Lovely dress; exactly as described. :) It's a bit tight on me, but that's only because I gained some weight since ordering it. It's great motivation to slim down quickly so I can wear it asap!

The family curator
With an interest in fashion and vintage up-cycling from a very early age, April became the go-to contact in an extended family as the person to whom you could donate a treasure without then amassing the guilt of having given away something of historic or cultural value -- the handmade wool suit, the 1940's hat that was too unusual and rare for the salvation army, the costume jewelry found in the attic, the antique books, those wonderful 18th C nurse's boots, the hippie dress that Carol wore when she saw the Dalai Lama, that wonderful fur from the estate sale that was such a gorgeous steal ...
As a career in fashion and photography followed, so did the more active hunting for the perfect antiques. The mostly vintage momentos which made for marvelous styling props, gorgeous interior decorating and fabulous glamorous evenings.
But life took a turn and April became a mommy. All those Vintage Treasures, with all their wonderful energy, memories and beauty to the beholder and user, were left unused, unappreciated and almost forgotten... Until April had a revelation. These wonderful items should be used and enjoyed by those who could truly appreciate their unique value, their one-of-a-kind specialness, their unspoken but deeply felt stories.
Hence the birth of Antoinette Anne, April's Vintage Treasures.

UPS can also be custom arranged and a rate will be calculated based on order.
International Shipping - this can easily be arranged. My policy is to charge a minimal service fee for the additional time required for international paperwork and posting in person and the maximum estimated rate as provided by the USPS based on package dimensions, weight and destination country. Then, when actual shipping and insurance costs (if any) are determined upon completion of mailing, any difference in cost (if over $3) will be refunded to the purchaser. (Please read customer reviews - this method has been quite satisfactory!)
