Pristine, dimensional and nostalgic, all in one! With a sweet note from seller about shipping delay (which was minimal!). Very pleased with my purchase. Thanks so much!

Greetings!

I am here to offer as much help as I can prior to your purchase. Please don't hesitate to ask if something will work with your dress or if I think something will fit you. Send me photos of things you are trying to match, or your bust, waist, hip and height measurements for fit opinions.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
  • Check
  • Other Method
Payment
Payment is expected within three days of purchase. We are happy to reserve items for purchase at a specified date. We accept all methods of payment including PayPal, personal checks and money orders. We tailor layaway plans to individual customers upon request.
Shipping
I take the utmost care in packing and shipping all my vintage treasures. All items are shipped via Priority Mail within 1-2 business days. Items can be shipped more quickly if buyer covers Express shipping costs.

I happily ship to International customers using USPS Priority Mail International. I do not falsify customs forms and your country may charge you a value added tax for which you are responsible.
Refunds and Exchanges
In fifteen years of selling items over the internet, I have never offered returns unless I made some error in the listing. So far it's happened three times. Flaws are noted and photographed when needed or available upon request. As a seamstress I excel at measuring garments, recommend you measure something of similar style and am always happy to consult you on how something might fit.

As I specialize in items from 1968 and before, everything is sold as found in used condition.

Should I make an error, returns are accepted with notification of the problem, if the customer agrees to pay shipping to return the item to me. I do not offer partial refunds. A 20% restocking fee applies unless other arrangements have been previously made.

I highly recommend asking any questions you may have prior to purchase. The more information you provide me, the easier it will be to make sure your purchase will meet your needs. If you have a problem with your purchase, please contact me PRIOR to leaving feedback to see if there is something I can do to assist you.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please note that our vintage clothing is shown on models who fit it properly. Any pinning or modification to fit will be noted in listing.
