Cottontail Vintage specializes in practical yet pretty, one-of-a-kind hand-knitted goods; vintage clothing and accessories; and whimsical hand-crafted jewelry.

We took our name from the Duke Ellington song "Cotton Tail." Our love of thrifting and vintage shopping began in 1982 with a first visit to a funky, local vintage shop on the beach.

Favorites include the 1940s, men in fedoras, film noir, fishnet stockings, lipstick cases, rhinestones, flamingos, Art Deco and Moderne, tiny evening handbags, pleated pants, scarves, Revlon's 'Cherries in the Snow,' saddle shoes, poodle skirts, beaded cardigans, pearl necklaces, handkerchiefs, charm bracelets, martini glasses, peep-toe shoes, diners, Scottie dog pins, bobby socks, the "Mad Men" look, car coats, pea coats, gilded compacts, gloves for ladies, and classic Miami Beach.

WHAT OUR FANS ARE SAYING ABOUT OUR ITEMS:

Which were very well received I might add!

This item arrived broken and so I immediately contacted the seller. They said they'd refund my money, per the shop's policy. Never happened. Four other attempts at getting my money back over the course of six weeks have been ignored. This seller is a thief. Don't do business with them.

Payment
We accept only PayPal for both domestic and International orders (Canada included). For orders within the continental US, Puerto Rico, and Guam, we accept PayPal and U.S. Postal Money Orders. No personal checks, please. We discourage against sending cash because it can get lost or stolen very easily.
Shipping
All items to be shipped within the USA and Puerto Rico are shipped First Class Mail or Parcel Post via USPS (2-5 days). We ship twice weekly save for traditional and federal holiday weeks (i.e. Christmas, Thanksgiving, Labor Day, Independence Day, and Memorial Day) where we will only be able to ship once weekly. If you require something to be shipped via USPS Priority or Express, please convo us and we'll reconfigure your total order. Insurance for items up to $100 is $2.10 and is HIGHLY recommended for fragile items. We will issue a refund for items that are damaged and uninsured (minus original shipping costs) OR offer you a discount on future purchases in our store. Please add $1.05 for Delivery Confirmation if desired.
We are always glad to combine orders for shipping.

International Orders: items are shipped via First Class USPS international mail. Express orders are extra; please message us if you require faster shipping. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide a confirmation number since the US Post Office does not offer that service for overseas orders.

All items are packed securely to minimize the potential for damage.

Need us to ship to a giftee? We'll do that, and at no extra cost to you.
Refunds and Exchanges

Privacy Policy.
Cottontail Vintage will never, ever, ever sell or share your e-mail with a third party. As a Preferred Partner, your purchase entitles you to receive our e-newsletter; but if you choose to opt-out from receiving sales news from us, please just send us an e-mail with “remove” in the subject line, and we’ll take you off of our list.

Measurements, Sizing and Ratings.

Vintage clothing, while aesthetically delightful, can be also proportionately frustrating. Since women’s clothing sizes vary wildly from decade to decade, what fit your size 12 mother in 1960 most likely won’t fit the size 12 you today. Plus, manufacturer’s sizes vary: if you wear a small in one brand, perhaps a medium will fit you better in another. European and American sizes are also at odds for comparison. One more caveat to wrangling with vintage duds: oftentimes, the original label has been removed – or, in the case of handmade pieces, was never there at all.

So what to do? To make it simple for everyone, especially you, the buyer, we at Cottontail Vintage simply measure the width of garments flat and then double the measurement.

All clothing is sold in clean, wearable condition unless otherwise noted in the description. We use a rating system of Excellent, Very Good and Fair. Please read the condition guidelines below.

Excellent – Like-new condition. No visible flaws.

Very Good- Pre-worn, minor flaws if visible at all, but good wearable shape.

Good - May display some fading or haves spots, but is generally in good condition and still wearable.

RECOMMENDATIONS:
For care of your vintage investment, we recommend:

Hanging garments on padded hangers (dresses, jackets) or folding them gently and placing them in a drawer (trousers, sweaters)

Dry-cleaning or hand-washing in a mild detergent such as Woolite or Tide with gentle cleansers. A good relationship with your local dry cleaner is a blessing. Make sure they are equipped to handle, and have had experience, laundering vintage garments. If you must wash your garments at home, a lingerie bag is a good idea for laundering more delicate pieces or clothes with jeweled or embroidered detail.

A tiny portable sewing kit. Keep it with you at work, in your purse, or glove box. As well, you may want to have on hand an extra supply of serviceable, plain buttons to sew on in an emergency.

Avoid bleaching whites. Through the ravages of time, older fabrics are more susceptible to disintegrating underneath today’s harsh chemicals. A better solution to whiten old clothes is a capful of white vinegar or a few teaspoons of baking soda mixed in with your regular detergent.

Genuine silver jewelry – often stamped with “925” on the underside – should be kept in a jewelry box or wrapped up to prevent oxidation (browning).

Costume jewelry should be cleansed in a mild solution of dish soap such as Palmolive, and cool water. Brush gently with an old, soft toothbrush, rinse, and air-dry.
We hope you enjoyed shopping with Cottontail Vintage and commend you on keeping the ‘vintage lifestyle’ alive!
