// packaging //
epoch co. is very green, and i only use recycled packaging/shipping materials to help reduce my footprint on the environment. although the box and packing products may look used, i would never use unsanitary materials.

all vintage purchases will be wrapped and packed with the utmost care, in order that it makes it’s way to you in one perfectly vintage piece.


// insurance //
insurance and tracking are optional, but definitely recommended to avoid losing items in the mail. all packages (not letters) within australia have tracking now automatically included in the regular postage price, but if you would like to add on insurance at checkout, it is $1.50 for every $100 in value. signature on delivery ($2.95) is also available as an extra check out option. insurance is recommended for valuable or breakable items.

international shipping also has trackable options, and insurance can be selected on some options. when shipping is already fairly expensive (i.e. over $50), these options are generally only a few dollars more. please convo me for prices prior to checkout.

Returns & exchanges

i do my best to describe and photograph all items accurately, as i want you to love your purchase as much as i do! the photographs form part of the item’s description, as this is more accurate than just describing the item.


please keep in mind my items are vintage and of course show the signs of use, which give them their unique character. as these items are original vintage items, most are worn, weathered and/or in rusty condition, and are offered in ‘as-is’ condition. please contact epoch co. prior to purchase if you have any questions or concerns, or would like to see additional photos.


If all or part of an insured shipment has arrived damaged, you as the receiver must lodge the claim with Australia Post - I can provide you with the information required however.


if you are not happy with your purchase, please let me know as soon as the item is received so i can work with you to resolve any concerns you have.
