A truly beautiful dress that will be worn proudly for my wedding vows. Fast postage & great communication. Dress was wrapped beautifully and smelt lovely (which I always worry about with vintage clothing if it's not easy to wash) thank you so much.

hurdyburdy vintage… hand selected, high quality and immediately wearable for you to enjoy.

I love selling internationally. My vintage clothing and accessories have flown around the world, with customers buying from Canada, Hawaii, New Zealand, Japan, US, Australia, China, Europe etc etc - and of course, the UK. Whether I am sending a parcel to film / theatrical costume departments, TV personalities or to someone who is buying their first 1960's dress, I am always delighted to see them going to good homes where they will be cherished by new owners.

I have had a major crush on 60's music, fashion, films and culture since being a child but I never deny myself the enjoyment of the awesome 70s (orange!) or the joy of Mid Century (designers to make the heart skip!).

So take a look and discover what's new from the forties to the eighties and remember, it may be vintage... but it's your first time.

ABOUT VINTAGE ITEMS

Vintage refers to items which are more than 20-30 years old and as a general rule have been previously loved and used. Sometimes new old vintage can be found, also known as deadstock, these are items which are vintage but have never been used.

I endeavour to give the full condition of vintage items within individual listings.

I want you to love your purchases from hurdyburdy.
Additional policies and FAQs
GETTING THE BEST FIT.

Here is a useful webpage for women's international clothing sizes
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clothing_sizes

ARE YOUR PERSONAL MEASUREMENTS CORRECT?

Please ensure your own measurements are correct when purchasing, a good tip is to measure an existing garment you have which fits you well. You can then compare this against measurements given in listings.

My measurements are taken on the flat - this simply means you lay an item flat and measure the total length from shoulder to hem, from shoulder seam to cuff for sleeve length and from shoulder seam to shoulder seam. For the bust, measure from one underarm across to the other and double this. For the waist, measure across at the narrowest point and again double the measurement. For hips, measure 8 inches down from the waist then from one hip across to the other and again double this measurement.

If you have any doubts please consult with me first as I do not accept returns for items which do not fit.

Frequently asked questions

Sizing Details

All garments are measured whilst laid flat and the sizing for bust, waist, hips, shoulders, sleeves and length are listed in each listing. If you are on a mobile device you will find this info by clicking on 'Item Details'.

Please check your personal measurements against those given, allowing for wriggle room, before purchase. This could save you time and money as you may otherwise have to pay return postage if the fit isn't right.

A handy tip is to measure a garment from your existing wardrobe to ascertain fit or take your own measurements, using a dressmaker's tape measure, and carry these with you when shopping for vintage clothing.

If you have any questions relating to sizes, please contact me before purchasing.

Shipping, Tracking and Customs

Purchases are dispatched within 1 - 3 business days of cleared payment.

Layaway: Is offered on higher priced items and deposits are non-refundable.

Reserving an item: Please choose this option only if you are certain you wish to purchase the item on hold.

Garment Care

All garments are either professionally cleaned or gently hand washed before they are listed to ensure they are ready to wear.

The exception to this is with certain older items, which may be left untouched or are gently steam cleaned.

I strive to sell good quality vintage items but please bear in mind the age of the garments. Any flaws, no matter how small, are mentioned in the individual listings.
