She looks so much like the one my parents gave me so many years ago, and I know my daughter will treasure this one too. Great seller and prompt shipping. Thank you.

Welcome to my shop – and thank you for visiting!

GENERAL SHOP ANNOUNCEMENTS:

CUSTOMER CARE:
I strive to be fair and approachable in all my dealings with my customers.
I want you to be delighted with your purchase so, if there are any problems, please contact me and I will do my best to put things right. On the whole, Etsy sellers value their reputations and their relationship with their customers. However, we are only human and we do occasionally make a genuine mistake! Please allow us the opportunity to resolve any issues to our mutual satisfaction.
In particular, it would be much appreciated if you could please contact me before leaving negative feedback. Unless I am made aware of a problem, I can’t take steps to resolve it.

PRELOVED ITEMS: please note too that most of the items on sale are vintage or antique. They have been used and loved in a former lifetime and, in most instances, will bear the hallmarks of previous usage. I believe that these integral and inevitable signs of wear and tear are what give vintage items their distinctive character and charm. However, if you prefer items that are new and pristine in appearance, my wares may not be for you!
Smaller signs of wear and tear (such as minor blemishes or thread pulls, in the case of preloved garments) which are commensurate with the age of the item will not necessarily be listed in depth within the item description. However, more significant defects (such as major stains or tears) will always be mentioned so please read the description carefully before you purchase. I am always happy to supply further information should you require it.
Most items that can be washed without the risk of damage will be laundered before being placed on sale. Others (e.g. those that require dry cleaning or other specialist cleaning) will not necessarily be cleaned prior to sale. In the case of particularly old or fragile items I think it preferable to allow you the buyer to decide on your preferred method of cleaning (or otherwise, as the case may be).
Please be aware that most vintage/antique items should not be subjected to harsh modern cleaning methods and that cleaning (and/or restoration) is undertaken at the buyer's own risk.

SIZING OF GARMENTS: please be aware that vintage dress sizes are usually smaller than those in use today. I have provided detailed measurements in most instances so please check these measurements against a garment that you already have to ensure a good fit. Measurements are usually taken with the garment laid flat unless otherwise stated.
Where dress or shoe sizes are provided these will usually be UK sizes (in most instances the US equivalent – or near equivalent - will also be quoted; but, once again, I must emphasise the importance of checking the precise measurements given to ensure a good fit).

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Buy with Apple Pay
  • Pay with Sofort
  • Pay with iDeal
  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept Paypal, Etsy Direct Checkout and Etsy Gift Cards as methods of payment

Please note that you do not need to have a Paypal account to pay via Paypal (you may use your credit card instead when checking out via Paypal).

Paypal, Etsy Direct Checkout or Etsy Gift Cards are the ONLY methods of payment that I accept from non-UK buyers.
I will consider other forms of payment (such as a sterling cheque drawn on a UK bank) from UK buyers but please contact me first to discuss. The goods will not be despatched until the cheque has cleared.

I reserve the right to refuse to ship an item to an unconfirmed Paypal address (not usually a problem for smaller purchases but it may be an issue with higher value items).

Please pay for the item within 3 days of purchasing. If this is likely to pose problems, please contact me to discuss. I am able to reserve items if required, but reserve the right to re-list the item if payment is not received within 3 days.
Shipping
** I SHIP WORLDWIDE **
The Royal Mail estimated delivery time within Europe is 3-5 working days, outside Europe 5-7 working days (though delivery can sometimes take considerably longer - e.g. during the Christmas rush)

Goods will usually be despatched within 3 days of receiving payment (excluding weekends and Bank Holidays) although it may take up to 5 working days during busy periods such as Christmas/New Year. I will send a message to confirm despatch.

Purchases within the UK will be sent by First Class post (with higher value items being sent via a ‘Signed For’ trackable method). International purchases will be sent via Airmail (again, with higher value items being sent via the International ‘Signed For’ method).

If you require additional insurance or guaranteed next day delivery (UK only for next day delivery), please contact me so that I can invoice you for the extra amount. In some cases, particularly for larger value items, insurance will already have been included in the shipping charges quoted in the item description. Please contact me should you require clarification.

I am happy to combine shipping costs providing it is safe and practicable to do so. This will usually result in a considerable saving on shipping costs, particularly for lighter items. However, please be aware that there will be instances where this will not be the case - or where the saving may not be as much as you had hoped (e.g. if the increased combined value of a package requires additional insurance cover).
If you wish to purchase more than one item, please purchase in the normal way and I will issue any refund that may be payable via Paypal.

Please note that I often have to estimate shipping costs within the item description (particularly for additional purchases - where it can be difficult to predict the final weight of a package). If, when I come to weighing the item(s) prior to despatch, I find that I have grossly overestimated the shipping costs (after allowing a small amount for packaging) I will refund the difference via Paypal.

Please note that the shipping charges quoted do NOT include any taxes, customs fees etc that may be charged when the item is imported into your own country/state (should indeed they apply). You the buyer are solely responsible for any such charges and for importing the goods from the United Kingdom into your country/state.

I recycle packaging materials as much as possible in order to reduce costs as well as the impact on the environment. In particular, I almost always use recycled cardboard boxes, as opposed to purchasing new ones.

Delivery times can vary. Airmail post within Europe usually takes 3-5 working days, outside Europe around 5-7 working days. Please be aware, however, that international shipping to some countries can take from 2-6 weeks (and that delays can often be the result of lengthy customs procedures within your own country). Unfortunately I have no control over any such delays!

Please contact me if your parcel does not arrive within a reasonable timeframe (after making allowances for any international shipping/customs delays). Non-delivery is extremely rare but, should this happen, a full refund will be given. Please note, however, that I cannot issue a refund until the package is either safely returned to me or sufficient time has elapsed for Royal Mail to deal with the insurance claim. Depending on where you reside, this can be several weeks after initial posting.

If your package is damaged on receipt please contact me immediately and retain the original packaging for possible inspection by the relevant shipping company.

Please note that I cannot refund shipping costs on packages that are returned to me as undelivered or uncollected

Please note that I cannot be held responsible for any consequential loss caused by late delivery, damage in transit or failure to deliver by Royal Mail and/or any other appointed carrier. Liability is limited to the value of the item(s) purchased.
Refunds and Exchanges
I appreciate that it can be difficult to gauge the suitability of an item from a photograph – so, if the item does not meet your expectations, please contact me to arrange a refund.

I offer a ‘no quibble’ returns policy, subject to the conditions stated below:

Before returning an item, please contact me first (for confirmation and returns address information etc). Please return the item within 14 days’ of receipt. A refund cannot be given until the item is safely received by me
The refund (or exchange if applicable) is dependent on the safe receipt of the item by me (complete, unused and in the condition in which it was originally sent to you), so you are advised to use a trackable and/or insured method of shipping and to package carefully (using the packaging in which the item was originally sent - or equivalent).
Unfortunately, I am often unable to refund the initial shipping costs (the refunding of initial shipping costs is dependent on individual circumstances – e.g. if the item has been misdescribed). Please note too that RETURN shipping costs are the buyer’s responsibility.
Additional policies and FAQs
COLOUR: I make every effort to reproduce colours accurately. However, please be aware of the limitations of digital colour photography and of personal monitor settings: the colours are not always ‘true’.

Please note too that any 'props' that may be included in my photographs for decorative effect are not included in the purchase. If in doubt as to what is included in the purchase, please refer to the item description and title or contact me for clarification.

ALLERGIES: all my items come from a smoke-free environment. However, I do have pets. Although I make every effort to keep my pets away from any items that are for sale, please be aware of this if you are acutely allergic to animals.

Thank you once again for visiting my shop.
