Announcement   Centuries-old bits of history – some dating to the 1600s, 1700s and 1800s – and the stories these pieces carry are presented for you here at Nostalgie Europe. I’ve explored little villages across the Old World and talked with remarkable villagers who have told me aged tales: the Rotterdam harbor worker who skimmed sugar and tobacco for his family during WWII; the frail woman who collected a house full of beautiful lace in France; the Royal Delftware potters in Holland who let me watch as they painted their famous patterns; the flea-marketers selling generations of their families’ ancient keepsakes. Each piece offers a remarkable story - a chance to peer into a real moment in history - and I’ve opened NOSTALGIEeurope.etsy.com to pass these precious relics on to those who value their sentiment.

Welcome to NOSTALGIE europe! I'm Laurie Poast, an American artist working in a little Dutch atelier just a few steps from Rembrandt's childhood home in Holland. Please talk with me directly if you have any questions about your order.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
Payment
NOSTALGIE europe accepts Paypal, Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover. If you don't have a Paypal account, that's fine! Just choose Paypal and follow the prompts to use your credit or debit card. It is not possible for me to accept checks or money orders at this time. Please complete your payment at the time of your order. In most cases, I'll package up your item and take it straight to the Dutch post office within 24 hours of your payment.

For those who place an order but then negate payment, negative Etsy and/or Paypal feedback will be made in his or her name, and the order will be canceled. If the late payment is not made within 3 days of placing the order, he or she will lose claim to the item(s). This hasn't happened yet, and I very much hope that my customers continue to be responsible and wonderful in every way! If you're not computer savvy and have some trouble, don't worry! Just get in touch with me right away and I'll help.
Shipping
Nostalgie's precious and irreplaceable items over €30 EUR are automatically protected with registered, signature-required shipping with insurance for up to €500 Euro (parcel) or €50 Euro (letter). If you prefer to reduce the shipping cost and carry the liability for loss or damage, I'll happily adjust your shipping charge. Items under €30 EUR are automatically shipped without this protection, and because Nostalgie cannot self-insure or replace these items, I offer you the option to upgrade your package to ship via registered mail with insurance. Either way, I'm happy to make the adjustment. Just make a note in your order or contact me via Etsy convo.

Save money on shipping by ordering multiple items together! At your request, I'll adjust or refund any excess shipping charges that Etsy might calculate for each additional item that can ship together in one package. Often, all the additional items that can fit into one 2 kg (4.4 pound) package can ship for free!

You're welcome to consolidate shipping and save this way by ordering from any of my 3 shops:

NOSTALGIEeurope.Etsy.com
ARTISANIEeurope.Etsy.com
REVERIEeurope.Etsy.com

I package every item with extra care and ship directly from my atelier in Holland. The shipping prices reflect only my cost. I recycle packaging materials when possible.

Gift wrapping (€3) and shipping directly to a gift recipient is possible.

All items are shipped with Priority service via TNT Post, the official postal service of The Netherlands. I cannot self-insure items against loss or damage during shipping, and cannot replace these items, so please do request insurance or registered mail when appropriate at the time of your order. Rush shipping is available at an additional charge. If duties, taxes or fees are ever charged (I haven't seen any yet) they'll be the responsibility of the customer. All orders will be shipped to your Etsy address unless otherwise requested.

Estimated shipping times via TNT Post:

France, Switzerland, Scandinavia: 2-3 days
United States, Canada: 3-6 days
Australia: 5-8

I have never seen a customs delay for any of my packages, but depending on your country's customs service, a delay is possible. So far, my packages have arrived quickly and safely, but it would be sad for a gift to arrive late, so please order in plenty of time for gift giving.
Refunds and Exchanges
Sales are final. In the event that a return or exchange is accepted, the customer will be responsible for all shipping and possible duties or other fees. If a problem arises, however, I'll do all that I can to make it right.
