Announcement   Vintage clothing and accessories from pre 1990s. Carefully selected and unique items mostly from my own collection.
In vintage you will stand out from the crowd, wearing a unique item that has not been not mass produced. Many vintage clothes were lovingly hand made (my mother made some of the older items in my shop) and those that were not, were produced in small numbers so it is unlikely you will ever encounter someone wearing the same piece.
Most of these items were my own or my family's so have been carefully handled and stored.
I do not wear or sell vintage fur.

I shall also be including some of my vintage inspired hand knitted items/knitwear in my listings from now on (2014) as I have just become addicted to knitting after knitting myself a jumper to wear on my canal boat! I continued to knit and now have a cupboard full of hand made vintage style knitwear all of which I cannot possibly wear myself so I have decided to sell some on them on here; the ones I designed myself.
I decided to include these knits in my vintage shop rather than open a new shop for them as I find they compliment genuine vintage clothes very well: shrugs and little cardigans and jumpers worn over vintage dresses and jumpers with vintage skirts - in the way women wore them in the 1940s, 50s and 60s (and still do today!).
I only knit a design once so no-one will ever have the same garment, but if asked can do one to order!

I love vintage clothes especially 1940s and 1950s. I am selling vintage items which no longer fit or suit me plus other vintage items which I have picked up along the way and added to my collection. Each piece has been carefully selected for its uniqueness and authenticity.
Vintage clothing is very eco-friendly in that we are reusing, reducing and recyling and when we have finished with the product we simply pass it on.
Not only are we vintage devotees purchasing beautiful and unique items but we are helping to reduce the need to produce ever more volumes of throw away "stuff"!
Please note that these are vintage items and so are not "perfect"; all items have been worn to some degree before listing here. Descriptions are subjective so please contact me for any further information you require before you buy.

Vintage: Refunds given and returns accepted; please contact me for any further information you require before buying. Returns within 14 days of receipt please. Return postage is the responsibility of the buyer. Refund issued when returned item is received by me.
If the item has been grossly misrepresented in its description or if I have mis-dated (it is not always easy to precisely date vintage clothing, but I do my utmost to get it as accurate as possible), I will accept returns and give a full refund of cost of item on receipt of returned item, but cannot refund or pay postage costs. BUT please follow Etsy's guidelines and contact me to discuss issues BEFORE leaving neg feedback as I will always do my utmost to resolve problems.

These items are vintage not new and for that reason, never can be perfect and people who purchase vintage should always be aware of this as they are getting something unique but "used". They are of course pre-worn, pre-used, but unique and it is this individuality I feel which adds to their charm.

Hand knits: returns are accepted with the buyer responsible for paying the return postage.

Items within UK will be sent recorded delivery so they can be tracked and a tracking no. will be obtained. A proof of postage will be obtained for items sent by airmail to EU countries and USA, Canada and Australia and all other destinations unless you have requested tracking or the item is sold for $80+ (please see shipping section above).

I can accept no responsibility for items damaged or lost in transit if you have not added tracking to the shipping costs.
