Will you get sold out items back in?


Generally our vintage items are one of a kind and so we are unable to restock these pieces. Once a unique vintage item is sold, we do keep it up for a while so that our customers can get a sense of the pieces that we look for and love. These sold items are also special pieces of history that serve as a great source of visual inspiration for stylist and fashionista's.




How often do you add Vintage to the site?


Fashion Fridays! Go live on our IG story on Friday's weekly/ bi-weekly. Items that are not sold from the storyin 24 hours will be added to the websites "Closet" so shoppers won't miss any gems! We are always on the hunt to bring new looks to our clients! You never know what you will find so please check back regularly!




Has the garment been washed before I purchase?


Most of our products have been steamed prior to packaging; however we do not pre-wash our garments. Washing clothes is a controversial subject in vintage. People endlessly debate the merits and dangers of washing vs. dry cleaning. We suggest you look at our Vintage Care Guide or Hanger Method tab to decide how best to clean your vintage.
