About

The Will & Bequeath story

"Will and Bequeath" refers to the legal distribution of property after death. Maybe it's a strange name for a store, but I think the things we leave behind are important.

I think of each item in the shop as something willed to me by the universe. Once owned by someone else, each item has found its way to me, and from me, I hope it finds its way to you.

I like to imagine that each thing in a shop - whether a lamp, a book, a pretty piece of pottery or glass - will be adopted by someone who will love and value it enough to will and bequeath it to someone else someday.

That's the idea, anyway. So thanks for stopping by. Even if you don't buy anything, I love you for visiting.

P.S. Seriously... thanks. Starting a shop (even a wee online shop like this one) is a daunting bit of business. You find yourself lying awake at night thinking, "The shop! THE SHOP!!! Is anyone even LOOKING at the shop!?" You get up several times to check your stats. You wake your partner, he mumbles angrily, puts a pillow over his head, and retaliates by hogging the covers.

It's a tricky, tricky business, this shop thing. Etsy is even trickier, but I'm learning.

    I am a writer/editor by day, but buying and selling vintage is what I really love, so I am working hard to make a go of this whole shop thing. I curate, (sometimes craft or upcycle), photograph and ship every item personally. Hope you enjoy!

Payment

Shipping
VERY IMPORTANT SHIPPING INFO: All prices quoted for shipping on our Etsy site are approximate and usually refer to the cost of expedited shipping with a tracking number from Canada Post. However, we can sometimes mail things out for less (particularly to American buyers) if you don't mind not having a tracking number and/or waiting a little longer to get your package. Convo or email before buying if you would like us to try to ship to you at a discounted rate. (Again, discounted shipping can result in longer transit times/no tracking.)

Your item(s) will be shipped in 3 to 5 business days from your payment. We ship using Canada Post. Canada Post refuses to insure for breakage of fragile items under any circumstances, unfortunately. They will only insure for loss/non-delivery. That said, don't worry. We package your items securely, with lots of padding. If your item is damaged in transit, get in touch right away. We will probably ask you to send some photos and will do our best to remedy the situation as best we can.

Remember, shipping fees are higher internationally, and you will be responsible for any duty charges levied at your border. (Sorry, but we can't label items "gifts" or similar.) In addition, we can't control the postal service or customs officials, so if your item is delayed, please try to be patient.

Overseas buyers (as well as residents of Alaska and Hawaii), should convo for shipping quotes before purchasing.
Refunds and Exchanges
Will & Bequeath is a very small shop and many of our items are fragile. As such, we cannot accept returns at this time. Please read product descriptions carefully, take note of product measurements, and contact us directly before purchasing if you have a question. We describe each item as accurately as possible, to the best of our ability. Keep in mind that Will & Bequeath stock is mostly second-hand and will likely be in good "vintage" condition, which is not the same as brand-new condition. That said, some items are certainly "as good as new." Again, please read product descriptions carefully before buying. Nicks, cracks, chips, etc. will be noted.
Additional policies and FAQs
Gifts
We will happily package any purchases as gifts complete with pretty wrapping and/or boxing and a note to your recipient. Convo or email shop [!at] willandbequeath.com to talk specifics. (Note that these items will still be marked "purchase" on the shipping label.)

Protecting the Environment
Don't expect fancy shipping materials. We recycle packaging materials whenever possible (by reusing gift boxes and packing materials that would otherwise go into the recycling bin, for example). We sometimes use cardboard boxes from the grocery store, and we use recycled and/or biodegradable peanuts and recycled cushioning materials to protect our delicate treasures whenever possible.

Defining Vintage
Will & Bequeath specializes in pre-loved, handmade and vintage items, not all of which are necessarily vintage in the true sense of the word. We will include all the information we have regarding authenticity, original artist, manufacturing, etc. in each item description. Whether "truly" vintage or not, all items sold at Will & Bequeath have been hand-picked for their beauty and/or functionality. Many of our items are unique and handmade. Regardless of age, we take care to accurately describe the items in this shop, from size to condition. Measurements are metric, since we're Canadian. Don't worry, Google can convert them to Imperial for you.

Feedback
I would love for you to leave feedback once you receive your purchase(s). If you are unhappy with the transaction for any reason, please inform me of the problem and give me an opportunity to help resolve it before leaving negative feedback. Feedback can also be sent via email for use on our website: www.willandbequeath.com.
