Hello, I'm Adeleine. Ullakko is Finnish for "attic", in honour of my Finn grandmother, Valerie Meimi, who brought me thrifting from birth, and sewed beautiful clothing from the fabric ends she found.

I've been devoted to vintage clothing throughout my life, studied historical fashion and costume, and wrote about fashion on my blog La Femme from 2005. My own collection became an oasis of quiet joy, and gradually evolved into a shop as I began selling select pieces on ebay. Here on etsy, I enjoy curating for others who share my love of vintage, featuring high quality, wearable pieces that suit a modern wardrobe. Antique jewelry is another intense interest of mine, and I have derived great pleasure from working with my customers to find their perfect engagement and wedding rings.

I find it inspiring that quality-made vintage pieces can be included in our wardrobes as part of a more mindful and sustainable lifestyle. To me, this is necessary for our environment and fellow humans, and also conveys appreciation for the work and style of those who came before us.

I hope you enjoy browsing at Ullakko, and please feel free to get in touch.

Frequently asked questions
Vintage Sizing & Condition

The sizing of vintage clothing varies widely, and is different from modern sizing. Please take careful note of the measurements provided in each listing, and compare with your own measurements taken over undergarments. It can also be helpful to measure a similar clothing item that fits you well, for comparison.

Please remember that most vintage clothing (and jewelry) has had a life before joining yours, and may show signs of wear. Any flaws will be noted in the description.

Shipping & Delivery

Items ship from Ontario, Canada and are dispatched 1-3 business days after receiving cleared payment. Any changes to this timeline will be posted at top of shop homepage. Feel free to inquire if shipping to your country isn't listed.

Please note Canadian shipping can take longer than US shipping. Allow 1-2 weeks for items to arrive within CAN, 1-3 weeks for the US, and 2-4 weeks for international addresses. If you need an item faster, please write in so that shipping can be calculated and your invoice updated.

My customers have NOT reported import fees applied to their parcels, but if this does occur, the fees are applied by customs in your country and beyond the control of this shop.

**ON residents must pay the provincial 13% HST tax**

Feel free, always, to write in about any particular item if you have questions prior to purchase. I’m happy to go over details with you.

Reserves & Layaway

Reserves are available for 24 hrs. If you need longer, please write to discuss timeframe. New items cannot be reserved within 2 hrs of listing. Reserves are a commitment to buy - please request one only if you are certain about purchase.

A 20% minimum, non-refundable deposit is required for layaway purchases. Items between $100-$300 must be paid off within 30 days; $300-$700 within 60 days; $700+ within 90 days.
