Vintage Condition Rating Chart

We professionally clean & repair all items as much as possible so we rarely sell anything in less than Excellent Condition - See chart below. All major flaws are mentioned in the items description. Once in a while we may miss small flaws such as minor loose seams, tiny holes or very small or faint stains. We are human after all & sometimes flaws can hide in folds & such. Small flaws that are not visible or do not effect the wearing of the item are not mentioned.

Please keep in mind that most of our items are 60 or so years old and will have normal typical vintage general wear from cleaning, age, etc.. unless it's listed as Mint Condition. We want you to be happy so remember, you can always return it.
