Scrapbooking Treasures from the Past

Hello and welcome to Tin Cup Vintage!

After moving to France two years ago with my partner Jon, I spent a lot of time indulging in my sweetest obsession: rummaging for second hand treasures. We have since moved to Wales in the UK and have added the beautiful pieces from our time in France to our gorgeous pieces found in the UK.

I am an actress, writer and scrapbooker, constantly looking for interesting costume or set pieces or a treasure with a story. We try and live as sustainable a life as possible, growing our own vegetables and being creative in the day to day details. Tin Cup Vintage is a perfect way of feeding our passion for old treasures and at the same time recycle pieces that deserve a new life.

Between, Jon, myself and my mother Cairistiona, we are delighted to present our scrapbook of vintage finds. Please do have a rummage!

    Cairistiona is my mother and co-finder of unusual spectacular treasures. As a fine artist, interior stylist and the co-founder of London vintage clothes shop The Dispensary in the early 1990's, she has style sparking out her fingertips.

I accept Paypal

If you do not have a Paypal account you can still pay. Etsy accepts most credit cards and will deal with the money transfer through Paypal, which is a secured connection.

Please note that buyers are responsable for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred.
Items are posted either from Lancashire, UK where my mother Cairistiona lives, or from Wales where I live.

I make several trips a week to the post office, so shipping is pretty prompt! If you would like an item posting urgently, please convo me.

The cost of the shipping includes postage plus the materials used to post the item.

The postage price on all items is for Tracked and Confirmed Delivery. If you would prefer me to send the item by standard mail for a lower price, please feel free to convo me to arrange it.

If you are interested in purchasing more than one item, please convo me and I can assess the weight and size of the items to calculate the cost of combined shipping.

We do our best to make sure shipping is accurate. If £1.50 GBP or more is left unspent, we will be happy to refund you the difference via Paypal.

Please note that buyers are responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred.
Refunds and Exchanges
We sell Vintage items and it is important to remember that these treasures have travelled through time and that their condition undoubtedly reflects this in varying ways. We do our eagle eyed best to notice all flaws and to describe these in the listings, but occasionally flaws can go unnoticed. We sell items 'As-Is' and aim to be as detailed as possible in the description and photos. We do not refund for items based on minor overlooked flaws.

We take great care in measuring items of clothing so that you can get a good idea of how something will fit. Some photos show an item looking smaller than the measurements listed. This is because items of clothing are pinned to the model with the aim to reflect the shape and cut of the piece. Please, double check your own measurements if you are interested in a piece. We do not refund for items if they do not fit.

If you have any issues that you would like to discuss, please convo me and I am sure we can sort something out. :)
Additional policies and FAQs
All items are stored carefully in our homes. Our homes are smoke free but we do have cats. We do our absolute best to keep the items protected and away from the cats, but cats are notoriously curious and we cannot always guarantee that they have not found their way to where they are not wanted! We triple check everything before posting, but occasionally a cat hair can go unnoticed. I feel this is important to mention for cat allergy sufferers.


Do you clean your items of clothing?

This can vary. If a piece has an odour or a stain that we are sure can be removed, we will hand wash it. If it is a delicate piece or we run the risk of damaging it through washing we leave it As-Is. Please convo me if you have any queries, I am happy to answer any questions!
