Condition Standards

OUR CONDITION STANDARDS

We have created condition standards to best illustrate an item's quality and characteristics. At PRELOVEDSTORY, all items are carefully curated and we only accept the best quality. We do however sell pre-loved items and therefore kindly ask you to look at our pictures, the descriptions, and the measurements as they give you the best idea of which story our items have to tell. In case of any questions, please feel free to reach out to us at hello@prelovedstory.com.

4 - VINTAGE CONDITION

An item could be vintage from its age but also simply "look" vintage due to carrying vintage features which give character to the piece. For example, the leather has developed an used patina due to frequent use. Typically items show more signs of wear (scuffed corners, used up hardware, etc.) but still correspond to PRELOVEDSTORY's high quality standards. All usage features or possible defects are mentioned in the description and clearly visible in photos. In case of doubts, please feel free to contact us at hello@prelovedstory.com.

Eligibility criteria: Wear from being used mentioned in the description and/or visible in the photo. No torn corners, no broken parts.
