We do not have a facility to buy 'online' from our website.

We have large photographs on the site and can always provide high resolution images and close up photographs so that you can be sure of what you are buying, also if you have any questions please always ask, either by email, if you give your number we can always call you back, or please call us directly.

We can also arrange to FaceTime, this enables us to show you the piece that you are interested in, and answer questions any about it. We can also give you a guided trip around the shop. Please let us know if this is of interest.

We can provide several shipping quotes for overseas clients or please contact shippers directly for quotes.
See below for a list of shippers whom we work with.

We can also provide delivery quotes for London and UK clients.

It is important to realise that colours on monitors do not always look the same.

We make a point in having photographs that accurately convey both the colour and condition of what we have on the website and that give a true impression of the item shown.

There is no substitute to visiting the shop and seeing a piece at first hand.

 

SHIPPING & DELIVERIES

SHIPPING QUOTES:

We are delighted to get you quotes for shipping, however if you accept a quote we will ask the shipper to contact you directly to make the final arrangements and for payment..

It is important to have insurance cover for both what you have bought and the cost of the shipping, you can have a door to door delivery where you will have to unpack and get rid of the packing materials yourself or you can have a full unpack and remove packing materials which, though more expensive, can cut out out a lot of problems, particularly if it is a piece of furniture or something large.

Below are a list of shippers who collect from us regularly and with whom we have a good relationship. You can always email them a link to the item on our site with your contact details and a delivery address to get a quote or you can ask us and we will do it for you and email you quotes.
