**Many of the items I sell are vintage and come from my own collections, they have been used and pre-loved and will usually show signs of this. I love the fact that someone has used them and they have history but if you like new, my items are probably not for you. I try to detail all flaws, marks etc. but please look at the photographs as they form part of the description**
