On Etsy since 2017

Welcome to our Curiosity shop... Home to creations, gifts, vintage, home decor and curiosities.

Hi my name is Sue, Founder and owner of Suescuriosities68 and SuesCrafts68 (our sister shop).
Link below for SuesCrafts68.

My Crafts and curiosity shop sells a varied range vintage and handmade craft items of all different varieties. This is why we chose to be a curiosity shop as you never quite know what's coming next and we have a very varied range of items.

Due to different family collaborators volunteering their time to craft our craft items, they are varied.
These focus on our interests which include steampunk fashion, gothic, fantasy, alternate, restoration and upcycling.

We are also a family of vintage and antique enthusiast so we also supply good quality vintage items which are sourced from various outlets, we especially like to try to find qwerky and curious items hence the shop name.

Shipping to the UK and USA on selected items. Please see each item details for USA shipping costs. Uk shipping costs are included in the overall price.

Feel free to message with any enquiries or order details.

We are on twitter, instagram and facebook and regularly post to them and release news and pictures of our crafting process on these. Click the links below to access these.
Feel free to browse, follow/favourite us and enjoy :)

Frequently asked questions
Vintage and antique item conditions?

Due to the age and wear and tear of vintage and antique items over the years some items may have some minor imperfections.
We always aim to include all of these in the item descriptions and photographs so please observe these closely.
We are always happy to answer any questions you have about our shop or any of the items in it so please message us if you want to tell us anything or have any questions and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Product photographs and descriptions?

Please be aware that the products colours may vary slightly in tone depending on what the settings are on each viewing device and camera. We aim to post photos as true to colour as possible but they may sometimes appear darker or lighter on screens.
We also aim to include photos of any wear on items particularly vintage and will list them in the description so please observe them closely. Any questions about any product please contact me.

We always put in lots of effort with handmade items and strive to make them as unique as possible as well as durable.

Shipping to the UK and USA

Shipping to both the UK and USA are always by royal mail signed for delivery. This is to ensure both the buyer and ourselves are able to track the parcel through transit ensuring its safe arrival and allowing us to act quickly in the event of a missing parcel.

If you are a USA customer and are interested in a item not selected please message us.
(Please allow time for a reply due to different time zones)

Why do some items shipping to the USA have higher shipping costs?

Some items outside the UK have higher shipping costs due to the size of the item, location and its protective shipping packaging. We currently opperate fixed cost shipping profiles depending on the size and weight of an item based on both research with the postal service and past experiences.
All shipping is tracked to ensure delivery and we aim to charge shipping as close as possible to its cost.
Each item has its shipping details listed in their advert so please read these details carefully. Some items may be subject to a customs charge in your country so please be aware of this when purchasing.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Some of our items now come in a gift box or bag. These are usually specified in the advert.
Please message us if you would like to know or request the item in a gift box (as some adverts may have been missed when adding this info.)
Please note some items may not be eligible for a gift box depending on size and supply.
But we will always aim to achieve this with relevant items.

Researching the items we sell.

As we list our items we always take the time to research the items we are unsure about in order to aim to be as accurate as possible about the item we are selling.
We always aim to provide the correct information based on our findings, however occasionally we can make mistakes.
We will then correct these as soon as possible.
We love customer feedback, if you find information in a listing is incorrect please feel free to message me and i will look into it and add corrections as necessary.

Under Etsy policy buyers are responsible for any applicable customs fees of their country.
