About

Slinging vintage.

Little Ghost was started in early 2012 with a small booth at a local flea market and has grown into a brick and mortar shop in downtown Portland, Maine. You can also find us selling at the Brimfield Antiques Show in Massachusetts during the summer, on Instagram, at the Portland Flea For All on the weekends and of course on Etsy!

Little Ghost is run by two kick ass gals who've been friends for years and are always on the hunt for the next great piece of vintage.

Portland, Maine is an amazing town to visit...if you find yourselves in our neck of the woods stop into the shop...you'll find us in the arts district, on Congress St.

    I co-own a great little vintage shop in Portland ME. It’s a pretty great gig. I spend my day’s thrifting, upcycling, watching too much Netflix, and scolding squirrels who try to cross the street at inappropriate times.

    Owner

    I'm a Maine girl who has a passion for vintage and antique art, clothing, furniture, and decor. I love finding and researching items from the past, I'm a huge cat nerd and I watch Six Feet Under in it's entirety at least once a year.

Returns and exchanges
I gladly accept returns and exchanges
Contact me within: 3 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 7 days of delivery
I don't accept cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
Returns and exchange details
If you aren't completely satisfied with your item send us a convo to discuss a return immediately after receiving it. You will be refunded for the full price of the item only once it arrives (in the same condition as it was shipped) minus the shipping charge and you will need to cover return shipping...feel free to reuse the original shipping supplies if you can. The item MUST be sent with tracking information and the return MUST be initiated within 3 days after the item arrives or we reserve the right to deny the return.

Pay close attention to the measurements as sizing varies from brand to brand and decade to decade. Please free free to contact us if you are unsure if an item will fit and we will do our best to help you.

The items we sell are preowned and in used condition, unless otherwise noted. There almost always will be small signs of wear/use and we do our best to note/photograph all imperfections and flaws. If we think a flaw is too great or distracting we don't list an item...however our opinion and yours may vary.


We are not accountable for any mishaps by the Post Office, and again, we can always prove that we've shipped an item.
Payment
Payments can be made via Paypal, Etsy Giftcard or through Direct Checkout. Maine buyers must add 5.5% sales tax, and if you're near Portland feel free to have us reserve an item online for you that you can pick up or try on in the store (we're on Congress St) We are happy to reserve items for up to 1 week so if you need to wait for payday just send a convo!
Shipping
DOMESTIC: Shipping will be very prompt, same day or next day in almost all cases. Expedited shipping is available at an additional cost. Your items will be sent via First Class, Priority, or Parcel post depending on weight. Tracking is always provided...we will always have proof of shipment.

INTERNATIONAL: Our default shipping method is First Class International for all items under 4 pounds. There is no tracking provided on this method once it leaves the US and even though your package is mailed promptly customs on either end may hold it up for a few weeks...an unavoidable situation when shipping internationally. As we print all our labels through Etsy you will get a notification/proof of shipping once it's been sent out. You may incur duty or customs fees and your post office may hold your items without contacting you, in that case...you should become familiar with your countires rules/regulations before making an international purchase. If you wish for us to use a different shipping method please contact us before purchase.

Please do not ask us to alter the value of your item on the customs form or to mark it as a gift. It is against the law and we won't do it under any circumstances.

****Shipping costs include postage, handling and packaging cost.
Additional policies and FAQs
In general your vintage clothing may need more care than your modern pieces. We handwash and hang dry ours, and you may find that seams need the occasional repair as will buttons and the odd zipper. Any upkeep is the responsibility of the buyer.

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

Please be sure to reference the measurements to ensure fit. Any use of "Small" "Medium" etc is only an estimate. If you need assistance with how an item fits be sure to ask, we're happy to help.

Care instructions

Vintage items generally require more care and gentler handing than modern clothing. Seams, buttons, zippers and hooks will often need repair or replacing and any upkeep on your item once purchased will be up to the buyer. We do our best to note any existing flaws and will almost always hand wash or dry clean items before listing and generally will note if we haven't (ie items with original tags or that came to us already cleaned).
