PURCHASING FROM US
By purchasing from The Collecterie, you (the customer) accept these terms and conditions. To avoid all misunderstandings, please carefully read all our terms and conditions, in conjunction with our Privacy and Cookies Policy and our Delivery, Returns and Refunds page.
You will be asked to expressly agree to these terms and conditions before you place an order for goods from our website.
Your order is an offer to buy goods from us on our website. There will be no contract of any kind between you and us unless and until we actually dispatch the goods to you. At any point up until then, we may decline to supply the goods to you without giving any reason.
All orders are subject to acceptance of your order by us and availability of the goods. An email confirmation is only a confirmation that we have received your order and/or payment. It is not an acceptance of your order and we retain the right to contact you and issue a full refund in the event of complications with your order; including, but not limited to, incorrect pricing, stock availability and delivery charges.
When you place an order, we will require your name, e-mail address, contact telephone number and payment details. Without this information we will not be able to process your order.
We will take payment for your order by the payment method selected by you at the point of sale and not at the point of dispatch.
The total cost of your order is the price of the products ordered plus delivery. You confirm that the credit or debit card that is being used (or electronic payment service account, if applicable) is yours
The credit or debit card used is subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. We take no liability for any delays or non-delivery of goods, if your card issuer does not, for any reason, authorise payment to us.
We may refuse service to anyone at any time or refuse to process a transaction for any reason at our sole discretion. We will not be liable to you or any third party by reason of our withdrawing any product from our website, whether or not that product has been sold. We reserve the right to reject any offer of purchase by you at any time. We reserve the right to withdraw any products from our website at any time and/or remove or edit any materials or content on our site.
Once your order is dispatched and delivered the contract will be complete between you and us. If we are unable to fulfil your order we will notify you and refund you within 7 working days of doing so. If there are any problems with your order, you will be contacted either by email or by phone.
We will take all reasonable care, in so far as it is in our power to do so, to keep the details of your order and payment secure but, in the absence of negligence on our part, we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to any data you provide when accessing or ordering from our website.

“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.
These terms and conditions do not affect your statutory rights (if appropriate) as a consumer (including your right to receive a refund in respect of any defective product we sell to you).
