Beware!! Purchase disputed with Etsy and an unresponsive seller! I ordered this item over 3 weeks ago and never heard from the seller after they took the money. Not once, even after a polite inquiry about when to expect it. I opened up a case with Etsy and received my refund today (thank you Etsy). I read such great reviews for this shop; too bad. I have since been in contact with other sellers to find another purse...all of which have been wonderful. I would advise spending your hard earned money with a shop that values you as a customer and won't scam you.

So sorry! I was out of the country and thought that I had turned my shop on vacation mode. . . also for some reason I did not receive an email when this item was purchases so it is a case of things slipping through the cracks. This is the first time in 10 years that this has happened and I will not let it happen again!

World Traveler, Vintage Collector

Hello. My name is Jess. I have been collecting, wearing and adoring vintage clothing since my best friend took me to Goodwill for the first time when I was 10. I also like to make things. After graduating from college with a degree in Fine Art and Art History, I started screen printing and sewing, combining my love of shopping & fashion with art & design. In 2005, I started Wanderlost Clothing-- a line of handmade clothing and screen printed t-shirts. The name Wanderlost comes from the famous quote "Not all who wander are lost," because at the time I was doing a lot of traveling. While traveling, I was shopping at every thrift store, garage sale and flea market I could find, slowly amassing a huge collection of vintage. Even if I found something great that didn't fit me, I felt compelled to buy it. Eventually, my collection of vintage clothing, jewelry, hats, shoes and housewares grew so large that I had to move it into a storage space. I then decided to create this site, to "spread the love".

Last year, I started a local group here in Madison, Wisconsin called "Vintage Madison". We are a collective of vintage shop owners, on-line sellers and collectors who organize events around town. Our first event was a vintage Fall Fashion Show, and most recently we put on the first annual Vintage Prom.

Nowadays, I still travel as much as possible, and my vintage collection is still growing. I feel very lucky to be doing what I love and very grateful to all of my customers who make this site possible. I hope you find something special and unique!

Refunds and Exchanges
I'm sorry but I can no longer accept returns, especially due to fit. Please review the item description, measurements, photos, etc. carefully before purchasing and contact me with any questions/ concerns. The best way to know if an item will fit well is to find a similar piece in your wardrobe, lay it flat, and measure it at the bust, waist, hips, etc. (remember to double the measurement for widths).

If you feel an item has been terribly misrepresented, please send me a convo and we will discuss options. I want to earn positive ratings and will try to accommodate unhappy customers.
