About

Love for the Old Magic

Hello and Welcome

Some of my friends call me magpie, I do indeed gravitate towards shinny things, particularly if they are small and bright.
I am also a compulsive hoarder and am easily found at a boot sale or charity shop rummaging through boxes.

A few years back, I went to my first auction, and in all then excitement, I got myself a huge box of antique buttons.
As I went through my new box of treasures, it started to dawn on me that I had far too much stuff, that I probably wouldn't be able to realize all the projects I had in mind and that, maybe, it was time for a new plan.

So, I poured all my free time into my new hobby of photographing tiny objects and listing them on the shop. Slowly but surely I started to have sales, how exciting! Over 3 years of hard work, the shop has grown, taken new directions and now it is my full time job.

I am so very grateful for each little object that has survived to this day and found it's way into my hands, my heart and my shop.
This experience has changed my life, how I perceive value and find history in little stories.
It is an endless source of learning, fascination and a connection to the past.

I thank my lucky stars every day, well at least I try to :)

I have started with another shop that specializes in CREATIVE SUPPLIES, a broad term for all sorts of curious items. I named it MEANGLEAN ALCHEMIST and you can find it here:
https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/MeangleanAlchemist?ref=pr_shop_more
If you do find anything here to be used in your art work, I would love to see the final result, so please feel free to send me pictures, links or just brain waves.

My background is also in theater and film which means I am always picking up stuff that strike me as great props or costumes.
And so the collection keeps expanding.
Hope you enjoy having a look around, and any questions, suggestions or tips you might have, please drop us a line :)
Welcome, welcome...

Shop policies

Hello there

I see you are interested in our shop policies, very glad you asked.

MEANGLEAN SELLS USED ITEMS

The very nature of what I do here at Meanglean and Meanglean Alchemist (our new creative supplies shop) is to recycle, reclaim and re purpose beautiful items from the past.

All items in both shops have had a previous life, previous owners and their own individual stories, so, they come to us bearing the signs of their rich existence. Rust , patina, and even marks of children's tiny teeth are, to me, the added beauty of a vintage find.
I try my very best to photograph, and point out in the description, all such charming imperfections.
Mostly, items are sold as they are shown in the pictures, if there is a detail that I think aren't visible in the pictures, I will include it in the description, sometimes I might include a prop and I will also point out weather this is a part of the selling item or not.

CUSTOM ORDERS
I am very happy to work with you to find an item you might be looking for, and I can make minor changes to some jewelry pieces, like adjusting the length of a chain on a bracelet or necklace. Occasionally I might have more that one of the same item or I might have another similar one, but mostly the items I sell are one off's and are sold as they are shown.


PACKAGING
Whenever possible, I will also use recycled materials for packaging, all clean and prettified. I am always on the lookout for sturdy boxes and interesting looking paper.
This way; not only are we doing our bit to decrease landfills, but also, each package will have it's own individual personality.

If you would like something to be gift wrapped, please drop us a line, we do that too, free of charge. It is our pleasure.

As per yet, there isn't a way to link both shops, I think Etsy might be working on that. But, if you would like to order items from both shops, please let me know before you purchase them so I can combine the shipping costs for you.

Shipping
ABOUT SHIPPING

By default we ship all items via Royal Mail Standard delivery, this service does not include a tracking number. National deliveries tend to happen within 1 or 2 working days. For overseas shipping, the usual time frame for deliveries is 5 to 10 working days.
Once in a blue moon, there can be delays with parcels taking up to 25 working days to reach their destination. This can be due to an increase in traffic for the postal services over busy periods like Christmas, staff shortages, random custom checks or simply human error.
The Royal Mail also offers Tracked & Signed to most countries outside of the UK, which aims to deliver within 5 working days and provides a tracking number at an extra cost. For a small parcel, like a piece of jewellery, Tracked & Signed will add another $9.00 to the shipping cost. Larger items will vary. If you would like to use an extra service please let us know and I will adjust the listing for you. Please note that, as much as this service tends to be reliable, the Royal Mail does not guarantee delivery dates.

Refunds and Exchanges
ABOUT RETURNS, EXCHANGES, REFUNDS

Meanglean is a small, independent retail business all run by myself; Christine and on occasion by my lovely assistant; Maggie.
As such; my self appointed mission is to be the best shop keeper I can possibly be.
My absolute priority is that each and every exchange is a delightful experience.
Every Item on the shop has been carefully chosen, photographed and described by me. So I care a bout them. I care that they arrive safely, I care that you are pleased with them, and I also care if it's not quite what you expected.
We try very hard to package all items very carefully and safely.
If there are delays, damage or any discrepancy, please contact us via the Etsy convo system and I will get back to you as soon as I read it.
In the unlikely event that the item you receive that is not what you expected, please do get in touch via the Etsy convo system so that we can sort it out.
I am happy to refund any customer if we have made a mistake, all you have to do is contact us (Via the Etsy convo system, please don't use the review system) within 30 days of receiving the item to arrange to return the item, and I will fully refund once I have received it in it's original state. Please note that, unless we are at fault, ie; the item is not the same as purchased, is damaged or is not as described, you are responsible for the costs of returning it.
