Announcement   Welcome to explore Finnish Treasures! Tervetuloa tutustumaan Suomalaisiin Aarteisiin!
First of all, I thank my devoted loyal customers and welcome new ones.

My shop is dedicated to traditional Finnish Design, Collectibles and so much more. I am 100% Finn, and live in US. I am very proud of my Finnish Heritage, and am happy to conduct business in Finnish or "Finnglish" as well.
I was born and raised with beautiful Finnish designs all around me - and I am thrilled to be able to offer some of these treasures for you. You can be confident that all the items in my shop are genuine Finnish products.

Since 99% of the items I offer are vintage, some normal wear is expected. I do my best to provide good pictures of the items, and are happy to submit more photos if needed.
I inspect each item carefully and make a notation on each item listed of any findings of any flaws in them beyond normal wear.

It is important to understand that as with any vintage item made out of glass, porcelain, faience etc. the crazing can "weaken" throughout the years- and if those items are banged the crazing can easily "crack" and when item is in use the tiny crackling lines on the crazing will stain.

I feel very lucky to be able to offer so many treasures for your consideration and am constantly seeking for more.

I have shipped Finnish Treasures to different corners of this wild world, for example: Germany, France, Australia, Canada, China, Japan, India, South Korea, Finland and many more countries...as well as of course all over US.

My little shop offering of vintage Arabia Christmas plates www.etsy.com/listing/181946273 were recently featured in "decorating ideas" at Waldfriedenstate magazine which is much appreciated.

I spend endless hours researching and developing reliable and trustworthy product descriptions, so my customers can be confident they are purchasing an accurately represented item.
If by any chance your are a fellow merchant, and utilize any information pertaining to current or previous listings, please out of consideration give me the courtesy of asking permission to use the information. I am willing to share information in order to promote our mutual endeavors.
Using my photos and item descriptions without prior permission from me will result in reporting to the appropriate entities.

I spend lot of time researching about the items I sell in attempts to make sure that I am able to give you honest and accurate description of the items. All the information on my listings are to best of my knowledge - and cathered from information available.
If you have more knowledge of any specific item in my little shop and would like to educate me about it more - I sincerely welcome your kind comments. I am always eager to learn more and as much as I can.

Occasionally I receive inquiries for special orders and / or requests for research, such as item identification, pricing/ value and availability of the item. Therefore I have created a special listing for such requests. Please see our listing for special orders

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Payments are due at the time of a purchase. We accept Credit cards via Etsy Direct check out and PayPal as payments.

Before your purchase, please make sure you have read item description and my shop policies. As you submit your payment, you agree to these terms. If you have any question on any items, shop policies etc., please contact me before purchasing.

EU COUNTRIES CUSTOMERS; I only accept payments via PayPal for customers from EU Countries - also, please contact me prior your purchase to review my shop policies.
Shipping
I use recycled/ upcycled shipping materials to my fullest abilities and when ever available.
I do my best to make sure your order is shipped within 2 business days (please consider Holidays as an exception). I will send you a notification via Etsy when your item has been shipped, including a tracking number if applicable.

I utilize United States Postal Service for 99% for shipments, and the shipping and handling costs listed are as such. All items sold are insured for shipping within USA.

I am happy to accommodate shipping via FedEx or UPS, if you so desire- please contact me prior your purchase, so I am able to adjust the shipping rates accordingly.

I am happy to ship anywhere in the world. Majority of the offerings in my shop have estimated shipping costs listed- in case an item you are interested in would not have one,please send me a note, and I will send you a quote.
I do combine shipping for purchases of 1 or more items at the same time.

I have shipped several Finnish Treasures to overseas, to different corners of this world . To mention few; Germany, France, Australia, Canada, China, Japan, India, Finland, England, as well as of course all over US.
Normal overseas shipment delivery time is approximately 6-10 business days.

Please make sure that you have correct shipping address on your Etsy account- my shop will mail all the orders to the address you have with Etsy. If your address on your etsy account is different from your PayPal account- it is your responsibility to make the appropriate changes into your PayPal account to reflect the shipping address.
Again, we ship to the address on your Etsy account which must match your PayPal shipping address (if you made a payment via PayPal).

All items are personally shipped and handled by me and any shipping rates and destination country's custom fees are the responsibility of the buyer.

I am happy to ship anywhere in the world, as well as combine shipping for two or more items- so please feel free to contact me re. the shipping rates.

All items sold are insured for shipping within USA.

Shipments for overseas- I am happy to include insurance for the item for a cost of the actual insurance. Please note that only way to insure a package overseas via US Postal service is by Global Express.

Please see my shops refund policy.

Shipping costs can be a bit difficult to determine- since rates vary depending on the destination. For example, a package what would ship in East Coast for $7, would most likely cost $11 for the West Coast. So/ please keep that in mind.
I try to be as accurate as I can with shipping and handling rates. Sometimes I am off few dollars (sometimes it is my loss, and sometimes my gain)- if by any means I am way off, I will offer you a refund for the difference.

OVERSEAS CUSTOMERS; The rate quoted will be for shipping from USA to your country, and does not cover any applicable custom fees in your destination country. Also keep in mind, that when you purchase an item from different country, items sometimes are held by customs (in your country), which is totally out of my control, which can result for a longer delivery time than expected from my part or from USPS standards.
Please note that all customs fees, taxes re. Import, and any other applicable taxes / fees are customer responsibility and totally beyond my control. My listings / items DO NOT include any of those fees, since I do not collect them nor do I have knowledge of your Countries applicable laws, fees, taxes etc. I would advise you to check into your Countries policies re. those fees and taxes prior to your purchase, to avoid any surprises.

Shipments for overseas- I am happy to include insurance for the item for a cost of the actual insurance. Please note that only way to insure a package overseas via US Postal service is by Global Express.


If the item is returned back to us via postal service due to "undeliverable address" or package simply was not picked up by a customer- or if customer refuses to pay the possible customs fees/ taxes etc. I am unable to refund you the purchase price or the shipping charges.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want to make sure you are a Happy and Satisfied Customer.
Therefore, I do my best to describe the items I have to offer, so you will have a good understanding and can make sound decision what you are purchasing. I know it can be quite a lot to read - but as with any online purchase, you want to have full understanding what you are getting. So, please make sure you read the description, look at the photos and send me a note with any questions you might have before purchasing.

I want to emphasize that the 99% of the items in my shop are vintage (20+years old) , so "normal wear and tear" can be expected (typically scuff marks, utensil marks etc.). Since the items are pre-owned vintage items, and their history most of the time is un-known - therefore I can not guarantee that they have not been dropped/ banged against something through out the years for example - which could have lead to "weakening" of porcelain / faience etc. - such wear would not be seen visually and would be impossible to know. As with any vintage porcelain / faience /glass etc. any possible "fine lines" might not be visible until after some time when in active use.

If you have any question on any items, our policies etc., please contact me before making your purchase.

If you are not completely happy with your purchase, please contact me. I will do my best to make you a happy customer.

I accept returns/ issue refund ONLY if my listing has been totally incorrectly described or the item was damaged during the shipping.

I do not accept returns due to "buyers remorse".

Once order have been placed, processed and shipped - it can not be cancelled.

In the event of return, you (customer) are responsible for the expense of return shipping cost. I must receive the item back before issuing a refund (in its original condition - un-used).
I will not be able to refund you the original shipping cost. It is also important for you to understand that in case of the return, I will issue you a refund minus applicable Etsy fees and minus PayPal fees (if applicable), or any possible customs fees etc.
Item / items must be returned in its original condition and un-used with tracking for the return shipment.

If an item arrives damaged -and you have contacted us re. insuring your item and paid for the insurance-, we will refund full purchase price to the buyer. The damaged item must be returned to me before a refund is issued. Please remember, that you have responsibilities in case of an insurance claim for the post office -such as taking photos of the broken item and the packaging, issuing the claim to USPS, saving all packaging materials etc).

If you are not fully satisfied or the item arrived damaged, your role is to contact us within 5 weekdays of post office confirmed delivery date (shipments have tracking-) to your address.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS, INCLUDING EU COUNTRIES CUSTOMERS;
I am happy to do business with you- by purchasing an item / items from my shop, you agree to my shop policies - It is important for you to acknowledge and agree to my shop policies, including the following;
- In case of a return: you need to notify me in 5 days after confirmed delivery date re. possible return.

BEFORE YOU BUY

Before your purchase, please make sure you have read item description and my shop policies. As you submit your payment, you agree to these terms. If you have any question on any items, shop policies etc., please contact me before purchasing.

Why I have all these policies written in detail vs. "short version" policies

I want to make sure you understand what, when, how and what about if.

Etsy (as an entity) keeps getting bigger and are seeking more customers (equals to more money for them), they feel that policies should be as short as possible, since based on their study that is what you as a customer find appealing- short and sweet answers.

To me it is more important that you are a happy well informed consumer and know what I can and can not do- so nothing in my shop policies is left as so called "small print" and that you are able to make a decision whether you wish to do business with me or not.

I am buying more than 1 item- the shipping charges are extremely high

Please note that each items shipping varies- and are based on the 1 specific items estimated shipping charges.
When you buy 1 or more items, yes the shipping charges in your shopping cart will be off quite a bit- you can either send me a note to ask to adjust the shipping charges or you can just pay your purchase with the estimated shipping charges as they are, and once I have prepared the shipping label, I will refund you the difference immediately- so no worries.

How about returns and buyers remorse

I do not accept returns unless I have totally misrepresented the item you purchased. I am sure you understand that returns/ exchanges can not be accepted because buyers remorse.

Privacy Policy - I did not see one

I will only use your shipping and billing address, and contact information:
To communicate with you about your order
To fulfill your order
For legal reasons (like paying taxes)
To possibly communicate with you if you expressed an interest of specific item that I currently do not have available.
I do not sell or give your contact information out

Communication outside of Etsy

Any and all communication regarding your order (inquiries before placing your order/ possible issues etc.) must be via Etsy "contact seller". This is to ensure that you as a customer and me as a seller, both are protected by Etsy.

But I do welcome you to contact me at finnishtreasures@earthlink.net
