Have a handy-man in your life? Is he the type that perhaps, has everything?? Well, we can pretty much guarantee that he doesn't have this!!!! We're obsessed with this old, and we mean OLD, eggbeater style hand drill/screwdriver!
There is a good change y'all know way more than we do about tools --- we're not exactly 'handy' over here at Bonne Brocante. However, this is, in laymen terms, how it works; first the top head is manually loosened, a drill bit/screw is placed inside, then tightened by turning it the opposite way (lefty loosey, righty tighty), then manually turn the crank to put the drilling into motion!
As for it's condition: Considering it's age, it probably belongs in a museum but we'll digress. It's stunning, it's full of character and showing signs wear, patina and previous life! Everything is turning and functioning perfectly, the only note we have here is that the handle is not as tight as I think it maybe should be, but again, we're not handy at all and it very well could or likely is the way it is supposed to be (we're talking about the handle that is used to turn the wheel and crank ---- it has some give, securely on there but there is movement).

This of course is not guaranteed however; Colissimo International is a very reliable service.
**PLEASE NOTE: For all shipments destined for the Unites States, the French postal system is now requiring a telephone number to be registered for delivery.
Shipping Costs: As the shipping rates from France are not inexpensive (to put it lightly), we are always researching and trying to find ways to get the best possible rates for our customers.

Customs & Duty: Keep in mind that it is possible for your parcel to be held Customs or Border Control in your country and that no one has any control over this; you the buyer are fully and solely responsible for any taxes and/or duties incurred throughout the shipping process. Concerned about ordering from abroad????? Don't be, 99% of my orders are sent abroad! The majority to the U.S. but also throughout the world with no issues, hiccups or extra incurred costs.

Returns & exchanges
Due to the nature of vintage items, all sales are final. We do not offer refunds, credits of exchanges of any kind outside of the EU. We do make all efforts to describe the items accurately. Kindly make sure you read the description and look at the pictures carefully and ask any question you may have before placing your order.
We do our very best to package each item with great care but, should the product arrive damaged, you the buyer must to file a complaint with the local Postal Service, email us a copy of your complaint receipt and we can help guide you though the process. Unfortunately, insurance never covers shipping cost, so this is non-refundable.
Also, it is very important that your correct shipping address appears on your Etsy and/or Paypal account. We cannot be held responsible for packages which are undeliverable or not collected by the buyer from their local Post Office for any reason. Hence, no refund will be issued for items returned to us as ‘undeliverable’.
Under the EU distance selling laws, EU residents are entitled to a 14-day return/exchange policy.

Vintage Style: It is important to keep in mind that all of our items are vintage or antiques, aka: they are not new. These items have had previous lives of their own and some of them have reached us in a little less than mint condition! Our items may show wear or patina -- we believe this is part of the experience and charm of ‘vintage’. All our items are clean however; we do not restore or refurbish them. Real patina happens only once and we choose not to remove it. Instead, we allow the new owners decide whether or not they want to restore the items closer to how they appeared in their glory days! We do our very best to describe each item; including all their 'faults'- although, with vintage articles it's often the faults that give each piece their special character! Please carefully review the information and photos provided and feel free to request any extra information, including photos!
Custom Requests: Should you be searching for something in particular, we may be able to help find it for you! Drop us a line!!!

However, rest easy, your phone number will never be used by us for any other purpose than to ensure safe and speedy delivery of your order!
