Thank you for shopping in my store, please let me know if you are looking for anything specific , I have so much more not listed. Please ask questions, and let me know what your intentions as to how you will be using them, this will allow me to help you prior to you making a purchase on rare or fragile clothes. They are not refundable, due to the nature of the elements, Antique clothes can look perfect but , are never brand new perfect, fabric is weak after 100 years. even though they can look perfect to the eye. I do allow returns on some items, such as wedding gowns. shoes, just ask if you are unsure of an item. My prices are not always firm, please ask if your working with a budget.

I'm getting ready to list stuff for the men, and I always keep my winter clothes posted even though it is summer in the USA . I do this for my wonderful Australian friends!

My shipping cost for some reason keep changing without my doing. If you feel the shipping cost is ridiculous, please say something! Please. I just came across one that was more than the item and I know I didn't do it. I think they change when there are glitches. I'm going to report it to Etsy. If there is other sellers having this same problem, let me know please.

She sold me a fake cape made in 1940/1950 but she wrote in the ad "vintage 1800's military authentic civil war cape or possibly older".

Debra responded on Aug 6, 2016

Buyer from Italy, had cape for 2 months, used it, then tried to say it was fake to get a refund, the cape was authenticated ,and clearly not 1950's, the US military buttons on it proved that. really? This Cape was 100% US 1800's Military, the military didn't even use capes like this in 1940's or 50's, He never asked the first question prior, if he had really been interested in the cape being authentic, I promise you, he would have asked lots of questions prior. You can't imagine how many people try to get away with using your vintage clothes for costumes, then come back and try to return! They will say anything! It's selfish! This man clearly doesn't know the first thing about US history/vintage clothes, other then he likes to play dress up. Only thing fake is his feedback.

Debra is very thoughtful and meticulous in getting her items to you. She spent a lot of time figuring out how to ship my chairs without disassembling them. They came just as described. Would do business with her again

About

Growing up Poor, made me creative, humble and appreciative!

My father took me to a thrift store which was more like a vintage store, when I was 16, other girls got their prom gowns from high dollar department stores, or NEW YORK. My school was from the rich part of town, kids drove high dollar cars, their parents bought them. I rode the bus and my parents couldn't afford their own car, let alone buy me one. LOL
My mother felt so bad, I will never forget the look on her face, when I tried on this gown for prom, I had told her about, she told me they didn't have the money, it was 200 dollars, which was what gowns sold for then, in department stores. They have gone down since then.
I was not upset, more upset for her. that's when my father took me shopping! It was the best moments of my life!!! I learned to my surprise, my father knew me better than myself. He showed me how to buy designer clothes for pennies. When I came home with an amazing vintage gown, for 50 dollars, My mother was shocked! It was like the one in the movies, she had called me over in a hurry to see on TV. I pretended I was in those old gowns dancing!!! I had to know what it felt like to wear one. I never felt poor after that! It was a way out! My parents have been married 50 years this Jan.4 2014. They raised 5 kids. I am so grateful for their love and wisdom, and sacrifice, they taught me to be humble and loving, hard working, respectful and most important, appreciative and happy! I wouldn't trade my life for anything!.

Pay pal is best.
Shipping
When shippng International, USA does not provided tracking or insurance, that isn't ridiculously high in cost, if you want this added, please inform me, otherwise, it is not added. However, your item can be track by the customs form number, but only from the USA, to customs. I have not found this to be reliable though. Sorry!
On a better note, I have never had any problems shipping international,
And I ship more overseas, than here in the USA . Thank you
