Rehab Vintage has been around since 2007 selling on eBay, and at various fairs and markets in the South.  We now have our own website and also a boutique on ASOS marketplace – just search ‘Rehab Vintage’. We carry a large selection of Women’s vintage clothing, shoes and accessories, all of which it’s not possible to have on line so if you are looking for something specific then please contact us as we may be able to help!




Please note that all items on this site are vintage which means they have been previously worn and loved and are NOT new! Most vintage items have some degree of wear and tear and I will always endeavour to point out any flaws in the descriptions and photos.




Each item has been given a rough size which is approximate, please check the measurements (which have been made myself for each item) before purchase as you cannot return items simply because they do not fit! If in doubt or in need of more measurements then please contact us first!  I do not go by the size on the label as most vintage sizes differ from modern ones.


Measurements are taken with the garment laid flat and doubled:

BUST: taken from armpit to armpit

WAIST: taken from the narrowest part

HIPS: taken from the widest part

LENGTH: taken from mid shoulder or top of garment to bottom hem





Please check measurements carefully (as stated above) as items are non returnable for not fitting! Items can be returned if they have been misrepresented in the photos or description and a full refund will be given including postage. If you need to return an item please obtain proof of postage as I cannot issue refunds for items lost or damaged in the post without it.




We value our customers and we are proud of our high positive feedback. We would ask that you please contact us first to resolve any issues before leaving negative feedback. Thank you!




We accept payment by Paypal only and immediate payment is required on all ‘buy it now’ items.




All items are sent by first class recorded/signed for delivery and are charged accordingly. Please take into account we do not make any profit on our postage! If you wish to use a different more economical service (eg standard 2nd class) then please contact us to calculate the cost before purchasing. If your item goes missing in the post using an un-recorded/signed for service it will be your responsibility to make a claim! If your item does get lost in the post (when posted using recorded delivery) you will have to wait 3 weeks for a refund as this is when Royal Mail class an item as lost.  We aim to post items out within 2 working days of receiving payment. Please note that items purchased on a Friday or Saturday may not be sent out until the following Monday (or Tuesday if there is a Bank Holiday).




Please contact us first if you wish to purchase an item from abroad so we can calculate postage costs.
