• RETURN POLICY
We accept returns for store credit or exchange only. Please contact us as soon as possible if you wish to return an item. We will provide you with a return authorization number which must be marked on the outside of your package. Returns must be postmarked back to us within 7 days of the delivery date, return shipping to be paid by buyer. Store credit will be issued for the purchase price of the item excluding shipping charges, and is valid for 1 year from the date of purchase. Items must be unworn, unwashed and in original condition when received. Items received without a return authorization number or postmarked past the return shipping deadline will be returned to sender. Clearance/sale items are considered final sale and are not eligible for return.
• BUYING VINTAGE
Each piece in our shop is authentic vintage (20 or more years old). Like most pre-owned items, vintage garments will inevitably have some degree of wear. We carefully inspect every item before adding it to our shop and always disclose any notable condition issues in the item description. All items have been washed or steam cleaned, depending on fabric specifications.
• FIT & SIZING
We provide the original vintage tag size, an estimated modern size and complete measurements for each item. Since clothing sizes have changed throughout the decades, the most reliable way to tell how something will fit is by checking the measurements. We recommend comparing the given measurements with your own measurements as well as with those of a similar garment you already own. Remember to leave some room for comfort and movement. For reference, the dress form shown in our photos is a modern size 4 and measures 33" bust / 26" waist / 35" hips.
• HOW WE MEASURE
Measurements are from taken seam to seam with the garment lying flat, then doubled for circumference where appropriate.
- Bust: across just below the armpit
- Waist: across smallest part of waist or across back waistband
- Hips: across fullest part of hips (8-10" below waist)
- Shoulders: one shoulder seam to the other
- Sleeve: top shoulder seam to cuff
- Length: top of garment to hem at longest point
- Rise: center crotch seam to top of front waistband
- Inseam: center crotch seam to hem
- Thigh: across thigh just below crotch
- Ankle: across leg opening at hem
- Sweep: across bottom edge of skirt
We are happy to reserve any item for 24 hours upon request. Longer holds can be arranged with a small deposit. Please inquire for details.
• CARE INSTRUCTIONS
We recommend following the instructions on the original sewn-in care label of your vintage garment. Sometimes a care label isn't present. In this case, dry cleaning or hand washing in cold water and hanging dry are usually the best options. Some items (denim, certain cottons) are machine wash/dry friendly. Use your best judgement and feel free to contact us if in doubt.
