This little table is going to be such a beautiful addition to my French Fashion room box. It is expertly made and retains a lovely patina! I'm very pleased with my purchase and hope to deal with this marvelous seller again soon!

About

From A Passion To A Business

Hello, my name is Janette and this shop was born of a lifelong passion and interest in interior design. I was born with a gene that has made it absolutely essential to purchase houses that are in the worst possible state. The worse the state, the harder my heart beats. From a fairly young age, I have found endless pleasure (and a little pain) in searching for the unusual and original to furnish my home with.

Moving from our wonderful old 2* listed stone farmhouse in Lincolnshire to the incredible Aveyron Department in France, in 2004, ensured that the passion and interest were on going. Finding so many wonderful, delicious fatigued French finds, meant a natural progression to setting up our business here in France.

We travel far and wide on our buying trips and love to discover fabulous Fatigued French Finds to list on Etsy and our own website. Please visit us often as we regularly list new items.

I get the greatest rush of pleasure, when I buy something because I love it and then a customer purchases it and loves it too. The interaction with people from all over the world is an added bonus.

From small beginnings our business is growing. We have learnt a lot along the way and greatly appreciate the opportunity that we have. Our customers delight is our ultimate aim!

Payment
We accept Paypal, Direct Checkout via Credit Card, and Etsy Gift Certificates.

If you prefer to pay by check, you may do so via electronic echeck through Paypal. However, please be aware that Paypal echecks take a number of days to clear and we will only ship when Paypal advises that the payment has cleared.

If you are a French resident then we will accept a French euro cheque. Occasionally, we have accepted bank transfers from within the Eurozone. For these methods of payment, you will need to request that we set up an "other" form of payment temporarily for you to make your purchase. The "other" method will be closed again once the purchase is made. Anyone using the "other" method when it has been set up for a specific customer will have their order cancelled unless you have previous agreement.

Please understand that the cost of international transfers in another currency to the euro are prohibitively expensive and we cannot accept them.

Please ensure that your shipping address is correct. We will only send to the address given on your Paypal payment or the address given by Etsy, if you pay by Direct Check Out. Please ensure that if you wish to use a delivery address, different to that on your Paypal or Etsy account, that you change the address prior to making payment. - Thank you.

Thanks for your understanding.


THANK YOU.

Shipping
Just a bit about Postage costs - we will go out of our way to save money on Postage whenever possible.

I am constantly asked if the shipping costs are correct and sadly, they always are. For anyone wanting to check the cost of shipping internationally from France, you can find the costs on the La Poste website. Just google: La Poste Tarifs International. I charge you exactly what La Poste charges me and in fact less as on most occasions I always pay the additional insurance required.


We use the following postal methods:

Livres & Brochures, which is a service for books & documents but there is no tracking with this service. This will not be used for books with a value over €10.

Paquet Prio, for items up to 2kgs in weight and up to €150 in value. Delivery Estimate 7 to 21 days depending on location. With this method I have to print the labels for the parcels, which is generally not a problem but if for any reason I have no internet access, or a problem with the printer, PLEASE understand that it may delay the shipment. If this delay causes you a problem, you can upgrade to Colissimo International for the required additional payment. There is no benefit to customers within Europe above the weight limit of 250 grams, where Colissimo still offers the best option. The cost of shipping via the Paquet prio method will have a slightly higher cost than the price on the package as I have to purchase the labels and take time to print them.



Colissimo International is a generally fast and effective method of shipping items world wide. It has a weight limit of 30 kgs for Europe and 20kgs for the rest of the world. There is a limit to the value of insurance allowed with this method, so that may sometimes have an effect on the amount of items that can be combined together. However, in general this will not affect normal sales. Delivery times for this method are approximately 5 to 10 days but will differ depending on the world location.


PLEASE NOTE:
Please always ask about combined shipping rates or in fact any postal questions before purchase - thanks for your understanding.

Unfortunately, we will no longer use any postal service that does not offer signed for receipt on purchases.

Please never ask us to put fraudulent information onto customs forms, this is against the law and we will always refuse to do this.

All items will be posted within 3 days of payment but in most cases we post the next day.

Will all AUSTRALIAN customers please note that due to strict Australian import regulations for wood or bamboo items, we request that the customer ensures that the item will be accepted into the country prior to purchase. It is the customers responsibility to ensure that it will be prior to purchasing.

We believe passionately in recycling and use a lot of recycled packaging for shipments. A lot of our cardboard cartons are generously donated by local shops. We take extreme care to ensure that it is clean and secure before using this packaging. Rest assured that we take the utmost care with packaging your purchases.

Please be aware of the charges which may be levied by your country’s customs, as these charges are always the responsibility of the customer.
Refunds and Exchanges
We hope that you will be delighted with your purchase but if for any reason you are not, then please return the item in its described state within 14 days of your receipt. The return postage is the responsibility of the purchaser. If the item is returned it must be insured up to its value and this is a condition of the return. Please always make contact before returning an item.

We take the greatest care in describing items and in packing items for despatch. In the event that you do receive an item that you believe has been damaged in transit, or is faulty and not as described; please contacts us immediately and within 24 hours of receipt of the item.

Please clearly state the nature of the damage or the fault and provide photographs of the damaged area.

All items returned by you are at your own risk, therefore we advise you to check that the item is properly addressed and adequately packaged. We also strongly recommend obtaining proof of postage and using a traceable and secure method of dispatch when returning goods, as we cannot be held responsible for goods lost in transit.

Once the item is returned it will be checked by us and if it is found to be faulty or damaged as described by you, we will issue you with a full refund. We will need clear documentation that relates to your costs in returning the item, in order to refund your return postage. Refunds will be issued within 14 days via the same method of payment.

If the returned item is not found to be faulty or damaged after it is checked, we will refund the item price only and no return shipping costs will be refunded. Items damaged by the customer will not be refunded.

For parcels that go missing in the post - please always inform us if you have not received your parcel after 20 working days for methods except Colissimo. For Colissimo, please contact us after 10 days. We will then instigate a claim. That will either have the effect of getting the parcel delivered, or of reimbursing the client if it is lost. Please bear with us, while we start the claim to search for your parcel.

Please do not sign for and accept obviously damaged parcels, without clearly marking on the receipt that they were received damaged in transit.
Additional policies and FAQs
I always try to respond to a customer communication within 24 hours. On some occasions due to being out buying, or various other reasons, this may not be possible and I will then endeavour to respond as soon as possible. Please also bear in mind that I am on the Paris timeline and there can be delays due to the time differences across the world.
