Refunds and Exchanges

All vintage items are second hand and therefore are in 'used' condition. And due to the nature of vintage items, they are normally very old and often have small flaws from previous owners. I do my best to note any major flaws. There maybe some minor flaws not described which are to be expected with items of age.

Please be sure to read the full description of the item and look thoroughly at all the photos. If you have any questions please feel free to email me before you purchase. I do not issue refunds purely because something shows signs of age, use or wear. I also do not issue refunds if buyers have failed to read the listing and look at the pictures.

The lifespan of a vintage item may be shorter so be gentle with your purchase and don't expect it to do what it did when it was new.

No refunds will be given for items that are broken while in the possession of the customer, and I cannot be held responsible for anything that may occur as a result of using a vintage item in any way whatsoever.

I always obtain proof of postage for every item and I make sure every item is packed as safely as possible.

If a item arrives damaged, please contact me within 14 days of parcel arriving. You will need to send at least two clear photos of the broken item and the packaging as evidence before a refund is given. If the broken item was part of a set I can only refund for the actual item, not the whole set.

If you would like to return a item you must contact me BEFORE you send it so the appropriate return address can be given. It must be returned within 14 of receipt. Any returned postage will have to be paid for by the buyer. If the return is due to the customer not reading the full listing/polices section, then only the item cost will be refunded minus any shipping costs incurred sending out the order.

No compensation will be given for items that are delayed or arrive late as I do not offer guarantied delivery by a certain date.

For international returns from outside the UK please mark your parcel "RETURNED GOODS". You will need to make sure that you use the correct forms for your country for returning goods to overseas destinations. I cannot refund import duties or taxes paid by you for receipt of the goods into your country, you will need to claim those yourself, so please keep copies of all paperwork and proof of posting of returned goods to support your application for refunds of import duties and taxes. If there is any custom, tax or postage charges caused by your return of goods, I will deduct the cost of those charges from your refund.

Goods must be returned in the exact condition they were sent. Any damage will be deducted from the refund amount. If the item is returned broken then no refund I'll be given. Also Items which are returned with cigarette/smoke/cooking/pet odors or pet hair will not be refunded for.

I cannot be held responsible for any returned items that get lost in the post. Please ensure the item is returned by signed for/Tracked post as a refund cannot be given until the item has been received back to me.

I want you to be satisfied with your purchase. Items are described as closely as possible; If you're dissatisfied with any purchase, then please do contact me, so that I have the opportunity to put things right for you.

Vinyl Record Grading

**Mint (M)
Absolutely perfect in every way. Certainly never been played, possibly even still sealed.

**Near Mint (NM or M-)
A nearly perfect record. The record should show no obvious signs of wear. A 45 RPM or EP sleeve should have no more than the most minor defects, such as almost invisible ring wear or other signs of slight handling. An LP cover should have no creases, cut-out holes, folds, seam splits or other noticeable similar defects. The same should be true of any other inserts, such as posters, lyric sleeves and the like.
Basically, an LP in near mint condition looks as if you just got it home from a new record store and removed the shrink wrap.

**Very Good Plus (VG+)
A Very Good Plus record will show some signs that it was played and otherwise handled by a previous owner who took good care of it. Record surfaces may show some signs of wear and may have slight scuffs or very light scratches that don't affect one's listening experiences. Slight warps that do not affect the sound are "OK".
The label may have some ring wear or discoloration, but it should be barely noticeable. The center hole will not have been misshapen by repeated play. Picture sleeves and LP inner sleeves will have some slight wear, lightly turned up corners, or a slight seam split. An LP cover may have slight signs of wear and may be marred by a cut-out hole, indentation or corner indicating it was taken out of print and sold at a discount.
In general, if not for a couple things wrong with it, this would be Near Mint. Most collectors find a Very Good Plus record highly acceptable.

**Very Good (VG)
Many of the defects found in a VG+ record will be more pronounced in a VG record. Surface noise will be evident upon playing, especially in soft passages and during a song's intro and fade, but will not overpower the music otherwise. Groove wear will start to be noticeable, as with light scratches (deep enough to feel with a fingernail) that will affect the sound.
Labels may be marred by writing, or have tape or stickers (or their residue) attached. The same will be true of picture sleeves or LP covers. However, it will not have all of these problems at the same time, only two or three of them.

**Good (G), Good Plus (G+)
Good does not mean Bad! A record in Good or Good Plus condition can be put onto a turntable and will play through without skipping. But it will have significant surface noise and scratches and visible groove wear.
A cover or sleeve will have seam splits, especially at the bottom or on the spine. Tape, writing, ring wear or other defects will start to overwhelm the object.

**Poor (P), Fair (F)

The record is cracked, badly warped, and won't play through without skipping or repeating. The picture sleeve is water damaged, split on all three seams and heavily marred by wear and writing. The LP cover barely keeps the LP inside it. Inner sleeves are fully seam split, crinkled, and written upon.
Except for impossibly rare records otherwise unattainable, records in this condition will not be found in my shop.

Other Considerations

A separate grade is assigned to the record and it's sleeve or cover. In each listing, a record's grade is listed first, followed by that of the sleeve or the cover.
