Payments

Secure options
  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
I accept payment via Paypal only. This includes all major credit cards and you do not need a Paypal account/balance in order to pay this way, just a quick registration and you're done!
Once you have made a purchase, you can expect your order to be despatched within a short space of time but I do live in a rural area and as such it is not always possible to make frequent trips to the Post Office. If you need something in a hurry, please get in touch and I will do my utmost to rush your order to you.

Returns & exchanges

Refunds are only offered if an item has been grossly misdescribed by me, for instance in the case of condition not being as per the listing.
In this case, all postage costs will be reimbursed.
Please do remember that the majority of the items for sale here are vintage and as such will not be in 'perfect' or 'pristine' condition. If this is what you require then my shop probably isn't for you. I cannot refund or accept return of items simply because you do not like it.
