We often photograph our items in an appropriate setting to give more of an idea of how the items might look when displayed. The actual item for sale will be the main item in the photograph and, unless otherwise stated, the sale is for the item described only (i.e. not inclusive of any background items used in the pictures)
PAYMENT: Paypal for overseas bidders please. UK bidders also may use a cheque drawn on a UK bank or send a postal order. Please send payment within ten days of auction end, or if you are likely to be away etc. please contact me to let me know.
POSTAGE: Our postage charges are estimated to the best of our ability before the item is packed for shipping based on actual Royal Mail price charts. Therefore, if the actual shipping charge should prove to be less, we will refund the difference in postage back to you via Paypal. We always use Signed For or Insured services. Although these do cost a little more, they offer better service and protection for items, so are worth the extra cost in case of any problems.
I will combine postage for multiple items, provided they can be safely packed together.
NON UK BIDDERS: In theory we are happy to ship most items overseas, but those which are large and/or heavy can be very expensive via UK shipping channels. If you wish to bid from overseas and do not see a postage price for your destination in the listing, please contact us and we will send a shipping estimate. Items are priced for postage by Volumetric Weight : height x width x length.
Please also note that your local customs office may levy an import duty, which you will need to pay.
CONDITION: We try to describe any specific flaws accurately, but as all the items we sell are antique or vintage, they will show some signs of wear and tear.
DESCRIPTION: We try to describe all items accurately and measurements as closely as possible. If you do need more information then please contact us via the E-Bay “Contact Seller” page and we will reply as quickly as possible.
RETURNS: If you have any problems or concerns once you have received your item, please also contact us and, again, we will respond as quickly as we can.
We want all bidders to be happy with their items and we comply with the distance selling regulations.
Equally, if the item is not as described, or arrives damaged, please contact us.
For items which arrive damaged: With claims for damaged items, the carrier will most likely want to see evidence of damage, so please keep all packaging and the damaged item itself. Please take photographs of these if at all possible, as these will aid a claim.
However, we are a small business and returns do cost us money. If you request to return an item for other than the reasons above, we may ask you to pay the return postage charges.
Thank you for your interest in our items!
