Amazing bag sold by amazing shop in amazing condition. This bag it totally going to a great home and it wouldn't have been without this seller. This is the same exact bag my mom has, and is in better condition than hers. The seller even told me it was vintage/distressed. Great find by the seller and great price and fast shipping. 5 stars all of the way.

Buyers are responsible for keeping an updated address attached to their Etsy account. We ship via Etsy Labels, so the only address we see is the one attached to your Etsy, not Paypal. We are not responsible for shipping to the wrong address if it was not changed prior to purchase. If items are returned to the seller due to an incorrect address, the buyer is responsible for re-paying shipping charges.

Please message us ASAP if a different address is needed for shipping!

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

Please double check and compare measurements to confirm fit. The Insole length measurement is taken from inside the shoe. Please contact me if you require any additional measurements!

When will I receive my item?

If you are in the US, I ship within 1-3 business days, and ship via USPS Priority mail. Once shipped out, your package should arrive within 2-3 Business Days

If you live outside the US, I ship within 1-3 business days, and ship via USPS First Class International or Priority Mail. Both generally take 7-14 business days once shipped, however customs can sometimes cause delays.

I live in Brooklyn too, can I pick up or try on in-person?

Unfortunately I am running my shop out of my home for the time being, and for that reason I do not allow an in-person pick ups/try ons at this time.

Can I have my shipment expedited?

Please contact me if you need your item by a specific date, and I will do my best to make it happen. I can upgrade shipping to a faster method for an additional charge.

While I do my best to ensure quality, please contact me right away if there are any issues, and I will do my best to make it right. Let me know of any issues before leaving feedback, so I have the chance to correct the mistake!

I received my item, and they don't fit. What can be done?
