Please read our explanation of item condition and sizing (below) before you order. We want you to be happy with your purchase, so if you have questions, please ask before you order. We try hard to provide good customer service and we'll usually get back to you within 24 hours.

We're sorry, but in order to keep everyone happy, we had to make some changes to our return policy.

  • All items are sold as-is. Vintage clothing and collectibles almost always show some signs of aging, so unless otherwise noted, do not expect items to be completely flawless. We do our best to describe items. And because a picture does NOT tell a thousand words when it comes to vintage stuff, please, please ask questions! We are usually very quick to respond.
  • DO NOT RETURN ANYTHING WITHOUT CONTACTING US FIRST. If you return an item without authorization, we will not issue you a refund. Sorry, no exceptions.
  • YOU MUST CONTACT US within 5 days of receipt of item. Thanks to delivery confirmation, we know when you received the item. We will contact you with return information.
  • You must return the item(s) in the same condition it arrived to you or we will not issue you a refund.
  • International orders must be returned within 14 days.
  • You will be required to pay return shipping and insurance.
  • Shipping charges are not refundable nor will we reimburse you for return shipping.
  • Please note: Items ordered after Sept. 7, 2001 and returned will incur a $5 restocking fee. Exchanged items will not incur this fee.
  • Discounted and sale items can only be returned for credit or exchange.

Please ASK if you have any questions.


Most vintage and antique goods show signs of age. We do our best to describe and photograph each item's condition the best we can. Our items are inspected for wear and breakage. Here's how we categorize an item's condition:

  • MINT (M): No flaws; perfect condition; may be unused, or slightly used with no visible signs of use.
  • NEAR MINT (NM): Almost mint, but slightly used.
  • EXCELLENT (EX): Very minor wear. No breakage or cracks.
  • VERY GOOD (VG): Wear detectable, but does not detract from the overall integrity of the item. May have several minor flaws.
  • GOOD (G): Significant wear and tear; flaws detectable.
  • FAIR (F): Major flaws throughout the piece.


SIZING. We try to take accurate measurements of our clothing. We go by measurement of garments LAID FLAT, not by the size on the tag. This is because sizing varies widely, and vintage clothing sizes tend to be smaller than today's sizes. We also provide an estimate of the size (small, medium, etc.) on the catalog pages to make it easier for you to find items. THESE ARE ONLY ESTIMATES - ALWAYS GO BY THE ITEM MEASUREMENTS! Make sure you know your measurements so you won't be disappointed if it doesn't fit! As a general rule, you should be about an inch smaller than the measurement of the clothing.

ASK us if you need additional measurements or have questions about sizing.


It's not always easy to get a feel for something sold online. We encourage you to contact us with any questions. We strive to provide excellent customer service and will respond promptly. That's why so many customers all over the world shop at CoolOldStuff.
