Our most frequently asked questions (FAQs):
Can I get a discount?
If you are shopping with EVE for more than one item you will generally only pay postage for the heaviest item, there will be no extra charge no matter how many smaller items you buy as long as those individual items weigh less than 1kg when packed. Heavier items weighing more than 1kg will incur a small extra charge. These discounts will automatically be applied when you checkout. Regular or wholesale customers should contact us for a trade or loyalty discount. Unfortunately there is no room for discount on single item orders.
How do I pay?
You can use any credit or debit card to pay through PayPal or Etsy Direct Checkout. To make a purchase add the item to your cart, review your purchase at check-out and enter your details. You will hear from us within 24 hours with confirmation of your order and tracking information.
Tell me about shipping?
All items are sent via tracked and insured postal services. You will receive tracking information within 1 working day after placing your order. Items generally arrive with International customers within 3-10 working days. We are pleased to report that to date, we have never had a lost parcel; only a couple that were temporarily misplaced by customs, but soon recovered. Items broken in transit will be refunded in full upon their return (we will cover return costs. In some circumstances a photograph of the broken item will suffice). Broken items are a rarity (currently 0.1%) as we prepare and wrap items very carefully for their journeys around the world.
What if I change my mind?
We operate a love it, or return it, no quibble, full refund policy. We appreciate that things sometimes do not fit in or suit quite as expected, and as a result we are happy to provide refunds due to the very nature of online shopping. Buyers will be responsible for all return transit costs but we will refund the initial postage costs, in effect splitting the transit costs with you. To qualify simply let us know you wish to return an item within a week of receipt.
Can I reserve an item?
If you would like to reserve an item we ask you to make a 10% non-refundable reservation deposit which will reserve the item for up to 3 months. This 10% deposit is non-refundable should you decide not to proceed with your order and covers the cost of storage, re-listing and clerical costs. Any other payments received will though be returned should you decide not to proceed with your order. If you decide to reserve an item just drop us a note via the contact form and we will send you a link to make your deposit and another for when you are ready to settle up.
Could you gift wrap for me?
Yes of course! Just drop us a note with your order.
Is the item damaged?
The vintage item shown is the one you will receive. The pictures and condition description above will highlight any major defects. All vintage items have lived a previous life, which is usually visible. Any significant damage will be mentioned in the listing. Feel free to enquire about any item and specific details on condition.
Do you have any more and/or similar pieces?
We are established traders of many years that sell vintage and antique items through a number of online mediums. We have many 1000âs of items in stock so if you need something that is not listed we may be carrying something appropriate. If not, we do have access to an ever increasing range of contacts within the vintage and antique world throughout Western Europe. If we cannot locate an item ourselves there is a very good chance that we know a source that can. Drop us a note with your requirements and budget and we will let you know promptly if we can help.
Can I just borrow this item for a while?
Yes you can! We have previously been happy to loan items for film shoots, tv shows, photo shoots, shop openings, weddings and corporate events. Terms are negotiatble but we usually ask for full payment for the item and then refund 50% upon return of the item(s) to us within a year. Obviously items need to be returned in the condition they were sent out in. Customers will be responsible for return transit costs and any damage incurred whilst in use or in return transit.
Do you have a shop I can visit?
Sorry, no! EVE and its subsidaries are entirely online based businesses.
Can you identify and/or value my item?
We receive a number of requests to identify and value personal items. Whilst we are happy to share any general knowledge we may have about the identity of an item we can not offer valuations online.

We do reward loyal repeat customers with increasing discount rates over time and purchase history, generally starting at 5%. Multiple item purchases automatically have postage discounts applied at checkout. Please see our 'Additional policies' section for more detailed information on pricing and discounts.
"How quickly can I get this?"
Items are usually dispatched within one working day. They typically arrive with customers 5-10 working days (1-2 weeks) after dispatch via our standard tracked and recorded delivery service. An express tracked and signed for upgrade is available at checkout and this usually takes 3-7 working days. A premium one man one vehicle courier is also available within Western Europe at prices starting from £199 for delivery within 24 hours of your order. We cannot guarantee any shipping times as we rely on assorted third parties for transit and cross border services. Please see our shipping policies for more detailed information on shipping.
"What size is this?"
Please check listing descriptions for sizes or alternatively photos for rulers. If you require further measurements send us a message and we will get back to you promptly.
"Do you ship to...? How much is postage to...?"
We ship worldwide via tracked and insured postage services. All standard international postage prices are found in individual listings by clicking on the shipping tab. International standard postage usually takes 1-2 weeks from dispatch to arrive with customers. Express upgrades are available at checkout. We give automatic postage discounts on multiple item orders at checkout. We may be able to offer cheaper international postage prices for larger items if you are not in a rush. See more information on postage in our additional policies section.
"Where are you based?"
We are based in the United Kingdom and France. Most of our stock is dispatched from France. We can dispatch from the U.K. by arrangement, often at reduced rates for larger items if you are not in too much of a rush. Personal collection can be arranged in Normandy, France and East Kent, U.K. Ask for details.
"Can you gift wrap this for me?"
Yes of course for no extra charge! We can also include a card. Let us know the message you would like to include and we will send you a picture of the wrapped item and card before we send it off.
"Do you have any more of, or similiar items to those listed?"
Nearly all of our stock appears on our website (but we always have more listing to do!). There is a chance that we may have different items and quantities than those that are listed here immediately available from stock. We also keep tabs on a lot of outlets in our local areas and also have quite a network of colleagues throughout Western Europe, so we may be able to help source your special requirements. If you would like us to keep an eye out for something or source an item just let us know what you are after and your budget and we will let you know promptly if we can help.
"Can I reserve an item?"
If you would like to reserve an item we ask you to make a 20% non-refundable reservation deposit which will reserve the item for up to six months. This 20% deposit is non-refundable should you decide not to proceed with your order and covers the cost of storage, re-listing and clerical costs. We had to introduce this method of reservation as a result of the large majority of people reserving items but never coming back to purchase their reservations or contacting us! If you decide to reserve an item just drop us a note via the contact form and we will send you a link to make your deposit and another for when you are ready to settle up.

Terms are negotiable but we usually ask for full payment for the item and then refund 50% upon return of the item(s) to us within a year.

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.
