Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

All bags are measured and the dimensions are given on the listing.

All garments are measured flat.

If you require further information on a particular bag, I have no problem providing extra photos or size comparisons if you contact me.

Care instructions

Vintage generally means "used". As with most vintage/ antique items care should be given for use, storage and cleaning.

All bags are cleaned by me before listing them on my site.

Some discolouration is normal for vintage bags, vintage beaded bags and metal works, including chain, clasp apparatus, clasp, zippers, snaps and buttons can all tarnish over time. I do not recommend trying to clean any metal on the bags as the chemicals can destroy the bag itself if spilt, and also it takes away from the vintage quality of the bag.

Bags should be stored in a cool dry environment. Bags that are considered antiques (beaded or otherwise) should be wrapped in acid free tissue paper to help prevent any discolouration.
