SELLING US ITEMS
YOU MUST CONTACT US FIRST TO BOOK AN APPOINTMENT OR WE WILL NOT BUY YOUR ITEMS.
Yes we do buy vintage clothes & accessories. We want to find your treasured items a new home who will love them as much as you have.
We are only interested in buying authentic vintage items from the 1970s and earlier for both men and women. This absolutely does note include anything new which is 'vintage style', as this is meaningless. If you are unsure of the era of your items, you can send clear, in focus photos to us at the email below.
Please get in contact with us in advance of turning up so we can devote time to you and your items. We can be contacted on 0131 228 8787 or carnivalevintage at gmail
Let me be very clear, if you turn up unannounced, I will not purchase your items. You must call within our opening hours, because I do not live in my shop! Please leave a message or email and I will get back to you.
We will clean all items anyway but please note we do not buy items with damage so your items have to be in good condition, without significant stains. And please NO MOTHS! Please do not bring moth or other insect affected items to us and risk our existing stock and livelihood.
If you want to tell us about the history of your items and include copies of any photos of the original owner, we would LOVE to hear your stories and we will make sure to pass these on to the new owner. This is the fun bit for us!
We buy items outright rather than working on a commission basis. This is mainly due to the potential risk of damage to items when they are tried on in a shop. I spend a lot of my time replacing zips...
