Our Delivery Service
You will have noticed that major retailers are able to offer things like free, same-day delivery. However, this kind of delivery policy has always felt a little wrong to us, as the carbon footprint of having so much choice is quite high.
We work with the UPS carbon neutral programme which aims to offset the items we ship with carbon credits. This means that for every tonne of CO2 a package produces in transportation, an equivalent amount of CO2 is saved by a verified emission reduction project somewhere else in the world.
To reduce our carbon footprint, we will post on Tuesdays and Thursdays instead of posting daily. This is our little bit towards achieving a slower, more sustainable lifestyle.
In the event of any issues with our chosen provider we will find an alternative arrangement to ensure you receive your parcel on time.

Vintage items may come with minor flaws due to pre-loved wear. We love imperfection, it makes things different and unique. Please be comfortable with this stamens before purchasing.
We launched the business with no returns, however after much feedback we are prepared to trial returns within the UK and Ireland only, to encourage customers to feel confident and more comfortable about their purchase. We will trial a 7 day return policy. Customers must email us and provide a reason for return. The item must be returned within 7 days of receipt of the parcel from us.
We would also like to ask that customers purchase no more than 2 items at a time. This policy is to help us manage our stock. As small business owners and with just 1 of everything, stock being out in the post costs us dearly.
We appreciate our customers have been asking us to try returns, and therefore we have listened. We hope this makes you all happy.
It is the customers responsibility to return all items as you received them. Please return all items in the original packaging. Please ensure all items are sent by UPS tracked or Royal Mail 2nd class signed for.

We will always try to be as accurate as we can with sizing. We measure all the vintage pieces we discover. In some cases, the items will have size labels on which we will mention in the product description. In some cases UK sizes have changed over the years, so we will suggest the size we think the item fits based on today's sizing and measurements.
Please understand some items will come with no size label at all. The label may have been removed at some time in the past, or may never have had a size label.
We try to be inclusive in all the decisions we make.While we try to source as many sizes as we can, it is not always easy when trying to stick closely to our vision. We welcome any feedback.
