I wish Meghan would have indicated that the dress was home-made. When it said label "N/A" I thought it was just missing. If I wanted a dress made at home I would have made it myself. For $42 I expected a factory-made piece.

The dress is a vintage 1960's dress without a label, which is exactly what the description says. The buyer wrote to me, saying she had expected a new, factory made dress and asked to return the item. I told her I was more than happy to accept the return. Several days later she left this review instead of returning the dress. I have tried to contact her several times - to no avail. I am always willing to work with my customers and it saddens me to receive such a low review. The dress was accurately described and I was more than willing to give her a refund, upon the return of the dress - not sure what I could have done differently :-(

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 .
