READY TO WEAR VINTAGE - items are Professionally cleaned & repaired by expensive specialists.

Our NEW website: RETROLANDVINTAGE.COM

"When a piece of clothing has an artistic element, it has a magic effect on the person who wears it and gives them joy." Emilio Pucci

Are you tired of receiving garments not as described? With open seams, bad alterations, smells, stains, shot out elastic, just to name a few. I know as a collector myself, I am tired of it! Well, you found the right place to buy your collectible items & it's like no other store you will find in this business, I guarantee that! I am the antithesis of all the other people in the vintage clothing business. It is my passion and feel like I am saving all this fashion history that I love so much. I wish I could keep it all but I chose to share it with the worldwide marketplace.

What our store defines as "ready to wear" --- this means we remove stains and smells, repair open seams, holes (re weaved or repaired depending on the fabric), missing buttons or other notions, we even correct bad or unprofessional alterations.

We specialize in the 1960's & 70's. Our focus is on the fellow connoisseur & collector which is why we clean and restore our items for you.

We also do not overly photoshop our pictures of items to hide flaws and condition issues. I personally am tired of buying things for myself on etsy from sellers who do this! I have standards and do not sell my customers items without fully describing them.

We have two warehouse locations, one in Memphis TN & one in Illinois Chicagoland area.

Our client lists include celebrities, TV shows, movie & theater wardrobe, prop houses, & most importantly they are all return customers who shop frequently. Why? Because they get the garments without needing to do anything to them but alterations.

You will see a lot of our collection on period piece TV shows, movies, musicals, reproduced by current fashion designers, and more...

We care a lot about our customers & offer an entirely different experience from other stores you've shopped with. We personally spend thousands every month for our customers. You may have also noticed we use mannequins to show the fit of clothing rather than models. We choose to put our money into cleaning our garments rather than paying models to wear dirty ones.

We take pride in having all our items cleaned / repaired by expensive expert specialists which gives customers value for their money. There is NO other store like this in the universe. We raise the bar for all other sellers in the vintage clothing business.
*************************



**Payment / Layaway Plans available. We are always open to reasonable offers if we can afford to do so because the restoration costs can be quite expensive.

** We do NOT hold or reserve items without a deposit. We have 2 stores where things are listed and have to end the listing on another site to reserve it.

We are happy to work with all budgets just message us to start the conversation. Thank you!

We BUY vintage items as well. Just send us a message and some photos and we can use PayPal to make the purchase simple for us both.


*This store is NOT a resource for other Sellers on this site: If you copy paste or steal my listings / include links from my store --- I will report you to my ATTORNEY.

**We do not lend out any of our RESTORED clothing to fashion photographers or bloggers. You must purchase them at full price if you want them for your project. Thank you. Restoration costs are expensive so we need the items to be purchased.

If you need cool high quality jewelry to match your vintage wardrobe I recommend you visit this shop, her stuff is equally amazing as the clothing sold here :

About

Online Boutique of Rare & Restored Vintage Items

Thanks for visiting Retroland, we our online only for the reason that our items are not to be handled until purchase --- due to costly restoration.

We are collectors ourselves and offer our customers value for their money, since these items are rare & collectible. Our store does not sell people projects.

All cleaning and repairs are done by skilled professionals who use eco friendly non toxic chemicals to clean our clothing. The cost to clean a dress is $15-35 to give an idea of who we use to clean our garments.

Our shoe cobbler is the best I have ever seen.

Our furniture restoration people are highly skilled and not cheap.

There is no other store like this in the universe. Our prices are very good compared to what you get from other sellers who do nothing to their items. We take the time and the risk, and for this reason we have loyal clients who visit our shop often.

Shop policies

Welcome to Retroland where all our items are professionally restored to the best condition possible. We spend thousands every month having our clothing, shoes, and furniture restored.

We sell to celebrities, celebrity stylists, movie, TV show, & theater productions. Most of our customers are return customers whom we adore and bend over backwards for. Remember, these items only increase in value as you own them and become assets when acquired, so it is important to put them into the best condition possible.

  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover

Payment
All items must be paid in full before shipping.

I have never experienced fraud with etsy's merchant service provider. It's safe and hassle free!


RULES for RESERVING items in this store********you are required to read this when you're making payments in my shop.

If I agree to reserve an item you must pay a NON refundable deposit. It's a simple process of paying 20% with a listing or through PayPal.

We can work with your budget if it's a very expensive item, like $500 or more, such as Vintage Pucci for example.

You will have 60 days to pay for the item unless prior arrangements are made. You can even have multiple items on hold at one time without the 60 day policy if I agree to it. The item needs to be at least $100 to be placed on hold or layaway.

You can make payments during this time or you can pay it all off at once. I will NOT chase after you about making payments for paying off items on reserve. I do expect communication throughout from you. I do not have time nor the desire to hassle people to pay me, so after 60 days items will be put on the open market and available to everyone if you do not communicate with me.

I have heard every excuse in the book about not paying me payments. If you cannot afford these items, then please do not put them on hold. This is a family business and how we pay our bills. I will not work with you if you become a hassle or interfere with sales by not following my policies. I know you difficult buyers very well and you will see another side of me when you try to back out of paying. You took this item off the market so it is now yours or you pay the penalty of it going back on the market without any refunds.

Your 60 days Starts with the day you put down your first payment/ deposit. All payments & deposits are NON refundable.

I do not give refunds or partial refunds. All items are described to the best of my ability. These items are old and I'm as thorough as I can be. I do not guarantee fabrics, adhesives, elastic, or anything with the ability to breakdown from age.

I do not guarantee fit and due to us being very descriptive, therefore we do not allow returns or store credit credit. All sales are final.
Shipping
WE NOW HAVE TWO WAREHOUSE LOCATIONS SO NOT ALL ITEMS are eligible for combined rates or might be shipped from separate locations.

Shipping cost for international buyers have sky rocketed. It us now

First class - $25 for only 1 lb or less and goes up from there.

Priority mail - $50 for only 1 lb or less and goes up from there.

These are not our rates but USPS rates, we apologize for how much they've gone up.

I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR DELAYS by the postal service. I am NOT responsible for the errors of the postal service. It's very inconsiderate to blame mistakes made by them on me. I am happy to help you as much as possible because I am so familiar with the way they operate.

USPS is NOT me and I do not have any control over their services, so I cannot be responsible for: DELAYS, LOST, STOLEN, Damage or Incorrect addresses.


IF ITEMS ARE RETURNED TO ME FOR ANY REASON YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYING TO RESHIP THE ITEM. IF YOUR ITEM IS RETURNED TO ME BECAUSE YOU DID NOT PICK IT UP FROM THE POST OFFICE THE ITEM IS RE-LISTED IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO PAY FOR RE-SHIPPING IT.

If you need it quicker then message me to edit the listing before you pay with the appropriate rate. I am not responsible for delays due to weather, etc... By postal services.

NO CUSTOMS / DUTIES ARE PAID BY ME FOR INTERNATIONAL PACKAGES. BUYER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL CUSTOMS FEES.

I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR LOST OR DAMAGED PACKAGES. THE POSTAL SERVICE IS NOT ME, AND ONCE IT LEAVES MY HANDS I HAVE NO CONTROL OF WHAT THEY DO WITH THE ITEM. IF YOU NEED TO UPGRADE OR IF YOU NEED EXPRESS MAIL, for example, ASK BEFORE PURCHASE & BEFORE THE ITEM IS SHIPPED.

If the address is not valid and the package is returned or lost I am not responsible. Many buyers provide me with address that are wrong or that they used to live at, it is not my responsibility to pay to reship the item to a new address. It is not my responsibility to have your package reshipped, it is your responsibility to provide me with the correct address and to pay for the shipping again when you made the error. I will not cancel or refund the transaction, as I do not pay for other peoples errors. I run a successful business and have policies to keep my stores running smoothly and successfully.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: It is your responsibility to check customs for your items, DO NOT MESSAGE ME WITH "WHERE IS MY ITEM?" If your item is returned to me it will be re listed and re-sold to the open market if payment to re-ship the item is refused by you.

I will not ship your item unless it's paid in full. When I mark a payment or deposit shipped, it's only for my shippers to know that it is not ready and I can take it out of the list of items to be shipped that day. When your item is actually shipped it's when you've paid it off and tracking info will be uploaded automatically.


If you ask me to lower the value on the customs forms I cannot insure the package.
Refunds and Exchanges
Rules for canceling an order before it is shipped: we have our items listed in multiple locations and once something is purchased it cost money and time to repost these adds. There is a $15 restocking fee if you cancel your order before it ships.

We do not allow returns based on items on items not fitting. All measurements are provided and as accurate as possible. This is not a valid reason for requesting a return or opening a case for item not as described.

NO refunds or RETURNS - NO store credit & NO exchanges is our policy with no exceptions. We go above & beyond all other sellers to do the best we can to have our items restored for our clients and for this reason we cannot accept any returns. We have had many bad experiences forcing us to uphold these policies.

No returns accepted under any circumstances. No exchanges under any circumstances. If you require pictures or any additional information than provided, please ask because I am happy to assist you before the purchase is made. I give very detailed descriptions and do the best that I can. We pay a lot to have things cleaned and repaired, but remember these items are old & used and things could be missed. We do not guarantee these things because they are not new. If shoes break heels, need new adhesive, need new soles, new inserts these are things we cannot promise won't need to be repaired, especially once worn. We do not put all our items through a test by wearing them ourselves so we cannot guarantee them needing further restoration.

NO REFUNDS or PARTIAL REFUNDS ARE ISSUED. ALL Vintage ITEMS ARE DESCRIBED TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY.

These vintage items are old / worn and I'm as thorough as I can be. I do not guarantee adhesive on anything vintage, elastic, or anything else with the ability to breakdown from age. I do not guarantee anything that has to do with shoes because once they are being worn things can happen.

If you attempt to force a return by shipping the item back to us, we do not refund your payment. You are responsible to pay to ship the item back to you or be out the total amount.

IF ITEMS ARE RETURNED TO ME FOR ANY REASON, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYING TO RESHIP THE ITEM.

***All deposits & payments on items are non-refundable. If the item is not paid in full by 60 days from your first payment / deposit, you will loose your money unless another agreement has been made with the shop owner.

If I agree to accept a return you will not receive any shipping $ back and if the item was damaged or worn, means I was lied to so you will pay a LARGE penalty fee of $100 minimum and the cost of another cleaning or repairs.
Additional policies and FAQs
Rare vintage items are expensive as well as collectible. We focus on the collector in our business. Which is why are items are put into the best condition we can possibly get them in. Our cleaning bills are what stores pay in rent every month, but we put this money into the products we sell instead.
