How It All Began

It was the summer of 1993. I was 15 years old and finally ventured into a vintage clothing store. It was nothing like I had ever seen. Every piece was unique and had a story to tell. Some items were demure, others were over the top and dramatic. It was at that moment I fell in love with all things vintage. I left the store with what I now know to be a Gunne Sax dress. Very traditional style. Blue with calico print and the lace up corset. It made me feel unique and special.

Etsy has been a wonderful addition to my life. For the past 18 years I have scoured thrift stores, swap meets, estate sales, etc. for goods for myself. I have passed over hundreds of unique items because they weren't my size or exact style. Etsy has given me the chance to bring those items to you. I look for items that have that je ne sais quoi feeling to them. They are all special and I hope they give you the same feeling that I got when I walked into my first vintage store all those years ago.

Refunds and Exchanges
Our objective is to seek out and find the best vintage pieces. Each item is vintage quality and therefore may have slight imperfections. If there are any imperfections we will do our best to photograph them and specify any wear and tear. We also meticulously measure all items so you will know exactly what you are purchasing.


In the rare instance that you receive an item with a flaw that we missed, contact us within 24 hours of receiving your item(s) to resolve the issue. Please be prepared to send us pictures of the damage or flaw. We will then offer a refund. Please contact us before you leave feedback.


We meticulously wrap and package items appropriately. In the rare occurrence that an item is damaged in shipping, USPS requires the following to be photographed to file an insurance claim:

1. The damaged item

2. The box or envelope it was shipped in

3. All the packing materials including bubble wrap and tissue paper

We appreciate you photographing this for us. It expedites the refund process.


We do not accept returns because an item does not fit so please look at the measurements carefully. If you have any questions on fit or sizing please message me. I've been known to try on garments and compare the fit using my measurements versus yours. Hopefully this helps determine if the piece will fit perfectly.
