What do we mean by vintage? Are your items genuine vintage?
Vintage tends to be items dating from 1920s up to early 1980s. We and our lovely Buyers take great care over what we pick and we don’t “quick pick” – every item we source is carefully chosen, researched and labelled as accurately as we possibly can giving you not only a great product but a bit of vintage knowledge too!
Vintage sizing is difficult to get right. How do I get the right size for me?
We totally understand! Measurements are taken with the garment laid flat and we try to give the modern day size (approx.), bust, waist, hips and length of every item where relevant and applicable. Refer to our Sizing & Condition Guide for further information.
Are we located in a shop or concession store?
Not at the moment but we never say never! You can browse Alexandra Vintage online, keep an eye out on our website Blog or follow us on Facebook and Twitter for details of when we’re involved in vintage fairs throughout the year.
Every item is carefully researched for both its era and style, however it is sometimes a hard job identifying the exact era. In this instance we will be clear with these items listed by referring to the item and its era as a “style” or “inspired” by piece. Vintage carries so much history – that is after all what vintage is – and we price accordingly to each of the items’ condition and quality.
