Welcome to Klassy Klassics. Featuring Vintage Apparel and Accessories. Shop items include: Vintage Dresses, Prom Dresses, Wedding Dress, Bridesmaids Dresses, Evening Gowns, Suits, Coats, Furs, Jackets, Separates, Swimwear, Shoes, Handbags, Hats, Eyewear, Jewelry and Accessories.

All items are handpicked by me from estate sales, flea markets and shops around Northern California. I have a variety so it doesn't matter if you are a skinny mini or voluptuous and curvy.

All my items are in good condition and are sold as is. If a garment or item has a flaw, I will do my best to state the flaw in the description. I purchase only the items that I would personally wear and use and that I truly like. Please remember that these items are 20+ years old and due to age and use there will always be some imperfection. Please keep in mind that all items have been used and worn and loved. Items have not been dry cleaned unless specified in the listing. I always suggest dry cleaning not only to clean and freshen but to sanitize, making the item yours. Please keep this in mind when purchasing clothing.

Klassy Klassics focuses on ALL things vintage. So, if you love Vintage clothing, Klassic pieces from yesterday..... you might find that extra special treasure your closet is missing.

I love selling on etsy so much that I opened another little etsy shop called Sweet Drawers, Wickedly Sweet Lingerie. Sweet Drawers focuses on lingerie and boudoir related items. If you need a bridal shower gift this the perfect place to look! Happy hunting.

Please read my shop policies before making a purchase! All vintage items are sold in "as is" condition. Please check all measurements before purchasing and ask as many questions as needed as I DO NOT issue refunds unless I have grossly misrepresented something.

Everyone has different ideas about rating a vintage item, here's mine:
Mint: Perfect, rare, never worn.
Excellent: Maybe a minor flaw, intent of garment not compromised. Very very wearable.
Very Good: Noted minor flaws, easily repairable, very wearable.
Good: Noted flaws, repairable, wearable with care.
Fair: Numerous flaws, some major, probably wearable with repairs.
As found: Damaged and sold as is for costume or reproduction.

Thank you!

About

Vintage Clothing

Hi,

I believe all of us have a passion in life...something that keeps us going, something that is thrilling and exciting. For me, it has always been vintage. I can't remember a time when it hasn't consumed my thoughts. I dream about it, really I do. Last night I had a dream about finding some purses. I wasn't happy to wake up and realize it was just a dream. Where is that store???? Where are those purses? I am always looking forward to the next outing or opportunity to hunt. I love the hunt. I love going to the flea market. I love rummaging through huge piles of clothes or going through boxes. That great designer piece may be in the next pile, lol. Oscar, where are you? There is absolutely nothing better than finding a rare designer piece.

Most of all I love the one-of-a-kind feel you get when wearing vintage. I love knowing that I can dress the way I want and not look like a replica of everyone else. You see that everywhere you go these days. Go sit at the mall, go to the high school or college and you'll see everyone is dressed the same...boring! What happened to style? They think they are making a statement and really the only statement they are making is that they are a follower...a fashion victim of the mall. Fashion is a place where you can really show the world who you are. You can be Stevie Nicks one day and Audrey Hepburn the next. How great is that! Fun, right! I dress by my moods and I don't really have a set style. I know they say to pick a style but I am more of a mood person. Some days I might want to feel classy and glam and the next day I want to feel like a hip gypsy. With vintage I can do my own thing. And...best of all it's affordable.

My passion for vintage started as a child. I was fortunate toexperience growing up in a thrift store. I was there on weekends and sometimes after school. Working, folding, working on displays. I loved it. I wore used clothing and I didn't really know any difference until I was older. I always got so many compliments on what I was wearing and how pulled together I looked so it never bothered me that I was wearing used. It did get somewhat embarrassing in high school when one of the more popular girls would ask me where I got something. It was then that I realized I grew up poor and that I was attending a school where most of the students were from affluent families. At that time it wasn't chic like it is now to wear used (vintage) and most would not be caught dead shopping in a used clothing store. But, looking back the inquiries were most likely compliments and not a snub like I thought they were. I never told anyone at school or at least not anyone who wasn't close to me where I got anything. Maybe I should have and then vintage would have gotten chic a whole lot sooner.

Fast forward...I still wear and collect vintage but have added selling to the list. If you like to have fun with fashion, who doesn't, then vintage is the ticket. It is much cheaper than the mall or boutiques and way lots more fun.

Thanks for reading my story and I hope you will take a peek into my shop!

We realize things happen. If you contact us to let me know asap that things have changed...this will be appreciated.

Shipping
DOMESTIC SHIPPING: We normally use priority mail unless the weight is great and then it will be shipped standard. We try to ship all items within 3 days of payment.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING:
Canada and international rates are determined by weight and shipping profiles built by similar or like items. If you would like the exact cost please contact us with your city and country and we will be happy to calculate that for you.

We will be happy to offer insurance and upgraded shipping at your expense.

We cannot offer tracking information on international purchases (unless shipped priority or express) so please be advised that you are purchasing at your own risk. We will do our very best on our end to ensure its safe and timely delivery but once it leaves our hands it is out of our control.

We take great care in packaging your item. If it is lost or broken in transit we are not responsible for either the cost of the item or the replacement. Most of the items are one-of-a-kind and cannot be replaced. You may request to purchase insurance by contacting us prior to shipment.

We are willing to combine shipping on purchases of more than one item.
Refunds and Exchanges
Because of the vintage nature of the items in this shop all sales are final. All the vintage items in our shop are sold in 'as is' condition. We do our best to describe all items accurately. Please feel free to ask as many questions as you need before purchasing any item. We do not do refunds! Unless of course we have made a mistake and then we will happily do whatever it takes to make it right.

There are no returns--but no worries! We measure twice to make sure our listings are correct. We note any flaws and do our very best.

Please know your measurements because if an item does not fit you correctly it is not a valid excuse for a return. If we have made a mistake in the listing we will gladly make it right as our reputation is important to us and we want to keep you as a returning customer.

Also, please keep in mind that all computer monitors show color differently and that the color shown on your monitor may not be exact. This, like not fitting correctly is not a valid excuse for a return.

No borrowers! We are not a rental service so you cannot purchase, wear and return.

Feel free to contact us prior to purchase about any questions or concerns you might have and we will do our very best to answer them.

PLEASE SEE ADDITIONAL INFORMATION!!!
Additional policies and FAQs
To our wonderful customers, please remember that all our items have had previous owners and are subject to some wear. All items are sold in 'as is' condition. We will describe as close as possible any flaws that are found. We will disclose anything extreme such as rips, tears, holes, soiled areas, etc. If we haven't disclosed something in the listing you can be sure that we were not aware of it. We will do our very best as we want you to have a good shopping experience and be happy with your purchase.

Please note:

Our items have not been washed or dry cleaned unless specified in the listing. Washing and dry cleaning will be left to your discretion as we assume you will clean to freshen and to make it your own. Vintage is known to have slight smells. If slight smells bother you or if you have a sensitive nose it may be better not to purchase vintage. This like fit and color are not a valid excuse for returns.

Everyone has their own idea of condition and here is mine!

PLEASE NOTE ITEMS ARE DESCRIBED AS SUCH:

MINT: Perfect, rare.
NEAR MINT: Like new, no flaws.
EXCELLENT: Minor flaws, garment not compromised and extremely wearable.
VERY GOOD: Noted minor flaws, easily repairable, wearable.
GOOD: Noted flaws, probably repairable, wearable with care.
FAIR: Numerous noted flaws, significant flaws, might be repairable.
AS FOUND: Damaged goods and probably beyond repair. Possibly used as study or upcycled.

PLEASE TAKE THE ABOVE DESCRIPTIONS IN CONSIDERATION WHEN MAKING YOUR PURCHASE.

THANK YOU,
SHIRLEY
