When you buy from me, you can be assured that you are getting a clean, perhaps even ironed, outfit that has been accurately and thoroughly described...So I KNOW you'll be very happy!

THE VINTAGE PLEDGE:
Everything that I have tagged as vintage in my shop is at least twenty years old or older. I stake my reputation on it.
