About

Starfish Collectibles - A Work of Love

Hi! My name is Gwen and I am the curator of Starfish Collectibles. I have always been a collector of unique things. My love affair with household vintage items began in my 30's when I started shopping in second hand stores to supply my home. I discovered a whole new world that had existed before I was even born- the 1950's and earlier! I loved looking, finding, and fitting new found treasures into my home. I love things that are cute, have character and a bit of a history.

Happily, my husband Jim shares my enjoyment of vintage items, and also is able to give me the technical support I need when it comes to listing items, uploading photos and so forth.

We hope that you enjoy looking at our shop as much as we enjoy creating it! Be assured that anything that you see or purchase in our shop is from our personal collections. Our home is smoke-free and nothing has been stored in mothballs or anything "nasty".

Shop policies

Last updated on January 30, 2017
Thank you for shopping at Starfish Collectibles. Please feel free to ask questions about any items listed for sale. If you require additional photos, we will be happy to do that for you.

Our mission is to ensure your complete satisfaction when shopping with Starfish Collectibles, from browsing to receiving an item in your home. We photograph and describe items very well, price our items reasonably, and pack your purchase so that it will arrive safely to you.

Once an item is in the hands of Canada Post and other postal agencies, we have no control over how it is handled. For that reason, we do not issue refunds for loss of or damage to the item, except in exceptional cases where it is clear that our packing was deficient, which is very unlikely as we love our items and want them to arrive safely to you!

If live in Canada, then your shipping charge INCLUDES insurance. Note that insurance for glass, pottery and chinaware only covers lost shipments, not breakage. We take great care with wrapping such items, so the risk of breakage if virtually nil.

Residents of all countries other than Canada can obtain insurance by selecting the "Tracked" shipping upgrade option.

Coverage is limited to $100. For values over $100 please contact us for a quote.

Thanks again for looking through our shop, and we hope that you enjoy your visit!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
We carefully inspect each item and photograph and describe each as well as we can. We spend time researching and providing background information about each item, whenever possible. We are not antique or auction experts, so in some cases, the age of the item is our estimate, or best guess based on similar items we have seen, and not a guarantee. Please do your own research if you are unsure about any aspect of the item, and as always, feel free to ask us questions!

As mentioned in our shipping policy statement, we take great care when packing items for shipment. However, once the parcel is in the hands of the post office, we do not have any control over how it is handled, and generally do not refund purchase price or postage costs for broken or lost items. However, if it is clear that our packaging was deficient, an exception may be made and a refund in part or whole will be given.

Most items in our shop are vintage or antique, thus are not new and are sold as is, without warranty or guarantee. We provide detailed images and descriptions, but if you would like more photos or information, or have questions, please ask prior to placing your order. We are happy to spend time with you before you purchase, to ensure your happiness afterwards!

Shipping
We ship to all destinations having regular postal service---if you don't see your location listed, contact us for a fast and accurate rate quotation.

SHIPPING, COMBINED SHIPPING & INSURANCE:
Once payment has been received, shipment will go out the next business day (Monday to Friday) after payment is received. Shipments to destinations outside of Canada will have an appropriate customs declaration attached.

Some heavier (over 1 kg/2.2lbs) items can only be shipped to the United States by expedited parcel rate (Canada Post choice, not ours) and will be more expensive to ship. On the plus side, this rate always includes tracking and insurance. Otherwise, our estimated shipping rates for items are always based upon ordinary mail/no insurance.

Most shipments to international destinations (other than USA) will be sent by the most economical means possible. In most cases this is Canada Post "International Surface Mail". This can take 3 or 4 weeks to European Union, UK, Eire, Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Turkey and Israel. All other destinations vary from 3 weeks to 6 weeks. Several southern hemisphere destinations (in particular Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia and Philippines) can take up to 10 weeks.
If you want faster (air mail) delivery,please contact us prior to purchasing so we can properly advise you of the cost.

COMBINED SHIPPING will be used for multiple purchases whenever it will result in savings for you, the purchaser. In most cases, the rate shown in our listings for "with another item" is not the actual rate; it is an estimate (on the high side) only. If you have already made payment for the listed shipping charge for two or more items, we will pack and weigh the items, find the correct/lower rate for the combined shipment and refund you the difference.

INSURANCE: We pack our items very carefully; however, once they have been delivered to the post office, we have no control over how they are handled. If you have concerns, you may wish to upgrade your shipping option to "Tracked" which includes up to $100 in coverage against loss in transit or damage. There is no coverage available against glass or ceramic breakage, unfortunately, but we pack all items carefully and are confident that this will not be an issue.

Throughout the process from shopping to receiving an item, we will do whatever we can to provide you with an enjoyable experience. We are always open to your feedback for ways to improve our service.

THANK YOU FOR SHOPPING AT STARFISH COLLECTIBLES!

Gwen & Jim

Additional policies and FAQs
We are both collectors of vintage and antique items, although by no means are we experts. You will find that the total of price and delivery cost is very competitive.

FAQ:

1. Where is Riverview?
* Next door to Moncton, New Brunswick in Canada (Snuggled in next to Maine).

2. Can I get my money back if I don't like the item?
*Sorry, but no, unless we made an obvious mistake in describing the item. Take all the time you need before purchasing, because all sales are final.

3. Do I have to pay sales tax?
* We do not charge sales tax, as we are below the sales threshold required for registration with Canada's HST. This does not mean, however, that your jurisdiction (if you live elsewhere than Canada) will not charge sales tax when your purchase passes through the customs inspection process for your country.

4. I live elsewhere than Canada. Do you collect customs fees?
*Not at all. In the event that something we send triggers duty or taxes in your country, the appropriate governmental agency for your country deals with that, not us.
