Vintage Information

We buy and sell vintage Ossie Clark / Celia Birtwell from the 1960’s & 1970’s.

Selling your vintage pieces:

We have teamed up with vintage specialist, Cleo Butterfield of c20 Vintage Fashion and together we source our vintage stock from a wealth of sources, however, what makes this venture so inspiring & exciting is the emotional connection & history behind each piece worn by the women & daughters of the women who originally wore the clothes.

If you have an original Ossie Clark / Celia Birtwell you would like to sell please fill in the short form below and follow its instructions. By filling in the form we will be able to get a good indication of the condition and value of your garment.  Once we have assessed your details we will be in touch to discuss personal inspections and prices.

Buying our vintage pieces:

Please remember all garments are vintage and have been worn unless stated otherwise. All our garments are in good vintage condition, however if there are any flaws they will be itemised.

We give accurate descriptions & measurements of each garment and supply plenty of photos. Please email us if you need more information on a certain garment at vintage@celiabirtwell.com. Please note that colours may vary depending on the type of screen you are using.

It is the responsibility of the customer to make sure the vintage garment is suitable for your needs before you place an order. Due to the delicate nature of the vintage garments we do not give refunds, exchanges or credit notes unless under exceptional circumstances – which will be made at our discretion.

Wherever possibly we will sell each garment with a copy of Celia’s corresponding sketch from her print archives, however, over the years pages have gone missing and the exact design might not be available.  In this case we will use our own discretion to choose a suitable print to be sent with your new purchase.

When an order has been placed for a vintage garment in our shop or on our website we will mark the item SOLD.  If you are interested in a garment marked SOLD you are welcome register your interest by emailing us at vintage@celiabirtwell.com.  We will keep your information on file and inform you if we come across any similar garments.  If a SOLD garment order falls through we will take of the SOLD sign off the website and inform you of the changes by email.

Please note we do not hire or loan any of our vintage garments.

You are more than welcome to view our collection in person but it is strictly by appointment only.

Celia loves hearing about the wonderful memories people have had wearing her clothes over the decades so please share any you might have by emailing us at vintage@celiabirtwell.com.
