About

Dreem Co. is an art project and vintage clothes are the medium.

This vintage fashion house is a serious look at the incredible art of vintage clothes, from the moment in history they moved beyond the concept of the fashion designers sketch pad or the first cut of a handmade newspaper pattern. A textile art form that came from a time when some of the most talented seamstresses ever to thread the eye of a needle spent time on the details of every aspect of a garment. When the entire world was involved in one big art project called clothing, farmer's wives to city dwellers, women and men of all economic backgrounds were able to sit by candle light or on the humming factory floor and have an excuse to spend time on the merry-go round of creativity, disguised as necessity.

Dreem Co. not only honors the makers and period specific styles of the vintage pieces it features by spending hours of research on fashion plates, catalogues, advertisements and visits to textile museums and more, in order to flesh out the history, but often I will dreem up an ensemble, sketch it and then seek out each piece until it's complete. Other times I will first acquire a piece and then let it simmer in my subconscious until I can see the complete idea it will inspire, such as an amazing feedsack dress paired with lipstick red shoes in a setting like an abandoned train station. The listings are more than just vintage clothes they are the culmination of a complete creative process--unique vintage piece, general concept, research, sketch, styling, location scouting, model (make up, hair, accessories), photo shoot, photo editing and then putting it all into a listing.

The amount of time I spend here at Dreem Co. (often including restoration) on each piece means you will not find scads of vintage clothing, but you will find select pieces that are part of a larger fashion project, ones that have a unique story to tell about a time in history or the possibility of your tomorrow.

Shipping
All items are specially packaged for shipping, which occurs twice a week. In the United states I ship Priority with the USPS only. Shipping confirmation is automatically included. It is the quickest and most reliable shipping option available.

International shipping is First Class. All items are flown via airmail these days, so they all arrive at the same time. First Class is considerably cheaper for my much valued world-wide customers.

Insurance will be purchased for all items over $100. Insurance is a complementary act of Dreem Co.

If an item is time sensitive I am happy to find a solution that works for you.
Refunds and Exchanges
Please shop with care and be sure to ask any and all questions before purchasing an item as ALL SALES ARE FINAL.

Dreem Co. takes an extensive amount of time professionally cleaning and restoring our vintage items so they come to you ready for wear. That being said all of our items are authentically and wonderfully vintage. What this means is that you can expect any vintage/antique clothing to have some wear over time. I do my best to restore/note whatever I can. Even the most excellent grade of vintage is likely to have a minor issue or two. There may be instances where a minor issue, such as a loose seam, pinhole or small stain will not be caught by me no matter how hard I try. Just keep in mind that this is the nature of our rare, gorgeous, unique vintage world and this is why all items are sold AS IS.

Honesty & Quality are the most important goals of Dreem Co. I want you to receive a piece of vintage fashion that will make you look good and feel good too. So please feel free to send a flock of questions my way until you are satisfied that a vintage piece is a good match for you. In return you will receive a prompt and detailed answer. For example, I love to help with sizing! I will do everything I can to help you make sure that a vintage shoe, hat or piece of clothing will be the right fit. If we work together the idea of returning an item would become obsolete.
Additional policies and FAQs
Think of buying an item from Dreem Co. as a long distance, long term relationship. I am happy to work with customers long after they have purchased an item to answer questions of any future restoration and preservation issues that may come up over the life time of your vintage fashion piece. It is my utmost goal to preserve vintage fashion history.
