This is really pretty. The description said "pottery" so I expected it to feel more like ceramic, but I really don't know much about pottery. At any rate, the colors are very pretty, and I am very happy with the purchase.

A little bit bigger than my size but it goes with the style.

Recycling History - Everything old is new again.
I first got into vintage clothing in my teens, at the local "Second Hand Rose". They had a vintage section and I found the most amazing items there! I loved how unique and well made the pieces were. You could tell there was something different about the mint green 1940's blouse I wore to school when grunge was the latest fashion .

Frequently asked questions
All clothing measurements are taken laying flat, from resting point to stretching point (if available). Bust, waist and hip measurements have been doubled.
*Please allow yourself a bit of wiggle room for a perfect fit.
*The size given (Fits Like:) is only an estimate and often vintage items fit differently than modern sizes.
*If you are unsure about the fit of an item, you can compare my measurements to a garment that you have in your closet to ensure a proper fit - make sure to double your bust, waist and hips.
Gift wrapping and packaging
Unless otherwise specified, all clothing items are wrapped in acid free tissue paper and are sent in a recycled poly mailer envelope, padded envelope or cardboard box.
Any breakable or delicate items are treated with extra care, wrapped in tissue paper, recycled bubble wrap and finished with "FRAGILE" stickers on the external packaging.
All jewelry purchases are wrapped in decorative tissue paper and placed in an organza pouch, ready to gift!
As each vintage item has it's own care instructions, I suggest hand washing or dry cleaning any questionable fabrics to get the most life out of your purchase.
Most polyester, solid color nylons and already washed cotton items can be washed in the washing machine without any problems.
