Please note that items are usually dispatched within 10 working days, generally on the next TUESDAY or WEDNESDAY following cleared payment (7 OR 8 DAYS AFTER THE sale). If this constitutes a problem for you, please let me know via the messaging facility (not email) before offerding and I will do my best to help. Please be aware that I can usually only post once a week! I charge postage at estimated cost plus a bit extra towards expense of bubble wrap and boxes. Overseas packages under 2kgs are usually posted using ISF Registered Airmail, including insurance. This costs £7.75 on top of the normal airmail price; but it is worth the extra cost for safety. Items under £50 in value may be shipped via basic Airmail.

PAYMENT: OVERSEAS BUYERS; PAYPAL ONLY PLEASE!! NO MONEY ORDERS OR FOREIGN BANK DRAFTS, PLEASE. UK BUYERS; Paypal, credit or debit card (via PAYPAL), UK personal cheque or postal order. If postal orders are crossed, they can't be cashed immediately and must be paid into a bank.
UK POSTAGE: All shipping is via some form of Registered Post. All items are securely packed. UK Postage is via First Class Recorded or Special Delivery. Recorded items are insured only up to £50 in value. Please use Special Delivery option for more valuable items. Insurance up to £500 is included with Special Delivery price.
PLEASE NOTE THAT SPECIAL DELIVERY DOES NOT MEAN NEXT DAY DELIVERY - THIS POSTAL METHOD IS USED BECAUSE OF THE LEVEL OF INSURANCE AVAILABLE FOR ANTIQUE ITEMS, NOT FOR SPEED OF RECEIPT. I can't get to the Post Office every day, however items are usually dispatched within10 days of cleared payment, generally on the TUESDAY OR WEDNESDAY following.
INTERNATIONAL POSTAGE:I will post worldwide, using International Signed For (Airmail), Airsure or COURIER (for heavier items). I will not post by Surface or unregistered Airmail, please don't ask! I use large bubble and strong boxes to pack. PLEASE NOTE: COURIERED packages of ceramics/glass/ antiques cannot at present be insured for damage.
I use large bubble & new sturdy, double-walled boxes to pack, which may be heavier than normal boxes (and therefore a bit more costly more to ship), but offer a much greater degree of protection for fragile items.
