Thanks for looking!

FAQs

For UK shipping, yes. For international shipping, it is often an overestimate. Once I have shipped your order, I will refund the difference, minus a small packaging fee. For international shipping, you can get in touch if you would like an accurate shipping quote. Please let me know which country you would like it shipped to in your message.

When dating items often there are similar examples from the same period. I also use years of experience buying and selling vintage and antique items - the patina, materials used, feel and styles incorporated, and ageing marks all allow for a educated estimation of age.

All orders are sent tracked and/or signed for. I provide the tracking number on the dispatch note. I always refund overpaid shipping, minus a small packaging cost. I ship all over the world regularly! I do not have any control over delivery as soon as I have shipped your order and cannot be responsible for any delays by customs.

Occasionally, as the recipient, you may be required to phone your the delivery courier in your country if there is a delay. Please contact me if you would like the phone number and tracking number. I do all I can from my end in the event of a delay, but once your order has been shipped, ultimately, it is no longer in my control.

For items made of breakables including glass and stone - I ship breakables frequently and I take great pride in my protective packaging.

For UK Highlands, Channel Islands, and Northern Ireland customers, please expect additional shipping costs for items over 2kg and/or bigger than a Royal Mail small parcel, as the courier charges more for delivery to this area. For more information please get in touch.

Please note that some countries outside of the EU sometimes apply customs duties to orders imported. I can’t be responsible for paying custom fees as this is a tax levied by your government. Please contact your local customs office if you are uncertain whether your order will be subject to a tax.

I sometimes use recycled cardboard boxes for shipping, they are strong and sturdy, and help to reduce our carbon footprints.


Payments

I accept Etsy vouchers! You can also pay by direct checkout and Paypal.

You can also reserve (layaway) items over £50. This requires a 25% non-refundable deposit. I will hold them for up to 14 days. If the remaining 75% has not been paid during that time I will relist the item.

Additional return information
As many of the items I stock are vintage, they will of course often show lovely signs of age and wear, please be aware of this.

Due to the time taken to package, cancellations incur a fee if packaged. Items may also be marked as dispatched once the item is packaged. If you would like to know a return shipping estimate please get in touch.

EU REGULATIONS - applies to physical goods which are not customised or personalised:

You have 14 days from receipt of your order to inform me that you wish to return it.

Returns must be sent tracked. Once your order has been returned in the same condition as it was sent, I will be able to issue you a full refund, less the amount you paid for postage. Any damage incurred during return shipping will incur a loss of value charge, the amount depending on the item value. I cannot refund any non EU customs taxes incurred.

Drift Niceties is not responsible for paying the return costs of your order, packaging costs, nor any taxes that may be incurred. Should you wish to cancel an order, and require a form to complete, please get in touch, and I will send you one. It is up to the buyer to arrange a reputable courier/postal service.

Due to courier policies, fragile items (glass, stone, ceramic) are shipped at the buyers risk. I cannot refund if broken in transit. I take great pride in my packaging and have shipped mirrors etc all over the world.

For larger/heavier items, the courier sometimes applies a fee for non collected and returned to sender items (UK £6, International £20), this fee will be deducted with a packaging fee if a refund is preferred. I can also resend the item for the same shipping cost plus the courier’s return to sender fee. Sourced and sold from the UK, sold according to UK law and any action will be taken through a UK court.
