Customer Care

Condition of garments
Vintage and retro items are one of a kind. Although in great condition please expect natural wear and age. Here at Bones Boutique we will try to give full descriptions so you know what to expect when you receive your beloved vintage piece. Please note that clothing could be in our concessions store but we will try to update you on the condition of the item if changed. All clothing will be laundered, steamed and repaired if needed with the exception of dry cleaned clothing, furs, leather and suede items unless mentioned otherwise. Be aware that vintage clothing can often have a musty odour which is expected with age. 
Description terms 
Mint: Perfect condition. Never been worn. Usually has original tags.  
Excellent: Slight signs of wear with noted flaws that do not comprise garment. This item has has been well cared for.
Good: Signs of wear with minor flaws i.e staining, fading, holes, loose stitching and repairs.
Fair: A wearable garment but repairs cannot bring the item back to excellent condition. However, collectible items are desirable. Flaws could add to the history of the vintage garment. 
Handle with care
Always read the washing label if available. 
Vintage clothing is best hand-washed to maintain its condition. Many retro fabrics can be very delicate and over time the material's condition deteriorates. If you don’t have time to wash by hand, check if your washing machine has a delicates option- some items can survive a cool machine wash and be air dried. We advise not to tumble dry. 
Store vintage clothes in a dry and dust free place. Do not store in plastic bags or containers as fabrics need to breathe. 
Authentic vintage
Most items are vintage but some may not from the era that they are designed to imitate. For example a lot of 70’s dresses can be styled to look like they are from the 1920's era. 
Each garment will be measured as accurately as possible. Please refer to the Size guide for more information. To avoid disappointment be sure to compare your measurements to that of the garment or pop into our shop to try on the clothing.
Remember, most vintage clothes can easily be tailored to fit your own body shape. 
Estimated sizes given will be UK size guide.
