The Vintage Curiosity Shop purveyor of ephemera, books, homewares, gifts and vintage supplies

With a passion for collecting, a designer's and artist's eye, we love to hunt out ephemera and objects from the past: a curious object whose use is hardly remembered, a beautiful piece of vintage packaging from a bygone era at the birth of the design industry, a vintage object to use and enjoy...these passions inspired us to open the Vintage Curiosity Shop and share our obsession for vintage and art.

We like to find objects we think will be of interest and inspire fellow creatives.

Refunds and Exchanges
Please note that vintage items nearly always have signs of wear and age and I do always try to accurately describe condition and photograph as well as possible to show condition, occasionally I may have missed noting a flaw or blemish. Vintage lovers though really love the patina and some signs of age and use which are all part of the charm of vintage.

Vintage Curiosity Shop aims to find unusual often rare items, many industrial working pieces which will be by their very nature likely to have signs of use and age. If mint condition is important please do not hesitate to contact you and I would be happy to provide further photos and relevant details.

Having said all that generally my customers comment that the items are in better condition than they expected.

If you are not happy with your item/s, please contact me and I will reasonably handle any concerns offering a refund or returns if my listings description or photographs have omitted to clearly describe the vintage listing. If it's a case of change of mind I will also be happy to offer returns and refund item price, buyer paying for postage.
Additional policies and FAQs
A note on our vintage toys: They are sold as collectables, decorative objects or as material for an art project, they aren't really a toy for a child. Given the age of many of the pieces, we cannot verify the paint type, any metal material and also note there may be the possibility of small parts. So please consider suitability before purchase, in any event as with all vintage items, if handled by a child, they should be monitored.

Copyright notice regarding printed ephemera, type or industrial drawings available in this shop: please note that the original owners of any artworks or fonts would retain copyright and you are not buying the copyright license in purchasing these pieces. As part of your own art creation printed ephemera should be used in a way that creates new work but doesn't infringe on original copyright. The purchase of these pieces for the creation of digital scans to resell is not advised.
