GleamingKist Distinctive Vintage Accessories For You & Your Home

Welcome to the GleamingKist etsy shop. At Gleaming Kist I aim to offer a fine selection of distinctive vintage and accessories for you & your home. My vintage finds including vintage jewellery, items are all sourced locally here in Scotland.

Why Gleaming Kist?
Kist: Is an old Scots word for a box or coffer. I hope this GleamingKist will be one filled with lovely vintage items and that as you browse you will find something to cherish.

Why Vintage?
Vintage offers so much, an opportunity to buy unusual and interesting pieces with character and a chance to sustainably reuse existing resources. The environmental advantage of vintage pieces is they already exist; no new carbon or environmental footprint is expended in producing them. Purchasing vintage allows us to appreciate the design and aesthetic of the past. It also avoids these wonderful items being forgotten.
Each piece brings its own unique history of use whether it has been cherished or forgotten. So next time you’re looking for a gift or a little treat for yourself why not give the sassy, sustainable vintage option a go.

What Vintage?
I select items that I personally like and I hope others might too. Vintage accessories often include handbags and purses from the past and the period contents that go with them e.g. powder compacts, lipstick cases and mirrors.
Men aren’t forgotten either as there is a wonderful range of men’s shirt & suit accessories, cufflinks and tie clips to be found from earlier in the 20th Century.
It’s also great to find some fantastic 20th Century costume vintage jewellery and to give it a chance to shine again. Some of my favourites are the art deco pieces but there are wonderful 1950s costume brooches that also deserve their chance to sparkle on display once more.
In Scotland there’s also a great array of Scottish celtic inspired vintage jewellery pieces to be rediscovered, they range from the classic to the kitsch.
I also like to include a sprinkling of vintage home pieces that can add period flair to home decor.

Frequently asked questions
Post and Delivery UK

Currently, I am only shipping to the UK. Due to COVID-19 there is potential for postal services to have delays and take longer to deliver items. Please be patient if your order doesn’t arrive as quickly as normal.

Items to the UK will usually be sent out by regular Royal Mail which is not tracked though I always obtain proof of posting. Certain items will be sent signed for as standard, where this is the case it will be clearly noted in the individual item listing.
Other than these if you want your items to be tracked please contact me for a quote.
I will be posting items out on a twice weekly basis during the current situation.
After postage, I would hope that you would receive your order in the UK in 3- 6 working days.

Combining postage

I will combine packaging and postage costs whenever possible if you purchase more than one item in a single transaction.

Items Missing In The Mail

If your item has not arrived after 30 days from the date of shipping please contact me for a replacement or a refund. The date of shipping is marked on the invoice for every order.

Vintage Condition

Vintage items may have wear and tear in keeping with their age. Every vintage item is examined carefully and best efforts made to describe any damage or excessive wear in the description. You are more than welcome to ask for further information about any item.

International Shipping

I only ship to the European Union and UK. Custom fees and any local taxes will be the responsibility of the buyer.

I use standard Airmail for International customers. Typical European delivery time is 3-10 days. I use international airmail which is not tracked so I can keep my postage costs low. I always obtain proof of posting. If you want your items to be tracked or expedited, please contact me for a quote.

Gift Purchases & Personalised Messages

If you would like gift items sent directly to the recipient (in the UK) please let me know. I can add a personalised message for you to any package.

All vintage items are thoroughly cleaned both before listing and again before shipping.
