Announcement   NEW WOODEN JEWELLERY PIECES ADDED EACH MONTH SO DON'T FORGET TO CHECK BACK TO SEE WHAT I HAVE ON OFFER!!!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My name is Katie and I live in Surrey in the UK with my 3 children and boyfriend.

I am a collector of vintage greetings cards, postcards, photographs, ephemera, ladies vintage clothing, jewellery and Japanese Pose Dolls. I am also a photographer.

Wooden Jewellery - These pieces are truly one of a kind and are inspired by the very best illustrations I have cleaned up from vintage greetings cards and postcards etc. The images are digitally printed and laser cut onto wood. I then transform these adorable pieces into collar clips, brooches, necklaces and earrings.

Heirloom Plates - I could never find a vintage plate with an image on it that I liked. I knew that with all my wonderful images dating back to Victorian times I could use a number of them and somehow apply these onto vintage plates. This was over 18 months ago...I now have a beautiful collection of decals I have made up from all my vintage greetings card and postcard images and now I seek out the sweetest of vintage plates so that I can apply my vintage decals to them.

Vintage Inspired Photographic cufflinks - These are high quality unisex cufflinks with my vintage images inside them.

Photographs - I am a collector of authentic original vintage photographs and specialise in photographs which have been used for newspaper reports from the 1920's - 1960's mainly. The best photographs I will scan and restore myself and add my own special touches to bring these photographs back to life. These prints are available for sale in my shop. I also sell prints of photographs I have taken myself, the majority of which feature dolls from my pose doll collection.

Vintage Cards - Over the years I have collected thousands of vintage greetings cards. These date mostly from the 1920's - 1950's and 95% of them are American. Many of these cards are sold in my shop and I often clean up scanned illustrations of very special ones, add my own personal touch and messages and sell these as jpegs through my shop. In order to avoid problems with the new digital laws I have made sure that none of my images are automatic downloads but infact images I have to personally email over in jpeg form myself. This will nearly always be done in less than 24 hours from when the order is placed.

Vintage Ladies Clothing - I love the idea of rescuing an item from days gone by and giving new life to it...who wants to look like everyone else!!! I sell vintage ladies clothing in my shop and also upcycled/refashioned vintage clothing which I have altered into something else.
Please ALWAYS double check the measurements given as sizes differ from country to country.

Japanese Pose Dolls - I am a super collector of vintage Japanese pose dolls and have owned at one time over 350 dolls. I have been featured in a doll book called 'Adventures in Cute Culture' by Pamela Klaffke along with some of my pose doll photographs. Occasionally I decide to sell a doll on and when I do these dolls can be found in my shop. For those of you that cannot afford one of these dolls then please check out my pose doll photographs taken from my own personal collection.

Shop policies

Last updated on January 7, 2015
Welcome to a wonderful blast from the past.

Posh Totty Designz is a little shop that gives you the chance to own something unique and beautiful which will hopefully show off your uniqueness and be appreciated not only by you but others too who get a chance to view your precious little finds.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
Please could you kindly email me if you are unable to pay via paypal within 3 days from purchasing an item/items from my shop.

Should you fail to email me and haven't paid within a week of purchasing then I will relist the item.

If you have no intension of paying for an item then PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE.
Shipping
DOMESTIC:

I live in the UK and endevour to get all domestic orders out within 2 days from receiving your paypal payment from Monday - Friday.

INTERNATIONAL:

These orders can sometimes go out as quickly as the domestic orders however they can sometimes take 4-5 days if I am not going to the post office.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE:

I will email you on the day I ship your order so that you have some idea of when you can expect to receive it. Domestic orders usually take 1-2 days to arrive as items are sent out via 1st class post. International orders take a minimum of 5 working days and it has been known for things to take up to a month to arrive.

POSTAGE COSTS:

I do not like to profit from postage and packaging and do try and keep my fees as low as I can especially as 80% of my orders are infact international. The orders are sent standard airmail and as such I will never have any tracking details for your item. Should you require tracking etc please mail me when making payment for your order requesting what type of shipment you would like and I will invoice you for the extra costs.
Refunds and Exchanges
As a seller I try and do as much as I can to resolve any problems that may arise once your order leaves me.

Each case is treated on an individual basis however PLEASE email me should you have ANY problems at all so that I can do my very best to help and resolve any problem where I can.

I will NOT accept returns on clothing that simply 'doesn't fit' so please double check the measurements PRIOR to purchasing. Thank you.
Additional policies and FAQs
FEEDBACK:

Please be a good Etsy customer and email me with any problems you may have PRIOR to leaving feedback. I truly believe it is only right to give the seller the opportunity to resolve any issues before their reputation is discredited. Thank you for this.

PHOTOGRAPHY:

All my photographs are taken by myself unless stated otherwise and are therefore copyrighted to Posh Totty Designz and should NOT be used for resale. My photographs have been taken over a very long period of time and are strictly MY PROPERTY. Please note that any sales of my items does not transfer copyright. I would also ask that you respect any of my original ideas and not copy them.

SOLD AS SEEN:

I sell many vintage items in my shop and try and take photographs and describe them as best as I can. Sometimes they may have a flaw that is very small - however if I see this I will mention as I am very honest and hate the idea of someone purchasing an item and getting a nasty surprise or they are disappointed. Please understand though that it is very rare that a vintage item is in immaculate condition. Pristine items will have a premium price tag but I try and sell for a fair price that goes with that items condition. Should you like more photographs or you require more information then please just drop me a line and I will be happy to help where I can.

ETHOS:

Posh Totty Designz encapsulates individuality and allows the owner of any of my items to express themselves with abandon and bring their fantasies to reality.

In this throw away society I try to bring life back into vintage pieces, I find the beauty in the old and bring them shouting and screaming into the 21st century.
