Thank you for sending my pink Silk coat with the white fox trim so quickly. I have bought a lot from ETSY and this coat was the best wrapped and presented,with a beautiful ribbon,which I really appreciated. Even your attached label was very chic. I have a long pink 50s wool pencil skirt that I made myself that matches it perfectly and I will enjoy wearing it out for afternoon tea, evening occasions or church. I am delighted with the exceptional service,as I have bought many coats from the US. Marjie, from Frome, Nr. Bath, England

Thanking you for this beautiful necklace is not enough. It is so special and beautiful. It looks even better in real time. I tried it on with the dress I'm going to wear it with and as I thought it really makes it special. Thanks again and thank you for your wonderful customer service.

About

Salvato Collection. "Fanciful Vintage & Antique Fashion: Enchant your own legendary wardrobe."

When I was young I wore Nana's 1950's vintage lounge dresses. It took almost a decade and a half, after purchasing my first of many pieces of vintage fashion, before Salvato Collection was born. In the few years since its creation Salvato Collection has been recognized in print magazine, numerous blogs, and online sites. A wonderful applause to following an innate passion.


I find so much joy in being surrounded by these beautiful and luxurious materials. I love the soft, feminine, and girly-girl colors and fabrics. Silk is my emotional bonheur! The history and stories behind each piece enchant and thrill me. It's my goal to give each piece a new life and home. It feels good choosing timeless styles that are classic wardrobe "staples', fun head turners and last for years to come.


It's takes a lot before Salvato vintage makes its appearance, every detail matters. I don't just grab any vintage dress I see; I first have to love it -if you don't love it, don't buy it. All selected vintage goes through "Salvato Polishing School"; from Organic Dry Cleaning, pressing and storing to professional photography, extensive research, and multiple inspections. Some pieces are reconstructed or brought to a seamstress when needed. Each garment is special, I'm not afraid to spend time or invest in each piece. One dress, a 1920's silk, took over three months to hand stitch the seams so it could securly have a new life.


I love to look and feel beautiful and its a lift to life and confidence when you are wearing something that is regal and feels lustrous. I hope to help every customer look and feel beautiful, after all, life is fleeting... let it be romantic and wear something Salvato ("saved")


May you and yours be blessed, friends!

    I have been know to wear and buy vintage since 1997. Although, Ive been obsessing over it since I was born. In 2011, after online purchases were not meeting my high standards (after much time and prayer) Salvato Collection was born. Now I get to share with the world, the best of the best vintage. Storage, care, cleaning, pressing, packaging - every detail is painstakingly fretted over. To me this is the preservation and honor of not just clothes, but art, craftsmanship, stories, history, and beautifully textiles. That deserves honor, respect and loving care. Love is the theme I stand behind and apply it to every piece, customer, and my life. Salvato Collection is for the collector and the ones who want that white glove, detailed service. The customer who knows that they deserve robe heard and pampered. Many customers have become my personal friends and I am blessed to share what I love. And if you dont find me entangled in the darling and charming world of everything vintage, old and lovely - you'll find me deep in love with my children, husband, family and friends. "Life is short, do what you love, while always aiming to be the best version of Love." A. Deare

ORGANIC DRY CLEANING
We care about the Earth and we care about preserving / restoring historically relevant fashion and accessories. Organic Dry Cleaning (ODC) may not be able to remove tough, stubborn stains that abrasive chemicals could easily dissolve, but there are plenty of reasons why we stick with ODC. Here's why we put in the extra cost and effort into Organic Dry Cleaning:

- Organic Dry Cleaning (ODC) does not leave clothes smelling like "chemicals". They smell light and clean.

- ODC is better for the earth, environmental, and clothes.

- ODC uses Biodegradable and Earth friendly ingredients, not harsh or abrasive chemicals.

- ODC is gentler and cause less damage to older materials, like vintage cotton and silk.





OUR COMMITMENT TO INTEGRITY
-Items undergo detailed inspections from our shop, dry cleaners, seamstress, antique professionals, appraisers, and/or professional jewelers.

-Due to the delicate nature of some vintage all items are inspected prior to shipment.

-Though we take care in the storage and protection our of items, if any additional flaws are seen, noted, or determined outside of listing, seller will communicate flaw to buyer prior to shipment with the option to opt out of sale, images of flaw, and/ or a discount.
