Buying from us

Please email us about any items you are interested in.  We will be happy to answer any questions you have, or to provide more images. If you let us know where you live we will also provide a shipping quote for you.

We realise that buying on line is not the same as being able to pick up and handle an object.  For this reason we always aim to give a description of condition which is as complete as possible – our aim is that you should have no unpleasant surprises when you receive your item!

All items that we sell carry our unconditional guarantee. If, despite our best efforts to describe items accurately, when you receive your purchase it is not as described simply return the item to us (return shipping costs must be paid by you) and we will provide a full, no quibbles refund of the cost of the item including the cost of sending the item to you.

We can accept the following methods of payment at present:

  • We accept payment internationally in £, $ or € via PayPal
  • we accept credit card payment using Visa, MasterCard or Maestro
  • within the U.K. by personal cheque
  • by direct bank transfer (IBAN)

If you would like to pay via bank transfer please contact us for our bank details.

Shipping and insurance costs

We will normally post all items via Royal Mail standard services.  We are happy to arrange to ship items via a courier service if required. We charge actual shipping costs and no handling fee. Postal insurance is optional, but please note that if insurance is not requested the item must be sent at the buyer’s risk, and we cannot claim or provide compensation in the (unlikely) event of loss or damage in transit.

We will complete the required customs declaration, and payment of any customs duty or other charges on receipt are the responsibility of the purchaser.

Please contact us for a shipping quote for any item.
