- An internet based antiques and collectables business located in Hertfordshire, England
- Customer focused, friendly, honest and easy to deal with
- Passionate about recycling, restoration and working with old materials
- Always looking to use authentic/original materials when repairing and restoring antique furniture
Buy antiques on line with confidence:
- Every piece is initially thoroughly inspected: age? maker? old changes to use? whats its life been? any old repairs? damage/worm/rot that needs repairing? old worm damage that can be left
alone or new worm that needs treating? wear commensurate with age that should be left alone? are repairs needed to ensure the piece is fit for purpose?
- We research styles/makers etc to ensure that the listing has as much relevant information as possible
- Every piece is cleaned, inside and out sometimes that simply involves oil/spirit mixes to remove dirt, sometimes just a careful brushing, sometimes the old finish (particularly wax) needs to be
removed and the piece re waxed
- We always take plenty of photographs and do not try to hide anything - old pieces are what they are!
- Our refund policy is simple (see below)
- We are easy, flexible and pleasant to d/w and our feedback supports that.
- If we make a mistake, we will be honest about it and rectify it as best/soon as possible
What we do not do!
- Buy pieces, take a couple of photographs and then simply list them on our website!
- Disguise damage/wear
- Impose our own style ideas on customers - everyone has different ideas / tastes and views about furniture!
