About

A vintage love affair.

Vintage clothing seems to have always been part of my life. My grandmother was a professional dressmaker and taught me French seams, bound button holes and couture detailing. Growing up in a creative home I was wearing "dress up" vintage as a child. Upcycling was a way of life since hand-me-downs always needed altering. I'd stitch them up into my own creations... adding lace to my schoolgirl tights and plaid skirts!

At school in Vermont I dug through old barns and attics to come up with my wardrobe of Victorian skirts, Edwardian blouses and Flapper petticoats. Then on to NYC where I worked for top vintage dealers, learning restoration skills from seamstresses who worked on the finest garments at the Met. They completed what my grandmother had started... a lifelong love of fine craftsmanship. My favorite way to sew is simply a needle, thread and patience.

I've been charmed and surprised by vintage clothing for many years. Here in my shop you'll find an ever-changing collection of garments that continue to delight me... from their timeless grace, sophistication and craftsmanship to their simple whimsy.

And I still put lace on my stockings!

    I'm a Brooklyn mixed media artist. I've been involved with vintage clothing and textiles for many years. From collecting to restoration to selling to modeling vintage for top NYC dealers... it's been a fascinating love affair.

SIZING

Sizing label on vintage items are not the same as contemporary sizes. I will quote these size labels when found on the garment but please use the actual measurements listed for a correct fit. All my items are measured with the item laying flat. You can measure your own personal garment this way and then compare the measurements to make sure an item will fit you. If you have any questionsplease don’t hesitate to contact me. PLEASE NOTE: I do not offer refunds due to an item not fitting.

CONDITION

Please note that all of the items listed here are vintage and most are pre-worn. As a result these items may show some normal wear and imperfections. I check over all items carefully and anything really note worthy will be mentioned in the listing. All of my items are sold "as is.” If you have any questions regarding condition please contact me before purchase.

COLOR

Color variations can occur between what you see and what I've listed that are beyond my control due to the differences between monitor calibrations. So, if you have any questions regarding color please contact me before purchasing.

REFUNDS

Refunds are only available if I have grossly misrepresented an item and only after the item has been safely returned and inspected. Shipping costs to return the item will also only be included in the refund if I have grossly misrepresented the item. So please be aware of this before purchasing.

INSURANCE CLAIMS:

If an item arrives damaged, you must keep the item and package materials as originally received and contact me immediately. If the packaging is not retained, no claim can be filed and no refund will be given.

If an item does not arrive please contact me as soon as possible and I will look into filing a claim. All items are insured through Etsy's shipping insurance.

If these procedures are not followed, no claim can be processed and no refund will be given.
Payment
I accept Paypal and credit cards through Etsy's Direct Payments as well as Paypal. Payment is always due at time of purchase.
Shipping
I ship three times weekly. If you have a rush please let me know and I'll do my best.* I ship through the USPS as economically as possible and am happy to offer combined shipping on standard shipping.

Shipping prices are estimated. If I miscalculate shipping charges on an item I will refund the extra charges rounded to the next dollar after the cost of basic materials. I do not charge handling fees. I include insurance on all items over $50.

Internationally I ship First Class International unless the item is too large for that service and then I ship Priority. I automatically insure items to all countries that Etsy's shipping insurance covers. Please contact me if you're uncertain if insurance extends to your country.* Combined shipping will be configured through communication after an item is purchased.

I do not ship to APO/FPO/DPO locations.

International buyers are responsible for any additional fees charged by their countries. Please do not ask me to falsify customs documents. I cannot do that for you. Please contact me if you would like to upgrade to Priority or Express Mail and I'll adjust your fees to include these charges.

*I no longer ship to Mexico, Brazil, Italy, Russia and all African and Middle Eastern countries due to unreliable shipping within those countries.

All shipping, insurance and tracking are paid for by the buyer.

Though I take great care in packing and shipping, any item lost or damaged on route is the responsibility of the buyer and must be dealt with via the USPS and or the insurance carrier I use. I will help to facilitate this process but can't guarantee a return on a claim.

*NOTE: Express shipping is only available under certain circumstances for an additional charge within the US. Please contact me to see if I can accomodate your request.
