Visit my eBay Shop  


Hello and welcome to my shop. 
I aim to provide a great service to all my customers and if I fall short of that goal, I will always endeavour to rectify any mistakes.
If you are happy with the product and service that I have provided then please leave me 5 stars in the detailed seller ratings as anything less than this has a negative impact on the fees that I have to pay for the service provided by e-bay.
Thank you in advance for your custom, without you all I would not have reached the position that I have achieved in the e-bay community.  I hope to be able to continue to provide a great service for some years. 




Please read the following details in conjunction with the sizing and condition tables below.  Please note that the size is assessed by measuring the garment laid flat and may contradict the garment label as vintage sizes may sometimes vary from their modern equivalent.  The length is measured from shoulder to hem and from the top of the bust to hem in strapless dresses.


All dresses with FULL skirts are photographed over a multi layered net petticoat which is not included in the sale and used merely to show the fullness of the skirt.
