Now and Then – designer dress agency and vintage boutique sells vintage and preloved modern clothing. from the past to the present – we just want to keep the good stuff in circulation!
Our stock falls into two overlapping categories – designer and vintage. What we look for in an item is good design, quality and condition. It is the merit and provenance of an item which counts. Anything from a 1920s beaded dress to a 1940s homemade frock to a 1950s cocktail frock to a 1960s Biba or Ossie Clark original, a 1970s maxi dress, 1980s Chanel jewellery or a Chloe, Erdem, Gucci or Miu Miu item purchased last week.
I hope it goes without saying but we do not stock fakes. This means I sometimes spend a significant amount of time researching items. However, if I ever get it wrong or anyone can ever offer any information about an item which is offered for sale please do let us know – either by a comment on the blog or through the Contact Us page at www.nowandthencollection.co.uk
It is important that as well as having design and quality integrity the items are clean and in good condition. No “vintage” odour in our boutique!
We take in items on a sale or return basis. Generally the split is 50/50 as it is with almost all dress agencies. If you would like to know more please have a look at the SELL section at http://www.nowandthencollection.co.uk . Working in this way means that our stock does not become stale. We constantly receive new items throughot the week and aim to get new stuff onto the shop floor and the wesite www.nowandthencollection.co.uk at least twice per week.
