Announcement   Hello, & welcome to my shop, where I sell items both vintage and antique, I hope you will enjoy browsing here. 2017 will be my 44th. year as a dealer in Antiques & collectibles.
My main interests are vintage buttons (through being allowed in my Great Aunt's button box) and buckles (after finding a Bohemian one as a child in the 1940's) and old interesting textiles & antiques in general, but I also have to confess that my interests don't stop there but encompass Archaeology, ethnology & various other interests too numerous to mention.

Some of my lace & buttons were used in the film "Elizabeth" with Kate Blanchet, & my cufflinks in the film "Phantom of the Opera", I have also supplied items for Television & the Stage. Various items were in "Millers Collectibles" from 2002/3 to 2008.

I am also a professional artist, I have a board with some of my work on my Pinterest site. Elected to the "Society of Women Artists", elected "Associate "British Watercolour Society" & elected "Associate Yorkshire Artists", also in "Who's Who in Art", exhibited widely in Yorkshire & various Galleries & Exhibitions, & my work is also in private collections both in the UK & abroad.

Please visit my Pinterest site at http://pinterest.com/theladyatskiers. All the photographs on my Pinterest site were taken by myself, unless otherwise specified. There are boards of various subjects, from boards of Barnsley, my Artwork, Natural History, Momento Mori etc.,

NB "The Lady at Skiers" (pronounced "Sky-ers") was my grandmother, who lived in a cottage in the woods at Skiers Spring, Hoyland, South`Yorks. the cottage was on land belonging to the Fitzwilliams of Wentworth Woodhouse, Wentworth near Barnsley, South Yorkshire, the cottage was sadly demolished in the 1960's & is now completely overgrown, you would never know it had been there, but I still visit the spot.

Such an exquisite piece! Your shop owner Marlene is the sweetest, she sent me detailed instructions on how to use the buckle for a belt and included a lovely surprise with my order. I am sure to come back soon!

Payment
I reduce postage costs when multiple items are purchased. I package items together where possible and refund any excess postage. I may divide up large or valuable orders into several packages.

Shipping is always by first class post. International orders are always sent by Royal Mail Airmail unless otherwise requested. I am happy to quote for alternative delivery methods upon request.

Payment is to be made within 3 days unless otherwise agreed, and prior to dispatch. If payment has not been made within the agreed period then the transaction will be deemed cancelled and the item will be relisted.
Shipping
Items are shipped on weekdays Monday to Friday excluding UK Bank Holidays, and within 3-5 UK working days from payment.

Delivery is usually within 2-3 working days within the UK. For international orders (outside the UK) delivery is usually 5-7 working days, but can take up to 4-6 weeks, particularly in poor weather.

I use untracked, uninsured and non-signed-for mail services by default, but will quote for other delivery methods upon request.

Please note that all items are dispatched with an accurate customs declaration as per the sale price.

Returns are accepted provided that they are posted within 14 days of receipt, and are returned in good condition. Please contact me in the first instance by email to discuss any returns.

The purchase price for agreed returns will be refunded upon receipt of the goods, provided they are in the same condition as sold.

Return postage, packaging and losses are the responsibility of the buyer. Please keep a proof of postage to resolve any issues over losses.
Additional policies and FAQs
All items I sell are either vintage or antique. I have been careful to note any age marks, flaws, damage etc. in the item descriptions, but items are sold as seen.

Should you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me.
