BUYING VINTAGE - Cult of Aphrodite Vintage


All our items are authentic vintage dating from 1980’s and back to 1950’s. They are pre- loved and therefore usually have some minimal wear consistent with age. 

Cult of Aphrodite Vintage carefully inspects each item and describes our items as honestly and as accurately to the best of our knowledge through both detailed descriptions and pictures. Any known minor imperfections such as seam separations, loose elastics, missing buttons, holes or other flaws that will not affect its beauty and wear-ability will be repaired by a professional seamstress to ensure the item is free from defects. Any flaws beyond minor and general signs of wear will be noted in the item’s description. 

For vintage Indian clothing, they usually have some natural imperfections such as bleeding and areas of fading from printing and stamping of the fabric. Please keep in mind that these are not considered as flaws.
