Due to the one off vintage nature of each piece and the small size of the business (I am just a one woman show!) I can only accept returns in exchange for shop credit, please check the Shipping and Returns page for more info and contact me with any questions.
Any major flaws are listed in the product description so please check this over thoroughly before purchasing, as well as all measurements and guide sizing. I strongly suggest checking the measurements given against your own measurements, or a piece you love the fit of so you know that it will have the desired fit perfect for you!
Please remember these pieces are at least 30+ years old and will often show small signs of wear and/or age. This is part of the charm of owning a unique vintage piece and is a testimony to the history and story that belongs only to that one very special garment. I only sell vintage I truly believe in, which may include small blemishes, that being said, I do make sure to check them over thoroughly and will only sell items in good wearable condition!
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions

IMPORTANT INFO FOR INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS
Please be aware that as of the 1st January 2021 purchases from the UK are subject to customs and duty charges (due to Brexit) which vary from country to country. Please check these on your government website before making your purchase. They are against the total amount at checkout, including shipping. It is the law to pay these charges and is your responsibility to do so upon agreeing to purchase from a business in the UK. I cannot change the amount of customs and duty due and note that this really is a massive inconvenience but I'm afraid there is nothing I can do about it.
