Package with great care. This is a gift to my husband and he loves every detail of this vintage photo, even the labeling on the back. Thank you so much!

thecathedral opened as a shop in 2010 and brings together a petite collection of vintage found objects, with textiles old and new.

Some pieces are made right here in my studio in London and others are vintage curiosities found on my travels through Europe and occasionally beyond....

I refund any extra postage paid so please use shipping costs as a guide.
I try to post as soon as possible after payment clears. Despatch time depends often on what i'm doing in my non Etsy life - But please let me know if you need something extra quick and I can high tail it to the post office, no problem.

Shipping is by Royal Mail standard service as default. There is no insurance for lost packages with this standard option but if you require a faster or tracked service upgrade let me know - these will have an additional cost but it will be at cost - i'm on first name terms with my post office these days so this wont take me long!

Please make sure your address is correct in your settings. I'm a really small operation and my margins on item costs are small - so repeat postings will be at the buyers cost.
Refunds and Exchanges
Sorry no refunds.

However in the event of a breakage in the post and no additional insurance was taken and it is a packaging fault - please send me a picture including the packaging and we'll try to work something out.

Please do read descriptions VERY carefully.

I try to describe as clearly as possible. But as a vintage seller the majority of my items are pre-loved and will show the signs of age.

If you have any queries or would like a closer image convo me and let me know, i'm always happy to get snappy with my camera.
Additional policies and FAQs
I try to wrap all items safely and nicely in tissue paper and tied with a fabric ribbon. I also try to recycle packaging so sometimes the parcel might look a little clunky but everything inside should be waterproof, safe and nicely wrapped.
