Additional Policies and FAQs

i have a very large inventory of beautiful and affordable vintage bridal gowns from the 1920's to the 1990's. i will be posting the dresses as time allows. however, if you are looking for a particular gown please email the style you desire as well as your measurements. i will be happy to send you photographs and prices.

i also have a large inventory of blue jean cut off shorts in all sizes....including high and low waist. most of the shorts are vintage levis but i also have designer shorts. i have personally re-purposed long jeans to shorts by carefully cutting, hand fraying, often distressing and sometimes tie dyeing. most all shorts are cut long enough so that they can be worn cuffed or un-cuffed. if interested, please email the following and i will find you the perfect pair:
1. waist / jean size in inches... ie. 26, 27, 28, etc
2. preference in high waist, low waist, medium rise
3. preference in no distressing, lightly distressed, very distressed
4. preference in wash. light, medium, dark

shorts are priced based on my cost and the amount of work involved... : )
