Shipping from France

I use recycled cardboard packaging ( but in perfect condition) and new bubble wrap, for fragile items I line the box with polystyrene.

I ship items using "la Poste"s cheapest international postal rates, but this does not include tracking or insurance ( to keep the cost down as postage in France is reasonably expensive)

I only charge 1 $ over the French postal cost, this is to cover materials and time.

Tracking and insurance is an optional extra costing 3.80$ available during checkout.

International postal delivery can take from 5 days to 3 weeks, at certain times of the year maybe longer ( ie Christmas period and French summer holidays)

I cannot be held responsible for items not arriving for a deadline.

I am not responsible for extra taxes or duty upheld in certain countries.

    I can not be held responsible for damage incurred during shipping if you have not taken insurance, but the percentage of damaged items during shipping is very low ( to date I have only had 1 damaged delivery partly due to my packaging which I have totally reviewed since this incident)

    If you do receive a damaged item and have not purchased insurance contact me and I will try to compensate you with a discount on your next purchase ( this is how confident I am about my packing)

    I am not responsible for non delivery of uninsured items.

    I do not issue refunds for damage or losses during shipping unless the customer has taken insurance.

    I was looking for an antique handheld mirror… what a glorious accident to collide with one I could never have imagined! WOW! My only concern was would such a fragile thing arrive undamaged. I hit the buy button and hoped. I am comfortable with long distant purchases of things I believe perfect but this one had me a little on edge. I purchased the tracking Laurette makes available which was absolutely worth it. This was beyond doubt the best packaged item I have ever received!! WOW! Product was described perfectly and arrived in perfect condition. WOW! Merci beaucoup from Canada
