Keep the stories alive!

From an early age I was mesmerized by times gone by. How did people live, what did they eat, what did they do and what things did they use in everyday life or on special occasions?
After considering for a brief moment a career as an archeologist, I decided to train as a social worker. I started working with elderly people and I loved their life stories.
Around the same time I discovered trift shops, flea markets and so on. Here I found items that so often played a role in the stories of those days gone by.
I love to fantasize about who has used them and when and what for. Did they have to save for it or was it a wedding present? You can often see that those items were loved and well taken care of.
I like to give these items a second life, they deserve it! When we keep using them, we keep the stories alive.
That's why I started Tea(Cup)Cake. In my shop you can find vintage items that are telling a story and deserve a second life!

Returns and exchange details
Please be sure to ask all of your questions before you make a purchase.

I aim to describe everything to the best of my ability and therefore all sales are final and products are purchased AS IS unless the item differs hugely from the description. However, if you would like to return an item please contact me BEFORE you return the item and within 5 business days of initial receipt. Any return shipping costs will have to be paid for by the buyer.
PLEASE note that shoes and clothing can not be returned. See also 'Additional Information' (in the box below).

If we agree to a return and refund, I only refund the cost of the item and the initial shipping costs. I do not refund any return shipping costs nor taxes (paid by you or me upon return).
Goods must be returned in the exact condition they were sent. Any damage and taxes will be deducted from the refund amount.
It's recommended the item is returned by signed for/registered post as a refund cannot be given until the item has been received back to me.

I wrap all items very well for their long trip across the world. If your item arrives damaged nevertheless, please make sure to provide me with pictures of the damaged package and item within 5 days and we can make arrangements about a refund.
You can either pay through Paypal or by Direct Checkout.

Did you know you don't need a Paypal account to use Paypal?
Simply click on the Paypal icon at the checkout and then choose your credit card preference and follow the prompts. It's easy and the safest way to pay on the internet.

You can always ask for a reservation, I can reserve items for up to 2 weeks.
I'd appreciate it if you let me know if you don't want the item anymore. Thank you!

I offer a 10% discount if you're buying multiple items and if you let me know in advance so I can customize the listings for you.
Ask for international delivery times before you make a purchase.
Please note that these are only estimates. Customs inspection, delay at the airline or post office and/or public holidays can add extra unexpected delivery time.

If you are a national buyer you may consider local pick up. You can pick up your item(s) in Breda.
If you buy multiple items and you are from the Breda area, I can even deliver the items at your house or work address.

PLEASE ask for the exact shipping costs BEFORE you make a purchase!!!
Especially if you want to buy multiple items.
I combine shipping whenever possible to save on your shipping costs.
The shipping costs could be lower than stated. If you ask first, I can make a special listing for you and we can avoid unnecessary double fees.

I strongly recommend shipping with at least Track & Trace for international packages!
I can't take responsibility for lost packages if you didn't use the Track & Trace option nor for damaged packages if you didn't use the Track & Trace with insurance option!

If a package is undeliverable due to an inaccurate shipping address provided by the buyer, I cannot be held responsible so please make sure you have the right address on your Etsy account.
Please note I will only ship to the address on your account not to other addresses.
Shipping to PO Boxes is at your own risk.

If a package is returned to me because it wasn't claimed by the buyer, I can refund the item price minus 15% to compensate for my lost time and supplies.
Shipping costs are non-refundable in this case.
I can also ship the item again, in that case I'll charge 15% of the item price + the new shipping costs.

If you're an international buyer please note this important information:
Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges.
Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying.
These charges are normally collected by the delivering freight (shipping) company or when you pick the item up – do not confuse them for additional shipping charges.

I'm sorry but I cannot mark merchandise values below value or mark items as 'gifts' as this is against Dutch and International law.
Additional policies and FAQs
I sell vintage or antique items that I feel deserve a new life. This means that most or all of my items are used and show some signs of wear or age. I do my best to note any major flaws. There maybe some minor flaws not described which are to be expected with items of age. Please be sure to read the full description of the item and look thoroughly at all the photos. Photographs are also part of the description and at times can cause items to appear larger than they are so please read the measurement info in the listing.
If there is something you'd like to see a clearer picture of or would like to know more about please feel free to ask!
Colours, gloss levels, metallic pigment effects and textures may vary due to screen and printer settings.

When buying vintage clothes or shoes from my shop: full measurements are provided in all descriptions, and I am happy to give additional measurements and/or pictures if needed.
Here's a terrific blog post by co-Etsian and owner of Small Earth Vintage about determining whether something will fit, that might be helpful, especially to those of you new to buying vintage online:
PLEASE note: I do not accept returns of shoes or clothes unless the item differs hugely from the description.

I'm always on the lookout for nice vintage and retro items. If you are looking for, let's say, a teacup with forget-me-nots or a replacement for that vintage plate but you don't have the time to visit the shops or flea markets, please make a request and I'll try to find the item for you!

Most of the items in my shop are delicate and need a lot of packaging material to protect them during transit. To spare the environment and to keep prices as low as possible, I use mostly recycled packaging materials!
If you want me to use only new materials, please let me know and we can make arrangements (at an additional cost).

If you want your item giftwrapped, please let me know. I can also include a gift card with your personal message.

I'm an old fashioned girl; I don't have a smartphone. So sometimes it takes a while before I can respond to your messages as I need a desktop computer but I'll always strive to answer you within 48 hours.
