aller-retour vintage

Most items are listed first on my Instagram page (link below) at slightly lower prices; you can head over there for first dibs.

You can also find me on Depop selling modern/ vintage-inspired pieces that are <20 years old (seller ID @allerretour, link below under “shop website”).

In the 30+ years I've been buying vintage clothing and accessories, I've gotten in the habit of purchasing great pieces to "rescue" them from a garage sale or thrift store, even if they didn't fit me. I'm thrilled to use this shop as a means of getting these items into the hands of someone who will adore them!

    I've been buying vintage since age 13, when I used to take the bus to a shop called Somebody Else's Closet in East Lansing, Michigan. If only I still had the Victorian lace bloomers I bought there!

Thank you for visiting Aller-Retour Vintage! I want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase, so I do my very best to describe my items and any minor flaws they may have. However, please keep in mind that these are previously-loved items, and unless specified as "never-worn", will likely show a little wear. For info on the rating of condition of vintage items, please refer to the chart under "Additional Information".

Please feel free to convo me with any questions.
Merci!
Noëlle

Additional policies and FAQs
Sizing info:
To ensure a good fit, it is recommended that you know your measurements, and/ or compare measurements of your own clothing to those in the listings. If you need additional measurements that are not listed, just ask!

For clothing:
Please bear in mind that the measurements given are that of the item, not your body! So, for example, if you have a 34" bust and a button-down blouse has a 34" bust measurement, you'll likely be straining the buttons a bit, whereas with a knit top you'd be fine. Ditto for hips- unless it's a form-fitting knit dress, it's best to allow an inch or so extra for movement.

For shoes:
Shoe length and width measurements are taken inside the shoe. My best advice is to measure a pair of well-fitting similarly styled shoes as a point of reference.

Vintage Condition Rating Scale (taken from the Vintage Fashion Guild):
Mint: Perfect, pristine, no signs of wear.
Near Mint: Like new, no flaws to report.
Excellent: Has been worn, no flaws to report.
Very Good: Noted minor flaws, easily repairable or already repaired, wearable as purchased.
Good: Noted minor flaws, most likely repairable or already repaired, wearable with care or after repair.
Fair: Numerous noted flaws, some significant, possibly repairable/wearable.
Poor: Damaged beyond repair with value as a study piece, not wearable.
