Please be prepared to make your payment within 48 hours of winning. If I do not receive payment within this time, or receive contact from the buyer concerning when to expect payment, I reserve the right to re-list the item, or make second chance offers. If payment has not been received after 4 days and the buyer has given no explanation, an Unpaid Item case will be automatically opened.

I aim to dispatch all items within 3 working days of cleared payment. Sorry, but as I do not drive and have a little one at home, I cannot guarantee a faster service as I can only get to a post office once or twice a week. I am however happy to offer a full variety of shipping options if you require quicker delivery. Please do contact me if this is the case. Please bear this in mind when bidding and when leaving your detailed feedback.

Items Included in the Sale: For the purposes of display, I will often use accessories/props in the photography of listed items. Only things expressly/specifically described/itemised in the listing are included in the sale.

Measurements: Any measurements given in the description are approximations, given to the best of my ability to assist the buyer in their decision to purchase. They are not necessarily exact. Refunds/returns will not be issued on items which the buyer feels are too big / too small etc or disagrees with the measurements given.

Mannequin: Virtually all of my female clothing items are modelled / presented on a mannequin. The mannequin is a size 8/10 mannequin, so if the item is a larger size it will be pinned to fit the mannequin.


To date I have a 100% FEEDBACK RECORD, no Negative feedback logged and I aim to keep that record! I pride myself on being as reasonable as possible in dealing with any problems and I’ll always do my best to leave my buyers happy.

If an item is received and it is not as described in the listing, I will ALWAYS OFFER A FULL REFUND upon return of the item. Proviso: A) Items must be returned via the same or better postage service by which they were dispatched. B) Buyers must notify me that they are unhappy and return the item to me within 7 working days of receipt.

If there are any other problems with the item, I will always endeavour to find a resolution that is fair and satisfactory for the buyer. Buyers should contact me voice any problems BEFORE LEAVING NEGATIVE FEEDBACK.

I always obtain proof of postage and I am happy to email buyers a copy of this if requested.


I am more than happy to ship Worldwide. It is the bidder’s responsibility to contact me BEFORE BIDDING, to ensure that they are aware of the overall cost before committing to a purchase.

Please note shipping costs include the cost of packaging.

As standard, I ship internationally by International Signed For Small Packets. A signature is required upon receipt of the parcel and delivery is expected to be made within 5-25 days (with a couple of weeks in my experience depending on location)

At the extra cost, I am prepared to offer international courier delivery should the buyer request it.  


Thank you for your patience and cooperation in reading through all this – you can now bid with confidence – BEST OF LUCK!!
