About

"I collect antiques. Why? Because they're beautiful"

"I collect antiques. Why? Because they're beautiful" - Broderick Crawford

A warm welcome one and all to A Toast to the Past, an eclectic online emporium shop featuring Antiques and Curios from a bygone era.

My passion for the past has continually grown over time from attending a small monthly country auction when I was youngster to traveling the length and breadth of the UK trying to find those hidden gems that have become lost and forgotten in time. Browsing Antique auctions and attending fairs is a weekly occurrence now and has developed in to an addiction - I cannot pass a second hand shop without going in and having a rummage!

The interest in Antiques and the past has been passed down the family bloodline for generations, Georgian ancestors surrounded themselves with quality goods and my Great Great Grandmother had an Antiques store in Newcastle but unfortunately I haven't been able to find an archive photo of it yet!

A Toast to the Past contains an array of goods to suit every budget. If there is anything in particular you are after or just want to say "Hi" then please do get in contact :-)

With very best wishes,
Matt Cook,
A Toast to the Past.

To fulfil your order placed through Etsy you must provide me with certain information (which you authorised Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, postal address, email address, telephone number, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information if you contact me directly for a “gift” order.

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
• As needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;

• If necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law;

• As necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Data retention:

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy.
