It was dreadful. Totally scratched chipped and marked, some yellow mark scratched on it. I put it in the bin- disgusting!!!! I contacted her and was told it is an old item! I knew that before I ordered it, have bought old things before. However, there is a difference between "old" and "trash"!. Val

I am sorry you did not take my offer of a full refund by returning the item. The pictures and description conveyed the vintage wear which was commensurate with age. I attempted several times to have you return the item however you continued to be verbally offensive and insisted on throwing away the vintage item. It is unfortunate that you did not want to work this out via Etsy recommended guidelines. I am glad that all my other reviews are 5 star to reassure other customers of quality and integrity of my business practices. I ended the contact with you wishing you only the best, it's a shame you could not do the same.
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!

Please be aware that once the items are shipped, we have no control over the shippers. If there is a problem, we will submit a claim with you if necessary. We will follow all EU shipping regulations and policies.
You will see a note if I am away on vacation/holiday and there is to be a delay in shipping.

We will abide by the EU regulations and all claims are to be filed through the insurance purchased when item is shipped.

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.
