* le fox vintage

* love at 2nd sight

hello. my name is vanessa and i am the keeper of this little shop. le fox vintage came about from a desire to create a shop that didn't sell just any vintage, but rather a thoughtfully edited and curated selection. i based the name on the two "foxiest women" i have ever known, my mom {mary fox ray...who was a flight attendant in the 70s} and my grandma agnes fox.

though i am new to etsy, i have dabbled in the world of vintage sales. all of my policies come from my experience as both a seller and buyer of vintage. all of the items in my store have been procured by yours truly, a very persnickity {i NEVER get to use that word} vintage shopper. i only buy things that i personally love, not just things that i think will sell. i truly have a passion for vintage…

***the sordid details***

* vintage = 20+ years in age, and usually used. your item likely had an amazing life the 1st time around. light general wear and minor imperfections consistent with age are normal, and to be expected. i like to think of them as beauty marks.
* all items are decribed to the best of my ability, including any known flaws {teeny tiny flaws may be missed, esp. in items described as "good", "fair", and "as found"}.
* please keep in mind that all monitors display colors differently
* i recommend knowing your measurements when buying vintage. tag sizes vary from brand to brand + era to era. i list *estimated* modern sizes to help compensate, but tag size variation is true to this day. please rely on measurements listed.
* little fyi~measurements listed are of the garment itself, not your measurements. i would advise you to find something in your closet who's fit you adore, and measure that. it should give you a good idea of what to look for.
* measurements are provided in inches.
* to display ideal fit, items larger than models are often clipped in back for photos. this will most definitely be noted.
* full skirted items may be modeled with a crinoline to display ideal silhouette. unless otherwise noted, crinolines/petticoats aren't included. also, unless noted, any accessories used as styling props are not included.
* some items are shortened and/or otherwise altered into more desireable styles.
* i try to launder machine washable garments prior to shipment. the exceptions to this are heavily embelished items, furs, antique textiles, and delicates such as silk and rayon. some items will be dry-cleaned, and some furs have been cleaned + conditioned. if you would prefer that your item not be laundered, just let me know.
* returns are accepted on a case by case basis. i want you to enjoy and love your item. if you don't, just let me know. i'm a very mellow lady who doesn't normally bite. :)
