Updates

Can't believe I have just found the charms from my childhood charm bracelet bought on a family holiday to Cyprus. #tidyingmyworkroom!
Sorting through this little lot today. Lots of interesting new charms coming soon, a shark, dinosaur, Nuvo hovercraft and cottage, lobster pot and a fab large trophy. Better get to it!

About

A Charming obsession!

For several years now, I have been addicted to collecting Vintage silver charms and charm bracelets. It's just that they are so tiny, detailed and beautiful and there are so many different, sometimes rare ones to collect. I am sure any collector knows what I mean. Some open to reveal tiny surprises inside, some are heavily patterned, some are simple and symbolic but they all fascinate me.

Eventually I realised I couldn't keep them all to myself and saw how lovely they became when hanging from a delicate chain to show off the individual charms. I began to theme the original charm bracelets to appeal to different people and started to sell at a local Vintage Fair, soon expanding into other gorgeous vintage jewels. Happy with the response to my offering, my little pop up shop is now here to share with you, I hope you and your friends enjoy it.

Welcome to the Little Vintage Charm Company, please enjoy browsing my beautiful collection of Vintage Charms, Treasures and Trinkets.
Please study the photographs as I endeavour to show you clearly what you are buying. All items are vintage or upcycled and therefore may not be in 'as new' condition, but if there are any known defects this will be clearly shown. However I believe that the gentle marks of time are both interesting and beautiful.

Weights and measurements are as accurate as possible but some items are difficult to measure exactly.
Dates for items are approximate and to the best of my knowledge correct but many Vintage Charms were not hallmarked and it can be almost impossible to date them accurately.
Many items are presented in Gift boxes or satin gift pouches, making perfect and unique gifts.

Happy shopping!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I gladly accept returns and exchanges
Contact me within: 14 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 30 days of delivery
I don't accept cancellations
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:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
RETURNS - FULL REFUND GIVEN.
If you are not satisfied with your purchase please contact me within five days of receipt. You can return the item for a refund of the cost of the item and the postage cost paid with your order however this does not include the return postage costs unless the item is not as described or has arrived damaged during its transition.
All items must be returned in the original packaging if possible and to ensure good packaging and that the item is returned in the same condition. If an item has arrived damaged please send me a photo before returning. Be assured this is not likely to happen as I package extremely well but just in case.

By law in the UK you have a legal right to return an item within a 14 day period of receiving the item. As we are located in the UK we operate within the UK law. I would ask however that you let me know as soon as possible if you wish to return an item.

When returning an item it is important that you tick the box on the Customs label on the envelope that this is a RETURN. If you give the package to the post office to write out the label then please tell them to tick the box RETURN. Returned items don't need to pay Customs fees therefore if your item incurs a customs charge because you have not marked it as a return, I am not obliged to pay the customs fee. This means that the item will be held at the depot for 18 days before they return the item to you and you will then have to resend the item marked RETURN.

EXCHANGES
It is possible to exchange an item however as my items are unique it will not be possible to exchange for the same item in a different size or colour.

CUSTOMS
Please remember that you are responsible for any charges levied when you import the item into your country, such as, but not limited to, import duty and customs charges.

DAMAGED ITEMS
If the item arrives damaged please send me a photo before returning the item so that I can see the amount of damage to the item before it is returned. You will be fully refunded which includes postage cost if your order has been damaged during the postal delivery.

DELAYED AND LOST POST
If an item is delayed or lost in the post please let me know. I must ask you to wait a certain time for the delivery depending on the delivery time estimated. If the item does not arrive within the estimated delivery time allowed by Royal Mail I will refund you your costs when Royal Mail consider the item to be lost.

In general: For Uk, Royal Mail do not consider an item lost until 15 working days after dispatch if sent with Recorded Delivery and 10 working days after dispatch when sent with Special Delivery Next Day Guaranteed 1pm.

However, in most cases it is always better to wait a few weeks for items being sent abroad as they may be held up in Customs and this can cause a delay. It is extremely rare for my packages to go missing in the post but if in the unlikely case that this does happen please rest assured that you will receive a refund for the cost of the item and the cost of postage you paid for the item to be delivered to you.

PLEASE NOTE: When shipping overseas Customs can delay packages by up to 6 weeks. Fortunately this does not happen very often.
Payment
PAYMENTS ARE PROCESSED SECURELY
through PAYPAL.

Choose the PayPal Option during checkout. After you submit your order click the "Pay Now" button. On the right hand side of the next page you will see 2 options, the 2nd one is to pay using a Credit or Debit Card WITHOUT having to sign up for a PayPal account.

Additional policies and FAQs
DESCRIPTION OF ITEMS
Please note that Vintage and Antique items will always have some general wear and tear therefore they will not be in new condition. If I describe a Vintage or Antique piece as good condition it is with the general wear and tear. If there is any damage, missing pieces or obvious scratches etc., I will state this in the condition of item. However I please look at all the photos as this makes up part of the description.
I do try to take photos which reflect the colour of the item however colours may vary slightly from the actual item colour.
Vintage charms are often not hallmarked, this is normal for items under a certain weight.
The majority of English sterling charms have no markings, or at most are marked SILVER or SIL. They’re sterling silver, exactly the same as the hallmarked pieces, but just haven’t gone though the assay process.
