Who are Pumpjack & Piddlewick?
Our life is about wine, animals, weird tools and anything French, all of which act as inspiration for many of the vintage, antique and artisan items you will find in our shop. Pumpjack works the vines and makes amazing wines, whilst Piddlewick details life in France in our blog. We lead a homesteading and healthy lifestyle and work surrounded by pet ducks, including our Maggie, 3 cats, and a standard sized dachshund whilst restoring our house and garden. It can get delightfully busy.

Rainy day, so the office is a quiet haven for our Gigi, who likes to 'assist' me as I add new items to the shop.
Finished a little lap quilt made from wool socks and sweaters for Pumpjack's office. Ready in time for Christmas. We simply love handmade presents (as well as vintage) here at PumpjackPiddlewick.

Finding what there is to Find in France

We're Pumpjack & Piddlewick, a creative redhead and an eccentric Oenologist Negociant (fancy terms for wine maker). We are pursuing our dream of making our own wine in France. We lead a homesteading, waste-not-want-not lifestyle in conjunction with ducks, cats and a standard sized Dachshund. It can get wondrously busy.

We love and live all things vintage, from an amazing corkscrew to a quirky French cheese platter. We particularly appreciate the time and effort that went in to a beautifully hand embroidered linen to the craftsmanship of well made wooden furniture.

Alongside our wine making, and with true entrepreneurial spirit, we also put our creative juices (or should that be creative wine?) to the fore in finding fabulous antiques, vintage & retro gifts and the odd funny item we sell here on Etsy. (Ok, and a few we keep.)

If you would like to follow our story, our Blog has our discoveries and musings on life here in France, along with tails of our zany collection of animals who make us smile each and every day. www.pumpjackpiddlewick.com

Oh, et mais Oui, feel free to buy something from our Etsy shops. Honest, we won't mind.

    Owner, Creator

    I'm Piddlewick to our Pumpjack, a creative redhead with a smile. Our French finds and handmade items showcase my passions for the traditional, old-fashioned, but hopefully with a flair of a certain joie de vivre.

  • David Blake

    Eccentric Muse

    This is Pumpjack to our Piddlewick, an eccentric, mad scientist on an Einstein scale, an Oenologist, otherwise known as a wine maker. His creative juices know no bounds, and are inspirational. Oh, and he's a dab hand at making things as well.

Frequently asked questions
Shipping Times

Once we post your item, it will generally take:
2 – 3 business days within France
5 – 7 business days within the EU
7 – 10 business days to the rest of the world
These times may of course vary, as they are dependent on the Postal Peoples and the various situations around the world.

All our items are sent tracked, so you can monitor its progress.

Shipping Upgrades & Express Delivery

If your item is small enough (under 3cm / 1 inch), we will send it in a padded envelope. You may upgrade to have your item shipped in a box if you prefer. This may incur an additional cost. *The delivery times will be the same*

We do not offer Express or overnight delivery in general, particularly outside of France as the prices start at 99 euros for a Chronopost box and must be purchased ahead of time, negating the speed of the delivery.

Multiple items and shipping costs

If you order more than one item from us, sometimes the automatic calculation comes out too high. We always refund any shipping overcharges.

International Shipping Costs

If an item is over 3 cm / 1 inch it must go in a box. The Post Office cost to send a box is based on its weight.

At Pumpjack & Piddlewick we do not make money off of shipping. We charge only what the Post Office charges us.

Items Sent as Gifts

Marking an item purchased from us as a Gift will include a receipt without a price. You will also have the option to include a special message.

Please note: if we are sending a Gift direct to your recipient ~
Any items over 3 cm / 1 inch will be sent in a box. A box sent outside of France requires a form that must state what the item is and its value. An additional Customs form is also required for shipping outside of the EU, which also states what the item is and its purchase cost.
Item's under 3 cm / 1 inch are sent in a padded envelope and do not require a shipping or customs form.

We offer gift wrapping at an additional cost.

What does Retro, Vintage and Antique mean?

Vintage or Antique means not new / used / second hand / previously owned.

Vintage is older than 20 years and less than 100 years old.
Antique is over 100 years old, eg before 1920.
Retro is a style statement, generally referring to the latter half of the 20th century.

We do our best to describe each item accurately, including any imperfections. We use the pictures to try and show you all aspects of the item. Please do not hesitate to ask questions or request additional photos.
