Welcome to Violet's Vintage Emporium! A place for lovers of quality vintage items from the 1920s to the 80s. This shop is here today due to a love of vintage style of the 20s, 30s and 40s since childhood.

Me - I have been wearing and collecting vintage clothing and accessories for 30 years and have been a vintage seller for 25 years via fairs and online sales. Etsy is a wonderful way for me to reach vintage lovers all over the world.

I hope these little pieces of history give their new owners as much joy as they have given me - in both the hunt for them and in passing them on :)

Returns and exchange details
✩ Items are sold on an "AS IS" basis and I do not accept refunds or offer exchanges or store credit, so please make sure that you check all measurements and sizing carefully. All sales are considered FINAL.

All items are vintage unless otherwise stated so please do not expect them to be in NEW condition. Vintage items are normally more than 50 years old and will almost always show some degree of wear. That being said, I am committed to providing quality vintage garments. I inspect all items carefully and list any imperfections I find. If I miss something small, I do apologise.

Garments are measured carefully and I give my best estimate in inches or cm. Sometimes items can be pinned to fit my model so please ENSURE you refer to my measurements for final sizing information. In the extreme case of misrepresentation (and I have no intention of misrepresenting any item, at any time), I will offer you a refund. The shipping costs are non-refundable.

If you have any queries at all please email me before the auction ends and I will be happy to help in any way.


I will reserve items for up to '24 hours'. Please do not make a reservation if you are not serious about purchasing the item.
✩ Payment is accepted via Etsy checkout. All payments are expected immediately after purchase. If payment is not received within two days, and there has been no response to my messages, the transaction will be cancelled.

✩ Your item will be shipped once payment appears in my bank account.


- Mint: An item is as perfect and pristine as when it was originally made and shows no sign of wear (mint condition is rare for vintage clothing).

- Excellent: An item shows typical signs of wear due to occasional use.

- Very good: An item is considered wearable but has some surface flaws (staining or soiling, for example).

- Good: An item is wearable but cannot be returned to excellent condition even if repairs are made.

- Fair/poor: Not fit for wear, design, display or study piece. Many flaws.
✩ At VVE I try to make shipping prices as accurate as possible, if I accidentally overcharge you, I will refund the difference via Etsy checkout. Due to a busy schedule, I am only able to make it to the post office every 3 to 7 days. If you need your item by a certain time, it is your responsibility to let me know.

✩ Shipping quotes within Australia are for REGULAR parcel postage by Australia Post. If you would like express post or you want to add insurance or tracking to your purchase contact me PRIOR to purchase. Larger packages include tracking but items sent as letters or small packages do not.

✩ PLEASE NOTE: Covid-19 has made international shipping times much longer and some prices more expensive due to all items other than letters needing to be sent by TRACKED POSTAGE. Economy Air from Australia is temporarily suspended and international flights currently being at a minimum. International postage is taking weeks or months to arrive in some cases.

✩ I am not responsible for the accidental loss of items by Australia Post or international postage equivalents. If you would like to insure and track your LETTER or item, let me know before purchase.

✩ I am not responsible for any of the customs charges in the country of the buyer. Please find out what these may be before purchasing.

✩ You will receive a dispatch email once your item has been shipped.

✩ I am based in Australia and happy to ship items worldwide. Just ask! :)

✩ I like to be 'green' when posting, so if a larger item arrives in a recycled box - don't be alarmed, I'm just doing my bit for the environment. The contents within are always packed and wrapped with care. :)
