Any 'major' stains, flaws or defects found will be disclosed and or pictured. As much as possible we only list items that are in very good vintage condition with only the slightest signs of wear. Please pay attention to sizing before finalizing your purchase. Also, take into account that colors may vary from monitor to monitor. We will not give refunds or exchanges due to size issues or color discrepancies.

MINT: When an item is as perfect as when it was originally made. "Out of the box shinny". Absolutely zero signs of wear, with or without original tags or packaging.
NEAR MINT: Item shows only the slightest signs of light wear. Close to perfect.
EXCELLENT: Item show typical signs of light wear from occasional use.
VERY GOOD: An item has been used, but shows no 'major' flaws. Normal wear and age.
GOOD: Shows signs of daily use and might need repair.
FAIR: When an item shows multiple flaws and is only usable if repaired.

Vintage shoes should be treated delicately due to their age. The soles of some era shoes may become brittle and stiff through time. To avoid cracking or crumbling of the outer soles or heel tips, we strongly recommend you take your new vintage treasure to a cobbler/shoe maker if necessary for re-conditioning or to be resoled before use. Some era shoes are not recommended for wear, but rather for display or collecting only.

* All garment measurements are taken laying flat then doubled.
* As much as possible we only list items in VERY GOOD vintage condition or better.
* Take into account when buying vintage that there will be some signs of normal wear and age.

If you have questions about an item, convo us before finalizing your purchase.
