Top Shelf Vintage = Bluegrass Booty
Hello and welcome to Bluegrass Booty!
Years ago in Kentucky, with a heart full of wanderlust, I sold most of my personal vintage collection in order to buy plane tickets to Europe. Traveling led to more great finds and I opened this etsy shop to finance my adventures. By 2009, I found myself sourcing vintage for some of the most well-known names in fashion including designers, brands, celebrities, costuming departments, and select vintage boutiques around the world. Our list of buyers includes Rachel Comey, CR Fashion Book, Kate Spade, Miranda July, Talulah Willis, Malin Lindaeus and TOPSHOP.
Bluegrass Booty sells only top-shelf vintage goods. Each item in the shop is a hand-picked treasure, carefully chosen for superior textile quality and current, classic, or cutting-edge style and silhouette. All flaws are clearly listed and every item has been hand-cleaned, machine-washed, steamed, pressed and/or polished so that your order is ready-to-wear when it arrives on your doorstep!

Refunds and Exchanges
We do not accept returns or exchanges for any of our items. All items are sold as-is based on condition. If you have received an order that was in any way misrepresented, please get in touch and we will work towards a satisfactory solution.
We hand-select and scrutinize each and every item before taking the time to list it in our shop. All of the items are at least 20 years old and are guaranteed vintage. Prices are set to reflect the condition of each item. Any flaws, imperfections, holes, stains, fading, or overly worn areas will be CLEARLY NOTED in each listing. Items are inspected at least five different times (when purchasing, cleaning, photographing, posting, shipping) and only top-quality goods are sold in our shop. That being said, sometimes you never know how much life an item has left in it, which is why vintage must be treated kind. All items are sold as-is and are priced based on condition. Please use the following guide to determine how we rate our finds:
☆☆☆ THE BLUEGRASS BOOTY VINTAGE RATING GUIDE ☆☆☆
☆ MINT/NEW OLD STOCK: Found with original tags or in original, unworn condition. Extremely rare.
☆ EXCELLENT: In nearly-new or gently-used condition with no flaws to report. Most items in our shop fall into the EXCELLENT category.
☆ VERY GOOD: Just below excellent condition showing a bit more wear with possible tiny flaws. Any flaws will be noted in the item description.
☆ GOOD: Obvious flaws or significant wear. Possible repairs or extremely delicate materials. All flaws will be noted in the item description.
☆ WEARABLE: Something kind of awesome that just might be falling apart. Generally reserved for really old items, costume vintage, or threadbare styles.

CAN YOU TAKE MORE PHOTOS?
Not likely. Premium items may have more photos available, but most listings will only have five photos. We take a ton of time shooting, editing, and posting photos for our listings, so unless truly warranted, no more will be available.
DO YOU HAVE MORE THAN ONE OF THAT?
No. It is very unlikely that we will ever have two of something... ever. We sell only the most unique goods here at Bluegrass Booty.
WHAT ABOUT A NEWSLETTER?
When you place an order with us you may receive a newsletter regarding new arrivals and sales events. If you wish to unsubscribe from this list, you can opt out of at any time by clicking on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email.
WILL IT FIT?
Vintage sizing is very different from modern sizing, and we like to use as "best or estimated fit" to help our buyers determine average fit of garments based on modern sizes. These sizing ranges are given as estimates only, as we all know sizing varies GREATLY. All measurements are given in inches in order to allow buyers to check/compare sizing. To ensure your item is well suited for you, please double-check and compare the listing measurements to a similar style item you already own and know fits you well and please allow room for movement when considering measurements. Any size references are for USA Women sizes unless otherwise noted. If you are still unsure and would like additional details for any item, please don't hesitate to ask. And please remember that we do not accept returns for fit.
