Recycling vintage is necessary for preserving the past...
I've always loved vintage. Cracked wood, old buildings, weathered brick. Old photos collected by my family for generations. The stories they tell just by their presence is magical. In today's world of gadgets and selfies, it is even more important to continue collecting and preserving these pieces of the past. Artifacts are collected in museums, but the simple, daily things such as a handmade dress, a sewn doll, simple pottery, crocheted lace, are items of the everyman. These are the things I collect and enjoy passing on to others.

Most measurements are taken while garment is lying flat. In some cases, it may be difficult to find the flat measurements because of an unusual cut so the size may be approximate and will be noted as such.
Bust- measured across the chest from bottom of armpit to armpit.
Waist- measured across the smallest part of the waist. If the waist band is elastic, it will be noted and the widest possible measurement also included.
Hips- measured at widest area or approx. 5 to 7" below the waist.
Sleeves- measured twice, from the seam at the top of the shoulder to the end of the cuff and also from under arm seam to end of cuff. Both measurements will be given. (On some items listed earlier, only the under arm measure may be given.)
Length- tops, dresses and coats are measured from the highest point of the shoulder at the neckline, before the collar starts if it has one, down to the end of the garment; pants and skirts are measured from the top to the bottom hem.
Inseam- pants and shorts are measured from the crotch down to the hem.
Shoulders- measured across the back of garment from shoulder seam to shoulder seam. If item has no shoulders seams, it will be an approximate width.
Length- inside of shoe from toe start to heel end. Please take into account the style of shoe when determining how it will fit your foot (pointy toe, square toe, flats, platforms, etc.) If I am unable to measure the inside due to style, I will measure at sole.
Width- Insole measured inside at widest part of insole at ball of foot. If I am unable to measure the inside, I will measure at sole.
Vintage items are pre-worn and not new, unless otherwise specified. For this reason, expect minor flaws in garments, accessories, luggage and shoes. I will do my best to describe flaws and provide photos as appropriate. I work hard to take good photos so please zoom in and look over the piece well. If there is any question, definitely ask.
