CONDITION & CONDITION RATING CATEGORIES
We inspect our items as carefully as possible and classify the condition of each item into one of the following categories. Any flaws will be noted in the description. Although we may inadvertently miss a tiny flaw, we will make every effort to address any and all condition issues.
All garments are laundered or dry-cleaned and repaired, when necessary, before being sold.
It is our goal to provide you with beautiful vintage clothing and accessories. The majority of our items are in excellent or very good condition. But, regardless of the rating, a vintage garment is not new. Please refer to the condition categories below to see how we arrive at our rating.
CONDITION RATING CATEGORIES
NOS – New Old Stock – Perfect item that have never been worn. The original tags are still attached to the garment.
EXCELLENT VINTAGE CONDITION– A well cared for item with no sign or very little sign of wear and no visible or very minor imperfections. Any imperfections will be noted in the garment description.
VERY GOOD VINTAGE CONDITION – An item with subtle signs of wear or a more noticeable imperfection that does not take away from the item’s appearance or wearability. All imperfections will be noted in the garment description.
GOOD VINTAGE CONDITION – An item that has noticeable signs of wear or flaws but can still be worn or used. All imperfections will be noted in the garment description.
FAIR VINTAGE CONDITION– An “as is” item with obvious wear or flaws that may still have value as a costume, as a pattern, for restoration, or for use in the study of historical styles and design elements. All imperfections will be noted in the garment description.
