordering multiple items the shipping cost seems high. Why?

When ordering multiple items the shipping cost calculator adds the value of each individual item but does not account for resizing or combined shipping cost. If we notice that you have overpaid for shipping we will issue a refund on shipping overages before we ship the complete order. You will see the refund on the packing slip included with your shipped package.

How do you measure your items?

All items are measured while lying flat. Chest/bust, waist and hip measurements are doubled to give the buyer the size around the body.
All measurements are given in inches (indicated with "). If you require additional measurements or want a confirmation please contact us.

Will this fit me?

An easy way to check if an item might fit you is to measure a similar piece of clothing that you already own and compare the listed measurements to those. Always make a note of how stretch might affect the fit. Always consider how you want an item to fit (tight, regular or oversize).

Do you offer Layaway?

Etsy offers a payment plan therefore we no longer offer layaway.

How long will it take to ship?

We use calculated shipping on Etsy. Just add the item to your cart and choose the type of shipping that you want. An estimated shipping time should come up. Please be aware that delays do occur and that we have no control of those delays.

As a general rule this is how long it takes:

In Canada: next day - 7 days
US Standard: 5 - 8 business days
US Express: 2 - 3 business days
International Air: 10 - 14 business days

All shipping is subject to customs and postal delays. The best way to know is to purchase tracked shipping and follow the progress of your package online.

Why doen't the tag size match the measurements or the listing?

Vintage sizes are not the same as modern sizes and we do not always know how an item has been stretched, shrunken or altered. We will always base the list (searchable size) on the measurements we take not the tag size. Please always read the measurements.
