Returns and exchange details
Please be sure to review all details and photos of each item. Vintage sizing is different than modern sizing, so please review the measurements and compare them to a similar item in your closet. We do not offer refunds.
Payment is expected within 48 hours of purchase. If payment is not received, the item will be re-listed.

Layaway Program:
I offer customers the option of layaway for items over $100. This allows customers the option to pay for their item over a 4 week period (or agreed upon timeline). Please note, the layaway program is only offered on individual items priced at $100 or higher. There will be a 5% charge added to all layaway purchases.

To request payment through the layaway program, select OTHER as payment option during check-out. Once I receive your order, I will contact you to work out an agreed payment plan and timeline. Your first payment will be a minimum of 25% of the total order, however, you can choose to pay more than 25% on your initial payment. The balance of your order must be paid by the agreed due date. Failure to pay for your order by the agreed due date will result in forfeiture of all funds paid to date, and the item will be re-listed.

I realize that plans or circumstances change. You may cancel your layaway within 14 days of the purchase date to receive store credit toward any other item in the shop. All store credits must be used within 12 months of the date issued.

Layaway orders will be shipped within 1-2 business days after the final payment is processed.

If you have any questions about the layaway terms, please feel free to message me and I'll be happy to discuss them in detail.
All items ship free within the U.S. via First Class standard shipping. Expedited shipping is available upon request and will be added to the final purchase price. Insurance may be required in some cases.

International shipping via First Class International and Global Priority Mail. Special requests for expedited services via USPS, UPS or FedEx are available and will be added to the final purchase price. International buyers are responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred.
Additional policies and FAQs
Vintage sizing is different than modern sizing and garments tend to run small. I measure all garments laying flat. The bust is measured from armpit to armpit and then doubled. The waist is measured at the waistband for skirts or pants, or the smallest part of the mid section of a dress, jacket, or top, and then doubled. The best way to see if an item is going to fit is to measure a similar article of clothing that fits you well while laying it flat, and then compare it to the measurements in the listing. If the bust measurement falls between 38 - 39 inches, lean toward the larger size since it is easier to tailor down.

Vintage clothing has been worn before and will naturally show signs of wear and age. There might be the occasional slight, or trivial imperfection. We do our very best to make note of any flaws in the item description, but may overlook small flaws. A refund will only be given if an item is grossly misrepresented. We do not offer refunds for small imperfections.

Although we take great care once they reach us, vintage items have had a previous life, so we cannot guarantee an item’s longevity which includes, but is not limited to, the construction (including integrity of thread, seams etc.), fabrics used or materials, pigments, dyes, trims and adornments on the item.
