I just love the Brassings. Beautiful condition! Sherry is a very friendly and efficient seller. I will definitely be doing business with her again should I be looking for something unique that catches my eye on her listings. Thank you Sherry and best of luck with future sales!

About

Retromagination: Treasures From a Vintage Antique Retro Travel Junkie!

Retromagination, a treasure chest of eclectic finds from around the globe including antiques, vintage, weird oddities and curiosities, and stage, movie, theater props. You can enter my shop here: www.etsy.com/shop/Retromagination
My story begins at birth, as I was born into a family where my grandparents had the antique addiction. My idea of learning history was to figure out when and how an old interesting item I had discovered fit into people's everyday lives in days gone by.
As soon as I could independently travel, I was off to discover the world. After traveling cross country in the U.S., I started exploring Europe. I have now made the U.K. my home with my husband and pets as it is a great central hub to explore the rest of the world. Nothing else gives me a high like traveling to some previously unchartered territory, immersing myself in another culture and finding a treasure to share with others.
Stop by, inspire your imagination and travel through time!

Questions about your order?
Please if you have any problems with your order.
We hope you are very pleased with your purchase. Please contact us if you have any problems. We strive to fulfill buyer's satisfaction.
As we post with a certificate of posting and a tracking number, with appropriate insurance amount, we will submit a claim with you if necessary. For larger and more valuable items you will need to sign for them.
If an item is being returned as a mutual agreement, the same tracking and insurance must be purchased for return of the item. The item must be returned in the same condition as when sent to you. We do charge a restocking fee, assessed on the individual item. We do not reimburse our shipping cost to you or your shipping cost to return to us. If the item is not returned in the same condition as when sent to you, you will be charged a damaged item fee or given a partial credit towards a future purchase. You must notify us on the date of receipt of the item (date confirmed by tracking and your signature) if you need to return it.
If you are unavailable to receive and sign for your package and do not respond to the postal messages and the item is returned to me, you will have to pay an additional re-shipping fee via paypal to have the item re-shipped to you. Or, you can choose to have a partial store credit (minus the original shipping fee and a re-stocking fee) that has no expiration date.
Payment
Paypal, direct checkout with credit or debit card, or bank transfer only. Payment to be received within 24 hours of purchase please.
Shipping
Your item will be shipped within 7 days of receipt of payment; usually within just a day or two. If you are purchasing from overseas, please allow for extra delivery time due to customs, etc.
We will abide by the EU regulations and all claims are to be filed through the insurance purchased when item is shipped.
Shipping overseas can take up to one-six weeks, especially in bad weather.
All items shipped with a Certificate of Posting and tracking number, which will track from sent to delivered and the process in between. We will submit a claim with you if necessary if there is a problem. For larger and more valuable items we will send them with a signature required. Airsure is most commonly used when it is an available shipping option.
If you are not available to receive the signature required package and do not respond to the messages left for you by your postal service and the package is returned back to me for failure of delivery, you will have to make a new shipping payment via paypal to me for it to be re-shipped. Or, you can have a partial credit, minus the original shipping fee and re-stocking fee, which will have no expiration date.
You will see a note if I am away on vacation holiday and if there will be a delay on shipping. Your patience is greatly appreciated.
Additional policies and FAQs
Most of the items I list have been previously owned and may show some wear as is typical for antique/vintage/retro pieces. I will try to note in my descriptions if there are any flaws other than normal wear commensurate with the age of the item not shown in photos. Items will not be in new condition as they are not new or reproduction. If in doubt please convo any questions.
