I love buying stuff on Etsy, hence the reason I thought it about time I opened up my own little place to help fund my habit! At least this way I can have the delight of buying super lovely stuff, being its custodian for a time and then sending it back out into the world and into your safe & loving hands. I lurrve searching out vintage bits and pieces, and it's the cat's miaow to share my delightful finds with fellow Etsyians.


Mint: it looks brand spanking new!
Excellent: previously worn or used with no notable flaws
Good: previously worn with minor noted flaws, though still wearable
Fair: numerous noted flaws, possibly wearable with care or after repair
Poor: damaged beyond repair, could be fashioned into new item


Note: I wash items using Ecover (, a natural plant-based laundry powder for sensitive skin.


Vintage items are delicate and should be handled with care. Please handwash scarves and garments of clothing in cold to lukewarm water with a soap/detergent designed for delicates. For bigger garments (coats/dresses), consult a professional clothes cleaner. Spot clean bags with a damp cloth.

Thank you, kittens! x Claira

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
Refunds and Exchanges - please contact me!

Please make sure you read the entire item listing information, especially for garment measurements. If there's a problem, or if you think I've described something horribly, then please contact me and we can try to sort it out. Please remember that all items are vintage and have previously been used, so some amount of wear is to be expected.

If something does need to be returned after we've exhausted the first option, then make sure I know to expect it and please also keep proof of postage. Returns are sent at your own expense. I will refund you the item price in full.
PLEASE NOTE: Payment is expected within three days. I'll contact you when this time has expired just to double check how things are at your end, and will gladly allow you some more time if needs be. If you could let me know if you're in any way delayed in making payment that'll be much appreciated!

I accept and prefer payments by credit/debit card through PayPal. I can possibly accept other types of payments, please contact me first.

UK Buyers - I can accept cheques and postal orders, please contact me first.
Please note that I try and reuse packaging materials, boxes and envelopes where possible, not only for eco-friendly reasons, but to keep shipping costs as low as possible for you.

I usually manage to post items within 24 hours on week days, I know how deeply keen you are to get your stuff so don't fret - I'll scamper down to the post office as soon as I possible can. Please do allow a couple of days leeway though - I don't always manage to catch the post office half-days on Wednesdays and Saturdays. I will let you know as soon as your item has shipped.

I ship everything First Class/by Airmail and obtain proof of postage.

UK Buyers - please allow up to five days for your item to arrive. The Royal Mail are usually really good around my way, but sometimes things can get a little delayed along the way.

International Buyers - Please allow up to three weeks for your package... often things get there within ten days, but as the above, there can be odd delays along the way.
Additional policies and FAQs
RESERVING ITEMS: I will happily put items on reserve for you while you make your mind up, however, as I make my living through etsy I can only put items on reserve for a maximum of five days.

Smoke free home. Please note, however, that I do have both a cat and a dog, so avoid buying if severely allergic.
