Privacy...............................................................................

We sell bric-a-brac, not personal information. Never have, never will.
Even less chance of us giving it away - we're Scots remember!


Terms & Conditions.............................................................

Common Sense Stuff...
We sell old stuff which, by it's very nature, is often the subject of debate as to condition and provenance.

Basically, 'what-you-see-is-what-you-get'.  Every effort is made to research our stock and we make a point of describing each item as accurately as possible. Flaws and condition issues are always specified in the description and images show issues of condition as well as the image resolution allows.  We are always happy to elaborate on condition by email, with detailed images where necessary. Please use the 'More Info' button on the shop item page and we will reply to your email enquiry as quickly as we can.

Some specific types of items have particular legal issues and whilst anyone with a modicum of common sense will appreciate the sentiment behind the following, it is stated for completeness sake...


Poisonous Stuff...
Items with residual contents (alcohol miniatures, perfume containers, tins of salve etc.)...
Any contents of containers MUST NOT be drunk, applied, or used in any other manner (even as originally intended)!  Contents are only left intact to preserve the context of the item being sold.


Electrical Stuff...
Anything which is designed to be plugged into an electricity supply is sold ONLY as non-functioning and decorative. 
It is the responsibility of the purchaser to have such items professionally assessed and tested before being used for their orginal function.


Knives, Sharp Stuff, Burnie Stuff and Booze...
You MUST be able to prove that you are of a legal age to purchase this type of item. 

We need you to contact us using the 'Ask' link on the item page.  These types of item  cannot be bought through the normal shopping process. You will need to send a copy of your driving licence or any other acceptable photographic proof of age (we won't accept dodgy Club entry cards!) before we will dispatch the item via a  'signed for'  postal service.


Returns Policy.......................................................................

In line with what we are trying to dowith this website, we understand that you can't physically handle the stuff we sell.

As a result we take a great deal of care in describing the item we are selling - particularly its condition.

As all this is done by hand, it takes time and some items may not yet be fully described.  If you are interested / curious, please just use the “Ask” link to ge full details.

The images on the site are constrained to 500x500pixels but if you want better quality images or different views of an item, please contact us for higher resolution versions.

Some items we have links to more detailed pages on our other site.

We would rather spend as much time as it takes to answer your questions (before you part with your cash) rather than have you disappointed as a customer.

Of course,  if you do buy and are unhappy with the item when you see it for real, we will naturally sort out the issue to your satisfaction.

We are of course bound by the UK Distance Selling Regulations, the details of which you can see by clicking here.
