Additional Policies and FAQs

All of my garments and accessories are carefully inspected with caring eyes and rated as mint, near mint, excellent, very good and good. I do my best to mention all garment and accessory details, including flaws, stains or holes, but sometimes minor issues go unnoticed and may be recognized as part of the vintage garment's history. Items are sold as-is.
I am happy to answer any additional questions on sizing, garment construction and fabric. I care about my clients and my garments and want to ensure a positive experience.

All garments are laid flat to measure and are listed in inches. MEASURE yourself as well as your own clothing when comparing vintage clothing to ensure a perfect fit. I try to show as accurately as possible the colour of each garment, but colour may vary due to monitor display.
