As soon as we have received the payment by Paypal, your purchase will be dispatched within 1-3 working days. If for any reason beyond our control we need more time, we will of course inform you straight away.
Our items are mainly found in Italy and we spend much of our time there, but we are currently living in rural Wales and so will be shipping from there.
For a few extra pounds we can use a quicker postal service, recorded delivery or insured professional service (recommended). Please enquire before purchase for a quote on these costs. In any case we’ll always get your agreement before we go ahead. We always get proof of posting but sadly once the item has left our hands, it's out of our control.
For smaller, light weight items we generally use Royal Mail postal service or where items are more than £50 because they're are signed for on delivery. They aim to deliver within the U.S. within 7 - 10 working days.
If the item is extra large, heavy or especially valuable, we can use a courier service which you can track. Delivery is usually within 3 days within the UK and 3-7 days in the rest of Europe. The U.S. and other countries may be 7 to 15 days.
We will always combine postage if there are several items you can't resist. Please contact us first for a quote.
We ship to your Etsy address.
We accept Paypal, but if you don't have a Paypal account, don’t worry, you don’t need one, you can just pay by credit card. To do this just choose "Pay with Paypal" and click on the ‘card’ option. Prices are in £'s (pounds sterling) but if you are in another part of the world, Paypal will automatically convert your payment to your own currency.
I’m sure you understand that payment must be completed before the item is dispatched.
Returns & exchanges
I’m sorry, but due to postal prices we can’t do refunds, but you are most welcome to ask as many questions about the item as you want and we can provide more photos if necessary. We have tried to be as clear as possible in the written descriptions about any marks, particular signs of wear, damage or stains on the item so please read them carefully before you make your purchase.
Where the age of an item is specified we have gone by information from the previous owner, unless of course there's a date stamped on it somewhere or it was only made during a specific period or year. Otherwise the item is sold only as vintage.
