Announcement   PLEASE CLICK HERE FOR INFORMATION ABOUT CHRISTMAS ORDER TIMES AND DELIVERY.

WHAT ARE YOUR LAST RECOMMENDED ORDER DATES FOR CHRISTMAS?

These are my last *recommended* order dates for Christmas. By ordering before my last order dates, I will fulfill your order before the last recommended postage date for your country. I do however recommend ordering as early as possible. Many of my items now ship next day meaning I can ship for longer. Please see individual listings for more information. For these items, I can ship right up to the Royal Mail's last postage date.

UK (Special Delivery/Tracked 24) – Please contact me for more information and to see if I can fulfill this. The very last shipping date for the UK is 22nd December with Special Delivery. This incurs an additional charge.

UK – Monday 17th December (Items which ship next day - 19th)

Belgium, France, Ireland, Luxembourg – Thursday 13th December (Items which ship next day - 17th)

Austria, Denmark, Germany, Iceland, Finland, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland – Wednesday 12th December (Items which ship next day - 16th)

Canada, Czech Republic, Italy, Poland and USA – Tuesday 11th December (Items which ship next day - 13th)

WHAT IF I MISSED THE ORDER DEADLINE FOR MY COUNTRY?

Each of these last recommended order dates is 3 working days before the last shipping date for each country. For products which ship next day (please see individual listings for more information or contact me) the products can be ordered the day before and shipped by the last postage date for your country. For products with a longer turnaround time, I may be able to still ship your item in time if it is after these dates but cannot guarantee it.

If you order after the last recommended order date I will get your parcel out as soon as possible. Many items I have are ready to ship or have a 1 day turnaround time so may be able to still reach you before the last shipping dates for the Royal Mail. Please message me if you would like to check an individual item.

WHAT IS YOUR TURNAROUND TIME?

My standard turnaround time is: 1 working day. Some listings will be 1-3 working days (please see individual listings for more information). Please contact me if you need more information.

WHAT DATE WILL YOU BE SHIPPING UP UNTIL?

I will be shipping up until 22nd December.

CAN MY ITEMS BE GIFT WRAPPED/SENT DIRECTLY TO GIFT RECIPIANT/BE SENT WITHOUT THE PRICING?

Yes, I gift wrap all parcels as standard. Hats come gift wrapped in tissue paper and smaller items come in gift bags. Jewellery comes in an organza bag which then goes into one of my gift bags. I can send your parcel directly to a gift recipient, please mark your order as gift at the checkout and I will leave out the receipt. There is also the option to add a gift note.

If the item is a gift but you are shipping it to yourself before gifting it, please do not click ‘mark as gift’ and I will still gift wrap but will also include a receipt for you.

I also offer a special gift wrapping service for an additional charge which is available on each listing. This means that your gift will come in wrapping paper and looking extra special.

ANY FURTHER QUESTIONS?

Please send me an Etsy convo :). I will respond as quick as I can (normally within a couple of hours)

Please note that the postal system gets very busy during the Christmas period and so I would recommend ordering as soon as possible. If ordering by my last recommended order dates, I guarantee I will get your parcel in by the last post to your country which should then be delivered in time for Christmas. However, as I am relying on a 3rd party service (postal service) I cannot guarantee Christmas delivery so please order within plenty of time.

About

The Dorothy Days - Selling vintage and handmade from my home in the English countryside.

Welcome to The Dorothy Days and thank you for looking at my about page. I hope that through this page you will find out a little more about me and my shop.

My family are originally from London but we moved to a little 18th century thatched cottage in a tiny village in rural Dorset, England. I now spend my time between Dorset and beautiful Brighton which is a little further along the coast.

I had a wonderful childhood growing up in the countryside. The village was a magical place to grow up. Still to this day there are no road markings or street lights and it was the kind of place where you know all your neighbours. The warmer months were spent playing in the garden, lazing in the sunshine in meadows and attempting to make our very own flower perfumes (!) and the winter months were spent making dens in the woods, splashing in puddles and frequently getting stuck in mud (!) and then coming in and warming up in front of the fireplace.

My love for the countryside is something that inspires my work and also the style of the vintage items which I sell in my shop. I hope to bring a little slice of the English countryside to you all!

I have based my shop around one of my favourite quotes. The quote is by William Morris (1834 - 1896) who was an English textile designer and artist. He said, “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful”, with this quote in mind I have filled my shop with beautiful handmade items and vintage items which are both beautiful and useful. My vintage items such as my teacups look beautiful when displayed but can also be used and this is a fantastic way to bring life back to old object.

I am proud to be a small, independant shop which is individual and greatly influenced by my own style and tastes.I love both the vintage and the crafting aspects of my shop as both of these are a huge passion of mine and something I really enjoy doing. I hope that my passion for these objects comes through in my shop. You certainly won't be able to find this on the highstreet!

Aside from crafting and vintage, my other passions include....

* Art- Art has always been a major passion of mine. You will often find me wandering around art galleries in total awe!!

*Tea - If you have seen my Twitter you will already know this about me, I am rather obsessed with tea and never far from a trusty cuppa! When I am crafting tea helps fuel my creativity and when I am listing new items it keeps me going.

I really hope this has given you a little insight into my shop and let you know a little bit about me too. I am always happy to hear from you, please feel free to drop me a message with a question, comment or custom request.

Please also see my social media sites, you can now find me on Instagram, blogger, Twitter, Pinterest and Facebook

Have a wonderful day!

Frequently asked questions
Wholesale availability

Please contact me via Etsy convo or thedorothydays@hotmail.co.uk for wholesale enquiries

Gift wrapping and packaging

I gift wrap all orders so they are perfect for giving as a gift or a lovely treat for yourself

Smaller items: Placed in an organza bag and placed into a branded gift bag.
Larger items: Gift wrapped in tissue paper

Breakable items are carefully wrapped in protective packaging to ensure your item is protected during shipping. I use lots of bubble wrap and protective nuggets when I wrap. I like to be as eco friendly as possible so use recycled packaging material when I can. Prints are sent in protective sleeves to prevent any water damage in transit.

Chains

Please note that style of chain may vary from the photo as I have upgraded my chains. The new chains are pretty, more sturdy and have better clasps. I hope that you will prefer these. If you would like to request the old style chain, please message me

Photographs

I photograph all my items in high resolution so you can see in detail the item. Please click on the photographs to view the items in high resolution. Please be aware that due to different lighting and different computer monitor settings the colour of the item may vary slightly from the photograph.

Feedback

Leaving Etsy feedback is really appreciated and really helps my small shop to grow.

If you have any problems with your order, please do contact me via convo about the issues you are having first so that I can try to get them resolved for you.

I always love to see your photos of my products, please tag them #thedorothydays so I can find them on social media and share!
