when describing the items in my shop, i typically rely on the ebay guide as a system for indicating the condition of a garment.
here is that system.
*MINT – an item is as perfect and pristine as when it was originally made and shows no sign of wear (mint condition is rare for vintage clothing).
*NEAR MINT – an item shows only the slightest signs of wear.
*EXCELLENT – an item shows typical signs of wear due to occasional use.
*VERY GOOD – an item is considered wearable but has some surface flaws (staining or soiling, for example).
*GOOD –an item is wearable but cannot be returned to excellent condition even if repairs are made.
to see the complete guide to vintage clothing, provided by ebay, click here.
this information is helpful to vintage buyers and sellers. :)
from now on, i will include a link to the guide, so that customers will gain a better idea of the condition of the garment.
one more thing…FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER! as soon as a new item is listed in the shop…you’ll be one of the first to know!
as always…thanks for visiting barefoot & vintage!
