Frequently asked questions
What Does "Vintage" Mean?

A vintage item is anything that is more than 20 years old. As such, all vintage items have been owned by someone else first. This means they are not in new condition. Vintage items are imperfect by nature. I strive to list only items in this shop that are in tip-top condition, but it's important to understand that a vintage item in flawless condition is wonderful but rare. It's not unusual to purchase an item with minor flaws, such as a pulled thread, a loose seam, light stains, or heel tips that need replacing.

I scrutinize items (I literally go over them with a magnifying glass) and describe flaws, if any, in detail. Due to the fragile nature of vintage merchandise, no guarantees about durability can be given.

How long will it take to get my order?

I ship within 48 business hours of purchase.

1st Class Mail (USA) takes about 4-7 days.
Priority Mail (USA) takes about 2-4 days.
Priority Mail Express (USA) takes about 1-2 days
International Orders: Up to 2 Months

Items valued at $500+ will be sent by Priority Mail only, with sufficient insurance to cover total loss. Additional shipping charges may apply.

Please note that delivery time from the shop to your home is the responsibility of the USPS, and can vary depending on location, time of year, and seasonal conditions. Once the item leaves my hands, I have NO CONTROL over actual delivery time. If you're mad at the slow Postal Service, give them a bad review, not me!

Why buy vintage?

One word: QUALITY. There's a reason vintage items are still around. When you buy vintage, you are buying something that has had a long life because it's stood the test of time, both in craftsmanship and style. Even with their flaws and sometimes fragile nature, most vintage items have decades of life left in them. You can't say that about anything else that's made these days.

How can I make sure something will fit me before I buy it?

Never buy based on Size Alone! Always compare the measurements given to a garment you already own that fits you well. Use the guide below:

Clothing:
With a measuring tape, measure:
Shoulder Seam to Shoulder Seam
Bust: Armpit to Armpit (then Double it for women)
Waist: Measure around the interior of the waistband
Length: Top Seam to Hem
Hips: Seam to Seam across widest part of the rear, then double
Inseam: Crotch to Hem measured on inside seam
Front Rise: Crotch to front waistband
Back Rise: Crotch to back waistband

SHOES
Length: Toe to Heel measured on the inside of the shoe
Ball of Foot: Straight across the widest part of shoe on outside
Heel: Straight down Back of Heel

How can I have a good shopping experience here?

1) READ THE DESCRIPTION IN FULL. Note the stated color, which may look different on your computer monitor.

2) Look at photos carefully. Zoom in.

3) When buying clothes or shoes, compare the measurements given against similar items you already own that fit you well. NEVER buy based on size alone. Vintage sizes are different than contemporary sizes.

4) Make sure you understand the CONDITION of the item before you buy.

5) Ask questions BEFORE you buy. I do accept returns on most items but all shipping charges are the buyer's responsibility. Returns are for the purchase price only minus a 20% restocking fee.

6) Read the shop's policies. By making a purchase, you agree that you have read this store's policies and will abide by them.

Will you reserve an item for me or put it on layaway?

Reserves: No- Too many people have asked for an item to be reserved, I take it off the market, then the person disappears on me. So no reserves.

Layaway: 30% Non-Refundable Deposit, payable upon agreement of the plan, and full payment within max of 30 calendar days. Failure to pay the deposit upon agreement of the plan or the balance due by the agreed upon date will result in forfeiture of the layaway plan and the deposit, and the item will be re-listed at full price.

Convo me if you need reserve or layaway.

Do you accept returns?

Returns accepted except when noted in the listing. Buyer is responsible for ALL shipping costs. I do NOT provide return shipping labels.

TERMS OF RETURN:

1) Contact me IMMEDIATELY if you want to return your item.

2) Provide me a Tracking Number on the return package.

3) Returns must be RECEIVED by me within 7 DAYS of delivery to you.

4) Initial and return shipping fees are NON-REFUNDABLE. Refunds are for the purchase price ONLY minus a 20% restocking fee.

5) Refunds are given only after merchandise has been received in the SAME condition.

6) I am not responsible for returned items lost in the mail.

7) Damaged items will be assessed a fee up to full refund amount.

8) Any returned item that smells of CIGARETTES will be REFUSED.

Terms of International Sales

If you are a buyer outside the United States, please note the following terms of sale:

1) Buyer is responsible for all taxes, import, and customs fees.

2) Nothing will be marked "gift" or less than the actual value of the item as a way to avoid or lessen fees.

3) A refund will not be given on items returned to the shop due to buyer's failure to retrieve their item at the post office.
