(This is a summary of our terms
which you can view on 'My Page' by clicking on the 'v-for-vintage' link)
The photographs form an integral
and important part of the item description and may not be to scale. Colour
representation may vary depending on the monitor or screen it is viewed on.
Close up shots are likely to show marks that will not be visible to the naked
eye. Please examine the picture(s) and description carefully. Items are
described honestly and to the best of our knowledge. The description represents
our ‘non-expert’ opinion only. Any hallmarks etc. will be described as seen but
please note that gold and silver items will not have been tested unless
otherwise stated in the description. If you have any questions or requests,
please contact us in good time via messages before offerding or
buying. We want you to be happy with your purchase and we are always happy to
help if we can. Any boxes and display items are not included in the lot unless
otherwise stated in the item description. All dimensions and weights are
approximate and should be used as a guide only. Our items are usually sold ‘as
seen/ found’ and may need further cleaning - this is left to the discretion of
the buyer. Please be aware that most vintage items are likely to show signs of
their age such as tarnish, surface wear, marks and nibbles to stones etc.

INSURANCE: We post Monday to Friday inclusive and your purchase(s) will be shipped
as soon as possible within 3 working days of payment clearing. Special Delivery
items can usually be posted on a Saturday morning by prior arrangement - please

accepting sole responsibility for any loss or damage in transit. You can select
the postal service before paying via PayPal. Proof of posting is always
obtained and we are happy to supply you with a copy.
Multiple purchases: We are happy
to combine the cost of postage/shipping for multiple purchases over a 7 day
period from the same item location. The item location is listed as either ‘A’
or ‘B’ just under the item description above. Please ask us for an invoice when
you have finished shopping or we will send you one at the end of the 7 day
period. Wherever possible, extra items are posted free subject to the combined
weight and value of the parcel. Please note that the prices quoted for the ‘International
Signed For’ service only includes insurance for parcels with a total value up
to £50 and the ‘Special Delivery Service’ for UK customers includes insurance
up to a value of £500.You can check out the cost of posting via Royal Mail by
using their handy ‘Price Checker’ at http://www.royalmail.com/price-finder . We are always happy to answer
any questions or requests regarding postage and we do not profit from postage
charges. If we have miscalculated we always refund any significant excess.
All items are closely checked
before posting. We pack them very carefully, protecting pins, clasps etcetera
and ensuring that delicate items do not 'rub' in transit. We use new tissue
paper, bubble wrap and padded envelopes but may also use vintage or recycled
boxes to pack your item. Unfortunately the cost of postage is affected by the
dimensions of a letter/parcel but we will always ensure that your purchase is
protected rather than compromise on safe packing to reduce postage costs.
RETURNS/ REFUNDS: All sales
are final. Returns are not accepted on ‘sale-style’ listings. Most ‘Buy it
now’ purchases are covered under the Distance Selling Regulations, which give
consumer buyers the right to cancel the purchase within 7 working days after

to sale-style listings on .co.uk. Please note that the cost of any
return postage, by a signed for and insured service, is the responsibility of
the buyer and will not be refunded. Please see full details by clicking the ‘v-for-vintage’
