PACKAGING

We recycle our packaging. Where possible we send out packages in reused cardboard boxes, often ones that have originally come from our suppliers, Whilst we try hard not to invest in plastic, we may recycle bubblewrap or plastic protectors we have received rather than sending it straight to landfill and reuse it to keep your goods safe in your parcel. Our parcels may not be the prettiest from the outside, but your products will safely be wrapped beautifully inside the box.

Thank you for your understanding and support.

 

RETURNS

We want you to be happy with every item you receive, but we understand that there are occasions you may want to return an item.

If you are not entirely satisfied with your purchase, please contact us within 14 days of delivery to let us know you wish to return your item(s) for a full refund or exchange, excluding original delivery fees. Then please send the item back to the shop within 14 days of notifying us of your intention to return.

Please fully inspect goods on delivery and take care to keep all packaging until you are happy with the product as we can only accept returns with original packaging. Returned items must be in their original condition, with all packaging and labels still intact.

You are responsible for covering the cost of returning items to us and their safe return. You must ensure all items are packaged securely and sufficiently to withstand their return journey. We recommend that you return goods using an insured, recorded delivery service. We cannot refund items lost or damaged in transit back to us.

EXCHANGES

REFUNDS

If you cancel a contract and are entitled to a refund, we will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase. We will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any event, within 30 days of the day we received your valid notice of cancellation.

We cannot be responsible for interest charges made by your credit card company whilst waiting for returns to be refunded to your card.

FAULTY ITEMS

If you believe your item is faulty, please contact us at [email protected] straight away. We will be able to advise you on the next steps and will help to organise a return or a replacement.

Please DO NOT attempt to assemble or fix an item yourself or via a third party as this will affect your entitlement to a refund, compensation or reimbursement. We also ask that you do not return a faulty item without contacting us first.

If an item is agreed to be faulty or defective, you will not be responsible for covering the returns postage cost

 

DISCLAIMERS

“Vintage” and “Antique” means that the item has not recently been made and also means it has been used in the past. Antique and vintage furniture and products have been chosen for their aesthetic value and character, and their condition will not be perfect which is part of their charm. Surface scratches and dents for instance, are well in keeping with age and use. We endeavour to describe all items as best as possible and provide as many details as we can, but please do call if you require more information about any of our products.

Old furniture and other vintage pieces are non-returnable unless faulty.

Please note wooden products may warp or expand when subject to changes in temperature and humidity. Never leave wooden items near radiators or in full sunlight, under a window for example.

Many of the items sold are handmade using traditional techniques or rustic or natural materials and therefore:

  • will vary from the picture on the Website as no two items will be identical.
  • Will have small marks, differences or imperfections in keeping with their hand made nature

These reasonable product imperfections do not constitute defective items. If you do not like their appearance, please follow the refund and returns procedure set out above. You will be responsible for the return postage cost.
