Returns and exchange details
All sales are final. Guermantes Vintage does not accept returns or exchanges. If you feel an item has been grossly misrepresented, please message me.

Please keep in mind that all items are vintage, used, and sold AS IS. I describe items to the best of my ability. Some very very minor flaws may not be noted. If you would like additional details or photos of any of my listed items please ask before purchasing. Please keep in mind that colors may vary based on computer monitor.

I cannot predict how a vintage item will wear and will not accept returns if an item becomes damaged after it has been received by the buyer. This applies especially to antique items, which can be especially delicate and prone to breakage. I try to estimate the wearability of my older items but cannot guarantee this. Antique silk should be considered especially delicate.

I do not allow refunds or returns based on size so please check measurements carefully and ask all questions before purchasing. Items may be pinned to fit dress form.

Additional policies

RESERVES:
If you would like to reserve an item, please contact me. Keep in mind that by reserving an item you commit to buying that item. A non-refundable deposit may be required for holds.

A NOTE ON CLEANING:
I consider all pieces sold here to be artifacts of an earlier time. As such I work to preserve and document them for future generations as best I can. I personally take a conservator's approach to the preservation of these textiles and recommend that they be cleaned and laundered as infrequently as possible.

FAQs

Layaway is available for all items. Please contact me to set up a payment plan.

All layaway payments are nonrefundable, and if a payment is late layaway may be terminated, or a daily late fee applied.
For best fit I recommend comparing measurements given to those of a similarly cut garment you own that fits you well.

1920s items should fit loosely. In general I recommend at least 2" of wiggle room between your measurements and dress measurements.

I do not allow refunds or returns based on size so please check measurements carefully and ask all questions before purchasing. Items may be pinned to fit dress form.
