Condition of Vintage and Heirloom Garments


All of our garments are identified in the product description as either:
•  New—never worn, but may or may not have manufacturers hangtags;
•  Nearly New—very gently worn; or
•  Vintage/Heirloom—garments from times past, generally dating from the 1880s through the 1960s, sometimes unworn, more often worn but still quite wearable.
Although we purchase high quality vintage and heirloom garments in excellent condition, upon close inspection, you may notice small flaws that you would not expect in a new garment, particularly areas of thinning fabric, tiny pinholes, occasional broken seams, or small spots or color variations. All the items we sell have been meticulously pre-spotted, washed in Dreft, and carefully pressed and they are ready for your little one to wear. We make necessary repairs by hand to preserve the garmentís integrity and the occasional button, ribbon, or trim replacement is done with an item of the same period. Please do not expect an heirloom garment to be in the same condition as something you might purchase today in a department store.

While the heirloom and vintage garments may appear more fragile or delicate than you are accustomed to, they were masterfully created 50 to 100 years ago with special skills that are today a dying art and they have withstood the test of time. Nearly all can be hand or machine washed using a gentle cycle and hung to dry. Youíll want to preserve many of these one of a kind garments for future generations!

Please be aware, however, that most vintage garments would not meet today's flammability standards for sleepwear. Please be extra cautious to ensure your little one's safety.
