Postage

Postage discounts are automatically applied to multiple item orders. You only pay a postage charge for the heaviest item you buy. For example; if you buy ten items weighing 1kg or less you will only pay a single 1kg postage charge.

If you are not in a rush (4-8 week delivery window) ask about budget postal services for items weighing over 2kg. We can sometimes make savings of up to 50% by using slower budget couriers.

See current postage costs for fully tracked and insured services below:

All items are sent via fully tracked and insured postage services. The majority of our stock is based in France and is sent from there via La Poste. Some items may be dispatched from the U.K via Royal Mail, DHL or UPS.

We pack all items with special care and attention for their journeys all over the world currently having only suffered two breakages in many thousands of International sales. If items arrive broken we refund you in full.

All orders are sent out within 2 working days, 98% within 1 working day (larger orders or items may take a little longer to pack safely).

Items generally arrive with customers within 3-10 working days of dispatch, although on rare occasions it can take longer due to customs intervention. Premium services are available which bring average international delivery times down to 3-7 working days after dispatch. We provide a tracking number with your purchase but are unable to guarantee delivery in a certain time frame with any delivery service.

In some circumstances we can offer an overnight / same day delivery service within Western Europe via private courier at extra cost (For example – France to the UK from £250).

As with all purchases made internationally customers based outside of the European Union should be aware that they may be liable for import duties on their items as decreed by customs in your own country. Due to the variety of items we sell, the multitude of countries we ship to and their associated and varied international rules regarding the import of vintage and antique goods we cannot advise specifically on these duty charges.
