For United Kingdom postage I usually send smaller items by regular first class or second class post, standard parcels for larger objects, or with tracking, insurance and signed for if the item is of a certain value or Royal Mail requires it and always get proof of postage unless otherwise stated or agreed with buyer.

I mainly sell antique, vintage & second hand items, they are in used/worn condition and will show signs of usage. Signs of wear can be expected (i.e scratches caused by age and usage ) please take that into consideration when offerding on items. I will always do my best to mention any major flaws. If any doubts at all please contact me before the end of the sale and I will be more than happy to send you more pics (please provide non email address) or more information.

I post internationally. International buyers please contact me first for a Royal Mail postage quote before offerding, most international items have to be tracked or signed for due to the amount have items that have disappeared into the Bermuda postage triangle. Some places are off limits but I will consider anywhere if you are happy to pay the Royal Mail postage quoted. Please note postage for items over 2kg can be high. All international transactions are at buyers own risk, I can provide proof of postage to you only and damaged or lost items are the responsibility of the buyer.
