Our Vintage Products
The products for sale on our website are offered as part of a sale event, which means they are offered for a limited time and are limited in quantity.
Vintage items are by nature items that have been previously used. We source things that are as close to new condition as possible, but at times offer things that have visual character. We don’t offer anything for sale that is damaged (cracked/chipped/stained/etc) without noting the specific flaw in the product description. The photos shown with the listing form part of the condition description. Please take time to read the description and view all the photos that accompany it, in order fully understand each items vintage condition.
Vintage electricals sold are second hand. Please know that we cannot warrant that any second hand electrical item will operate or function for any duration of time.
To stay on the safe side, you must have them professionally tested before being used as we are not to be held responsible for electrical faults.
We are lovers of antiques & vintage but we do not claim to be experts. We research thoroughly & describe vintage items to the best of our knowledge.
The products for sale on our web site are intended solely for purchase for their personal use. You agree not to commercially resell any product you buy from our web site. We may restrict orders to what we deem to be normal household quantities.
After you have placed your order and we have processed your payment we will provide you with an order confirmation by email. It represents confirmation that we have received your order. Your order represents an offer to purchase, which we accept when we dispatch your product(s) and send you an email confirming that your product(s) has/have been dispatched. Once this email has been sent and the goods have been handed over to the designated carrier, the contract between you and us is completed. The sale contract is therefore concluded in New South Wales, Australia.
In the unlikely event that a product is unavailable, we reserve the right to cancel your order prior to dispatch. We will contact you by email as soon as possible to let you know. You may choose to have a credit to your account or a refund to the value of the unavailable product. We reserve the right not to accept your order in the event that we are unable to obtain authorisation for payment, where we suspect fraudulent activity, or where you do not meet the eligibility criteria set out, or otherwise contemplated, within these Terms and Conditions or our web site.

If the address provided is incorrect and the package is returned, you may be billed for the additional shipping charges in order for your delivery to reach you.

We reserve the right to refuse a refund in cases where we deem damage to a product to be due to fair wear and tear, misuse, failure to use in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions or failure to take reasonable care.
