Here's a few handy tips to guide you before buying vintage clothing from RetroVertigo Vintage.

DOs

  1. Have a wardrobe ram packed with cool vintage
  2. Be aware that when vintage clothing is stated as in good condition it may have small imperfections, but that's the nature of vintage baby! Imperfections = style
  3. Read item descriptions thoroughly!
  4. Chuck on a pair of Rayban's to compliment that new vintage jacket you just bought!
  5. Check the measurements or ask if you need anymore taken!
  6. Enjoy life, laugh and be laid back.
  7. Ask us if you can't find what you're after. We will try our best!
  8. Realise the stuff we sell is not an easy thing to get our hands on, love it the way we do.
  9. Contact us if you have any queries BEFORE and AFTER purchasing.
  10. Check out what we've got for sale right now - Retrovertigo Vintage eBay Shop

DON'Ts

  1. Expect anyone to be wearing the same item of clothing as you, as vintage is generally unique.
  2. Miss out - if you want something buy it or make sure you win the auction as we can NEVER guarantee to get the same item in stock again. Remember Vintage is Unique!
  3. Forget to tell your friends where you got your cool new vintage item from. (Retrovertigo)
  4. Expect to look silly - if you like an item of clothing wear it with pride - you're bound to look hot!
  5. Forget to add us to your favourite sellers
  6. Walk out of the house without your trousers on
  7. Leave negative feedback, it's pointless as any situation can be resolved amicably :)
  8. Forget RetroVertigo Vintage loves you!
  9. Be tight fisted and get outbid at the last second! You'll regret it later, Promise!
  10. Buy from Chain stores - Get some INDIVIDUALITY Baby!!
