About

A little background...

I've always had a fascination with all things old. As a kid you could often find me rummaging through my grandmother's closet begging her not to get rid of anything. It's a well known fact in my family that you "MUST ask Courtney!" before throwing anything out. Thankfully my interest in old things has become a little more fine tuned and I haven't turn into a hoarder!...yet.

Most of my life I've been a "Jack of all trades." searching for something that I'm not only good at, but passionate about. I've been a gymnast, a lover of all things cute and furry, a portrait artist, illustrator, and lifestyle photographer.

It all started with one sad looking dress. Then there was a spark, a lot of research, hard work, and out of nowhere I found my passion. There's just something about finding a dress that most people would overlook and restoring it to it's former beauty!

I'm happy to have finally found my niche. I'm lucky to get to use my love or art, photography, and new found sewing skills all at the same time!

So here's to all thing glorious and vintage. Cheers.

Etsy now limits the way we advertise shop policies, but these are the policies I stand by so please read carefully.

(Items from the 1930's and older are not eligible for return due to their sometimes delicate nature. Thank you for understanding!)

**Please note** As with most bridal gowns we would recommend getting a custom fitting and any needed alterations after you receive your dress. Remember....as long as the measurements are close to your own (or larger) it can be easily altered by a seamstress for a perfect fit!!

Additional policies and FAQs
Reserves/holds are available for 24 hours. If you need more than 24 hours please contact me. For reserves longer than 24 hours a non-refundable deposit is required. Please do not reserve an item if you are not 100% sure you will purchase it. An item can be reserved for a non-refundable deposit of 30% of the purchase price. This deposit is non-refundable, but can be applied to any item in the shop should you change your mind.

IMPORTANT: These are vintage dresses that can have some minor damage from wear and tear and/or simply from age. I do my best to select dresses with the least damage as well as fix or mend any rips/tears. Please look at these imperfections as "beauty marks" like I do!

Most dresses are carefully cleaned prior to sale. I work hard doing my research for appropriate cleaning methods for each dress. If I'm not confident in my ability to clean the item without damage I will note that the item needs dry cleaning.
