About TakaraCollectables

Sales 344
On Etsy since 2017

Treasure of the past is for the present

Nowadays, everything is fast produced and mostly outsourced we have very little control of where they are made and what materials they are made of. We also have the modern habit of throwing things away when they don't work for us any more. In the old days, we can't really afford to throw things away because there will be no easy replacement.

So the mission for us is very simple, we want to provide vintage or antique products that may still serve as decorative pieces for you. All our stocks are sourced from auction houses around the UK, directly from Japan for Japanese textile and on rare occasion from private individuals.

We aim to get our parcels delivered to all UK customers within 3 days . For anywhere else please allow 1 to 1.5 week, except that delivery to Australia which may usually take more than 2 week to arrive.

During the festival period, we will aim to dispatch within 1 working day, however the time for delivery is more unpredictable. Due to the high volume experiences by all carriers we use, it may take longer to deliver.
