About

Poetic Treasures. A Quest for Beauty

Welcome to my world of poetic treasures: Misty Albion. I am drawn to historic, sacred and romantic treasures that are imbued with beauty and meaning. Misty Albion is a place...a world ...In the wild roaming grounds of Emily Bronte, in the Gothic cathedrals, abandoned churches and old houses of romantic England, Ireland and France, I love to search out poetic objects of beauty that are a part of me, my heritage and the ancient history of the land.

I find beauty and wonder in the old and the ancient, the lost and found; in objects that speak of past lives and the hands that have shaped them. To me, such finds are bestowed with a beauty and poetry of their former lives, that makes each one unique.

I offer the best I can find ~ genuine antique finds and keepsakes unearthed from the ancient landscapes, churches and trinket boxes of historic England ('Albion') and from my travels to both east and west - across the sea to France and Ireland, and occasionally far beyond.

All of the objects that I acquire have a timeless beauty and poignancy that I connect with. I place great value on the authentic, the unique, the timeless and the beautiful. All of the treasures are chosen from the heart in that they resonate symbolically ....having a numinous quality; something beyond words; objects redolent of Fairy Tales, Dreams and Our Journey Through Life.

Symbolism is something I deeply connect with - I'm deeply drawn to treasures that represent the passage of life and whose symbolism resonates down through Time; to objects that represent the grand themes of life - Birth, Love, Union, Marriage and Remembrance. Objects that map the journey from birth to death and celebrate the significant moments of our lives are to be found in my shop. Symbolic treasures imbued with these themes enhance our lives by continuing to give meaning in our own time and in times to come, and, as markers of the passage of our lives, they act as loving keepsakes, mementos and timeless reminders of significant moments in our life.

I have a passion for antique stained glass fragments. All of the stained glass is my shop is genuine antique Victorian Gothic Revival, or older. Authentic and numinous pieces of antique stained glass are hard to come by. The antique stained glass fragments in my shop were made by the hands of the our Victorian master stained glass artisans here in Britain (the best in the word at that time). Passed down through time, having once been part of a sacred church window - in England, Wales, Scotland or Ireland; I cherish them for the beauty, history and timeworn presence which they possess.

The world of Misty Albion is a place where objects that have survived, beyond the lifetime of their makers, continue to live on in all their beauty and uniqueness. It's a place to touch the past but most of all, in possessing the unique quality of being humble, my finds allow you to write your own story and to create your own special memories around them; making them special gifts; Love Tokens and Keepsakes to be treasured or to pass on to loved ones as Mementos and markers of their own life and lives to come.

• Antique Keepsakes & Tokens of Love •

Welcome and Thank You for your visit.
My passion is for ceremonial, sacred & symbolic antique keepsakes & tokens of love.

All of the finds in Misty Albion are antique or vintage 'poetic treasures' - chosen for their unique symbolic significance and timeless beauty, their historic authenticity and presence.

Sought out with loving purpose and artistic eye, Misty Albion brings you one of a kind pieces that are imbued with a unique provenance and symbolic meaning - be it 'sacred', 'ceremonial' or as part of rich 'folk traditions'.

As symbolic markers of our life's journey - of Birth, Union, Love, Marriage, Home Making, Loss and Remembrance, my desire is to share these special antique mementos, keepsakes and tokens of love with you, so that they continue to live on in the lives of others.

Love Tokens, Keepsakes and Mementos bring beauty, meaning and significance to our lives; living on in the hearts and minds of those who cherish them. For this reason they make perfect gifts for loved ones.

As most of my items are 100 years old, they will often bear the traces of a previous life. Their provenance is part of what gives them their unique character and charm. My treasures are collected worldwide by artists, designers, concept-makers and those who value such objects for their nuance, their unique beauty and the creative potential provided by their symbolic value.
Please think carefully about purchasing if you are looking for a pristine item that is 'as new'. I photograph and describe any obvious faults as truthfully as I can.

Please take some time to carefully read the item listing and shop policies before placing an order.

All of my treasures come to you lovingly and attractively gift-wrapped and securely-packaged. Shipping is tracked, fully-insured and expedited, unless you request otherwise.

Customer satisfaction is my priority.
I work on an individual basis with customers so that you may have utmost confidence and a pleasant experience when buying from me my shop.
I offer a bespoke and personal service should you wish for a layaway option or require personalised gift wrapping, I will work one to one with you to meet your wishes.

VINTAGE ITEMS CONDITION
I sell antique and vintage 'treasures': objects, artefacts, textiles and ephemera - unique items that have history, and may show signs of this - it is part of their provenance, character and authenticity. I try to describe any obvious faults as truthfully as I can. However, as most of my items are 100 years old, they will often bear the traces of a previous life. Please think carefully about bidding if you are looking for a pristine item that is as new. My passion is for beautiful antique and vintage items that have a gently faded grandeur, so do consider this before deciding to bid.

I place great emphasis on providing honest, detailed and accurate descriptions and pride myself on my customer service; as reflected in the feedback left by my customers.

What happens if your item is not collected by you?
In this event the item is normally returned to the sender. Should your package be returned to me marked as 'not collected', 'unclaimed' or similar you will be charged a re-delivery fee. In addition, any charges incurred on the item's re-entry into the UK must be paid for by the buyer before the item is returned.

LAYAWAY
I offer Layaway on certain items; whereby you may pay in instalments for an item via a Payment Plan. A Payment Plan is set up for you to be able to make payments over an agreed time-scale and an agreed number of instalments.

The first payment of the Payment Plan acts as the deposit: the deposit is non-refundable. A non-refundable deposit secures the item over a given period of time for the buyer; excluding others from purchasing the item. In cases where the buyer fails to complete the full payment, or changes their mind either during the Payment Plan or upon completion of payment, the deposit is non-refundable.
