About

Top Notch Vintage, Somerton, Somerset, UK TA11 7PY

Affordable quality vintage and classic clothing & accessories for gentlemen and women. Vintage and antique clothing revival, steampunk, theatrical costume & fashion. Victorian to 1980s including; Christian Dior, Valentino, Karl Lagerfeld, Emilio Pucci, Aquascutum, Laura Ashley, Gieves & Hawkes, Elizabeth Arden.

As a little girl I had every intention on becoming either a fashion or costume designer when I grew up. All my school books were covered in fashion illustrations all along the borders - then many years later after art college I used to trawl flea markets, fairs and auction house for all things vintage and Victorian to wear for my self.

I had so many Victorian clothes I began to organise costume events to share my passion and get more opportunity to dress up.

Now many moons later, I decided to start selling some of my collection and make it my full time job, so I still get to hunt for lovely items but I can also share my finds with you. And as for selling my Victorian collection - ahem - I promise I will get round to listing all that I have one of these days.

Suffice to say, I love vintage and antique costume and I hope you love what I have gathered.

Vintage clothes are secondhand and over 20 years old, antique are over 100 years old. My clothes will have been worn by someone at some point unless they are deadstock, which are unused old stock perhap still with the original shop tags. I do not make these items, they are originals from the period mentioned in the listing.

Thanks for shopping with DillyDandy. We are a bricks and mortar vintage clothing and accessories shop, for menwear and women's clothing from Victorian through to 1990s iconic and classic styles at: Top Notch Vintage, 14 Brunel Precinct, Somerton, Somerset UK, TA11 7PY.

The Etsy showcase is a tiny percentage of what we hold in stock so if you are hunting for anything specific do get in touch as you never know, I might just have one stashed away in your size!

I do love all of my items and try to stock very good condition, if it has any flaws I will do my best to represent - please read my condition guide so you are aware of the categories and what they mean.

Measuring, I measure the garment laid flat edge to absolute edge then double, which give the maximum, you will need to measure your own clothes to compare sizing.

I post via recorded and special delivery, granted it can be expensive but it guarantees proof of delivery and tracking which can be a godsend at times. I value my vintage treasures and consequently prefer to use a quality postal service to reflect that.

If you have any questions please ask as all sales are final.

Additional policies and FAQs
All items I sell are either vintage or antique. I have been careful to note any age marks, flaws, damage etc. in the item descriptions, but items are sold as seen.

Should you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me.

Vintage clothing is 20 years old or older and is therefore expected to have been worn and show some signs of its age and use. I list all marks and faults as I notice them, but there may be something subtle that I have missed, if so please forgive me. Mostly my items are in very good-excellent condition and wearable.

MEASURING TIP
Our clothing measurements are taken with garments laying flat on a table and taken from edge to edge. Chest measurements are taken from under the arm holes and doubled. The best way to see if an item will fit you is to take a similar one you own and measure it laying flat, then compare measurements. They do not need to be spot on, just similar. If you know your body measurements, remember that some garments especially blazers, suit jackets and non-stretch fabrics require a spare inch or so for movement room so it hangs right and you can move your arms and also in areas such as the hip for sitting down manouvres.

Please leave feedback, and remember this is my livelihood and anything negative hurts not only my business but my opportunities to grow and continue in business. I am very reasonable to work with, I generally go out of my way to help and make my customer's happy and will make any mistake or issue right as best I can...so please, be nice.
