EnglishShop's Shop Announcement

English Shop offers an eclectic collection of personally curated vintage and antique dining, art, religion, toy, sport, silverware, literature, trophy, home decor, accessories, furniture and boudoir related finds which are sourced primarily within Western Europe. English Shop operates worldwide from bases in Kent in England and Normandy in France.

As well as curating, collecting, lending and selling I source items for International clients through my various channels here in Western Europe. If you are looking for a specific piece, why not contact me a chat and I'll keep my eyes open! I speak English, French and German.

I sell vintage items 'as found' - I do not alter them, clean or fix them. My electrical and mechanical items are all sold as not working display items only, although I will test them and advise on the condition where possible within the listing. I do detail all visible faults and damage in my listings, but often see these 'scars' as piece personality rather than fault!

A 10% deposit will secure and reserve any item. I am happy to agree payment plans with customers. Feel free to contact me with your proposal. Please note that any uncompleted payment plan will incur a 10% of total purchase price charge to cover storage and re-listing. Any other outstanding monies paid will be refunded.

I offer rental agreements, or use and return agreements. Clients include private individuals for weddings, film companies for film sets and internal decorators creating bespoke displays for commercial operations. I am happy to discuss your requirements.

I sell items to customers all over the world and cannot always get international postage prices spot on in the listing. I pack all items with special care and attention and only charge a minimal packing charge to cover material costs. You will never pay more than the price quoted on the listing for postage and packaging. Should I initially over charge you for postage and packing I will refund any overpayment once I have dispatched your item from the post office.

All items are sent via a recorded delivery service, this can be upgraded to a tracked, insured and/or express service for an extra premium. In some circumstances I can also offer a budget delivery option, these cheaper delivery options are sent by land and can take up to 8 weeks to arrive to International destinations..

Generally customers receive their items within 2 -10 working days, it is only on rare occasions that items get held in customs. Sometimes delivery may take from 2 to 8 weeks depending on hold ups at customs. Sadly I am unable to guarantee delivery in a certain time-frame with standard delivery services. If you need a delivery date please contact me so that I can use a different shipping service which will be more costly to you. I can offer tracked and/or express services at an extra premium. To date I have never had a lost parcel... just a few delayed and temporarily misplaced that were soon recovered. Should you wish to arrange your own courier you are welcome to do so, but I cannot be held responsible for items after they have left my care.

For purchases outside of the EU import taxes will very likely apply to all purchases. Customs can sometimes hold vintage items for weeks as they confirm manufacturers details and value. Customers should bear this in mind when making their purchases.

For returning items please contact me. Please note that while I am happy to provide refunds due to the nature of online shopping, buyers will be responsible for all return transit costs (unless an item is not as described, or arrives broken).

Thanks for dropping by!
