I always give a very accurate description of each item listed, noting any flaws as I feel this is so important. How many times have you purchased an item from someone on etsy or ebay which has just been described as "vintage condition" and then when it arrives it looks more like something that has been dropped a dozen times onto hard concrete and scratched all over!!

Vintage condition does mean it may have a few surface marks which are considered acceptable with any used vintage item so that's fine. If any of my items listed have anything other than acceptable marks I will write it in the listing.

My photos are also an important part of the description. I try to take all photos outside in natural daylight whenever possible so the colours are a accurate as possible. We all have different laptops nowadays and like to have our own monitor settings set to our own personal preference so please bear this in mind that colours may vary from monitor to monitor. People are also using mobiles more often (I can't live without my iPhone!!) as well so the pictures may appear slightly different from my originals.

The vast majority of my photographs are take with a macro lens so will show extreme close up photos especially on jewellery. Sometimes slight scratches show up on an item which are barely visible to the naked eye, unless you have really great eyesight, so please be aware that some photos are very magnified. I will give a detailed size of each item as well so please use a ruler when trying to visualise the size of an item.

Also please always compare prices on items for sale on other websites & etsy, not just with my goods but other sellers goods too. If you can buy it cheaper elsewhere than that's great but always shop around. There are some sellers on etsy who DO charge astronomical prices for exactly the same item that I will sell, and it will be no better. Just because something is really expensive it doesn't make it any better than another item of the same description and quality. For example, if I have a KIGU compact in mint condition at $35 and another seller has exactly the same item at $85 you will be getting the exact same item but paying a lot less from my etsy shop.

I offer free STANDARD shipping on all small items to anywhere in the world but unfortunately I am no longer able to offer this service to SPAIN anymore due to postal loss. I am very happy to ship to SPAIN but the buyer will have to pay for SHIPPING INSURANCE.
Free STANDARD shipping is via Airmail outside of the UK and 1st Class within the UK. I am unable to take responsibility for any item lost of stolen or damaged using this postal service. However this is a very rare occurrence and has only happened sending items to Spain but nowhere else.
If you would like SHIPPING INSURANCE please purchase from my etsy store. It is $12.00 & is listed under the ANYTHING ELSE section.
I try to ship all purchases within 2 working days.
ALL SALES ARE FINAL - I DO NOT ACCEPT RETURNS UNLESS THE ITEM IS GROSSLY MISINTERPRETED ON MY LISTING.

LAYAWAY IS AVAILABLE, just ask if there is anything you would like and I will make a payment plan for you and reserve the item.

Please feel free to contact me if you need any further information on any item.
Thanks for visiting, Shelley x
