About

A Potted History of Gillard & May

Welcome to the Etsy shop of Gillard & May.

My name is Linda and I run our online Etsy shop. I met my partner Martyn in 2007 and moved from Lancashire to be with him here in Yorkshire, UK in December 2011.

I spent many years (too many to name really!) working in an office in Manchester - I worked in marine insurance as a Marine Claims Adjuster - and gave up my job in November 2011 to set up our online antiques and vintage business.

Martyn's main business is running his own household removals and storage business, but running a business was completely new to me so I am grateful for all the help he has given me over the last few years!

I have always had a love of costume jewellery which has now developed into a love of all kinds of vintage, retro and antique jewellery items and, as you can see from the items listed in our Etsy and online shops I absolutely adore brooches!! So you will always find plenty of brooches to choose from here in our Etsy shop and on our website!!

Like most ladies, I also love handbags! So you will find quite a few of these listed in my Etsy shop from time to time.

I look forward to doing business with you!

Welcome to the Etsy shop of Gillard & May. We sell an eclectic mix of vintage and antique jewellery, accessories and collectables.

I love vintage and antique jewellery and love researching my new finds and I am continually looking for nice, interesting vintage and antique jewellery and collectibles for our Etsy shop and I hope you will enjoy buying them! I feel that the items I sell deserve to be found good homes and I will try to sell at reasonable prices that are affordable to everyone.

For items over £35 I will send these by a Royal Mail tracked service and, for a limited period of time, I am offering free shipping on some items priced over £35.00. All silver items and many of those over £20.00 have a higher shipping rate and will be sent using a tracked service through the Royal Mail. This is to ensure that they get to you more quickly and to provide the correct insurance cover for your item.

We also have a Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/#!/GillardAndMay) and a website (http://www.gillardmay.co.uk/), which I hope you will also take a look at.

I look forward to doing business with you.

Payment
Please note that I will ship the item only once funds have been cleared.

I accept credit card and PayPal payments through Etsy.

All my listings say that my shpping times are 1-2 business (working) days and, although I do try to get to the post office to post items every day, sometimes I am unable to get there some days. Therefore if you do need an item quickly, then please send me a message so that I can post the item to you sooner.

Please note that I volunteer in a local charity shop on Wednesdays and sometimes do extra days when needed. On these days I may not be able to reply to any queries or post any items. I will reply as soon as I am able and will post the next day.

Thank you

Shipping
I am happy to ship to anywhere in the world!

The prices on my listings reflect the new postage charges that came into effect in the UK in April 2016 and for some items over £20.00, including all silver and high value items, the shipping costs reflect the need to send these items using a Royal Mail tracked - this is to ensure that you receive the item quickly and that the correct insurance cover is provided.

Please be aware that I only ship through Royal Mail, but if you would like a quote using any other service then please send me a message and we can negotiate on which service to use and the cost of using it.

If an item is lost in the post, then it will be necessary to wait a certain length of time before I am able to claim off the Royal Mail (this will vary depending on which country it has been shipped to) - I always obtain a proof of posting and will make the claim myself against the Royal Mail.

If an item arrives damaged, then I do reserve the right to request a photograph of the damaged item before I refund any money to you.

PLEASE SEND ME A MESSAGE THROUGH ETSY IF YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED AN ITEM OR IF AN ITEM ARRIVES DAMAGED SO THAT WE CAN SORT THE MATTER OUT. PLEASE DO NOT OPEN A CASE EITHER THROUGH ETSY OR PAYPAL WITHOUT FIRST CONTACTING ME......I WILL DO MY UTMOST TO HELP TO SORT OUT THE MATTER TO YOUR SATISFACTION.

Thank you
Refunds and Exchanges
If an item is lost or damaged or is not what you expected, then please send me a message and I will do my best to put things right - please contact me as soon as possible.

PLEASE NOTE that within Europe, particularly the European Union, the distance selling regulations means that you have 14 days in which to change your mind if you are not happy with your purchase for whatever reason, including if you have changed your mind about your purchase. Therefore if you have changed your mind, then you can return your item to me within these 14 days. However,if you do decide to change your mind or are not happy with your purchase, then please send me a message through Etsy to let me know that you are returning the item to me so I can keep an eye open for it in the post. PLEASE NOTE THAT I WILL REFUND THE MONEY TO YOU ONLY ONCE I HAVE RECEIVED THE RETURNED ITEM AND THAT YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE COST OF THE POSTAGE FOR THE RETURNED ITEM.

If an item is lost in the post, then it will be necessary to wait a certain length of time before I am able to claim off the Royal Mail (this will vary depending on which country it has been shipped to) - I always obtain a proof of posting and will make the claim myself against the Royal Mail.

If an item arrives damaged, then I do reserve the right to request a photograph of the damaged item before I refund any money to you.

If an item is not what you expected or not as described, then my apologies and please let me know so I can offer a partial refund if you still wish to keep the item or a full refund once the item has been returned to me. Please also see the note above regarding the 14 days cooling off period within Europe and please also note that you will be responsible for the cost of postage, and insurance, for the return of the item to me.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

TERMS & CONDITIONS:

Please note that the items we sell are vintage and therefore may have signs of wear and tear commensurate with their age.

UK & EU SALES - RETURNS AND 'COOLING OFF' PERIOD
I hope that you will always be satisfied with your purchase, however please note that under the terms of the distance selling regulations within the EU and UK, all buyers are entitled to a 'cooling off' period within which time you can change your mind regarding your purchase and return the item to us. This 'cooling off' period is 14 days from the date you receive the item. If you do change your mind regarding your purchase, then please send me a message BEFORE returning your item so we can agree about how the item is returned and who should pay for the return postage, as well as the tracking and insurance of higher valued items. I am also offering this 'cooling off' period to all my customers worldwide.

CUSTOMS, DUTIES & TAXES

Please be aware that the listing prices do not take into account any customs or taxes costs which will vary from country to country.

Therefore please be aware that ALL customs, duties and taxes costs will be the responsibility of the purchaser.

POSTAGE & PACKING
I am happy to ship to anywhere in the world!

The prices on my listings reflect the new postage charges that came into effect in the UK in April 2016 and for some items over £20.00, including all silver and high value items, the shipping costs reflect the need to send these items using a Royal Mail tracked - this is to ensure that you receive the item quickly and that the correct insurance cover is provided.

Please be aware that I only ship through Royal Mail, but if you would like a quote using any other service then please send me a message and we can negotiate on which service to use and the cost of using it.

If an item is lost in the post, then it will be necessary to wait a certain length of time before I am able to claim off the Royal Mail (this will vary depending on which country it has been shipped to) - I always obtain a certificate of posting and will make the claim myself against the Royal Mail.

Please note that I will only post items once I have received payment and, whilst I do try to post as soon as possible after payment, this is subject to when I am able to get to the post office.

Please also note that postage costs include not only the basic postage cost, but also the cost of packaging as well as the time taken to pack items and the time and petrol cost of taking them to the post office. Lower postage costs do not include the cost of a tracked service - should you require a tracked and signed for service, then please select the postage upgrade option when you are checking out.

I will refund postage if I feel that the postage charged to you was excessive, but I do still need to take into account the cost of packing etc when calculating the refund. I can combine postage on multiple items - please ask. If I am unable to calculate the exact cost of postage for multiple items, then I will refund any difference, after taking into account packing costs etc.

DAMAGED ITEMS
I always try to pack items well so that they arrive in good condition, however sometimes damage or breakages do occur during the postal journey. If this is the case, then please let me know as soon as possible by sending me a message through Etsy - I will always try to make matters right with you, refunding the money as necessary (although I do reserve the right to request a photograph of the damaged item).

DELAYED & NON-DELIVERED ITEMS
If an item does not arrive in a reasonable length of time or you have not received an item, please send me a message first and I will reply as soon as I can. I always get a proof of posting from the post office so I can prove an item has been posted. If it does turn out that an item has gone missing in the post, then I will refund the money and place a claim against the post office myself.

Thank you

Linda
