Frequently Asked Questions

What is the condition of my items?

I buy only items in excellent condition. In the unusual event that I purchase an item with a flaw, it's usually for extremely rare and old items and I will always mention the flaw in my listing.

Which social media platform do I use the most?

That's easy. Instagram !! Follow me there for daily updates.


Do I accept returns?

Usually only accepted if there has been a major misrepresentation of the garment. Otherwise, I will consider exchange or refund if you are very unhappy with the item. I trust that my buyers are honorable and are not just using "buyer remorse" as a reason to return an item.

For items that do not fit:
I work hard to measure my items accurately (laying flat, measurements doubled, in inches). If you are unsure about the fit please send me a message so I can give you more information. No returns on items that do not fit.

What is lead time for shipping and what services do I use?

Items ship in 1-3 business days, If you need something ASAP or rushed, please SEND ME A CONVO (sometimes I don't see the "note to seller" until a day later) to let me know and I will send your item out immediately.
