Sales Policies

Conditions and Returns

We value your business. All merchandise is guaranteed to be in excellent condition. Any manufacturing imperfections will be disclosed before the sale is final. Although it is reasonable to expect some wear from ordinary use on vintage dinnerware, we guarantee that there are no chips or cracks on any piece we ship.

Check your order immediately upon receipt. In most cases, returns will be approved provided that there is a legitimate reason and that you notify us within 48 hours of receipt. Items must be returned in original condition, fully insured, and properly packaged with unremoved price stickers intact. Return shipping charges will be paid by the purchaser. For damage incurred during shipment, refer to the shipping and handling information below.

Payment Terms

After an order is placed, the purchaser will be notified by e-mail of the total cost including shipping charges and insurance. We accept payment by personal checks, money orders, cashiers checks, and VISA/MasterCard. Orders will be considered cancelled if payment is not received within seven days of confirmation.

Layaway Orders

You may place any items on layaway for up to 60 days by submitting a nonrefundable deposit equalling 1/3 of the total purchase price, including shipping and insurance charges. Other payment terms apply as stated above. Layaway items cannot be returned.
