Why are the sizes different on vintage clothing items?

For women, vintage sizes were tagged different from the sizes we use today. Some time in the late 1970’s the garment industry switched over to our current sizing (Size small 4-6 Medium 8-10 Large 12-14 Extra Large 16-18) Vintage sizing is as follows:
Extra Extra Small: 8 Extra Small: 10 Small: 12 Medium: 14 Large: 16 Extra Large: 18 Plus size: 20 and up



How do you measure your items?

All items are measured in inches. Garments are lying flat, measured one way across the garment then doubled. For example, if a bust measurement for a garment measured 18 inches across, the bust size is 36 inches. We provide basic measurement for best fit but always feel free to email us if you need additional measurements.



The color of my item is different than what was shown in the listing?

We do our best to photograph each item as best we can so show fabric, fit and color accurately. Some items are just not photogenic and if there is a difference in color/fit/etc, we will note it in the listing. Monitors vary in showing color, so if there is any doubt or you want to double check on color, send us a message and we will send you a color swatch.



I Need To Change Something On My Order. How Can I Do That?

If there are any special instructions we need to know prior to shipment, feel free to send us a message.




Can you combined orders from both your eBay and Etsy store?

Yes! If you place two orders on both sites, just let us know in advance and we will ship all the items together.



What is your return policy?

We accept returns on almost all our items. If you are not happy with your order, your item does not fit right or you simply don’t love your item, just send us a message and we’ll be happy to coordinate a return for you. Some of our items are non-returnable: Formal/Prom dresses, Wedding dresses and Apparel, Antique items and some final sale items. These items will be marked as non-returnable on the listing. If you are worried about fit for a formal event, send us a message so we can work with you.



How do you process your returns?

Once an item is received back in our hands, we will email you and send your a full refund for the order as long as it comes back to us in the original sent out condition. All returns are processed within 24 hours of delivery.
Do you offer discounts on multiple items ordered?

Yes! We do offer discounts on orders of five items or more. If you are looking to buy multiple items, send us a message and we will work with you on prices.



Do you combined shipping?

We offer free US shipping for all orders and combined shipping cost for our overseas customers. Overseas shipping goes by weight, send us a message and we can give you a quote on shipping to your location. If we quote you a higher price than the actual shipping cost, we will send you the shipping cost difference.
