BUYING VINTAGE – Vintage, pre-owned and reclaimed goods by their very nature are not new, they have their own unique quirks & imperfections which is what gives them their character & integrity. All our items for sale show signs of wear & tear, commensurate with age and previous use. These may include: knocks, bumps & dents; scrapes, scuffs & scratches; marks, stains, fading & discolouration; snags, tears, peeling & wrinkling; surface corrosion; exposed fixings; old fixing holes; missing pieces; shrinkage gaps; paint remnants; small repairs; woodworm; corroded & missing metalwork; sharp edges; newly-fitted & replacement parts including fixtures & fittings.
THE IMPORTANCE OF PHOTOS – To help us represent our items for sale accurately, we use photography to display the item from all sides and from a variety of angles. These photographs are integral to the written description and can be viewed in close-up mode. Please examine the images carefully, using the zoom facility, to ensure you are fully acquainted with all aspects of the item before purchase.
OUR PROCESS – Vintage, pre-owned and reclaimed goods collect the patina of age on their surfaces adding character, style & a sense of history. We carefully & considerately refinish each item to enhance its appearance while preserving its integrity. All restoration work is completed honestly & sympathetically, respecting the original finish of the individual piece. We treat woodworm only when we can see that it is active with fresh holes and dust, using a 3 in 1 woodworm treatment. Hastily applied standard treatments target the symptoms rather than the cause & can contain harmful chemicals. We prefer to finish our items in a quality polish, containing an environmentally friendly blend of waxes, blocking any old flight holes to provide protection from future larval infestation.
