The Ivy Retreat is a place of peace and comfort; a haven for elegant pieces of clothing from a time when mass production wasn't all the rage. The concept for the shop was formed from a lifetime love of all things vintage mixed with a keen eye for pretty things that are forever glamorous and romantic. Specialized attention is dedicated to finding beautiful and timeless styles by scouring every inch of antique stores and estate sales. We will forever be on a quest for the most beautiful and ethereal gowns to add to the shop; it's what we enjoy most!
All items are one of a kind and restored to their best possible condition. We carefully shop for items that are in great condition. Imperfections are mended and stains are spot treated. Any imperfections remaining are carefully pointed out in the photos and described in the listings. Perfection is impossible with vintage, but that's what makes it special!
If you have any questions regarding the fit or condition of an item please contact The Ivy Retreat prior to purchasing. We will be more than happy to send extra pictures and give additional information if needed. The condition and style of all garments will be described in detail. Vintage items have been worn and loved, so tiny imperfections may be present and care is to be taken with their preservation.
