Can I get a discount?
If you are shopping with EVE for more than one item, or a regular customer, please contact us for a bulk buy / loyalty discount.
Tell me about shipping?
Postage is only charged on the heaviest item when you purchase multiple smaller items. Multiple larger item orders also receive postage discounts. Any postage overages that are due are refunded after dispatch. Click on the shipping tab above to see shipping rates. Please contact me for a quote if your country is not listed. I only charge you what the Post Office charges me to send your package securely via a tracked delivery service. I am careful with the whole shipping process, and I am pleased to report that to date, I have never had a lost parcel; only a couple temporarily misplaced by customs, but soon recovered!. If you are not in a rush I may be able to offer cheaper shipping options Internationally but please allow 5-6 weeks for items to arrive via these services. If you are in a rush please contact me about express services. Customers are free to arrange their own courier if they wish.
What if I change my mind?
I operate a love it, or return it, no quibble, full refund policy. I appreciate that things sometimes do not fit in or suit quite as expected, and as a result I am happy to provide refunds due to the very nature of online shopping. Buyers will be responsible for all return transit costs but I will refund the initial postage costs, in effect splitting the transit costs with you. To qualify simply let me know you wish to return an item within a week of receipt.
Can I reserve an item?
Any item can be reserved for a 10% non-refundable reservation deposit for up to 90 days.
Could you gift wrap for me?
Yes of course! Just drop me 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?
I just about keep up with listing all the stock I have. If there is more than one item available the quantity will be displayed in the listing. If you need something that is not listed I do have access to an ever increasing range of contacts within the vintage and antique world. If I cannot locate an item myself there is a very good chance that I know a source that can. Drop me a note with your requirements and budget and I will let you know promptly if I can help.
Do you have a shop I can visit?
Sorry! EVE is an entirely Etsy based online business.
Can you identify and/or value my item?
I receive a number of requests to identify and value personal items. Whilst I am happy to share any general knowledge I may have about the identity of an item I can not offer valuations online.
