On Etsy since 2008

Morning Glorious Vintage, a Vintage Clothing and Jewelry Emporium

I'm Jen, and I've been wearing vintage since I was 14. Back then, I filled my closet by borrowing my mother's 1940s dresses, and hunting at yard sales and auctions. I started Morning Glorious 18 years ago to share my vintage clothing and jewelry finds with you, and I've had this Etsy shop since 2008. In 2012, my husband Vincent and I teamed up to open a second Etsy shop together for our menswear collection, called MisterBibs Vintage. We ran a 'brick and mortar' store which was chosen as one of the "Top Ten Best Small Vintage Shops" in the country by "USA Today" magazine. We've been featured in Vogue and Elle, and are proud to be longtime members of the Vintage Fashion Guild. We have provided garments for TV series, Hollywood films, and regional theater productions.

We work in a large studio at our 1850s Vermont farmhouse which holds our offices and warehouse, photography area, and a vintage clothing showroom with all our online merchandise. We have a great team of assistants and models, and we're fortunate that here in New England we still find incredible fashion treasures tucked away in closets and attics, just waiting to be rediscovered. When selecting merchandise, I choose beautiful, visually striking, well made garments, and it's all about the color, pattern, texture, print and proportion. We love the remarkable details in things made in the past and we hope you enjoy our finds, too!

--- --- ---
Our items are TRUE vintage, meaning they are at least 20 years or considerably older, they have been worn before, and may have minor flaws such as pulled threads, tiny spots or holes, etc. We have over 16 years of experience in the vintage clothing business and we do our best to note any flaws in the item description.

Colors may look different on different monitors or mobile devices. Please feel free to ask us questions or request more details, or photos, before purchasing.

We provide garment measurements according to standard tailoring methods, so please know your own body measurements -- and remember, a garment needs to be bigger than you are, so that you can move and breathe in it. For example, if your waist is 28 inches, a cotton (non stretch) dress should measure 30 inches in the waist, so you can bend, turn, sit, and are comfy wearing it! Usually vintage sizes on the original clothing labels are not comparable to modern sizes. Waists, shoulders and arm holes may be proportionately smaller than in modern clothing, and vintage shoe widths often run narrow. Feel free to ask us questions in advance, or request extra measurements, to be sure of a good fit. A great way to know, is to compare the measurements in the listing with a garment, or pair of shoes, etc., that you already own and that fits you well.

WE HAVE ONLY ONE OF EACH ITEM! We estimate the size to the best of our ability, but please always go by the garment measurements provided.

We describe any flaws we see in the Item Details section, and generally rate garment condition from 1) Poor/Distressed/Fair, 2) Good, 3) Very Good, 4) Excellent.

Most POOR to FAIR items will only be offered if they are being sold as a study piece, cutter, or fashion design example.

DISTRESSED means very worn, but still desirable as a fashion statement (ripped, torn, faded, but in a good way!)

GOOD condition means the piece is wearable but may have issues such as prior repairs, a missing button, or light stains that will be identified in the listing.

VERY GOOD means there may be some overall signs of prior wear, but it is still very presentable.

EXCELLENT condition means it's really great, it looks pristine, we don't find any flaws at all.

DEADSTOCK or NOS (New Old Stock) means the item was never worn or still retains original maker's sales tags. Deadstock items may still have flaws that occurred to the item while in storage.

Vintage clothing, by its nature, often has little imperfections or signs of wear which are not considered major flaws. Jewelry may show some tarnish or patina. Shoes may have light scuffs or have wear on the soles. Our items have a rich history and may be 25, 50 or even 100 years old. They are REAL vintage, and they are wearable and have character, but they are NOT the same as BRAND NEW or reproduction items.
Payment
We accept Etsy Direct Checkout where you can safely use the payment method of your choice including all credit cards and PayPal, and we accept Etsy gift cards. (Please only use the 'Other" payment option during checkout, IF you are an approved LAYAWAY customer, thank you.)

If you'd like us to HOLD an item for you, we can do that for 48 hours without a down payment. Reserves of longer than 48 hours require a non-refundable deposit of 33% of the item price. We also offer LAYAWAY on items over $100 with a similar 33% deposit and a conveniently scheduled payment plan! Items priced between $100-$200 may be purchased on Layaway with a 2 week payment plan - you simply pay the 33% deposit to hold your purchase, pay us another 33% in a week, and pay the balance due in 2 weeks time. Items priced $200-$500 may be purchased with a 1 month payment plan, and items priced over $500 are eligible for a 2 month Layaway plan. Just convo us to set it up!
Shipping
We will ship your order within 1-2 business days of receiving payment (unless we are away on a buying trip, in which case you will be notified of any shipping delay). We generally do not ship on weekends. If you need your order expedited, please convo us or write an order note with your request.

Orders are sent the most economical way, by 1st class Mail or Priority US Mail. We can also send a domestic order by UPS upon request and with any additional freight charges prepaid. We're sorry but we are not able to ship with FedEx or other carriers.

We are happy to ship internationally! But we can not falsify a US Customs form, it is illegal to do so. Please do not ask us to declare your purchase is a gift, or that it sold for a lesser amount, to avoid Customs fees. US sellers may face fines and penalties for lying on a Customs form.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS, PLEASE NOTE -- You are responsible for paying any applicable customs fees or import taxes in your own country which might be associated with receiving your Etsy purchase! The UK, in particular, charges VAT (value added tax) to you, to receive your imported item. Please be aware of these potential charges which are independent of Etsy and not in any way under our control.

IF you are OUTSIDE of the USA, please convo us when you place order with your telephone number, in case the Customs Office in your country needs to contact you about delivery.
