Donna Flower Vintage is a vintage store. As such the items you are buying are in used and vintage condition, not new. We endeavour to describe the condition fully so that you are aware of any issues the garment or fabric may have.
For those of you confused about the amounts available, and how to order, here is an example. If the fabric is sold in half metre increments and there are 5 available then there is a total of 2.5 metres to purchase. If you wanted 1 metre you would put 2 in the amount box when ordering. Other fabrics will be sold in the measurements listed.
CLOTHING & MEASUREMENTS
As vintage clothing is sized differently to todays sizing, we measure certain aspects of the garments and then give an estimation based on a universal chart.
We measure the bust (armpit to armpit), waist and usually the length of the garment. For men’s clothing we measure the chest, neck, arm length and inside leg.
To ensure the clothing will fit you we measure in inches and centimetres. The bust measurement, which we call armpit to armpit, is the widest part of your chest, the waist is just above your tummy button. If you have any further sizing questions about any garment please contact us.

We are asked on a daily basis if we buy directly from the public. All items in the shop are sourced by ourselves, however we will buy from the public on some occasions. We are very specific about what we stock and everything is hand picked and selected by us.
The following criteria applies for anything you would like us to consider:
All clothing and accessories must be Pre-1970’s
Any fabric must be Pre-1980’s. We only buy printed fabric.
All items must be in a wearable condition. We are willing have repairs and cleaning done on certain items but this will of course reflect on the price we are willing to pay.
We do NOT accept fur coats.
If your items meet the above criteria please email us at (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call us (07896 922694) to arrange an appointment for us to look at your items.
We cannot guarantee that we will buy items once we have seen them but please don’t be offended. We buy and sell seasonally and are looking for particular things at certain times. We know what sells well and sometimes even the most stunning item simply doesn’t have a market at the time.
We regret that we cannot accept anything brought into us with no prior appointment.
