Did not ship on time, however, the vendor was going thru some health issues so it was all a misunderstanding.

vintage can save the planet

I see pieces of vintage as either an existing piece of art or a potential one. When I come across a piece at a flea market, estate sale or thrift store I suddenly become the caped crusader of unappreciated, undervalued vintage and I feel its my job to save them from their captivity.

The older I get the greener I get. So now its not just the vintage pieces I am trying to save but all the vintage fabric that sit lonely on the shelves of someones garage or a church thrift store bin. Who else but me would buy that neon polyester fabric? One touch the fabric comes to life and I see a model strutting down the runway in one of my designs using that crazy fabric. Its fabulous!

As much as I worship at the altar of fashion, I just can't get with fast fashion, high priced luxury items...I truly believe that by only shopping for sustainable eco-fashion & vintage we can make a huge difference in the world. :)

Sweet Rocket 99 Vintage is a labor of love. As a stylist and fashion designer, I have collected vintage clothing for over twenty years. I view my collection as a work of art. I not only restore pieces but I upcycle fabrics and designs to renew and create new garments with a modern appeal. I believe that wearing vintage means you a part of an eco-concious movement to stop the unneccessary fabrication of synthetic materials and to treat fashion as you would pieces of art. Vintage pieces are personal statements about your individual style that sets you apart from the people who shop at corporate malls and superstores. Vintage fabrics and designs are whimisical, gorgeous, fascinating and legendary.pieces of our history. When I collect pieces I don't follow trends, I seek out garments that will still be chic in a century from now. Classic garments with timeless appeal is our motto. I hope you like our store. Thanks for reading this. xoxchristina

Our vintage items have been hand selected they are preloved and range in age. Some items are up to fifty years old and there will always be a small amount of wear. However, nothing is unwearable, or stained. If item has significant holes or flaws I will always note it.
Please, email if you have any questions. I do not refund unless there a mistake on my part.
We try to ship most items within 24 hours of payment, but we have full time jobs that sometimes gets in the way of this. Our official policy is to allow five-10 days for delivery. For international-it depends on the country. Sometimes it takes a week sometimes a month. i have no control over it. If you need something for an event or just want it sent express mail please not on the note to seller. Please keep in mind we are an independent seller and ships Monday through Friday, except on holidays.

We ship Domestic orders via USPS Priority Mail. Alternative shipping methods are available. Please Convo if you’d like standard mail, fed ex or UPS. If your item does not fit in the flat rate box or you have paid less for shipping than the cost we will ship it first class. We highly recommend purchasing insurance. Declining insurance is at your own discretion.

We ship most International orders via USPS First Class Mail. Alternative shipping methods are available. If an item costs more to send than you were charged you will be billed for the remaining balance. I will contact you with the amount and if it is not agreeable to you than I will refund you for your purchase and cancel the transaction. I now require all international packages to purchase tracking.
We ship the most affodable way as possble.

PLEASE NOTE! Items shipped internationally usually take between 7-14 days but occasionally may be held at customs for up to 2 months. If you are not OK with this please refrain from buying. This is something that is unfortunately out of our hands.

I am sorry but I do not do refunds unless there has been a gross misrepresentation of the item. In some occasions I will to an exchange for store credit depending on varous factors like if you are a returning customer, if the condition was markedly different than represented etc. I'd advise customers to be polite when communicating with me-it goes a long way. There are occasions when people receive something and they don't like how it fits and want to return it. I wish very much that I could accommodate everyone but I just couldn't run a recycled vintage store that way. Best thing to do is to check the measurements carefully and examine the pictures closely so you know exactly what you are getting. In some instances, the clothes might smell "VINTAGE' and it can be detected on a picture-yes. All clothes that are machine washable I wash before selling-however, I cannot afford to dry clean every item because of the smell. It's an easy task to take an item to the dry cleaned and get cleaned and you should expect that when buying vintage. These items have held up for over 20 years and will last 20 more- a dry cleaning worthwhile investment.

We accept PayPal only at this time.
IVintage Sizes
Depend on accurate measurements, rather than the Approximate Size or Actual Size for determining fit. The best way to insure a good fit is to compare the measurements from this garment, to the measurements of a garment that you already own, with a similar shape and style. Remember! In vintage clothing, the garment may have been previously altered by a tailor.

Accessories not included.
Accessories and other clothing featured in our photos are NOT included with the auction, unless otherwise noted. Some items may be sold separately.

Some items are dry cleaned or laundered and will be noted as such. Otherwise, we recommend our customers wash or dry clean items before wear.

Trust: Feed back is important. It creates Trust. Thank you!
I use priority mail.For international: items that don't fit in the Small priority envelopes are sent first class mail. If you want it sent priority mail then please include the price of the Medium Priority box in your payment. If you'd like the item shipped via Fedex then please indicate on buyers note.
Refunds and Exchanges
We are not responsible for lost items. It is at the buyers discretion to pay for insurance and/or tracking.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you wish to purchase more than two items please contact me and I will calculate the most cost effective way to ship the items.
