Refunds and Exchanges
The vintage items offered have been worn/pre-loved and range in age from 20 to 60 years and older; they are not perfect!
I choose not have garments dry cleaned (unless noted when they are) to keep costs low. It is best, depending on the type of garment, to have them dry cleaned or wash upon reception, unless I indicate on the listing that I have done so.
All items are vintage and "ALL SALES ARE FINAL". I do my very best to disclose and describe all noticeable issues or flaws so you can be confident about your purchase. I am not a photographer but I do my best to take accurate pictures of each item. If you have any questions about sizes and measurements or need additional photos on items please CONVO ME and I will be happy to work with you. I will do my best to answer any questions you may have before you purchase.
I do not offer refunds for fit issues, small imperfections, variances in monitor colors, or buyer's remorse since these matters are out of my control.
If you feel an item has been SERIOUSLY misrepresented you can contact me 3 days within reception of merchandise and in most cases a refund will be issued when the item is returned. Shipping fees for returning an item will not be refunded.
Additional policies and FAQs
I use various forms of display – dress form, mannequin, garments on hangers
Measurements of dress form and mannequin are indicated in the item description and I will note if the garment is pinned or not.
MEASUREMENTS & SIZING
Vintage clothing fit differently than today’s garments; they are cut closer to the body. For this reason it is important to give some allowance for wearing ease and make sure you know your own measurements.
Measurements provided are actual measurements of the garment taken flat then doubled at the bust, waist & hips. Consider your personal comfort, read the sizing information and compare measurements of a similar comfortable fitting garment of your own to ensure proper fit.
How to measure:
CHEST: place tape underarms and around fullest part of chest wearing a bra. I measure garment flat, underarm seam to seam (x2)
SLEEVE: place tape underarm to wrist bone. I measure both: from top of sleeve seam to sleeve hemline and from underarm to sleeve hemline
WAIST: place tape around your natural waistline. I measure waist area of the garment from seam to seam. I measure garment flat, underarm seam to seam (x2)
HIPS: place tape around natural hipline ( appr. 8’’ below the waist). I measure garment flat, underarm seam to seam (x2)
LENGTH: place tape at back of natural neckline all the way down the length of your back. I measure from neckline seam to the hem of the garment.
