French and English curiosities

When we lived in England my husband and I had a passion for collecting antiques and curiosities. We moved to France in 2005 and that interest has come with us.
We live in a rural area in a house that was a ruin when we moved here...its still not finished but I dont suppose it ever will be!
Its great to have space around us. We live not far from the local town of Graulhet but are surrounded by plenty of fields and woods. We have collected a few animals since we've been here. We now have 5 cats 2 dogs and 2 goats. Life is never boring or even very quiet.
We have a large flower garden (flowers are a passion of mine) which provides the inspiration for my paintings and a vegetable patch. On the whole our life has changed alot since we left England.
We now collect interesting French memorabilia. My husband, Steve, particularly has developed a mania for French local markets, vide greniers. So we decided that it would be best to open an etsy shop so that others can benefit from our interesting treasures AND make space, so that we have an excuse to buy more!!!

But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:

  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
Returns and exchange details
~ Import duties and related fees and/or taxes are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These costs are the buyer's responsibility.

~ I take great care when packing items, recycle when I can and try to keep weight down to a minimum.
If however your item arrives broken or damaged, please take photos of the packaging and the damaged item straight away and send them to me and I will reimburse the cost of your item minus shipping.
I am unable to take responsibility for the postage costs of damaged items but I will help and advise you to make an insurance claim.
The same applies for lost goods.

~ I describe all items, through both photographs and description as accurately as possible. Vintage items are being listed and sold as seen with no warranty or guarantee. I will do my best to describe the item accurately, note any defects, flaws, or issues with a given item.If you have any queries or require further photographs, please contact me.
I will never try to mislead you, nor shall I ever misrepresent, falsify, or fraudulently list any of the items I sell.

*Returns - The cost of the item will be refunded as soon as i get it back, unless it comes back damaged.
I accept payment by paypal or credit card through Etsy.
Unfortunately there has been a change in the French postal system which means that all items with a thickness more than 3cm have to be posted by Colissimo. This means that for most items the postage has increased enormously.
The only suggestion I can make is if you are interested in more than 1 item, then please contact me for the shipping price. The cost for 2 items posted together will be significantly cheaper than posted separately.

For all items shipped with Colissimo International, you will be given a tracking number so that you will be able to track the parcel on their website. The price of shipping also includes insurance. Once the parcel has left France, buyers can track them on online.

In the rare case of damage during shipment, please save all parts of your item plus all packaging. We will need it to file an insurance claim. Please contact me right away with photos of damaged items and their packaging. If packaging is discarded, this voids shipping insurance and I will be unable to issue a refund or replacement.

Deliveries with Colissimo usually take 8 to 10 days to reach any place in the world.

**You will find, in the true spirit of recycling, that your item will ,if possible, arrive packaged in a pre used box. I make no apologies for this as I believe that we should not waste earth's resources.
So dont be surprised if you receive your item in an Amazon box!! **


I ship to the address listed on PayPal or the Etsy receipt. It is the buyers responsibility to let me know if this address is incorrect.

I am most careful when packing items, but if the packaging is damaged I advise you to check the parcel's contents in front of the postman and refuse to accept it if the contents are damaged.
