About

My life as a gipsy......

I started traveling at the age of 16.....just to the Channel Islands to work for the summer...and then again when I was 17, I returned.....This seems to have set the story of my life....
At 18 I went to the USA as an AuPair..and lived in a huge beach house in Santa Barbara California...
Since then....I can't get enough of traveling.....
In later years...the last 30 or so, I have taken an interest in antiques and collectables...and have sold hither and yon...and also picked up items on my travels to sell....
I had a shop in Worcester England for a time...also a shop in Sonora California..as well as doing shows up and down the West Coast of California...from Las Vegas to San Diego to as far North as Portland Oregon....
When the recession hit, it hit the antiques business first..all unnecessary items were the first to go..so I closed my Californian shop and, after spending a year in France first, I then returned to England in 2010...
Pretty settled now I guess..although my feet still itch sometimes...so I take off for afew weeks at a time...
In recent years I have spent time in South Africa working on a reserve as a volunteer, Croatia, Spain, South and Middle America....
I spend about 10 weekends a year in France, Belgium and Holland..picking up bits and pieces to sell.....It fuels my 'habit' of travel...although these days I don't do near as much as I would like to.....

Addendum April 2016
AS of April 1st this year I have been living in Spain on the Costa Del Sol...I THOUGHT I was pretty settled in the UK but you never know with me...I am lible to pick up sticks at any moment and off i go....me and my dog together...
Pretty happy at the moment....Almost year round sunshine here in Spain.....had enough of rain to last me a life time......!!!!

Update February 2017
I have now purchased a Villa and will be renting out the top half whilst living in the bottom! It overlooks the sea in Penoncillo, Torrox Costa, Costa Del Sol..so if you fancy a Spanish holiday, let me know !!
The logo picture is of the Villa !

Hereth endeth the story of my life up to now.....

Payment
Paypal prefered, its so quick and easy..or with direct payments now I can take credit cards... Which is also very convenient...

However a cheque in $ will be ok too..but don't send it to Spain ..I have a US bank account! Let me know and I'll send you the address to send cheques !
Shipping
I am having to send everything by air mail recorded / signed for these days as have suffered losses that I can't recoup when sending non recorded mail...

If by chance an item is damaged en route I will need photographic evidence of this via packaging and damaged item to show the Spanish Post Office, or else they will not even look at a claim.


I send out either the same day, or the next day after payment, providing there is no fiesta'!

If you are in a mad hurry I can speed up the post at a cost!!!
Refunds and Exchanges
Due to the high costs of sending items across the globe these days..I prefer not to take returns unless the item has been inadvertently misrepresented in some way..so please be sure you have all the information you need before purchasing...

If you overpay on postage, which is happening more and more as Correos Spain charges differently each time, you do not have to ask for a refund of the overage... I will do it automatically !
