Please understand that vintage clothing and vintage fabric have age to it, and even when in excellent condition, they show wear. They are not new items. Even the most cared for vintage items of clothing is likely to have some wear and tear and vintage pieces can commonly have tiny spots/marks, fading/yellowing, or pin holes.
I attempt to present all damage by describing and photographing it but sometimes little things get by me.

Please remember that colors photograph and can display differently depending on the camera and/or the computer. My items are sourced from a variety of venues including estate sales and auctions. Some are new, but most are pre-owned or vintage, so I have no way of knowing the complete history, or if the item has always been stored in a smoke or pet free environment (my home is smoke free, and pet friendly). But mistakes do happen from time to time. Some are new, but most are vintage, antique, or pre-owned.
