Recent customer feedback 

Oh my goodness, I can't tell you how pleased I am!!! This has been my favourite cardigan for years, and my original has been washed and mended many times. This one you have just sent is the same size, and if this has been worn before, I am very surprised!!! The condition is fantastic. I have not ordered from you before, and I don't normally buy anything second hand, but I am delighted. Many thanks, I am truly a happy customer! ~ Janice

I was looking up Jacqmar scarves and came across your website by chance- and was bowled over! I don't wear vintage clothes but you almost persuaded me to change my mind. One of the best websites I've seen in ages. ~ Sue

(After a long-delayed Royal Mail delivery) When the postman knocked on Thursday, I was not expecting it to be the boots! They arrived after all this time. My daughter loves them. Thank you for your great customer service! I’ll be shopping more with you soon. ~ Janet

Thank you so much for my beautiful dress. Love it. ~ Carmen

The jumper arrived today, it’s great. Thanks for the speedy service. ~ Sheila

Just wanted to say thank you for sending my order so quickly and so beautifully wrapped. I ordered an Emma Hill hat and a Jaeger silk dress both of which are in immaculate condition and I love them. I don`t do social media and I`ve recently made a conscious decision to buy second-hand clothes from people in the UK and to ignore Amazon. Have managed to do that for a year now. I found your site via White Rose and Thorn and hope to buy more of your very reasonably priced items in the future. ~ Anne

The jacket has arrived and it is beautiful and a perfect fit too. It reminds me of a liberty print from my youth. Thank you. ~ Anna

Just to let you know that the parcel arrived today. As usual, beautifully packaged, and I’m delighted with everything. It’s a pleasure doing business with you and in case (unlikely!!) I don’t buy anything from you before Christmas may I wish you and the team a very Happy Christmas and prosperous 2022. Thanks again. ~ Sheila

Just wanted to say Thanks for the bag, it is excellent quality, just as described, and the service was fantastic, arrived here in the islands after just a few days. Brilliant, thank you!  ~ Liz

Just to let you know the blouse arrived ok. It’s fabulous I love it! No doubt I’ll be buying more items soon. ~ SB

Thank you for my order. The skirts are so beautiful! ~ Julie

I just wanted to say what a fabulous selection of items and all reasonably priced. It’s becoming a rather expensive few days!! I look forward to continuing to shop with you as I’ve worn second hand/vintage all my life. ~ Sheila

When you find a bag as cute as this, you just have to take it for it’s first outing 😍
I bought this beautiful Gladstone style bag from @frockery which is a small business that sells vintage, retro and pre-loved clothing and accessories.

— Sharon Reid (@sharonreid24) March 8, 2021

 I wanted to leave feedback on both of my orders. Both items are beautiful and well worth the price and your descriptions are spot on. ~ Lynn

Just wanted to email and tell you how amazing all the clothes and accessories I ordered from you are. They all fit very well although the dogtooth suit jacket is slightly large so will get it tailored when shops open. I am so excited to have finally found an affordable and genuinely vintage clothes shop! I am sure I will be placing several orders.  ~ Jess

Hello Alison, thanks so much for my new wardrobe purchase -- I'm looking forward to wearing them! ~ Uma

I have just received the magnificent coat and it is a perfect fit. I am delighted with my purchase and it was worth paying a bit extra for next day delivery. Thank you for dealing with the postage so promptly. ~ Anna

My dress is absolutely gorgeous - love it to bits!  And totally worth the wait to see it...Thanks so much again! ~ Lisa

I stumbled onto your website whilst searching for a particular item online. I have since fallen in love with your store and I keep finding beautiful little gems every time I browse. My recent purchase was the two vintage cardigans. They arrived well packaged as always. The quality was excellent and the detail exquisite. I can’t wait to style them this winter. Thank you, keep it up! ~ Natasha

Just a little message to say thank you properly for my first purchase from The Frockery. As well as the Traidcraft tunic top I'd hoped to one day re-find, it was lovely to randomly find a great little independent and family run business to buy it from. The communication by email was great, the dispatch of my order was really speedy, it arrived much quicker than I thought it would. The tunic itself was just as described and in a lovely condition. Thank you. ~ Angela

Earlier customer comments 

Dear Alison, the parcel has just arrived. It is a bit like Christmas and all so beautiful. Thank you. Take care and stay well. ~ Gwynneth x

Hello Alison. Many thanks for your prompt Delivery Service. I am, once again, 'Over the Moon' pleased with the Dress!!  Another FABULOUS item found on your online shop! I did take note that it was a Size 10 on site. I had hoped it would have been a 'small' Size 10, therefore, it is a 'wee bit' loose on top but nothing that I cannot cope with! It will be worn with the panache it deserves!! I hope you and your Team had a lot of fun with your Annual Frockery Eco-Fashion Challenge during this highly unpredictable February. Best wishes to you and your team ~ DL

Arrived in great condition and fast. Thank you ~ Jane

I just wanted to write a quick note to say thank you very much for sending my order so quickly. It arrived a few days after I’d placed it. Love both the jumper (which I wore to work earlier this week) and the belt. Happy New Year! Warmest wishes ~ Lynda

Hi, I received my dress today and I just wanted to say thank you. It is the most beautiful dress and it fits like a glove.

Thank you so so much I really can't thank you enough! ~ Daisy

Many apologies for not acknowledging the arrival, last Thursday morning (16 Jan), of my 'Fabulouso' Coat!!!  I am 'Over The Moon Happy/Pleased' with it!!  Having waited/searched for just the 'right one'....The Frockery came up trumps once again!!  I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!! ~ Denise

As I don't do any social sites, just wanted to say how impressed I am with "goodies" I send for and receive. Such an interesting site. By chance I came across "The Frockery". The packaging is very personal to the "goodies" that are packed well, with thought and care. Many thanks  ~ Judith 

Hi Alison and team! I wanted to say thank you for your usual fantastic service. Hope you are all keeping warm and hope you all have a peaceful and Happy Christmas! ~ Stephanie

Hi Alison, Just wanted to say thanks for the jumpers I ordered recently - they are super. I've worn the cream fair isle already, as Devon is bitter cold right now.

I am not a twittery facebooky person ... Thank you for promptly sending the tartan nightshirt to me. My wife loves it and would have bought it herself if it was on sale on the high street. It is in good condition, no sign of wear and nice colours. She is very pleased!   ~ Stephen

Thank you so much for the mohair cardi which i received today.  It is even better than the original.
Many thanks and good luck with your enterprise!  ~  Sallie (who needed to replace a much loved cardi)

All the garments fitted to my great delight and I was especially pleased with the velvet jacket.  ~  Jen

I intended sending this e-mail the same day that I received the top I ordered by Special Delivery, having only paid for standard. Thank you for that and for the very quick service overall.   As it happens, the top isn't quite right with the outfit after all but it's so unusual and really quite special that I'm keeping it anyway.  I sew myself (although not as well as the person who made the top way back in the 1960's, when I was a child!) and am very impressed.  ~ Cynthia

Loving the boots, thanks!  ~ Fiona

I ordered a pair of shoes at lunchtime on Monday and they’ve arrived already. Just 24 hours and exactly what I’m looking for. I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on your website for future purchases. Wishing you all a prosperous 2015. ~ Alison

Just wanted to write a quick thank you for sending the lovely grey cashmere jumper so quickly. Decided to keep it for myself to wear 'boyfriend style' rather than give as a Christmas present.  ~ Lynda

The frock and jumper have come and they are wonderful! Thankyou again for your support and emails. ~ Maxine (whose order was delayed in the Royal Mail system)

My word, the Christmas mail must be tailing off because your belts arrived this morning.  They are great, fit perfectly and look even better than in their pictures.  (Love the black velvet one).   Very pleased.  ~  Jenny

The Frockery is wonderful and I'm so impressed and pleased with your service :) thank you again x  ~  Elenya (viaTwitter)

Lovely jumper for the winter - will enjoy wearing it.  Hubby is eyeing it, so looks like we will be sharing. Thanks for the prompt receipt of it. ~ Susy

Your package arrived today, thanks so much.  I really like the fabric of the trousers, the brocade makes a nice change from plain old dull matt black. ~ J.R.

The skirt arrived today and I LOVE it! It is beautiful and exactly as you described it.  Very quickly delivered too.  Thanks for your great service once again.  ~  Monica

Sorry for the delay in contacting you, but just to let you know that the belts arrived safely, and THEY FIT!!!!!  I had been meaning to order them ages ago, but never got round to it. It's difficult to buy shorter belts these days, they are so long that I have been buying coloured covered elastic bands (the type you use for pony tails) to use as belt loops. ~ Jenny

Another fabulous vintage frock has just delivered from @frockery! Think Abigail's Party, with more than a nod to Margot from the Good Life. ~ Cecilia (via Twitter)

Received my orders this week and both are lovely as always; the cashmere polo neck especially feels so soft. ~ SD

I just wanted to say how much I love my dress! It fits like a glove and I'm so pleased with it . It looks like it must be hand made as there are no labels of any kind, is there a story behind it do you know? It really is an absolute gem and I'm thrilled so thank you. ~ Tess

Just to let you know that the blouse arrived safely. Yes, it is a wonderful colour isn't it. I plan to wear it with the crushed velvet teal coloured skirt I bought from you. Ironing it will be challenging though! ~ GR

Just wanted to let you know that I received my shoes and are very happy with them. I'll definitely be ordering from you again :) ~ Martine

Look what I got from the fabulous @frockery ~ Fiona (via Twitter)

Absolutely love the dress! Xx ~ Evee

Received the skirt today - it looks super. Now added to my collection of lovely things purchased from you. ~ Susie

I would like to say how delighted I am with the Chinese jacket I ordered from your website. A beautiful garment. Thank you for your prompt, efficient service. A lovely website. I have recommended you to interested friends. ~ EMT

The three blouses are great (especially the chiffon black one with the sparkly buttons) and I shall enjoy wearing them. The white frilly one with buttons at the back is certainly challenging to do up isn't it. ~ Jenny

I just want to say thank you. I received my Peggy French dress and coat today, its beautiful, will need to be taken in a bit but I have an amazing dressmaker who can do that for me. The colour is lovely and the cut and style just amazing. I have bought this for my wedding outfit when my partner and I get married later this year. I just love 60's vintage clothing and wear it whenever I can or clothes that look 60's. I much prefer the clothes of that era, they were just amazing, nothing today even comes close. So thank you very much again. ~ Susan

The bag is lovely, thank you. ~ Christine

Delighted with both (dresses), which fit perfectly. That's this year's weddings sorted! :) ~ Sian

Hi Alison just to let you know the boots turned up today and I am very happy with them thank you so much. ~ Elizabeth

Thank you so much, I am utterly delighted with my Vintage 70s Jean Varon (John Bates) black maxi dress. The quality and condition and it fits perfectly as though it was made for me, I cannot thank you enough for the speedy delivery, I only wish you had a few more items in stock just like it. I love the other Jean Varon dress you have great style again, but for the more willowy frame you cannot wear large florals, (believe me I have thought about it long and hard, but I would not be able to get away with such a large expressive pattern, which is such a shame. I will keep checking your website for similar items with a less flamboyant large pattern, but would love to hear from you should you get anything in stock. I cannot thank you enough and will certainly recommend you. ~ Charlotte

Thank you so much for the lovely salmon pink cocktail dress which arrived promptly. I am delighted with it and will be shopping with you again!  ~ Fiona

I received my silver grey faux fur jacket on Saturday. I am so delighted. Many thanks . ~ Yvonne (who sent a hand written card, thank you!)

I'm wearing the black and apricot Pearce Fionda dress to a party on Saturday and it looks really stunning.  (I just took it in at the waist and hips and sewed on a popper at the front and it looks fab.  A bit of tweeking is no problem, is it). ~ Jenny

I've just got back from my grandson Alex's christening where I wore my Reiss coat and felt like a million dollars.  Thank you so much.  It came up like new from its visit to the cleaners and the pleats at the back looked fab.  It's a lovely piece, I can't thank you enough. ~ Janie

Thank you for the earrings.  They are lovely and I shall very much enjoy wearing them. ~ Jenny

I always will be [a loyal customer] as you sell the best stuff online. I look forward to purchasing it and wearing it and everyone always ask me where I get my stuff from,  Xxxx  ~  Evee (via Facebook)

Thank you so much for sending the lovely Coast skirt so quickly.  It's fabulous - much posher than it looked in the pic on the web page.  It's really great quality and hangs beautifully with plenty of room at the waist to tuck tops in - nice. I wore it last night to the Norman Watt-Roy & Friends gig in Birmingham and felt really elegant, for a change!  ~ Janie

I would like to confirm that I have just received my order (they have missed me yesterday)! The hat is beautiful, even better than I expected! ~ Natalia

After the initial shock of how short it was I got used to the idea and wore it and was really pleased I did! Thanks for your kind email regarding your returns policy. But no longer will need to return, thank you. ~ Diana (a customer who was initially unsure about the shortness of her mini dress)

Just wanted to say thank you for reserving the Laura Ashley dress for me. After a little "tweaking" with the buttons on the straps, it fits me really well. I'm very happy with it and with your service and next time I need something a bit different or special, The Frockery will be my first stop! Thanks again. ~ Di

All good - got the dress on Friday as it was sitting at the parcel office. Really pleased with it . I love a shift dress, the colours are lovely and the length was perfect. ~ Rosemary

 Thanks for delivering the Oasis sequinned dress so quickly. It is also a great fit, which is always a bit of a risk when buying off the internet. ~ Rachel

 I am sailing! Just to let you know that your parcel arrived this morning.  Thanks for the fab dress. It fits beautifully and I am very pleased with it.  ~ Jenny 

 Thank you for the quick delivery of the lovely tote bag which I bought recently. I am very pleased with it, a lovely light shade of pink and very roomy , in good condition too. A real bargain at £8. It is so pleasing to go on to a site that can offer quality goods at such a reasonable price. So many of the online vintage and retro shops tend to be very overpriced so thanks again for keeping your prices at a fairer lower level so many more of us can afford to have a treat now and then. I enjoy browsing through the 'new arrivals' each Wednesday and even when I do not purchase anything, I still enjoy looking and learning a bit more about vintage and retro goods.  I have had a few items from your shop and have always been very happy with them.  The recycling aspect is sensible as it saves wastage of some beautiful items. Good for the planet, good for us. Keep up the good work, best wishes to you all. ~ Lynda A

 Thanks so much Alison. Am always very impressed by your service and the items I've bought from you since I found you a few years ago. ~ Lynda R

 Just tried on my Frockery frocks - bloody marvellous - I shall go to the ball!  They both fit perfectly - I'll post a pic of them in Sri Lanka!  ~ Cathy  (who was belle of the Sri Lanka Caledonian Ball in a Droopy & Browns vintage raw silk gown from The Frockery)

Just a note to thank you for very prompt delivery and the two dresses are perfect. Looked at your website to find a dress for a 70's 'do' I am going to do and wanted to buy lots of other stuff. Great site - will be back for more!  ~ Sue

These coats are all over the shops at the moment (but not for £25!!) Thanks again for the prompt packaging up and sending of, much appreciated.  ~  Rachel

Thank you so so much for all your help in sourcing my Abigail's Party Frock for my themed party!  The dress arrived this morning, very quick and efficient of you!   It fits perfectly and I LOVE IT!     Thank you too for the lovely pink cape that arrived yesterday, both are exactly as I expected, if not better, fit well and are of great quality.

You are truly a great asset to your company with your excellent professional customer service! Many thanks, and I have added Frockery to my favourites as well. ~ S.T. 

The cardi arrived this afternoon and is even lovelier than it looked in the photos.  The colours are perfect and it's lovely and cosy. The reindeer/snowflake dress and now this cardi are both perfect fits. I'm so chuffed.  ~ Janie

I got the package today and I adore both items!  ~ Kelly

Just want to say thanks for such a speedy delivery of my order. I am very pleased with the very classy vintage evening bag. Bought this for my Mum and I know she will love it. Nice clean condition and beautifully made. I particularly like the diamonte style clasp and mini matching purse inside.  My feline velvet animal skirt also is very nice and I shall enjoy wearing it.  Good to know we can buy vintage things that are not too expensive, as some shops do charge such a lot.

I wanted to email you to say your customer service is amazing, I stumbled upon your website by chance yesterday and ordered 3 Christmas presents and they were just what I was after. My friend LOVES vintage things and is a big fan of an ugly Christmas jumper. I placed my order at around 2pm yesterday and my things have arrived just now!! What a service. I shall be telling everyone I know about you and I will be liking you on Facebook and twitter (but after Christmas so my friend does not catch on as I want it to be a surprise) . I wish I could buy more things and I had started to look for myself but stopped and thought get Christmas out of the way first. I work as a customer service coordinator so customer service is important to me and often people only write to complain rather than praise. So please take this praise you deserve it!!  ~ Lisa 

I wanted to let you know I am thrilled with the clothes, shoes and bag. The tea dress is a perfect fit and I'm wearing it to a wedding this weekend.

The lovely russet coatigan arrived yesterday and is lovely.  So warm and cosy and beautiful colours.  The fit is fine so I must be extra extra large!  It's our Christmas do at an Italian restaurant in town on Friday and I can't wait to show it off there.  Thank you so much for getting it to me so quickly.  Your packaging is always so nicely done.  I notice on your site that you've got a lovely blue cardigan by the same Norwegian firm but think I better be sensible and concentrate on Christmas and other people! ~ Janie
